This cozy rib-knit sweater is made from the softest 100% merino wool, hand-dyed with natural, azo-free dyes.

Books for girlfriends – For book lovers, winter is a wonderful time to sit by a fire or curled up in a warm blanket and just read. So, I asked my Twitter girlfriends for their ideas for girlfriend books and they recommend:
- Any book (and lots of calendars) by Susan Branch
- “Gift from the Sea” by Anne Morrow-Lindberg
- “Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments: Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World” by Kent M. Keith
- Sweet Potato Queens by Jill Conner Browne, recommended by Casey Wohl, the Girls Getaway author!
- I also love to give and read anything by Kris Radish, Lorna Landvik, Kate Jacobs, and Debbie Macomber.
- “Eat Pray Love” was also recommended by several Twitter girlfriends and I agree! Great girlfriend book.

Give her the gift of warmth and comfort with this pure silk is woven cozy throw. My girlfriend Barb crocheted me an afghan a few years ago which I LOVE and always think of her when I wrap it around me to stay warm.

Rayon Striped Scarf – My girlfriend Deana gave me a similar scarf a few years ago and I wear it all the time. The colorful stripes seem to pull together an outfit and look jazz up a boring sweater or make a jean jacket or plain turtleneck (my standard winter warm ‘uniform’) look like it has a bit of fashion. So, your favorite friend is sure to love this totally trendy striped scarf. It’s 100 % Rayon and hand-loomed in India. She’ll love how it looks great with coats, jackets, blazers, shirts, and sweaters – or she can wear it with dresses and suits. And, it makes a great gift for women of all ages – and you don’t need to guess their size or specific fashion sense.
Pedometer – Was it her New Year’s Resolution to lose weight? Well, you don’t need a gym membership or expensive personal trainers to lose weight. Actually, with some discipline in your eating and a commitment to walking, she (and you) can reach your weight loss goals. Just ask my sister Carol, who has no gym membership or diet loss program and just walks every day. She has lost over 50 lbs last year and looks fabulous! A pedometer is a great way to get walking and healthy. This one has a unique dual sensor technology so it can be carried in your pocket or bag and it accurately measures steps, as well as aerobic steps, calories consumed, distance and minutes. And thanks for inspiring me, sister! You’ll always be my big sister but now just based on age and love!
