If Lifeway is gonna let you have a copy of Looking For Lovely for only FIVE AMERICAN DOLLARS, I’m gonna help you build out a little gift for a few different women in your life.
Today- let’s talk about those dears that are between seventeen(ish) and twenty-three(ish)! In addition to a copy of Looking For Lovely, here are a few gift ideas I loooooove that I think college-aged gals will love too. So pick a few or pick ’em all, but they will be great co-gifts with the book!
East Pole Coffee :: delicious coffee, cool guys who make it, all the fancy terms that coffee people care about like POUR OVER and all that business I don’t know, trendy and tasty.
Lovely jar :: so sweet and beautifully handmade.
Darling Magazine Subscription :: it’s just my favorite, so many amazing features and photographs.
OPI Nail Polish in You Don’t Know Jacques :: the perfect shade for December to March.
Cuff Ring :: I am DYING over this cuff ring from fashionABLE. I feel like every girl I see studying at a coffee shop has one like it. (So obviously I want one too.)
Graphique Dipped Foil Hard Cover Journal :: when it comes to journals, spiral is a must to me. This one is adorable.
Looking For Lovely Bible Study :: the yellow cover is for younger women, so I’d suggest that one here.
So there you go! I’m gonna help you out with the single ladies and the mamas in your family this week too, so stick around! Also, if you have any gift recommendations to go along with Looking For Lovely, leave it down in the comments for us. That’ll be fun to see what y’all share too.
It’s Looking For Lovely‘s first Christmas! Baby’s first Christmas! I should definitely get an ornament. BRB… ordering a glittery one from Etsy. 🙂
But seriously- it gets me so so excited to think that a lot of friends will find Looking For Lovely inside the wrapping paper of their Christmas gifts this year! (Which. By the way. You know Lifeway has Looking For Lovely for ONLY FIVE AMERICAN DOLLARS? Yeah, online and in stores. That’s ridiculously cheap and I am thrilled about it.)
Books as Christmas gifts are great. BUT….
Autographed books as Christmas gifts are AWESOME. Unfortunately, unless you live on my street in Nashville, I can’t personalize each book. BUT. I can mail you a signed bookplate that sticks inside the book! So if you are gifting Looking For Lovely, I’d love to autograph it! And it won’t cost you anything except a few stamps!
. . . . .
Here’s what you have to do to get one:
2. Mail a self-addressed stamped envelope to:
c/o Annie F. Downs
PO Box 121826
Nashville, TN 37212
Pretty much, address an envelope to yourself, put a stamp on it, and then fold it into another envelope, address and stamp that outer envelope, and mail it to me.
3. Wait patiently a few days… hang a few ornaments… and then the sticker will come in the mail, personalized by me! Stick it in the copy of Looking For Lovely you are gifting, wrap it, and you shall be able to give your friend/child/cousin/person an autographed copy!!! (I also have a handful of those cool stickers in the picture above- we’ll toss one of those in until we run out. SO HURRY if you want one!)
. . . . .
A few things:
I need to receive your envelope BEFORE DECEMBER 20th to guarantee it gets to you by Christmas.
I will let you know by email when I put the bookplate back in the mail to you! [I’ll have your email address after you fill out this form and I will be able to get in touch with you.]
. . . . .
I decided to throw a Christmas party. And I want you to coooooome!
(And yes. I know today is the day before Thanksgiving. But sue me I am ready to talk Christmas.)
Here’s the thing. I LOVE DECEMBER. A bunch of us do. And the dream of my holiday would be to throw a Christmas party that all of y’all can attend. Sadly, my home would not even come close to holding us all (but I’d sure try).
So instead? I’m throwing a podcast party. Every Thursday in December, we’ve got a podcast episode coming your way, all Christmas themed, some fun surprises, and jingly background music from our pal Dave Barnes.
Obviously, in order to throw a party, you gotta decorate. So my friend Landyn Hutchinson, better known as Living With Landyn, popped into the studio and helped me sort out some of my decoration issues. Mainly, I tend the decorate every corner of my living room but ignore the rest of the place. BUT NO LONGER THANKS TO LANDYN!
So whether you are traveling today or just spending a few minutes alone on the treadmill before family life really kicks up, I hope you’ll let Landyn and I hang out with you and talk Christmas!!
(If you aren’t already subscribed to the podcast, today would be the day to do that so you don’t miss anymore of the Christmas party!)
