Burn After Reading

www.leichic.comAfter spending hours in the returns line at Best Buy last year, your boyfriend is dropping oh-so-subtle hints about this year’s Christmas gifts. Like: What were you smoking when you decided against the Wii?

Not in the budget? Then get the next best thing – a hot-off-the-press copy of “The Ultimate Guide to Shopping on O‘ahu” by Honolulu Magazine executive editor and shopping-ista Kathryn Drury Wagner.

Get Carded

www.leichic.comYour perfect cousin Marcia’s perfect holiday card arrives in your mailbox just perfectly on December 1. Her perfect family is in perfect outfits, posed perfectly for the photo.

But Marcia’s not completely perfect – you've already received a duplicate of her generic chain store cards.

This year, forget your tired news/brag letter, and say adios to a Shutterfly photo collage with these stationary ideas that’ll leave other greetings looking card bored.

You’ll be so eco-chic for rocking out cards... Read more »
