- I am saving for the 2nd largest purchase of my life so far. I am in less than no rush to get it but all help is incredible.

— I love Jamba Juice and Starbucks gifts cards. Probably my favorite cards to have on hand.

— Other gift cards include: Cinemark gift card, iTunes gift card, Roam gift card, or Nation’s gift certificates, all of which are nice to have when you need a milkshake, burger, song, or something online.

Here are some links to particular styles I like of the larger specimens:



Gifts cards to Orchard Nursery or Clocks Etc. in Lafayette would also be a delight. Or if you see a single-stake flower that you think needs a home with the Smyth family, we welcome all varieties and colors.
