Specialty hot chocolate and cocoa for the gourmet
Super Italian & French chocolate treats
We can all buy various brands of hot chocolate in our local grocery stores and supermarkets but unless you have an extremely good deli nearby, it’s unlikely that you can buy these delights locally. However, they are freely available online to be delivered to your door. And once you try them, the supermarket variety will pale in comparison. But that’s just one reason why these are a wonderful gift idea.
Fair trade decor items for home or office

Historic Ferrari photographs for the collector
Ferrari photographs – heirlooms in the making
I find that there are three types of Ferrari fans. The first are those who spend weekends during the season watching Formula One practice, qualifying and the race, those who drive the road cars and those who just – like me – love the racing, the history, the tradition and the luxury Italian styling. For us, there is nothing quite like Ferrari.

A gentle and natural way to start the day
Until I discovered this wonderful ‘alarm clock’ it had never occurred to me that most of us start our day harshly and unnaturally thanks to the shrill sound of a raucous alarm going off.

With it, you can wake up to a sunrise; as gently and naturally as we should. What a brilliant idea this is.

I believe this.
