Tokens of Love

Love is meant to be expressed all year round, but February 14th is the official day when love and friendship is celebrated around the world — Saudi Arabia being the exception. In most countries this special day is observed by exchanging gifts with your sweethearts, but others have different traditions. In Korea and Japan only the girls give presents to the guys on that day, and March 14th (know as White Day) is when the guys do the gifting. Did you know that in Japan the girls actually have the luxury of choosing their own gift? I'm sure most gals out there would love to do the same. So in case you haven't already bought a token of love for your honey, here are some cool ideas for your consideration. Hurry, only one week left!

Holiday Gift Guide: part 6

Sadly, this is the last of my Holiday Gift Guide series. I've had a blast compiling all the cool stuff I found during the process. I hope it has been a great help to you, and made your shopping a little less stressful. This time it's all about the home. I found a selection of lovely items that can be the perfect present for a host, or hostess, or that last-minute gift you were not counting on. I know some people feel that giving home-related presents can be an imposition on someone's taste. But if you know your friends well, you shouldn't have a problem. In any case, chocolates are always appreciated. Happy giving... and receiving, of course!

If you're having a hard time deciding what to give this holiday season, you can always make a statement by helping the environment. Since this is such a hot cause, almost every store and website out there have sustainable gifts. From furniture to personal accessories, the selections are endless. Here are some that I thought are fun and different. And of course, there is something for everyone in the family — even for Fido. So give green and help make our planet a better place to live.

Holiday Gift Guide: part 4

Growing up, my favorite part of the holidays was the anticipation of opening up all my presents. I remember sneaking up under the tree any chance I got to shake the gift boxes and try to guess what was in them. The best thing about it, is that I don't remember ever being disappointed with the things I got. The trend these days it to give kids anything and everything electronic. I think they're missing out on some of the joy that old fashion toys can also bring. When gathering the ideas for this list, I kept that in mind. I'm sure that any of these goodies will make kids very happy. Stay tuned for next week's list of environmentally friendly treats.
