Cheryl's What to Get A Woman Who-Has-Everything Gift List!

I have a few on my Christmas list that are hard to buy for.  Here's some ideas I have used recently or I am going to use.  Or, you might find the suggestions humorous or it gets your creative juices going! :) 

1.  From Chicagoland's Morkes Chocolates... Chocolate Shoes, even if the lady's correct size! 
I bought these for Brent's girlfriend last Christmas in leopard.  I scored some points!
Click here for some solid chocolate royal styles

2.  A Book, Letters from a Nut by Ted L. Nancy (the real author is rumored to be Jerry Seinfield)

I can't even say the name of this book without laughing.  It's clean humor and fits ages 10 to 100.
There are lots and lots of sequels.  I am going to a Barnes and Noble right now, just to read these books again and I know I will exit with a purchase!  This is healthy for a person on your gift list to receive because laughter is great medicineClick here for all of the sequels

3.  Shi Shi Flip Flops

I love this idea.  Make your own One-of-a-Kind Flip Flips Online.  You choose the color, style, uppers, downers, fabric, doodles, and shine!  Click here to get started or to get a gift card.

If you love the Havaianas' Make Your Own Flip Flop Concept...  Then add an air ticket to São Paulo, Brazil, where your lovely gift card recipient, can make her own flip flops right in their store.  It's kind of like Build-A-Bear, except for the grown-up girls!


There are United States store locations, but there's nothing like São Paulo in January!

4.  Godiva Dark Chocolate Homemade Fudge

                                         Use Godiva Dark Melting Chocolate! :)


4 c. sugar

1 stick organic butter (1/2 cup)

1 (12 oz.) half and half
1 1/2 (12 oz.) pkgs. Godiva dark melting chocolate pieces

1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow cream

1 c. chopped macadamia nuts; optional
Gold edible spray for top of fudge

1.  Melt butter (careful not to burn) in large pan and stir in milk and sugar.
2.  When everything is melted, boil for five minutes, stirring constantly.
3.  Remove from heat.
4.  Add Godiva Dark Melting Chocolate Pieces, marshmallow cream, and nuts in pan.  Stir well.
5.  Put wax paper in 9 x 13 inch pan and pour liquid fudge into pan.
6.  Cool and keep refrigerated until cutting.
7.  When fudge is hardened, cut into pieces with a sharp knife.
8.  Separate pieces of fudge and spray gold edible spray on top and side (not the bottom).
9,  When the gold spray is also hardened, place gold fudge on a fancy tray with a doily or gift box with some appropriate classy gift wrap.
10.  Makes 3 pounds.

11. A simple version would be the basic fudge recipe using marshmallows and chocolate chips, cut into small pieces, and spray with edible gold spray on top and sides, but not on the bottom.

5. Pride & Prejudice Spineless Classics Complete Novel Poster
Jane Austen's classic story immortalized on this art print. Amazingly each word of this classic, favorite novel is reproduced over the area of the poster and cleverly laid out in an elegant silhouette. Beautiful, thoughtful and unique, not to mention utterly genius.

Lol! I like the previous comment! I can't believe there are flip-flops that cost $95! Seriously, I live under a rock.
