Gift Cards Make Great Gifts!

Hello Neighbors,

As you all know from previous posts I hate crowds.  So what better way to give gifts than to give a gift card.  I personally love to receive gift cards where I can shop the after holiday sale.  Gift cards also make great gifts for the hostess of any parties you attend.  You can always give the hostess a gift card for her favorite store or restaurant.  They are also perfect for couples with young children to give them a card with a gift card to a restaurant enclosed and a note that you will watch their children so they can go out on a date.  For gift exchanges you can give gift cards to unique bath and body shops, candy and bakery stores, or a special coffee shop.  For a unique gift you can bake them so cookies, buy a refillable coffee mug and give a gift card to the local coffee shop.  Another special way to give gift cards, if you are crafty, would be a gift card bouquet.  You could attach the gift cards to floral sticks and add ribbons, flowers, and leaves at your discretion.  You could do four or five five to ten dollar gift cards this way and give a gift they will remember.  Another idea for expectant parents would be gift cards to specialty baby stores.  College students and those who travel would certainly appreciate phone cards.  One year we wrapped a gift card in a small box, which we then put in a larger box, and then an even larger box, which we gift wrapped real pretty.  This would make a great way to give several gift cards in the small box and really surprise someone.

I personally like to receive gift cards for Bath and Body, my favorite restaurants like Longhorn, Coldstone, and just about any department store.  Gift cards give me the ability to purchase things in the scent I like, the right size needed, and cuts down on returns of gifts that don't fit. 

Neighbors, do you like to receive gift cards?  And if so why, and what unique ideas do you have for giving gift cards?  Be sure to leave a comment, let me know what you think, and share your ideas with our other neighbors here At the Fence.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
