12 Bright Gift Ideas For Travel Lovers For Christmas Time
It’s the brightest time of the year! Everyone relaxes and look forward to Christmas and bonding over meals and parties. Lots of invites? That’s great. I feel excited too. I’m bubbling over with bright gift ideas.
If you are clueless like little fish, can’t sew, knit, cook or bake to save your life? Not crafty either? Making a present is definitely out of the question. Some of you might remember Mork giving Mindy the original “Lord of the (dead flies) Rings”. URGH!!!
Will You Love Me and Love My Gift Too?
Sometimes I get that sinking feeling and a fear that my thoughtful gift will get a polite “thank you”. To be stored away until the next office party and be recycled. I always wanted to offer nice thoughtful presents for family, friends and business associates. Short of buying a bottle of wine, I’m basically clueless.
What do you give a Traveller?
Fear not. If your friend loves to travel like little fish. <Big smile, squinty eyes here.> SmartDory might be able to help. Baby fish helped compiled this list for anyone who loves to travel. Want to travel. Travel lots. Dream of traveling. Traveling! And also to help some other clueless folks like little fish.
12 Gift Ideas for 12 Days of Christmas
Baby fish thinks of everything it seems. Little fish has one conclusion. She has A bigger clam purse than Mama. Here we go for the fun of sharing! First things first. Little fish says show the clam purse. Baby says we show perfume. Oh well…
#1 Marc Jacobs Dot Solid Perfume Necklace
One of my pet peeves. How to smell nice when traveling if I can’t bring along a body mist! You know us fish. We like a splash. But if we can’t’ then a mist-ter is good. (Sounds wrong, ahem!) Alas, there’s this thing called liquid regulations and not being able to board with any bottle over 100 ml.
Nothing beats a luxurious solid perfume treatment. This sweet gift is the wearable version of the bestselling Dot fragrance. I just love this. Period. Dot. (pun intended!)
Dot butterfly has an oversized, artificial pearl at its center. The top of the pendant swivels to reveal the solid perfume encased in the smooth gold of the pendant base. Run your finger over the solid perfume. Heat it a little, and apply. GET Marc Jacobs Dot for Women Eau de Parfum 100ml is now 91% OFF!!!
