I've noticed that people really are shopping early this year so I've decided to help out by writing a series of "list" blogs, starting with this group of stocking stuffers. The art of giving the perfect gift is a difficult one to perfect, but we're here to help.The ever popular ENVIROSAX BAG • $9.50 Open they measure 19.5" by 16.5", rolled up, a mere 3.5" by 1.5". Everyone who has one loves them. Love is good. Reusing bags is good. Give them to everyone you know. World peace will soon manifest itself all over the planet as a result of your wise and generous gifting.BOOK DARTS • $8.50 Not just the page, mark the actual line that you want to get back to. It's no longer necessary to beat up the poor book by bending page corners and marking it all up with those hideous highlighter colors. A nice little tin of 50 archivally correct Book Darts will make the avid readers on your list very content.ORLA KIELY FLIP BOOKS • $5.25 Just the perfect place to jot down a few thoughts, a grocery list or the phone number of that cute guy you met at the grocery store. Interestingly, they pair up really well with any of our Orla Kiely handbags (which do not fit into the "under $10" category). DOG AND CAT MAGNETS • $9.00/set of four There are Dog people and there are Cat people. We have Dog magnets and Cat magnets by local designers Three by Three. Any gift that takes care of a category is useful around the holidays. We hope this "themed" gift idea helps you check a few people off your list. (FYI, we also carry lots of 3 x 3 magnet boards, hooks and picture frames. They are all reasonably priced and really cool.)TEA LIGHTS • TAPERS • $8.50 Really a catch all gift around this time of year. We get our beeswax candles from our friends at Bluecorn Naturals in Colorado. They burn clean, come in yummy colors; Pistachio, Ruby and Creme.There will be more handy lists to come...it's that time of year.
