I was tickled when I saw Hallmark’s line of knitted items for the holidays. How cute is this Cozy Snowman Mug? I also loved this set of Cozy Nesting Bowls: If you’re looking for something for a stitcher, how about a Cup full of Cozy?
If you love all things knit, or you have a knitter in your life to shop for, you should be following the Yarn Harlot‘s annual Gifts for Knitters series.

If you love owls, then I’m sure you’ll give a hoot about all of these great finds!

I really love nothing better than a well executed pun. These mugs from Lenny Mud tickle my funny bone, and I’m sure I’d get a chuckle every time I sipped from them. These appear to be sold out, but I still dig ’em.
