Here are some of our favorite goodies this holiday season:

Fine wine without breaking the bank –

What we thought:  We reviewed several of the items above and were so pleased with all of them!   The L.I.F.E. Line products so cute!  The wine bag would be a fantastic hostess gift.  You could stuff the stocking for a teacher gift.  The coin purse and coffee sleeve would be perfect stocking stuffers.  Everyone loves a gift that gives back and what a great cause!  The Kettle Corn and Shortbread cookies were a huge hit and disappeared between the four of us:)  I love the idea of the spice grinders...blends of yummy spices in neat combinations make for a super easy rub this holiday season and the Murray River Salt was great too!  The Allegro Coffee would be great to have on hand for those holiday guests.  Whole Foods Market is your one-stop shop when it comes to healthy foods and fun gifts this holiday season!  ABCD Diaries gives Whole Foods Market an A+!
