The Antisana Arrow Blanket by Ecuadane and Giving Back to Ecuador Natives

I have partnered with Ecuadane for this feature. Any opinions are my own

This Mother’s Day give a gift she will love that also gives back to natives in Ecuador. This Antisana Arrow Blanket by Ecuadane is by far one of the best gift ideas I have held in my hands. Not just because it is so soft, but because the quality cannot be unseen. It is not a bulky blanket by any means. It is very thin and lightweight for its size, but so warm. I don’t know how they do it! Plus they are made with eco friendly wools. Sustainable products are great to buy!

To sum up the features of this blanket and others like it (see more designs here from Ecuadane) I listed them below:

  • Ultra soft texture, lightweight and breathable, perfect for every season. It does not itch.
  • Versatile, great for the home, beach, camping, picnic, yoga bolster, decorative throw, or for all around comfort.
  • Beautiful vibrant color combinations and geometric patterns add the finishing touch to any space.
  • Carefully constructed with a high quality, durable blend of alpaca and synthetic materials.
  • Extra large: Approximately 93” x 82”.
  • Manufactured in the heart of Ecuador by native Otavaleños living amidst the Andes Mountains and volcanoes.
  • Wash by hand or machine on gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Tumble-dry at low temperatures or air dry. New Blankets tend to shed, after a couple of washings it will subside. Give the blanket a brush after long use or after washing.
  • Great gift for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and more.

Have you ever ordered something and when you open the package you just can’t stop ‘awe’ing over it and feeling it? You see it and immediately are proud of the quality in the look, feel and design all at once. That is what you get with these blankets from Ecuadane and I am proof because I experienced just that with my Antisana Arrow blanket. What is neat is that this blanket is named after a stratovolcano of the Northern Andes, Ecuador. So not only is it hand made in Ecuador by the native Otavaleños but its very name holds the same culture.

The blanket retails for $129.99 and the quality totally justifies the price! Shipping is always free at Ecuadane too. Make sure you head to Ecuadane.com and scroll to the bottom where you can join their newsletter that way you can be made aware of any specials they are offering! They are on Facebook as well so you can follow there too.

Fragrance gifts from your Favorite Stars of Empire – Fox

Thank you Empire of Fox for partnering in this feature

It’s Father’s Day soon. Do you know what you are getting dad or your husband? No? Neither do I. It is so hard. My Dad is pretty simple to please, but my husband is hard. If he wants something it is typically something big he will pick out himself. Then his birthday is June 9 so I try hard to not become lazy and combine the celebrations so I have to think of 2 great gifts in a 1-2 week period. This gets hard to find the perfect gifts.

This year may be a bit easier. With the new premier of the Fox show, Empire comes a cologne and perfume (because when we shop for the men we hardly forget to bring something home for ourselves). Legacy is the name of the men’s cologne that contains a blend of bergamot and lemon water with lavender buds, crisp geranium and clary sage. I am sensitive to some colognes and some scents give me instant headaches. I love this smell. I can’t wait for him to wear it. Just remember the Legacy of Lucious as you head gift shopping this Father’s Day.

While you are picking up his cologne and feel the need for a new perfume…because you are there so you might as well, Truth is the women’s perfume inspired by the lovely Cookie from this line you will want to test. Not a day has gone by that I have not chosen this scent to wear. It is a soft floral blend mixed with blackberry and velvet plum with hints of Bulgarian rose, vanilla orchid and violet blossom.

As you watch Empire on Fox you may think of the gold and sophistication of these fragrance bottles as a connection to the desire to go gold in music. The stars that have inspired us with music we can connect to are rewarded with going gold and most share that same swagger in their own way that makes us want to watch and listen to them for times to come. The essence of all of this is felt in the design of these bottles. These stars aim for making it inside the music industry and so you can strive to hit gold this year on a gift your man (and you) will love.

Available at https://empirefragrance.com, Macy’s and Bon-Ton. Happy shopping!

Saying Thank You with GourmetGiftBaskets.com

Thank you to the partner, GourmetGiftBaskets.com for this feature idea. Opinions are my own

Saying Thank YOu with GourmetGiftBaskets

 Chances are you know an Awesome Mom…or Dad, teacher, co-worker, neighbor, babysitter, volunteer, etc. Have you ever wanted to get them a Thank You gift and are left stumped on ideas? Gift cards are cliche and not with the most thoughtfulness put into the gift. Coffees and teas are good if you are sure they drink them. But, gift baskets remain a popular gift idea and when GourmetGiftBaskets.com puts the entire gift basket together for you including a personal message then how can you go wrong?

basket for Mom

First, I look at the basket! At GourmetGiftBaskets.com they get creative from using the base of a basket like above or colanders, buckets, platters and decorative gift tower boxes. Then you need to make sure that what is inside matches their personality. You can find baskets with wine, beer, meats, chocolate, candy, teddy bears, sauces, pasta, cheeses and so much more.

cookies for Mom

This gift basket that I am featuring is great for Mom (hence the mug that reads Awesome Mom). It is called the Happy Mother’s Day Gift Basket. This basket is all about teas and cookies. It includes: Awesome Mom Mug by Burton & Burton, Green Tea Garden by Davidson’s, Butter Rich Cookie Brittle by Holly Baking, Earl Grey Tea by Davidson’s, (2) Amber Rock Candy Demitasse Barista Sticks by Dryden & Palmer, White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies by Kimball Lake Bakery and Strawberry Tea Wafer by The Original Carlsbad Oblaten.

tea for mom

How adorable is that mug? No matter who you need to thank, you will find baskets and even care packages to gift. I have always loved the quality of baskets I have experienced from Holiday Gift Towers to Teddy Bears & Chocolate.
