Extra Special Gifts for an Extraordinary Year
Let’s face it…it’s been a weird year. And I’m guessing most of us would like to see 2020 in our rearview mirror, sooner rather than later. Who would have thought when the ball dropped in Times Square as we toasted with champagne to a HAPPY New Year, that we’d be in the midst of a worldwide pandemic within a few short months? I mean, seriously? Had you ever used the word “pandemic” in a sentence before March?
The reality of the lives lost, and the extent of the illness even to those who have survived is excruciating. The toll it’s taken on healthcare workers, law enforcement individuals, and others on the front line is immense. I don’t in anyway want to make light of those situations.
But what I want to talk about today are the secondary effects. All the hundreds of thousands of happy occasions that in other circumstances would have taken place, but instead had to be cancelled or postponed indefinitely. In the grand scheme of things, these are small prices to pay to keep us all healthy, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not disappointing or that you should feel guilty for feeling disappointed.
I wondered what, if anything, Golden Hill Studio could do to help. Upon thinking about it, I realized that many of these occasions call for a special gift to mark the occasion. Here at Golden Hill, we specialize in special gifts! Our glassware and decorative pillows, as well as our other home décor items make the perfect gift for that once-in-a-lifetime occasion. And most of them are made here in the U.S. Perhaps that couple you know that’s getting married would enjoy some hand-painted glass bowls, or your best friend is celebrating a milestone birthday…send her some wine glasses and make a date to toast her via Zoom. And if you’re not sure what to get those special people in your life, you can always suggest they create a gift registry with Golden Hill Studio.
And to help you find something extra special, we are offering 20% off all orders of $100 or more if ordered by September 30th, 2020. Let us know the address of the gift recipient and we can ship it directly to them! Just head to our website and use code EXTRA at checkout. Happy Shopping!
