Mrs. Twist Gives This: Gift Ideas for Her

I’ve got some great gift ideas for the sweet lady in your life.  If you want to check out the others ideas I’ve shared previously I’ve linked those stories at the end of this post.

First, pajamas from Soma.  Right now they are offering a great deal on their PJ sets for only $29 (normally priced $64)!  They are really soft and have the coolnights fabrication.  Check out all the styles both long and short sleeved.

Next, I would love a Mark & Graham monogrammed pill case.  I think it’s such a nice way to personalize and hide away the drug store plastic pill box.  Right now they are on sale for $38.99 (add an additional $9 for monogramming).

Next, this is going to seem random, but I love this blowdryer!  One of my bestie’s Mary introduced me to the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer.  I detest blowdrying my hair — it’s a total time suck.  Having long hair there are so many other things I could be doing during the time it takes me to dry my hair.  However, this blow dryer has a built in large brush that smooths, volumizes, curls and dries your hair all in one.  The barrel of the brush is really big so you won’t get your hair stuck in it.  Plus, it has cut down on the time it takes to dry my hair.  It’s been a game changer for me. I got mine from Amazon for $51 because Target was sold out.

This is wrapped under my tree ready to give someone on my gift list.   How about this adorable mini drink dispenser for their desk!  It’s from Packed Party. It holds 8-ounces of water, or whatever you’d like to enjoy!  $42

And last, for the cook, I picked up a set of these wooden measuring spoons from Euna Mae’s.  This handmade wood two-sided measuring spoon is a kitchen must-have! Because each end features the two most widely-used measures, it becomes a go-to for your baking, cooking, and more! Each spoon is branded with the year it was crafted, making it an instant heirloom that will be in your kitchen and kitchens to come. Use it to spoon out condiments, sauces and spreads from smaller jars, too.  $24.99

If you missed my previous ideas you can find them here and here.  Happy gift giving!

Mrs. Twist Gives This — Gifts for the beverage lover

Welcome to part two of my gift guide (you can read part one here).  Today, I will be sharing ideas for the friend that loves iced tea and coffee.  First, the Takeya Iced Tea Maker.  For years I relied on my trusty Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker.  The machine worked fine, but over the years the design of the pitcher to brew the tea  changed and the quality was not the same which meant that each time I brewed tea, the pitcher would leak.  Well, when I was at my friend Pam’s house she used the Takeya Iced Tea Maker and it brewed the most delicious glass of iced tea.  I always have a pitcher of iced tea in the refrigerator ready to go, and second I like to use PGTips loose tea and the Takeya checks both boxes.  You boil a kettle of water and pour it straight into the heat safe pitcher.  Add 6 teaspoons of loose tea to the removable basket and lower it down into the pitcher.  Screw on the lid and let it steep.  No need to add water or ice unless you want to.  It’s a game changer.  It comes in black, blueberry, raspberry and avocado (as shown).  $24.99

Next, I really want this SMEG Italian made coffee maker because it is SO cute and retro. Since I would likely only use it for parties, I probably won’t splurge on it.  But, this is a close second – the Nostalgia programmable drip coffee maker also in aqua.  It looks like something from Disney PrimeTime diner.  I love it.

And if you know someone that just loves to go camping or bought a camper, how about this cutie — the Nostalgia Breakfast Station!  $76And if you want to throw in a bag of coffee for good measure, Pioneer Woman’s coffee is the best.  When I need to make brewed coffee I like to use her whole beans, ground them and it makes a delicious cup of coffee.  If you never want to run out, sign up for their coffee subscription and customize your delivery time and the type of beans you want.  $14 per bag.

I’ll be back soon for installment three — personalized gifts.  Happy giving!
