Are you like many, including me, trying to shed those added pounds from Thanksgiving meals at the shopping malls? All the stores are now brilliantly decorated and playing Christmas carols, but do you have difficulty dealing with the elbow to elbow crowds?
To escape the shopping crowd, head to the lawn and garden sections of your favorite department stores, or visit specialty lawn and garden centers. You will be surprised at the diversity of gift ideas from only a few cents to thousands of dollars even for those having everything. To offer some help I’ll mention a few gift ideas that I would be delighted to receive.
The ideas are unlimited and the gifts can last a lifetime. Enjoy your Christmas shopping and if you just can’t resist buying more of these neat gifts than you have people on your shopping list, then let me know and I’ll send you my address.
