Last Minute Holiday Special!


 LAST MINUTE GIFT IDEAS


About this time, I become desperate for last minute gifts or stocking stuffers. Here are some of my ideas:
*Candles – 2-4 long tapers in their favorite color tied in a ribbon – my standby
*Cookies in a clever box, either bought or made –try my favorite recipe below
*Pair of kitchen or sewing scissors
*Tickets to a movie theatre or play
*Toilette kit with all new things in it: toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, face cleanser, face cream or sunblock, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, chap stick etc.
*Fill a basket with favorite cheeses and gourmet crackers
*Fill a wrapped up old shoe with a gift certificate to their favorite store
*Give yourself a week in San Francisco.

Love one another and have a very happy holiday.   Sandra Betzina
