Questions from A Friend to Get You Thinking!

coppins giftsSometimes it’s hard to figure out what to buy from Coppin’s Gifts.  (We know, we have a hard time ourselves sometimes!)  There’s just too many great things to choose from.  That’s why we always like shopping with friends.  Coppin’s Gifts has a few friends out there in Internet Land, so we like to ask them some shopping questions.  Just imagine you’re out shopping with your best girl friend.  What would she have to say about Coppin’s Gifts?  Well, our friend Aubrey from My Simple Everyday helped us do a little bit of shopping.My Simple Everyday

What are your favorite DaVinci Beads on our site?  Why?
I think all of the beads are super cute and can probably argue that all of them are my favorite.  But if I had to choose, I really love the Glass Heart Dangles combined with the Cat Eye Art Glass beads.  I think it’s great that they come in different colors so you can mix and match the beads according to your outfit of the day!

If you had to pick one of the Webkinz to take home, which one would it be?
Sunshine, of course! Summer is my favorite time of the year because the sun doesn’t set until way past 8 and there’s something about the light that makes me such a happier person.  I like to adhere to the “glass is half full” motto, so Sunshine and I would make a perfect match!

What else do you have to say about our store?
Coppin’s Gifts has something for everyone whether it be your aunt who’s an avid Disney Jim Shore collector, or your son who loves animals and would treasure a Pillow Pet for years.  I firmly endorse businesses who truly care about their customers and Coppin’s Gifts shows this with their 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Learn as You Go: Fun New Blog!

We love checking out what’s happening in the big world of blogging.  We came across Jacki, fabulous blog-mistress of Learn as You Go, and we liked her right away.  Her blog is pretty new, but we have a feeling she’s going to do some wonderful things with it.  After all, she’s already won an award!  (That’s right, one of her blogging buddies gave her the “Life is Good” award.)

Coppins Gifts Learn as You GoJacki is a “20-something Navy wife” and she’s “enjoying the adventures of life!”  She’s really on an adventure, too.  Since her hubby is in the military, she’s currently living in Japan— and they’ll be there for the next two years!  We’re looking forward to reading about all of her adventures.  She says she likes scrapbooking, reading, and seeing new sights.  If that doesn’t sound like a great start for a blog, we don’t know what does!

So if you’re looking for a little adventure, check out Jacki’s blog, Learn as You Go.


Growing Up… Townsend Style: A Great Mom Blog!

Here at, we like to post about some of our favorite blogs.  Well, Growing Up… Townsend Style just makes us smile.  Chantel writes about her adventures as a 20-something mom with three kids in Wisconsin.  She says that she lives in a town where “everything closes at 5 or close to it.”  Maybe that’s why she likes Coppins Gifts— we never close!

Chantel’s got an amazingly positive view on everything in her life.  Whether her kids are doing well in school or crying straight through the night— she manages to write about it in a way that’s simply delightful.  She almost makes us want to move to her little Wisconsin town and see what all the fuss is about!  (Almost!)

She posts kid book ideas, writing tips, and generally awesome accounts of her life.  We especially like the Winnie the Pooh quote on her blog header:  “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
