Gift Guide Part 1: Tweens

Today we are kicking off a week of gift guides. As we have mentioned before, only a small part of what we sell is on our website. Grove Gal E has had an insanely busy day job for the past
two years and the web updates are usually done by both us while most of you are in dreamland. Our goal for 2011 is a webstore that offers you everything! So if you see something in this week that you want, PLEASE just email us. We do our best work on special orders and requests. Also if you see something and you want us to drop the hint, just email us the item and who needs a little hint in the gift giving and we will take care of the rest.

Everyone has a certain someone on the list that always leaves you scratching your head for the perfect gift. For me it is my neices who range in age from 7-11. They aren't quite tweens, but they most certainly little girls. I also have a NO toy policy. I never give toys to other people's children, because I figure their house looks like mine, way too many toys, most of which are rarely used.

We just started carrying these headbands and I adore them. We can customize them to your team, sport or school colors and can substitute a design for a name or 3 letter monogram. The headbands are $15 each. My plan is to add some fun girlie lip gloss, a cello bag and a preppy grosgrain bow and viola, gift complete!
Door hangers. This may sound weird, but I love the idea. The possibilities are endless...start with a name or 3 letter monogram and add a phrase:
Emily is studying
No boys allowed
Glee Fans Only
Big Sister Only
These are not on our site but send us an email with the colors you want or an animal print and we will get to work. The door hangers are $18 and I think they make a great gift on their own
or pair them up with a fun pair of fleece pj pants, some cool pens or pencils.

Water Water! The Grove house can never have too many water bottles! It seems Mini K has a different activity after school everyday and part of her "chores" each morning is to fill her water bottle that lives in her backpack! The new Lilly P water bottles are great to give as gifts, and a lot of our clients keep some extra on hand to use as last minute gifts. They come in 2 sizes: small and large. The small retail for $16.00 and the large for $19. Give them alone or pair them with a fun beach towel or pair of yoga pants for the sporty girls on your list!
A little bling. The holidays always need a little bling. Our magnolia silk cord bracelets are a big statement for a tiny price! At only $18, the silver interlocking magnolias come on a white or pink cord bracelet. We have sold these to little girls, tweens and moms and everyone loves them!

We also have matching necklace that is on a silver chain for $24. Full disclosure these are not sterling silver they are silverplate, but they don't tarnish and they are stunning!

Happy Shopping!
