Last minute gift guide for the kiddos…

For the Kiddos...

Alright friends, you are taking last minute to a whole new level!  I am not judging because I am not done shopping either, lol.  Since it is pretty late in the game, most of the options I have posted are available through Amazon Prime.  (If you dont have Amazon Prime you should look into it.  They have a free 30-day trial offer.  It entitles you to free two-day shipping on any Prime item and if you are in a real rush you can overnight that item for $3.99.  There are also other features included, such as unlimited streaming of over 41,000 movies and television shows and over 350,000 Kindle books that you can borrow for free.  I am obsessed with it.  I started with the free trial, paid for the year when the 30 days ended and currently order EVERYTHING from there.)

Here is a link to the free 30-day trial and it has more information on all the glorious features: AMAZON PRIME

Okay boys and girls, here are some items that I have purchased for my daughter, relatives and friend’s children that were hits. 

1.  Mustachifier.  So that your baby can be the gentleman we all know he is.

2.  ZelfsMy daughter is eight.  She wanted me to tell you to put this on your list.  Zelfs are THE NEW THING!  They are replacing Rainbow Loom.  You heard it here first.

3.  Tape It and Make It.  Duct tape is amazing.  My daughter makes everything from pen covers to purses out of it.  It is non-messy and keeps her busy.  I love it.  This book will give your youngster all sorts of inspiration.

4.  Duct Tape.  There are so many awesome patterns with this stuff and it is so durable, inexpensive and DIY friendly.

5.  Combi All in One Activity Walker GT.  I got this (in blue) for my nephew for Christmas this year and I cant wait to give it to him!  It is so adorable in person!

6.  Ask Me About My T-Rex Shirt.  I want one of these for myself.  Awesome!

7.  Perplexus Maze Game.  This is a maze game where players must maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere.  It is non-messy, no clean up and no batteries required.  Plus it is a one player game.  I’m sure my husband will steal it from my daughter within three seconds of her opening it.

Good luck!  Happy Shopping!  Let me know if you think I’ve missed anything or have any additions!

Last minute gift guide for the gents…

Here are some last minute gift ideas for the guys in your life…

Gift Guide for the Guys!

Gift Guide for the Guys!


1.  USB Mixtape from CB2.  This made me feel nostalgic.  I miss mixtapes.

2.  Sephora Fragrance Sampler.  This kit is a home run.  I buy a few of these every year because people are guaranteed to love them.  It comes with 14 samples of Sephora’s most popular men’s fragrances plus a travel bag.  The recipient can choose their favorite scent and then redeem the included certificate for a full-sized bottle.  Fragrance is such a personal choice, so it is nice for the giftee to be able to try a couple and choose which one they like best.

3.  Moustache Pub Beer Mugs.  These are awesome.  ‘Nuff said.

4.  Carbon Fiber Watch Case.  If the man in your life is a watch collector this makes a nice showpiece.  If a man is going to wear a gentleman’s watch he needs to store it like a gentleman as well.  3246543512 individual watch boxes strewn about the house is not a good look.

5.  The Art of Shaving Shaving Cream – Sandalwood.  I bought this for my husband a few years ago and he refuses to use anything else.  It has a nice oil that leaves his skin lightly scented and bump-free.

6.  Creed Millesime Imperial.  I bought this for my husband for the first time ten years ago.  I also wear it.  It smells like heaven.  I read an interview a few years back (I just scoured the internet and could not find the article, of course) where they asked Jay Z what the best gift he received was and he said, “Creed in the gold bottle”.  That alone should tell you something because you KNOW Jay Z gets some awesome gifts.  They sell this at Neiman Marcus but I just located it on overstock.com for a great price.  The reviews seem to indicate that it is authentic so I am going to order a bottle and link to them as well.  That is a great deal!

7.  The Northface Chilkat II Boots.  These will keep his feet warm and insulated.  Warm + dry feet = happy man.
