As Covid restrictions continue to ease and the sunshine has returned to brighten our days, the urge to get out and see people may be strong. I can see a lot of visiting people you haven’t seen for the past 2 years in the coming months in my (nonexistent) crystal ball. Of course, everyone has to decide their own personal Covid comfort level. Don’t feel forced to jump back into old times if you are not ready, but I digress.
If dropping in and catching up with (vaccinated) people is within your comfort zone, you don’t want to show up empty-handed. What do you get someone who may have developed new likes/habits during lockdown? Well, we have a few great, joyful ideas in our Spring Gift Guide 2022 with something for everyone and every budget. This mishmash is sure to put a smile on the face of everyone receiving them as they embrace brighter, happier days. Plus, they will prove useful (or fun) too!

Earth Month Alert:
Given that it’s Earth Month, if you are giving a gift, do you not use one-time use wrapping paper or greeting cards. Avoid using anything with sparkles as they are disastrous for our rivers and lakes. Find a piece of cloth, and learn the art of Furoshiki, a Japanese cloth gift wrapping practice. Small changes add up.
