There are certain people that are really difficult to buy gifts for, like that really rich uncle and your dad. Or even your own mother-in-law. The gift must be tasteful, classic, and hopefully something that she will use.
We have a tip for you today. The easiest gift you can get her (unless she lives in tropical southern Mexico like mine) is a scarf. “Ay dios, how cliche!”, you’re saying as you close this blog post. Wait. This isn’t just a scarf. This scarf is special. This scarf has a story that you’ll be able to share with your family members around the holiday table. You’ll tell them how it’s handmade in Mexico. You’ll tell them how it’s made using a technique that has been perfected for over 1,000 years – a technique passed down from the Mayans. You’ll tell them that it takes over a week to hand weave (yes, thread by thread) this scarf. You’ll tell them it also created employment for women in rural area of Mexico. Now, you see, it’s not just a scarf. It has ancient history, it creates jobs, and – mas que nada – it is outrageously beautiful, soft, and goes with everything.
It might be not appropriate for your gazillionaire uncle, but we are sure that your mother-in-law will love it!
