  • Lisbon Lemon Olive Oil

    Lisbon-lemon-olive-oil

    Yum! This is my new favorite host gift. It’s about the same as a cheap bottle of wine, but so much more unique and thoughtful. Plus, it’s lemony delicious – fantastic in mashed potatoes, pasta salads, or as a light dressing for veggies or white fish.

  • Anchor Old Potrero 18th Century Style Rye

    Anchor-old-potrero-18th-century-style-rye

    A pet project of the Anchor Steam Brewery on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, Old Poetrero Rye is their attempt to recreate the original American whiskey. Rye is nearly impossible to find in bars or liquor stores, so if you know a whiskey lover, this is a can’t-miss gift. Old Potrero is made in a small copper pot still at the distillery, and aged for a year in Oak barrels. There’s never enough to go around, so get yours while it’s in season and available.

  • Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker

    Play-and-freeze-ice-cream-maker

    ON SALE All right already, people! I decided against posting this ice cream maker, but then I got a bazillion emails from people suggesting it. As I am a slave to popular opinion, here it is. You put the ingredients in, add ice, and then play with it like a ball. You can toss it, roll it, whatever. Makes a pint of ice cream in about twenty minutes.

  • Ingenuitea

    Ingenuitea

    My friend Heather cannot say enough about this teapot. The site has a very clear description of how it works: “When tea is ready, simply place it atop your cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the leaves.” Golf claps all around.

  • Laptop Lunch Bento Box Set

    Laptop-lunch-bento-box-set

    A reader wrote in to say: “This is an awesome lunchbox for kids, my standby birthday gift! Compartment setup really encourages people to avoid pre-packaged foods in favor of more eco-friendly (and healthy) options. Everyone on the playground has been asking me about ours.” The site calls them American-style bento boxes and says they’re dishwasher safe. Sounds good to me.

  • Yoga and Chocolate Chakra Box

    Yoga-and-chocolate-chakra-box

    Ha! Chocolate to align your chakras. The premise is that you have seven chakras that put out different energies in your body. You’re supposed to eat each truffle while sitting in a particular yoga pose to stimulate the various energies. It’s a tour of your spirit. Or a box of really good chocolate with an inspirational book. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

  • Mighty Leaf Tea Sampler

    Mighty-leaf-tea-sampler

    Delicious! When I admitted to being a tea freak, a bunch of my readers (most notably, Elise) sent notes urging us to post about Mighty Leaf Teas. I feel silly to have forgotten about Mighty Leaf for so long, because they’re an old favorite. Mighty Leaf packs tasty, whole-leaf tea into convenient, silky tea bags. (Most other tea bags are filled with crushed, bitter leaf flakes that are practically undrinkable.) This sampler gives your favorite tea snob 108 moments of peace, and many of the teas are even better on second brewing. Includes: Breakfast Americana, Earl Gold, Vanilla Bean, Orange Jasmine, Marrakesh Mint, Green Tea Tropical, African Nectar, Chamomile Citrus, and Mint Melange. (If you want the tea, but don’t need the pretty box and menu, you can purchase a refill box for only $54.)

  • Organic Calming Chamomile Herbal Tea

    Organic-calming-chamomile-herbal-tea

    ON SALE Though I’m a tea fanatic, I’ve never much enjoyed herbal teas. This chamomile tea has made me a convert. When you open the tin, you’ll find a jumble of sweet-smelling, whole chamomile flowers that look lovely in your cup. It has a touch of lavender and jasmine that make it a bit spicier and more honeyed than an average chamomile tea, but the effects are just as soothing. The site suggests reusing brewed blossoms in your bath, which sounds just fine.

    This knife makes me purr. We received one as a wedding gift years ago, and it still makes me smile every time I pull it out of the drawer. Hold one in your hand, and you’ll see what I mean. Resist the temptation to lick it, though. That smarts.
