33 Eclectic Finds, Silly Quotes & Sweet Gift Ideas
Adult Jigsaw Puzzle
I’m rather hopeless when it comes to puzzles, but everyone else in my family is brilliant. This sweet, 1,000 piece Carl Larsson example above would be beautiful to display! Larsson’s watercolor painting “Crayfishing” is one in a series titled Ett hem (A Home), which was published in book form in 1899.
If you would prefer something simpler, this 500-piece puzzle forms a 24″x18″ art piece, and since I grew up with this framed print in our home, it holds special meaning.
In fact, if you are a fan of Larsson’s art, here is a wonderful way to add an instant collection of prints to frame for a friendly price:
Prime Time for Prime!
If you have an Amazon Prime Membership, you already know how many amazing benefits there are to reap. But keep reading in case you have more to learn!
Prime is indeed not just about fast and free shipping anymore.
Membership is also video access to thousands of movies (Troop Zero, The Farewell, Bumblebee), TV shows (Jack Ryan, Hunters, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Fleabag, Chicago PD, House, Parks and Recreation), new music and new books.
(BTW, here are the books Amazon thinks I may enjoy…books by Teilhard and Annie Dillard? Yes, please.)
Love to Read But Eyes Get Tired?
Bidet (Installs in 10 Minutes!)
If you have ever considered adding one, maybe this will intrigue. I mean, there’s CLEAN BEAUTY and then there’s CLEAN BOOTY, OUI? TUSHY is a delightful source (tap this next image and visit their happy happy site!) of clean booty things.
Contemporary Language Bible
Even though I grew up on it, there was a season of my life where I only cracked open my dust-collecting bible if I couldn’t sleep. It took years to truly appreciate it. Do you like this translation?
Gorgeous Linen Loungewear
Because linen. And lounging.
Produce Delivered to Your Door
So much of modern life is confusing, stressful, and unwanted; yet there are conveniences we probably never dreamed of just a decade ago.
When you can’t visit the grocery store or simply choose not to, you can still have access to fresh produce (for someone like moi on a restricted diet, that’s a small miracle).
Services like Daily Harvest bring the goodness to you.
Here’s How Simple Smoothie Making Can Be
A Book if You’re Struggling
This is my all-time favorite story, and I love sharing it with others. The Little Tern is the enchanting story of a bird who one day discovers he has lost the ability to fly. Beautifully illustrated by Lisa Mann Dirkes, this modern fable by Brooke Newman points to finding hope in disappointing or frustrating circumstances.
DIY With Clay
If it has been some time since you have worked with clay, maybe this quieter chapter is just right for re-visiting the medium. Ever tried the air dry variety?
What will you make?
Here’s an idea:
Even though they are not my idea of relaxing, these look fabulous!!!
Possibly the BEST Gift Idea (and you may be surprised at the low price despite the orange box!)
Did I just stumble upon the perfect birthday or holiday gift? That orange box!
I think we all know someone who would appreciate one of these!
Try On Lenses at Home
The Warby Parker Home-Try-On program is an amazing way for anyone to choose 5 pairs of glasses (or sunglasses) to try on at home for free! Then you have 5 days to take the frames for a spin before sending them back. Readers can also take a style quiz to find their perfect pair based on their face shape, color/style preferences, and more!
If you’re tethered to your screens and devices, a blue light filtering option for lenses may help. They filter more blue light than standard polycarbonate or high-index options.
Add them to any frame, with or without a prescription, for $50.
Flexible Stand for Your Phone
I need this for a variety of reasons!
Paint Color Fan Deck
There is still a whole lotta home improvement going on across the country, and if you’re like me, you have endless paint touchups and rooms to repaint. This deck can be helpful for choosing paint colors or paint samples when you want to minimize your time at the paint store.
Try New Healthy Recipes
This book is AMAZING, and the author, Sarah Britton, is a creative genius in addition to being a stellar blogger and nutritionist. (Her recipe inspired my go-to, no-flour, no-knead bread!)
Play With Makeup
Whether you are still working from home and busy with Zoom conferences, FaceTime sessions, and virtual meetings or simply want to look your best, here are some fresh finds I discovered.
I love it because it gives me that glass-skin look when I want it but doesn’t leave me looking like a disco ball.
Here’s another find…a lip and cheek tint that is divine and natural. I use it everyday!
Here’s the mascara from MILK that I have been using as well.
Makeup sticks are still all the rage, and some of them can be pricey. This one is inexpensive and looks promising…
Soap from France
Bamboo Soap Dish
I don’t know about you, but my energy aint what it used to be. When I can get my protein from plants, it’s a good thing.
Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrushes
Daily Tools of the Trade
Good brushes for scrubbing dishes and pans are such a help, and especially now with more dishes to do daily.
My favorite bath mat here at home has a border of linen, but this handmade one is ALL linen.
Lounge-wear is very much a comfort these days, and I love me some French terry, so these are calling my name.
