Spring is just days away, and we’ve  added a special category – Spring Favorites – to our website with books and products great for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, weddings, anniversaries, bridal showers, all coming up soon.

And, to celebrate the season, we’ve got a little contest for you where the prize is a $50 gift card to use when you order from

In 1835 famous British poet Lord Alfred Tennyson wrote Locksley Hall. In the poem, he says: “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.”

Our contest challenge for you is to fill in the blanks to complete these sentences:

In the Spring a man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of _______________


In the Spring a woman’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of _______________

This contest is over and the winner of the $50 gift card code is Dodie Maslow.

We had many to choose from, and we chose her answers because of how she phrased her response in a poetic fashion. Here’s what she wrote:

“In the Spring a man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of sunshine on his back and the stillness of the water on a good fishing trip.

“In the Spring a woman’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of the smell of a good rain, a warm bath, and flowers in bloom.”
