Welcome back to my favorite finds mini-series! Below you will find my go-to gifts of 2014. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my favorite apps and gadgets.
Their boxed goods are amazing. Granola, cheese coins, sugar cookies, nuts, etc. You can’t go wrong.
Recipe courtesy of Ina Garten, my imaginary BFF, in her cookbook How Easy is That. I gave them to all of our neighbors this year in little mason jars. Warning: super addictive!
Tip: I buy all the nuts at Trader Joe’s.
In September, I buy really healthy “paperwhite narcissus” bulbs from a good nursery, keep them in the fridge until Thanksgiving week. Throughout the year, I look for solid glass vases. I plant the bulbs in the vases with moss (purchased or harvested from my yard) and start watering (not too much—just enough to keep moss moist). I give the vases to family and friends during Thanksgiving week. They bloom by Christmas! A heavenly smell.
