Valentine’s Day Gifts for your hard to shop for man

Every single holiday it’s the same struggle. My husband doesn’t really want anything in particular. And if he does, then he buys it for himself. So I end up searching for unique, sometimes quirky or unusual, often practical gift ideas. Here are some gift ideas for sweetie this Valentine’s Day.

Stuffed And Dipped Strawberries

You read that right – they are STUFFED and DIPPED. Stuffed with peanut butter or banana and hand dipped in chocolate – these are heavenly! You can even order waaay in advance (for Valentine’s Day or any holiday), to make gift giving easy breezy.

Hard Working Man’s Hygiene Kit

For the “Guy’s guy” who still appreciates a bit of pampering. It’s manly, rustic, and practical. This kit is made of all natural ingredients in the USA. Gotta love that!

Do Anything Smart Button

Wait, what? You could use this slightly magical, satisfyingly squishy silicone button to turn the music down or the lights off. But that barely scratches the surface of its possibilities. Need to find your phone, and fast? Press the button. Call a cab while stuffing your suitcase? Press the button. Sprinkle your parched garden from work? Press the button.

Heated Razor

Just imagine the luxury! The GilletteLabs Heated Razor delivers the comfort of a hot towel with every stroke. Featuring a stainless steel warming bar that distributes heat quickly and evenly maintains soothing warmth throughout the shave. Turn your shave into an experience for your senses.


Happy Socks – Dog Gift Box

How great are these!! If you’re shopping for a man with a great sense of humor, he will love these. They have so many patterns to choose from (Rolling Stones, Patterns, Halloween prints, Pizza, Dots, etc.) it’s almost endless. So help him step up (see what I did there) his sock game, and maybe grab some for the rest of the family too – they have women’s and kids socks too.

The Art of Shaving – Lavender Mid-Size Kit

“The 4 Elements of the perfect shave” in travel friendly sizes. These hand crafted products made from essential oils and high quality botanicals are sure to please.

Oktoberfest Ale Beer Brewing Kit

A gallon of homebrewed Ale makes for a very hoppy holiday!

Polarized Wood Sunglasses

Hand crafted, eco-friendly, polarized….and they float!

Italian Wine Gift Set

This trio includes a light and crisp Pinot Grigio from Veneto, a juicy red from Tuscany and a spicy Nero d’Avola from Sicily. Plenty of other regions and varietals are also available to suite every palette!

Victrola Bluetooth Suitcase Record Player

Ahh, the gift of nostalgia (with a techie twist)! This turntable is so fun and kind of cute too (it comes in so many colors / patterns from camo to american flag to tie dye). Any music lover would appreciate this. Plus, it has bluetooth and connects to your phone.

Duke Cannon Ice Cold Beer Shower Sack and Gift Set

He deserves to be pampered too – but in, like, a manly way! Duke Cannon’s Cold Ass Beer Shower Sack makes a nearly perfect gift. A custom burlap sack packed with Duke Cannon’s grooming essentials, it will last longer than that six-pack. A Portion of Proceeds Benefits U.S. Veterans. Cruelty Free. Made in the USA

YETI Rambler Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Beer/Soda Can Holder

YETI products are well known for their high quality stainless steel drinkware. These can holders are great – we have a few that we use often at home or at the pool, beach, and on the boat. They are dishwasher safe, and work beautifully. Anything “YETI” would make a great gift!

Sweet Valentine Cookie Bouquet

Each of the Valentine’s sugar cookies are freshly baked and decorated by hand to create a tasty and beautiful gift.


Beats EP On-Ear Headphones 

These are great quality headphones at a nice price (under $70!!!). Can’t beat Beats for the sound quality and looks!

Magnetic Armband

With 25 powerful magnets and stretchable material to hold small fasteners and tools on your forearm or bicep, this is the perfect gift for men, fathers, husbands and craftsmen.

Wooden Five-Layer Stadium Wall Art

How cool is this layered wooden stadium? What a fun gift for the man cave collector, NFL superfan, or diehard sports enthusiast. Made right here in the US of A ❤

UGG Tasman Slipper

Even the most rugged manly-man likes cozy tootsies, amirite? Who wouldn’t love a pair of luxurious UGG slippers? They even have a super durable sole so they can be worn inside or outside. Perfection.

Oh! Nuts Chocolate Covered Pretzels Gift Basket

Surprise someone you love with this elegant gift box brimming with yummy snacks. Artisans hand-dip freshly baked pretzel twists in real milk and dark chocolate. These treats are crafted in small batches, and no two are exactly alike!

Bose Frames – Audio Sunglasses with Open Ear Headphones, with Bluetooth Connectivity

Has he been exceptionally good this year? 🙂 These sunglasses are everything. They play music, with nothing in or on your ear, and people around you can’t hear it. It’s so amazing…watch their video to learn more because I can’t properly express how cool they are!

Apple – AirPods with Wireless Charging Case

These can go right on my list too! The new AirPods – complete with Wireless Charging Case – combine the intelligent design with breakthrough technology and crystal clear sound. Powered by the new Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods now feature hands-free access to Siri using just your voice. And up to 3 hours of talk time on a single charge.

Vetelli Hanging Toiletry Bag for Men

For the man who travels often – let him tote his toiletries like a civilized person, instead of throwing everything into a plastic baggy. This would pair nicely with the beard kit, or any luxury grooming products.

Wireless Qi-Certified Fast Charger with Mug Warmer / Cooler

Designed in Detroit for people who want to shake up the industry. The Nomodo Trio quickly charges your wireless capable device utilizing Qi Fast Charging technology. Keep coffee hot the heated plate that was designed to keep his mug as toasty as it was when he brewed it. Or – keep it chill! The cooling plate will keep those cans and cold brews chilled, so they’ll always quench his thirst.

Legendary Whitetails Berber Lined Hooded Flannel

If this doesn’t scream cozy bonfire date night, then I don’t know what does. Lined with a thick super soft berber and insulated with poly-fill for those times when a jacket is too much.

Enjoy these gift ideas for the special guy in your life!

Fun and Unique Subscription Boxes Available on Amazon

A small package with my name on it arrived at my house one day. It turned out to be the cutest pair of no-show socks, and the first of many surprise sock deliveries!

My husband said “I know how much you like socks (which is true!) so I signed you up for a Sock Fancy subscription through Amazon. Each month you will get a new pair.”.

I thought that was so sweet. I also thought that it was interesting that Amazon had a sock subscription option that I never heard of.


Upon further investigation, I found a bunch of fun subscription ideas that I had no clue existed, that would make great gifts for a loved one or even yourself.

Amazon Subscription Boxes offer a wide range of subscriptions, including beauty boxes, snack boxes, pet boxes, and lifestyle boxes, among many others!

And when you subscribe through Amazon, you can manage all of your your billing and shipping options – for all of your subscription boxes – in one place. Each subscription box is also backed by Amazon’s A to Z guarantee so you can subscribe with confidence, and cancel at any time.

Here are some of the ones that really caught my attention:

Easy Plant-Based Holiday Side Dishes

Recently I’ve started to embrace more plant-based meal options. I’m not a full blown vegetarian (not even close), and I don’t strictly follow a plant-based or whole food diet, but I’m learning more and more about the health benefits of limiting animal products and refined or processed foods and I’m taking baby steps toward a healthier way of life.

The definition of “Plant-Based” can vary. For me, if a dish primarily contains vegetables, fruit, whole grains, or beans, I would consider it plant-based. I’m ok with some animal products. I love eggs and dairy, and may include those in plant-based options. The idea here is healthier choices, mostly from ingredients derived from plants, and limiting animal products, processed foods, and refined sugars.


I’m also not a doctor – however it’s pretty widely known and proven that a plant-based diet is a really healthy lifestyle choice. It can reduce risk of cancer, heart disease, obesity, and even mental decline such as alzheimers. The only negative, in my opinion, is finding creative and delicious meals around this concept.

In addition to the many, and obvious, health benefits, it’s typically healthier for our increasingly delicate planet.

With the holidays coming up, I wanted to compile a round up of Vegetarian and Plant Based side dish recipes, that are easy enough for a “regular” person, like myself, to pull off. I’m not a cook, and I don’t really even like cooking that much, so I always look for minimal ingredients, and equally minimal required effort. These are recipes that I am willing and able to assemble (I use the term “cook” loosely), and my entire family would eat!

1. Simple Vegan Stuffing


2. Easy Vegan Green Bean Casserole

Photos and Recipe: The Busy Baker

3. Hasselback Butternut Squash Roasted Side Dish

8. Crispy Roasted Cabbage Steaks

Recipe: Dinner Then Dessert

9. 5 Ingredient Slow Cooker Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Recipe: Real Food Whole Life

Remember – If you have an Instant Pot, you can use it as a Slow Cooker too. If you prefer a dedicated appliance for Slow Cooking (so you can multi-task and cook in both) – here is a fantastic Slow Cooker I recommend.

10. Grilled Polenta with Fresh Tomato Relish

Recipe: Alison’s Allspice

The Best Happy, Feel Good, Eco-Friendly, Give Back Gifts on Amazon

Time for a feel-good shopping list! We all spend tons of time searching for the perfect gifts for friends, colleagues, and loved ones. If you are like me, you occasionally come across a company that gives back, which makes you feel like you are doing a little itty bitty good in the world when you make a purchase.

I started thinking more about this, and I’m quite sure the recipients of my gifts would LOVE to know that they contributed, in some way, to cleaning the ocean, planting trees, supporting our Military, helping puppies, and funding medical research for the most cruel diseases.

I’m not aware of a “roundup” of gift ideas that actually give back, so I started searching and compiling my own. Here are 12 ideas I found on Amazon (because….Amazon), that all donate to wonderful causes. This post makes me so happy! It seems impossible to heal our planet because we have damaged it so far beyond comprehension. One person alone is helpless, but when these companies step up they can move mountains (and clean oceans, and provide clean drinking water to those desperately in need).

So, this season of giving, if you are thinking about how you can make a small impact, that can potentially add up to a significant contribution, you may consider some of these gifts, or browsing these companies. It’s pretty exciting to learn about what they are doing. My heart is so happy just knowing there is kindness and compassion out there in our world ❤

Each bracelet funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean.

Our new goal is to save 50 million by 2025 (and we’re on track already!). To put our money where our mouth is, each year 20% of our profit goes to charities fighting alongside us to protect the planet. Join the revolution and #giveupthebottle

Gifts that help spread kindness in the world ❤

Here’s $100 – What would you buy yourself?

Suppose you received an anonymous gift of $100 to spend on yourself. What would you buy? Before you say “I would put it toward a bill” or “I would buy so and so a gift” let’s put a few simple rules around this scenario.

  1. You have to spend it on something frivolous, tangible, or otherwise considered a splurge.
  2. You have to spend it on yourself.
  3. You can’t save it, pay a bill with it, but groceries etc.

I have no good answer to this question. It’s not soo much money that you can really go crazy. On the other hand it’s enough money that most of us would put some legitimate thought into a purchasing decision. It’s easier to figure out how to spend $25. Or $500.

So when someone asks you “What do you want for your Birthday / Christmas / Hanukkah / Whatever?” – what do YOU tell them? I need ideas! I suppose Rothys gift cards would always be welcomed. I still have my eye on those camo sneakers! ❤ ❤ ❤

Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Are you looking for inspiration for your Thanksgiving table setting?

I have found so many beautiful place settings that will give you great ideas for setting your own. These can work for Christmas tablescapes too!

Thanksgiving is the coziest.

Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday. It fills all my senses with joy and coziness, gratitude and comfort. The food is obviously uh-maze-ing, but everything about the day gives me the warm and fuzzies. It’s like everybody stops, just for a bit, to be together and present. Everything is on hold, for the most part, and we are all reminded of what’s important in life.

I’ll pause to recognize those who don’t get a “break” on the day of thanks – the first responders, military personnel, Doctors, Nurses, and so many others. Thank you for working so hard, thank you for being fearless, and thank you for sacrificing family time so others can be cared for. ❤

To really gear up for the holiday season, I have been researching holiday decor, recipes, new traditions, etc. I have seen so many stunning tablescapes that run the gamut of simple and rustic, to elaborate and luxurious. These are so pretty, and I never get sick of admiring them all year round.

Here is a round up of some of my absolute favorites. I have also included my own idea at the end (shopping list included) for a totally simple and beautiful setting that I’m planning to do! Want to skip ahead? Check it out here.

Driven by Decor

For many years my kids and I would walk around the neighborhood in search of fallen pine needles, pine cones, acorns, beautiful colored leaves, etc. Nature always made the most welcoming tablescape, and I try to find “real” or preserved greenery whenever possible.

My easy tablescape (with shopping list):

Below is my current plan for this year – it’s a work in progress still. Something about the black and white buffalo check with pops of green and natural elements is so classic and pretty. The little bit of gold on the votive holders adds just the right amount of sparkle too. Do you agree? Those pumpkin shaped glasses are on clearance, so if you like them hurry hurry and grab some for your table! The shopping list is below if you are interested in any of these ideas for yourself (this post contains affiliate links – As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases).

  1. Buffalo Harvest Pumpkin Dinnerware
  2. Round Rattan Chargers Set of 4
  3. Artificial Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Leaves Garland 6 Feet
  4. Dried Natural Hanging Pine Cone Strings
  5. Harvest Pumpkin Shaped Glassware (Currently on clearance!)
  6. 12ct glass votive holders Gold Dipped

A simple linen napkin (like this, or this) will add a little texture without distracting from the theme. I’m thinking this wooden napkin ring would tie in beautifully with the pine cones and chargers.

I hope these lovely tables inspire your holiday dinner. Remember that your loved ones are always the centerpiece, so even if you are eating off of paper plates with plastic utensils (no judgement here!), it’s still wonderful to be together. Happy Thanksgiving!

Sephora Gifts for Every Budget

It’s the most beautiful time of the year, and Sephora has tons of gift ideas in all shapes and sizes, and within every budget. I’ve found the best of the best in each price range for you below:

First things first – before we jump in – we have important business to attend to! Do you have a Rakuten (formerly ebates) account? If you do – fantastic! Don’t forget to use it while you shop. If you don’t – stop everything and sign up (for Free) before you do anything else!

The other thing I love about Rakuten is that you can add the “cash back” button to your Google Chrome browser, and it gives you a little reminder when you visit a site that qualifies for rewards.

OK, now on to Sephora…

Beautiful and Easy Christmas Decor

Looking for easy holiday decor to rev up the holiday season? I don’t know about you, but the holidays always seem to sneak up on me. Not like “oh hey, Christmas is 3 weeks away”, but more like “whoa Christmas is in 4 days!!”.

This year I’m more prepared than ever, and I’ve started gathering my decor ideas. Ok, I haven’t bought much yet, but I have a pretty solid shopping list started. In the next few days my cart will be finalized and the season of cheer will officially commence (thank you Amazon 2-day shipping and Target ship to store!).

Below I’ve listed some fun finds that will effortlessly inject some festive cheer into your home AND my favorite SUPER SIMPLE tree decorating hack.

(for your convenience this post contains affiliate links – As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases )

  1. 24″ Burlap Wrapped Flocked Tree
  2. Frosty Pinecone Wreath
  3. Felted Gnome Decor
  4. Christmas Tree, Metal Tin Sign
  5. 9 Foot Frosted Berry Garland with 100 Clear Lights
  6. Holiday Figurine Decorative Christmas Deer Tabletop Statue
  7. 2 Piece Wood Lantern Set
  8. Gold Glittered & Faux Fur Nutcracker
  9. Winter Wonderland Wall Decor
  10. Glass Cloche Winter Scene LED Light Up Decor Set Of 2
  11. Peeking Reindeer Doormat
  12. Paper Houses on “Merry Christmas” Wood Base
  13. Black and White Chalkboard Style Snow and Pine “Joy” Christmas Banner
  14. Milk and Cookies Served Nightly – 5 x 10 inch Hanging Christmas Signs
  15. Willow Tree Nativity, sculpted hand-painted nativity figures

Well… we haven’t decided on how we will decorate the tree(s) this year. It’s ok to have more than one, right?? The more the merrier I suppose (see what I did there?). I would love to have one “traditional” tree, with all the sentimental ornaments we have amassed over the years, as well as a stylized “fancy tree”.

Target has these great tree decorating kits to take out the guesswork and have your tree looking like you had a professional decorator orchestrate every sparkly detail!

The kits vary in size depending on your needs, and there are several styles to choose from from funky colorful, to traditional farmhouse.

  • Ornament Kit: 85 ornaments to fill a 7 ft. tree
  • Top to Bottom Kit: 90 pieces including ornaments, a topper, and skirt (it’s like a bed in a bag for your Christmas tree!)

I’m loving the Winter Blush Collection! It’s so sparkly and fun, but also mostly neutral.

What would a Christmas post be without beautiful gift wrap inspo? I just wanted to share a few pretty ideas I found this year:

RUSPEPA Christmas Gift Wrapping Paper – $2.00 coupon on some styles!

What’s your favorite go-to decor? Do you like to decorate the same way every year, or do you change it up each season? Maybe a bit of both?
