New Takes on Classic Mother’s Day Gifts

photo1Mother’s Day is almost here! Spending time with mom is usually the best gift of all, but getting mom something extra special to show you care is always good to do too. While you might have something in mind, re-think the typical gifts. Here are some substitutes or upgrades to the standard Mom’s day gifts:

-          Give a Spa Day Instead of Perfume. Instead of getting mom a pretty bottle of perfume that she won’t really wear, give her a day to pamper herself. Some spas run deals for Mother’s Day, so you could probably get her an enjoyable day for the price of a high end bottle of perfume.

-          Give Decadent Treats Instead of Kitchen Goods. As much as she appreciated it, your Mom probably didn’t want a blender or kitchen wear last Mother’s Day. Unless she loves cooking and baking, visit your local baker or pastry shop and get mom something she can indulge in.

-          Give a Figurine Instead of Bouquet of Flowers. Flowers are a gorgeous gift to give; however, they wither in a couple days. Give mom a gift she can enjoy all the time with a figurine from the Willow Tree Collection. These beautiful figurines will make her smile whenever she sees them. They’ll even make her think of you!

You don’t have to go with the standard gift to say thank you to your mom this Mother’s day! Coppin’s Gifts has a variety of Willow Tree Collection figurines that your mom, aunt, and grandmother would love to receive this Mother’s Day. Shop now to get them in time for Mother’s Day!

Gifts to Give During Hard Times

When someone is going through a hard time, we try to offer support in any way we can. When support isn’t enough, or we can’t fully be there, sometimes we give a gift to show we care. However, some gifts may send the wrong message in these difficult situations. Here are some gifts we recommend to give:

-          Photographs

Giving a nicely framed photo, or photos, of a fun memory or place is a nice way to show support during a tough time. This allows the person to remember the good times and focus on the positives

-          Flowers or Other Plants

A beautiful floral arrangement is a great way to brighten someone’s mood. Or, giving a potted plant is another way for your recipient to take their mind off of the negatives and care for this new addition. Don’t forget to put your arrangement or plant in something cheerful and decorative.

-          An Encouraging Figurine

Figurines can celebrate a variety of things, but for some who are going through a hard time, they can be a totem of hope. A simple figurine, such as a Willow Tree Angel, and a thoughtful handwritten note can be a subtle way to show support.

Coppin’s Gifts has a wide assortment of gifts to give to show someone you care about that you are there for them, even in the roughest of situations.  See decorative items, Willow Tree Angel figures, and so much more by visiting our website.

Why You Should Give More Personalized Gifts

We give gifts all the time! We make things, we buy things long in advanced, and sometimes the first thing we see is what is given. While there is usually nothing wrong with this method, giving a more personal gift is the way to go. Many think more personal gifts should only be reserved for special occasions. But really, we should strive to be as personal as possible all the time! Here’s why:

-          The Gift will Mean More to Your Recipient

Da Vinci Beads | Personalized Gifts | CoppinsGifts.com

If you give a more personal gift, your recipient will truly cherish your gift. They’ll be more apt to show it off, display it, and even keep it. We hate to say it, but if the gift doesn’t resonate with them, it’s more likely to sit in a drawer. Or worse, get re-gifted!

-          It’s Something They’ll Really Love

When someone opens their gift, you really want to see a look of joy and surprise on their face. The more personal the gift is, the more genuine that reaction is! If you gift a personal gift, get ready to hear a lot of thank you’s while they’re unwrapping and much later.

-          It Shows You Really Thought About The Gift

A more personal gift not only shows how much you care, but it also shows that you have paid attention in your relationship. It also shows that you took the time to create a one of a kind gift. A great example would be designing a bracelet with Da Vinci beads that captures your recipient’s personality. While this takes time, it shows you gave it thought and you really care.

Creating a personal gift for someone on their special day really brings a lot of emotion and care to a gift. Coppin’s gifts has a variety of gifts that can be personalized, such as Da Vinci Beads, to really create a unique gift. Shop today to give a fantastic gift for your loved one!

FAQ for Wedding Gifts

A wedding is a happy occasion but it can be a challenging time for those invited to attend the event. Guests are expected to buy some sort of gift for the new couple, but what do you get? Do you get something practical like a coffee maker from their registry or from a collection like the Willow Tree Collection here on Coppins Gifts?  Here are some of the answers to the commonly asked questions about buying and giving wedding gifts:

Q: Can I Buy Something Not on the Registry?

A: It’s absolutely fine because the registry is meant to help give guests an idea of what the couple would like for their new home. If you decide to away from the registry make sure you are still matching the style for the items they have on the registry.

Q: How Soon From RSVP Do I Have to Get the Wedding Gift?

A: One year, but ideally, it should be purchased and sent to the couple’s home before the wedding so they can remove the items from their registry before the big day. If you wait till after the wedding be sure to get the gift to them right away so you do not forget!

Q: Is Cash Better Than a Gift? Wedding Gift FAQ

A: Not necessarily, but it can be tricky. For some couples, it may be what they need to help pay for the new home, their honeymoon, or other things they want or need.  If you are uncomfortable with cash gifts, consider gift cards to their favorite restaurants or stores.

Q: The Registry Gifts Are Too Far out of My Price Range — What Do I Do?

A: There is no need to feel compelled to by something you cannot afford. Get creative and think about things they could use or that they would like. A great gift would be a collectible to commemorate their special day, such as something from the wedding line of the Willow Tree Collection.

Q: Can I Go in With a Group on a Big-Ticket Item?

A: You certainly can but it takes care to ensure it all goes well. Make sure everyone knows how much they are responsible for, who will order and pick up the item, who is collecting the money, and the timing of it all. Also, ensure the couple knows who all went in to get the gift so no one seems to be skimping out on a gift.

Why Do We Give Gifts?

Gift giving is a tradition in just about every known culture across the globe and it has long been a favorite subject for studies regarding human behavior. This practice of gift giving has long been explored and studied by psychologists, anthropologists, historians, economists, and even modern marketers. They all reveal amazing things and all studies have found that giving gifts is actually a very complex and involved process that has deep meanings for cultural, religious, social, relationship, and personal growth and development.

Willow Tree Figures are a Thoughtful Gift!

Psychologists have long said, and it still holds true, that it is often the giver and not the recipient that reaps the most benefits from the act of giving gifts. With there being so much value put on the practice of gift giving, whether it is during the holidays, during personal celebrations, or just for the sake of doing something good, there are many who wonder where to get the best gifts?

The key to gift giving is to give from the heart and to receive with gratitude — and few things embody both of those like our impressive line of Willow Tree figures.

The holidays come and go throughout the year and wit personal events such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and other big life events that call for celebration there seems to always been a need to buy and give gifts. It can be tempting to cut off the gift giving and during hard economic times this may be a sensible course of action, but it is very important that you not cue yourself off completely form giving or receiving gifts.

To do this is to rob yourself and the other party of the joy and sense of fulfillment that comes from giving gifts. Instead, consider limiting the number of gifts that you get or give and being selective with your gifts so they are truly memorable and special. This is where the Willow Tree Figurine collection makes this so much easier because each piece is crafted with love and is unique and beautiful, just like the person you are giving a gift to. So, let the gift speak for you and check out the amazing selection of Willow Tree figures that is available to you right now on Coppins Gifts!

Fighting Post-Christmas Blues

After the joy and happiness of Christmas it is very common for people to feel a sense of let down and fall into the post-Christmas blues.Blog2Fortunately, there are easy ways to combat this condition and our family here at the Willow Tree figures fan club want to help you shake the blues and enjoy the holidays even after they have come and gone!

1. Kindness. Continue the tradition of Christmas by looking for ways to show kindness to those around you in some shape or form, no matter who they are.

2. Time with loved ones. Even if some of your family is far away or if you have no family around after the season ends find ways to connect and stay in touch with them throughout the year!

3. The tree. You might not want a dried and shedding Christmas tree in your home come March, but keeping live plants in the home can be a big mood booster.

4. The smells. Much of what makes Christmas so special and what helps us form such great memories are the smells of the season. Continue to enjoy those smells all year round with candles, essential oils, and potpourris.

5. Send mail. Remember how nice it was to get those Christmas Cards in the mail? Send letters and cards to friends and family to keep in touch and show them you are thinking about them.

6. Giving. More than just gifts you can give of your time, talents, and finances to help others. If you choose to give gifts make them ones that mean something special like photos or commemorative figures from the Willow Tree Figures Collection.

7. Anticipation. Waiting for Christmas day is a big part of the tradition of the season, so keep that thrill alive by planning special trips, events, and family games and dates that let you spend time together and build great memories together.

8. Lights. If you don’t want to be ‘that family’ who keeps their Christmas lights up all year find ways to incorporate unique lights and colors into your everyday décor!

9. Create new traditions. Find ways to make every month special with unique food, activities, games, and make new traditions to enjoy with the family.

10. Love. The one thing that makes Christmas so special is the love we share and feel so keep the love alive for your family every single day. That is what the Willow Tree figures family does and we hope you will give it a try too!

5 Bad Christmas Gift Ideas People Actually Got

Christmas may have come and gone, and chances are you got a lot of wonderful gifts and maybe even some of the ones that were actually on your listshutterstock_221664037 this year. Maybe you got some beautiful Willow Tree Collection figures or something useful you have been asking for or many even some nice jewelry or a new video game you have been eyeing.

But if you got some less than great gifts take heart, you are not alone and to help you feel better here are five of the worst Christmas gifts people likely got this year:

Ugly Sweaters

The classic go-to gift of grandmas and well-meaning adults everywhere, the ugly Christmas sweater is a well-known and dreaded gift to unwrap on Christmas Day. Chances are you have gotten at least one of these or something very similar at least once and if not, your time is coming so be prepared! At least you have something for an ugly sweater party!

Vacuum Cleaner

Typically the gift well-meaning husbands give to their wives to make their lives easier, but this is a bad gift idea in every sense of the word. A great gift for your wife is jewelry, perfume, or something heartfelt, not something that reminds her of all the work there is still to do around the house because you are not pulling your weight!

Pencils and Pens

Pencils? Really — people actually give these as gifts to someone over the age of five? Unless it is a nice engraved professional looking pen or a set of art pencils most adults are not going to be thrilled with getting a gift that reminds them of their school days spent taking multiple choice tests and writing essays!

Glow in the Dark Toilet Seat

A glow in the dark toilet seat, who thought up this one? Sure, it’s practical in the sense you won’t have to turn on a light to go in the middle of the night, but do you really want to feel like aliens are about to abduct you when you walk into the bathroom at 3 a.m.? It’s best to skip the toilet gifts all together.

Socks

Coming in at number 1, socks are the worst Christmas gift ever — worse than ties because everyone seems to get them. Children have been getting socks as presents for hundreds of years and this has cause hundreds of years’ worth of tears.

So if you want to be the cool relative next year, consider you gift giving choices very carefully and go with something they will love like a Willow Tree Collection figurine from Coppins Gifts!
