fathersdaygiftguide15Can you believe Father’s Day is this weekend?  Where has June gone?  If you’re like me, you’re wracking your brains to come up with a gift for your Dad.  My Dad is tough because he buys everything he wants and he never “wants” anything.  Coming up with something he’d like is tricky but this year I have a couple of good ideas.

1. Hot Stuff Taster  $65.00  My Dad LOVES anything spicy.  While spicy food doesn’t agree with him, he doesn’t let that deter him.

2. Retro Radio $71.00  Every morning, my Dad listens to NPR on the radio.  I love this cute retro radio and it will look good on the counter.

3. Freshie’s Margarita Mix $7.99  Frozen drinks are a must at the beach house.  Lately, my Dad’s been on a Margarita kick and Freshie’s is the best mix out there.

4. Oggie Stainless Steel Double Walled Tumbler $14.99  If you’re drinking frozen margaritas at the beach, you want to keep your drink cold (and hidden!).

mothers-day-gifts-2015

Mother’s Day is two weeks away (!?!) I’m already thinking about gifts for my Mom.  This year I found a couple of fantastic options.  Adorable bedding from Serena & Lily.  Cute but comfy shoes for her upcoming anniversary trip.  Of course, baubles are always welcome in the Angotti household!

valentine2015

I know this is a laaattte post for Valentine’s Day considering it’s Saturday.  Life has been crazy and I’m behind.  Although every fellow is different, my guy would love any of these Valentine’s Day gifts.

1.  I’ll take a Manhattan $120.  Have you checked out the website Mouth?  I’m kinda obsessed with it.  It has small batch booze, fancy chocolates and spreads plus snacks.  The SNACKS.  For my husband, this Manhattan gift pack would be pretty cool.  It’s his latest cocktail craze and those cherries look yummy.

2. Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator $299.  One of our friends contributed to the Kickstater fund for this bad boy and gave one to my husband for Christmas.  He LOVES it.  I thought it’d be one of those gadgets that he never uses but he pulls it out at least once a week.  It cooks everything perfectly. If your guy likes to cook, this should be on his list.

3. Slim leg sweatpants $49.50.  My husband works from home.  His go to uniform is a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt.  I love this slim leg sweatpants because they don’t look sloppy and they fit.  I know many men prefer the “over sized” look but I don’t.  Surprisingly, my husband really likes his.  The down side: a lot of jokes about “how tight they are on his manly calves.”  Um yea..that conversation happens regularly.

4. Pappy Bourbon Balls $11.00 (4 pack)  This is probably my best discovery of the year.  Salt & Sundry on 14th had them in stock last week (call ahead) and I got 2 boxes for a dinner party. They are out of this world delicious and were a huge hit.
