Kathy's Calm To Chaos Life Top Ten Holiday Gifts For Girlfriends - #10 Starbucks Caffee Verona Gift Set

This year I've decided to create a top ten series of the best gifts for girlfriends this holiday season! I've asked fellow girlfriends what they think is the best gift to give a fellow girlfriend along with my person choices of things I both love to give and get, and have compiled the list! Hope  my followers enjoy this series and discover the perfect gift for one of the girlfriends!

#10 on the list is a coffee and mug set! Having coffee with a girlfriend is not just American, but it's something you see going on all over the world. To me coffee and girlfriends are meant to be together. I love going over my sister's house for coffee and just catch up on the things we've missed in each others lives. It's these memories and good times, along with follower input that has put the Starbucks Caffe Verona Gift Set Christmas 2013 2 Mug Gift Set into the #10 spot.

As you can see the mugs are just so adorable and very holiday-ish with their red color and Starbucks village scene. The coffee is the Dark Caffe Verona blend! Can we say yummmy in a cup! This #10 girlfriend gift can be purchased right on Amazon for $25. It is also Prime eligible which would give you free 2 day shipping! If you aren't a prime member you can sign up for a 30 day trial, which includes Prime eligable purchases, such as this great gift set, free 2 Day shipping.

Buy your bestie this cute little coffee and mug set this holiday season!

Training Tip Tuesday: Crate Training 101

Training Tip Tuesday: Crate Training 101

Where does your dog prefer to nap - under a table, desk or coat? Dogs feel secure in a small, enclosed space; it’s like a den to them. You can recreate that feel – and develop a healthy training environment – with a crate. The Principle Behind Crate Training Dogs like small, enclosed spaces because of the security it offers them. Crating is not “jailing” your dog, and the crate should never be used for punishment. Instead, it draws on your dog’s preference for small spaces and allows you an extra measure of control over your dog. If you practice preventative training, your dog will spend time in the crate when you aren’t around to set boundaries.Crates are also helpful when working to housetrain your dog.

Get Fit with Fido!
