Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

In my family everyone of all ages gets a stocking. We open them in front of a roaring fire at my mum's beautiful Connecticut home Christmas morning. All of my shopping is done, but here are some items I might buy next year!

LAFCO makes the most exquisite to-die-for candles and now they make soap. For the winter months how about Marseilles Fig or Rosemary Eucalyptus?

For the wine enthusiast a CORKCICLE is a must. Pop it in the freezer and then in to a bottle of white wine to keep it cold. Genius. They come in classic cork or fun festive colors. 

I am sure most of you already own a set of BANAGRAMS. If you don't you need to pick one up. Stat. Perfect to play over the holidays or pack for your weekend at the ski house. 

Who doesn't need some sparkle during the holidays? I love this polish from ESSIE.

At Christmas Dinner we always have holiday poppers. I love these stylish ones that include bubbles, makeup and a cocktail ring. So festive! Order them HERE.  

For the dog lover (my Jack Russell is addicted) include a new tennis ball (or two...)

One of my best friends turned me on to NEUTROGENA BODY OIL and now I would never use any other moisturizer.

A great read - BLOOD BONES AND BUTTER is a favorite of mine and is now being made in to a movie staring GP.

Or a subscription to a magazine. A few I like to give

Happy holidays!
