Coffee Break: Cord Taco

Yes, the name of this product — the Cord Taco — might sound a little odd at first, but it’s been recommended by enough readers that I’m seriously considering giving it to a few people for gifts this year. I love that there are a bunch of fun colors, like this turquoise, and it’s something that’s affordable, functional, and a little fun. It has a lot of great reviews, too. You can get 3 for $16 at Amazon. Cord Taco

We’re featuring a few intriguing items from each store and we’ve included details on shipping — because somehow, it’s already November.

Gift Idea: NAP Touch Throw Blanket

I’ve mentioned this awesome blanket before, but I don’t think it’s been a while — and if you order today you can still get delivery by Christmas, so today seems just as good as ever. I’ve bought these a number of times over the years — first for my sick grandmother who had broken a rib and needed to sleep sitting up — second for my television-loving mother to nuzzle under — and, more recently, for us. These things are amazingly soft, machine washable, and they hold up like iron — all of the ones I’ve bought (as long ago as ten years now) are still in great condition. Brookstone now sells several iterations of it — textured blankets, “luxury” blankets, bed blankets, socks, robes, etc. — but if you’re looking for an easy gift that will be loved, the nap blanket is a sure bet. It’s $49.99 at Brookstone, and eligible for free 2-day express shipping. Nice!  NAP Touch Throw Blanket

Gift Idea: Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker

slow-cookerHappy Thursday! As it’s getting down to the wire for holiday gift-buying, especially once you factor in shipping, wrapping, etc., Amazon comes through as always. I happened to find this great thread where readers were talking about their favorite kitchen gadgets, and one of the things mentioned was the Instant Pot. I don’t have one yet, but I keep hearing amazing things about them, and as someone who is into slow cooking myself I think this would be a really good gift for anyone else who’s a fan. It’s only $79 (list price $119) for this 7-in-1 that’s a combined slow cooker, pressure cooker, and rice cooker (plus other functions), and it’s eligible for Prime shipping. (Can anyone recommend an Instant Pot cookbook?) Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker

How to Take Advantage of a Quiet Office at the Holidays

How to Take Advantage of a Quiet Office at the Holidays2017 Update: We still stand by this advice on how to take advantage of a quiet office during holidays, but you may also want to check out all of our posts on holiday business etiquette.

It’s coming: the dead period around the holidays when many of your coworkers are out on vacation, projects are done or winding down, and no one wants to start anything major before the end of the year. In late December, a quiet office can feel like a ghost town to people who are still there — but you can take advantage of it in many useful ways. What do you do when the office is quiet around the holidays and you’re still at work? 

We’ve rounded up several ideas of things to do in a quiet office:
