Not-So-Early Gift Giving Ideas

If you’ve been to a store in the last day or two, you’ve seen the halls already decked with Christmas trees, fake snow, and piped-in holiday music. Who hasn’t missed Burl Ives and Brenda Lee singing-in another holiday season?  As much as it seems too early to think about the holidays, Hanukkuh is just six weeks away and Christmas is seven weeks away. Our Not-So-Early gift ideas can be purchased by telephone and shipped to your door just about anywhere, in plenty of time for the holidays. We will also hold your paid purchases for you and ship at your convenience, so you do not have to hide your presents from curious loved ones. Purchase any item below by November 17, 2014 and receive a 10% discount.
