The Thoughtful Gift

This holiday season is going to be different. The really is no option but to change the way we do it.
Here in the store customers have already begun their gift shopping. There does seem to be a change in the thought process. And we believe it is for the better.
Customers are shopping local stores in their area, with a little less on line shopping. Local shops are the heart of your community. They provide you with unique ideas and gift items.
So this year we are asking you to do the following:
Slow down, and shop your local boutiques. Take a day to browse your shops and see what is being offered. You might just be surprised at what you will find.
Put some extra thought in the the gift you are buying and who you are buying it for. Gift cards are nice, but too easy give with very little thought. Save those for your out of area people. Buy the gift that you think someone will really appreciate. Doesn’t have to be big, but something you know that person wants, needs and just can’t do without. Make it a purposeful gift.
Wrap your gifts in usable packaging, like tea towels or a throw blanket. They don’t have to be expensive, just pretty.
Most of all, stop stressing about the upcoming season. It is going to happen no matter what. Make the most it. Our groups may be smaller and more intimate, but that gives us more time to enjoy who we have in our lives.
The hustle and bustle of the season can be overwhelming for some. So maybe it’s a good thing that things this year are different.

It’s Too Hot For A Duvet!!

Yes, it is too hot for a duvet. But not if you choose the right one.

Duvets can be made out of many different fills. Down from goose or duck, wool, or even silk.

Let’s talk about my favourite, the Silk filled.

Mulberry silk filled duvets are designed to keep your body temperature regulated.Not too hot, not too cold.

The breathability of the silk lets excess heat escape, letting you have a more enjoyable sleep. Silk duvets drape around your body, giving you less cold spots. In the winter months it keeps you warm on those frosty nights. In the summer , because it breathes, keeping you cool.

These duvets are light weight. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t like a heavy covering. Also great for arthritis sufferers. Sometimes the weight of blankets can be an issue for them. Myself included. I find them easy to move in the middle of the night.

This is an all year duvet. No need to switch it out seasonally. I started using on 2 years ago, and haven’t taken it off my bed yet.
