Best gifts of 2020 – worth repeating

I think we can all agree that the Holidays of 2020 were not normal. For so many they meant being alone or separated from others that normally celebrate with us. Many had a more permanent loss of a loved one. What most of us had were gifts. Maybe they were gifts that we bought for others. Some were bought for loved ones, some were bought for strangers in need, some were bought for ourselves. What were the best gifts?

Last minute solutions for those hard-to-shop-for gift ideas

OK, so some of us are last minute shoppers for those hard-to-shop-for people. This year it’s even more challenging as we must be socially distant. Here is my solution: subscription boxes!
