If it's not soft, cute, or smells good I don't want it! Here are some of my top picks for excellent holiday presents this season. Look out for some local vendors!
I can't speak to being soft or smelling good, but we'll definitely take cute pictures at any shoot! Get in touch to snag a gorgeous gift certificate, wrapped and ready to place under the tree. That special teen or tween in your life will have a big surprise in opening this goodie and then get to spend the rest of the holidays planning what to wear on their big day. What a special treat!
They would tear this to shreds the moment I got up to get myself another cup of tea. But if you don't have that problem, go make someone in your life feel incredible with this. It comes in a bunch of colors.
The Farmer's Wife is based in Yuba City but the Raley's on Sunol sometimes carries their products. If you buy one as a present, you'll have to get another one for yourself. It's not a big tub, but a little goes a long way.
What I impressed me was how MINTY the chocolate mint cookies were. It wasn't subtle. And I really liked it.
My husband took one look at the greenish cookies and said, "I bet those are packed with food coloring" and you know what? They aren't! The green color comes from SPINACH. Never would have guessed.
Go support Dan at his storefront in Livermore or at the farmer's market. Comfort food at it's finest.
Local favorite, Jam Jar Posies makes floral displays that have that effortless airy look. She mixes fussy with wild; her bouquets are delightful.
Again, something I can't have because the cats attack flowers in vases as if they were silent burglars, hanging out patiently in the middle of the table.
Not that I wouldn't love one of these. But I'd need to put a cage over it, or something.
It says it holds 5lbs of candy. It could probably hold a heck of a lot of surgical masks mixed with cute little hand sanitizers. Crazy what we scramble for these days...
