Giving Gifts This Time of Year

Today let’s talk about the history of giving gifts, shall we?

The history of giving gifts dates back thousands of years! The (semi) modern reasoning behind giving gifts at Christmastime owes its start to the Wise Men who brought gifts to the baby Jesus. The tradition of giving gifts as we now know it came about in the early part of the 1800’s in New York City. The real question though is why? Why do we give gifts this time of year? And I think the answer to that is we give gifts because we want to show those around us how much we love and appreciate them! Whether it started with the Wise Men or on New York City streets, it all boils down to love!

But! Sometimes finding the perfect gift for someone you love is a tough thing! We talked a few weeks ago about how hard it is for me to find something for those closest to me! We’ve heard from a few of you that you could use some more ideas. We’re here to help! And make sure to read to the bottom! We have a special gift for you this Christmas season!

Does someone you love like a tasty drink when they’re out and about? How about something like this:

We have these travel mugs in 11 oz, 15 oz, 20 oz, and 30 oz. (The 30 oz is shown here) They are dye sublimated so the design will last!

Does your loved one need a new wallet? Let us break out our BRAND NEW laser engraver and make it something really special! Here we engraved their cattle brand. Turned out great, didn’t it?

Speaking of cattle brands, these are some leather coasters we laser engraved with their cattle brand.

No cold fingers with these lovely gloves with your loved ones initial on them! These gloves are soft and cozy! They come in black, khaki, and maroon.

Do you know someone who likes dogs? Let us design the perfect “dog mom” t-shirt for them!

Who doesn’t love a good tote bag to tote all their things in? We can embroider their name or monogram them!

Do you have a mama bear in your house? How about a baby bear? Or a daddy bear? We can put this design on a t-shirt, long sleeved t-shirt, or hoodie! The possibilities are endless!

Alright guys, are you ready to finish your Christmas shopping? Not quite yet? Still need a little help? Because we love you guys so much, we put together a Choosing a Gift Worksheet! You’ll find a TON of questions that will help you figure out the perfect gift for those you love! (And it’s not just for Christmas!)

Go here to get it!

We hope that you are having a wonderful Christmas season! 

Happy Holidays!
