More Holiday Previews

To follow up on my previous post about the Rock-It Promotions previews, here are some other great entertaining items and gift ideas I came across over the past month of media previews. We’ve had a busy summer here at H&H getting ready for our holiday issues! I know, Christmas in July really does happen in the magazine world.

1. Mini Mioche

I love these little shoes made by Toms. My boys will definitely be sporting them this fall.

2. Electrolux

How about these new 24″ appliances from Electrolux?! Not exactly an entertaining idea, but perfect if you’re updating your small kitchen or condo.

3. M. Thompson Chocolates

Melt-in-your-mouth goodness — I’ll be placing my order this Christmas!

4. PC Home & Everyday Essentials

I especially like the grey and red nutcrackers in the front (left). And aren’t these gingerbread cookie cutters a brilliant idea? It’s a full set of cookie cutters to build your own gingerbread house.

New for 2011 holidays, PC is offering “dinner parties in a box” — your basics, white dinnerware and glasses of all sizes sold in boxes of 12 (left). Not only is this a great idea, but we all loved the packaging. And the variety of patterns for PC’s Christmas crackers is unbelievable this year! The kelly green polka dots are a must!

5. Toben Food By Design Catering

For a night off, consider catering! These wild blueberry pancakes (left) were soooooo tasty! And their duck poutine packed unbelievable flavour!
