Even if you try to avoid last-minute gift shopping, the holidays always seem to bring out the worst in shoppers. People get competitive, impatient and it's really no surprise when you consider the overall ambiance of the gifting season: dizzying lights, warbling choral music on repeat, fake Santas and bratty kids, packed parking lots and the pressure to please everyone — and then some. Hardly what you'd expect from a time touted as being reserved for charitable acts and peace on earth (OK, maybe that's a little over the top).
The functionality of a sneaker, but with the comfort of a slipper? Say no more. Allbirds’ best-selling sneaker is cozy enough to go sock-free, and surprisingly, all-weather-proof!

If that isn’t enticing enough, each sneaker is made of recyclable and renewable eucalyptus tree byproduct, making it environment-approved.

Well, I did when I was in university, and the approachable recipes were a great way to ease me into the kitchen,” she said, adding, “And for me, it’s almost like a scrapbook, reminding me of when I tried to make Gypsy Soup, of hours spent poring over the recipes for Vegetable and Walnut Pate, Stuffed Eggplant, and Lentil burgers, trying to figure out how to tweak these dishes to make them better, learning from what they were doing, and slowly, page by page, without even knowing it, becoming a chef.”
