My Favorite Things....

I was inspired by Oprah's Favorite Things which I happened to watch last night on my DVR and man-o-man does she know how to sell an item! Ha, I swear at the end of the show I felt like I needed everything on her list! One thing that was kinda cool is one of her Favorite Things happened to be the big Christmas gift Matt and I just bought on Sunday! If you know me then you know we go OVERBOARD on gifts so this year we decided to pick one gift for the both of us and since we love coffee.......
 We got this bad boy at Sur La Table and to say we are excited is an understatement! It is really SO neat to be able to make espresso, Latte and cappuccino from home! Now we have a whole little coffee set up in our kitchen!
 Here we are testing it out.....SO neat! You can control the foam level, there are 20 types of espresso each with unique flavors to pick from and it is very easy to use! The only downside is you can only get the Nespresso pods on Nespresso.com and it is so "exclusive" you can't even buy them without your units serial number!

So now I thought I would share with you all some of MY Favorite Things!!! These are all things I have gifted in the past or might be gifting this year! Maybe you will find something on this list that you can give this year!!!!

Kids!
* For the baby, toddler or child in your life you can NOT go wrong with these Scentsy Buddies! Not only do these have a scent pack in them but they are machine washable! These come in all types of fun animals to pick from..... You can get yours HERE!

Sister, Sister-in-law, Mom or any woman in your life!
* Pottery Barn has the best cosmetic totes, I love mine and these are the perfect gift............
You can check out the whole line HERE!

* Sur La Table Bakers! I LOVE these and I gift them for weddings and both my Mom and Mother-in-Law have also received these from me in the past! I use mine several times each week!!! You can check them out HERE!

* Also from Sur La Table I love this donut pan! This pan plus a Barefoot Contessa Donut mix makes the perfect gift!!! You can check it out HERE!

* Also things I love to give to my female recipients is JCrew jewelry or a nice infinity scarf from JCrew or the Limited. I also love giving cookbooks and wrapping a beautiful hand towel or spatula with the cookbook! Don't forget to write a little something in the first page of the cookbook for a personal touch!

Men!!
* Brew at Home! What a fun original gift from my favorite website Red Envelope. I have given this to my Brother-in-law in the past.........Find it HERE!

* Mens Monogrammed Slippers also from Red Envelope....Matt loves his and this is a no fail gift that any man in your life would love! You can see them HERE!

* Lastly my favorite gift I have given Matt is these cuff links. These cuff links have been made with actual salvaged seats from your favorite MLB stadium! Of course Matt's came from St. Louis but this gift is...well, perfect! They even come with your own certificate of authenticity....... You can get yours HERE!
SO friends, those are just a few of my favorite gifts to give and trust me I could go on and on but my house is screaming out for me to clean it! So I better get on it so Matt and I can enjoy our Thanksgiving holiday!
If you are traveling today I hope you have safe travels!!!!!
