BigDogMustHaves

Big dogs are great. They are your companion and friend. These are some ideas for things that make life easier for both of you.

Pamper your pet this holiday season. Here is a selection of items that would make great gifts for anyone with a large dog.

  1. Bandana Collection – Big dogs don’t wear costumes, but they’ll wear bandanas! Get this Super Pack to have one for every occasion at Walmart.
  2. Dog Frisbee – What a great way to spend time with that big dog and tire them out for the evening. This great Zisc can be found at Abe’s Market.
  3. Chew Ball – Better known as the Green Ball. Tough as a Kong, but softer, with a place for peanut butter or treats. Buy it now at Petsmart.
  4. Wooden Dog Feeder – Help them eat and digest, by raising their food bowls, while helping with the decor. From Wayfair.
  5. Spirit Essenses -Essential Oils for pets! This is the Peacemaker Set. Check out all the other selections at Abe’s Market online.
  6. Large Rope Ball – One giant knot of rope. Solves the body’s need to chew and the brain’s need to unravel. Get one now at Petsmart.
  7. Chicken Pot Pie Training Treats -They’ll learn anything for the ultimate treat – Chicken Pot Pie might do the trick! Find them at Abe’s Market.
  8. Large Corner Pet Bed – Fits in the corner, has bolster sides, comes in blue or green. Put that big dog out of the traffic, but with a place to call his/her own. Get Organized carries this unusual bed.
  9. Water Trapper Mat – Winter is coming! Snow, ice and rain mean water, mud and dirt coming in the house on those big paws. These mats are a must to save your sanity if clean floors are a priority and are now carried at Orvis.
  10. Reflective Collar -It’s getting dark earlier and earlier. Make sure everyone sees you both on those winter night walks. Order from Orvis and personalize with name and number.

Cooking Essentials For Your Thanksgiving Feast! #BBNshops

13 things you might not have known you needed for Thanksgiving. Rely on
restaurant secrets to furnish your Thanksgiving kitchen without breaking the bank, add style and utility all at once.

All these items are essential kitchen helpers for your Thanksgiving Day feast.  Any of these will make you feel like an expert chef while you make your Thanksgiving Day dinner. These will help anyone in the kitchen so check these out and order them in time to use them for this year’s Thanksgiving meal!  Having the right tools will make it easier, faster and much more delicious.  Why not make this Thanksgiving Day’s meal easier on you and more impressive on you guests?

  1. Pink Chocolate – By the time 4pm dinner comes around, you’re going to wish you were wearing something more stylish than the crumped cook’s apron you picked up 5 years ago at the hardware store. You may not want to take this pink and brown number off to eat! Also available in brown and blue, and brown and lime green. Buy it here.
  2. Butcher’s Twine – Trussing your turkey is a great way to keep it moist. Get it here.
  3. 2-Qt Induction Ready Stainless Steel Saucepan – You might think you have enough. But what if you are simultaneously boiling water for potatoes, cooking peas, reheating gravy, and making stock from your turkey innards? What then? No worries. Restaurant supplies to the rescue. Buy now, use for years.
  4. 7-Inch Stainless Steel Potato Masher – Never, ever, ever try to mash your potatoes in a mixer or food processor. That said, using a fork will dampen holiday spirits in no time flat. This masher has an ergonomic handle, and lots of mashing surface to make quick work of your potatoes. Get your masher here.
  5. Taylor Roast Meat Thermometer – Don’t even mess with wing wiggling. Insert this meat thermometer into the thigh of your bird. You’re done when temperature reaches 165 degrees. Find it here.
  6. Rosie Spiral Whisk – That gravy you’re responsible for? Afraid of lumps? You will want to whisk as you add liquid, and if you make gravy in your roasting pan – which is really the best method – a flat whisk like this can mix in every last bit of pan dropping goodness much better than the vertical whisk you probably already have. Check it out here.
  7. Silicone/Cotton Pot Holder and Trivet – In case you’ve taken off the mitts, because we all do, and you need to grab a pot handle, or set something hot down on a surface that needs protection. Buy it here.
  8. 15 inch Stainless Roasting Pan– Stainless steel is far better than aluminum for roasting pans, and, contrary to popular opinion, non-stick is the wrong choice. You won’t get a good base for gravy-making unless your drippings stick and caramelize. Make sure you choose a pan that will fit your turkey, with enough room for air circulation, but not so much space that the juices spread out and burn in the pan. Check it out here.
  9. Ultra Flex Kitchen Oven Mitts – Thanksgiving is prime burn time. Go all out on protection when you’re reaching into that hot oven, and across that hot stove. Don’t get burned!
  10. Pie Cutter – Cut at the table, with a bit of hey presto! and this one-touch pie slicer. Get it here.
  11. Laguiole Carving Set – The knives of French kings and queens, found in all the best restaurants, now playing at your Thanksgiving table. Beautiful wood handles, stainless blades, and a box for storing them safely until next year’s Thanksgiving. Get the carving set here.
  12. M’heritage Roaster w/ Cast Iron Handles & Rack – If you want the spectacular option, go for copper cladding and never look back. You can buy it here.
  13. Gravy Boat – Gravy is as important to the holiday as the turkey it blankets. And gravy boats, on a plate, are hands down the least messy, most attractive way to serve it. Buy it here.

Great Gift Ideas For Cats and Cat Lovers! #BBNshops

Here are some great gift ideas for your cat or a cat lover you know. I have a bunch of cats and I know they would love these items. These all would make great Christmas gifts but are useable year round. Some of these are geared towards the cats but others are to make a cat person’s life easier like litter items. Some of them can be for someone who loves cats but does not have a cat yet but is contemplating it like the calendar, book and puzzle.

Independence is what we always hear about cats, but they still need a few things from us to have the best lives. Shelves and perches so they can look down on us, still keeping track, but pretending not to, and some more little necessaries.
