Where has the year gone? I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe it is the holiday season again! But, it is, and the elves have visited the store and put together our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide just for you!
A brand new arrival for us .. Lokai Bracelets are made for those of us that are On Top of the World, At our Lowest Point or somewhere in the middle. Made with mud from the Dead Sea and water from the peaks of Mount Everest, this bracelet is the perfect symbol of balance, and a fabulous way to move into the new year.
This is a favorite for me this year. Recommended by a friend, it is a constant reminder that no matter how bad things may seem, we should always remain hopeful. And then again, on those days when everything is great…a reminder to stay humble and thankful.
Looking for locally made gifts for your wee ones? Sheepy Shoes are locally sourced and perfect for keeping tiny toes warm! They are created from upcycled wool, a perfect “green” option. An added bonus for new little walkers: they have flexible leather soles- perfect for squishy-fat baby feet.
I only have one little one on my list this year, but she is definitely getting a warm pair of these slippers for a cold Connecticut winter!
How great it would be to have a jewelry piece that would allow you to express yourself in a different way every day? Lenny & Eva is a is a fun and funky jewelry line out of Tennessee that allows you do just that!!! Designed to inspire women of all ages, in all walks of their lives. We hope you find inspiration in our collection of Lenny & Eva, and take the opportunity to share an inspiring message with the important women in your lives.
My favorite part of Lenny & Eva? They are based in Tennessee…home of Moonpies….in every order that we receive here at the store, they sneak in a little mini moonpie! It makes the chore of unpacking boxes alot more fun!!!
Have you ever had a perfectly baked aged Brie cheese topped with sweet, fruit jam and nuts? If you haven’t you need to pick up one of Brie Bakers for yourself (you’re welcome) and if you have, you know the wonders of a perfectly baked Brie. Our brie bakers and their delicious sidekicks, brie toppings, are the perfect gift for the cheese connoisseur in your life.
If you know me personally then you know why this is one of my favorites EVERY year. Dick and I both love cheese, and there is nothing better than a melted brie with our cranberry/almond topping….paired with a crusty French baguette and red wine!
You know that mother-in-law, sister-in-law, sister or best friend (or maybe you are that best friend) that loves to host get-togethers but doesn’t have room for one more of anything? Nora Fleming has created a contemporary, elegant serveware that is absolutely stunning and ideal for the hostess who has it all (except space)! Fun, creative, festive, versatile and functional best describes this collection of beautiful serving pieces.
With interchangeable “Mini” ornaments, you can dress one dish for any occasion. No need to store your Christmas platter away for next year, you can continue to use it all year long.
Makes a unique gift, and your recipient can come back any time to add to their Mini collection (and you have another gift idea for their birthday!).
I personally own a Nora Fleming piece and several Minis. For someone like me, who does more entertaining at the store than at home, I love the simplicity of this line!!! And who doesn’t like to collect little things???
Have you ever had to show up to the Annual Christmas Fiesta with a saran wrapped bowl? Or worse…a tupperware bowl! Not classy! Charles Viancin Silicone Lids are the perfect solution to the party debacle! No more struggling with plastic wrap or foil. This handy lid creates an airtight seal and works with any smooth-rimmed bowl or pot. Heat-resistant, food-safe silicone lid allows for quick cooking, steaming and reheating in either the oven or the microwave and can also be used as a splatter guard. A fun, unique gift to give to anyone who loves to attend parties but is always messing with saran wrap.
Need I say more? I microwave practically everything I eat, so I use these lids on a daily basis!!! And their wine stoppers and drink markers are regulars in my gift closet…perfect for a last minute hostess gift.
I hope this helps start your list this year, and I look forward to seeing you in the store soon!!!!
