Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies Review + Giveaway

gourmet-gift-baskets-happy-hanukkah-oreo-cookiesOne of my favorite things when I was a teenager and I hosted slumber parties one of my favorite treats were Chocolate Covered Oreos.

Truth be told, I would deliberately make my friends think they were not good so that I would have more. This plan was 1 part genius and 1 part selfish and inevitably I would end up sharing despite my deep desire to hoard them to myself.

When I was contacted recently from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw their Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies I was reminded of those moments of indulgence.

RefrigiWear: Fleece Jacket Review

RefrigiWear: Fleece Jacket Review + Giveaway

refrigiwear-logoI will be the first to admit that as a San Diegan, I see very little weather changes. Generally speaking the weather is 70’s and sunny – at least that is what people will make you believe.

While our temperatures are ideal, I must run cold because despite our ideal temperatures I am always cold. I can be outside or in my house and I am always cold. Since I spend so much of my time cold, I am on a constant search to find a jacket or sweater that will keep me cool.

Top 9 Subscription Boxes of 2016

Our Favorite Monthly Subscription Boxes of 2016

GourmetGiftBaskets.com: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review + Giveaway

nostalgic-basketIf there is one way to describe me, nostalgic comes to mind. I love to see things from my youth, and have began a collection of old toys and advertisements.

One thing that always reminds me of my childhood is candy. I remember when I was young, my father would take me to breakfast each weekend, and while he sat and chatted with friends, I would go over to the general store in the same center and purchase a couple of pieces of candy. My choices were usually items that would give me more candy, for less cost.

When I was recently contacted by GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and took a little time to peruse their website, I was immediately struck with gift inspiration – the first thing that caught my eye was the Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate.

Luxor Linens: Egyptian Cotton Waffle Robe Review

Luxor Linens: Egyptian Cotton Waffle Robe Review + Giveaway

waffle-hers-robeAs we march into the holidays our thoughts are starting to turn to lists and options for gift giving.

I am not sure about you but I have always had such a hard time coming up with nice gifts that will be the perfect mix of useful and thoughtful. There really is nothing worse than being excited about giving somebody a gift that you are excited about, only to see the person crestfallen when they open the gift.

One way I have found that can reverse this disappointment is to purchase a gender neutral but useful gift. If you are looking for such a gift, look no further than Luxor Linens and their complete lines of sheets and robes.
