  Here are some of my favorite things to use in the kitchen or just fun gifts to give someone else:

1. Woodwick Candles – In this basket I have a chocolate Woodwick candle.  You can have the aroma of chocolate without all of the calories. My favorite part about these is that the wooden wicks on these candles crackle like a fire. I don’t even want to tell you how many of these candles I have. I love the Apple Crisp one for this time of year.

2. Barbara Anne Black Sequin Apron – Want to entertain in style? Just because you’re still prepping appetizers in the kitchen doesn’t mean you can’t do it with some glam. Throw on this black sequin apron and you’ll be stylin’ while you’re cooking. Of course this isn’t an apron you go rolling around in dough with. It’s more for throwing on right before your guests come so you can do some light work in the kitchen and look great doing it.

3. Dark Kiss Lotion by Bath and Body Works – Every single time I wear this lotion I have men…and women ask me what fragrance I’m wearing. Love it.

4. Betty Crocker Double Spatula and Silicone Basting Brush – Everyone needs a good spatula and I happened to love this double edged spatula with a wide end and a narrow end. I go through spatulas like crazy and this one outlasts them all. The silicone basting brush works great for brushing melted butter and then you don’t have to deal with all of those little hairs that the regular basting brushes have.

5. Shine Necklace from the Shine Project – This website is a non-profit site that gives it’s proceeds to teens, families, and others in need. Their motto is:  Going out of your comfort zone to bring light to those who need hope. The Shine Project emulates love, sacrifice, and CHANGE. And they happen to sell beautiful necklaces with a story behind them. I love everything this site is about.

6. Cuisnart Mini Prep Food Processor – This is the most used item in my kitchen, second only to my Kitchen Aid. Someday I might give in and buy a full sized processor but I can do everything with this one. It’s great for dressings, salsa, chopping veggies…love, love, love.

7. Scooper – My friend Kendee couldn’t believe that I didn’t use a scooper for my cupcakes and so she bought me one. Using this, all of them are uniform in size and bake evenly. I can never go back. Great stocking stuffer.

8.  Food Network Magazine Subscription – Magazine subscriptions are great gifts to give. Whether your loved one likes golf, home decor, or cooking, there’s something for everyone. I squeal every time I get my Food Network Magazine in the mail.
