I still remember early in my relationship with my man, when I told him that I wasn't one of those women that wanted my man to waste money buying flowers for me. They are expensive and just die within a few days or a week.
Ladies, don't tell your men this. This is a mistake. If you tell them this, then they will never buy you flowers again. Men listen to us. So here's what you tell them instead:
I love flowers, but I don't like the ones that die so quickly because they seem like a waste of money. Instead, I love potted plants or potted flowers. They last longer, and I can eventually plant them if I wish to.
Last week, we had two Limoges gift bags to giveaway, each filled with a mix of jewelry- including a genuine 1/2 carat diamond tennis bracelet. Since these swag bags are valued at $200 each, we expected quite a few entries. Thank you to everyone who commented on our blog post and over on our Facebook page and told us why they wanted to win.
Congratulations to Savings.com user lindilala and PinkySade who said, "I would love to win this for my mom!". I've sent you
each an email with instructions on how to claim your prize. If
some reason it doesn't reach you, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of the
day on Tuesday, May 8th or another winner will be chosen.
Mother's Day is only a week away, so if you haven't spent time thinking of what to buy Mom, we'll save you the headache of flipping through websites and catalogs (kidding... do people still get catalogs in the mail?)
Mother's Day is on May 8th--just around the corner. Contrary to what the flower, chocolate and greeting card industries would have you believe, you don't have to spend a ton of money to show your appreciation for your mother. You only have to spend...love.
A fresh, colorful bouquet is always a welcome gift. Whether to or from colleagues, parents or significant others, a bouquet can always brighten a room and add warmth to holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. Choosing the right flowers and prices, however, can feel daunting because there are so many choices.
Use these pointers to get a bouquet at a price within your budget.
Sometimes it's easier to buy a stack of gift cards and pass them out to family and friends than go to the mall and fight the crowds. It really depends on your personality and how much patience you have.
The fact that gift cards are almost anywhere offers the immediate convenience to any shopper who dreads shopping. You can find them at your local grocery store, drug store, favorite pizzeria and more (you name it, they probably have some).
Just like buying holiday gifts, the costs can add up very quickly. If you're on a budget, buying gift cards might not sound like the perfect solution for you ... but wait ... can you buy a gift card at a lesser price? The answer is yes. There are sites that are dedicated to helping you sell, buy and exchange unwanted gift cards for less than what it's worth. BINGO! (ding-ding-ding-ding-ding).
