Bug Off!

Now that summer is almost here, I am introducing my Summer Weekend Gift Tips. Every Monday from now until Labor Day I will post some gift ideas that will hopefully provide an answer to the common challenge of what to bring when you are a guest at someone’s home.

With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, I thought I would share a great little secret I wrote about in my Departures column last summer. These incense sticks—smaller than the ones I originally wrote about—ward off insects without giving off that terrible chemical odor. They are available in 3 scents: citronella, lavender and geranium, and they also easily camouflage into any backyard’s landscape.

Last year when I wrote about these they sold out in merely days, so beat the rush (and the bugs) this summer and buy yours today.
