Ah, how this holiday makes me happy. Also, HOW are we already more than halfway through November? My favorite Babbleboxx assistant/fan is joining us again, as always, and with her best friend this time. Time for the unboxing!
How cute are they? They had just run a fall 5K before the unboxing and were in good spirits. Now let’s talk about the box in better detail. First, we have a Petlanthropy Donation Gift Card. How novel is that? I really think that’s the perfect holiday gift for the animal lover in your life. These gift cards bring needed care, livesaving and smiles to beautiful, local, homeless cats, kittens, puppies and dogs in need. With one of these gift cards, you can find animal shelters and projects you care about on www.petlanthropy.org and apply the value of the gift card to any local animal shelter project or donation page.
I chose Dakin Humane Society’s donation page for my gift card, because they’re local heroes. That’s where we got our cat, Juniper, as a tiny kitten. We love it there! Where would you donate? Check out www.petlanthropy.org for more.
Next we have Solid Gold! I got Superfoods Chewy Dog Treats with Turkey, Sweet Potato and Cinnamon, and Tropical Blendz Cat Food With Turkey and Coconut Oil. Pretty convenient because today is Athena’s birthday and she gets super awesome treats! Don’t forget your pets for Thanksgiving with Solid Gold’s new line of dog and cat recipes that incorporate ingredients from your favorite holiday feasts into holistic foods. Your pets will love it! Superfoods Chewy Dog Treats combine turkey, sweet potatoes and cinnamon for a texture, aroma and taste that are a nutrient-dense reward for dogs of all sizes.
As for the cats, Tropical Blendz grain and gluten free wet cat food is crafted with a balanced combo of wholesome turkey and coconut oil. It’s served in a paté form that can be served as a balanced meal, an accompaniment to dry food, or as a tasty treat! Solid Gold has a variety of wet foods and treats that are great holiday stocking stuffers for your pets! If you’re looking for grain free dog treats or grain free cat food, check out this discount here. Athena LOVED her birthday treat.
Yum. It’s available in six flavors. I got mine in Blackberry, Mint & Lime and it was so flavorful, I drank it alone with my dinner last night. I can see using it and other flavors in cocktails, mocktails and other drinks. Just plain chilled is delicious too! They’re perfect to serve with Thanksgiving dinner! Sipp Organics blend fruits, herbs and agave into a lightly sweetened sparkling beverage. Are you making cocktails this holiday? They will surely have a lot of flavor with these organic drinks!
Speaking of cocktails, we have an awesome book! Clean Cocktails for the Modern Mixologist by Tara Roscioli and Beth Ritter Nydick from Blue Barn Kitchen Publishing. Holistic health coaches Beth Ritter Nydick and Tara Roscioli bring a clean-living mindset to craft mixology. Pretty cool! Their wonderful recipes use low-calorie spirits, fresh juices, anti-inflammatory spices, and clean sweeteners like honey and maple syrup. Also, many of their recipes offer pitcher-sized variations that are perfect for holiday entertaining – and they feature innovative mixers like kombucha and iced tea. The Clean and Serene Mocktail has my heart! Find your perfect Thanksgiving cocktails and clean cocktails by buying the book here.
Last, we have the Edible Arrangements Salted Caramel Harvest Bouquet™ with Orange Swizzle Berries! I think Edible Arrangements® is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving celebration, especially if you want to hear your guests gasp. Not only is this product delicious and convenient, you can order last minute options all the way up to 11/22 (the day before Thanksgiving)! My bouquet included salted caramel apple wedges and chocolate dipped strawberries with festive orange Swizzle®. It also had playful pineapple leaves, a chocolate covered pineapple “apple”, additional grapes, strawberries, and cantaloupe, and a keepsake pumpkin container that can be used again. Perfect gift, centerpiece, dessert, etc.
