10 Holiday Gift Ideas
there a better way to kick off the new year than with
a spin in a brand-new Porsche? We think not. The Porsche
Cayman S is a small, quick, muscular and road-hugging
sportscar. Be careful. It has bite.
BECOME THE CANDY BAR
What could possibly be sweeter than a sinful chocolate
bar or a relaxing massage? Combining the two, of course!
Spa at The Hershey Hotel offers treatments that probably
taste as good as they make you feel. From facials to massages,
indulging in chocolate has never felt this good for you.
PEACE OF MIND AT THE WESTIN
The Renewal Suite at The Westin New York at Times Square
makes it easy to leave the stress of the holidays behind.
Decompress amid soothing décor, exercise in the
comfort of your suite, then unwind in the whirlpool tub.
It will be hard to return to the daily grind after this.
With the soft glow of candles, these portable
little battery-powered lamps
are a safer and cleaner alternative to flames. And they
are sexy and modern in a '60s James Bond kind of way.
BARGING THROUGH PROVENCE
in the South of France by barging
from Avignon to Carcassonne. With a maximum of eight
passengers aboard the quaint Anjodi, the journey
is an intimate week-long tour of Provence. It's better
than a road trip, because your floating hotel takes away
the worry of finding nightly accommodations. Bonne
THE SUGAR MOMMA:
priciest chocolate in the world has a conscience. Tuscan-based
Amedei makes its chocolate from the rarest cocoa beans
on earth, and also assures its farmers are treated fairly.
Weighing in at over ten pounds, Alain
Ducasse's Grand Livre de Cuisine may look
intimidating, but once you open it you'll find that even
the novice can feel confident attempting the recipes inside.
Arranged around one hundred "basic" ingredients,
there is plenty to choose from.
A BIJOU OF A MOVIE THEATER
isn't the only town with cinema history. In San Francisco,
the Bijou Hotel honors movies filmed in the city by decorating
all of its rooms with movie stills. Plus, there's the
Petite Theatre Bijou in the lobby, which plays old movies
filmed in San Francisco.
TEA HERE NOW
Who doesn't need some help these days finding inner peace?
Here Now gives insight into using tea to live consciously
and in the now, and teaches that tea is a metaphor for
everything good in life: peace, balance, equanimity and
mindfulness. No downward facing dog necessary; just curl
up with it while sipping your favorite tea.
THE ICE BUCKET
more refrigerators or messy ice buckets needed for your
favorite Champagne. The Prestige
Champagne Cooler takes only minutes to chill a bottle,
and it keeps it at the perfect temperature for hours.
