SSS Reveal

I was lucky enough to join in the SSS hosted by Georgie at Decisionally Challenged.  And instead of posting what I receive we get to post what we are sending to our Secret Partner.  They get to look at all the goodies and then match up their packages to see who was their Secret Santa.  So here is my package that is going out in the mail tomorrow morning.

First, my partner is a mom of a young one.  So I felt she (the mom) needed some time to relax and unwind.  I love a cup of hot tea and hope she will too.  Here is her personal tea for one set.
With a tin of Eat, Pray, Love....Blood Orange Cinnamon Black Tea by The Republic of Tea.  I love this flavor and felt it was perfect for a warm fall tea.  Also the tin sorta makes me think of her blog.
Of course she needs a tin of Royal Dansk Luxury Wafers in Chocolate Hazelnut Cream.  So light, crisp and still rich in flavor. 
Of course she needs to have some time to unwind in the tub.  So I am sending her one of my favorite soaps from Serenity Soapworks out of Texas (my home sweet home).  This one is in Spicy Orange in keeping with a great fall scent.
And when this mom bats her beautiful eyes she can have them made up with L. A. Colors mineral eyeshadow duo in Secret.  A lovely mix of chocolate brown and a tawny gold shades.    There is also (not pictured) baby sitter checklist memo pad.  She can insert a photo (oh how she loves photos) of her lil one in the top.  Below she can list where she is at and how she can be reached.  Along with special instructions and emergency information for the sitter when she gets a chance to get out and about. 
Of course since my partner is a reader I have to send a book mark and a couple of books.  The first book is Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too.  This is a great one to remind moms that you have to be a lil selfish to actually be a better mother.  I hope she enjoys this one and heeds some of the ideas in there too. 
Another book is a signed (by Hank Wasiak) copy of Change the Way You See Everything: Through Asset-Based Thinking.  This was a wonderful book that helped open my eyes to seeing life on the positive.  I was also happy to have met Hank Wasiak in person too.  So I hope my partner enjoys her signed copy. 
I have also enclosed a few extras.  A lil pink hibiscus flower keychain.  A month by month coupon keeper with a few coupons already clipped and inserted.  Maybe they can come in handy for her.  Since I am from the great state of Texas where Bar-B-Que's are almost a religion, I had to include a true living red, white and blue full apron.  I think it would be good for her or her own Dear Hubby to use.  Of course if we have an apron then we need something to cook.  So last but not least I am sending her a years subscription to my favorite cooking magazine, Cooking Light

When I was packing the box, it was a lil loose.  Now what can I do to stuff the box and not look yucky?  Hey!  I is a lovely winter day.  A bit of a chill in the air.  Just added in a box of Swiss Miss hot cocoa and a couple bags of marshmallows (big and small ones).  I love marshmallows as my treat, especially since they are fat free!
I hope that all of this brings a smile to my SSS partner.  I know I enjoyed thinking of things she might enjoy.  Now I just need to get her card signed and off to the post office I go tomorrow morning.  Merry Christmas!
