Coffee Lunch Coffee 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

Every year, by tradition, one of my favorite posts to create is my networking-focused holiday gift guide.  I’m especially excited this year as my recent focus has been on the Danish concept of “hygge” (pronounced “hoo-ga”) which is all about creating a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being.  With that, I give you my 2022 “hygge” holiday gift guide!

Luminara Flameless Candles. The fastest way to create a hygge atmosphere is to illuminate the room with candles.  In my own home, one of my favorites is my Luminara Flameless Candle.  These realistic looking beauties are made from paraffin wax and come in a variety of sizes, colors, pricing and other features to select from.  A “melted” top highlights the realistic flame that flickers just like genuine candlelight.

Penzey’s Hot Chocolate Mix. I love Penzeys’ wonderful products and this delicious Hot Chocolate Mix never disappoints!  Rich and smooth flavor, and hand-mixed from sugar, natural cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla beans, it is great made with milk, water or mixed into your favorite coffee for a luscious café mocha. Order a jar for a friend… and one for yourself!

LEGO Succulents. I have always enjoyed LEGOs.  As a child, I remember building a variety of creations with the big box of blocks my parents gave me as a birthday gift.  Interestingly, LEGOs are an important, meaningful part of my own son’s life, especially as a young adult.  Building with LEGOs feeds his creative nature and offers a tactile, relaxing experience.  In fact, from its website and in its retail stores, LEGO offers an extensive array of complex, high-end, pre-fab sets “for adults aged 18+ who are interested in sensory fidget toys, artistic pursuits or continuing to build their LEGO® collection.”  It is in that spirit that I am particularly taken with this cool, 771 piece “succulent” set which offers a reward build for display to enhance home or office décor.  Of course, there are many other options if plants are not exactly what you’re in the market for!   

SUPERiO Ribbed Storage Bins. I’m enjoying these stylish Superio Ribbed Storage Bins in my own office to keep my space organized and tidy.  Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, these stackable storage baskets create a professional look while providing practical organization home and office spaces.  Made in Spain, priced right, and featuring a high-quality polypropylene material that is BPA-free, the bins are stackable and slim enough to fit on crowded shelves, keeping your space organized and looking great.
