There can be no doubt that when the cool, blustery winds of November roll around, something touches our emotions that is more than a vague angst about the imminent end of another Earth year, with the attendant introspection about life cycles, and where we are in our own journeys. There’s also a warmth, reflected by the turning leaves, and an instinct to cocoon, both physically and spiritually; physically by the warmth of the fireplace, cup of hot coffee in hand, and spiritually, in the comfort of family and loved ones. It’s a time to be kind, and to appreciate those closest to you.
That’s when the anxiety of gift-buying kicks in! You know you should show your love by giving just the right gift (at the right price!), but it’s the choosing that causes those stress hormones to spike!

Below you’ll find some items that won’t break the bank, can be reliably delivered in the U.S. before Christmas, and, depending on who that special someone is, may be just the perfect thing to give!

MAX'IS Creations The Mug With A Hoop 16 oz Basketball Mug/Cup/Bowl
Moms, we know it’s hard enough getting the kids in gear most mornings, and having them engage in a little one-on-one action at the breakfast table may not be what you had in mind to get them out the door faster. On the other hand, wouldn’t it be great to let them start their day off with a smile and a little competitive pep? Or, maybe there should be a weekend rule with these mugs, but there’s no denying they look like fun! And let’s face it, it’s not just for kids - a lot of hubbies out there would get a kick out of pump-faking their cereal before heading out to work.
