Another Awesome Local Gift Idea
Are you reading the awesomely awesome blog Yes and Yes? Probably. but if you aren't, get thee to the site and join in on all the rad adventures that my girl Sarah has . . . she's an inspiration. Her tagline is "Because yes is more fun than no," and it's a perspective that has won her admiration, some seriously incredible adventures, and friendship worldwide. Amazing where a "yes" attitude can take you.
Each year she puts together a calendar, called A Year In Yes. (Order the calendar here.) I have 2011's calendar, and I loved it, but she really topped herself this year. Each month can be repurposed when it's done—check out the fun handmade fortune teller (remember those?) for April.
There are postcards and gift wrap—each month is a different little surprise! The calendar is filled with inspirational-not-sappy quotations and offbeat holidays, too.
It's $25 (and that includes shipping)—so it's the perfect price point for the adventurer or wannabe adventurer in your life. And here's the thing--yes, placing an order on the internet feels like instant gratification, but today is actually the last day to order in time for Christmas. Send it right along to your best buddy, teacher, colleague, piano teacher, or pen pal.
Just say yes.
