Here is AGELESS WITH AUNTY’S 2014 Guide to the BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS EVER…..(in alphabetical order)
A friend came over for a holiday sleep over. I had on my red and green leggings. We sipped Christmas Tea from porcelain cups with candy canes, and watched all the Christmas Classics including Elf and It’s a Wonderful Life. We shared ribbon candy and sugarplums! However, the best part of all was her slippers. She only wears Acorn. I fell in love with how cozy and inviting they look. Now, I can’t stop dreaming of having a pair for myself. Take a look at these. They come in many color and sizes. I do hope Santa Brings me a pair. acorn slippers
BEANSTOCK COFFEE: HO HO JOES!
I WAIT ALL YEAR FOR THIS AND IT’S WORTH THE WAIT. I HAVE YET TO TASTE A BETTER ROASTED AND (LIGHTLY) BUT PERFECTLY FLAVORED COFFEE. These guys are coffee purists. The aroma alone is divine and worthy of song and praise. I wish they had TV commercials for this because I could write some great copy for them. But, even so, you simply need to taste it to experience this perfection in a cup. Ho Ho Joe is my all-time seasonal favorite….and best part of all, it was Aunty’s too! Brew some for your favorite friends, while you write out your Christmas cards, or make people really happy and just give them a bag or two for themselves. http://www.beanstockcoffee.com/
FRAGRANCE BAR OF NEWBURYPORT: Wherever I go I am always asked “What perfume are you wearing?” I just love to smell good. But, let’s face it there are just too many fragrances to choose from. So, imagine a shop where they will make a fragrance just for you. Or, make a much less expensive version of the fragrance you already wear. That’s exactly what the Fragrance Bar of Newburyport does (and online too). One of my very favorites (and I am only sharing with the readers of Ageless with Aunty) is the Fragrance Bar’s White Tea Fragrance. I have renamed it after my favorite movie White Christmas! And, for those of you who live in Massachusetts, the next two Friday nights the town of Newburyport will be having their now famous INVITATION NIGHT 6-9pm. It’s a perfect Jingle and Mingle along the old cobblestone streets. Highly recommended. Make sure to stop by the Fragrance Bar. Located on Prince Place behind the library. www.fragrancebaronline.com
And, while you are in Newburyport (going out of Alphabetical order for a moment) you MUST go to see Kevin at PARTRIGDE IN A BEAR TREE! This store is exactly what my mind looks like at Christmas Time…colorful, happy, and ultra Christmassy!!!!! I simply cannot say enough about this shop. Nowhere on earth expect for maybe the North Pole will you find more glee, joy, and AMAZING Christmas ornaments, objects, gifts, candles, and pure enchantment!! Depending on the night, people may stand in line to get in. And, I would wait all night if I had to. No one does Christmas like Kevin. He makes people feel so good, and you will make the people on your list jump for joy with a gift from Partridge in a Bear Tree. An extra added bonus: during Invitation Night they serve bubbly Christmas Punch out of a silver bowl! But, even without the punch you will GLOW out of there….I am all lit up just thinking about it!
