Good Luck with That Card from Creativity
Check me out people – I’m gettin’ around these days! NO, not like that you silly. I’m over on the Wantist blog today with a hilarious gift collection for expecting parents. Know someone who’s preggo? You DON’T want to miss these gifts!
And side note – if you’ve never heard of or visited Wantist, get ready to bookmark it. It’s FAB!
In my opinion, it’s never too early to start your holiday shopping. I generally like to keep a stock of wrapping paper and ribbon all the time, so I am always prepared for gift giving, even when it’s not a holiday. And I am really excited about adding this to my collection of supplies.
Oribbon is a Japanese sticky ribbon. It’s a sticky strip of paper that has been scored in multiple directions so you can fold it any number of ways. With just a few folds you can create some pretty amazing three dimensional designs. The set comes with six strips of paper in three different colors, as well as illustrated instructions on different folding techniques.
My presents just got a whole lot cuter!
This is totally the gift to get someone with a young child. Especially if that child’s name is Damien. Though he appears cute and cuddly with an enticing, “Hug Me,” embroidered on his fuzzy little chest, mark my words – this bear is not your friend! Give him a squeeze and he’ll show you his true colors. I’m guessing he’s either a sailor or a truck driver in disguise.
Quite literally, in fact, and in more ways than one! Now when you blow your nose, blow it on something that really blows, like a bad report card, a pink slip, an insufficient funds statement, a Dear John letter, or a parking citation! The That Blows Hanky set features all 5 of these so take your pick!
The Richards’ family vacations were basically one big scavenger hunt for the nation’s best barbeque. And after visiting A LOT of restaurants and tasting A LOT of barbeque, Pig of the Month was born. The Richards love of barbeque is a love to be shared and by recreating their favorites from all their travels in their very own kitchen, they can now provide YOU with the best barbeque too! Pig of the Month offers ribs just the way all barbecue lovers want them: perfectly seasoned, tender-on-the-inside but crispy-on-the-outside, smoky, and mouthwatering! They only use certified humane and natural meats from DuBreton Farms and offer a 100% money back guarantee should you, for some reason (which is unlikely), not be satisfied with your order. So what are you waiting for? PIG OUT!
Let’s face it, we’ve all received, at one time or another, a gift from someone that has been, let’s just say – less than optimal. Basically, it sucked ass. This scenario is the sole reason I am 100% against obligatory gift giving. Christmas, birthdays, baby showers – all events for obligatory gift giving. Don’t even get me started on office gift swaps – OF ANY KIND.
Well now, thanks to the folks at Enjoy This Beautiful Day, we can put an end to all the shitty gifts with their handy Gift Complaint Form. They suggest to give them to the recipient with the gift. I say keep them on hand and use them when you are the recipient.
I’m not a baby person (they smell funny, leak and are sweaty) but if I were and I had them, they’d definitely be wearing these I’m a Grown Up Bibs! Aw, hell, who am I kidding – I should be wearing them now. Everything I eat looks good on me!
If you happen to be of the baby-liking-type, the 2-bib set is on sale for half off right now – only $12!
I think we’ve pretty well established that you can never have enough bacon on this here blog. And the boundless possibilities seem to continue to be neverending – like this here Sir Francis Bacon Chocolate Peanut Brittle. It’s made from artisan smoked bacon and home-grown, USA peanuts. It’s a perfect time to try some out, too. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so why not get a 2fer and buy some for your loved one…and then eat it all. Sounds my ideal kind of holiday!
