My wife and a friend did some cross border shopping this weekend and she came back complaining that she was hearing Christmas carols in the mall ALREADY. “It’s just too early for ‘Dashing through the Snow’”, she complained with dramatic flare, though she begrudgingly acknowledged they had travelled through a blinding snow storm to get there.
The Red Cups are out at Starbucks. That’s a cue guys that we should be starting to think about it.
And us guys dread it.
Christmas is coming when the women are going to look at us expectantly and we fear possible disappointment when they open up the generic mall gift card, toaster oven or pink golf balls which we frantically grabbed Dec. 24 with no time to spare to stand in the gift wrapping lineup.
It doesn’t need to be that way.
Call me. I’ll drop by your office at your convenience. Whatever your budget, we’ll come up with just the right piece for her. Maybe we’ll start with your grandmother’s wedding ring and turn it into a necklace or maybe we’ll start from scratch.
I’ll go away and come back with a design. Once you approve the design, your piece will be made and I can deliver it immediately or hold it until the 24th so she doesn’t “accidently” find it in your underwear drawer. Whatever we do, it will be a spectacular piece of Jewellery that reflects the gift she is to you.
Come Christmas, an elegant red leather Oro de Rey box will be sitting under your tree. You’ve been relaxed. You’ve been smiling every time you think about your gift since our first meeting and your loved one will marvel at the thought that has gone into the preparation of their gift. (and you didn’t even go to the mall!)
