zesty gift guide // snails and puppy dog tails


It’s that time of year ~ have you hit the shops yet to do your Christmas shopping? Made a list, checked it twice.

I’m at stage one ~ thinking about lists.

The smalls, however, are on the ball and have made their lists, in duplicate.

So in the lead-up to Christmas, I thought I might put together some zesty gift guides, and a bit of hint to what might be in Christmas stockings at our house on December 25. [Good thing none of the family really read here!]

Starting with the smalls. So if you are out shopping for boys aged 10 to 12, these are a few of the things that might be on their Christmas lists, too, this year.


5 finds to make life easier


Sometimes you see an item and think “wow, what a cool idea” and then realise, “hey, I could really use that”.

That was too long for a post headline but these ingenious products serve a clever dual purpose and I think could really use them in my day to day life.

  • This under the desk hammock comes in two positions ~ work or relax mode ~ and also becomes an handy spot to throw that paperwork you’re avoiding!
  • Chocolate pencils. Need I say more? One purpose is to make beautiful chocolate shavings, I think they are a handy way to hide your chocolate from your co-workers.
  • It appears I’ve found this one too late [out of stock everywhere] but ideal for working through a lunchbreak or when you forget to take a fork to work ~ the dine in utensil set. Also handy when you’ve lost your pen lid, again.
  • Shelving that waters your plants. Self-explanatory.
  • And a cloud-shaped rainbow tape dispenser ~ because you always need a little happy.

zesty finds // time for tea


If there is one thing that can polarise people, it’s a favourite beverage.

Coffee or tea? Milk or black? Flavoured or straight up?

I’m partial to a cup of green tea myself, more so in winter than the summer, although I drink coffee ~ black, no sugar ~ all year round.

But who doesn’t love a good tea party?
