The Children Were Nestled All Snug In Their Beds...

Better get your sugar-plums ready! Time is precious and short! Christmas slipped up on us this year and you may be just like us, trying to finish up last minute shopping so you can really celebrate those cherished Christmas moments with your family, dear friends, and work pals. We can help you complete that shopping chore, maybe even make it fun! Well… maybe you just want to finish up, so we can help! If you see something on these pages or hear about it from a friend, just call 318-768-2460 and we will be glad to take your order over the phone, charge it, and wrap it up ready for you to pick up!

Engraved and monogrammed gifts are a very nice personal gift that will be treasured for a lifetime. Choices, Choices, Choices! Monogrammed shell, silver, porcelain stone, copper, and beautiful chocolate copper pendants, rings, and bracelets are top choices on wish lists! The deadline has come and gone for ordering monogrammed jewelry for Christmas Eve delivery, but Da! Da! Da! Dah! We can save the day with a special gift-card letting her know that it has been ordered and will be arriving soon! Engraving is FREE and we do have a great assortment of beads and necklaces that we can giftwrap, so you won’t be empty handed come Christmas morning!

Snazzy METALLIC totes and insulted lunch bags are the rage! Also personalized zebra and giraffe can-wraps are in! I love mine-it velcros, so it opens to store flat and it has my big Curlz “M” on it so I know it’s my diet coke! If we don’t have your initial, call by Fri.and we can place your order to be delivered next Mon. or Tues.! We have gorgeous monogrammable (is that a word?)teal and lime paisley totes, chic chocolate brown, black, and fuchsia fold-up totes, small purses, and bright light weight totes. Monogrammed guest towels or dish towels make a very nice personalized gift also! We’ve had a run on monogrammed APRONS, they look quite charming with a Curlz name or monogram! Our MONOGRAM LADY is FABULOUS and a true miracle worker! She can dress up our most simple items into a very special gift! One color monogramming: single initial, three initial monogram, or name is just $5! Make it very special, on a budget! Deadline for ordering monogrammed items is Saturday December 19th.

Stocking stuffers for the kids: holiday cupcake bath fizzies; kitty, butterfly, and cheer notepads and pens; cupcake lip gloss; ice cream cone and pen lipgloss combination; colorful little bracelets; dotty purse and ice cream cone manicure sets; and lipstick pens! Lots of baby and toddler gifts too: cuddly frogs, dogs, cats, bears and lambs that sing Jesus Loves Me and say bedtime prayer Now I lay me down to sleep, little bitty lovies, great big lovies, and animal nap pillows (monogram it!); tub toys to Santa teasets!

“Little Happies” for more adult kids: zebra, damask, & paisley initial notepads, initial candles, inspirational notepads and note cards, humorous Dolly Mama and jeweled initial purse notepads, new small delicate picture frames, bright photo wallets, and purse tape measures in zingy metallic cases!

For the guys we carry BUCK knives: Eddie says they are sharp right out of the box! Church knives are perfect stocking stuffers! For his desk:glass block paper weight that holds his favorite photo of you, the kids, or his dog! Or an initial etched glass block picture frame. We still have LSU and Fleur de Lis grilling tools. LTU fans will love our tough Bulldog statue, bookends, and doorstop. If he is a gourmet:we’ll fix him a basket with cheese and lemon straws, Salsa, and dip mixes!

Need a little something for the party table at one of your many Christmas celebrations? We can fill your platter with delicious cheese or lemon shortbread straws! YUMM! Or just pour Annie Mae's Salsa in a festive dip bowl and serve with chips! YUMMY! With just a little sour cream and mayonnaise, mix up our zesty dip mixes or slice red and green apples to surround one of our sweet dip mixes: caramel, just plain vanilla, or key lime pie!
