One of my ultra-favorite things is my electric kettle. I don't have this exact model, but I have recommended it to friends and family. Nothing better than a fast-boiling kettle of hot water for tea, coffee, cocoa, for quick-boiling pasta water, and the list goes on. It's pretty too!
this pen! It's a delight to write!
We must keep our lips nice and soft and chap-free this winter so I'll share my favorite lip balm -- Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm in the tin. (comes in a stick too) I love this stuff for my lips, but also for my oftentimes-chapped-nose and for cracked finger tips. The light peppermint smell gives me a lift and a slight zing on the lips.
If you like a little color and shine in your lip balm, grab Burts Bees Lip Shimmer, but don't go putting it on your nose unless you are starring as Rudolph in the School Christmas Play. I like the raisin color.
Now for those of you who sew, quilt, embroider or clip threads of any kind, the EZ Snip from Famore is my favorite tool! I don't stitch without it. A sewist-friend of mine gave me my snipper for Christmas one year and I adore it.
Red jingle bell stick from Pier 1. I love this!
I wish you happy gift-giving! It doesn't have to be expensive. Let it be a favorite thing!
