Shop Argentina for holiday host gifts

It’s coming on Christmas, but a week spent touring Argentina hasn’t really played into the holiday spirit. It’s hard to embrace mistletoe and holly when everyone’s gathering for a barbecue in shorts and t-shirts.

A little math can add up

When I was little, my dad used to sit my two sisters and me at the kitchen table and play the Smarties game. He would ask us questions and we’d get a Smartie when we got one right. When we got one wrong, he’d get a Smartie — or two or three. The Smarties game taught me my times tables and combined two loves that shaped my life: math and chocolate.
