Valentine’s Day is just one day away…

…it’s time to go shopping!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am such a last minute shopper when it comes to gift giving. To add even more stress to the equation, it’s incredibly difficult to find gifts for Valentine’s Day. On such a romantic holiday, do you only give gifts to your significant other or do you give them to your kids, your parents and even your friends too? I think so.

Do you remember giving and receiving Valentine’s Day crafts when you were a little kid? It was always so exciting to me. Now that I’m older, though, I’m interested in gifts that last longer than a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers. That’s why I’ll be giving glassybaby to my loved ones this year. And there are a number of glassybaby sets that are suitable for anyone who is close to your heart.

Some of my favorite sets for a boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse are ‘red hot love,’ ‘pillow talk,’ ‘endless love’ and ‘love story.’

As for the rest of your loved ones, I enjoy ‘xo,’ ‘inspired by you’ and ‘together.’

No matter which sets you choose to give, I guarantee you’ll be making some people very happy. We can only hope you receive some glassybaby too!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Imagine our delight when two adorable kindergartners from St. Therese Catholic Academy stopped by our Madrona store with a hand-made Valentine!  In fact, the entire neighborhood is decked-out in these made-with-love gifts.  Each time I see one hanging in a store window, I can’t help but smile.

We did some gift giving of our own recently.  Thanks to a generous glassybaby community and an amazing December, we presented some of the largest giving checks in our history.  Northwest Harvest was the recipient of a check in the amount of $14,537!  We were overwhelmed with gratitude when we learned that this money will provide 66,000 meals!  Those meals were made possible through the amazing work of Northwest Harvest and your generosity.  Two gifts from the heart, for sure!

glassybaby men’s night

tuesday, february 12

Valentine’s Day is almost here and we all know what every woman wants, and deserves, from her special someone.  glassybaby is the gift that keeps on giving in every way and will last you a lifetime.  How do I give my boyfriend/husband a hint, you ask?  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you men’s night at glassybaby!

Tuesday, Feb. 12, all three of our stores will be ready to welcome your men, with snacks and drinks, and help them pick out some beautiful hand-blown glass votive holders from 4-7 p.m.  We will have pre-boxed gift sets ready to go, but we can also help your significant others create a personal, unique set by grouping together a few of your favorite words and colors.  Who wouldn’t want to receive a set with ‘cherish,’ ‘dream’ and ‘grateful?’  I know I would.

Ten percent of all sales from men’s night will be donated to the White Light Fund at the University of Washington Medical Center.  Get a gift by giving a gift.  What could be better?  Hope to see you there.
