Day after Thanksgiving Special

Hello Friends!

This holiday season I’m joining up with the many businesses of Monadnock Buy Local to celebrate Plaid Friday! I’m offering a ONE DAY special on massage gift cards.  Give your friends & family a gift you love and a gift they won’t return — MASSAGE! 

When you purchase a one hour massage gift certificate for someone on your holiday list you get a $25.00 credit for your massage in January.  Meaning, a gift for them is a gift for you!  Come in the day after Thanksgiving for my Plaid Friday Special from 10:00am – 2:00pm.

For this very special day I’m also going to be carrying some wonderful pieces by Monadnock Buy Local member, Jayelay Jewelers.  Jayelay creates beautiful hand forged pieces that those on your holiday list will love!

So after you’ve stuffed yourself full of turkey, gravy and pumpkin pie put on your PLAID SHIRT and support your locally owned businesses!  Want to learn more about Monadnock Buy Local?  Visit their site and follow along. On Plaid Friday there will be raffles from participating businesses.


And why plaid you ask? Jen Risley of Monadnock Buy Local explains in the recent Monadnock Shopper article:  

“Where does the plaid come in?  We ask citizens to dress in plaid on November 23rd to make their support for locally-owned businesses and community visible, reinforcing their own commitment while giving others a reminder to think local first.  Wearing plaid, a fabric with unique colors woven together into a larger pattern, represents the many diverse independent businesses and organizations that together form the tapestry of a strong local economy.”

Valentine’s in the Monadnock Region

Looking for ideas for sweet Valentine’s day?  Here are my pics for this year in the Monadnock Region.  How about some of Gemma’s yummy Linzer cookies?  I don’t know about you, but flowers never get old with me! So go get him or her some roses from Anderson the Florist.  Speaking of roses, you could make a weekend out of it and take her to Walpole’s, The Inn at Valley Farm and stay in the Rose Room and top it all off with this fresh water pearl ring from Jayelay Jewelers in Westmoreland!  So, if my valentine is reading this, any of the above will score you brownie points with me šŸ™‚ HAPPY V-DAY TO YOU ALL!


Therapeutic Holiday Gifts

If you’re looking for a few gift ideas this season that are nourishing or therapeutic to the body try one of these!

Pomegranate – Botanics Body Soap with Pomegranate Bits by Threla1.  I’m a big fan of the Threla products, including this Pomegranate soap! You have to try the Golden Dew Facial Lotion, too!  Be good to someone on your list with a gift of Threla. 

2.  Ease away sore muscles with Badger’s Cooling Blend.  I’m a fan of cooling Balm’s, espcially by local badgers!

3.  One of my favorite teas, Egyptian Licorice!  Really all the Yogi Teas are wonderful.  You can get these from their website and if you’re from my neck of the woods, right at Blueberry Fields.

4.  Lastly, this simple foam roller from Gaiam not only provides a good work out but can help someone on your list work out their own tight muscles for an at home massage.
