Remember when I shared my art dilemma about which photo art to choose for the perfect gift?
Well, the winner has been decided and I *really* hope the recipient loves it. Do you love it? #pleasesayyes Quite honestly, I almost went with that Texas state photo art. It was so unique, but this one won out just because of the number of photos I could include. Trust me when I tell you that the state art will find a place in my home eventually. It was just so great. Minted has awesome Cyber Monday deals going on today. For the photo lover or party thrower in your life, you will not go wrong with their things.
If you missed last Friday’s post about my favorite religious gifts (and deals!) for the toddler to teen, and beyond, in your life, most of the deals are still live through today. Hooray!
I know I have my favorite, go-to places for gifts. There is Fiestaware on sale (with free shipping) at Macy’s, adorable plates and stationery at Olliegraphic, art and photo deals at Minted and Shutterfly, Amazon (always Amazon) and Gymboree and Gap for clothes. I definitely shopped small, and big, this year. Local and far away. But most of it, if not all, has been online. Praise Jesus for the internet.
Please share your favorite deals and steals in the comments. I’m always on the lookout for new places to love and new businesses to patronize. And, if you’re a small business owner yourself, consider it free advertising. I hope you’ll share your business link in the comments for all my readers.
But through all the hustle of the holidays, I hope you do one very important thing: Be still.
God is there. He’s in the quiet of your morning (even if it is only for 3.5 seconds). He waits for you in carline. He sees you as you prepare dinner for your family. He’s always waiting. Never forget that as we enter into the Advent season. It’s a time of beautiful preparation. So, while I’ll be busily clicking on deals for Cyber Monday tomorrow, I won’t be starting my day without some quiet time with God. Perhaps you’ll consider joining me.
