When my daughter was younger, she had a slight pancake obsession. Every a.m., she requested her favorite breakfast treat. And when you give a kid a pancake, invariably some syrup will end up in her hair. All day long, I'd breathe in the sweet smell when I enveloped her for a hug.

Since we've now moved on to other breakfast foods, I've been getting my syrup fix with this delectable Maple Taffy lip balm from Lush. It's the perfect antidote for chapped winter lips. The little pot is loaded with 20% real maple syrup, along with soothing shea and illipe butters. Priced at less than $5, it has "stocking stuffer" written all over it.
