12 Days of Diva: Day 2


It's Day 2 of our 12 Days of Diva Holiday Shopping Guide! Today, we are focusing on Gifts for the Domesitc Goddess. When most people hear the words, Domestic Goddess, their thoughts go straight to someone who has the skills of a Martha Stewart. However, our bloggers, being the creative spirits that they are, have come up with some unique gift for your Domestic Goddess, whether she reigns over just the kitchen or all of her domain!

Gifts for the Domestic Goddess by Belle-Noir

Bed Bath and Beyond Gift Card ($25.00-$200.00, www.bedbathandbeyond.com) “I interpret “domestic” as someone that cooks, cleans, and entertains…and likes it a lot, but you don’t know what they have or don’t have already. I know some people think a gift card is impersonal but I like gift cards, it’s better than giving a gift they don’t like and won’t use. A domestic diva can shop in Bed Bath and Beyond for hours!”- Plus Model Chenese Lewis, www.cheneselewis.com

Stocking Stuffer Suggestion:
"Like Ross from Friends, I enjoy making a meal out of appetizers. Unfortunately, I don't know how to cook everything that I like to eat & don't always feel like searcing for recipes online or calling a friend. Bummer! (idea - Looking for ideas for someone that's new to the kitchen? Include a cookbook with a few ingredients for one of the more simple recipes. +Add a cute apron & set of matching potholders for good measure)."-Elle Denise, Stellar.Sassy.Social.
