I just returned from a three-day work retreat and training, during which we have our annual holiday party and gift exchange. This year, I bought my gift for the exchange at Brookshire’s, and let me just tell you, it was among the most coveted packages in the white elephant swap.
You can’t go wrong with a high-quality bottle of wine, a wine opener and a stopper, packaged in a gorgeous bag and all available on one aisle at Brookshire’s. How easy is that?
Brookshire’s is a great place for your holiday gift-giving needs this month.
I’m often stopping there on Christmas Eve for fun stocking stuffers of small toys and candy.
It’s also the best place to pick up a gift card to one of your favorite stores or restaurants like JCPenney, Barnes & Noble, Amazon or Chili’s. It’s also a wonderful way to gift someone with a Brookshire’s gift card, so they can pick up anything they need, from dog food to a Christmas turkey. Gift cards make wonderful stocking stuffers, as well as thoughtful gifts for teachers, co-workers, family and friends. In fact, I used to have an employer whose Christmas gift to the entire staff was Brookshire’s gift cards, and I looked forward to that treat every year.
The floral department also has a wonderful array of gift ideas, from festive poinsettias to fun, Christmas cactus to beautiful arrangements of cut flowers that would be stunning on a holiday table.
Need a hostess gift for a holiday party? May I suggest wine again (the wine bags are so beautiful), or perhaps a treat from the bakery she can enjoy during clean-up, or even a selection of hand creams (I love the rich, thick Burt’s Bees, especially after cleaning up after a party) from the personal care department.
Of course, Brookshire’s also has wrapping paper, gift bags, holiday cards and everything else you’ll need to make your gift, and their spirits, bright.
