Must Have Home

Bodum Bistro Mugs

Lisa Sugar, our editor in chief, has been raving about these Bodum mugs since she visited a friend's house last Summer. "After first experiencing drinking from this mug as a houseguest, I thought, I have to have these. Then a good friend gifted me a set and I could not contain my excitement," she shared. "They look great in any kitchen."

Individually mouth-blown by expert artisans, the two walls of breathable glass in these Bodum mugs creates amazing insulation. They keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold without condensation — which means no need to worry about your tables or coasters. Plus, they're gorgeous!

Tea Forté

Curl up with this heavenly assortment of teas from a line we've enjoyed for years, Tea Forté. The elegant box contains an variety of flavors to treat your guests or yourself this Winter.

Enjoy their most popular blends — we think these just might be your cup of tea.

Bogdon's Peppermint Poles

Peppermint is one of the quintessential flavors of the holiday season, and these chocolate-covered sticks are a classic treat that brings us back to our childhoods. Dip them in your coffee or hot chocolate, savor one as an after-dinner dessert, or enjoy them on their own anytime of day. Plus, at only 17 calories per stick, it's about as guilt-free as the holidays get.

Must Have Tech


We are completely attached to our phones, and sometimes it's not so fun to think about all the places we set them down to keep a close eye until our next phone call. Thanks to the newly released GoSwype, we no longer have to worry about what we're holding up to our faces when we chat with loved ones, with a simple wipe of the cloth across the screen. Keep it in your bag at all times, wipe off your phone when you need to, and breathe easy knowing it removes dirt, oil, grime, fingerprints, and up to 98% of germs and bacteria.
