WoodWick Candles for a Guy That Likes a Cozy Home

My guy probably wouldn't probably want to admit this to many people, but he loves candles. He likes the way they make the house warm and cozy, and he also loves how they make the house smell. This year for the holidays, I decided to get him some candles as a stocking stuffer. He will appreciate the gesture and thought and I know they will get used.

I found a fantastic online deal on WoodWick Candles. I love doing my shopping online (who likes the crowds and long lines anyway?) and right now, all WoodWick Candles from the Lamp Stand are 15-25% off! It's great to be able to save money on amazing products. There are so many different scents available--you can get anything from fresh to floral and everything between! If you aren't done with your Christmas shopping yet, I would check out this great deal and load up on presents for those left on your list.

A Special Plate for Soup and a Sandwich

My guy is a child at heart. He loves to have fun playing games, could be out in the snow all day long if he had the opportunity and time, loves jokes, and could eat grilled cheese with tomato soup for every meal he has. This is a classic combo that I hadn't had since Elementary School until I met my man. Thanks to him, we have this meal at least once a week (I had to limit him so he could get some food from different food groups in!) I found this awesome gift at Uncommon Goods (an extremely fascinating website with very unique products--check it out!) and just had to get it. I am a sucker for making him happy and doing little things to surprise him, but he's the same way so we are a great match!)

This is a soup and sandwich plate has two spots designated on it--one for a sandwich and one for a bowl of soup. Some delicious combos include: French Onion Soup and a roast beef sandwich, chicken noodle soup with a warmed country turkey and cheese panini, vegetable beef soup with a delicious ham and cheese sandwich, or you could always try our favorite--grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup!

2012 Baseball Cards for My Brother

My brother has a lot of hobbies. I feel like he is always into something new. For awhile it was skateboarding, and then it was football. His hobbies usually come and go, but there is one hobby of his that has been around forever it seems! He loves collecting sports cards. He has been doing it for as long as I can remember and he truly loves his collection of cards.

Last year for Christmas, I got him a binder to put them all in. That was a great way for him to display the cards while keeping them protected. This year, I am going to add to his collection. I came across a website that has the latest and greatest 2012 baseball cards. This site has some amazing deals on several different brands of cards. He is going to be so excited to open his presents on Christmas and see what I got for him!

Tent Meets Hammock--So Cool!


One of our favorite activities in the summer is to go camping. We have had so many great adventures in all different parts of the country that involved camping. One of my favorite places we went camping was in the Grand Canyon. This was a breath-taking place and the pictures that you see don't do it justice. It is a beautiful place and if you haven't been there, you should check it out! 

I found this great product online and I think we are going to buy it! This is a tent and a hammock. It has the benefits of both and this is a product that truly takes camping to the next level. This looks amazing and there are some great places I know that this would work perfectly at.

My guy loves to cook breakfast. I don't mind one bit, because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! It's a hard meal to cook when everything has different timing and modes of cooking. Toast is made in the toaster, eggs are made on the stovetop, muffins are made in the oven. It's sometimes hard to coordinate all of those different delicious items without messing up the cooking times! 

I am venturing out tonight to do a little Black Friday shopping (yes, I am that crazy) and am going to pick up this griddle to get for my man for Christmas. He's going to love cooking breakfast on this instead of using several different pans to complete the job. I can't wait to try our first meal on this great kitchen appliance!

Tie Protection at Its Finest

My guy has to wear a necktie to work everyday. I don't know how he can stand to do that! It would drive me crazy. I like to dress up on occasion when we have an event or something going on, but otherwise my favorite outfits consist of jeans and my favorite sweatshirt. Since his job requires it, however, he deals with it and says that he doesn't mind.

He has quite the collection of neckties in our closet. He has so many different colors, shapes and materials that he can go weeks without wearing the same one twice! I came across these great roll-up tie caddy that makes storage of neckties easy and convenient. This product will keep them wrinkle-free and is super convenient for traveling.

A Way to Save Time and Energy With Earbuds

My little brother listens to music constantly. I honestly don't know how he can hear things still because every time I see him I swear he has his earbuds in his ears, his iPod playing and the music turned up. I always tease him that he eats, sleeps, and breathes music but I'm glad that he found something that he loves so much.

For the holidays, I usually get my brother an iTunes giftcard because I know it is something that he knows and loves. He can get the newest music and put it directly on his iPod. After giving my brother this gift for the past three Christmases, he is bound to guess what he is going to get this year, but he's wrong!

I found this amazing accessory that can hold his earbuds so that when he takes them out to talk to somebody or answer a phone call, he doesn't have to set them down or wrap them around this iPod to keep them from getting tangled like he usually does--they just stay close in a convenient spot to be placed back in his ears when he's ready to start his music again. This accessory is called "Props" and it's great for the music-lover on your Christmas list!

Smiley Bowl That Can Be Used for...Anything!

I love looking around online at some of the amazing things that are available out there. I am truly amazed at some of the things that I have found! This is a Smiley Bowl, and it's super cute! It's also very useful and can be used for such a vast variety of purposes.

My guy has been into pistachios lately. He likes to grab a handful and snack on them while we watch the evening news before supper. It keeps him from snacking on the supper while we're making it and is a little habit that he started a few months back. This bowl would make it very easy to separate the shells from the pistachios that haven't been opened yet.

This could also be used to separate the items in your pocket at the end of the day: keys, pens, etc in one part and loose change in the other. What are some other great ways you could use this?

Easy Burger Maker for Camping

My guy and I love summertime. This is the time of the year that is filled with a ton of fun activities and events. Although Summer is a long time away, I am very excited to make plans for all the things we love to do during our favorite season. We were just talking last week about some of the things we wanted to do.

This coming Summer, we decided that we want to do a lot more camping. We only got to go out a few times last year (we didn't get a new tent until August) and we're hoping to go out a lot more this coming year.

I came across this amazing product after we got done talking and I can't wait to see his face when he opens it up for Christmas this year. This burger rack can be used on the grill to make sliders, or can be used over the campfire when camping out!

A Perfect Solution to Save Time

My guy and I like to split up the housework to make it fair. We are both super busy and like to save time when possible. It helps when we help each other out and split up some of the duties. When one of us dislikes a particular house chore, the other person will often do it. I personally can't stand taking the garbage out. This was always my job when I was a kid growing up and I think that's why I dislike it--I'm just sick of it! My guy doesn't like it all that much either, but he doesn't mind it as much as I do, so this is always his job.

I found this product that will save him time and make things easier on him! This product can sit on the bottom of the kitchen garbage can and is out of site. A roll of trash bags slides in and the top one can fit through the slot. When you take the garbage bag out, a new one is ready to be popped out and put into place. This is great and will make a fantastic gift for the guy in your life that is nice enough to take out the trash!

A Shower Curtain for Dog Bathing

Have you ever seen a cat get a bath? This is a lot like the experiences we have when we give our dog his once-monthly bath. We try to avoid bathing him at all costs, but when he sleeps in our beds and sits on our couches, we find it necessary to keep him as clean as possible.

It's always such a chore to wash the dog that I am willing to clean the entire house if he agrees to wash the dog. Getting him into the bathtub is very difficult and it takes a lot of coaxing and treats to get him even into the bathroom. Then once we get his 90 lb. body into the tub, he shakes all over the place to try to get the water off of him.

I'm glad I found this pet shower curtain which will make bath day way easier! This curtain has arm sleeves so that you stay dry while your dog gets the bath. This makes it easier on everybody!

An Onion Holder to Ease Cutting and Cooking

My guy loves to cook, and that makes me so happy! I do not complain one bit when he takes over the kitchen. He has made a ton of amazing new recipes lately and I love it. Last night, we had french onion soup. It was amazing--I wish we would've had leftovers so I could've had it for lunch again! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.

Watching him cut up the onions made me think that there has to be an easier way out there. Especially since onions don't smell the best, I always like to get them over with as quickly as possible. I was doing some specific searching this morning and found this amazing onion holder. This will make his job much easier! I can't wait to give it to him--maybe I'll get another meal out of the deal. ;)
