Those of you who follow us often know that I have made some major lifestyle changes this year and helping my loved ones live healthier lives has been a priority as well. Popcorn is a fantastic healthy snack option and cooking it on the stovetop is even better. Amish Popcorn Company's Whirley Pop Popcorn Popper makes it easy. Pop 6 quarts of delicious popcorn with as little as a teaspoon of oil in less than 3 minutes! Paired with the Advent Calendar and you've got a gourmet movie night gift set. Every popper comes with a "Secrets to Great Popcorn" guide with dozens of recipes and instructions. I especially like that the gears on this model are metal, not plastic.

Those of you who follow us often know about my obsession with ThermoWorks silicone cooking tools. They're quite simply the best utensils on the market for cooking and baking, so it's no surprise that their Hi-Temp Silicone Brushes are on my gift recommendation list this year!  Perfect for stocking stuffers, DIY gourmet gift sets or as stand-alone can't go wrong. These brushes come in two sizes, 8-inch and 12.5-inch, are made of BPA-Free Stain Resistant Silicone for healthy cooking and can withstand 600°F.

If you're looking to create an entertaining night of laughs and conversation with family and friends this holiday season, Off Topic Games has you covered. I especially love Off Topic, which is a trivia-style game where players race against the clock to finish phrases. You may be surprised what comes out of your loved ones' mouths under pressure! The other game I chose this year is Get the Picture. The goal is to sound out the picture clues to guess the famous person, character or band. It's such a good time and listening to players sound the words out brought on serious belly laughs. They are hilariously fun gifts to give or introduce this season. Learn more here.
