Must Have Gifts For Men & Teens: Bold, Chunky Euro Design @Guess Watches

Euro Style Watches For Men, Bold Design Watches For Men, Chunky Watches For Men

If you are ever in doubt about what to gift to a man or male teen in your life, a well-constructed watch is always an excellent way to go!  Even if your fellow has a style that is more subdued, I've yet to meet a man who was not happy to sport a new watch or add a new time piece to his collection.

A watch is to a man what a handbag is to a woman.


My son is just in the beginning of his journey into the world of finer things for men, yet he is already developing style choices and certainly knows what he likes when he sees it.   He certainly does not hold back in sharing his opinions about what is stylish and ideal.

Black, Metal Band Watches, Bold Watches, Watches for Teens, Chunky Watches For Teens

In querying him about the ideal style to impress, important watch characteristics for the discriminating teen are bold, big and substantial.  No mild watch will do.

Of course, a wise mother knows that sturdy, solid construction is important for teens, as well as weather resistant design.  When you find that time piece that will make his eyes dance, it is important that it can hold up to the rigors of teenhood.

10 yr warranty watch, Easy gifts for men, easy gifts for teens, quality time pieces for men

After having an opportunity to inspect the quality, construction and appeal of this sharp Guess Men's watch, I have no doubt that it is an excellent choice for my son.  I am confident that he will find the styling to his satisfaction and that the watch will keep up with his rugged demands.  Certainly the 10 year warranty for all US styles from Guess is a desirable factor in making a selection.

Pampering Gifts ~ Anti Aging Hydrating Spa Trio Give Away

For the last few years, I found myself a bit challenged in finding the right gifts for both my mother and grandmother.  Although each might have a small need they will share as a gift idea, most often the response I receive when I inquire is a dismissive, "I don't need anything".  This lack of direction usually results in a gift that truly is not needed or, upon a few occasion, multiple family members presenting them with quite similar gifts.  Of course, no matter how comfortable or cozy the slippers, robe or holiday sweater might be, a woman only needs so many of them

Common Gift For Women, Women's Sherpa Slippers, Comfortable Slippers, Amazon

Instead, perhaps a gift that will be warmly welcomed might be of a pampering nature, formulated specifically to address the mature woman's needs, such as the Anti-Aging Hydrating Spa Trio from Dermagist.

Pampering Gifts, Gifts For Mature Women, Skim Pampering Gifts

The Hydrating Spa set is perfect for soothing and treating all of a woman, with three products specifically designed to soothe, heal and improve. 

Hydropeutic Body Lotion
deep hydration and calming
treats wrinkles and skin sag

Hydro-Renewal Hand Cream

skin discoloration and spot lightening

tightens and firms skin



Foot and Heel Revitalizing Cream heals and soothes
repairs cracking and dryness

I was pleased to have an opportunity to test the Hydrating Spa Trio, finding the set immediately appealing, the packaging certainly lending to to anticipation of soothing and relief. I found each to have a unique scent and to be rich in texture. Although the Hydropeutic Body Lotion was not as thick as the other formulas in the set, I found it easy to apply and only a modest amount was quite effective for covering any target body area. Appealing inclusions within the ingredients were both white and green tea, tangerine and lavender.

Body Lotion with Tangerine, Lavender, Green Tea, White Tea

The Hydro-Renewal Hand Cream was quite thick and rich, with ingredients including licorice and citrus.  The consistency allowed for maximum effect, again with a modest amount of product and treatment left my hands quite smooth, soft and youthful.

Licorice and Citrus Hand Cream, Pampering Gifts For Women

My favorite from the set was certainly the Foot and Heel Revitalizing Cream.  A thicker consistency, similar to the hand cream, it had a rejuvenating and refreshing scent, familiar to me as similar to my favorite Aveda hair care products.  With peppermint and eucalyptus in the formula, it was soothing and the effects long lasting.

Peppermint and Eucalyptus Foot Cream, Soothing Foot Treatments

Although each of these products can be purchased separately, taking advantage of the Hydrating Spa Trio as a set is a tremendous value, particularly now while the set is on sale as a convenience for holiday gifting!

Delicious, Gourmet Gifts For Everyone ~ Guylian Chocolate



The gourmet connoisseur on your list.

A grandmother who has everything.

The teacher, so devoted and hard-working.

A surprise guest at your holiday gathering.

That someone particularly special you want to treat with indulgence.



The need of extraordinary gifts for the holidays that hold a wide appeal are significant, yet the task of discovering just the right selection, particularly during the frenetic rush of holiday shopping, can pose a great challenge to even the most experienced of holiday shoppers.  Whether you are intentionally seeking a gourmet gift to delight your recipient's palate or are finding your creativity waning as the shopping days grow short, you can hit the mark with ease by selecting a delicious gift of quality chocolates.

Delicious Holiday Gifts, Easy Holiday Gifts, Gifts For Everyone, Affordable Gifts, Quality Chocolate

Why Chocolate?
Cacao tree seeds have been used for millennium to create chocolate drinks, with even the history of solid chocolate centuries old, the onset dating back to the 18th century.  As the process of solid chocolate crafting was improved over the centuries, with such refinements as the addition of greater amounts of cocoa butter into the blend, as well as the inclusion of sugars and milk, modern connoisseurs can enjoy an expansive variety of specialty chocolates, both for personal indulgence as well as for gifting.  Traditional types of chocolate include sweetened, milk, white, dark chocolate with sugar free options now readily available. Fine chocolatiers often create rich flavor combinations by including nuts and crisps within their recipe or by sculpting specialty pieces, wrapping luxuriously around ganache, fondants, fruits, nuts and other fillings.

Fine Chocolate Truffles, Marbled Chocolate Truffles, Belgian Truffles, Fine Chocolate Gifts

Why Guylian?
Founded in 1958 by Belgium chocolatier artisan Guy Foubert and his wife, Liliane, Guylian is word renown for their trademark seahorse chocolate truffles and commitment to exceptional quality in fine chocolate.  Meticulous details on each piece to the finest of ingredients alone warrant a closer inspection and certainly a taste.

To Guy Foubert, founder of Chocolaterie Guylian, chocolate making was an art. He was a visionary dedicated to creating the ultimate chocolate experience, one that no other chocolate could match in quality or taste experience. It is for this reason that the original, signature chocolate truffle recipe has been unchanged for more than 50 years and why each of our chocolate seashells and seahorse chocolates has the Guylian quality signature.

Belgian Chocolate Truffles, Fine Chocolate Gifts, Praline Truffles, Delicious Chocolate Truffles

Artisanal Belgian Chocolates
From first view and through each distinctive taste, Guylian Chocolate Truffles stand out as something extraordinarily special. Both the seahorse and shell designs are skillfully sculpted with fine detail, lending to a tantalizing offering for guests and gift recipients alike. The marbling of white, milk and dark chocolates leaves each piece with a unique and original appearance that is all at once appealing.

Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolates are carefully marbled to combine the distinctively unique flavors and textures of the finest Belgian white chocolate, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate.  Chocolate marbling creates an indulgent, sensorial experience that delights any chocolate lover. Guy Foubert was the first chocolatier to bring together and marble the intricate flavours of Belgian white, dark, and milk chocolates. A Guylian marbled chocolate allows the chocolate's message, its luxuriously creamy texture and rich decadent taste, to be fully appreciated. 

Guylian Original Praline Chocolate Truffles, Individually Wrapped Truffles, Single Chocolate Truffles
Exquisite Gifts, Elegant Offerings 
Guylian offers a wide assortment of collections, perfect to add just the right taste to your next gathering or to offer as a gourmet gift, certain to be welcomed by anyone on your recipient list.  We found the truffles delightful, both visually and taste. Delicate and delicious, with the unique marbling of chocolates, filled with their original praline truffle recipe created of fresh roasted and caramelized Mediterranean hazelnuts.  The high quality of these carefully crated chocolate pieces is clear, from one tempting piece to the next.  I realized quickly, after sampling, just how well received these belgian truffles would be as the medley of flavors melted in an invitation to just "one more" piece.

The Guylian Quality Signature ensures that we use 100% pure cocoa butter in our seashell chocolate truffles, the critical ingredient that makes chocolate so desirable as it delivers the luxuriously creamy mouthfeel for which the best premium chocolate is known. Guylian does not allow cocoa butter to be replaced by cheaper vegetable fats; as vegetable fats don’t deliver the same taste experience and mouth feel consumers expect from premium chocolates. It is this quality promise that delivers the superior taste and texture that defines the luxuriously creamy, "melt-in-your-mouth" Guylian Belgian Chocolate Truffle experience.

 Project Seahorse
As I prefer to support businesses that have strong outreach and support programs, I was quite pleased to learn of Guylian's long commitment to Project Seahorse.  Guylian has supported Project Seahorse, a marine ecosystem conservation effort, for well over a decade with contributions of over 1.5 million to this important ecological cause.

Ten Easy Tips For Eco-Friendly Holiday ~ Going Greener In New Year

Once again this year, as seems to be an ongoing trend, my husband missed his opportunity to put up our Christmas lights while the weather was still mild.   Each year, I sweetly remind him of the seemingly perfect chance to get this seasonal decorating task out of the way, during the last warm break in the weather.  I certainly do not envy him, as he invariably ends up climbing his ladder to hang icicle lights along the second floor eave while the snow is falling and worry about the possibility of a mis-step.  Should he stumble or fall, it would likely put him further behind on his "Honey Do" list!

In all seriousness, I can appreciate his reticence, as he the holiday task he dislikes even more than placing the light strands is sorting through the tangled strands of lights after pulling them from our Christmas decor totes, only to discover a number of them are either not lighting this year or have countless spent bulbs. 

Traditional Christmas Lights, Colored Light Strands, Holiday Lights

This year, however, while providing a bit of moral support as my husband tackled untangling our holiday lights, I realized my family has been missing an opportunity to green up our eco footprint!  I remembered a recent news report sharing that our local electric company would be allowing customers to exchange their traditional Christmas lights for more energy efficient LED Christmas lights!  Although we may have missed our opportunity to take advantage of free decorative light sets, there would not be a better time than now to purchase energy saving sets, especially after surveying the number of challenged sets in our stock.

Over 20 million pounds of discarded holiday lights 
are recycled every year! 1

Twenty millions pounds!  It is a challenge to even wrap my mind around that quantity.  While I am glad to know that so many Christmas lights are recycled, it certainly gives one pause to consider the possible quantity that are not recycled and definitely the amount of energy spent in the recycling process.  My family has been actively changing out other standard light bulbs in our home for more energy efficient bulbs, however, with the holiday light sets tucked away, I had not even thought of improving those to green sets.  My curiosity piqued, I explored a bit at Energy.gov to learn more about the benefits of LED holiday lights.

Safer, Sturdier, Longer Lasting, Easier To Install 
LED holiday lights can last up to 40 seasons 
and cost a mere fraction of the cost of traditional holiday lights to operate. 2

Of course, this welcome green discovery only serves to motivate me to consider other ways we can save around the house by making more green lighting uipgrades. We certainly have other outdoor lighting fixtures that are in use more frequently, such as our front entrance fixture and the flood lights in our backyard. Installing a new fixture at our home's entrance is certainly on my husband's "Honey Do" list and presents the perfect opportunity to select an Energy Star model.

Green Light Fixtures, Energy Efficient Outdoor Lighting, Pewter Outdoor Entrance Lights,  Pewter Carriage Entry Lights

To replace all our outdoor fixtures and bulbs, particularly the larger ones might be a costly undertaking, however the sooner we make the green changes, the sooner we will reap the rewards and begin to recoup our savings. Particularly with cost savings on lighting in mind, as with so many of our home remodeling purchases, we might find a way to benefit our budget by searching for wholesale LED prices and make the switch in one fell swoop.

Of course, with as much difficulty as I have in motivating the husband to tackle our seasonal outdoor lighting needs, I might have more success in saving the outdoor lighting conversion until spring, rather focusing on our interior green improvement opportunities. With two upper baths painfully sporting loud and large light bars circa 1980, I would be more than pleased for an energy efficient LED lighting upgrade to be focused in these rooms that will be more visible to both myself and my guests through the winter season! If only I could decide on the perfect Energy Star Bath Bar to replace the beastly fixtures!


Eco-Friendly Bath Lighting, Brushed Nickel Bath Fixtures, Energy Star Bath Fixtures

Whichever green project we tackle first, there is no doubt that my family can do more to green up our holiday, as well as our new year.  The key is simply in taking a green step!

Ten Easy Ways To Green Up Holiday And Home

Swap out holiday light sets for energy efficient LED sets

Reuse boxes and packing to ship holiday gifts

Select gifts that are created with post-consumer product and are recyclable

Add  organic ingredients to your holiday recipes

Purchase an Energy Star fixture or appliance as a family gift

Stumped for a gift idea?  
Make a donation to a green organization in your recipient's name

Save holiday greeting cards to use as decoration on wrapped gifts

Purchase a potted live pine instead of a cut Christmas Tree

Support eco-responsible retailers

Make a family resolution to green up one new area in your lives or home 
each month in the new year

Must Have Unique Gifts: Delight With The Unexpected

When I first began shopping for holiday gifts for my family as a young adult, the first, and usually only, stop I made was to the local shopping mall or a nearby electronics store.   A few years later, I found myself tiring of the cookie cutter selections and began seeking out specialty local retailers in my desire to find just the right gifts.  Although I still like to support local small businesses, today I complete the majority of my holiday and gift shopping online where my gift options are only as limited as my imagination.

Now, in my middle Mom years, the adults in my family are certainly well stocked, with few real needs, leaving me often to my own devices in finding that well-suited gift.  Certainly the children in our extended family are able to provide a list of plastic needs and electronic wants, however the ability to both surprise and delight them with something unexpected is what seems to give both my recipient and I the most pleasure.

 Unique Gifts, Unusual Gifts, Wood Gifts

 I recently had opportunity to explore an online store new to me, devoted to a wide variety of kaleidoscopes and teleidoscopes, as well as other unique gift handcrafted and artisan created gifts.  I remembered being delighted with toy kaleidoscopes as a child and bemused that I had not thought of them as a unique gift option on mine own.  None the less, I enjoyed exploring the store, as well as a wooden teleidoscope.

Kaleidoscope Gifts, Teleidoscope Gifts, Holiday Gifts For Everyone

At first, I was uncertain about the difference between kaleidoscopes and teleidoscopes, however after a brief inspection, I realized I had unknowingly picked up the later in the form of simple party favors for some child's birthday or another.  Kaleidoscopes contain various pieces of color within a rotating tumbler or interchangeable disc that when directed to a light source and turned, create a changing effect of colors and patterns.  Teleidoscopes are fitted with a special lens, allowing the user to create their own unique view by directing the lens at a variety of different sources.

Easy Gifts For Everyone, Unusual Gifts For Teens, Desk Set Gifts

With a long standing love affair with pieces crafted of wood, I enjoyed the smooth texture, vibrant colors and appealing lines of 5 1/2 inch Padauk Hardwoods Laminated Teleidoscope and was not surprised to discover it to be one of the most popular items offered by Kaleidoscopes For You.  Shipped in a nice gift box, with protective velvet drawstrings bags for both the teleidoscope as well as the wooden base, this piece retails at only $42.00 with modest flat shipping fee.  Certainly a unique gift idea for young to adult recipients.

Collectible Kaleidoscopes, Handcrafted Kaleidoscopes, Artist Created Gifts, Limited Edition Parlour Kaleidoscope, Modern Glass Art Parlour Kaleidoscope

I was surprised by the wide variety of kaleidoscopes, teleidoscopes and other gifts offered at this site, finding simple pieces very modestly priced that would suit a younger child very well, perfect for stocking stuffers, as well as artisan handcrafted models more suitable for collectors or kaleidoscope enthusiasts.  Although, as I mentioned, I have a fondness for simple pieces crafted of wood, I found myself enchanted by a few of the selections crafted of brass and stained glass.

Must Have Fab Gifts: Chic Leopard For Women & Teens


Leopard Watches For Women, Cheetah Print Jewelry, Fine Timepieces, Gifts For Teens

Whether hunting for a gift for a Teen Diva with a cheetah obsession or a girl who loves to accessorize on the wild side, knowing where to hunt is key in finding the perfect chic gift for the season.  There is no doubt, whichever the direction of your selection, a touch of bling and dazzle makes a gift all that much more desirable, lending to that all important eye twinkling upon presentation.

Cheetah Accessories, Leopard Fashion, Watches For Women

Upon reaching a certain age, Teen Divas begin to develop their own, very specific sense of style.  Big, bold and fierce statement pieces are all the rage.  While younger teens may be tempted to follow the pack, older teens become much more discriminating, seeking out ways to step out of the mainstream and identify themselves through their own twists on trends.

Fab Gifts For Teens, Holiday Gifts For Women, Leopard Fashion, Cheetah Accessories

For the past few years, shopping for the Teen Diva has presented a bit of a challenge in that as each year passes, her taste, style and preferences are becoming more specific.  More often than not,  her holiday wish list contains more gift cards than gifts.  Although it would certainly be easy to accommodate her requests, opening envelopes of plastic, no matter how smartly dressed, does not lead to the twinkle factor a mother loves to see.

Animal Print Accessories, Safari Looks, Fab Gifts For Women

Having had an opportunity to appreciate a Guess watch from their fiercely gold and fabulous collection, I have no doubt the diva will be twinkling.  Well-crafted, bold and certainly brilliant, the Gold Sparkle Leopard Crystal model is simply divine.

The key to uncovering the twinkle, involves a bit of intuition and exploration of the right collections.  

A gorgeous leather handbag or tote,
a fabulous new pair of shoes, 
a fresh new floral scent, 
a stylish timepiece or fine jewelry element, 
to add to begin the collection that will lead her into the years ahead.

Ten Reasons To Shop Online For The Holidays ~ Amazon Gift Card Give Away

After converting to doing most of my holiday shopping online a few years ago out of necessity due to my family's perpetually demanding schedule, I fell in love with the ease, convenience and variety of gifts I discovered.  Although I still shop in store when time allows, I am most likely to shop at local stores, rather than big box stores as the variety seems to be so similar from one physical chain store to the next.

Premium Quality Gift Wrap Paper, Holiday Wrapping Paper, Red and White Wrapping Paper

Beyond the convenience of not trolling the parking lot for a parking space just to fight crowds of shoppers to find a poorly stocked shelf or selection, shopping online with retailers such as Amazon.com provides the lovely benefit of shipping gifts directly to my recipient.  Of course, presenting gifts in person is preferred but there have often been years when the blustery weather along Lake Michigan has delayed trips to Chicago to visit my grandmother and I have wanted to send a gift ahead for her to enjoy until we are able to connect personally, often weeks later.

Certainly, more often than not, Christmas gifts are shipped to my sister's family in Alabama.  While she often travels back to Michigan for Thanksgiving, I am rarely coordinated enough to have gifts ready for her that early in the season.  With three children in addition to my sister and brother in law, I would rather let Amazon ship my packages than try to lug the lot to ship or try to find a box to fit all the gifts within.  In fact, most of my purchase at Amazon are shipped for free with their special shipping offers, saving more of my holiday budget for actually purchasing gifts, rather than going toward a hefty shipping charge.

Ten Reasons Why I Shop Online For The Holidays

No parking hassles
No crowds
Clear stock and availability conditions
Greater selection
Unique gift options
Free shipping 
Ship directly to my recipient
Easy to find best prices
Fits my hectic schedule
Always a last minute solution
