Berg: Fashionable gifts for holiday giving

FARGO - A great gift doesn’t have to cost a lot to be both special and thoughtful.

With that in mind, I went on a search for Fargo’s most fabulous Christmas gifts, ranging from $5 to $150 for the most important women in your life: your girlfriend, wife, mom, daughter, sister or friend. The best part is you don’t have to spend a lot of money to give her something stylish that she’ll love.

My search took me to downtown Fargo, where I first stopped at ShannaLee. The chic and exclusive boutique has many beautiful, one-of-a-kind items.

Here are a few of my favorite picks from the store:

It may seem simple, but the most precious gift you could ever give someone you care about is your time. My husband loves this quote from Ronald Reagan, “The biggest change begins at the dinner table.”

In the rush of our busy day-to-day lives, we actually forget what is most important in life: the time we spend with each other.

We all know how quickly time flies, so why not make a promise to spend valuable time with the women you love this holiday season?

You could add a thoughtful card to any one of the wonderful gifts I mentioned above, and in it describe whatever special plans you will commit to do together.

I am sure – whether it’s your wife, mom, daughter, sister or friend – she will be thrilled.

I came across this quote: “In life, we remember the moments not the days.”

Fill your Christmas with unforgettable moments this year by not only giving a fabulous present but by giving the best gift of all: you.
