FF: ScentSicles scented tree ornaments

FFH1I love a fresh cut tree. Living here in the evergreen forests of New Hampshire, the greens are easy to find and I have a real tree in the house. However, I also have some fabulous artificial trees I haul out every year. These “fake” trees are so good they look real – save for the smell. Add a ScentSicles and you can’t tell these trees weren’t just cut.

About ScentSicles scented tree ornaments: “We adore our beautiful planet. That’s why ScentSicles start with an all-natural, biodegradable stick sourced from sustainably managed American forests. We infuse them with nothing but pure fragrance. We keep everything close to our home and yours here in the USA, so our carbon footprint is as planet-friendly as our product. We end with the most authentic holiday fragrance product on earth.”

FF: The Cinnamon Walnut Coffee Cake from My Grandma’s

FFH2My mom was famous for her coffee cakes which were a staple at every holiday – most notably brunch on Christmas Day. Now the traditional can continue with the Cinnamon Walnut Coffee Cake from My Grandma’s – which makes a nice gift as well.

About the Cinnamon Walnut Coffee Cake from My Grandma’s: “This coffee cake started an industry. These cakes are unbelievably moist because we bake them using only the finest and freshest ingredients. After adding farm fresh eggs, pure Bourbon vanilla, and cultured sour cream, we hand pour and double layer each cake with cinnamon streusel. Our original recipe is baked with walnuts but you may choose a no-nut option below, where available.”

FF: The Christmas Notepads from Graphique Boutique

FFH4I also love the paper products of Graphique Boutique. In fact, a few of the Christmas cards I purchased this season came from their holiday collection. But I really like having a Christmas-themed notepad around to write notes and keep list during the season. The perfect notepad for me this year is Graphique’s Santa Bike Notepad.
