Well, it is officially that time of year!  I have started my Christmas shopping and the holiday party invites are rolling in.  Last week I got some great gift inspiration from the team over at Momtrends.  They held their annual #MTHoliday Soiree at Studio 1315 in New York City and it did not disappoint!  Here are some of my favorite brands and products that were featured:

Hasbro.  Even though I am a little hurt that they did away with my favorite pink character in Hungry Hungry Hippos, I still love and own every single game on this table!  I enjoyed hearing about how they are being updated to make them more current.  For example, Chromecast and Hasbro are collaborating on an app called “Monopoly Here & Now: Big Screen Edition”.

Fun fact, we got a Jenga in our swag bags and Taylor and I have been playing it constantly.  Here is some video of me getting my butt kicked by my ten year old…

POM Wonderful.  I love the taste of pomegranate but I have always been too intimidated to cook with it on my own.  At this event I learned an easy technique on how to open them (in a bowl of water so that the white membrane floats to the top) and got to sample some delicious drinks and recipes.   I never would have thought that plantain chips with guacamole and pomegranate would be such a yummy combo!

Epson.  I must confess that I don’t even own a color printer right now because dealing with replacement ink cartridges was so expensive and inconvenient that I just gave up.  After meeting the rep from Epson I may give it another shot though.  Their new Epson PictureMate PM-400 Personal Photo Lab wireless printer is so small that it can fit in a large purse, it uses low-cost replacement ink bottles and it prints gorgeous pictures!  I was really impressed by it (especially it’s size).  It definitely packs a lot of bang for the buck and would make a great gift.

Tessemaes.  These dressings, dips and sauces are dairy free, gluten free, have no sugar added  and yet they still taste great!  I have no idea how they managed it but it’s the truth.   I think they would be a fabulous edition to the stocking of a foodie in your life.  I plan to put a jar of the Chesapeake Mayonnaise in my Dad’s stocking!
