Happy holidays! If you are in a quandary over what gifts to give (or ask for) this holiday season, I may just have some ideas that will inspire you. Some are food related and some aren’t, but each gift is something I think the recipient will use and truly appreciate. Our family actually uses each and every gift recommendation below!

I must admit I am a little obsessed with glassware. And Anthropologie has the best selection of unique and gorgeous stemware, tumblers and juice glasses I have ever seen. Take a look, they have something to fit every budget and style preference from elegant to sweet to monogrammed!

The Amazon Echo!

This is the coolest gift! We use our Amazon Echo every single day. Tell the echo what music to play, or don’t because she can read your mind and will select music you love all on her own! You can also tell her what time to wake you up, ask her what time it is, how long the drive to work will take, what the weather forecast is like, or even have her remind you of what’s on your ‘to-do list’. She’s like a personal assistant…a really small, smart personal assistant that knows your taste in music.

The Fitbit! 

This is my husband’s wrist, and that is his Fitbit, he loves it! Fitbit is a physical activity tracker designed to help you become more active, eat a more well-rounded diet, sleep better and ultimately, turn you into a healthier person. I am sure you have already heard the raves, but it’s truly an amazing tool! Small, sleek and available in different colors and styles for men and women, it makes a great gift for anyone trying to improve their health and fitness.
