Getting To Know You 03.03.2019


What is the worst gift you’ve ever received?

My answer: An empty box!



Last Minute Stocking Stuffers and Small Gifts


Hello and welcome to my final gift guide of 2018! These are just a few (more) of my favourite things!


A set of ornately beaded coasters 

Socks are a great practical gift and stocking stuffer. The older I get, the more I appreciate gift like this. (Visit item by clicking on photo)


A pack of these stick-on allergy labels could save a life! Made to be used on food containers, paperwork, etc.

If you’re traveling, or are sending your kid to school – this under the shirt invisible pocket belt is a wise decision. (Yes, they have all black too) Personally, I hate ‘fanny packs’ but I always have a good use for something that fits well under my clothes where I can stash emergency money or card. 😉 (can visit item by clicking on photo)

Just for those of us that live places on the globe that have to wait weeks for shipping sometimes.

So here we are; Some truly lust-worthy holiday gifts from reliable suppliers to fit every need on your list!:

My Souvenir From the USA


So, a girlfriend of mine goes on holiday to the USA. When we all get together to hear about her trip, this is what she gives us.


This livened up the conversation a bit, as you might well imagine. We all had a good giggle.

I did not even know this was a thing.
