Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday December 11, 2009 as we present "Last Minute Gifts"Christmas is just around the corner, but there’s still time to find just the right gift for that someone special on your shopping list this year. Whatever her interests or tastes, here are some last minute gift ideas that will fill her holiday season with delight, and remind her that you think of her all through the year.A gift for the kitchen is always welcome. Perhaps a delicately embroidered kitchen towel to hang on the over door, a toaster oven cover in the prettiest fabric and lace, white farmhouse canisters for holding utensils or a floral bouquet, or a cupcake clock to add whimsy to her kitchen wall. For a new mother, or a mother-to-be, a baby blanket in soft white fleece or a cuddly bedtime friend for a little one to love. Gifts for the nursery might be a cute cupcake coin bank or a decorative wreath of childhood toys and treasures to display.Do you have a crafter or stitcher on your list? She would be delighted to find a new project under her tree this year. Beautiful quilting fabrics and patterns or a scrapbooking kit for her most precious memories. For the book lover, a vintage basket to hold her favorite books, or a carefully chosen book to give her new inspiration.To add romance and beauty to her home, there are pillows dressed in ruffles and roses, vintage vases and dishes for her shelf, silk flowers in colors that fit with any décor, a Victorian vanity tray to grace the dresser in her boudoir.Does she spend hours in her garden? Think hand painted birdhouses, cup and saucer birdfeeders for feathered friends. An outdoor fairy house to inspire her creativity. Or if she prefers to spend her time entertaining indoors, perhaps a pretty handcrafted apron, a pair of elegant candlesticks, a broken china teapot to bring out whenever friends come to tea.Your lifelong best friend deserves a gift as beautiful and unique as she is – a one-of-a-kind sterling bracelet, a vintage needlepoint transformed into a boudoir cushion, an antique pendant hanging on a ribbon chain. Cinderella shoes that make her dreams come true with heirloom laces, jewels and vintage brooches.
A last minute Christmas gift can hold all the love and friendship you feel at this season and always.
