Cathi's Corner

Check out the B section this week for some fabulous gift ideas. This year’s “Covid Christmas” is a little different. And yes, some folks think buying online or getting gift certificates are the safest gifts this year. Well, guess what?!?! Hermann has a lot of places to get gift certificates, gift cards and online shopping.

A gift certificate to get your hair done? Your car worked on or cleaned? Appliances worked on or for your cowboy a gift certificate to MFA? What about a gift card from Hermann Lumber that will take care of your DYI worker and in the spring help the gardeners out?

Don’t forget food.  Who doesn’t LOVE 4th street pizza. The pizza is great but the fettucine Alfredo is to die for.

Ricky’s Chocolate Box even has FREE SHIPPING on 2 pounds or more anywhere in the United States! Call or go online. Saleigh Mountain, Hermann’s great leather store; will send your gift certificate to someone for you in a cute little Christmas card. Wow, one phone call, Molly will help you pick a gift and then you’re done. Perfect!

You know what else is perfect? Gas gift cards. Go ahead and make the joke; who doesn’t want to have gas for Christmas? Ha

 I can’t think of a better gift than one from a pharmacy. Both drug stores in Hermann offer gift certificates for anything in their store. I would love to get a month of medicine free. Wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t you mom? After all, she doesn’t need another thingamajig or whatchamacallit.  Food I tell you! Food and gas is what we all need and then medicine to fix our upset tummy.

Shopping aside, I think the Christmas of 2020 will be one of the most peaceful Christmases ever. If you have a funny, heart-touching story or memory about Christmas, please let us know. We would love to share it with all our readers. In the meantime, have a good week, stay safe and love each other.
