Our Favorite Things 2014

The 4Broads are trying to give you a little lead time this year!  We have to honestly say we still recommend and stand by everything on last years last minutelist  but felt there are a few stocking stuffers you might still need some help with!  So we have come up with a few new  things to add to that awesome list of gifts from last year.

Massages never get old!

Don’t forget your Furbabies!

Luxe Faux Fur Pet Vest –  Who wouldn’t like to wrap their favorite pet in Luxury  and warmth this season?  We might just have to buy my smallest pal one of these.

Bully Sticks from Pet Stuff – Be sure to buy the ODOR FREE.  Mary’s big dogs eat them too fast but the little guy is on them forever. It keeps him busy and out from under Mary’s feet. (for a short while anyway)

 Uggs Headphones

We kid you not, for the cold weather music lover who has everything Austraila Women’s Ear muffs with ear phone techology.

Candles Never get old

Mary’s favs are Stress Relief for everyday and Fresh Balsam for the Holidays.  Enjoy, oh wait they are supposed to be gifts!

You must be hungry from all this shopping so stop and snack now!

Or if you are simply out of ideas foodstuffs make great little gifts too!

Sandamiri Products  – Crackers without GMO or trans fats and cholesterol free.  I pair them with the product below and they are delish together.

Muffuletta Salad from New Orleans – great with Sandamiri crackers.  Wonderful for holiday get-togethers.  I like to keep it in the pantry.  You can buy it in almost any store that sells olive mixes.

and some Artichoke Bruschetta..  all of these would pair nicely with those Jaime Laurita wines up at the top of the list….there done!

Now, for the warm and fuzzy things that don’t cost anything…..

Reminiscing of past Christmas’s and those loved ones no-longer with us.

Donate a little bit more this time of the year for those less fortunate.

Some well-needed VEGGING time, snuggling on the couch wrapped in an afghan, watching holiday movies

Sleeping in

Spending some “quality” time with my kids, doing whatever THEY want to do.


Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
