Busy day here, hence the delay in adding to the gift guide countdown.
MaineMan and Agnes are sound asleep so this will be brief.
I don’t know how I ended up with this catalog, but I’ve kept it because I folded a few pages down for gift ideas. Uncommon goods. They’re based in Brooklyn (so if you’re in New York you may get quick shipping), and while some of the gifts are cheezy, like the personalized state necklaces, the majority of the stuff is actually quite cute, like the soup and sandwich ceramic trays and the cloud tumblers.
As far as charities go, the one I’ve chosen for today is the California Wildlife Center. I volunteered for them for several weeks earlier this year, though have been on hiatus since being laid off, and they can always use your help. It’s expensive to feed and care for all the sick, hungry animals, but they must and I look forward to rejoining their team soon.
