Ferrero Rocher
The festive season isn’t complete without a box or two (or three) of delicious chocolates with the folks. Ferrero Rocher has a special tree of chocolates that make for a perfect hostess gift. You can gift these or keep them for yourself when you’re having a I-need-chocolate-before-I-die day (and yes, that is totally unselfish).

    Great picks! It’s the first good idea list with offers in every price class.
    I was thinking about buying the Surface Pro 3 for my dad today since it’s on sale but maybe I’ll buy the espresso machine above instead. That way, at least I’ll always get great coffee when I see him!
