Juicer Gift

Metrokane Orange Mighty OJ Juicer
You might not be able to swing a sunny beach getaway for your personal trainer this Christmas, but why not gift her the next best thing?

A dose of DIY satisfaction and vitamin C, plus an endorphin jolt thanks to its happy orange hue.

Brain Quest Gift Pick

 

Workman Publishing “Brain Quest Grade 3″ Pack
They already know the capital of every state. And each state bird (show-off). They ask 600 questions about what makes the sky blue. Your mini me certainly keeps you on your toes, and loves nothing more than learning new things. So why not gift that little know-it-all with the same seriously fun brain teasers that entertained you as a kid? Filled with games and trivia that are a blast alone or with friends, this is one present that they’ll keep playing with for years to come. Or at least until they memorize the whole book.

Unknown

sofiacashmere Leopard Cashmere Jersey Travel Set
She tells it like it is, has a personality as colorful as her green JELL-O pineapple salad, and happens to be impossible to buy for. But this year, you’ve got it. Prep your cheek for that fire-red thank-you kiss, and then wear it like a badge of honor when you send your aunt on her post-holiday way cozied up in cashmere. Seriously, who can resist? And, because she has spunk and is not afraid to share it with the world (even while she’s sleeping), make it leopard.
