Yeah, yeah, I know, dudes don’t “do bags.” But, let’s face it, if you’re going to spend $3 on a gift bag that will get tossed, you may as well buy the Box Bag and save it for yourself when he’s pulled his gift out! 🙂

Gifts for the hard-to-buy for:

We all have them … those people on our lists who are difficult to buy for!  How about a few ideas you could tuck into a box bag for those people.

  • A classic card game might just be the answer for some of those people. Games like Rook are a perfect gift for grandparents who have it all.  Plus, it makes a great way for you to spend some extra time with them while you play the game.
  • How about a keepsake ornament? Maybe something that symbolizes how much the person means to you or celebrates a special memory?
  • And there’s always the gift card … who doesn’t love an Amazon gift card!  Did you know you can design your own card?  I love that!

This last gift idea is my favorite … take some time to write a note to someone sharing with them what he or she means to you and how having him or her in your life has enriched and encouraged you.  Sometimes, those are the very best gifts … the ones that come straight from our hearts!

More about Freeset: Freeset is a fair trade business located in one of the largest, most infamous sex districts in Calcutta, India, where more than 10,000 women stand in line selling their bodies. They are often trafficked from poor families in rural India and then forced into prostitution. Freeset started with just 20 women brave enough to seize the opportunity to leave the sex trade behind, and has now grown to almost 200 women. The women at Freeset are employed in dignity, able to move from being the product, to making products. They receive a fair wage, medical insurance, reading and writing classes, daycare for their children, and retirement. Because of the choice Freeset offers for freedom, it provides the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and exploitation for these women once and for all.
