Yup, people love getting wreaths. It's the one present that I find people talk about the most.

Nothing says "Merry Christmas" better than a vacuum to point out your house is dirty.

Changed my life. Multiple copies going out for Christmas this year, especially to those I know eat a crappy Standard American diet or struggle with diet-solvable health issues.
Oh WAIT, this is better!!! Telling you your an overweight blob because of your diet is even better.



What happened to buying a person a gift that they would like and would want?

This would be a nice gift for the right person.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

Could you post the name of this, my dh is always complaining his feet are cold and this would be perfect.

I love my Le Creuset cookware and bakeware so I get my MIL some for Christmas every year (she loves it too)

My Tervis Tumbler was a WDW souvineer from my last trip. I sent it back when it developed a leak so water got in between the insulated part and they replaced it. I was worried they wouldn't be able to give me the exact design which said "Walt DisneyWorld" but they sent back the exact same one brand new! Great service.

Personally, I WOULD like the first two gifts and not the third. To each his own.

I had the outside metal one where you put the beer can in the middle but it was a pain to try and get the chicken off the thing. This ceramic one it is a breeze.... You just fill the pocket with liquid of choice and put it in a 9x13 pan with a little water in the pan and

love it...

No, the butter isn't up to the edge of the cup in the lid, so there is an air-seal between it and the water. It doesn't work in really hot climates.

We all have that person we just don't know what to give, so I figured I would start this in hopes of finding some great ideas. I will start with two things that I loved so much that I wondered how I ever lived without them, and ended up buying for a family member.

1. Swiffer Vac. I was skeptical and bought it with the idea that I would take it back if it didn't perform. Boy was I surprised! If you have dogs you HAVE to have one of these!!! My daughter's aussie produces as much hair as both of my aussies so I had to get her one

2. Electric foot warmer mat. For that person who works at a computer all day, warm feet equal warm hands!! (I'm a medical transcriptionist). I just bought my mother one who also complains of being cold at the computer, and my sister who just started working at home!
OP, PLEASE post a link for this! i work at a computer all day, and my feet are ALWAYS cold. this would be the perfect gift for me!

Thanks for posting that! I ordered it for our work gift exchange. I found it on ebay for $11.55 including shipping. I kind of hope I end up with my own gift!

If you end up wanting to get some, keep an eye on www.beallsflorida.com - they often have 25-30% off sitewide (today they're just at 15% off) and they carry Tervis. That is where I have gotten almost all of mine. They also carry them at Bed Bath & Beyond and you can use their coupons on them.
My parents winter in Florida, and my mother goes to Bealls a lot. I'll tell her to watch for them for me.

Any idea how to get the coffee stain out of them? I still don't know if they are BPA free. I emailed Tervis and they said the newer ones should be???

Anyone else find it ironic that it looks like you need an Open-It to open the Open-It???

It makes terrific hamburgers and grills steaks to perfection! This year I'm asking for the additional waffle plates to make it a waffler too.
Just bought one of these in perfect like new condition at Godwill for $14.99. I would love to know what all you cook with it. So far I've only made sandwiches! Great quality and works perfect.
