Birthdays, anniversaries, births are all days we need to remember and ...
Like me, do you feel special when people remember your birthday?
My Mum taught us at a young age not to forget loved one’s birth dates and that it’s a kind-hearted thing to do. Mum never overlooks birthdays of friends, family, in-laws, the kids next door, etc, etc., you name it!!
Of course, being part of Things Vintage, I really enjoy finding gifts for relatives and close friends as well, and this year I came across a list of birthstone colours for each month.
January’s stone is the Garnet which is red in colour and is said to stand for faith, love and courage.
February is the purple Amethyst representing protection against general ill-health and drunkenness!
The colours red and purple are said by home décor designers that they are a constant balancing act between using too little and using too much. And so home accents – a pop of colour – as they say are recommended. Bearing all that in mind, here’s my pick of the red and purple gifts on our website.
Did you know that there are celebratory days in each month, such things as, for example, in January:
11th National Milk Day
14th Clean off your desk day
21st National Hug Day
24th National Compliment Day
25th Have Fun at Work Day
The next blog will include more days to celebrate and remember.
Best Wishes and Happy Birthday to our January browsers from the TV Crew.
