2019 holiday gift guide: spices, wines, books, coffee!

Happy holidays, everyone! Another year has nearly passed – a year of eating, drinking, creating, enjoying. Now is the time to put my feet up for once, lol – but not until I finish my holiday shopping 😉

Are you excited about shopping for gifts for friends and family? I love spending hours in small shops, looking for the next big artisan foodie discovery – but sometimes time just passes me by, or I’m way too tired, or I just have to be somewhere else. This is why I have found gift guides to be of great help, and the perfect time-saver. Having experienced their usefulness first-hand, I have decided to put together my own gift guide, in an effort to streamline information on excellent products I’ve come across this past year, and to help passionate foodies in need of gift giving advice.

Basic Invite review: ‘Tis the season for great food and fabulous party invitations!

Nothing says holidays like delicious home-cooked food and precious moments spent with family and friends. Indeed, if there’s any time when I can’t seem to get myself out of the kitchen, it is around the winter holidays. The smell of decadent roasted turkey or ham, the crunching sound of crispy fresh baked cookies, the soothing velvet layers of potato and zucchini casseroles – there’s nothing quite like these, right? πŸ™‚ And yet, the food we eat is only one component of our usual winter holiday magic. When it comes to organizing festive gatherings, I like to show my appreciation for my loved ones by thinking things through, not just in terms of food alone, but also table setting, choice of wines, and party favors. Every little detail matters – and it all starts with a beautiful invite.

Thankfully, my knowledge of stationery companies has expanded recently upon being contacted byΒ  Basic Invite, who expressed their interest in a collaboration. I jumped at the opportunity – and who wouldn’t? I love festive cards and invitations, and the quality of the products I had seen on Basic Invite’s website appeared unsurpassed by any other company currently on the market. So I said yes to Basic Invite’s offer – and I let the invites roll 😉
