Know someone who wants to make their own sodas without the artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives? Give them a SodaStream Starter Kit so they can make soda at home.
For your loved ones who are crazy for coffee, give them a Nespresso Aeroccino Plus. This fancy machine froths milk so you can top your favorite beverages with foam. Now the only problem you’ll have is trying to decide what to make next: a cappuccino, hot chocolate, or latte?
For the health minded friends in your life, give them a DIY Kombucha Kit so they can begin brewing their own probiotic drinks.
I love maple syrup—the taste (of course!) and the scent. This candle caught my eye when I saw that it smells like maple syrup. These candles are hand made in small batches using soy wax. Did you know that soy wax burns cleaner, longer, and brighter than paraffin candles? Plus, when you’re done burning the candle, you can reuse the container (simply wash it with soap and water).
If you’ve ever shipped gifts, traveled with presents, or tried saving bows, you are probably familiar with my plight—squished bows. Sure, if the ribbon has wired edges, you can certainly fluff it back to life. But what about non-wired ribbon or if you are shipping a gift with a bow? The answer: Tissue paper and air pockets. Find our more about my secrets for saving your bows after the jump.
Has the hustle and bustle of planning for Christmas left you or your dear ones feeling tired or stressed? Give the give of relaxation! Go ahead and treat yourself, too!

This neck massager is great to have handy at home or the office for whenever you need some stress relief.
These little earrings are made from an unexpected material… table confetti! What?? Yeah, I know it’s surprising, but true. The snowflakes in this bag of confetti are plastic, not paper, as you might first assume. I used an X-Acto to “drill” a hole in the snowflakes, but you could use a real drill if you feel comfortable enough to use it.
These earrings are quick and easy, so they would make a great last minute gift for any of the ladies still on your shopping list.

The closer Christmas gets, the more I look forward to partaking in my family’s yearly traditions. One of them is sipping hot cocoa and nibbling on panettone on Christmas Eve. I’m convinced that cocoa (or tea) tastes better in a pretty mug. This ceramic mug is hand painted in a lovely navy blue. The variations in the paint makes it look bright blue in some areas and brown near the edges. I especially like the contrast of the stark white snowflakes against the dark blue background.
A wreath covered in yarn stirs up warm feelings of home, plus it is a beautiful and inviting decoration to have on your door. I used a thick, chunky yarn to wrap the wreath which allowed me to wrap the wreath in less time than I anticipated. Yay! To make the appliqués shown here, follow this tutorial. Choose your yarn color and appliqués, then get to craftin’!
