I treated my chocolate-loving wife (and me) to Wonka Exceptionals Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bars. The 3.5 ounce bar mixes milk chocolate with toffee, crispy cookie and peanuts. Willy Wonka would be proud.

Oprah Winfrey loves to give. She graciously signed off today after 25 years of daytime television and nearly a decade of her audience-swooning Favorite Things. The blog Jezebel estimates Oprah gave $23,809,050 worth of products since 2002. Not every gift stood the test of time — like Dell’s Pocket DJ MP3 player and J.Lo’s velour sweatsuit — but most have. Let Oprah be your guide for your next gift.

How many digital photos do you have of your valentine? Apple makes it easy to turn those JPEGs into wonderful hard-cover or soft-cover books with iPhoto ’11. For Valentine’s Day, I gave my wife a hard-cover, 60-page coffee table book of our wedding photos. If you don’t have a Mac, consider using Shutterfly or Picaboo for your next photo book gift.

And for a twist on chocolates, give your Valentine what my wife gave me: a large tin of Godiva chocolate pretzels.

I found five ways to treat my wife to a spot of tea on her birthday.

  1. I sent her a dozen tea-stained roses to her work.
  2. I made tea making easy with Tea Forte Kati Tea Steeping System. This 12-ounce green ceramic mug features a stainless steel infuser that sits at the rim. The package comes with two dozen pouches of organic tea.
  3. I introduced her to Tea Forte’s Iced Tea Portico Collection in four flavors: White Ginger Pear, Raspberry Nectar, Pomegranate Blackberry and Ceylon Gold.
  4. I added table-side drama to iced tea with Tea Forte Tea-Over-Ice Brewing Pitchers. This elegant set of stacked pitchers lets you brew the hot tea in the top pitcher then flash chill the tea in the bottom pitcher.
  5. I gave her tins of Tea Lover’s Chocolates — milk chocolates that are ideal for chai tea.
