2015 ANNUAL

From area charities & nonprofits

Our Catalog of Giving has experienced a major growth spurt in its third holiday season.
We have residents of the Mid-Valley to thank for this
expansion. After all, if it wasnt for the generosity of
individuals, families and neighborhood groups, this unique
catalog would have been remembered as a nice idea that
didnt take root.

The rest is up to you, dear readers. Please peruse the catalog


and search for the right match for you and your family. So
many nonprofits are in need of tangible donations, everything
from kitty litter to refrigerators to mittens to pickup trucks.
The range is wide and the need is deep.

Just the opposite occurred. Last year we saw wishes galore


granted after the catalog appeared in the fat Thanksgiving
edition of the Statesman Journal, one of the most highly
consumed and valued newspapers of the year.

Please remember to contact us when you are ready to grant


the wish and deliver your donation.

This year we made a leap in reproduction quality by publishing


the catalogue within the glossy pages of our annual Holiday
Gift Guide.

We want to include a photo for our digital scrapbook.


On behalf of the more than 100 members of the Statesman
Journal staff, thanks so much for your support and generosity.

By doing so we also added extra days of exposure time for


the catalog, inserting it into the Sunday paper in advance of
Thanksgiving.
We set a record this year by welcoming 130 nonprofit
programs into the catalog, an increase of 60 over 2014. It
was our intention to make room for any and all nonprofits
to submit requests.

Special to the Statesman Journal

The Christmas season is filled with family


and cheer and if your home needs a little
cheering up, there are many ways to do
this.
If you are wondering what the best ways
are to spruce up your home for the
holidays, here are 10 ideas to help you get
started.

help in the short term, but throughout the


season.
Once youve had your home thoroughly
cleaned, its much easier to stay on top
of it, he said. We can also come in after
your party and do all the cleaning for you.

3. Add sparkle to the rooms in your


home.
Candles, ribbon and jewels of gold and

silver can enlighten the senses and bring a
sense of joy to a room. Donna ONeill,

Sprucing Up Your Home

room in a home. It doesnt have to cost a


lot to make a small room shine. McHenry
Remodeling has worked on projects that
often end up being DIY gone wrong, or
they can do it right and give you several
options to make your counters gleam.
6. Give your walls a seasonal
makeover
How many years have your walls had the
same pictures and dcor? Consider
switching out your art for pieces that
reflect the seasons. Consider mixing
a variety of mediums such as
photography, paintings,
sculptures, metal art and
more. Willamette Valley
artisans offer a wide
variety of options and
can be purchased at local
shops or at Christmas
bazaars and markets.
7. Dont just put
up one tree, put up
several.
If you have
a large
home with
several
gathering
areas,
consider
putting
up
more
than one
tree.

Trees of every shape and size can be


found and can add spirit to any room.
Give each tree its own special theme or
stay traditional. Wrap and decorate empty
packages to place under each tree.
8. Enhance the senses.
Put a variety of seasonal fragrances around
your home. Candles, aromatics, essential
oil, diffusers and even baking can enrich
peoples senses. Cinnamon, cloves and
apples are great scents to begin with.
9. Slipcovers can change the look
of older furniture.
If your couch or chairs are getting a bit
dated and you dont want to replace them
just yet, new slipcovers for them could
bring new life to the room. Accentuate the
new covers with some throw pillows or a
lap blanket.
10. Break out the lights.
Enhance the safety and the look of
your home with new outdoor lighting,
suggested Kayla Vanlydegraf, vice
president of marketing at Dales
Remodeling.
Curb appeal is number one,
she said. Nicer accent lighting
is great, especially when you are
entertaining outside. A simple
change to indoor lighting can
also make a big difference,
especially for elderly
guests. Vanlydegraf said
adding sensors to a
room that will turn
on the lights when
someone enters
can make their stay
safer.

SHOPPING FOR MEN


S P O I L T H AT M A N I N Y O U R L I F E
By David Hegel

Special to the Statesman Journal

hen shopping for a guy


and coming up with
nothing, growlers are an
easy win assuming
hes got a favorite brew.
Growler stations have proliferate with
beer, cider, kombucha and seasonal
novelties all on tap, and the 64-ounce
containers (or 32-ounce growlettes) come
in myriad designs, including the Blazers,
Beavers and Timbers.
A gift card to Growl Movement (locations
in Keizer and South Salem) will actually get
used instead of forgotten in a junk drawer.
Outdoorsmen
A Go Kit is a ready-to-go pack of
thing to help you and yours to survive
in an emergency situation earthquake,
stranded in the wilderness, zombies
and an all-purpose knife is an essential
component.
Kershaw Knives, headquartered up I5 in
Tualatin, can give your guy an edge.
For a Go Kit, you want a somewhat
larger knife since its going to have to take
care of all your knife needs, says Isidora
Forrest with Kershaw, from cutting
rope to rigging up a shelter to cutting up
dinner.
The Kershaw Blur with Glassbreaker
($124.99) is lightweight with a partiallyserrated blade to handle cutting rope or
fabric. The carbide point in the handle
busts through windows to help with rescue

58

Gifts for Him

or escape.
For everyday utility, Kershaw recommends
the Cryo folding knife ($54.99), an
affordable workhorse designed with
practicality in mind by knife maker Rick
Hinderer. For extra cool, another $5 gets
a blackwash look instead of the (also nice)
matte gray.
Camping gear doesnt always last as long
as a good knife, and last summers supplies
may be up for retirement.
Mega Markdown gets liquidation,
overstock and discontinue items from
other sellers, and that means a lot of outof-season items.
Owner Cathy McClaughry saw a lot of
camping chairs and cots come through
last fall, but youll have to check out the
store (4825 Commercial St. S) or their

Facebook page to see the exact treasure


on hand for guys already looking forward
to spring.
Gamers
Monopoly, Sorry and Risk are so run-ofthe-mill even gussied up with Star Wars
or other licensed properties but there
are so many new games with novel designs
available at Borderlands Games (546 High
St. NE).
Co-owner Camille Jones recommends 7
Wonders a game similar to the Settlers
of Cataan series. Each player draws
potential cards and tries to choose the
best way to construct their civilizations
Wonder of the World. Players draw
cards and try to keep whats most helpful
while avoiding passing on cards that would
benefit the competition.
Net runner is another card game thats
grown popular since its 2012 release. Two
players fight for control of data one a
hacker, one a corporation. The base set
($39.99) has all you to need to play, but
expansion packs offer more fun for players
who cant get enough.

Smart Watches are


a quintessential gift
because theyre still
more cool than useful.

Theres a sillier time to be had with


Munchkin, which lampoons the clichs of
role playing and adventure games. With
many genre variants, it makes a great gift
if you just know a dude likes pirates, sci-fi,
zombies, Westerns, superheroes or even
Adventure Time (the surreal Cartoon
Network show has an even larger adult
following than My Little Pony).
Finally, combining the horse track and
hump-based humor is Camel (C)Up
($39.99). Place bets on five colored
camels then roll dice to see who moves
but each round is rife with interference
and upsets as the camels tend to
unexpectedly carry each other.
Techies
Smart Watches are a quintessential gift
because theyre still more cool than
useful.
For those with iPhones, the Apple Watch
is the most compatible option but starts
at $349 and is a first-generation product.
When the next iteration arrives, itll likely
fix many things that seem obvious in
hindsight.

People playing in the Android sandbox


have a few choices, with most based on
Googles Android Wear software.
CNET likes the looks of the LG Watch
Urbane ($250-$350). Its the third LG
smartwatch attempt with a brilliant OLED
display and classic design.
Motorolas MOTO 360 ($150250) follows the ethos of the Moto
smartphones surprisingly cheap and
capable.
For those with an independent streak,
the Pebble Time ($200) stands out. The
whole Pebble family started out as a
Kickstarter project, and the Time is a
refinement of the original concept, with
iPhones/Android compatibility, solid apps
and water-resistant design.
If youre at a complete loss and in danger
of resorting to a necktie, at least ride
the zeitgeist and look on Etsy for some
surprisingly classy Darth Vader designs.
