It’s Almost Christmas! A Guide

Actually, if I believed what marketers tell me, Christmas is coming tomorrow and I should already be gearing up for Easter!  (P.S. Christmas and Hanukkah are coming, we are equal-opportunity celebrators in this house.)

Anyway, as I was making pumpkin pudding tonight, I realized my pumpkin goodies are coming to an end and it’s time to focus on all things eggnog and gingerbread.

Here are some of the recipes I’m eyeing to try out this holiday season –

Here are some homemade gift ideas I have tried out –

PB cups (Google for the recipe).  You could use red and green (or white and blue) foil wrappers, add some sprinkles, the possibilities are endless.

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels.

Here are some not-so-homemade gift ideas I’m eyeing as well –

Whole Foods is selling a foodie gift basket that contains Sahale Snacks, the best nuts of all time.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM has some great gift offerings.  Like Frosty the Snow Plant.

Or the Poinsettia Popcorn Tin.

Or the Comfort and Joy Sweet Treats Basket.

Which 1-800-Flowers actually sent me to review.  The basket/wrapping were pretty and festive and the package came through the mail unscathed, not a single thing was crushed or broken!

The basket contains toffee, and chocolate, and a whole assortment of peppermint goodies.

Adam and I were so impressed that we think we are going to order a few as holiday gifts.

What’s on your radar this holiday season?
