I've been a pet lover my entire life, but made my passion a profession in 2006. I closely follow pet lifestyle trends, industry news and assist companies with product development.

Pretty and unique gifts to get your work assistant

‘Tis the season to make spirits bright, and show just how much you care! For the person you can’t work — or let’s face it, live — without, show your appreciation with a thoughtful, unique gift this year. We’ve rounded up the best holiday gift ideas for your assistant.

Pasolivo’s organically and sustainably farmed olives are handpicked and pressed within hours at their Paso Robles, California olive mill, which produces this buttery extra virgin olive oil. Created as a lighter alternative to their award-winning robust Tuscan-style blends, they’ve used milder olive varietals to create an oil that harnesses the freshness and health benefits of premium olive oil, but is softer on the palate and is extremely versatile. Perfect for everyday cooking, Kitchen Blend has the light fruitiness of traditional extra virgin olive oil with a smooth finish that is ideal for sautéing and grilling, as well as for dressing fresh greens, perfect for holiday dishes. (Pasolivo, $32)

2. For the artist-at-heart assistant
