Website with nice gift ideas and tips!

So, I got my Mama one of these for her main gift:

She lives out of state, and has reached the stage in life where she doesn't really need any more STUFF, ya know?

I plan on making a year's worth of activities for her...I'll fill it with a gift card per month... to her favorite local shops and restaurants.... Mr. Christmas Heart is going back in October, so he can pick them up for me then.

I will also add some cash for things like the yearly garden tour and holiday home tour, etc. She doesn't have a computer, so I'll research the dates and such for her. I hope to also be able to include a little letter each month, with memories of how we used to go antique shopping together, or on the local garden tour, and that I'll be thinking of her, etc.

I'm sure she'll enjoy it, and it'll save me a ton of money on shipping!

The site has great gift ideas, too, and some great Christmas tips- I just searched the site for Christmas, but you can check on the Holiday section for great ideas on all the other holidays, too. There's even a Christmas in July article!



  1. I checked out their website! Pretty cool! I saw the gift card wallet. I wish I had one of those a year ago!

  2. I don't need one, cuz I tend to use mine up as quick as I get 'em...other than the freakin' Dress Barn card my sweet but clueless FIL gets me every year. I have two hundred dollars worth of cards from there!

  3. That site is great-thanks for telling us about it!

    Best wishes,

  4. Ahhh, love it sis!!! You always find THE coolest sites!!! And I know your Mama will LOVE that gift! It is perfect!

  5. thank you for visiting and commenting today.. :) I love your blog.. this is amazing. I have spent quite some time perusing all the posts. wonderful.. so glad to have found you!

  6. Tammy thank you so very much for sharing the website of the nursery that sells clematis. They are so hard to find here in our area, unusual ones anyway and I'm not sure why since I am in zone 8. Most all of them are hardy to zone 9. I will definitely be ordering from them in the early Spring next year. It's just too hot in our area right now (N FL) to plant anything. Thank you again for sharing the info.

    BTW, your blog is adorable.

  7. This is such a fabulous find!! Your momma is gonna be gleeful. She won't even realize what hit her until much later than Christmas a.m. when she is still enjoying this wonderful, thoughtful, personal gift. I added you to my blogroll and will follow for my christmas blog. I love your blog bling.


Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me!
