Last Minute Gifts

Christmas is all about family, friends, church and community. Seeing loved ones who live far away and reconnecting with those who are nearby but we don’t see as often as we wish we could. It’s about loving those who are alone at this time of year and inviting them to be part of our families too. Working with our communities to bring Christmas cheer to those in need is a very big part of the holiday season for my family. Tis the season to share the magic of this blessed holiday with everyone around us.

When we have a moment to relax, time spent sitting around the fire, enjoying the ambiance of the season. It’s hot cocoa or spiced cider, shared with a friend. Working on new stitching projects for someone we love. Telling stories from the past year and our hopes for the year to come, feeling thankful for those we will share it with.

Looking for last minute gifts that we’re sure will be loved, is an exciting part of the holiday for our family. We’re filled with excitement when we find that perfect item for someone on our list, and we feel like children, full of anticipation of the joy our gift will bring on Christmas morning.

From the planning to the feelings of love and joy, to spending time with family and friends, everything about the Christmas season is magical. Please stop by Forget Me Not Dreams and the boutiques at Make Mine Pink for all of your last minute shopping. We’re sure you’ll find that perfect something, that will be treasured for many years.

We wish you all the love and joy of this magical season.
