Destination Dinners – Recipe Kits From Around The Globe

I recently read about this company and immediately fell in love with the idea.

Destination Dinners puts together meal kits from all over the world, Thailand, Lebanon, Jamica.. you name it.  They put together hard to find spices and all the dry ingredients to make your feast as easy as possible.

I especially love their Destination Passport idea, which sends you a new recipe kit each month.

Great housewarming, hostess or wedding gift for people who like to try new things!

From $25-$30

Spanx For Men

Spanx for Men are the new hottest thing in the world of male online shopping.  Retailers haven’t been able to keep them in stock!

It’s basically an under shirt but it also does a wonderful job of sucking in that beer and bacon belly.

Great thing to get Dad if you know he likes to look his best but is probably too embarrassed to go shopping for these himself.

Lots of Pics But No Gifts??

Make a canvas out of your favorite pics!

Bestcanvas.com can make any size you’d like.  It’s a perfect gift for a graduate moving into a new place.

Not only will it solve their bare white wall dilemas, but be sure to get a pic of family or friends and make them feel like they are at home no matter where they are!

Check Yourself Out From The Front AND The Back

Samsung’s Camera’s are pretty genius.

It has a front and back LCD screen so when you are taking those oh-so-flattering pictures of you solo or you and a friend, you can see if you are totally off base.

Be sure to watch our segment on WGN for a demonstration with the Dualview camera and the XShot.  Self portrait perfection!

Give Your Grad Some University Gear

I am VERY impressed with Victoria’s Secret Collegiate and MLB clothing lines.
One thing I always had me eye out for in Madison when I went to UW was cute and different Wisconsin gear for all the different sporting events. 
I think I wore the red T-Shirt I got at the bookstore every Football game for the first two seasons I was there.   I would have loved to have had something fun and unique like all the ones from Vickie’s.
And the Cubs Tee is one of the cutest I’ve seen yet!

Pop Art Toaster

How cute would it be to wake up to a heart on your toast every morning?

These Pop Art Toasters are so cleaver.  They can even personalize them for you!  Great corporate toy with your logo for the break room.

Check out the site to see all the options.  They have some funny sets too, like “Bite Me” and “I’m Hot”.

You Will Never Find A Cuter Paperweight

This is by far the cutest paperweight I’ve ever seen.

If you’re more into stripes, or blues, or argyle RedStamp has those too.  And they’ll personalize it to say whatever you want!

It’s great for a graduate going into the working world or as an end of the year gift for your favorite teacher.

RedStamp has tons of cute and modern stationary and office supplies.
