Early fall, or what passes for it in the south, is here. With it comes kids going back to school, college starting up, football and tailgating, and thinking about cooler days and nights.
It’s a good time to plan a shopping trip to Gifts and Paper on Plaza. Robyn Goslen and her team have been to the market and brought back new clothes for your fall wardrobe, new items for decorating your home, lots of ideas for college and kids headed to school, and special items for gracious, southern living.
What’s something that most college kids drag home with them at every visit? Laundry – and lots of it! Give those students something like a stylish laundry bag. Check out the very large, purse-like bags that Gifts and Paper on Plaza has on hand. With a keyhole handle, these bags are spacious and sturdy enough to handle those trips from dorm to home.
Early classes or early workdays equate to coffee on the go. Corkcicles has partnered with Rifle Paper to create new designs to tote your coffee, water, or tea in style. Check out the new patterns available; but not to worry, the solid colors are still around as well.
Rifle Paper also has new calendars to keep track of your schedule as well as add a decorative punch to a dorm or office. Their perpetual celebration calendar provides reminders so that you won’t miss a family or friend’s event. Gifts and Paper on Plaza has a wide range of planners and calendars in a variety of sizes for wall-hanging or desktop, many with motivational/inspirational sayings – something to fit everyone’s needs.
For kids returning to school, Gifts and Paper on Plaza has a variety of activities (games, puzzles, books, and more) to stimulate learning, imagination, and family time. Card games that many grew up with, Old Maid or Go Fish, have a newer look. “Story starter” or “And then” books give kids a chance to step into the picture and use their creativity to develop how the story unfolds. “Like many of our children’s selections, it’s stimulation without electronics,” explained Robyn. Boogie Board allows creativity and may remind you of the Etch ’n Sketch you used as a child. Play ‘n Trace is a similar concept for toddler-age children.
Gifts and Paper on Plaza has a wide selection of puzzles. Perfect for a family evening with a cup of hot chocolate and an opportunity to learn about the United States. Manufactured in the US, there are puzzles that reveal state flags, American road trips, foods common all over the country, the Appalachian Trail, and more.
Spruce up your living space with new throw pillows, lovely neutral toned frames, table candles with their own matches, new Anne Neilson items, and coffee table books.
