Cooking With Copper!
Copper is a great conductor of heat and therefore chefs love cooking with copper. However, they don’t love having to clean and polish them.
Give that special someone who loves to cook (or needs to cook) Anolon Nouvelle Copper Luxe cookware by Meyer. The hard anodized aluminum pans have an induction plate with copper in the mid layer.
These pans are substantial and can be used on any stovetop.
The pans are also oven safe to 500 degrees and dishwasher safe.
Anolon makes these pans durable, built to last. Double-riveted, cast stainless steel handles make it easy to grip.
The flat Unity Surface® flush rivets don’t attract food buildup and to help get out of the kitchen faster, there is a PFOA-free, cadmium and lead-free nonstick interior for easy cleanup.
The full set of 11 pieces of Anolon Nouvelle Copper Luxe cookware retails for about $400. If that’s too grand a gift for your budget, you can give that special person a chance to sample this superb cookware with a twin pack of French skillets 8.5″ and 10″ ( *srp. around $50).
Do you believe in the healing power of gemstones? Even if you don’t, these stunning candles by Minnie Park that I found at a TravelMedia event in NYC with therapeutic grade aromatherapy oil, will calm the senses.
The candles are handmade in small batches in NY, featuring healing energy gemstones embedded right into the top! They’re vegan, dye and toxicity free with re-useable glass votives.
There are three different types (lavender, bergamot, and mint) as you can see in the photo above. .My sample was amethyst with lavender aromatherapy oil.
Lavender is known for it’s calming properties, and also good for stress, anxiety, and depression.
Amethyst gemstones are not just pretty, they represent and reinforce passion and creative drive.
Two batches of these special edition candles have already sold out but Minnie Park’s E-commerce shop (www.byminniepark.com ) should be online now.

Ayesha Curry’s Beautiful Bakeware:
The Advice Sisters suggested Ayesha Curry’s heart-shaped baker last Valentines’ Day to wow a special someone with that special dinner (read our advicesisters.com review).
For the holidays, red is still the right holiday color. Treat yourself or that special someone to an Ayesha Curry 9″ x 13″ (microwave and freezer-safe) stoneware baker (it’s just $30 and also is available in teal, and vanilla).
Ayesha Curry Signature:
Ayesha Curry stoneware features a stain-resistant glazed finish with a signature Ayesha Curry signature heart logo, subtly embossed around the entire pan.
I’m calling this baking dish “the cats meow.” My beautiful cat Nike wouldn’t leave the baking dish alone as I was photographing it and wanted to curl up in it.
We’re not suggesting you buy it for a cat bed! But seriously, even if your special someone owns a baking dish, they don’t have one like this — beautiful, sturdy, and bakes to perfection.
