SOME GIFT IDEAS FROM JULIE
FOR THE HARD TO BUY FOR,
perhaps a map or print of somewhere important in their lives. For example, where
they were born, got married, went on honeymoon etc.
A general search should find that, I do have a wide selection of topographical views and historical maps. America's, UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, The World, Etc.
Or do a search for their last name, you will be surprised what you might discover.
This of course applies to anniversaries, graduations, births etc. For example some friends of mine are soon to celebrate their Silver Wedding Anniversary, so I am having the SILVER BIRCH FLOWER FAIRY matted & framed for them.
Or for the little person in your life, the Cicely M. Barker Flower Fairy Alphabet makes a wonderful keepsake if you buy the letters to spell their name.
For instance, the letters below spell M A R Y !
