The stores all over David reflect that the Christmas season is here. However, don’t forget that December 8, is Mother’s day in Panama. You may be looking for that perfect gift, either for your mother for Mother’s Day or another loved one for Christmas.Yesterday, I found a unique gift that says, “You are so special, that I bought you something very special.” Now I know, you want to maximize your dollars, so this gift should fit right in. No one wants to get something that everyone else is getting. What fun is that? How about a personalized gift? If it is personalized, then it will be one of a kind.
This idea will allow you to personalize the gift anyway you want. And did I mention it is inexpensive? A personalized gift, that is inexpensive. WOW. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
Ready for the details?
First, go to any store you know that sells nice quality, inexpensive towels. It could be PriceSmart. It could be DoIt Center. Keep your eyes pealed. I went to DoIt Center and found nice large towels, on sale, for $4.99.
Next drive down town David to the Shopping Center store. They have a parking lot in the back and since we are going to spend some money in the Shopping Center, parking will be free. Enter the Shopping Center and go up one level.
Walk toward the front of the store, staying on the right side. Look for the following sign.
This is where you go if you want a gift embroidered with a name, comment or whatever your creative mind can come up with. Here is a towel example that shows some examples.
Now what could be a better gift, than a towel, embroidered with, “Ima Big Reader Loves Chiriquí Chatter”? Just think of the smile that will come from the person receiving this gift. You have my full permission to use this gift idea. Don’t forget to put the accent over the “í “. It may take about a week to get your towel back, so hurry and avoid the rush!
Now that you have your purchases for Christmas (or Mother’s Day) taken care of, head back down the stairs toward your car. But wait! You deserve a reward. Why not treat yourself to an ice cream cone? As you you reach the bottom level of the store, turn to your left. You will find a nice little food counter and I love their ice cream.
A cone is going to cost you 50 cents, but you will enjoy it. This is the only place in David to get this hand made ice cream. I personally like to get rum Raisin. Out of curiosity, I asked the lady if they ever sell their ice cream for parties. She said you can buy a container, which will be equal to one of their serving containers, for around $7+. The exact price will depend on the flavor. I think she said rum raisin would be $7.50. Others were $7.00. In fact you might want to order some ice cream to have after the gifts are opened on Christmas Day. I know everyone is going to want to celebrate receiving their new Chiriquí Chatter towels. 🙂
