  1. I always look forward to your gift guide and this one does not disappoint at all. Thanks for including a lot of things that are reasonably priced.

  2. Yay for affordable gifts!

  3. Also, that end note.

  4. Thank you. I look at those lovely things, read about the makers, daydreams that may become ideas, mentally dogear stuff for later mindconsumption. I can imagine lovely scents for the face stuff and the candle. Gifts enough.
    I am with you. The future will definitely need to be more female but in the end it may not need to be too madly genderized, we can all be humans together, somedays leaning more towards our feminine side somedays towards our masculine, we need to work hard indeed, listening, acceptance, inclusion, patience, love.
    Best wishes.

    Hi Tim!

    Thank you so much for sharing a few of your favourite things! I love your posts and always smile when I see a Lottie & Doof link in my inbox! Looking forward to receiving more great info from you in 2016! We wish you and Bryan all the best for a happy and restful holiday season and all the best in the New Year!

    Love, your distant Canadian relatives :)

  6. I could not agree with you more about Living and Eating. It is a terrific book, one I would hate to do without.

    My fav cookbook of the year is The Food Lab. The easy recipe for delicious ricotta was worth the price of admission.

    I love ALL of this stuff! Thanks so much. I’ve already ordered a Fridge Rover – 2 actually, me and the hubs need one at our house. The boob rug is fantastic and the peanut butter things look TDF. Thanks for another year of sharing your joyfulness. Keep it coming!

  8. Your gift guide is always the best. Thanks, Tim.

  9. Thanks so much for this gift guide. Nice choices. But mostly thank you for the comments at the end of this post. Yes, we all do need to take part in making this world a better place. Have a wonderful holiday season. D

  10. I bought that ceramic Ikea pitcher in green a couple months back and I love it to distraction.

    Also, the reason the recipes work so well in Zahav has everything to do with the recipe editor, Joy Manning. She’s not getting a lot of credit for her work on the book, but she spent a year hanging out in the Zahav kitchen, taking notes, and then going to home to make it all work in a regular kitchen. Just thought I’d give her a little shout-out. :)

  11. Living & Eating…..probably one of my favorite cookbooks of all time. Not an easy one to find. I enjoy just leafing thru it . All of the recipes I have tried are spot on.

  12. I am a sucker for gift guides! And I love that you included Death Sex and Money as a gift to ourselves. I’ve been a huge fan since Day 1 and I’ve yet to be disappointed by an episode. :)

  13. Such a great list, Tim! I’ve had Mamushka on my list of bookes to buy for ages so might have to finally get round to it if it doesn’t appear under the tree – also, think I need to get to Ikea…

  14. I agree with the Aesop stuff. I went to one of their stores when I was in Portland this summer and finally understood all of the hullabaloo. I was able to afford the Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser, and I’m hooked. I’m going to pick up the Sage & Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream when I run out of my current stuff. Just to say, yes, it’s that good.

  15. I usually look at gift guides with the idea that I (as a normal income person) would never be able to afford any of the things on it. I was so pleasantly surprised by yours: it’s useful, affordable, beautiful and thoughtful things! Kudos to you.

  16. Thanks for this! Check out Anna Sale’s interview with singer Lisa Fischer on Death, Sex, and Money.

  17. Great list! And amen to the last paragraph — you hit the nail on the head. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the cunsumerism and (for lack of a better term) greed that goes along with mass shopping, it’s always good to remember the things that really matter!

  18. Loving Death Sex and Money. The corrupt cop episode! You’re right that Anna Sale is such a great interviewer. Thanks for assembling such a great-quality list!

    Ohhh, I just finished making the miracle kick ass peanut butter stuff and is it ever miraculous with a taste and texture just like Butterfingers. Easy peasy too. Many thanks.

  21. I’ve been using Aesop for years. As I have sensitive skin, I have to make sure that I can’t use anything too harsh or with too much parabens. Nice list!

  22. Cornell Florist, in Hyde Park, carries a wide selection of Cecile’s ceramics. Much easier than ordering online and hoping nothing happens during shipping.
