Gifts for ALL Occasions

Although folks often think of us “just” for Christmas gifts, we have gifts for just about any occasion that you would want to give a gift for. Not just limited to the list below, please check with us for ALL of your gift giving needs.

Top Baby Gifts

.

  1. Stuffed Animals & Toys is hot, hot, hot. The #1 is the animated Mother Goose (available in either pink or blue) who reads several different nursery rhymes)
  2. Baby’s First Christmas ornaments always make a special gift or a special tie-on for your package and parents are always pleased. I am surprised how many showers I attend where my gift is the only one with a Baby’s First Christmas ornament attached. Sometimes the ornament seems to be a bigger hit than the gift itself!
  3. Frames (especially if you put the cutest photo you can find of the little one) are always popular, aren’t they? Wait! Start off with this gift with a photo of YOU with the little one:-)
  4. Baby’s First Christmas Ornament SETS that carefully and beautifully house 4 blown glass ornaments for baby.

Our Top Retirement Gift Suggestions

Folks usually purchase something either related to the retirees occupation or their hobbies (which we hope they are going to be enjoying more of!) We also carry some more “generic” retirement gifts like frames, a humorous retirement clock, and mugs. This isn’t a large category or area for us but we always search for something that will bring you that “aahhh” moment.

Our Top 5 Secret Pal Gifts

Secret Pal gifts are VERY individualized but our top areas for these gifts (which often have to cost less than $5.00 or $10.00 each) are:

  1. Check out our “Stocking Stuffer” bins for your secret pal gift. This area has some fun unusual ideas and many (most?) for less than $5.00
  2. Fashion Jewelry, especially bracelets & pins
  3. Dip Mixes, Fudge/Chocolate, or other food products (we guess that most folks like to eat!)
  4. The decorative Christmas “bulb” necklaces that go out of here by the gazoodles (OK…I might have made up that word!).
  5. Ornaments always work out well as they are easy to “match” to the individual’s hobbies, job or lifstyle.

Our Top Five Hostess Gifts

The top five changes depending on the time of the year but our non-seasonal top five are:

  1. Ornaments are still number one in this category!
  2. Dip Mixes or other food-related products
  3. CDs (the musical ones, not the money type:-)
  4. Kitchen Gadgets…and we have a boatload. Ask us about our newest favorite….”Fancy Panz”
  5. ‘’‘Wine” Related Items. Glasses, mixes, signs….we got ‘em! Oh…and we haven’t forgotten you beer drinking ladies either!

Our Top Five Housewarming Gifts

  1. An ornament celebrating the new address.
  2. Kitchen and Gourmet seem to appear in every gift category these days. Maybe it’s because our selection is so fun?
  3. Wallhangings of a great variety can be found here.
  4. Serving containers of various sorts but one that’s sure to fit your budget and their style.
  5. Jim Shore’s Heartwood Creek Collection---I think there is just so much high perceived value that folks buy a Jim Shore piece if they don’t know what else to buy!

Top Five Teacher Gifts

  1. Our Gift Certificates are available in any amount!
  2. Notecards, Sticky Notes, Stationary, Greeting Cards---these are all items that most teachers appreciate as they go through so many!
  3. Calendars. Our Lang Calendars features a teacher calendar but also calendars for folks who like animals, babies, whimsy, etc.
  4. Gourmet Here we go again with food and fun kitchen gadgets! They are always appreciated
  5. ‘’‘Silver Forest Earrings” Ask any woman, teacher or not, that you know if they would like another pair of earrings. NO! We can’t own too many!
