“You’d swear these trays were pricey pottery, but it turns out they’re made of melamine and totally terrific for dining on the patio.” – Oprah
“This very elegant serving set consists of 12 shot glasses and an ice bucket nestled in a solid oak paddle—a perfect excuse to throw a party.”
“Stedman thinks I’m a genius at building fires. My secret? These brilliant fire starters that sit on our hearth in their gorgeous rustic stoneware crock, which was hand-thrown in Vermont.”
d. Magnolia Olive and Trees
“Yes, I have olive trees in my bedroom. Everyone said they’d never make it, but I keep them turned to the light and they get bigger every day. A tree is a forever gift. It’s sunshine and earth and water, and it just grows better with time.”
“Everybody loves the smell of clean. How they got it in a bottle, I’ll never know. The linen scent of this shower gel, hand soap, and lotion developed by Gloria Williams, a.k.a. the Footnanny, reminds me of slipping between freshly laundered sheets.”
f. Gratitude Glass Jar
“I’m grateful somebody came up with the Gratitude Glass Jar. It includes 365 cards so your family can take turns jotting down notes about things they truly appreciate. At the end of the year, everyone can gather for a celebration of whatever is on those cards.”
“Actually, that’s a kit that turns your outdoor grill into a gourmet pizza oven. It’s also perfetto for the foodie in your life.”
“We used one of these vintage-inspired glazed-stoneware mugs on our February cover, and it felt like it was custom-made for my hand.”
“If any kids you know are planning to leave cookies for Santa, I promise he and the reindeer will be thrilled to nibble on this delicious assortment of nutty chocolate chip, white chocolate candy cane pretzel, and gingerbread oatmeal raisin.”
b. Centerville Pie Company – Two Signature Chicken Pies
“I found this chicken pie on Cape Cod years ago, and it’s still the closest to homemade I’ve ever tasted. The hand-crimped crust is flaky, the filling is jam-packed with hand-pulled meat, and the people who make them are clearly doing so with love.”
“I thought the Galápagos were just islands in the Pacific, but these Galapagos turtles—made with pistachios, pecans, macadamia nuts, walnuts, vanilla caramel, and dark and milk chocolate—must come straight from the Chocolate Factory!”
“The gingham biscuit tin is made of recycled metal, and the toy of recycled yarn. But suppose for a moment that your dog doesn’t care about that. How’s this: The box is filled with country bacon treats, and the rope toy is a blast.”
“Spoiler alert, Beyoncé: Your present’s been selected. These seven hot sauces range from mild to uh-oh, so naturally they’re designed to look like sticks of dynamite.”
