Last Minute Shopping Tips – 4 Ways to Keep it Simple

| Comments Off on Last Minute Shopping Tips – 4 Ways to Keep it Simple

We know you hate running late this year, but perhaps you have been having a hard time finding just the right gift for that special someone ?

Well. You are not alone.

We have noticed that more and more folks are waiting to this last weekend to get serious.

But with such little time left to do any shopping what can we do to simplify our gift giving?

We recommend getting them, “Something they WANT, something they NEED, something to WEAR and something to READ.”

We were told a few years ago that the phrase WANT-NEED-WEAR-READ was an easy way to made holiday gift shopping quick and simple.

Let me explain…

You can almost always hit a home run if you follow one of this simple gift giving rules.

Get something they really WANT

Get something they truly NEED

Get something wonderful to WEAR

Get something interesting to READ



Frankly, here at Mountain Made, we feel that ALL art, whether it be an artisan piece of jewelry to a fine art painting, wooden or ceramic art or a hand-blown piece of glass – should fulfill a want…it should be given because you feel the precipitant will enjoy not only how it looks but because speaks to their heart as well.

Okay, we admit it you might not NEED these wonderful pieces of blown glass but nothing can make a holiday dinner party stand out while like these handcrafted glass serving set.

And of course we have to mention that this weekend will be the final days this season that Jason Probstein will inside the gallery, giving live glass blowing demonstrations. Check his schedule here.
