It’s September, friends! Finally! It’s my favorite month of the year – and not just because my birthday’s fast approaching (though that definitely helps). September always feels like a season of possibility. Leaves change, the air takes on that delicious chill, kids are locked back in their cells for another nine months, and the world feels like it makes a bit more sense.

Happy Friday, friends! I think I’m suffering from Sympathetic Hurricane Syndrome…I’ve spent all week in a weird, quiet funk, hunkered down and not really in the mood to shop. Which is fine, as it turns out, because the only emails I’ve gotten this week are from stores and brands letting me know they’re still not able to ship. But I’ll tell you what I do know: I heart NY.
So. What to do with yourself while you’re holed up at home? I’ll tell you.
at first glance, the gourmand might look a bit like a martha’s apprentice, but don’t be deceived. this girl doesn’t care a bit about how glam her house looks for the holidays, or whether her ‘winter fir’ candle blends perfectly with her cinnamon-scented pine cones. no, this is the friend that only has eyes for the holiday’s best eats. she knows her himalayan pink from her smoked gray sea salt, swirls her wine with finesse, and welcomes her “food snob” label with a smile.
if you’re stumped for stocking stuffers this year (or every year, as i am), here’s a list of a few goodies sure to make santa very popular on christmas morning! incidentally, these also work very nicely as last-minute, low-cost gifts for all of those people you accidentally forgot to buy for. if i were smarter, i’d follow my own advice from last year, and have a few of these on hand for gifting emergencies.
