South Park Magazine

Season of Giving

HoneeBee Gifts started with a love of giving gifts. You can imagine how it feels when you receive the perfect gift, and you want to give that feeling to your friends and loved ones. I’m here to help.

By day, I do PR for the Greater Charlotte American Heart Association. I’ve been blogging about gifts for two years. Nobody pays me to recommend their products – I just like getting out and finding the best ideas. I draw inspiration from magazines, boutiques and everything in between. I can’t wait to share creative gift concepts to celebrate both the everyday and life-changing moments in your lives. And there’s no better time to start blogging for SouthPark Magazine than the kick-off of the holiday shopping season.

There’s nothing like receiving a gift, expected or not, and I love being able to share my finds (with everyone) so they can have a gift experience that includes a smile, gasp, scream or kiss.

Check back here weekly for some great ideas. In the meantime, here’s one from my blog archives:

I love a good dinner and a show, but doesn't it seem everyone is doing that?! Here's a tip on how to upgrade the dinner and a show (really any kind of show, from The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall in NYC to On Q Productions at Sprit Square): Instead of driving you and your wife/date to your favorite restaurant and performance, hire a car service. It really does elevate the evening, plus you and your significant other can enjoy bubbly with reckless abandon.

This gift would be perfect for a birthday, wedding anniversary or some other celebration...and of course it would be very impressive if there wasn't an occasion at all and you just wanted to step out of the norm, I'm just sayin’! There are plenty of car services that can be found in your area. Here in Charlotte the services include Alto Transportation, Rose Transportation and many others. If you don't want to blindly pick a car service, call a local hotel and ask to speak to the concierge – they can make great recommendations.

Don't forget to make your experience a night to remember!
