100 Christmas Gift Ideas

December 7, 2011

I know what I’m getting for Christmasand no, I didn’t peek—an autographed copy of More Lives than One, The Remarkable Wilde Family through the Generations, ‘by award-winning Irish Poet Gerry Hanberry. The book doesn’t have anything to do with gardening or country lifestyle, but winning is fun and I just had to share.

The book is a contest prize from a challenge held on blog site Wise Words by Mona Wise who signs her emails “Writer, Mother, Wife, Dishbitch.” Her lighthearted words and photography, along with yummy, garden-fresh recipes by husband Chef Ron Wise, come from Ireland where she lives with her family and a puppy name Pearl.

Mona seems to be somewhat of a superwoman. In addition to blogging, this busy gal is writing a book, attending college and raising four children. How does she do it? Lucky Mona, her husband is a chef! However, I understand Mona is a good cook herself.

If you’re wearing the superwoman (or man) apron like Mona and need a little help with gift ideas for friends and family gardeners, check out last year’s post, 100 Gift Ideas for Gardeners.  The recipients of your gifts may not know until Christmas what they are getting but they’re sure to feel like a winner!
