Give Your Man Some LOVE!

It is almost that time to celebrate DAD…And with that comes the pressure to buy that perfect gift! Just remember it isn’t all about a material gift.

Sometimes its all about the little things.

Kisses are FREE !

All you have to do is pucker up and start kissing him.Head to toe…let him know how much you care.

Treat dad to breakfast in bed. Call me crazy but I do this almost daily (depending on my schedule) for my husband.  I bought a bed tray years ago from PIER 1 and it was the best money I ever spent and I got it on sale too!

Go to the drug store,grocery store or the always awesome Whole Foods Market.

Fill a tote or a basket with all things you know he will love and within your budget. They have all you need for that eco-friendly health enthusiast in your life. (My new fave brand for men is OLIVINA MEN). From wine,beer,food to shaving lotion to lip conditioner…this store has what you need.

Get him a shirt he will LOVE…Magna Ready is a unique shirt company you’ve gotta see!DSC_5895

Give dad a a bath. Fill a tub with Epsom salts and add a few drops of  pure essential oil like eucalyptus or peppermint or rosemary. Refreshing. I love the brand called Aura Cacia.

If you can get a baby sitter.escape and take him on a date. Nothing nothing date night. Surprise him and drive to the secret location. A yummy ice cream parlor,a new bar you discovered and more.

Drop him off at Massage Envy after you have prearranged an appointment  for a relaxing and fabulous massage.

Take him out for or make him a tropical cocktail at home and give him a foot massage with olive oil from your kitchen at home while he sips away.

D.I.Y. Make him a beard and mustache oil  that is if he has a mustache or beard. Did you know that hair gets dry and the skin underneath of it needs attention too.

1 ounce of jojoba oil

1/2 ounce of grape seed oil

8 drops of sandalwood essential oil

Combine all of the above and funnel in and place in an antique or medicinal bottle with a dropper if possible.Go ahead and shake this up. Include instructions on a sheet of paper on how to use it.

Use your imagination to make it happen. These are just a few of my ideas to get you going. Oh and of course a hand-made card or a LOVE letter would also be a good idea from you and one from the kids.Times running out!

Spread some love and enjoy dad’s day!

Pumpkin Pie Holiday

pumpkin-scrub-blog-photoI know you love pumpkin! We cannot seem to get enough of it.

Coffee,beer,muffins,bread,pie and more.So here is another one of my recipes for a my pumpkin pie body scrub in a jar. Pumpkin puree contains beta-carotene and anti-0xidants,brown sugar helps remove dead skin. Olive oil and a vitamin E pill (prick and squeeze out the oil) and OR use oil by the bottle add even more of the moisturizing your skin bliss.

1 can pumpkin puree (you’ll need 1/4 cup) Go for the real thing.

2  cups of brown sugar

2 tsp. olive oil or jojoba

optional:1 tsp. vitamin E oil

1/4 or 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (this will make the body scrub even more luscious and have the aroma of cinnamon,nutmeg and cloves). I like to sprinkle this on top!

Stir this all together and you will have an amazing scrumptious body scrub and wonderful for your heels too! It is like a pumpkin pie slathered over your body!

I like to make gifts in jelly jars for myself or someone else!

Add a mini spoon,bow,love note and you’re good to go.

Nice stocking stuffer or hostess gift add a pumpkin pie or a bottle of sangria to your gift and who ever you give it to will really love you.

Play and see what you come up with. I’d love to hear from you on any D.I.Y. recipes you might whip up and love too!

Candles are Magical Gifts!

FITZ CANDLEI found a batch of candles with a manly looking and aromatic twist I simply had to share with you! They might just help you check another gift off your list!

The candles are handmade and poured in sunny Jacksonille Florida by a gentlemen who wears many career hats! The candles are a soy waxed candle with a cotton core wick.What does that mean for you? A HEALTHIER candle to burn in your home or office and it burns clean…no soot candles or stinky smell.

Some ingredients used are natural fragrance blends of: Amber,sandalwood,cedar,bergamont,teak,rosemary,lavender,lemongrass,  dragon’s blood. The man you give it too may just be asking for more!!!

The candles illuminate with a beautiful glow and are designed and named by numbers.BATCH No.1, Batch No.2,Batch No.3 and not to be forgotten a Batch No.7.

The packaging is masculine and to me looks like a cross between an old apothecary from years gone by and with a bit of sexy.

Each season since his candle company began he curates a new scent.

Light up the men in your life’s world or even yours with the magic of a fragrant scented candle.

Where can you buy them?
