Although, I may not be able to pull this idea together for my own group of friends this year, here are a few of my favorite items:
1/ 1.18" Stainless Steel Cookie Scoop (Sur la Table - $17) - Keep your hands free of cookie dough with this sturdy device! It's marked as an ice cream scoop, but I've been using it for years to scoop out perfectly portioned cookies.
2/ L'Occitane Sweet Almond Liquid Soap (L'Occitane - $24) - This generously sized hand soap is mildly scented and oh so gentle on your skin. I'm not a big fan of overly scented soaps, so this might be a nice option for sensitive noses : )
