Today is the day that I started my Christmas shopping. I hate to get behind and I love shopping online, so I had a fun day finding treasures and great deals. Here are some gifts I love, and am therefore buying for people I love:
I love aprons. I wear them all the time or I ruin my clothes…that’s exactly the kind of cook I am. And as long as I have to wear an apron, I might as well feel like Lucy Ricardo, yes? Jessie Steele aprons are luscious, vintage creations that beg to be worn while stirring a simmering pot of beef stew or taking warm cookies from the oven. Here’s another one I can’t stop myself from coveting:
These aprons are cute and quite expensive. Recently, however, I discovered that both Ross and TJ Maxx have some pretty adorable aprons in their kitchen area for just $8. Add it to a fun set of mixing bowls, a chef’s pan or even just your favorite recipe, and you will be the hero of the gift exchange.
For the young ladies on your list, I love Mark makeup – it’s the hip division of Avon and their stuff is wonderful and very inexpensive which only adds to the wonder. I love this compact because it has NINE eyeshadows and it flips to reveal NINE lip glosses…exciting!
It’s a steal at $20.
Another thing I love from Mark is this:
I really want the burnt orange one…and so I’m not buying it for any of my daughters. And I’m hoping they read my blog. Fingers crossed.
Whitney is a Mark representative and she can hook you up with gifts that are very cool, but won’t cost a lot. You can find her at this web site.
So, be honest: what’s on your wish list this year?
I love pre-decking the halls with you!
P.S. Next week: great gifts for the literary set.
