Color Me Happy Holidays/Gifts for teachers/boyfriends/Mom


Gift TreeNo matter what holiday you are celebrating, odds are you have a turkey about to burn in the oven, screaming children and a football watching husband, all while you sit atop a pile of catalogs and coupons with no stamina to brave the crowds on Black Friday, Oy vey.

doB takes a colorful cue from that string of lights.

Mckenzie ChildsIt’s not all Black and White. Gifting is hard, especially for the exhausted teacher or the decorating mother with a unique style.  Luckily, the luxury home furnishing company Mackenzie Childs takes delicate decor to a new level.  The Courtly Check Owl Ornament or Courtly Check Tree Plate are the perfect presents to prove you know this lady has class-figuratively or literally!

GodivaDads want to be treated too.  He always steals pieces from the box he gives your mom, so this year let him indulge from a box of Godiva’s Parfait Chocolates.  With an eight or eighteen piece box of these layered treats, from Mocha Almond to Chocolate Spice, these little Brown bits will melt his heart of gold.

Thursday Baked by MelissaDon’t be Green with envy when your boyfriend “splits” another dessert with you.  Baked By Melissa has a new line of chocolate coated cupcakes, In Chocolate, that is big enough to satisfy your guy’s decadent sweet tooth but conveniently bite sized, so he won’t know when you steal the cookie dough cupcake.

TastingRoomYour sister just got dumped and is truly Blue knowing she has to play hostess this weekend.  A little wine can make her feel fine.  TastingRoom.com offers wine samplers that let you try six mini bottles from Merlots to Zinfandels to samples curated by renowned chefs.  Best of all, doB readers can use the promo code doB1CENT to get one cent standard shipping until December 16, 2011.

Take that fiery Red passion you have for making others happy and become the brightest colored light in their lives this season.

Let there be (colorful) light!
