LOL, "Godwill". Sorry, couldn't help it.

I love this thread! I hope there are most posts.

If I can make a request, if possible, could posters include links to the products they mention.

Something I bought that I loved and gave to my MIL who also loved it and bought it for my SIL, the Ove Glove:

This should not happen, but it is nice to know that if it does, send the pieces to Tervis and they will replace it. No receipt needed. If it has their name on it, they will stand by it.

It is a scissor/knife tool that makes opening all those kid presents a breeze. It even has a little screw driver. It's our favorite gift to give.
I do not miss those days but could have used that! I remember spending almost all of one Christmas day opening those darn gift packagings & untwisting those metal coated ties while DH napped.

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.
We don't have a Cuisinart version but do have a big griddle with reversible flat/ridged sides and LOVE it. We use it mostly for hamburgers, pork chops, and pancakes. It is easy to use and cleans up nicely!

Fun thread! I can't think of anything new to add right now but I'll be thinking and checking back for ideas.

Another vote for the tumblers - I have a large one for my hot tea, and a smaller cold one (with a straw) for my water + crystal light.

The only issue I have is with the crystal light powder. It's all stuck in the crevices of the twisty top and makes it look dirty I suppose I could take a toothbrush to it?

I just don't get the appeal. ok, best thing is they don't sweat. but I hate ice in beverages watering them down. I am spoiled by using frozen mugs, there is no contest in keeping beverages cold.
welll yea, the frozen mugs sweat & drip....... a lot
but can't beat the slushy cold...

( we use coasters & placemats.. )

You could try reusable ice cubes? http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...p?SKU=16143944

I understand though. I love frozen mugs.

The Christmas Jar

The Christmas Jar book by Jason Wright. This is the best book!!!!! Everyone I have given it to has enjoyed it. A very heartwarming story.

http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Jars...+christmas+jar

I bought them in hard cover many years ago and pull it out to read every few years.

use a baking soda slightly moistened with water (paste consistancy) and just just rub it in the glass. it works on tea stains too and on just about any surface.

I used to give out the LLBean Personal Organizer travel bag. I kind of cut back because the price used to be much cheaper and they now have less colors- but I still love them!

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

Harney and Son's teas. I drink them loose but for other people I buy the silk sachets:

http://www.harney.com/wrapped-sachet-sampler-cube.html

Teas in little silk sachets are one of those really elegant simple luxuries.

We tend to go for little things and consumables - no one has room in their houses for much, and we've been fortunate - everyone in our family has what they need.
