Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

wine glasses frostedToday’s post is our weekly roundup, which is always fun because that means it is Friday! We think weekends should be enjoyed in their entirety, so we’ve decided to compile a list of items that will help you make the most of your weekend. We all see different things when we look to the weekend; some of us can’t wait for Friday afternoon happy hour, while others are planning a date with their couch and a good book, and still others have big plans for 18-mile marathon training runs. Whatever kind of weekend you’ve got planned, here are a few items to make it awesome.

Frosted Stemless Wine Glasses

Let’s be honest here for a second, the number one best thing about Friday is the wine that normally comes along with it. Whether you’re enjoying happy hour with your coworkers or enjoying a few glasses of wine at home with your spouse, Friday and wine go hand in hand. Which is why we think every home deserves a set of these great Frosted Stemless Wine Glasses! With fun phrases like, “Conserve water, drink wine,” you will get a kick out of these trendy fun additions to your home bar.

 Garage Grip Area Mat

We know plenty of you men (and women) like to spend your weekends tucked away in the garage on solitary projects for your home. Unfortunately, shed, garage, and man-cave concrete floors are hard on your back, legs, and feet, requiring breaks and causing fatigue. If you’re a big fan of do-it-yourself projects, then invest in this great grip area mat for your garage, workshop, or shed and never worry about those aches and pains again! This nonstick mat is also grease and oil resistant so you can get some of those house and auto projects done! Take this weekend to teach your kids a thing or two about cars, or show your teens how to safely use power tools.

Divided Food Storage Containers

It’s picnic time! It is March, and lots of you are experiencing your first warm-weather days of the year. Take advantage of the sun with a little hike and outdoor picnic. Work up a sweat to stay comfortable, and then enjoy fresh fruit, salad, and sandwiches from these great divided food storage containers. Check out some fun walks and hikes in your area and go enjoy the great outdoors! You can pack up the kids and the dog and enjoy a fun and relaxing afternoon hike with a break for healthy picnic snacks!

Active Wear

For some people, weekends mean more time to exercise, enjoy the weather, and train for a Marathon, Triathlon, or Couch-to-5K program! We all know it’s a great idea to get moving on the weekends, which is why we love these plus-size sporty coordinates and women’s active wear leggings. Run in style, and really earn Sunday’s endless mimosa brunch with these great apparel items.

Instant Spouts

In addition to training runs and brunches, Sundays are for cooking and baking. Whether you’re busting out the slow cooker for your weekly meals or not, we still think you should spend a little time whipping up a few muffins or cupcakes for a fun and delicious treat. We love these silicone instant spouts for making cakes, muffins, brownies, pancakes, and waffles without making such a mess. No need to drip all over the counter or get endless ice cream scoopers dirty, just attach the spout and pour the batter. Now you can go enjoy a book on the couch while your goodies bake away!

Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

minnie mickey kissHere at The Lakeside Collection we’ve been busy with office Olympics, but we still make time for the holiday of love! We hope that you’ve already stocked up on jewelry, wine, chocolates, flowers, beer, and anything else you need to make today or tonight a huge success for you and yours. We’re highlighting our favorite fun Valentine’s Day gift items in honor of the holiday. Here are some of the items we’re gifting to our loved ones today.

Disney Salt & Pepper Shakers

This is such an adorable gift; everyone will love these cute Disney salt and pepper shakers. Although they’re meant for the kitchen or dining room table, you can also gift them to kids to play with or fill with glitter. We love having these happy little Disney characters on the table, and since they’re not your standard salt and pepper shakers, you never get confused about which is salt and which is pepper. We will definitely be dining with these adorable little shakers this evening. They’re a perfect pair for sweet and sentimental cards, or fun and goofy notes for your Valentine.

Shoe Wine Bottle Holders

What better way to present a bottle of wine to the shoe-lover in your life than in a wine bottle holder shaped like a shoe? Grab your lady’s absolute favorite bottle of wine and present it in this cute wine holder. We think it’s a fun way to display wine for date night, but also a great gift to the single lady in your life who still has plenty of girls’ nights.

LED Light String With Timer

Need another centerpiece for your table? This LED light is the perfect partner for a Valentine’s Day bouquet. We’ve got another month or so until daylight savings, so it’s still pretty dark in the morning and early evenings. With the warm white LED light, we can light up our flower arrangements, centerpieces, houseplants and more, without resorting to open flames. They will look great on the front table paired with roses, wine, and two glasses tonight. No other lights necessary!

Men’s NFL Watches

The NFL season might have come to an end, but a true fan’s loyalty never leaves. These NFL watches are going fast, but we’ve found them to be the perfect piece of memorabilia for a true football fan. They’re an excellent Valentine’s gift for budding relationships because they’re not too expensive, but not meaningless or cliché. Watches are a great gift because they’re stylish and practical – you always need to know the time! These NFL watches are actually perfect for daily use and high movement activities like running and biking because they’re water resistant and contain an adjustable nylon band for comfort.

Enjoy your day of love with treats, sweets, drinks, and enjoyment. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
