I sell meaningful, hand-crafted gifts for women. We're at year-end and all my inventory is 20-50% off catalog price. I could make up a nice little basket of several unique gifts for $50. Most of my inventory is $10 - $20 right now.
Take a peek at the website, www.barefootparties.com and see if anything catches your eye. If I have it in stock and you want it, it's yours at a big discount. I promise I can help you come up with something that, unlike a gift card, will be appreciated and remembered long after the holiday season.
P.S. - On another note, since you're the mom of little boys, please look at the "Promise Me" artwork on page 7 of the catalog. It's an exceptional, inspirational piece of art and I have it available at a big discount.
