Ideas For Gifts

We found these red paper berry baskets at the after Christmas clearance sale. As soon as we spotted them we knew they would be perfect for hand-drawn Valentine’s Day gift baskets. We drew on them with white gel pens, filled them with treats and gave them to teachers and neighbors.

I was fortunate to be asked to write a chapter for a book by my hero by Jay Conrad Levinson who was the founder of Guerrilla Marketing. I have long been a fan of his work and when he passed away in 2013 I thought that would be the end of his voice but luckily he left essays behind and his wife Jeannie Levinson took up the cause. 

Jay Conrad and Jeannie Levinson, were the creators of the term Guerrilla Entrepreneur. They described them as men and women who think outside-the-box. In their words: He’s embraced new ways of thinking, new ways of working, new ways of living. He well knows that he’s left behind an age characterized by a worship of profits, a surfeit of working hours, and a neglect of family and self.

I am thrilled that the book is out and my essay is included. Here is the link to grab a copy for yourself:

Tis the season for gift wrapping at Lovely Lula central this can feel so tedious. So in order to make it more fun I say turn it into a gift of it’s own. If you take the time to create a beautiful package if make the wrapping of the gift a much more enjoyable processes.  The examples below include hand painted wrapping paper, dried and hand painted leaves, vintage paper and recycled materials. Get creative. Happy Holidays and happy wrapping!
