January Month-Long Observances and National Holidays

With Unusual Gift Ideas and Poems for A Month of January Fun


International Gourmet Coffee Month

January is International Gourmet Coffee Month

Thirty-one days to experience a world of coffee

Try roasted beans from the different continents

And this month don't attempt going caffeine-free


Buy this cool cup for yourself and one as a gift

It is a caffeine-molecule mug designed cleverly

A great gift for January-birthday coffee drinkers

And to honor a Gourmet Coffee Month properly


National Baking Month

Bake oodles of new breads and cakes in January

Try your hand at different baked treats each day

Gather all your friends together for a fun bake-off

And compete for Best Baker in the friendliest way


Give these cool denim-style muffin-top baking cups

As the January National Baking Month first prize

Then whip up a big batch from the winning recipe

And give your ravenous kids a home-baked surprise


National Bath Safety Month

January is also known as National Bath Safety Month

Focus safety on your babies, toddlers and seniors too

Make the bathroom a safer place for the whole family

And keep your eyes on little ones all the way through


Buy this adorable and unique police rubber ducky

To remind everyone to watch littlest kids in the tub

Never step onto a wet tile floor without a bathmat

And keep bathrooms clean with a good daily scrub


National Blood Donor Month

National Blood Donor Month is a call to action

Time to set up community blood-donation drives

And congrats if you regularly donate your blood

For January is about saving other people's lives


Blood donors save countless lives every year

So take time to honor blood donors in your life

Give this inspiring and funny blood-donor mug

To your boss, co-worker, husband or your wife


National Braille Literacy Month

Louis Braille wasn't your average teenage boy

He was blind as a child from when he was four

He invented his reading system at age fifteen

And his raised dots are in use today even more


To honor Louis and National Braille Literacy Month

Buy Who Was Louis Braille? for school kids to read

They will develop respect for the visually impaired

And for this fine teenager who was brilliant indeed


National Fat-Free Living Month

January is also National Fat-Free Living Month

A time to focus on clean eating and losing weight

This pairs perfectly with New Year's resolutions

To get back into shape so you look and feel great


If you packed on the pounds in December holidays

And you're determined to go fat-free for some time

You should buy The Fat-Free Junk Food Cookbook

For January without any junk food at all is a crime


National Hobby Month

Spend fewer hours on your social media websites

Stream less movies and turn off the TV for a while

National Hobby Month is for finding new interests

So find a fun hobby that gives you reason to smile


If you are wondering what hobby you might enjoy

The Big Book of Hobby Ideas was written for you

Filled with hundreds of ideas for men and women

You will find one that is exciting and enjoyable too


National Hot Tea Month

Few things are as relaxing as hot tea day or night

Brew a cup for National Hot Tea Month in January

Buy the funny Sir Tea Infuser as a gift for yourself

Then kick back and relax while drinking peacefully


Try out a bunch of different herbal teas this month

Like rooibos, chamomile and cooling spearmint too

Many herbal teas have remarkable health benefits

So drinking hot tea is satisfying and good for you


National Meat Month

This is a different take on National Meat Month

It's Meat Loaf's epic and operatic Bat Out of Hell

Rock out all month with songs by Jim Steinman

While being respectful to all vegetarians as well


January is a month for carnivores to eat their fill

Because the types of food that we eat are a choice

But everyone can fall in love again with Meat Loaf

For the music, the lyrics and his spectacular voice


National Oatmeal Month

January is recognized as National Oatmeal Month

Make a big bowl of hot oatmeal porridge every day

Health practitioners agree that oats are good for you

Which means you'll start the year off in the right way


Oatmeal may be a healthy addition to what you eat

But it's beneficial for your skin and complexion too

Choose Organic Oatmeal Spa Soap for January gifts

And buy an extra bar of this exfoliating soap for you


National Slow Cooking Month

For places where January is the coldest time

National Slow Cooking Month is a good idea

Slow cookers can help you make healthy meals

So resorting to takeout you don't need to fear


Nothing beats the practicality of a Crock Pot

When you get home your food is ready to eat

Give this limited-edition, patterned slow cooker

To a friend as a January gift and kitchen treat


National Soup Month

Start your day off with eating your oatmeal porridge

Then cook yummy soup in your slow cooker at night

Because all of January is also National Soup Month

You will be honoring every food tradition just right


From best-selling author and illustrator Tedd Arnold

Comes There's A Fly Guy In My Soup for reading fun

This is a great gift for all children aged four to eight

And as a January book choice this is your perfect one


January Birthstone Is the Garnet


January Birthstone Garnet Gift

The recognized birthstone for January is the garnet

It's a symbol of eternal friendship and your trust too

Give this beautiful garnet tennis bracelet in 14K gold

As a January birthday gift to a good friend from you


Garnet comes from the word granatum meaning seed

And appears in a rainbow of colors from red to green

Most garnets come from Africa, India and Sri Lanka

Where January's birthstone is more commonly seen


January Birth Flower Is the Carnation


January Birth Flower Carnation Gift

January's birth flower is the beautiful carnation

It represents love, beauty and gratitude as well

Carnations come in different shades and colors

All of which are strikingly magnificent and swell


For people who celebrate birthdays in January

This Thai hand-carved carnation soap is divine

The hexagonal pine wood case will last forever

And the hand-carved flower is delicate and fine
