Holiday gifts, costumes, and craft night!

Ask the Yenta

Dear Yenta, I know it’s early, but I’m already working on Christmas/Hanukkah gifts for my boss.  He usually gives the same fruit basket every year and this year he wants something different.  The price point is around $50 and presentation is key!!  Any Ideas?”

Paulette Macrarons (Bev Hills) – assorted colorful flavors – gorgeous!

The Cookie Sandwich Company (San Diego) – feels likes it’s homemade!


Peanut Butter and Co. (New York) – you can send a package of six plus their cookbook – who won’t love that!?! It’s perfect for families with kids.

John and Kira’s (Philly) – check out the chocolate figs!

Skinny Skinny (Brooklyn) – a set of organic soaps in a beautiful eco-friendly box that looks like a book!


Elegant Cheesecakes (Half Moon Bay, CA)– they are works of art – insane!


“Dear Yenta, I’m looking for plus-size Halloween costumes that are actually good-looking – HELP!”

I think this site has some awesome options – for everyone – men, woman, teens, toddlers, even dogs – and their prices are fantastic!

TR Knight + PARADE = Must-see theater!

Monday, October 12, 2009

I saw the musical, Parade, on Sunday at the Mark Taper Forum. I don’t think I can fully communicate what an incredible experience I had. This was one of the all around BEST shows I have ever seen. I had goose bumps throughout the entire show!
