Hanukkah has just passed and Christmas is next week! Here are a few things that either I have (and love) or want, plus a fun gift wrapping idea. Most of these items can arrive before Christmas if you act fast!
SALT, FAT, ACID, HEAT by Samin Nosrat
DINING IN by Alison Roman
THE ESSENTIAL INSTANT POT COOKBOOK by Coco Morante
and of course….
THE FOREST FEAST FOR KIDS — all links on Amazon Prime and can arrive in 2 days
4. FOR THE HOME
CANON SELPHY PRINTER: I use mine to print 4x6s from my phone in an instant. I put them on the fridge and mail them to the grandparents so easily!
CANDLES: I light a candle at dinner every night and try to use natural toxin-free beeswax candles. I can never have enough!
BEES WRAP: I was recently gifted some of this sustainable plastic wrap alternative and I love it!
SWISS-STYLE WOOL BLANKET. This has been on our couch for a couple years now, love it.
UMAMI MART: All my favorite barware and cocktail glasses are from Umami Mart. Especially these gold-rimmed tumblers (see below) and gold cocktail shaker. Treat-yo-self (or someone else… Dec. 19th is the last day to order for Christmas delivery.)
INSTAX POLAROID camera. SO fun! I like taking pics of people at parties and giving them the pic as a favor. Also makes a fun gift tag (see the video above!)
5. FOR KIDS
a membership to a meditation app like Calm. I like to listen before bed.
7. TO WEAR
My favorite crimson-red holiday party dress I find it pretty flattering & forgiving. And warm. My mom borrowed mine to wear to a party last week and she looked great!
Moroccan Slippers - a friend brought me some from Morocco recently and I live in them around the house.
I want these leopard yoga pants!
Instead of “stuff” how about making a donation in someone’s name? Here are a few suggestions:
CSA, a California-based organization that fights poverty
Mazon, a national anti-hunger organization
North Valley Community Foundation- to help the recent California fire victims
Wishing you and yours a warm and happy holiday!
