BOX IT UP
Retailers are making it a little easy on the shopping-challenged. Many are opting to box together an assortment of items to take that guesswork out of gift-giving. Check out the new Olive & Loom woman-owned boutique for curated gifts. Homegoods has a great selection of boxed gifts and Barnes and Noble pulls together gift boxes for all genres. Sephora in Pike and Rose has the gift of beauty box sets. Check out Joyful Bath Co., a woman-owned business off Wilkins Avenue, for natural and organic body care products including hemp ultra therapy.
According to Market Watch, about $1 billion in gift cards go unused each year. Chill out! Here’s a way to make sure your spa gift card isn’t one of them. Book that message and include the appointment card reminder in the box with the gift card. Make sure you have a good handle on their calendar and there is enough time to make a change.
Your spa gift pre-booked means a little more thought went into your present. Here are some great spas nearby: Woodhouse Day Spa, Mynd Spa & Salon, Progressions Salon Spa and Little Oasis Spa.
Fashion experts say here’s what’s trendy now: cameo rings and pearls, statement earrings, and oversized chain links. There are great places to be on-trend for your gift-giving this season. Try Scout and Molly’s versatile stone matte bracelets. Make a big impression with a custom-designed piece of jewelry from McCutchen Jewelers, The Jewelry Design Co. and the Diamond Exchange
