If you are looking for a great gift, let me suggest that you add either Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea, or Evening Wine along with your favorite coffee, tea, or wine.
Just last week I was in the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, and I saw a woman with Afternoon Tea on the table beside her plate in the museum café, where she and a friend were having lunch. I went over to her table and asked her where she had found the book. She replied, “A friend gave it to me for my birthday. I just love it! But, I am not sure where one can buy the book…”
I could see that she enjoyed the book, because she had it stuffed full of art pictures, recipes, notes, and other memorabilia.
I then let her in on the secret that I knew where to find the book, because I was the author! She was so excited, and asked if I would be willing to sign her book…
Recently, another woman I met said that she loved reading the books and looking at the drawings. Then, she added, “And, I just love to hold them in my hands… They are just the right size to hold… They make me feel good just holding them!”
I tell these two stories, because they make the point that recipients will cherish Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea, and Evening Wine long after other gifts are forgotten!
