From the cocktail connoisseur to the Pinterest-crazed recipe tester, we all have that one (or maybe a few) foodie friends. They’re notorious for hosting jaw-dropping dinner parties and knowing exactly where to find the area’s best tex-mex fare. Here are some culinary-inspired gift ideas that are sure to “wow” the grub-lovers in your life.
At Pinhole Press, we love the holiday season. There are twinkling lights illuminating the streets, malls are packed with gift-givers galore and it is fully acceptable to have hot cocoa at any hour. During this jolly time we like to share our favorite holiday gifts to surprise your loved ones with, and you can get them all straight from your computer without even putting down your hot cocoa. Well, you might have to put it down, but only for a few minutes.
Nowadays, what isn’t there to get your children? From little plastic figurines in hatchable shells (I’m lookin’ at you Hatchimals) to interactive apps with endless in-game purchases, there seems to be something for everything. And while there are plenty of fun and enjoyable toys out there, within a few months they seem to become old news to your ever-growing kids.
When our firstborn turned two, rather than accumulate more stuff, we asked guests to bring a book in lieu of gifts. We collected a handful of new and used titles that we then donated to the Ready Readers program in our community. This book-giving birthday tradition has continued and it doesn’t diminish how special birthdays feel; in fact, I’d say it enhances the experience for all involved. Here’s why: books keep giving.
Birthdays are great. I mean, everybody has one, and they’re an ideal opportunity to celebrate the lives of the people we care about most. (While gorging on cake and ice cream, obviously.) But if you’re restricted to a college budget like myself, coming up with a meaningful and cost-effective gift idea can be both a headache and a hassle.
Youth sport coaches volunteer months of their time to help the children of the community become more active, learn to work as a team and improve their knowledge of the sport. Each year, children are eager to participate in their new favorite sport. And often times, some of the best family moments are created throughout these seasons.
It’s safe to say that here at Pinhole Press, we’ve made a few photo books in our day. Learn from our collective 20+ years of photo experience to see how easily and quickly you can make the best photo books to remember your travels.
Homecoming, prom, and graduation day are all officially visible in the rearview mirror. You’ve spent your summer on camping excursions, late-night fast food runs, and on Netflix rewatching “The Office” for the third consecutive time. As the leaves begin to change and new Septembers are visible on the horizon, college preparations are on the minds of many recent high school grads.
With Father’s Day approaching, there are so many ways to celebrate Dad. After all, each Dad is unique, bringing their own piece to the family story. This year, we decided to round-up some of our Pinhole Press staff to find out what they plan to get Dad this Father’s Day.
You grab the kids, stumble into the school carrying various lunches, backpacks and science projects. You rush into the classroom plopping down your child’s things only to see their classmates handing the teacher various thank you gifts and bags. Is it Teacher Appreciation Day already? Now what?
