Gift guide: coffee lovers delight!!

Of course my first collection is all about coffee! Surprised?

1. Keurig. I couldn’t survive without my Keurig. #firstworldproblems In all seriousness, a Keurig is a must have in all coffee lover’s kitchens. Yes, I still have a coffee pot. But, while your coffee is brewing you can whip up a quick cup of joe. Oh, its afternoon? You don’t want a whole pot of coffee? No problem for the Keurig! I gave one to my Grandma last year, she was pretty skeptical at first, but has recently told me how much she loves it!!

2. Camera lens coffee mug How fun is this mug? The perfect gift for the photographer/coffee lover in your life!! This mug is on MY wishlist!

3. Dotted Coffee Mugs from World Market. I love these mugs. They would not only make a great Christmas gift. But also a great gift for a new parent. Cause what new parent doesn’t survive on coffee (and the pastel colors just scream, welcome to the world of parenting)!!

4. Personalized Spoons from Jessica N Designs. I’m obsessed with this website. I want all the spoons. I bought the “i heart coffee & blogs” spoon, cause, duh. But the holiday ones are super cute too. Would be a fun hostess gift. Teacher gift. I’d love to get some to put on my holiday table this year! So very very fun! ***included in giveaway this week***

5. Espresso Maker from Hamilton Beach. I recently got this espresso maker to try out and see what I think of it. Well, it’s safe to say we love it. My husband absolutely loves using this in the mornings. He can make a mean latte for me too!! ***included in giveaway this week***


Gift guide: cookbooks, baking cocoa, straws and cupcake liners!

Is there a baker in your life? Or maybe you love to bake yourself? This group of gifts is for YOU!!

1. Rodelle Baking Cocoa. Hands down you guys, this is the best cocoa on the market, that’s also reasonably priced. Most people think of Rodelle as vanilla makers…but their Cocoa is simply amazing. As you fill a gift basket for that special baker in your life, be sure to include some quality ingredients too, to get them started in the kitchen! ***included in giveaway this week***

2. Cooking with Pumpkin by Averie Sunshine. I love this cookbook! I’m a bit pumpkin obsessed, so when one of my favorite bloggers put out a cookbook of ALL pumpkin, you can be sure I picked up a copy! ***included in giveaway this week***

3. Smart Cookie Cookbook Take those store bought cookies and make something amazing!! Give this to the cookie lover in your life!

4. Sweets and Treats Boutique: Cupcake Liners and Paper Straws. I’m often asked where do I purchase my cupcake liners and paper straws. Sweets and Treats Boutique has  been my go-to store for a couple years now. I love their cupcake liners. If you’re tired of having to double line a cupcake because you can’t see the cute print after baking, purchase some of these!! Only one liner needed, and you’ll LOVE them!!!

Gift guide: stoneware, cookbooks, cake plate, donut pan

 This collection is a fun one. Years ago I used to be a Pampered Chef consultant, so the pizza stone is a must have (I have two of them that have lasted me over 10 years now)! And look at the rest of the fun goodies in this collection!

1. Pampered Chef– large round stone.  You guys. This is what I use to bake ALL of my cookies. And cookie cakes. And pizza of course. But mainly cookies! Makes a great gift too! **Pampered Chef product included in giveaway this week**

2. Dessert Mashups Cookbook My good friend Dorothy from Crazy for Crust put out this awesome cookbook this year. I love everything in it. But it’s no surprise since I love her blog too!

3. The Red Velvet Lover’s Cookbook Are you a lover of red velvet? Or do you know someone who can’t get enough of it? Check out this awesome cookbook from a very talented blogger friend!! ***included in giveaway this week***

4. Still not sure what to get that baker in your life? Or looking for something fun for yourself? Cake Stand are so fun to collect. I happen to have half a dozen, and this one is on my own wishlist. It’s so pretty!!

5. Donut Pans I’ve got a number of baked donut recipes on my blog, and I love having a couple of these donut pans in my cabinet!! Forget picking up donuts at the store when you make them even fresher at home!!!

gift guide: Ninja slow cooker, cookbook, grater and zester, salt and Pepper

I love using my Slow Cooker, and I use mine all year long! Why not give the gift of stress free dinner to a family member or friend this year? Or how about asking for it for yourself? The above collection is a great start…just need the ingredients for the meal!

    I have those Pampered Chef pizza stones too and I love them! I leave on in the oven all the time and I especially do this time of year when cooking pies – it really gets the bottom crust done so it isn’t soggy:) Definitely going to try that Rodelle Cocoa, sounds awesome and everything is between with chocolate, thanks for the tip on a great one!

  8. I definitely have some of these on my list. So many cookbooks this year that I would like.

  9. Perfect timing! I was just thinking about gifts and this gave me some really good ideas. As much as I love store bought gifts, there is something so special about hand made gifts and I love that you included them on the list. Awesome stuff!
