gift ideas: roundup of the stuff I actually use

gift-ideasI’M NOT IN A LIFE STAGE or lifestyle where useless stuff has a role (except to make clutter). I want service! In the guides below, I’ve rounded up some of the things I rely on, and trust. Click the green words to explore one category of goodies or the other:

  • cookbooks: Some new title have lately made my shelf, alongside classics by some of my most long-trusted culinary experts.
  • kitchen gear: Can’t do without my double-walled glass tea tumbler and electric kettle, my stick blender and more.
  • stuff for living: From my constant companion the Sangean wifi radio, to my hottest-of-all heating pads and brightest little flashlight, the essentials.
  • field guides: Essential keys to who’s who out there in the world, from lichens to moths, dragonflies to birds and bees and more.

    Love this site and all the great information here
    I recently bought Rishi Tea and was disappointed that their tea bags and the packaging they come in are not recyclable.
    The box is recyclable.

    So with this knowledge the tea didn’t taste very good.

  2. Happy Holidays, Margaret! Many thoughts and memories from Anne. I missed the
    new cat email…Is it available again? I totally failed with 3 different orders of
    that plant: Astilliboides Tabulares. Just died after losing leaves all late summer
    and fall. In the meantime I am ankle deep in leaves. My Portuguese Water Dog
    helps me rake! Best from Annielizzie
