Need a Gift Idea? Shoppes at Arbor Lakes Says Try “Action Gifts”
It’s a concept that is catching on: “action gifts,” or gifts families can participate together in. At The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes, there are a couple action gift options.
Pottery Activities Through Color Me Mine
Color Me Mine offers many ideas to get creative with pottery.
“We could make your handprint into Santa Clause right now. We can make menorahs,” said Christina Hankins, owner of Color Me Mine.
Families can come in and choose the type of pottery they’d like to paint. Color Me Mine offers different options for children and for adults.
“Painting gifts has been very popular especially. We also have ornaments and lots of families will come in a do an ornament. We have to-go kits where if you wanted to take ornaments home to paint, especially if you have very little kids that have very short attention spans,” said Hankins.
Since you are painting with glaze on pottery, the turnaround time is about seven days to have the pieces fired and ready. There’s also gift cards at Color Me Mine if you’re running out of time.
Get Creative with Scents at Olfactory Scent Studio
You’ll find another kind of action gift experience at Olfactory Scent Studio. The store has hundreds of scents to choose from that can you blend into candles, reed diffusers, sprays, lotions and bath products.
“Ultimately, where everything comes together is you come and create a scent specifically for a person,” said Sue Brady, owner of Olfactory Scent Studio.
There are many unique scents that you could combine including dirt and leather that perhaps may have you thinking about being at a baseball game or working in the garden.
