Gift Ideas for DIYers

If you’re here… you probably know this hobby can get spendy. And unfortunately, it’s also a pretty hard hobby to gift. Skiiers get new gloves, people who like cooking get swanky new knives, and people who like making lotions and soap get… odd looks. “4L of olive oil? Are you sure?” they’ll say. “That’s a lot of olive oil…” and then look at you like some oil-obsessed weirdo (and they probably aren’t wrong, let’s be honest). And so it goes. Hence, this post! If you need gift ideas for a friend who loves DIYing, or suggestions for people asking you for gift ideas, this should set you up.

Deodorizing Yoga Mat Spray

I’ve been stepping up my yoga game over the last year or so, and I’m thrilled to notice I’ve gotten stronger and more flexible, and can now do a few things I thought were impossible a year ago. As I’ve gained muscle mass, though, it would seem my yoga mat has started to gain a small, stinky ecosystem. Oops. Time to evict that, pronto—bring on the Deodorizing Yoga Mat Spray!

Recipes & Ideas for Spring Cleaning

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that it’s finally warm out. It’s supposed to be 28°C (82°F) tomorrow! That’s amazing! That’s nearly double the average temperature for this time of year, which is to say spring has sprung decidedly early for this part of the world. My tulips started coming up in early March, I had to mow my lawn before April was out, and I’ve already earned my first sunburn (oops). All this warm weather and these sunny breezes are making me think about freshening up my house and my wardrobe, and while I’m no Martha Stuart, here’s what I’m doing these days.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Expectant Moms

Mother’s Day is around the corner, so I thought I’d dive back into the archives and share some ideas for homemade Mother’s Day gift ideas for expectant moms (first time or otherwise!). There’s loads of gift ideas out there for ladies who already have kids, but I wanted to give a nod to women who have one in the oven—this last Mother’s Day before they give birth is a funny little middling period worthy of a bit of celebration.
