Editor’s Letter

I ’m always amazed at how quickly our surroundings change from pumpkins and trick-or-treaters to snowflakes and holiday carolers. The enjoyment of holiday excitement can be felt from all and the warmth of friends and family is truly magical during the holiday season.

We hope this issue of exclusively yours ® keeps your sprits high as we help make your

season bright. Spread some holiday cheer by giving a one-of-a-kind gift in our annual

gift-giving guide, “The Gift List.” Whether you’re planning ahead or are a list-minute

shopper, you can wrap up your holiday shopping with these perfect gifts for everyone

on your list.

Don’t let the cold weather keep you indoors. Turn to “Holiday Hideaways” and hit the

slopes or soak up the sun this season on a warm-water cruise or big city adventure.

Whether you’re getting together with a few close friends or celebrating big with the

whole family, getaway, relax and mingle all winter long.

Regardless if you’re giving gifts, taking a trip or hitting the hottest holiday party, you’ll

want to dress to impress in “Glam On”. Sparkle and shine with glittery styles or get

cozy in flannel shirts and warm sweaters. And don’t forget the kids – there is something

for them, too!

And while you’re out and about this holiday season, make sure to check out our newest

merchant partner, Texas Roadhouse! They’re sure to make your belly happy and full!

Until next time, happy shopping, happy holidays, and enjoy this truly magical holiday season!

Focus On


Landry’s, Inc. Family Concepts Partnering With The Crayon Initiative Houston – Landry’s concepts, The Aquarium, Rainforest Cafe and T-Rex Cafe, are partnering with The Crayon Initiative to help collect unwanted crayons that will be transformed into new art supplies for children’s in-hospital art programs. The restaurants will be placing collection boxes at each of their locations across the country. Each of the restaurants encourage customers to discard their used crayons that accompany children’s menus into the Crayon Initiative collection box following their meal. Once the box is filled, the crayons will be sent to The Crayon Initiative to be melted down and remanufactured. The concepts join other Landry’s restaurant, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., who started its partnership in March 2016. Launched in 2011, The Crayon Initiative collects and refurbishes the unwanted crayons from restaurants that would otherwise be discarded in landfills. The remanufactured crayons are then donated to children’s hospitals’ art programs that help kids continue normal childhood development, enhance problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and promote creativity and imagination.
