zesty gift guide // for the mister


The Mister and I don’t really go all out on the gift front most years, usually because we spoil ourselves too much through the year [like new cameras, shoes, wine, gadgets ~ you get the picture].

So we usually decide we need “x” and buy that for Christmas and follow it up with a CD or something similarly small to unwrap on the day.

But this isn’t the real world so if I could/would buy anything for the Mr under the tree this year, it might be among these zesty gifts.

Or who I am kidding, maybe I wouldn’t mind a couple of these myself.

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.
