The holidays are the most wonderful time of year. But this year, in particular, they’re much more than just good times and gluttonous gifting. Giving is our theme for the season – be it happiness or hope, style or support. Our guide to gifting mixes the pleasures of the holiday with helping those in need. Merry giving.

 

GIVE WARMTH

Rekindle the spirit of the holiday. This beautifully scented candle from New York City’s premiere florist, Belle Fleur, is as gracious as it is glamorous.

GIVE HAPPINESS

Unwrap a smile. These soft, snuggly stuffed animals are sure to bring joy to any girl or boy.

GIVE LOVE

This one-of-a-kind stone, set in 14-karat gold, is reminiscent of the Sandy Hook shoreline. Dubbed the “Officers’ Row” pendant by its designer, Gem of an Idea’s Maureen Bay, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the FoodBank of Neptune.

Renderings of the characters from the book “A Wind in the Willows Christmas,” which will have its world premiere on stage as a musical at the Two River Theater.

GIVE WONDER

The magic of the theater is a surprise and delight for all ages. This holiday, treat someone to a performance of A Wind in the Willows Christmas — a classic tale about true friendship by the Two River Theater Company. The Tuesday, Dec. 11, show is a dedicated performance for local families impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Visit www.trtc.org for details on how to donate or become a family sponsor.

 

 

GIVE HOPE

A beautiful reminder of a day in the life at the Jersey Shore, painted by local artist Steven Weston and aptly titled Brand New Day. It’s an inspiring gift for anyone who believes in the heroic efforts to restore our shore.

GIVE CHEER

For families affected by Hurricane Sandy, the Atlantic Club’s Wish Upon a Star Toy Drive is playing Santa. Donate new, unwrapped toys and make a child’s holiday wish come true.

GIVE RELIEF

For those who’ve lost everything, give the gift of a bright future. Donate in your name, or a friend’s, to these worthy causes: Sea Bright Rising, Hope for Highlands and Rebuild our Shore.

GIVE STYLE

Love, support, courage, confidence – for the woman who gives her family everything, this coveted shearling and leather carryall is the gift of her dreams.

GIVE PEACE

Because life has been anything but normal, give the ultimate escape: a day of relaxation at the Mosaic Salon and Spa. Massage, facial, salt glow – it’s serenity, now.
