308. Great Gifts of “Warmth” and “Time” at Solisq

 If you’re looking for something unique for the special woman in your life, there’s a brand new vintage inspired jewelry and accessories store in Barrington’s Ice House Mall. It’s called Solisq, and it’s only been open for a few weeks.

You’ll find so many special pieces at Solisq that you’ll be sure to find that great one-of-a-kind gift. “I try to make all of my items in my collection very unique,” says owner Gina Ahn.  “I just try to choose designs that you can’t really find at a mainstream mall.”

We asked Gina what’s one great gift idea for this holiday season and she immediately shared the idea of giving “the gift of warmth” or “the gift of time” with several very creative suggestions, starting with her cashmere scarves.

She says they’re a great way to keep warm and stylish this winter and they’re on special for $34!   “It’s a little pop of color in a luxurious material.”

Solisq carries hats and gloves as well as an array of fashion scarves with varying details featuring a two-sided finish or those that turn into an infinity loop.  “Even though they’re a small item, it’s something you can have with you and always think of the one who gave it to you.  Or if you gift it to yourself, it makes you feel special.”

And as for the gift of time, Gina offered another clever suggestion……

306. Great Gifts: Pick a Pen at TT Patton Fine Stationery

 If you’re like me, you probably haven’t even started your holiday shopping yet.  Hopefully for you, you’re not like me!  But in case you could use a few suggestions for great gifts this year, I’ve been putting together a list of ideas for items you can purchase locally.  The guide is called Great Gifts of Barrington and it’s sponsored, in part, by the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce, a partner in building business success.

If you’d like to find a gift that makes a lasting impression, you don’t have to look any further than TT Patton, the fine stationery and writing store at 123 Station Street in downtown Barrington.
When it comes to the art of fine writing, TT Patton owner, Theresa Patton, is an expert and someone you should meet.  She’s a pro when it comes to technology and she fires off texts and tweets with flying fingers.
But the cool thing about Theresa is that she truly values taking the time to communicate the old fashioned way.  Her store is filled with items that encourage a return to writing meaningful messages, by hand, and on beautiful stationery.
So when I asked Theresa for one gift idea that can be purchased in her store this year, a special Vincent Van Gogh-inspired pen she’s carrying today came to mind……
