2012 Home Gift Guide

Christmas Gifts

The holiday season is upon us, which means it’s time to give and receive Christmas gifts!  Personally, we hate dealing with crowds at the mall and suffering through parking lot traffic jams, so every year we try to do all of our holiday shopping online.

Since we’re big fans of home décor items, home gadgets and home appliances, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of some of our favorite home gifts.  We chose products that were more affordable (less $150), but rest assured that all of these are items we’d be thrilled to both give and receive.  Happy shopping!

Sweet Dreams Cupcake Pillow – $24

Who doesn’t love cupcakes?  Modeled after a chocolate cupcake with sprinkles, this super-realistic cupcake pillow is the perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth.  The best part is that it’s calorie-free.

Cardboard Animal Heads – $28 to $58

Cardboard Animal Heads

We’re not hunters by any means, but we love the idea of these cardboard animal trophies.  Easy to assemble and cruelty-free, we think one of these would be awesome in a modern man cave.  Choose from an elephant, deer or moose head.

Waring Pro Double Wine Chiller & Warmer – $129.99

Waring Pro Wine Chiller

Good wine makes a great gift, and we always get a few bottles every year.  This easy-to-use wine chiller and warmer is unique in that it holds 2 bottles at once, letting you chill a bottle of bubbly to celebrate and another one to go with dinner.

Yogurt is one of our household staples.  Instead of buying regular yogurt that’s chock full of chemicals at the grocery store, prepare natural yogurt that’s free from additives and yucky thickeners  with this artisan yogurt maker.  Don’t be fooled by the brand – this product works great for making yogurt for adults, too.
