Here we are … it’s Cyber Monday, and there has been sooo many commercials, advertisements, blogs and newsletters, oh, and the announcement of sales literally pouring into our life through TV, radio, Instagram, emails, and through our own mailbox. So, I thought I’d get in on the fun, because it is always a thrill to take full advantage of a deal, right? This year, as Rip and I celebrate Christ’s birth a little differently, I thought I’d share with you some of what we think make great under the tree gifts, for “Him and for Her.”
- This Caldo Linen Kitchen Apron (for him or her) is the perfect apron! The neck is adjustable and the waistline is, too. It’s light weight, not fussy at all, and I just love the length and the fact that is has good deep front pockets. These aprons come in two shades of grey, denim, a deep teal and a light beige. One reason why I really love using these aprons is because linen is naturally stain resistant — just machine wash and hang dry. Fabric 90% linen, 10% cotton. But they make a GREAT GIFT: Get this kitchen staple for the passionate chef in your life (and you’ll want to use it too!).
2. The Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool Washable Queen Blanket comes in so many different patterns and colors. But wouldn’t this blanket be just perfect for those nights together around a cozy fire while watching, of course, . . . Hallmark Movies!!
3. The Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine Bundle with Aeroccino Milk Frother by Breville, in Titan is a 19 bar pump system that offers barista-style single-serve Coffee or Espresso every time, perfectly extracting the delicate flavor of each Nespresso Original Coffee capsule. This is a great gift for them to both enjoy!
If you avoid dairy and wouldn’t use the frother, it also comes as the Nespresso CitiZ Espresso Machine by De’Longhi
4. Everyone who is close to Rip and I know this about us…we end every day holding each other in our recliner. It’s important to us to do this, no. matter. what. Even if we’ve had a little squabble, we make a point to be side-by-side every night in that one recliner because the bottom line is always this – we love each other! And we’re thankful that we “get to” end every day with each other. No, this big o’ chairs are not the best to work with design wise, and yes, they are chunky monkeys! But we have a separate gathering room that is on the other side of our little farmhouse and that is where we have our big brown recliner, with a couple of other very comfy chairs. But having this ‘recliner time’ is something we intentionally have made as a commitment in our marriage. I’m telling you, there is just something about ending a day snuggling in a recliner. So, here is an idea … it won’t fit under the tree, but it’s a great deal on a GREAT recliner and it may be large, but if you had the space and it worked with your family room, it’s a wonderful and very comfortable chair. It is the Umberger Cuddlier Recliner by Simmons Upholstery.
