Last day for Online Purchases


As Christmas looms nearer, owning a mail order company it’s our last day for sales on-line to actually get delivered before Christmas……. How many people out there wait until the last minute before either buying on-line or buying from a store? Thousands!

I remember working in retail when I was in my early 20’s and people would rush into the store ten minutes before we closed the doors. You could sell sand to an Arab or snow to an Inuit during those golden minutes! Men are different when it comes to buying. They should want to buy their “other arf” jewelry or something that shouts “You are special”. For some reason they often make the biggest mistake of the year. For goodness sake, don’t buy a household gadget… it’s such an insult and saying “I didn’t know what you wanted so i bought”….. a vacuum cleaner, crockpot etc. Women, if you are buying for a man, don’t buy socks or a tie….. that’s like saying, “I don’t know you and have no idea what to buy you”

If you don’t know what to buy your spouse or partner, save the day and go with the latest trend……

So what is the hottest thing this year? Well, its Ancestry dot com’s DNA test. People want to know where they come from, its’ knowing your roots. As the World seems to be more and more divided over politics and religion, people want something to hold onto. For Americans, we want to know our roots. Surprises and disappointments are inevitable, but what a gift.

So there you go. If you haven’t got a clue what to get your spouse, partner, parents, siblings, give them the opportunity to find their roots…..

Remember, Gifts: give it with love and receive with grace.
