We all know shopping is therapeutic. For me it has a calming effect on mind and body. Sure it's nice to shop for myself but shopping for a gift is even better. We all know it's better to give than receive. The thrill of hunting for and finding just the right item for a friend or relative adds to the excitement. My favorite go to gift is very often a book. Food is a close second. I don't have to worry about size or style when I gift these.
What's your favorite gift to give?

Are you shopping today - online or out there with the crowds?



Need a gift suggestion? How about a book for your favorite chocolate lover (no calories). You can even gift it to someone with a kindle.

Autumn Harvest Blog Hop

AUTUMN FAVORITES



1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $50 Amazon or B&N Gift Card

The colors, the holidays, and street fairs are some of my favorite things about the fall. However, living in South Florida has left me with a craving for scarfs, boots, and winter jackets. I love  changing from the bright colors we wear in the summer to the muted oranges, browns and grays of fall.
In Chocolate Secrets Alex and Mike first meet at a NY street fair. She's selling gourmet chocolate and he's peddling  decadent chocolate cakes and sexy NYC firefighter calendars.
Another fall favorite is all the beautiful calendars for the coming year. Here's one of my favorites.
Check out the worthy cause these guys are posing for.
