When a package arrives at your door you know you’re not hoping for fruit, you’re praying for chocolate. Send others something they really want: brownies! I was the lucky recipient of a box of brownies from Silverland Bakery ($-$$) today and everyone in my office agreed they were (past tense because we ate them all before lunch) UNBELIEVABLE. Best breakfast ever. Silverland Bakery makes all of their decadent treats in small batches and their brownies combine melted dark chocolate liquor and a layer of semi-dark chocolate chips. They also offer S’Mores Cookie Tins ($$), which I don’t have to even try to love.

I know you’re all thinking that it’s crazy early to be thinking about Christmas presents. But it’s not. Especially if you want to do something special. And special is what Custom Cornhole Boards from West Georgia Cornhole are! Perfect for a basement, man cave, backyard or fraternity house. Here’s just a sample of what West Georgia Cornhole can do, but they offer endless customizations so you can get creative ($$$$$):
They also offer these Plain Jane DIY Cornhole Boards. Get the kids to help you decorate them and you’ll have a truly unique gift that the whole family can enjoy for years to come.
Just make sure you get your orders in early so Santa has plenty of time before Christmas!

This weekend my husband and I were in Provincetown, MA enjoying some gorgeous fall weather, great food and good company. We rented a gorgeous condo (thanks Eddie!) and are totally in love with this rustic wood American flag hanging on the living room wall:
So, after a little Google-searching I found Rustic Marlin! They make these gorgeous American Flag Signs with customized images in a variety of sizes ($$-$$$$$)
They also make customized signs like these Marlin Classics ($$$):
These would make great wedding gifts, housewarming gifts, gifts for a nursery, holiday gifts…shall I go on? Check out some additional inspiration here.
