Present Sense Impressions: Gift Guides

In law, Present Sense Impressions are statements which describe an event while it is occurring. These posts contain my daily musings, like good finds on Pinterest, recipes I’m drooling over, and other things that I’m generally loving lately.  

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  What about Black Friday?  I’m just barely ready for Thanksgiving, and honestly I’ve never been much of a Black Friday person…more of a Cyber Monday person… because I can do that in my pajamas!  But just in case you are gearing up for Black Friday, I’ve been working on little Holiday Gift Guide on Pinterest, with several perfect gifts for the chef, home cook, hostess or food blogger in your life!

I had the pleasure of preordering this amazing Blog Planner designed by my amazing friend Phi... it is up for sale now, and you should totally get it for the food blogger in your life (or yourself if you are a food blogger) if you aren’t the lucky person who wins this fabulous prize!  (Giveaway now closed)Blog Planner Cover Close Up

This planner makes planning posts 1000 times easier and now I can enjoy using my daily planner again because it’s not overtaken with blog stuff!  As Leslie Knope would say I’ll be “Jammin’ on my Planner” for 2015!  Keep reading to enter the giveaway to win a free copy, all bound and ready for action!

I’ve also seen some other amazing gift guides and I’ll share them here!  My friend Phi (mentioned above as the amazing creator of this incredible planner that we are giving away) created a list of the Best Stocking Stuffers and honestly if I got ANY of those things I would be over the moon.  Especially the gold-dipped wooden spoons because y’all know I basically worship gold.

My friend Jessica from the Saucy Pear came up with a comprehensive list of 21 Kitchen Essentials.  Yours truly gave her the idea for a pressure cooker to be on that list because y’all know how much I love mine.  I also second pretty much everything on that list…especially the Flavor Bible because it’s my favorite book and I use it literally at least twice a week.

Liz at The Lemon Bowl made a Gift Guide for Healthy Foodies that I LOVE.  It also has a giveaway so be sure to check it out!  My other bloggy friend Aimee came up with this awesome Holiday Gift Guide and stay tuned because she’s having a giveaway later in the week!Order in the Kitchen Gift Guide
