Happy Black Friday!
I hope you had a wonderful Turkey Day and you’re stuffed as silly as I am. Please feel free to follow my lead as I don my holiday uniform – any outfit with 4-way stretch. Life without elastic is life not worth living.
But you’re probably not here to read about elastic (though, it’s a fascinating and under-appreciated textile). It’s the craziest shopping day of the year, and if you’re anything like me, you’re trying to score the best Christmas gifts for your friends and family with the least amount of stress (and risk of getting trampled!)
I have an (admittedly biased) idea that should solve all your problems. Imagine this…
It’s Christmas morning and the family is gathered around the ornately decorated tree. The scent of pine and joy fills the air. Happy faces scramble to find their names on the brightly wrapped gifts.
Grandma unwraps hers… it’s a dual-set of Island Affairs and Snow Affairs! She tosses her cane in the air in excitement!
Grandpa unwraps his… it’s a dual-set of Island Affairs and Snow Affairs! He yelps in joy sending his dentures flying across the room.
Your partner unwraps his/hers… it’s a dual-set of Island Affairs and Snow Affairs! He/She blushes and sends you a secret look that tells you bonga bonga is in your near future.
Fluffy, your crippled kitten unwraps hers… it’s a dual-set of Island Affairs and Snow Affairs! She doesn’t react because cats can’t read.
Everyone is thrilled! They hoist you up and carry you through the house, chanting your name. Oh, what a wonderful holiday! One that goes down in history! And it’s all because of you, the thoughtful gift-giver.
So consider the Paths to Passion books for a fun gift that’s perfect for the person who has everything!
And let’s not forget those White Elephant gift exchanges and Secret Santas! Especially those office ones. 😉
