Dec 18.2015 – Give this to your favorite foodie, lots of designs to choose from

Hosted & posted by Barbara J Nosek

♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

THIS WEEK IN THE GIFT GUIDE

Basic aprons are protective, available in different styles, suitable for both men and women, and also extra useful if they happen to have pockets. But . . .  novelty aprons are all that, and fun too!

There are lots of them on Amazon but even on the first couple of pages you’ll find Christmas themes, Snoopy, French maid, Grill Instructor, Fred and Wilma {which kind of turns the wearers into those characters}, and a couple of my favorites: “Your opinion was not in the recipe” and another funny one for bacon.  Some come with matching accessories, many are discounted, most have fast shipping.

Take a look right here
