Christmas Gift Guide 2011

I’ve been seeing gift guides popping up all over and thought I’d join the fun! It was a hit when I made last year’s list, so without further ado – here is my Christmas 2011 gift guide:

For the Home Cook:

  • Taco Tongs (Hubs’ grandma has these and she makes KILLER taco shells!!!)

For the Fitness Fanatic (and those wanting to start the new year out right):

  • Heart Rate Monitor/Calorie Counter (I have the Polar FT7 on my list!)

  • Spin Shoes for the spin class lover (they will change their life!! I LOOOOOVVVEE my Shimanos – don’t forget to buy the cleats that go on them):

  • Light weight Shoes for Zumba & Step Classes (I have these Nike Eclipses under the tree waiting to be opened in 3 weeks!)

  • Gold’s Gym Stay Ball / Yoga Ball (this has taken the place of my chair in my office & i LOVE it!! It has sand in the bottom so it does fly out from under you)



For the Girl Next Door:


  • Ralph Perfume (Been wearing this scent since high school… it’s a classic!)


 State Necklaces

For the Man in your Life:

    Great list! I actually bought those whiskey stones for my husband a week ago—hope he likes them! That “stay ball” is pretty flipping cool, too! I think I’m going to add it to my wish list!

      the stayball is awesome. I use it as my desk chair all day at work – it’s helped a lot with my posture and lower back pain! Plus its totally fun to bounce all day 😉

    I want the Polar FT7 too! The Donut pan is so fun, you can bake anything in a donut pan and because it’s shaped like a donut it automatically tastes good! 🙂

      let’s cross our fingers that we both get it for Christmas 😉
