A Few Cool Gift Ideas

Christmas gift ideas have never been more plentiful.  With social media, it’s easy to find fantastic gift ideas to fit your budget and interest that will delight any recipient.  The challenge can be finding the real gems in the ocean of fabulous options. I’ve found few that I think are pretty cool starters for this holiday season.

1. This is one gorgeous bottle stopper that works for so much more than wine.  Everybody loves sparkle and at only $25,    what a steal!  Available at katespade.com.

2.  The Tea Drop Sampler by Sashee Chandran is an unexpected way to enjoy a great cup of tea on the go.  Just add hot water.  The shaped drops contain tea, sugar and spices and are completely dissolvable.  The sampler box includes two citrus ginger, vanilla white, rose earl grey and sweet peppermint.  For a holiday treat or anytime, this gift is getting rave reviews!  I think I’ll treat myself to these!  Available for $12 at uncommon goods.com.

3.  Count on Kikkerland to come up with some of the most creative useful things around.  The Torpedo 8 Piece Screwdriver Set is such a great idea for fixing things with small screws.  In the colorful cylinder there are 8 micro phillips and flathead screwdriver heads.  A great stocking stuffer for girls and guys for just $6 at kikkerland.com.

4.  The ‘Chained Up’ photo display is already selling out.  I saw this while shopping and was totally smitten.  It’s a chain with magnets to attach photos, cards other lightweight items.  It comes in gold, silver mighties, dog lover, social media and all you need is love.  Prices vary by retailer, available at threebythree.com for $10.

Happy Fall!

Fall is my favorite season.  Maybe being born in September has something do with my affection for the season of crisp air, bold colors and pumpkins in more colors than I ever learned about growing up.  I was at the farmer’s market last weekend and snapped these pics that that say fall has really arrived.

Happy fall!

Ornament Stands

We’ve added ornament stands to Aettra.com to go with our ornaments.  They’re small but mighty with just enough style to make your ornaments pop!  We couldn’t offer ornaments with a cool way to display them any day of the year.  There are two styles available, both under $5.
