"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year" Charles Dickens

That special time of year is a few weeks away and the holiday frenzy is in the air.  Raffinee can help in making gift giving a pleasurable experience.  But before we talk about all our great gift ideas, we should remember that Christmas is also about giving back.

-volunteering in your local community

-sponsoring a family in need

-serving food at the local mission

-sitting with an elderly person

-donating through your church

-giving a warm smile

Giving back strengthens the spirit at this time of year.  Giving back all year long, strengthens our humanity.

Making someone happy with a special gift does warm the heart.  Raffinee has some great ideas, especially with our selection of head-turning accessories.  Jewelry, scarves, belts and handbags can make a simple outfit look absolutely fabulous.  Winter is the best time to add some drama to an outfit.  So wouldn't it be nice to receive a stylish accessory like a cool belt or colourful scarf to dress up even plain jeans and a sweater.

Working with accessories can really be a creative process.  Since so many of us love black, what better way to add some colour then with a bold necklace or a unique handbag.  Even the most casual of outfits will stand out with the necklaces showcased below.  Raffinee carries a selection of handmade jewelry by O'LEVATELIER (designed by Stephanie O'Neil) and PAGE ONE DESIGNS (designed by Janis Page).

It really is "...beginning to look a lot like Christmas" so come in and have some fun!
