KK's Favorite things 2009

It's LIKE the Oprah show. Only BETTER! (If by better you mean the gifts are WAY more creative and you won't get any for free)

I know you've all been waiting! After last's year's pure genius gifting tips Here you go...

Suddenly there will be no more trips to the dentist where he's all "do you floss everyday?" and you're all YAH! for SURE! EVERYDAY! And then he cleans your teeth and you bleed like an extra on Law & order. Cuz you WILL floss with this! (PS...now you know my secret to the starvation diet. I have the truffle and chili fries version too!)



I just think this is really sweet This is my Other favorite




SOAPSICLES! AND they DON'T DISCRIMINATE

SO cute RIght?


Also? This is a NECESSITY in SOME households. I'll use it as a GUIDE when I go home for Christmas.

THIS one is called "the poof." Be careful relatives...I'm on to you!





WHAT the heck is better than....GINGERBREAD YOGA FATTY'S!

(I'm pretty sure this is EXACTLY what I look like when I do yoga.)
(ps. I think the warrior 1 gingerbread man is a little light in the loafers if you know what I mean)
(pps. NOT that that's bad. Gay Gingers have their rights too!)
(although a TRUE gingerbread nellie would NEVER sport a pot-belly like that)
Anyway...
This site also has the cutest mini gingerbread houses. Most of you guys are pretty crafty...so this is more of an idea for you to make yourself. I, however would have to BUY them, else mine would be more of a mini gingerbread crack house in need of an EXTREME home mini-makeover.



For your inner stepford wife. You can wear this while you make your mini gingerbread houses....APRON

...OR this gingerbread MANSION/CASTLE/FORTRESS Bundt Cake Pan

I'd like to see the fruitcake that comes outta this bad boy!


For the Middle Eastern/American in your life? I just NEVER know what to get them. UNTIL NOW

Hmmmm....baseball cap? Turban? baseball cap. turban. Which to chose??? WAIT! I know!


I think this is the BEST idea. Also just fun. Now, if only they'd have a Sharipe monthly delivery! Oh well, we'll just have to useCOLORED PENCIL DELIVERY for now.



And for the writer in your life? (And by "writer" I mean like, "writing" the grocery list) WHo wouldn't want a SPACE PEN? WHO?! This pen was invented for NASA. It writes upside down, under water, over grease, in freezing cold, boiling heat, and in outer space! Gives your to-do list more TA-DA! (hahaha! I made that up. God I'm good)

Have a coffee lover in your life? Tired of giving them a mug? (cuz let me tell you they're tired of GETTING mugs)(I've heard) Now, THIS PRESENT would go even better with a brand new espresso machine plugged into it! It may be illegal to talk on your cell in the car...but It's not illegal to make espresso! HA!



Ah. Remember how we used to ride our bikes around the gated communityhood with a giant boombox on the handlebars, blaring New Kids or Morrisey? Well, NOW there's THIS And JUST as loud!! And don't worry you older readers, I'm SURE it fits nicely on a hov-a-round or a walker.

And don't worry...you can still LOOK oldschool



LOVE this product. For when you want to frame someone you LOVE....without the commitment. I mean, you never know when hubby's gonna forget your ben & Jerry's one night. It's a nice reminder that he is but a mere thumbtack away from extinction!



Ever cooking, say, spaghetti and you're all "I just WISH I had some fresh basil!" Well wish no more my friends. The answer is right at the tip of your fingers....or forehead. Gives a whole new meaning to "hanging plant."


We're all headed here anyway...so may as well get the lovely single girl in your life one to start her off. (THANK GOD they don't make a "crazy dog lady" one. phew!)



These are SUPER fun for decorating. My favorite is the "faux China" but I spent MANY hours on this site going through them all. I especially LOVE this site because it gives me ideas so I can pester my "vinyl machine owning" friends to replicate! (Dede...I'm looking at you)



Lookin' to Spice things up in the kitchen? Get it? spice? SPICE? chuck chuck. K, fine. I would get all excited about these. Just FIND me a lady who doesn't love a good jar/lid combo!


And here is some HOPE-IN-A-JAR! It could only be made better if it came with a side of nutella...hmmmmm...


Rain Rain....Don't go away....

Kris said...

What's up with you and Kristina both posting delicious looking pictures of soap I want to eat? You're messing with my mind.

kys said...

Great list! I love the wall decals, the soap, and the umbrellas, too. I'm giving everyone (except the kids) gift cards this year. Isn't that exciting?

I love the aprons. Thanks for the link. I think I'll wear that while I'm making the chocolate chip pancakes.

peewee said...

What? you think $600 is too much for pencils?! What. You still livin' in the fifties!? Pff. I spend $600 on colored pencils ALL THE TIME!

gingerbread yoga fatties, who could ask for anything more?

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Oh yeah, gingerbread warrior 1 is practically doing jazz hands.

Counselormama said...

These are some cute gift ideas, I love the umbrella ladies! Thanks for your comment on my last post. Sometimes I just think, "I got nothing", ya know?

CynthiaK said...

OMG, Ilove the gingerbread yoga fatties. Awesome list!

BTW, you've probably already posted about this and I've just been hiding under a rock (or bleaching my hair) but have you seen PeeWee making the talk show rounds? Show happening again? What's this? I'm SO out of the loop!!

Carin said...

How sweet is the advent calendar!? I love it!
