Enchanted gift giving and a holiday giveaway!

Hi there. Really hope this shows up when its supposed to (Sunday morning) I have for the second time tried to schedule this in advance (first time I tried it, I was unsuccessful). So hope you are seeing this on Sunday morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving! Anyone taking advantage of black Friday? We are not home but even if I was, that "scene"is just not my thing. I am very claustrophobic and just don't see the point of purposely delving into such chaos. Lets face it......retailers are going to be having all kinds of deals right up to Christmas eve.  How are you doing on your own holiday gift giving list? Like me and haven't bought a single gift? I am gearing up to start though right after Thanksgiving.
 I have gotten several emails/inquires about suggestions for my favorite gifts from my shop. As I started to reply, I thought this might also make a great post as well as answer questions some might have. So here's a few of my favorite things and some suggestions to boot from my online shop. To celebrate the season I am also hosting a wonderful giveaway, all details on the bottom....
(Click on item name to see it in my online shop)
My favorite gifts for under $50.00......there are many wonderful, unique and special items. The monogrammed items are fabulous and personalized. They also ship out really fast, generally 3 days after orders been placed. Tell me who wouldn't love to receive a box of gorgeous heavenly scented soaps bearing their initials! Ditto a candle. Anything silver always works and linens and monogrammed anything are about as wonderful as you can get! And lets not even begin to talk about the fabulousness of the newly added napkin rings.....
This elegant candle in a crystal urn is fabulous....and is a gorgeous decorative vase when the candle is gone....$45.00

Gorgeous crested tray, perfect for a bath vanity or nightstand, for men, great for wallet, coins and watches and for women rings, small perfume bottles, etc....$45.00
