Do you participate in Black Friday? I do not. For most of my married life Friday was the day for our second Thanksgiving feast so I couldn’t participate even if I had wanted to.
Sometimes I will order things on Cyber Monday. This year I am really going to try to shop locally.
I will try to shop:
Mom and pop hardware store near my house that also has unique gift items
Museum gift shops
Not locally owned but great sources for presents:
Book store – also has toys, games, puzzles
Many years I will do a theme like slippers or blankets for all
Umbrellas make a great gift
Car kit with scraper for the winter
An experience like a play gives family something to look forward to
Membership at zoo or museum is a great gift
A few more favorites this week:
These are so good! I may not buy them again because they were that irrestible!
This is what $20 of popcorn looks like. I treated my students to this while watching a movie during our short week. It is from GFS – Gordon Food Service. It is like a warehouse store but without a membership.
This is really good. It does have 150 calories but I was thinking this would make a nice afternoon winter treat on the weekends. You put the powder in your mug and then brew the coffee on top.
This book may just be one of my favorite Shopaholic books. It is also a good reminder before the crazy of the holiday.
We had a beautiful day Monday and I sat outside for a bit after school.
What were your favorites this week? I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving or that you are still in the midst of your celebrations!
