A couple of awesome things I discovered this year-
My friends L and T are totally in love with this Canadian tea company called David's Teas. Our friend J got them hooked and now we can't stop ordering from them!
I know their unique blends, large selections and beautifully crafted teas will hook you too!
I may have ordered a very large box of tea just for myself. Merry Christmas to me! :)

I was in NYC last week and my friend C took us to this little stand at the Union Square Christmas market. There, I was introduced to No Chewing Allowed, a French truffle company. They also sell hot chocolate.
Yeah, I couldn't buy it all to bring back so I may have ordered it online. 
Just saying. Totally worth it for that chocolate lover in your life.

What are you getting people this holiday season??
Thanks for reading!
