Buying a gift for your loved ones can be an uphill task. Just finding something that they will appreciate and have it encrypted in their hearts for life be difficult. The situation will be complicated when dealing with men since they don’t openly disclose what they like. I will advocate that you go for something simple, precious and lovable. Beaded bracelets have and will always work for most men. They will love it, and the site of it on their hands giving the memory is priceless. Here are the three royal men beaded bracelets you must consider gifting your man.
1. Superior gold obsidian
A real man is defined with class. They should be a masterpiece in society. As such the gifts should match the credentials and you can stoop any lower than the royalty state. The royal bead bracelet collection should be your thing if you value the man. The Superior gold obsidian royal beaded bracelet is elegant and bold so that your recipient of the gift will appreciate the present.
Made from gemstones combined with karat, the Royal men beaded bracelets will make the man outstanding from the mammoth. They typically consist of between 8 and 12mm beads in particular combination. They will be a suitable gift for that bald man in your life. You will love their exclusive, stylish and modern nature. They are available in different sizes, and you will be spoilt of choices. Getting the tight-fitting size will be a significant plus. It is also possible to customize the Superior gold obsidian bracelets to reflect the particular personality.
2. Superior Gold Tiger Eye
Every man wants to be the head of the social unit; as such, they should be protective and visionary. Well, in the jungle, we understand the traits of the tiger and is one respectable creature in the animal kingdom. For that man, you deeply treasure, you should revere to them. A man is receptive to all that will complement their character and stump their authority.
No gift can match that which will reflect on one’s desired personality. If they are not tigers already, then this bracelet will make them think otherwise and maybe transform them as they get the self-esteem from the gift. The bracelets are durable since they are made from the tiger eye beads stone as well as the 14K solid gold. The award will be with them for life.
3. Superior Gold Sodalite
Sodalite is one of the most precious stones in the world. The dark blue beaded bracelet should stand out at the birthday party for that dear man in your life. Made to withstand the extreme weather, the bracelet will be a companion to them in your absence. If you doubt, then there is a lifetime guarantee to drive away your uncertainties. You will have to get the measurements right so that the bracelet can be custom made to fit their wrist perfectly. Unwrapping the gift from the box will be sensational since they come with a luxurious box that the recipient of the award will adore and store as well.
Christmas is getting closer and closer, I love it! Dana and I are here to help you with new recipe ideas for the holiday season. Now on Christmas Day we have the usual turkey, ham and all the trimmings but for Christmas Eve we decided to change it up a bit and have lasagna. It feeds a lot of people and really who doesn’t love lasagna? So it is a real crowd pleaser. Since you can assemble it even the night before it makes the hectic Christmas Eve go a lot more smoothly.
This is my go to lasagna recipe, very simple, very classic, we jazz it up a little bit by adding in some Italian sausage. To make it more festive I put a Christmas Tree pattern on it made from bell peppers. I made the tree limbs out of green bell pepper slices, and decorated with chopped red and yellow pepper, the tree trunk is bit of red pepper and a (poorly shaped lol) star out of the yellow bell pepper.
I use no boil noodles and get this put together in no time. I pop it in the fridge and it is ready to go the next day for Christmas Eve dinner. A basket of garlic bread and a huge salad and Christmas Eve dinner is done!
So take it straightforward this holiday and create this amazing Christmas Lasagna! Don’t forget to go away some for Santa!! 😉

For cooking the gammon
2kg/4lb 8oz unsmoked boneless gammon joint, tied
2 onions, halved
2 carrots, unpeeled, cut into 5cm/2in pieces
2 celery stalks, cut into 5cm/2in pieces
4 bay leaves
12 black peppercorns
small handful cloves
For the glaze
4 tbsp runny honey
4 tbsp English mustard
1. Place the gammon joint into a large lidded saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat. Drain the water from the saucepan, add fresh cold water, the onions, carrots, celery, bay and peppercorns and bring to the boil once more. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer the gammon and vegetables gently for 20 minutes per 500g/1lb 2oz. (If your pan is not quite large enough to cover the joint completely, turn the gammon over halfway through the cooking time.)
2. Remove the gammon from the water and set aside to cool for 15 minutes. (The cooking liquid can be strained and reserved for making soup for another time.)
3. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6 and line a large roasting tin with kitchen foil.
4. Use a small knife to remove the rind from the gammon joint, leaving as much of the fat intact as possible. Score the fat in a diamond pattern, and push a clove into the centre of each ‘X’.
5. Place the gammon into the foil-lined roasting tray, ensuring that the sides of the foil come halfway up the joint to contain any roasting juices.
6. For the glaze, mix the honey and mustard together and brush half of it evenly over the gammon, including one side of the joint. Roast in the centre of the oven for 10 minutes, then take the joint out and brush the top and remaining side with the rest of the glaze. Return the gammon to the oven for a further 10– 15 minutes, rotating the tin so that the opposite side of the gammon faces the back of the oven.

On Christmas Morning my children and grandchildren arrive at my house to open presents and have brunch, it’s another family tradition started when the kids were young.
Our usual routine is orange juice and cocoa or coffee in the kitchen before we head over to the formal living room to distribute and unwrap gifts. This ritual takes at least 2 hours and I usually pop in to the kitchen to toss the egg dish in the oven during the last hour or so.
When the kids were younger we served a plated breakfast at the table, these days with in-laws and grandkids there’s just too many of us for a proper sit down breakfast, not to mention the unwrapping ritual takes us longer, so we set up a brunch buffet instead. Although times have changed the menu has not. I like to keep it simple and easy to prepare so I look for things I can prepare the night before and throw in the oven before brunch.
Our traditional menu includes:
Chile Relleno Torta – a delicious baked egg dish, I got the recipe years ago from Diane Mott Davidson’s book “Dying for Chocolate”. For recipe click here!
I serve this with fresh warm tortillas, salsa, and sour cream on the side.
French Toast – I try different types every year. This year I will try this Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast recipe from Carl’s Bad Cravings. For recipe click here
Fried and Scrambled Eggs
Hash Brown Potatoes
Coffee, Cocoa, and juice
