Mini Rechargeable Speakers

With all the iPods, iPads, and iPhones out there now (clearly I’m a big apple girl), it’s easy to have access to your music wherever you are.


The problem is there aren’t always plugs everywhere you’d like to jam out… the beach, the boat, the park, hikes, rooftop parties, bbqs.


That’s why these mini speakers from iHome are perfect.  The  iHM79 speakers are tiny, cute, rechargeable and ultra portable.  They have some other more masculine designs I love as well. 


$49.99 at iHome Audio

A Classy Quilt Option

Photo quilts are not only a great wedding gift but a great gift to give someone in your family. 

I made one for my mom and it’s been one of her favorite things I’ve given her.

This site is one of the best I’ve looked at.  It has a range of colors and styles so it works with any type of decor. 

Your moms and grandmas will love you.

If You Loose Your Beer – Just Page It

First of all, I am obsessed with the name of this company, Man Cave.

They have just about everything you need to outfit you or your man’s very own man cave.

Men tend to get left out when it comes to hostess gifts. Give a beer pager or another one of my favorite ideas for the site, their Meat of The Month Club.

RoastE Coffee Tours

Coffee of the month clubs are a great gift idea for weddings, hostess gifts, thank you gifts, graduation gifts … pretty much any occasion!

There are tons of different companies out there but I really love this particular company called RoastE.

RoastE has different coffee “tours,”.  So if you like African coffees you can pick the African Tour, or espresso tour, or organic tour.

Then what’s even smarter is that they let you order your coffee like you do your Netflix, order the next batch whenever you are ready, just like a queue.

I love the idea for weddings.  Two great wedding options, use them as favors for your guests, Chocomize will customize the bars with dates/photos/names.

Another great options is to give them to the wedding party.  Show them how well you know them and hand design a chocolate bar with all their favorite goodies.

Custom Etched Bottles of Wine

Etching Expressions will custom etch a bottle of wine for any occasion.

It’s a great wedding gift or congratulatory gift.  It’s personalized and something they will keep forever.

I especially love this magnum bottle of wine as a gift for newlyweds.  Perfect special, thoughtful present to help them get their wine cellar going.

Etching expressions also does less expensive but still great wine labels.

Prices vary

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

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!
