Gift Idea: Golden Pears (and Apples too!)

I hope everyone had a wonderful, long Thanksgiving weekend!  We greatly enjoyed our family time and are sad that it flew by so quickly!  We enjoyed so much fantastic food...we are still warming up leftovers!  And we certainly did our fair share of late night holiday shopping.  That's right.  We were in line at Target at 10:30pm Thanksgiving night.  Bill, Kiki and I had a blast in the balmy (for Minnesota in November) 50 degree weather waiting for the doors to open so we could fly down the aisles.  And, it's true, Target was actually our second stop of the night.  We stopped at Walmart shortly after it's 10pm opening and nearly lost our lives at the bargain DVD bins.  I did not get the DVD's I really wanted, but I got a few others and I'm alive to tell the tale, so that's good.

Since I have holiday shopping on the mind, I thought I would post today about a great, inexpensive gift idea.  While at Pier 1 a couple weeks ago, I came across these adorable ceramic golden pears:

They are priced at $3 each...and I had a 15% off coupon that I used to drop the price to $2.55 each.  I wish I had images of the apples, but I'm not able to find them on the Pier 1 website currently.  (If I'm able to find the link, I'll add it to this post.)  I can't help but think these would be an adorable teacher's gift, especially the golden apple!  I can just picture it sitting on a teacher's desk:).  And seriously, you cannot beat the $3 price tag!

Update:  Here is the link for the pears and apples at Pier1.

Happy Shopping!  Other recent gift ideas are posted here, here and here.


  1. those are really cute! I need to see if I can find them the next time I'm in Pier 1!

  2. They had lots of them at my store, and they were in the Christmas decorations area. $3 is the original full price of them too!
