1. For the outdoor girl (or guy, I guess). I have these gloves and they are my favorite for running, cycling, shoveling, you name it. They're incredibly warm, even without liners, and I can still have some flexibility while cycling to change gears. They did take some getting used to for cycling, but everything else they were perfect right off the bat!

2. For the teeny-bopper. Yes, I still consider the 16 year old a teeny bopper. Why, you ask? Well because if she is still a teenie bopper, then I'm not old yet - right? Got it, good. I bought her a blinged out watch, because who doesn't love something shiny!

3. Anthropologie Nostalgia Jar Candles - These were just the cutest thing in the store, and were one of the items I bought with no real destination in mind. I am so glad I did though, as I was able to split up the set of 4 and gift two candles, each with some tea, and a good book to two friends. It was a great way to give a "relaxing" gift, without breaking the bank! However, I may need to go back and buy a set for myself now too.

4. My favorite cookbook. I adore Alton Brown, and I got this cookbook for Christmas last year and decided to pass on the awesomeness to someone else! I very much enjoy the technical exact science of cooking, while also enjoying the flexibility of some recipes. This is obviously more the exact science, but I received such an education on so many things while reading this and cooking from it.
