Hello-hello, all. The Consort striding mikeside to dazzle and baffle you while The (lovely and talented) Princess motivates the troops in the shipping department. Let me paint a mental picture for you: George C. Scott as Patton speaking in front of a gigantic flag. Yeah, it’s like that except she is speaking in front of a gigantic pink bow. Quite frankly I’m a bit choked up. But I will compose myself and move on.
Let’s move forward into some of The Consort’s favorite things for the holidays. The list is short because I have everything I need in The Princess and our fun, healthy families. But these are some of the things that I want…
Our good friend Kiel James Patrick tipped us off to this beauty. This Upland Ventile Hunting Jacket is beyond great. It has classic styling, fantastic waterproofing and, best of all, it’s on sale now. Run, do not walk, to Orvis and get one for everybody on your shopping list. Make sure to add one for The Consort and I will thank you every single time I wear this beauty. Full disclosure: The extent of my hunting is searching for my car keys. But if I were wearing this jacket I would look good while also looking befuddled. I can pull that off, too.
While we’re tangentially on the subject of Kiel James Patrick I have to add this beautiful braided Obeddagget Docks bracelet to my wish list. I already own several of these handmade classics in different color combinations. The colors are vibrant but age beautifully after being exposed to the sun and water. We’re proud to carry them at The Preppy Princess and love hearing comments from satisfied customers after they’ve worn their KJP bracelets, headbands or ear knots.
I’ve always been a fan of a nice grosgrain watchband. I’ve been known to spend as much as $25 for a watch so I want a nice band to complete the look. Our good friends at A. Tierney have a great selection of bands in brilliant colors. The price is fantastic and I think you would agree that a few would make nice stocking stuffers for The Consort. This is no time to be shy about buying me gifts.
No one has ever accused me of being modest and retreating. That’s why my own custom bobblehead has a certain attraction. You can get one of these beauties for yourself, your spouse, your kids, your coach, well, you get the idea. There are loads of different styles and customization options. Doesn’t everyone need their own Mini-me? You’ll thank me later.
Nothing says “Holiday” like inedible fruitcake. Now you can give the classic gift with no fear that anyone is actually going to eat the fruitcake. This inflatable mock-delicacy from those zany kids at Archie McPhee is a work of genius. Buy a bunch for all your friends! Start a game of “Toss The Fruitcake” during your family gatherings! It’s fun for all ages and Mom likes it too because there are no messy spills!
Enough playing on the computer. By the sounds of the whip cracking it seems The Princess is bringing her motivation session to a close. It’s time to run but she’ll be back with more next time. Remember to take care of your waitperson today because they’re working hard for you. I’ll leave you with a musical number that is especially poignant today – 30 years pass so quickly. Good night, everybody!
