Take Note! Notebook
With both lined and blank paper, a monthly calendar, a storage pouch, and 12 labels, this is a full-fledged organizational system for the busy mom. Add a sentimental touch by customizing the cover with a family photo.
She’ll cut down on plastic bag use and become a pro at whipping up a favorite comfort food for the next family gathering. This cute tote, made of 100 percent cotton canvas, is printed with a detailed recipe and drawings representing the necessary ingredients.
The pale blue of this candle’s hand-poured wax complements the Op Art-like swirls of the decorative holder. Three wicks ensure even burning, so you don’t end up with a hole in the middle, with unused wax piled up along the sides. The fragrant blend of hyacinth, white jasmine and tuberose–scented wax burns for as long as 40 hours.
