What's out there: Hooded towels and holiday bowls

December 8, 2013 

HOODWINKS: All you need is a soft throw with a clever hood in the shape of an animal and kids' imaginations are sparked. Kids will stay warm and maybe go down for a nap more easily. These are from Old Time Pottery in Fairview Heights. Each is $7.99. Styles vary.

HOLiDAY BOWLS: This quartet of cute ceramic bowls double as measuring cups, though they're much too attractive to be relegated to the kitchen. Fill them with nuts and candy for a holiday gathering. The boxed set is regularly $10.99, but now 25 percent off at Kirkland's in Fairview Heights.
