Gift Impossible?

I have a holiday gift list full of impossible gift recipients.

You know who you are.

I love a challenge, so each year I tackle it enthusiastically…some years more successfully than others.   One of my strategies is to find unique things that I have never seen before.   I figure if I haven’t seen it, then hopefully they haven’t already purchased it.

Red Envelope gifts for the holidaysA few years ago I happened across Red Envelope.   I am sure it was in a desperate Google attempt to salvage my gift giving reputation.   Shhhh….

I made some purchases that year and am now a regular customer so when they approached me this year to look into their new holiday gifts, I couldn’t wait to shop!

Here are some of my very favorite things from their newest holiday finds:

Wish Ball Ornaments

These are so sweet.   They silver-plated and engraved with WISHES on the outside and then have the secret “do come true” on the inside with plenty of space to add your own notes {or in my case adding jewelry would be advised}.

The set is $29.95 and also available in a larger boxed set for $59.95.

I think they could easily be broken up and given individually.

Christmas Brownie Pops

A dozen oooey, gooey and downright adorable Santa and friends.

They are $29.95 and might be difficult to eat due to overwhelming cuteness.

Giant Gummy Bear

They are giant.

They are gummy.

You just want to hug them.

These overgrown gummies are available in three color/flavors and cost $29.95.

3-D Cookie Cutters

These might even inspire me to bake.   This set of twelve cookie cutters create 6 different holiday shapes in three dimensions.

Super cute and are only $19.95.

Winter Village Cake Pan

Instead of dusting off the Christmas Village you have in the attic, you can create an edible version that won’t require summer storage.

This cake pan sells for $39.95 and also comes in a larger version.

Year of Wishes Candles

Twelve candles with inspirational plaque with a wish for the month along with charms and wick-retrieving tweezers.

I love the rectangular shape and bright, cheerful colors.

The candle set is $79.95.

So which gift did I buy?

I can’t tell.


I will give you a hint and say it isn’t even one of these I listed…

It arrived in the mail a few days ago even though it wasn’t scheduled for delivery for another week.   It is a large white box with a red gift card attached, but just in case someone on my gift list is reading this, I am sworn to gift-giving secrecy!

Thanks so much to Red Envelope for sponsoring my shopping trip and this top secret gift.
