Gift exchange has been going on since the beginning of civilization. They have brought an end to many wars. The Trojan War is an excellent example here. The legend states that there were Greek soldiers in the Trojan Horse and they attacked from inside and opened the gates of Troy for the Greek Army. Or, maybe we are sort of misquoting the whole thing. The fact of the matter is that we do not know for sure what happened and neither does history. Nevertheless, whatever it resulted in, the war did end after that.
But, humor aside, it is a very effective strategy when dealing with matters of the heart. If you have a tussle going on, then a small gift can turn the argument in your favor. Even if nothing else happens, it softens the person’s heart towards you. This creates the perfect opportunity of getting your point across. A bit brutal in terms of strategy, but whatever works right!
Or, if you are wooing a potential life partner, gifts have been traditionally the way to go. And call us old-fashioned, but we still hold them in high regard. Start with the small things and maybe who knows one day you will find your Happily Ever After.
So, in the spirit of gift giving we have compiled a short list of gifts that are under $100 and will support your efforts.

People assume tea is generally only good for drinking. Think again! Here are three super easy recipes that you can incorporate into your daily breakfast routine and add some extra health benefits without the extra effort!

“I’m looking to reduce the amount of coffee I drink in one day,
though I can’t deal with the withdrawals”
This is a great goal to have. Coffee, while not necessarily all that bad for you certainly doesn’t have so many health benefits either and can sometimes lead to caffeine withdrawal, jitters, nausea and tummy issues.
We suggested Chai Love You, A black chai blend laced with lavender, rose and natural notes of dark chocolate - A truly decadent experience. After one sip, you’ll be thinking “Coffee who?”
The benefits of this not so guilty indulgence are increased mental focus and energy from the levels of caffeine (minus the crash, jitters etc). This results in a longer sustained energy. Black tea is also known to help increase cardiovascular health while chai spices have been said to be mentally revitalizing and mood stabilizing. Random health benefit: Black tea is great for oral health too as it helps reduce bad breath bacteria which can lead to cavities.Read More
