IMG_1766A thoughtful gift can be pages found wrapped between the cover of a book.

Books come in such a variety that you can truly make the most personal of gifts for any occasion. From the loveliest of photo books to the thickest novels.

When giving the gift of a book, commemorate the experience with a delightful message scribed just inside.

Note the occasion, the date, the to and from. And, make it lovely.

What a wonderful, throwback treat such as this one given to my great grandfather from his

sister Lena as a Christmas gift back in 1912.

Who knew a dictionary could be such a treasured heirloom?


As Valentines Day is once again upon us, ensure you are making the holiday celebration a special & meaningful one – despite the cliche heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and red roses.

A wonderful tradition to begin is the celebration of little luxuries, and I find it a particularly wonderful fit for Valentines Day as it is the little things in life that we should be celebrating anyways!

Set a little budget, whether it be $25, $50 or $100 and come up with the most special, meaningful, luxurious little thing you can to give to your sweetheart. Make sure it is something you would NEVER ordinarily spend that kind of money on so it is truly a luxury – even it if your budget is only $10 – imagine how creative you can get! And make sure it revolves around some small little detail in life to ensure it’s as meaningful as it can be!

Whether it’s a chunk of gourmet chocolate, a tiny bottle of fancy perfume, or even an apron, enjoy the tradition of gift giving.


IceMilk Aprons was featured today by a wonderful website Sea and Jae. They are a wonderfully thoughtful company committed to “reinventing the concept of gift giving.”
Well of course I simply love the concept of Sea & Jae just about as much as I do the concept of “heirloom gifts.” They have a wonderful array of gifts that are sure to be thoughtful and meaningful to the receiver. Everything from numbered sparkler birthday candles(my fav) to simple oversized matchbooks to beautiful custom tour maps for your next party or wedding invitation.

Simply a wonderful site that I do hope you’ll visit – especially with the special Valentine’s Day holiday coming up (please … not another box of chocolates). And a very special thank you to Jodi over at Sea and Jae for her kind words and for featuring IceMilk Aprons on their blog post!
