Uncle Drosselmeyer, where are you? The curious master of gift-giving presented Clara with her precious Nutcracker in the beloved tale. A satiable joy accompanies the anticipation of a loved one’s face when unwrapping something unexpected. When was the last time that you received a gift that truly spoke to you? I will never forget the kiss-clasped, red velvet purse received on my fourth Christmas. It harboured a small bottle of Blue Waltz perfume, a buffalo nickel and a pearl ring from a bubble-gum machine. This was dear to my heart. Admittedly, and despite our efforts to place importance upon people rather than things, we are ever-seeking cherished possessions. The criteria may be our sentimental love for the person from which it came. Or possibly a found treasure may arouse a personal aesthetic. No matter the reason, remembrances should transcend materialism and offer meaning and insight to the recipient’s whim. Priceless. Compiled within these pages are rarities and “quaints”, peculiar objects with a story to tell (“Five Vintage Watchfaces” bracelet, p.39 and The Charleston Gramophone, p.44), good- humoured gifts (“No Floozies in the Jacuzzi” sign p.83), pragmatic pretties that permeate our days with a charmed existence (jeweled flash drives, p.99), and relished consumables (our bestselling bourbon balls on p.28). Those who matter in your life are worthy of heirloom-caliber gifts. As my mother would say, “One cannot afford to purchase cheap goods”. The personal effects that we covet may endure generations as telling souvenirs that muster fond thoughts of who we are. The finest gifts are those we would hope to keep.
