Without a doubt, my brother was on target with my holiday gifts this year. I suspect he had an elf on my shelf to see exactly what I was doing and thinking at all times.
My favorite color - green - popped up in a really nice hoodie sweater. A lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio appeared. There were pounds of coffee too. And he got me a new coffee grinder - hands free, adjustable grind, and with a retractable cord!
But what I'm using most right now are two handle-less hot or cold brushed steel travel mugs from Contigo. I love them because they're ordinary useful items and they're just so pretty.
Each holds 16 ounces of liquids - and keeps them either nice and toasty hot or very chilly for extended periods of time. The mugs auto seal, no spills, baby, and have a nifty push-button to release your beverage of choice.
Plus, they're green and that's good for you as well as Mother Earth. Leak-proof, spill-proof and thermal. I'll never wear beverage stains again.
A set of two retails for $19.99
My brother is a pretty fantastic fellow.
