Gettin ready for some football...

Well, remember these cups that I was raving about (actually drinking out of one right now).

Well......we have gotten in the perfect cups for game day!!  Here we are in all our glory:

LOVE these new cups!!!

Why do I love them so much?  Well, let me tell you!  They are BIG!  24 ounces BIG.  I like to drink lots and lots of iced tea and a small cup just won't do.  Second, they have a lid!  When I'm walking around or driving in my car I hate it when my drink sloshes around and spills.  Third, they are DOUBLE insulated.  Why would I care about that????  Well, cause it keeps my drink icy cold but no condesation on the outside.  And because I recently watched a news cast about how awful all the chemicals are that (they) are putting into our bodies, this cup is BPA free. And lastly, but certainly not least .... they are SUPER CUTE!

Seriously, who wouldn't love one of these?

If you still have to get a teachers gift or graduation gift these are perfect! 

Really, you just need to come in and get one for yourself!  :)

Have you seen our fruit baskets?

A company ordered these as a way to thank their top customers.  They were so pleased with the way they turned out!  The VP of the company told me that he wanted to just get a box of fruit to give them but his wife explained to him that it's all about presentation.  We couldn't agree more!

Due to Alabama tornados this is the first time we've been online since last Wed.

As with most everything (and everyone) else Savvy Gifts (and our homes) have been without power since last Wednesday.  We have now gotten power back at our homes but not the store.  We will continue to be closed until the power is restored! :(  We are VERY lucky that our homes and our business have minimal damage.  Our hope is that all of you are recovering and that things will begin to move slowly forward soon!  Let us know if that there is anything that we can do to help you!

Slap watches are here!!!

For those of you that are old enough (really wasn't that long ago) you should remember the slap bracelets that we used to wear!  Remember how we had to see how many we could get up ours arms and of course you could always do your own thing by slapping them on your ankles?!?!  Seriously, we were so cool! :) 

Well....they are back.....but in watch form.  What could be better?  The nostalgia of a slap bracelet and actual functionality of a watch! 

These are the new "must have" of the summer!  Super cute bright colors and two different sizes. 

And for your tweens/teens - imagine, they've never experienced the slap phenomenon!  The travesty!!   Bring them in today and let them pick out their favorite one (they'll LOVE you for it).

"I'd have a social life...if I wasn't busy friending on Facebook"

We're ready to give this set away!  Follow our blog and leave a comment to tell us which one is your favorite quote or how you would use these perfect party cups and you will be entered to win!  We will randomly choose a winner on Tuesday April 5th at 5:00 p.m.  If you are local you can pick them up at Savvy Gifts, otherwise we will ship them out on Wednesday morning!

Huge (literally) GIVEAWAY!!!

We just got in our order of new picture frames from Little River.  There are so many cute designs and the styles are so varied that there is one to fit every personality!  

 Here they all are! :)  Check out all this variety!  I definitely have my favorites 
(okay I LOVE them all)! 

 Notice that some styles have grogain bows on them.  The great thing about this company is that they knew this style wouldn't be for everyone, so they made these bows magnetic.  If you don't want it on there - just take it off.  The magnetic on the frame is built in the frame so you can't see it at all...I love that about these frames.  Also, if you want to change the frame to a vertical frame there is a magnetic on the "top" for your bow.  So inventive! :)

 Not only is this frame colorful and unique, it has texture.  It kind of reminds me of scrap booking.  You definitely need to come it to see, touch and feel this one.   

The "picture" portion of this frame is 6" x 4" but it is also wall art!  The neutral colors and simple, clean design will match any decor.  

Since these are new products we thought we'd introduce them with a give-a-way.  Who doesn't love the chance at winning something that they actually want!

Now through April 2nd buy any Little River picture frame and you will be entered to win the large "Memories" wall art picture frame
 (a $70 value)!  

That gives you 2 weeks to get into Savvy Gifts, check out these new frames and have the chance to win!

Hottest trends this season

One of the biggest color trends that we saw at Market this past week was black and white.  Always a classic but we love to add a special touch and make it unique! :)  Here are a couple of products we have in the store right now.

 Stainless steel water bottles.  You can get these blank with just the black design or you can personalize it with one or three initials!  We love personalizing for that perfect touch to any product!

 Another great gift idea - especially for Mother's Day and end of the year teacher's gifts.  These super cute flower pots are perfect personalized!

 Love, love, love these!!!

 Zebra print has been hot for a while and shows no signs of slowing down in popularity.  These are acrylic trays and glasses perfect for your outdoor patio!  These are shown with a hot pink monogram but could also be done with red or you could put your entire last name.

 We have these insulated coolers in several more prints (including zebra).  We have personalized this one with one large initials but the choice is yours! :)

Did you know that we have personalized car tags?  How about this zebra princess tag for the front of your car?  

And we have more products coming in all the time!  Have you seen other black and white products that you love?  Tell us - we'd love to hear it!!

We now have a blog! :)

So apparently everyone in the free world (especially businesses) has a blog except for us, soooo I am going to do my best to keep up a blog so you can know whats going on in the life of our little world! :) First thing I must do is some research. I am off to read some other blogs and see what this whole "blogging" thing is all about! Seems easy enough although I have to think time consuming as well. Will Savvy Gifts information be interesting enough? And how much do you really need to know anyway??? Well, at least it will be a place where I can let you in on all the new products and events we're having and maybe you could be our sounding board for what you like and don't like! Blogging world here we come!!!!

About Me

My photo
Savvy Gifts is Madison’s premier gift boutique. We are a mom (Glenda) and daughter (Lisa) team that started making gift baskets for corporate clients. You know, gourmet goodies as a way to say thank you. Business was great and we quickly opened up our storefront. We didn't want to limit ourselves to just gift baskets so we begin filling our space with fun, whimsical, unique gifts! Our niche seems to be great gifts for women - your girlfriends, teachers, mothers, daughters, etc. You get the idea! We often shop around to see what other "big box" stores are carrying and work diligently to avoid carrying the same products. That being said, overlap does occur so what makes us better? We pride ourselves on our customer service. Presentation is on the top of our list. All of our products can be organized and designed into a gift basket (at no extra charge) and any gift can be gift wrapped, complete with bag, tissue and a bow (no charge there either). We just want to make sure that you get the perfect gift and it is ready to give as soon as you leave our store. Our customers tell us time and time again how much they appreciate that.
