Beyond bedding at Biscuit, we want to carry really great/unique/special gift items. It seems like at this phase of life I have been given and am giving an astounding amount of gifts. Weddings, wedding showers, bachelorettes, baby showers, birthdays, house warmings…It’s kind of a gifting racket. But my feelings on the whole situation changes whenever I get or give a really perfect present. SO I have been thinking a lot lately about my favorite gifts I have received lately.
I was very well taken care of for Christmas by my sweet husband who gave me a really precious and beautiful piece of jewelry- so snaps to you on that Petey- but other than that I think my favorite gift was from my mom:
What, you may be asking yourselves, is that?
You know when you get stationary printed and they send you the engraving plate of your address back? Well she and my dad moved around a lot- not unlike Pete and I have- and she saved all of the plates and had them welded to this box. It has always been on a table in our living room to hold playing cards or special items, and it has always held such a special meaning to me. I was so touched that she passed it along to us. Now I am debating whether to add onto it with Pete’s and my addresses. The space is kind of full and maybe it is time to start our own memories? But I do love the idea that there is a plate on there for the last address where I lived before Pete and I got married- and then we would have our first house in Chicago right next to it.
Obviously we can’t carry something like this at Biscuit- but I thought it might give some of you an idea to start a sweet heirloom of your own.
What are some other great gifts you all have received lately? Any ideas of items we should have in the store?
