Hungry Girl Today: 12.03.10
We've picked out our favorite items for all the special people in your life... Check it out!
For the 24/7 Kitchen Dweller...
Wilton Whoopie Pie Pan
Guilt-free baked goods make us wanna get up and cheer WHOOPIE! And wouldn't it be great to give someone a pan that can help them make their very own low-calorie whoopie pies? You could even print out a few HG cupcake recipes -- we've got vanilla, chocolate, even carrot cake -- to go along with this sturdy and super-fun baking pan! (Your buddies can just halve the recipe amounts and smoosh the frosting between the pie halves.) Sweet indeed!
Joseph Joseph Elevate 6-Piece Utensil Set
It happens all the time... You set down your spoon on the counter and it leaves a big splotch. Even if you have one of those schmancy spoon rests, that thing just gets messy instead. THE WORST! These cooking utensils have perfectly weighted handles; when you set them down, the part that touches the food makes NO contact with the counter or any other surface. Your friends' Formica will thank you!
Handy Cooking Guide Apron
Pop quiz: You're roasting a 6-lb. chicken... How long does it need to cook? Just consult this awesome apron! It's emblazoned with all kinds of basic cooking times and hints. Plus, all the info is printed upside down, perfect for reading while worn! It just might be the most useful thing you can give your cooking-obsessed buddy... You know, other than oven mitts that tell you if your muffins are about to burn. (OK, those don't exist. Yet.)
Matryoshkas Made to Measure M-Cups
Instead of jamming your measuring cups into your already-packed kitchen drawers, wouldn't it be nice to just leave 'em on display? YOU CAN! But how? WITH THESE! Measuring cups made to look like adorable Russian nesting dolls may sound like the kind of thing that only exists in an Oz/Wonderland/Never Land kind of place, but they do exist! And we think your pals would love 'em.
For the Food-Loving Fashionista...
We're HUGE fans of anything that looks like sushi, but comfy wearable things that look like sushi?! A-MAZING! The only dangers involved in giving your pal these slippers? Extreme jealousy (yours) and the chance that your friend will start showing up in public sporting them. Consider yourself warned...
Self Approved Tees (plus BONUS bundle!)
These T-shirts are super-cute! They come with positive maxims printed on them (we love the "Trust Your Gut" shirt!), and every purchase comes with a free month of online yoga classes from YogaVibes, a discount on jewelry from Energy Muse, AND a free copy of the e-book The Daily Love's Guide to Loving Yourself, written by HG pal Mastin Kipp. Plus, a percentage of sales will be donated to The Trevor Project. The usual price for this bundle is $55, but you can get the EXCLUSIVE HG discount price of $19.68 with promo code hg19... and shipping is FREE. (Offer expires 12/15/10.) YES!
For the Exercise Enthusiast...
Canyon Weighted Exercise Hula Hoop + Hoopnotica Hoopdance Beginning Level 1 DVD
When Alvin and his chipmunk brothers sang, "Me, I want a Hula Hoop," we doubt this is what they had in mind. But hooping is all the rage these days when it comes to making fitness FUN. There are a bazillion hoops and DVDs out there, but this pink 'n purple weighted hoop and beginner-level DVD from Hoopnotica look super-awesome to us. Your pal can get in a workout and channel her (or his) inner child at the same time!
At first glance, this item might not appear to be anything gift-worthy. But this is the kind of thing from which one can get a CRAZY amount of use! No pockets in those jogging pants? Pop your house key and a couple bucks into the zippered pocket -- in case of emergencies... like needing a latte. Then slide the elastic band onto your arm and walk or jog without a care! As for that latte? Skip the disposable cardboard sleeve, and slide this band onto your cuppa joe in its place. AMAZING!
For the Person Who Has Everything...
Sir Kensington's Gourmet Scooping Ketchup Mixed Four-Pack
There are always those friends who are notoriously hard to shop for. They've got everything, and when you ask them what they want, it turns into a drawn-out series of ummms and uhhhs and your-friendship-is-enoughs. We're gonna go ahead and bet that they don't have super-fancy scooping ketchup. The intense tomato-y flavor of the Classic is hard to beat, but the Spiced variety is in a class all by itself in the condiment world.
Project Angel Food Tribute Gift
If your buddy insists, "No, REALLY, I don't need anything," here's a way to do something fantastic in your pal's name: Make a donation to Project Angel Food, a terrific organization that provides meals to people affected by life-threatening illnesses. Fill out the form, donate, and your loved one will receive an e-card acknowledging the gift in their honor. The gift of goodwill ALWAYS rocks.
For Anyone and Everyone...
Hungry Girl Books and Recipe Cards!
Of course, an HG book or recipe card set would be a LOVELY gift for anyone on your holiday gift list! No surprise there. Choose one, bundle a couple, maybe pick up some fun item to go with the book -- like that Whoopie Pie Pan. There's a book that's right for just about everyone -- so make your picks, and utilize our awesome book site to find the very best prices. Spread the HG love around this holiday season!

CHEW ON THIS:
Friday, December 3rd, is National Ice Cream Box Day. This confuses us. We suppose it refers to ice cream that comes in boxes, but cylindrical cartons are WAY more common. Celebrate anyway with Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream!
