Pink Lady Gift Guide Holiday 2012

For the Kids
I loved my star making machine when I was little and while looking for one for a family I found that they have come a long way. I found this great Star Projector and think this would be fun for the whole family. It is a wonderful family gift and can be given to children of all ages and to Boys or Girls. Another shout out to Green Toys still the best toys around non-toxic and just fun. 

Gimmy Some Beekman This Year
I love the Beekman 1802 website and all the lovely food, skin care and Homegoods they offer. Standouts are the Creamed Honey, Goat Soaps, Stick of Butter Lotion Sticks, Tis the Season Bunbles and a few more products I will mention below.

For your Hippie or Nouveau-Yuppie Gardner Friends
I have some friends that have gotten into gardening in a huge way over the last couple of years and this is a wonderful Hobby that I might have to try this spring. I found some great things to give to my friends on the Beekman 1802 site this year that they will just love like their Heirloom Seeds packs, Seed Pot Maker, Bug Stick and Garden Cruuk.

Gift Basket Bonanza
Giving a gift to a family or someone that has everything maybe even a Home Sick East Coaster then Zabars is your place to shop for the season. Zabars is a very old wonderful Deli in New York that is Internationally known and loved for their Fish counter to their Cheese Selection. Check out their Gift Baskets, Crates and other wonderful gifts.

Onion Goggles
For the home chef in your life these are the best. I don't know how many times I have thought while chopping onions that if I was in a rush I know I would fumble and chop my finger off if I was not wearing these. The Goggles come in many different colors as well. 
The Fountain of Youth Machine
You have read my Secret Weapon Post so you know this it is in facial and age defying care. The Clairsonic Facial brush is worth every penny to get great ageless skin. They come in a couple of sizes for face and body or travel and lots of colors.

The best Electric Kettle on Earth
This kettle has different settings for different styles of tea. I want one sooooo bad. A great gift for a tea lover or a Kitchen Gadget Junky in you life.

Tea For All
Tea is a great gift to get friends and family started on the right foot for the new year. Coffee is great but tea is better for sure. Tea Forte has great selection of types of tea. organic, rare, green, white, black and fun seasonal blends. Other great brands Mighty Leaf and Taylor's of Harrogate and of course Peets.

Now this is a great gift for the men in your life. Jeans are a no brainer for Men. You just have to know there waist and in-seem measurement and have an idea of body type. Men never buy new jeans unless forced. This is a great gift and Levis has some great styles out this year. Fancy brands that are well made and made of nice thick denim like Diesl and Lucky are great to.

Boring socks no more for your guy. Stance brand are well made and so fun. Also for more colder climates Wigwam are the best choice. Get your guy out of his basic black or white tube socks and get him some fun yet masculine socks this year.

A box of Chocolate
I am a fan of giving locally made goodies for the Holidays. This year I think Woodhouse in St. Helena need to be show cased. Not only locally made but delicious and absolutely beautiful.

Want to give Jewelry and the "Blue Box" is not your style then James Avery and Sundance Catalog may be up your alley. I have been a customer of James Avery for as long as I can remember. All made in Texas with a wonderful selection of Jewelry for everyone on your list. Known for their charms and charm bracelets and excellent craftsmanship. Sundance is Robert Redford's catalog store with locally made Artisan made jewelry with a more natural design aesthetic have some wonderful options for that special person. Alex and Ani is a very hot jewelry line as well that offer many options at affordable prices. 

The "IT" Book
I am big fan of the Blog Young House Love and am so proud of everything they do for the DIY world and even more pleased that they put out there own book. The book is awesome. I gave it to my best friend right after I found out that they sold their condo and bought a new home. I knew she would get a lot out it and would make a lovely decorative coffee table book to.

The Wine People
Yep, how could I make a gift guide without a wine gift option. Everyone that knows me well knows I am Rose' Sparking Wine Slut! Yep, I said it Slut. I LOVE Rose' Sparkling Wine. My very good friend Laurence had bottles and bottles of MUMM's Rose' at her 40th Birthday and we where both in pure heaven. This year I have a new favorite and one that should be bought for any Wine-Snob on your list. Pommery Brut Rose is my number one pick! I just love it! Wish I could afford to buy it enough to have it all the time.
