The best selling cookie in the world is available in a cookie bouquet! Do you agree that women usually twist apart the chocolate cookie before eating them while men are the biggest dunkers of the cookie into a glass of ice cold milk? Although National Oreo Day is on March 6th, celebrate every day!

My Build-A-Bear Birthday Gift To Myself


I have been buying a Build-a-Bear for my daughter and mom but never to myself.  So, for a change, I decided to “gift” myself one of these precious little huggables for a change because I deserve one! Well of course, my daughter would not pass for the opportunity to get one for herself, albeit a tiny version of what I have bought.

Let me take you on a little tour on how my Build-a-Bear gift come into life.

It took me few minutes to decide on what to buy. They all looked gorgeous. Finally, the friendly staff directed me to a shelf above and pointed to this lovely bunny! I’m stoked and sold!



My bunny! Waiting to be filled…



Now, I’m left with more choices! Beating hearts, sounds, scented? How about the filling – fluffy, hard, or soft? Oh my!



Well, I decided to add a beating heart and chose huggable which is middle of being hard and not too soft. Huggable is the right thing!



After getting filled, I picked up a red foam heart, “whispered” my birthday wishes and gave it to the nice lady who stitched my huggable bunny.



After she was filled and all set for her clothing, she needed an “air wash” and a “blow-dry” in the Salon area of the shop so I gave her a good cleaning.



Now it’s time to pick her dress. Of course, I love Belle of Beauty and the Beast. Choosing the dress didn’t take long because I knew what is fitting for a “queen.”  I gave the staff her Belle outfit so she could wear it right away.


She is now dressed so it’s time to give her a name in the PC station near the cashier area.  After this, she is now to be called “Queen Hoppy!”  And the last stage is paying for her “majesty” and everything added to her, including my daughter’s tiny bunny which we called “Prince Hoppy.”



Okay, the damage in my “budget” was a bit shocking. Let’s just say I coughed out roughly $200 for everything. They are worth every penny anyway!



I’m sure that I will find myself in the Build-a-Bear Workshop soon to get some stuff for my little Royal Highness. :) Not only that, Easter is coming and they have new stuff to offer!

Romantic Christmas Gifts for Him


Christmas is a great time for family, but it can be a romantic period for a couple spending their first Christmas together in their relationship. It is a very special time making the effort to spend it away from family and with a new love in your life. One great way to really ensure it is the most special Christmas to date is to buy romantic gifts that can turn a great day into a memorable one. Here are some of the most romantic Xmas gifts for him you can find:

His and Hers Calendar

Photos showcase some of our favourite memories that we open up to look at on a rainy day stuck inside or when we need a good laugh. A great way to be romantic is to get a His and Hers Calendar made with romantic, funny and adorable pictures throughout your relationship. It is a great way to enjoy some great pictures together as a couple and is a useful gift to have as New Year beckons. Overall, it is about celebrating your relationship at a special time of year.

Spoof newspaper front page

Every man has always dreamed of having their name on the front page of a national newspaper for good reasons and now they can. This loving gift is a great way to show your new husband, fiancé or boyfriend just how special they are to you with this spoof front page printed with any words you choose to pick. It makes for a great gift to hang on the wall and make your spouse feel extra special with their name up in lights.

Engraved gifts

Engraving has become a hugely popular way of commemorating great days in relationships or special occasions. You can engrave anything from wine and whiskey glasses, watches, jewellery to an iPod and everything else in between. Choosing to engrave a special date or phrase onto an expensive gift will turn it from just a good gift into a great one with a simple and inexpensive gesture of love that makes all the difference to you and them.

Romantic gifts for men used to be hard to come by on the high street, but now with hundreds of online retailers focusing on niches in the market it couldn’t be easier to show the man in your life how much you care with a thoughtful, imaginative and truly romantic present.
