Christmas is coming!

Holiday shopping season is upon us.

Let me tell you a story. It's a heart-warming Christmas story.

Imagine, you are exchanging gifts with your loved one. They give you a nice sweater, or a gift card to that restaurant you like. You are super happy, because who doesn't like a nice sweater?

Then they're looking at you with that look. You know the look. The look that says, "You only went shopping last week, huh? You didn't think about this until just yesterday."

But much to their surprise, you pull out a good-sized package. It could even be a very large package, perfectly wrapped (because you paid your teenage daughter who's really good at wrapping to wrap it), or it could even just be a big cardboard box with no wrapping. Strangely shaped and they're thinking, "What, did he get me a giant frying pan?" or "I guess it's been cold lately, a duvet will at least keep me warm."

But when they open it up, instead of something boring like a frying pan, they find original artwork. On canvas. Of their best friend (or furbie). And it's painted in their favorite colors. And there's not another one like it in the ENTIRE WORLD.

And you'll get a smile like this:

Or this:

And they'll love you forever for being so thoughtful and creative and secretive and for supporting independent artists.
