Packing for New York

An in-person Airbnb experience and my university reunion are bringing me back to New York for the first time since March 2020. I’ve signed up for Shop Bargain Manhattan Thrift Stores to keep me busy until I meet up with other Birkbeck alumni in the evening. Here’s an idealized version of what I’m packing in my tote for the busy day. If I find myself with unoccupied time, I plan to consult the New York Guide.

Useful Holiday Gifts (Les Femmes)

Holiday gifts for women.

Finding a gift for everyone on your holiday list may be stressful. Thus, it is important to keep a few things in mind. A gift is supposed to be a symbol of your love and affection for someone else. It’s the thought that really counts. Being thoughtful doesn’t have anything to do with the amount of money you spend. If all else fails, a gift card (perhaps, from a local establishment) will do just fine. For someone who has everything, consider donating to a charity in his/her name. World Vision and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust come to mind. The gift of membership to a local museum may also be worthy of your consideration.
