Over the last three Christmas seasons since opening Plume, my hubby has learned it’s going to be a bit difficult for me to focus during the  holidays.  He kicks it in gear and does the majority of our Christmas shopping.  Yes, he’s a dream-boat and I’m so thankful he’s mine.   I love finding him unexpected gifts and don’t mind spending a little bit more when I find one that is JUST perfect.

Do you have someone special that you like to spend a bit more on for Christmas Gifts?   Your spouse, significant other, parent…or maybe a group gift for a boss?   Here’s some last-minute “splurge” gifts that will look like you planned them all along!  They’re handmade locally and all available at Plume!

 {Ladies, please feel free to forward this on to your MEN!!!}

Project 1818 Framed Prints
