CB Gift Guide

It's already started...we hear it exhausted shopper comes in and begs us to them them find something, anything for their hard to shop for Grandma, bff, faithful assistant, child's teacher, mentor, sheep wrangler (just wanted to see if you were paying attention), or their darling Aunt Mildred.

One of the hardest people on our list to buy for is my 80 year old mother. Josh and Danielle always want to find just the right gift for this special lady, but she's 80 and doesn't want or need anything. I know, I know - I can hear you jumping up and down screaming - YES - my Grandma's the same way!! For your sweet Grandma, Great Grandma, Nana, one of these beautiful pins from the Maximal Art collection is sure to bring a smile. These little works of art are 14k gold over pewter with Australian crystal embellishments. The nice thing is that when she wears it out, it's sure to elicit conversation..."oh you're a Grandmother? So am I... how many grands do you have?" and so on.

Your mentor, the one who has cheered you on at every turn, basked in your successes and shoved you back in the game after you screwed up, they deserve a metal. Since they don't make real "mentor medals" give em something cool they can actually use! The Mini Spoutnik Pen from Recife is the ultimate in cool. The traditional craft techniques used to manufacture these pens insure that each pen is unique as the daring combination of color can never be identically reproduced. A one of a kind for a one of a kind.

Darling Aunt Mildred, she's the fabulous aunt who took you to your first r-rated movie, let you taste your first champagne, and bought you that one to die for gift that your folks wouldn't spring for, but that you just had to have or you would die. The Queen Bee Necklace from Dogeared will remind her that she's royalty! It's the least you can do...

Sorry I didn't get to the sheep wrangler, bff, faithful assistant or child's teacher tonight, but stay tuned.
