The holidays are almost here! We hope you are as excited as we are, however, we all know
that with the holidays there is a lot of shopping to do for our family, friends, and extended community. Brainstorming for gift ideas can be difficult!
In the 1990's Oprah Winfrey began "Oprah's Favorite Things" -- yes, a spin-off of the Sound of Music song, "My Favorite Things" ♫. Since then, every year Oprah shares a list of products with her audience that she feels would make a great gift.
This year, we have asked our wonderful team for some of their favorite items. We hope you will become re-inspired with gift ideas for your loved ones!
Amazon's Echo Dot with Smart Plug
Of course, as a musician, I love being able to request any song or genre of music to play automatically. I have also created multiple playlists which can be retrieved by voice commands. In addition to music, I've discovered that Alexa can make phone calls, share the latest news, tell me a joke, access multiple games (including Jeopardy, Price is Right, Trivia, and Would You Rather and more!)
Capri Blue Volcano Candle
Simple Modern Tumbler
This Simple Modern 22oz Slim Cruiser Tumbler has become my favorite buy of the year. I went online and they have a variety of colors and designs, so I had many options to choose from, and it also comes with two straws and two lids: one for cool liquids and one for hot.
This is a perfect gift for anyone who loves a cup of coffee for the road, whether it be on the way to school, work, or a long road trip! I would gift this to my friends or if I had kids and make it a stocking stuffer. I use it every morning, receive numerous compliments, and intend on buying more for my friends and family." - Adelaide
Essential Oil Diffuser
Black Character Shoes
Breville Barista Express Espresso Maker
You can find Ramiro's favorite model # BES870XL on Amazon.
Presto 6 or 12 Cup Coffee Percolator
We were frustrated and thought, if you can now buy metal water bottles, why can't we find an all-metal coffee maker? Then we remembered those coffee percolators from back in the 50's and 60's and wondered if those were still around? And do they still make them metal? And the answer is YES! And they are all metal! And the coffee they make is even better than that from a Mr. Coffee!
Amazon sells a Presto Coffee Percolator in both 6 cup and 12 cup sizes, and you just
plug them in after adding the ground coffee and water, and you have delicious coffee
made without plastic! AND - Bonus - the percolator is a lovely serving piece to pour
your coffee directly from if you want to serve on the table (you just unplug the cord
from the unit, very simple!) We have found that the 6 – cup size is enough for us!" - Kim
This is the most “Wonderful Time of the Year,” so whether you need inspiration or a
helping hand, we hope our team has given you some unique gift ideas for the holiday
Stay Warm and Happy Shopping!
