Autumn is my favorite time of year, I just love it! I love to bake and burn pumpkin spice candles and have the doors open during the day and the heat on at night; I just adore fall and everything about it.
It is during this time of year that I am most thankful for my family and friends. Maybe because of the impending Holiday season and the hustle and bustle that it brings or maybe because fall tends to put a smile on my face and it is easy to see what I am so blessed with. Whatever the reason, it is during this time of year that I find myself picking up small gifts of appreciation for my friends and my family.
The Preppy Travel Mug with brown floral insert is a great little "fall happy" for your best friend, mom, daughter, teacher, the list goes on and on. And is a great way to say "thank you". Add some spiced tea* tied up with pretty ribbon and a themed card with directions for a gift that they are sure to love. I've included the spiced tea recipe, a card to print off with serving instructions and for ONE WEEK ONLY, the Preppy Travel Mugs are on SALE!
*I had a friend in high school whose mom always had this spiced tea on hand in the fall months. When we'd come in from tennis practice with a chill on our cheeks she'd heat up some water and serve us this warm goodness. It is so easy to make, stores well, and makes a great gift.
