PERISHABLES THAT SHIP WELL
Macarons (French macaroon is a sweet meringue-based sandwich cookie confection)
I have to confess that these were on my bucket list. One Christmas I decided to get these and share them with my whole family. I got a small 16 cookie package. They were so fun and delicious. As I mentioned them to friends, I saw the same kind of enthusiasm and desire to try them! They are on a lot of people’s list of things to try that they do not get around to… what could make a more enjoyable gift than that?!? My mom didn’t even know what I was talking about when I mentioned them, but delighted in these cookies when she received them. They are baked to order, packaged beautifully and sent quickly. The flavors sent can vary by the package and the cycle that they pick. There is a wonderful assortment to try for each package.
This is one that I have given as a gift and gotten for my family. The presentation of the packaging is stunning. It feels fun and pretty from the moment you see it. The cookies are great and wonderful colors and flavors. The box is striking hot pink with a ribbon. It feels like a party. This is the middle ground on quantity and price.
You can always do the standards that have held up over time…
Flowers can be ordered from a local florist near her. You know her favorite candy or chocolates, I’m sure. What mom would not appreciate these, it would be difficult NOT to appreciate them!
THOSE THAT TRAVEL AND KEEP WELL
Why not get a gift that gives a fun assortment of healthy, delicious food or drink items that also keep really well?!? That is a big win.
Tea flower assortments
Flowering tea or Blooming tea is tea leaves wrapped around flower(s) that have all been dried. The flower opens and revives in hot water and create this unique tea at the same time. This assortment gives the opportunity to enjoy these teas and flowers. The flowers can be preserved a little longer in the refrigerator once revived. These flower teas can be very enjoyable in the Winter time when flowers seem even more special.
Quantity: 12 [Orange, Blueberry, Acai, Strawberry, Pineapple, Cranberry, Floral Sunset (Litchi), Love Reflections (Jasmine), First Kiss (Peach); and three varieties made with 3 rose flowers] and 36 [12 Heart-Shaped Tea Flowers, 12 Fruit Tea Flowers and 12 Jasmine Green Tea Flowers in 3 decorated canisters]
Dried fruit set
I really love this dried fruit set! It comes on an apple tray that can be easily turned into a cute basket! Contains mango slices, Mediterranean apricots, luscious California yellow peaches, mouth-watering pears, Washington apple wedges, and yummy California dates, tangy kiwi, 2 types of plums.
Dried fruit and nut set
The one on the left comes with pistachios and almonds as well as dried apricots, peaches, apples, pears, dates, plums. On the right we have dried apricots, peaches, plums, pears, dates and date rolls and prunes with large cashews and almonds
How did I come to love date rolls you ask? They often come in these fruit and nut sets. They are something special. I decided one time to get my mom just a set of the date rolls. She loved that too! Dates are rolled up with coconut in this wonderful treat that is even a healthy one!
My Aunt used to send us an assortment of different styles of almonds when I was a kid. I came to look forward to this traditional Christmas healthful snack food that she lovingly sent us. Nuts provide so much nutritional benefits with fiber included.
What I like about this assortment is that the summer sausage are packaged in several sealed tubes. You can consume them on your own schedule. These come with nice complimentary cheese, crackers, and mustard spread to go with them and all keep very nicely.
Charm bracelet with charms for each special loved one are a customizable and fun gift. You could get a great base bracelet and then pick out charms or beads to go on it at your local hobby shop that has a jewelry section. There are other options here as well… Pandora is the most popular and highly rated. These are silver base bracelets for around $57 to $85. The Pandora charms are around $30 and up. There are MANY compatible charms that are $10 and up though. Italian style allows her to add the pieces that are meaningful to her. These are stainless steel and the base bracelet is under $10 with links that are also under $10 and custom links for under $20 (includes medical alert ID charms).

COLD CLIMATE HOME
Traction cleats that you can pull over your shoe
I love these and they are now the best seller. These are the very ones that I got for my mom. No more worrying about the traction of the shoes she wears and taking a bad fall in icy and slippery conditions. The other thing about these that is very important to me… they are a design that will not be destructive to floors. This is a factor that can prevent her from even wearing them. It has no sharp points and is making use of your weight for grip. They are not expensive, so you can easily add them on to a gift you are already giving her if you like. Maybe this is actually a gift for you and your peace of mind…
The add-on water repellent hood
This is a design that I and many others would prefer. It is like a scarf with a hood shape in the middle. You can lay it over your head like a hood, not mess up your hair, and wrap around your neck like a scarf. I have one just like this and love it. They are not as common as you would think and a nice item to have when you want it. The outside is Acrylic and Nylon and the lining is Polyester.
This one is a fleece composite hood that is anti-static with an inner layer to cover the chin/mouth if you like. This is very versatile and can be used as a hood with lower face cover, scarf, mask, etc. It is Wind-proof, dust-proof, warm, and comfortable. This is the best seller with a very high rating.
Remote start/Keyless entry kit
Wouldn’t it be great if your mom’s car would start from her phone?!? She could start it up and warm it up from a nice indoor location. This also makes it easy for her to unlock without the need for her keys… Start-X is the most popular and highly rated… maybe this is because it is Brand specific. They are more affordable than you may think!

Car escape tool
I am a HUGE fan of this tool!!! It costs next to nothing… make it an add-on gift or a stocking stuffer, whatever… If you find yourself trapped in your car, say after an accident, this will free you. Modern cars have electrical controls for windows and doors that can fail in a collision, in fire, or underwater. This tool will break the windows (except the windshield). It will cut you free of the seat belt if it is jammed or pop the airbag that is confining you. This cutting blade design is recessed like the safe box-cutter designs. Make sure to keep it in a place where you can access it when trapped… like the door pocket or center console.
