It’s that time of year again when everything about fatherhood is celebrated by all those who benefit from. Sure, you could get Dear Old Dad another tie, but that’s so cliché. Let’s face it, Pops can sometimes be hard to shop for. You want to get something special that shows how much you care but you also want it to be something unique and nothing he already has.
For better or for worse, springtime has arrived. The chill is turning to warm, the showers have become all too frequent, and everything has begun to bloom. Under normal circumstances this is one of the best times of the year. With all that has been going on around the world in the year 2020, however, things may not feel as rosy as they have in the past. With the pandemic in full swing a lot of us are sheltering at home and that means work for a lot of us has been put on hold. No one feels the pinch more than independent workers, a category which craftsman and artists fall into. While people all over are turning to online shopping to help cure the boredom of quarantine and social distancing, consider picking up some seasonal cheer by seeking out some unique handmade spring gifts.
Let’s face it, so far the year 2020 has been a doozy. The whole of humanity has been put on edge by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19, the resulting respiratory disease caused by the virus in humans. It seems that everywhere you turn there are just as many opinions on the virus and what to do about it as there are human beings on the Earth. As scientists learn more about the virus and how it spreads it has become apparent that, in the absence of a vaccine or treatment for those suffering from COVID-19, the practice of quarantine and social distance are the most effective means of slowing down the spread of the disease enough for our health systems to cope with the sudden influx of patients.
It seems like we just finished up the holiday season and all that associated revelry was just yesterday. Now, all of a sudden, it’s nearly Saint Patrick’s Day! At least this is a fun one. With that grand tradition of pinching anyone not wearing green you may want to make sure you have something appropriate and stylish on. (Or maybe you like the pinching, who are we to judge?) There’s nothing easier or more comfortable to tackle the problem with than a trusty old t-shirt. Here are a few suggestions to help you show off your St. Paddy’s Day pride!
It’s been a whirlwind start to 2020 and January is already over. That means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and, if you’re like me, you have just now realized how quickly it’s coming up. We all should be doing things throughout the year to show our loved ones how much we care, but this is the day we’ve chosen to single out over the others. There are more than likely many of you, like me, who live on a tight enough budget which means going all out with grand gestures is just not an option. If you’re also a procrastinator (cough, cough) then you’ll want to find something you can get quickly without spending an arm and a leg on rapid shipping. This doesn’t mean you can’t put together something sweet and meaningful to make your significant other’s Valentine’s Day a special one.
