Favorite Holiday Things....


First retailers promise to slash prices, then Oprah decides not to unveil her "Favorite Things " due to the looming economy and instead shared her all-time favorite gifts she's ever received. Even fashion/lifestyle publications are listing popular gift items for the budget savvy shoppers.

I love Oprah's idea and decided to share 3 of my favorite gifts of all time with each of you...
  1. My Barbie Swimming Pool, I was 8 or 9 and it is still my favorite gift of all time. It was huge!! It was so big it took up half the floor in my bedroom the time. I didn't care.... I spent hours and hours with my Barbies kicking it poolside. It had a deck, complete with a slide and a cabana. Whew, those were the days...
  2. A decorative pill case/eyelash holder, this is a funny one! My aunt Betty always complained to me that I was so difficult to shop for. She said I had everything ! She was well aware of my affection for fabulous gadgets and luxury items so she gave me the one thing in 2006 that I didn't have. We would always joke about my false eyelashes and how I would misplace them from time to time. (yes ladies you can re-apply them, the better quality ones at least...) The pill box was a snazzy pink adorned with an image of a black stiletto. That gift was soooo me. I knew she put some thought into it and it makes it rounds with me in my make-up bag daily.
  3. BabyPhat Goddess Gift Set, this was a gift from my daughter last year. Why was this one of my favorites? My daughter's memory is so good that she scares me. Earlier that year I mentioned in a store that I wanted that scent. My little fashionista conveyed the message to her dad and poignantly reminded me that I asked for it!!!!! That brought tears to my eyes...That she remembered and that she even cared......
