The 5 Best Housewarming Gifts, Under $50

Give something that makes a statement

It’s that time of year again–parties everywhere. The sun is out, the weather is great, which leaves nothing else to do but invite people over and some fun. It’s always kinda tricky what to take to someone’s home. You are unlikely to give them exactly what they want, the best you can do is give something with a “WOW” effect. The key to any gift is making a great first impression, that includes the gift wrap and an awesome gift, of course. I’ve compiled a list of 5 great housewarming gifts, all under $50 each.

The 5 Best Housewarming Gifts, Under $50

1.  The Dessert Gold Tea & Coffee Collection

I rarely fall in love with an entire collection of any kind, but the Dessert Gold Collection by Yedi Houseware, hits the jackpot.  Super modern, yet contemporary the gold collection gives gold glam a twist. Each set includes a grey, green, yellow and blue of each item. The desert plates are each half blue and half gold, half green and half gold, etc. You want a show stopper, this collection is it.

The point of a gift is to wow the receiver, and with something like this, you are bound to do so.

Healthy Cooking: Top 5 Reasons Ceramic Cookware Is The Healthy Choice

We are always looking for ways to cook healthier meals for our families and friends. Well, for those of you who read healthy cooking and your eyes sparkle, this post is for you.  Presenting the Healthy Choice Imperial Cookware line.  Coated with ceramic non-stick technology, the Healthy Choice line makes cooking easier and leaves you using less oil than with any other non-stick cookware.

Shhhh, this post is also dedicated to those who want easy cooking and spend less time cleaning afterwards.

Top 5 reasons Healthy Choice Ceramic Cookware is the best non-stick option:
5. The ceramic coating is PTFE and PFOA free. The high quality ceramic easy glide coating releases NO toxic fumes if overheated. 

4. Healthy Choice Ceramic cookware is stain, abrasion and ware resistant

3. The easy glide, non-stick coating is more effective than traditional teflon, which requires less oil for cooking, is easier to clean and easier to remove food.

2. It distributes heat more evenly and keeps food warm longer, which saves you cooking time.

1. It’s EASY TO CLEAN  -It’s harder to get food to stick in these ceramic coated pots and pans. It’s easier to clean them afterwards (use a soft sponge and a little bit of dishwashing soap with lukewarm water). So who can blame you for wanting dinner to be an easy task? You can volunteer doing dishes moving forward, since it will probably take less time than reading this post.

Our ceramic coated pans are especially designed to be ergonomic and easy to use. And with some of the lowest prices on the market, I don’t think there is much to think about. If you have any questions regarding the new line, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Happy Shopping.

The countdown is on: Passover 2012 is 30 days away! On the eve of April 7th is the first Seder and with that, Jewish families around the world gather to recount the exodus of their ancestors from Egypt over 2000 years ago. For many, it’s a formal dinner affair with beautiful table setting filled with good food, fine wine and beautiful tales of Jews in Egypt. 

During the Passover holiday, it is tradition that all leavened products in the home are removed, and a new set of dishes and cookware are used during the Passover holiday.  So, with that, here are some suggestions for your next dining and entertaining gathering and also some gift ideas on what to take if you are not hosting, but attending one of these lavish gatherings.
