Living In Love with M/I Homes

With love being in the air this week, there is no better place to start with LOVE then at home, adding that touch of love right in your own room….Why not?  So we are bringing you a little Living in Love from the master bedroom of one of my favorite one story floor plans with M/I Homes, the Brenham right here in Texas.

Bringing in a little touch of love to this bedroom, really set the mood. It’s as simple as adding a splash of red; through fun pillows, a lovely bouquet of roses, and of course you have to include the traditional conversation candies to your Valentine’s festivities. You to can add that simple touch in your own bedroom, it doesn’t matter if you are married or single. Everyone deserves to live in LOVE!

The Best Home Office Accessories for the Workaholic in Your Life

If you’re like us, you’re probably still looking for that perfect present for someone (or, okay, a lot of someones) on your holiday list. There’s always that person who seems to have everything, and it can be a real challenge to find him (or her) a suitable present.

While we can’t help with everyone you need to buy for, we did put together a list of some gift-giving ideas for the at-home workaholics on your list. We scoured the Internet to find the most unique – and essential – home office accessories, sure to make your hardest-working friends and family members smile. Check it out below:

1. Pivot Power Flexible Surge Protector
Although you may have been putting it off, the Pivot Power Flexible Surge Protector ($29.99) has been attending its yoga classes. One of the best-selling products on Quirky, it’s by far the most bendable power strip we’ve come across. While it can’t quite pull off a King Pigeon or Peacock pose, it’s flexible enough to wrap around a desk leg – each outlet can be bent to fit exactly where your recipient needs it, whether it’s to plug in an iPhone charger or a space heater.

Is a bendy power strip not quite enough for your recipient? Add the Cordies Desktop Cable Manager ($4.99) as a complementary stocking stuffer.

2. Nova Blue Polo Desk Chair
Forget sitting in comfort. Sit in style with the Nova Blue Polo Desk Chair ($199). Designed at a peak of American culture in the 1970s, this chair is retro, chic and everything cool. Break out the disco ball and LPs, and your recipient will be all set to dance the day away while they work in this chair. Oh, as for comfort? Reviewers claim that the chair is comfortable and ergonomically sound – even though it was designed well before ergonomics was a trend.

3. Essey Bin Bin Waste Basket
What better place to throw crumpled scrap paper away than into a trash can that looks like crumpled paper itself? That’s why we love the Essey Bin Bin Waste Basket ($55), designed by John Brauer. The modern-looking waste basket is attractive and tongue-in-cheek. It also comes in red and black, but stick with white to make the joke really stick.

If your recipient prefers to use legal pads instead of normal white paper, pair this waste basket with a Witty Crumpled Legal Paperweight ($28.34). Just be sure you don’t mix the paperweight actual crumpled yellow paper before you wrap it up.

4. USB Gloves
Help keep your hardworking giftee’s fingers nimble with a pair of USB Gloves ($11.98). These gloves plug into a laptop’s USB port, and keep users’ hands warm with infrared light. They don’t have fingertips, so you can still type. Whether your recipient keeps his home office at a cool 60 degrees or she just likes to work outside, these hand-warming gloves will be a welcome and unexpected gift. We think these officially qualify as a warm-and-fuzzy high-tech gadget.

5. Mini File Cabinet
What do you do with a filing cabinet that measures only 6.5” tall? No, this isn’t some sort of eco-fiendly movement in the filing industry. The Mini File Cabinet ($12.99) is specifically designed for business cards. Featuring two tiny drawers, this cabinet should provide plenty of space for all of your recipient’s business cards.

And although these files are almost twice the size of the mini cabinet, we couldn’t resist including these Knock Knock File Folders ($11.35 and $15.63) as a gag gift. There are always some documents that are just asking to go under “To File: By Somebody Else.”

With more than 30 million people working from home in the United States, there’s bound to be someone on your list with a home office. We hope a few of these ideas will help you find something the workaholic on your list just has to have.
