These are cool... literally. The little X's are trivets  to keep your hot pans off the table but are nice enough to serve off of. LOVE.

These gave me a laugh. I have no idea who needs these, but I would totally use them.

I adore this little XMAS ornament. My Mom once gave her girls a box full of gorgeous ornaments to help begin our own collection. It's still one of my favorite gifts and of course I use them every year.

For the person who has everything. Well then of course they need an Etch O Sketch with "10,000 dazzling, handset sapphire Swarovski crystals"  I am not adding prices to my gift guide, but this one just threw me for a loop. $1500. So then that begged the question "who is going to buy this?" I called FAO and the nice woman on the line said "We've sold tons of these, their great!" WHAT?? Well this is for you big spenders out there.

Who does not love themselves a wee bit of decoupage? John Derian does. He has made his fortune by bringing this lost art back to life. I adore decoupage and even have a few plates my Mom made as a child. These make great gifts.

To me there really is no better gift. For budding art collectors I always tell clients that photography is sometimes a good way to start. It's tends to be less expensive then paintings, but no less dramatic or wonderful. This is Bonnie Edelman, an artist The Summer House hosted several years ago and with great success. This is one of my favorites.

OH Good Lord, if you haven't had these ridiculously delicious croissants you are totally missing out. They come frozen, but take out what you want to eat the night before and next morning bake them and I swear you will think you in France. They are a little pricey, but who cares they are worth it. These are a great gift to send to people because they can use them over the holidays. SOOO WORTH IT!

These pieces are for the true collector of everything fabulous.

Twister Trax 253pc Glow in the Dark Flexible Track w/2 Cars

I found these one day when I was channel surfing and landed on QVC. First they come with 2 cars, an awesome glow in the dark track you can manipulate into different shapes and the cars run FAST on the track. I scooped this up for my nephew. 
These SUPER hard to find Metallic and Pewter Boa Snake HUNTER Rain boots  take this to DIVA level and I adore.

The best gift is giving to those in need. Heifer International is an amazing organization who's mission is simple "End Hunger and Poverty on Earth"
There are many way to help, but one of my favorite is to buy an animal or help buy an animal for a village. You can read about how those animals will contribute to making their community that much better. Plus you will feel awesome helping out. I have given ducks and a goat before. I am thinking pig this year...oink oink.
