I had planned to include this item as a part of my Father’s Day round up for 2017, but as many of you know, my father passed away two weeks before Father’s Day and I couldn’t bring myself to write up the post.  As much as I wanted to push past my heartache, I struggled with putting it together so it didn’t make it on the blog this year as I had hoped it would.  This would be the first Father’s Day in quite a while that I didn’t offer a Father’s Day Gift Guide.  Because of this, I would like to apologize to my faithful readers and companies who had hoped I would feature their products.  Because of this, you’ll be seeing me play catch up over the next few weeks and talking about products that I would have loved to include in that specific round up but didn’t get the opportunity to do so.  Today, I would like to talk with all of you about the Wild & Wolf Wrench and Torch Multi-Tool which can be purchased at one of my favorite websites – The Grommet.  Let’s get all the fun and exciting details, shall we?

The Wrench and Torch Multi-Tool is perfect for any man and offers a great gift idea for any time of year – birthday, Christmas, Holiday or just because.  It retails for $35 at thegrommet.com and is rugged and built to last.  This wrench multi-tool offers five other tools within the entire package, including:  a knife, screwdriver set and even an LED light.  It’s created and engineered to be tough while still looking elegant and encased in gorgeous packaging – sleek and hardcore.  Honestly, I was an instant fan of this because it is something I could easily take with me and keep in my car to use “just in case” or gift to my husband or man in my life as a great gift.

The Wrench and Torch Multi-Tool is made of 420 stainless steel, plastic, rubber, lithium battery and an LED light element.  It comes with an adjustable wrench, plain edge knife, LED light, bottle opener, saw, flat (standard) and Phillips head magnetized screwdriver set and 6-10 hex wrenches.  It is built with durable steel construction and is made to last.

I have purchased and received many things from The Grommet and everything I’ve gotten off the site, I’ve enjoyed.  This multi-tool from Wild & Wolf is no exception.  With the months blazing by (we are already in August), I know this would make a great gift for anyone this upcoming Holiday season.  I’m loving this tool and while I originally expected to give it to my husband (well, I promised him he could use it), I’m loving it so much that I’ve decided to keep it for myself.  As many of you know, I’m a total car buff and I love to be independent, so this tool gives me the luxury of having the important tools I need, right at my fingertips.

Overall, I think that this multi-tool (and others from Wild & Wolf on The Grommet) would make a great solution as a gift for anyone, even yourself.  It offers a variety of uses and the price point is great.  I also want to touch on how sturdy this product is.  I’ve hit it around several times over the last few months and I already made use of the bottle opener and LED light on more than one occasion.  Tough and made to hold up to years of use makes this a definite winner in my book.

Hello friends.  It seems like forever since I’ve graced the pages of this site with my presence.  The last month has not been the greatest for me and I’m still struggling with all that has happened in June, but keeping busy has helped my mind tremendously through this ordeal.  Last month (June) my daddy passed away unexpectedly.  It was probably one of the hardest things that I’ve had to endure and being the oldest of his four kids, that meant that I was in need of stepping up to plate and taking charge of the situation.  Over the last few weeks, I found myself looking through various photos of my daddy’s life and I’m reminded how important those images are to help jump start our memories.  Photos are timeless keepsakes that can either be stored away or displayed and a great photo display makes a wonderful gift or precious memory something to cherish.  So, today – I introduce you to Canvas Champ.  While I ordered my print just before my dad’s passing, I’m sharing this company with you because it will allow me to provide my family with gifts of memories of my dad once I’m done designing them.

Canvas Champ offers you the opportunity to have customized canvas products that are affordably priced and utilize industry standard materials.  As a photographer, I’ve used different canvas printing companies in the past and I’m definitely impressed with the companies quality and price point.  Canvas Champ also offers a reseller program and can provide you with bulk ordering as well.

Canvas Champ’s Canvas prints start at about $5.00 for small sized prints and depending on the size and additions to your print, the price increases from that point.  Shipping is also very reasonable and I love that it ships via Fedex so you receive your order in a timely manner.  Each order comes with Hooks for Hanging (free of charge) and you have the option of adding things like an easel back, stand or dust covers as well as basic editing options as well.

The website’s interface is very easy to use.  As you can see from the screen capture above, you can select the border and framing options, color finishing and you can also see if you have provided a quality image for printing.  I love that you can upload any image you want and can make any changes or adjust the sizing as you see fit.  I’m in the process of ordering the above image for my mommy as a gift so I’m excited to see how it turns out.

The canvas we received was a stretched canvas over compressed wood board and wooden frame.  It’s reinforced well and strong enough to last for years to come.

If you are looking for quality and affordable options for printing your photo keepsakes on canvas, I definitely suggest checking out Canvas Champ.  Affordable prices, quick service, and quality work will definitely make Canvas Champ a favorite in our family and I love that they offer metallic prints as well because I create metallic prints of my nature and landscape photography for family and friends as gifts.

We are literally just a few short days away from celebrating Mother’s Day.  As a mother, I look forward to spending this day with my husband and sons because they are the ones that make me a mom, but this year, my eldest son will be off island for a band concert and I’m certainly going to miss him.  If you’re wondering why it has taken me so long to share with you a little gift guide as I tend to do each year, well – that’s the reason!  I’ve been able to spend this day with all of my boys since they were born so I have been in my own little pity party the last few days knowing that he wouldn’t be home.  A few days ago, I realized that I needed to get over myself and be thankful that my husband and sons treat me like Mother’s Day is every day and no special day on the calendar is ever required.  So – while I am a bit late at sharing my gift lift with all of you – I figured that I would make this post because any day is a great day to get a treat – right?

The first thing on my list is this gorgeous necklace from The Vintage Pearl which you can find on The Grommet.  The Grommet has to be one of my go-to websites for finding unique gifts for my loved ones.  This Messy Nest Necklace is a cute treasured keepsake and I absolutely love it.  Whether you are getting it for your moms or grandmothers, I’m sure it will be a hit.  The necklace starts at $42.00 and is handcrafted in the United States of antiqued silver wire.  Each nest is handcrafted and filled with freshwater pearls – one for each child in the wearer’s heart.  It’s set on a sterling silver ball chain and can be customized to match the number of children in the family.  The creator of The Vintage Pearl is a mom herself and started creating from her kitchen table in hopes to be able to be a stay at home and work from home mom. This is probably one of my favorite pieces to share with you because it’s certainly a sentimental piece.  I hope that The Vintage Pearl will offer this in gold one day.

Next is another gorgeous piece that can also be found on The Grommet.  The Family Tree Necklace by Vintage Stamp Jewels is a great piece that can be worn every day.  The delicate family tree charm represents the life connections that matter to each of us.  You can choose the color and number of Swarovski crystal charms that accompany your tree.  The bezel-set crystals can represent any important moments or people from birthstones of children or grandchildren, milestones and anniversaries or any special date or time that is close to your heart.

Now, when I think of Mother’s Day – I always associate a really great face mask as a gift.  Here’s the deal, I LOVE an awesome face mask and some of my favorites come from Miss Spa.  If you’ve been a long time follower of my blog, then you know I’ve raved and talked about this brand a lot over the years.  What I love about Miss Spa is their wide range of masks available for a variety of skin types and textures.  You literally can find one to fit your needs or someone you love.

Did I mention that these masks are so affordable?  Depending on the type you select, they start at about $4.00 each and go up in price from there and you can easily find a mask that suits you.  I definitely love a great face mask for Mother’s Day because I don’t have time for an at Spa pampering so I love doing it at home.

You can learn more about Miss Spa products, purchase your own or get it as a gift here or at your local Ulta or Drugstore.

Bath Bombs are a favorite gift to receive and to give on Mother’s Day.  For years my sons and I made creations of our favorite scents and dried flowers to give as gifts, a tradition that my sisters and I did when we were teenagers.  One of my long time favorite handcrafted websites for great bath, body and essential oils is Sky Organics.  I’ve been using their essential oils for a few years now and I just had to include them in this guide.  All moms deserve a little pampering and bath bombs are those little fizzy wonders that just help any mom relax.  Sky Organics offers their Organic Bath Bombs Gift Set for just $25.99 (one of my favorites besides my own handmade ones) and it includes 6 beautiful bath bombs in an assortment of scents – Caribbean Coconut (my favorite), Lavender Lemon Muffin, Love Potion, Mermaid Kiss, Strawberry Milkshake and Sugar Rose.  These beauties are made in the USA and each bath bomb has a net weight of 5 oz.  It’s a total steal for sure.

If bath bombs aren’t your thing, then be sure to check out their wide range of essential oils.  They offer a set with all of their oils for just $50.  Did I mention they also provide FREE SHIPPING.  Head on over to their website here for more information.

LATHER is another company I recommend to anyone and they offer gift sets that are perfect for Mother’s Day or any day of the year.  Their Dream On set ($58.00) includes their blue chamomile foaming bath treatment, lavender aromatherapy candle, Art of Tea sleep tea handcrafted loose leaf tea (organic), tea infuser, quiet night relaxing balm, eye mask, and a reusable gift box.  All of these essentials are perfect for treating mom to a night of a little peace, quiet and relaxation.  With my sleepless nights and insomnia, this kid would be the absolute perfect way for me to just settle down and relax.

I’ve been swooning over IT Cosmetics the last few months now and I knew I just had to include some of these beauties.  Honestly, I’ve been totally stalking IT Cosmetic’s website now making a VERY LARGE wish list of items I want to try.  I have literally only tried their Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment and Bye Bye Under Eye, so I find that this portion of my post has an ulterior motive for me… hehehe!  Maybe my friends and family who see this will snatch something from IT for me for Mother’s Day.  Hey, one can hope, right. j/k!  This year IT Cosmetics is offering a bunch of IT girl essentials that will literally have your Mom feeling her most beautiful on this special day and always.

Now – of course, makeup brushes are definitely my thang so I had to share with you the Face & Eye Essentials Mini 5-Piece Face and Eye Travel Brush Set.  This set retails for $30 and it wold be a great hit for Mom.  An awesome powder, eye shadow brushes and liner brush can help you get ready in a flash.  Four brushes are included to line, define, smoke out and blend.  Plus, you get an all-over complexion brush for all the basics from foundation to blush and illuminizer.  This is a great kit that includes the tools to get that fab look.

The Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment ( I just mentioned about how this is one of the products I have tried from IT) is also a great gift selection.  But, this NEW Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment is now available in Rose.  It contains the essential butters and oils, hyaluronic filling spheres and antioxidants for your softest and smoothest looking pout while it flushes your lip to the perfect rosy pink.  The original is my go-to when I’m in a rush or not feeling makeup but want a little color to my lips.  It’s definitely something I’d buy for my mom and something I’d love to receive as a gift.  It retails for $24.00

Lastly from IT Cosmetics, I wanted to share with you the Bye Bye Pores Blush (retail $24). This award-winning Bye Bye Pores formula is infused with optical-blurring pigments which instantly diffuse the look of pores and discoloration.  It’s filled with skin-loving ingredients like anti-aging silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants, and peptides which will give any Mom (any body) a youthful flush.  I definitely think this is perfect for me or my mom because we love a great blush and anything that is infused with ingredients we love, well – it’s definitely a must have.

You can purchase any of these products on IT Cosmetics website here.

Who says hair products and tools don’t make great gifts?  Not me!  I would love to get a fab hair tool for Mother’s Day so I figured I would include something that would help mom eliminate the “hair tool storage” and get a 3 in 1 that can do the trick.  The CHI Ellipse 3-in-1 Styling Iron is a great tool to make convenience mom’s game.  You can create a multitude of looks using this very versatile styler that includes 3 styling options in one tool.  With Teflon and Titanium plates to create smooth and sleep styles on a non-stick surface.  You can great smooth hair, curls and waves with just one tool.  The styler has adjustable temperature settings that heat up to 410 °F / 210 °C.  It has a ceramic heater for consistent temperature and an LED touch sensitive temperature control and display.  You also get a temperature lock feature (oooh… fancy) and a 1 hour shut-off.  I also love that it comes with it’s own glove, so you have everything you need for the perfect hair style.  The CHI Ellipse 3-in-1 Styling Iron retails for $110 but the price is reasonable considering the quality of the product and the fact that you can use it for more than one style.

You can learn more about this tool or grab one for yourself or your mom here.

This next gift idea is untraditional, but definitely something worth mentioning.  The Revolar Instinct (I’ll have a full review on this product in the next week or so) has been a very important part of my everyday.  Retailing for $80, this little device can be the perfect gift in a big way.  The Revolar is a product that is brand new (the Indiegogo campaign has just completed) but a tool that I think is very worth the while.  It’s a quarter sized connect button that with 1-3 clicks, the Instinct can send different custom alerts to friends and family to let them know where the user is and what level of help they need.  Unfortunately, sexual assault is on a rise here in the United States and violence against women is at an all-time high.  You can send help to your location with a few clicks of this wearable device.  It not only empowers you to be proactive about your safety, but this little Instinct will help ou stay in touch with loved ones as well.  Did I mention it also tracks your steps?  There are no chords, and easy to use device and you can replace a battery in about a year so you don’t have to worry about charging it.  Last year my mom was sitting in a parking lot when someone tried to attack her.  Luckily she was in her car and was able to escape.  When I was 4 years old, a man attempted to kidnap me, I was in his car and he was about to drive away when my dad stopped him in his tracks.  Devices like this are easy to use and definitely worth it.  I wish I had one for each person in my family.  I had to share this with you because it’s a gift I think that would be invaluable to any mom and anyone.  Like I said, a full review will be coming soon – so stay tuned.

I’ll be honest, as a mother, I can honestly say that any type of gift is such a wonderful sentiment, but I never expect it.  I think that Mother’s Day is every day of the year for me and I’m so lucky to call myself a mom.  I love creating handmade gifts for my mom and my mother in law from all of us because I think it’s special and I’m quite good with a glue gun.  Little flowers or hairpins decorated in fabric or paper always seem to make our loved ones happy.  At the end of the day – a gift should come from the heart, whether purchased or made.  My sons make me handmade cards each year and I cherish them with all my heart.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

I want to remind you that Mother’s Day is every single day of the year.  If you’ve been following me a while then you know that I believe this to be so with Valentine’s Day too.  Hmmm… I wish Christmas and birthdays were every day of the year also, hahaha!  Anyway – no matter the gift or sentiment you give to the moms in your life, make it special.  This last minute gift guide was not intended to be late, but I’m reminded that a present for mom doesn’t have to be given only one day a year so even if you miss picking up one of these for that special lady in your life – feel free to use this as a guide to put together a special treat for her at anytime.

I want to take this time to wish all of the mommies out there (whether you have human children or fur babies) a wonderful Mother’s Day this Sunday.  May your day be filled with lots of love and hugs and a whole lot of warmth and happiness.

“To the world you are a Mother, but to your family you are the World.”

It’s that time of year again – Valentine’s Day is approaching.  Now, I’m kind of late the punch in getting this post up this year, but I digress… and it’s getting done anyway, right?  I’ve said this time and time again, but while my husband and I celebrate Valentine’s Day, we both feel that our love for one another should be shown and given every single day of the year – every day of our lives.  Let’s face it, some of you may find that corny, but the fact of the matter is… we shouldn’t need a holiday to celebrate love, right?  Regardless, each year I share a great little gift guide for you – whether you decide you are going to take advantage of it for the holiday or any time of the year or use it to treat yourself, it’s entirely up to you.  So, without further adieu, let’s get into some Valentine’s Gifts shall we?

Let’s talk about rings… jewelry per say.  Now, if you’ve been a follower of this blog for a while, then you know that my husband is a law enforcement officer.  Over the years we have looked for rings that he can use that are not only stylish, but that will allow him to be able to use his rings to work.  In the type of job he has, a metal, gold or silver band can injure the finger and are a huge safety concern.  While it’s allowed for them to use it, it’s suggested that they use a silicone band to help protect against injury and to aid in safety.  That’s where FX8 (Fixate) comes in to play.  These fun silicone ring bands are made of Premium Medical-Grade Silicone.  They are stylish, functional and definitely durable.  The are comfortable to wear with a tapered dome design and are available in Men’s & Women’s styles and sizes.  I like the fact that they offer custom engraving and these rings are designed for an active lifestyle.

Outside of work, we can use our regular wedding rings, but while my husband is at work, I know that this ring will work well for him.  Athletes, racers, extreme sports participants, fitness and gym trainers, mechanics, military personnel, construction and factory works and law enforcement officials all enjoy wearing these.

Each Fixate ring comes with a durable ring bag with a rugged metal “S” clip that is large enough to fit your drivers license, credit card, cash, ring and earbuds.  They are priced reasonably, starting at $19.95+ and while they are not the ideal choice for many, in our instance, it works for my family and our lifestyle.  They come in a variety of different colors too – so I think they are perfect for anyone and they are definitely an affordable, cost effective choice.

Now, I consider Valentine’s Day to also be Gal-entine’s Day.  A fun way to celebrate your lovely gal pals is by giving them a little treat for themselves.  Let’s face it, most of us love makeup and what better way to have a little fun and treat ourselves and our gals by giving them some makeup delights.  Bodyography is a new to me brand, as well as Omega Labs USA.  I thought this would be an awesome time to share the products with you while giving some ideas for shade choices that make great gifts.

Looking for a classic red lipstick?  Try out Bodyography’s Lipstick in Red China ($17.00 – 0.13 oz/3.7g).  I talk about how I think red lips are so enduring and this shade is showstopping.  With a satin matte finish, this gorgeous and long lasting lipstick is super-pigmented and contains moisturizing Aloe Vera as the base to help protect the lips from signs of aging.  Rich mineral pigments provide amazing color payoff and you can find a variety of shades in ranges from pinks to purple and nudes as well as finishes of creams, shimmers, sheers and satin mattes.

The Bodyography Glitter Pigments ($23.00 – 0.105 oz/3g) are also a great choice for a little sparkle any time of year.  These one of a kind eye shadows are made with a technology that incorporates the saturation of a loose pigment, the cushion of a cream, and the silkiness of a powder.  These gorgeous pigments are high glitter with a gorgeous pearl finish.

Valentine's Gifts, gifts, gift guide, gift idea, Valentine's Day, love, sentimental, sentiment, rings, silicone rings, body care, skin care, pampering, spa, love,

This gorgeous shade I have here is called Halo.  It’s a very shimmery and sparkly silver that reminds me of tinsel.  This color is quite bold but would make a wonderful eye lid topper to add a little sparkle and shine or popped right into the inner corner of the eye to brighten the eyes while adding a little sparkle.

Valentine's Gifts, gifts, gift guide, gift idea, Valentine's Day, love, sentimental, sentiment, rings, silicone rings, body care, skin care, pampering, spa, love,

There are eight colors to choose from total.  A little of this product will go a long way and I definitely suggest applying this product wet or foiled using a synthetic brush or with your finger and utilizing tapping motions when applying the product to the lid or where ever you want to go.  This is not your usual mica style pigment where it is finely milled.  These pigments are much more glittery so using these as a standalone shadow may pose some challenges.  But, they are glittery and gorgeous and I think definitely something fun for anyone to try.  Besides… we all love glitter, don’t we ladies?

I love getting nail polish as gifts and these gorgeous polishes from Omega Labs are long wearing lacquers available in a wide array of high fashion shades.  Omega Labs lacquers are free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.  I have the color 389 Peek-A-Boo, a gorgeous nude toned soft peach shade is that is perfect for every day wear or a night out on the town.  The shade is neutral and gorgeous.  Omega Labs Nail Lacquers retail for $7.00 (0.44 fl.oz.)

Now, I obviously couldn’t leave out a little bath and body action, right?  I mean come on… nothing says Valentine’s Day like a little body treatment.  One of my favorite Bath & Body brands, FarmHouse Fresh released this gorgeous Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set that features the White Velvet Hand and Body Creams, Body Wash and Candle all of which have the irresistible whoopie pie aroma.  Let me just say – this is a set that I love and have purchased one for each of my sisters this year.  I know they will LOVE it.

Packaged in a “ready to gift” box, this Deluxe Gift Set offers one of my favorite fragrances from FarmHouse Fresh.  I am loving the buttercream aroma that wafts through the air when I open any of these products.  This gorgeous set includes these wonderfully smelling delectables (do not eat them) amd retao;s fpr $54.00.  I can’t rave enough about this set and I loved it so much the last month that I had to pick up a set for each of my sisters (I have two) because I know they would love it.  With moisture boosting properties in each of these and a great smelling candle to fill a room with a sweet fragrance, I’m a happy camper.

*I plan to have a review detailing each product in the next week or so, so stay tuned for that.

Not everyone is into body care, makeup and jewelry – but house decor is always something fun.  That’s why I am recommending a gorgeous Mandala Tapestry from Rajrang.  Whether you decide to get a Single, Double or Round tapestry these are just gorgeous pieces of art.  I use mine as a throw, but you can definitely use it anyway you please.  A few popular ways are to use them as a wall hanging, home decor and in some cases, just like me – some may want to use this as a layout blanket.  I have taken it to the park or beach to lay on while reading a book.  These are made of a good quality fabric and are absolutely gorgeous.  Did I mention these were affordable?  I even like using these as backdrops to my videos and photos because they are so easy to work with.  Starting at about $10.00+, these beauties would make a great gift for anyone, anytime of the year.

Last on my list is some gorgeous fragrances from DefineMe which I think would make an absolutely wonderful gift for any of your gal pals.  This is the Girls’ Night Set which includes the Audry and Sofia Isabel fragrances for $74.00.  This gorgeous set includes a combination of romantic florals and sweet intoxicating citrus.

Audry’s notes include:  jasmine, peony, rose and sandalwood

Sofia Isabel’s notes include:  mandarin, black currant, jasmine and sugar.

Layered together this set is a wonderful fragrance I absolutely enjoy wearing and I think many of my girlfriends would enjoy this as a gift.

DEFINEME GIRLS' NIGHT | SET OF 2

Now that I have shared a few favorites with all of you, I think you’ll have a list of fab items you could share with a loved one or pick up for your best friend or yourself.  I often get asked why it is that my lists like these are so odd and often times provide “interesting” items.  Here’s the deal… I love sharing a variety of products with all of you and many times I select them based on the fact that they are what I’m liking, enjoying and are favorites at that time or any given moment.  These are just suggestions of products I’ve tried, purchased or that I was sent to try and I like.  Ultimately, it is up to you to decide if this is something you may want to check out for yourself or to buy as a gift.  I also didn’t include many “male friendly” items in this gift collection this time around, mainly because I am just not sure what the hubby would like this year so I’m at a lost as to what to suggest.  Remember, like I said before – Valentine’s Day should be considered an “every day” kind of holiday.  Love should be celebrated each and every day.  Heck, my husband and I do it and it is a part of who we are.  No matter what you decide, make your Valentine’s Day something special – even if it means just treating yourself to something you like.

Happy Love Day, Every Day!

I’m not usually a last minute shopper, like at all, but find my self shopping later and later near Holiday season to get gifts for family.  It’s not that I’m a last minute shopper per say, but more so that time just gets the best of me sometimes.  This year I’m quite thankful that I am just about done with my Holiday Shopping – I just need to pick up some last minute boxes of candy, but I know that many are still on the hunt for that perfect gift.  I have a few gifts I would love to share with all of you, from a wide range of products that you could pick up as a last minute buy.  Whether you have a fitness addict, a beauty lover or anyone in between, any of these gifts no matter the size would surely put a smile on someone’s face this holiday season.  This Holiday Gift Guide is especially fun for the last minute gifts but can be someone for anyone.

The KITLIFE Planner for 2017 is by far one of the best KITLIFE planners to date and I have had three of them prior.  Kit Life stands fro Keeping It Together and it’s a planner that offers just that.  For the working mom or stay at home mom, anyone who feels the need to keep organized by writing things down and a list maker – the KITLife Planner is for them.  When it comes to holiday gift giving – I love giving away planners because they help ring in the new year on a new foot.  KITLIFE has been a favorite of mine now for a while but they have since made quite a few changes.  I’ll have a full review and walk through coming soon.  If you enjoyed the original planner but wanted something more, I think you’ll love this one.  It’s gorgeous, bright and bold and feels so luxe and helps me with my planning.

You can purchase the KITLIFE Planner for 2017 at: http://kitlife.net/  The planners start at: $58.00 and as of today 12/21/16 the KIT Team is offering a 15% off discount of your purchase of a new planner and more.

Back to the Roots Mushroom Farm or Garden-In-A-Can are great gifts to get for anyone that loves to grow their own fruits and vegetables.  It’s especially great gifts for those who live in an apartment and don’t have access to growing their own produce outside.  Since Spring follows the winter season, why not give someone a headstart on growing their own products.  Back to the Roots is passionate about “Undoing Food” and creating sustainable, delicious products to help kids and families reconnect with their food and how it’s grown.  Whether in the kitchen or in the classroom (or both), Back to the Roots’ organic Mushroom Farms, aquaponic Water Garden fish tanks and Organic Garden-In-A-Can goodies can be found at Whole Foods or other select retailers and make wonderful gifts.

Back to the Roots offers a variety of Gift Sets this holiday season and I love that they make great gifts not only for family members and friends but teachers, administrators and others to help encourage learning about sustainable living.  Since my family and I absolutely love tending to our own garden, growing vegetables and fruits, flowers and more – gifts like these really resonate with us and my sons absolutely love the fact that these are perfect presents for their teachers this year to add to their classroom garden.

I LOVE Tea and I think it’s a great gift to give to anyone for the holiday season.  Pique Tea has been one of my faves over the last couple of months and I definitely think it would make a fabulous gift for anyone, especially a tea drinker.  Pique Tea is Tea Crystals that dissolve in hot or cold water.  They are sugar-free and free of calories and are organic and free from artificial flavors and preservatives.  The teas offer 2x the antioxidants of leading tea bags and are sourced from top 5% of tea leaves.  These are my favorites for on the go because there are no messy tea bags, just drop the crystals in your water or liquid, stir and you’re good to go.

The eRase e60 by Emjoi ($79.95) is a fabulous gift for the beauty lover.  This top selling corded, dual speed epilator by Emjoi absolutely outshines competitors offering quick and effective removal of unwanted hair from the body and face with minimal discomfort.  It’s one of my favorite tools and I think it would make a fabulous gift.  The eRase e60 is highly effective with its 60 tweezer action discs that are arranged in skin-tautening dual opposing heads that removes hair from the root (as short as 0.3 mm), leaving the skin smooth for up to 6 weeks.

The Erase Glide Technology enables the user to glide the unit back and forth, or in a circular motion over the skin to remove hair in seconds, while also being gentle enough to remove individual facial hair on the chin or upper lip.  The eRase e60 also comes with a sensitive attachment for the epilator head, resulting in a product designed to be mild enough to remove hair where the user is most sensitive, including underarms, while still remaining easy to use and reliable.  I love that the eRase is able to remove most hair on the first past, which is perfect for my sensitive skin to help reduce skin irritation.  There are limited edition patterns and colors available and this unit is something I wish I could get for a gift under my tree.

While not a traditional gift, I think anything that allows you to filter your water would make an awesome present for anyone this holiday season.  ZeroWater offers a variety of products for your filtration needs.  The 10 Cup Ready-Pour pitcher is the first in its class that comes with a sealed lid and reservoir, making it possible to pour water that has already been filtered without spilling water that’s still filtering.

When it comes to last minute gifts, stocking stuffers tend to make that list as well since they don’t necessarily require much wrapping and are quick to get.  StickerBeans make great gifts for the little boys and girls in your life (teens and even adults included) and are so fun.  Available in two-inch, five-inch and two-feet sizes ranging in prices from $3.50 to $55.00 – StickerBeans are definitely fun.  Bling is all the rave now a days and Entrepreneurs Dana Runyon and Kim Spadaccini have created an easy way to add glitter and glitz to everything from cell phone cases to laptops, tablets and notebooks, lockers and so much more.  What I love about StickerBeans is that the designs are so fun and include a huge array of different types from emojis to cupcakes and even pizza.  For the boys there are fun sports designs and a plethora of glitzy to choose from.  Some of the designs include:  Sports StickerBeans – Basketball and Socker, Nail Polish, Unicorn, hearts and rainbows.

I’m quite impressed with myself – to be honest, that I was able to release most of my Holiday Gift Guides by the first week of December.  Let’s all stand and give me a round of applause, shall we?  lol – All kidding aside, I’m pretty happy with myself this year because I laid out a schedule and I kept with it.  Today, I’m sharing with you a gift guide that I’m absolutely excited about, because it’s one of my favorites to do each year.  When it comes to Stocking Stuffers, I find that they can be the easiest gift to buy for anyone on your holiday gift giving list.  Why?  Well, because anything that you can fit in a Christmas stocking goes… and for me – that means I get to pick up all the little nifty products that I would love to get or receive as a gift and it can always be something fun, practical or unpractical and definitely interesting.  I have a wide list of products that fit into this list so this is going to be a long post – so without further adieu, let’s get started.

Hickies Lacing System is by far one of my favorite gifts to give for the holiday.  Each pack is small enough to fit into a stocking (of most sizes) and anyone who wears shoes with traditional laces will love these.  I own about 8 pairs myself, using them to change up my shoes from time to time and to fit my personality for the day.  Sneaker designs change but one thing that remains the same, are laces.  You’ll never have to tie a shoelace again and once you go Hickies, you’ll never go back to traditional laces.

I couldn’t mention a cool pair of laces without mentioning something along the lines of fitness and the MilestonePod is definitely a great stocking stuffer.  This little device is perfect for any runner or walker and whether you’re training for your first 5K or just getting into shape or staying active, this is the perfect gear for you.  This wearable pod not only tracks your running metrics, but it also tells you when it’s time to replace your shoes and it helps to prevent many common injuries a new running should definitely have in their toolkit.

The Pod is easy to use.  Simply clip the Pod onto your shoe once and leave it there.  The Pod collects data as soon as it senses movement.  The Pod is always ready to go and it knows when you start and stop.  There is no need to run with your phone to keep track of the data and you can sync your Pod to the MilestonePod App to view detailed performance data and gait metrics.  The Pod works everywhere, even indoors and no charging is needed.

The MilestonePod retails for $24.95 and can be purchased at: http://www.milestonepod.com/the-product/the-milestone-pod/

Handcrafted jewelry pieces make GREAT stocking stuffers.  Pura Vida Jewelry offers gorgeous handmade pieces and each bracelet is carefully handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica.  The commitment to their craft is conveyed through the quality of their gorgeous work.  Pura Vida Charity Collection was created to give back to different causes all over the world.  Pura Vida is partnered with over 190 charities and have donated  more than $935,358 to date.  Pura Vida also donates 1% of their annual net revenue to environmental organizations worldwide.  The goal of Pura Vida is to continue to expand the charity line and support as many causes as possible.  These gorgeous bracelets (pictured above) have been favorites of mine to use on a daily basis because they are dressy, yet casual and work well with anything that I’m wearing.

Pura Vida Bracelets retail for $5.00 each or you can select a Style Pack that retails for $65+.  You can purchase your bracelet(s) from Pura Vida at: http://www.puravidabracelets.com/

When it comes to gift giving – I do my best to offer functional gifts to friends and family.  A gift that you can expect from me or a stocking stuffer for all to see would be a reusable tote.  Here in Hawaii, plastic bags are banned and unable to be given out at grocery markets so a great tote makes a perfect gift for anyone.  Urban Market Bags to the rescue.  With Urban Market bags you get 3 or 6 bags per drawstring pack which means you basically have your needs covered with bags should you need them.

Urban Market Bags come in contemporary colors that look great (I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of that bright blue bag you get at one of those big box stores) and they are made of high quality, durable and machine washable fabric.  What I love about them is that they fold up small to fit in a handbag or cupholder of your car as well as a Christmas Stocking and they are just perfect for everyday.Urban Market bags are great to take to the soccer or in my case football field, gym or grocery store and I love that you have three or more bags to take with you and have bags that are stylish.

3 Pack Set retails for $28.00 and 6 Pack Set retails for $40.00 – Urban Market Bags can be purchased at: http://www.urbanmarketbags.com/shop

Probably one of my favorite stocking stuffers to give out this year comes from Topperfino.  If you follow me on Instagram (if not, hello -what are you waiting for? lol) you would have seen me post about Topperfino a few weeks back.  Coffee is such a huge part of our everyday lifestyles – well, in my case, it’s now cocoa and tea since I can’t drink coffee as much as I would like.  Topperfino is a great coffee innovation, a chocolate topper that not only gorgeous but delectable.

Topperfino is the perfect mix for coffee to create an unparalleled coffee art, but it’s a chocolate topper that can be enjoyed with any frothy hot chocolate or foamy drink.  These toppers make fabulous presents.

Get the Limited Edition Holidays Mix – 10 count box for $19.99 or select the design that you think would make a great gift for just $13.99 a 10 count box.  Purchase your Topperfino for yourself or a gift at: http://topperfino.com/

I have mentioned LATHER in a previous Gift Guide for Skin Care and Body Care and couldn’t possibly resist sharing them again.  LATHER has made great stocking stuffers and ornaments packaged appropriately for the holiday season.  The Soap & Candle sets ($18.00 each) make great stocking stuffers as well as the Sugar Plum Kisses Set ($15.00 each) and Vanilla Bath Fizz Combos ($18.00 each).   Each set would make a great addition to anyone’s gift collection and are packaged and ready to go for holiday gift giving.  Simply add a little bow or hang on a tree and you’re ready to go.

FAB Nails by Beauty Junkees is the perfect little size for travel and on the go, but most definitely makes a great gift for anyone’s holiday stocking.  It’s small and fits perfectly inside and it makes a wonderful gift.  FAB (File and Buff) Nail File is a 2-in-1 Set that includes the best glass nail file and a case.  The file is perfect for natural fingernails and a great nail care alternative to nail polish

This nail file is a great solution for men and women and if you can’t wear nail polish – you’ll enjoy this one.  You can keep your nails looking FAB with a high gloss finish that lasts up to four weeks.  FAB Nails crystal glass file lasts up to a year, depending on how you care for it and your use.  It’s gentle on the nails like a chamois and can be used as a buffer in a back and forth direction, sealing the keratin layers together and preventing peeling and chipping.  Unlike harsh Emery boardst hat can cause the keratin layers to shed, leaving your nails thin and sometimes peeling – FAB Nails is a great solution for a smooth, ridge free glossy finish.

This awesome nail file retails for $14.97 and can be purchased here.

I’ve been a long time fan of The Body Shop and I’m absolutely loving their new releases for the year.  Any makeup lover would absolutely adore these Down to Earth Eye Palettes that have been recently released.  These Limited Edition Eyeshadow Quads are a winter must have and are a part of The Body Shop’s Cruelty-free makeup collection.  With 100% vegetarian formulation, which contains no carmine, petrolatum, gluten or mineral oil – these gifts will make a great find for anyone that wants to do good, feel good and look good this holiday season and always.

Speaking of beauty lovers, lippies make great holiday stocking stuffers.  Having to narrow down my favorites is nearly impossible, so I figured what better product to choose than a lippy that will protect the lips during the colder months.  FarmHouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms have been a staple for my lips this Fall and Winter and I thought these would make great stocking stuffers.  Available in Coconut Beach and Whoopie! Cream, these lip balms are so sleek and ready to rock out any pout.

Made with jojoba oil and shea butters, these lip balms promote healing and hydration with a long-wear formula that lasts and lasts with one application.  They have a light fragrance and taste, but overall I love that they leave my lips hydrated all day long.  These lip balms are perfect for travel and on the go and will be a great gift for anyone that needs a little lip therapy.

The perfect little nail kit for the nail lover’s Christmas Stocking would be great nail wraps or decals.  I was recently introduced to Glossique Nail Deco which makes it easy for anyone to have a gorgeous manicure at anytime.  Say goodbye to dry-time, chipping and harsh chemicals and have a wonderful manicure for those holiday parties.  I picked up a few of these to put in each of my nieces stockings this year because they are so fun and easy to use.  Glossique offers a variety of different designs and they literally can be put on in minutes at anytime.

Personalized gifts make great stocking stuffers too.  Whether they are handcrafted using your own creativity or you utilize a service and put your own spin on things, I love a great personalized gift in my stocking.  This cute square compact mirror you see here is a great gift.  Retailing for $15.95 you can create your own by adding your own text and image.  I used a photo of a sunflower that I took in my garden and added fun text that I love.  The options are endless and you can personalize it with a family photo or anything you see fit.

I certainly didn’t forget about the kiddos in our lives.  Stocking Stuffers are so fun to shop for when it comes to kids because they are so happy to get fun little things that they can play with.  My sons are no exception and I love that we can easily put small and fun gifts into their stocking and they will cherish it all.  Lego Mixels are one of my favorite things to stash into a stocking each year.  Mixels are created by Lego and are similar to basic lego in that you can build different characters utilizing a set of legos to create from.  My sons love them and have quite a collection of these little guys so it’s always fun to add to their sets.

Lego Mixels can be purchased at different locations like Walmart, Target and other stores and I love that they range in price from $4.99 and up so there is a Mixels set for anyone.

The National Geographic Bug Dig Kits are something my sons love and that I love giving out as gifts.  Each set allows you to dig up 3 real bugs and kids love to uncover these perfectly preserved insect specimens (spiny spider, fortune beetle and scorpion).  Of course – there are a bunch of different bug kits online and National Geographic and Dr. Cool’s kits are our favorites.  These make great stocking stuffers or gifts and offer an educational adventure for each child that gets one.  Children will learn all about their speciments as well as many other fascinating anthropods and it becomes a cool interactive lesson with a hands-on science kit.  The bugs can be kept and inspected in all angles as the bugs are preserved in transparent acrylic for easy examination.

These fun sets retail for about $10 – $20 and can be purchased here.

Like most of my gift guides this 2016 – this one is particularly lengthy, but I wanted to ensure to provide all of you, my readers with a variety of different things to help inspire your holiday gift shopping.  Christmas is 13 days away and if you’re still out shopping, I definitely suggest checking out some of these finds.  A few things I didn’t include in my gift guide but definitely suggest are:

  • Pens or Pencils (I love getting new fun gel pens for the holiday – they are great gifts for a planner lover or student)
  • Candy Canes (I absolutely love seeing all of the different candy canes now available in stores, grab a box of canes and put a few in a stocking.  Because, everyone loves a great sweet treat)
  • Body lotion (I didn’t include this one in the list, but I love getting some new body lotion for holidays – anything sweet smelling is right for me)
  • homemade goods (I make a pie or chex mix, homemade fudge or something delectable to give to my postman, delivery guys and friends and family.  Sometimes making things from the heart are the best goods anyone will receive)

** Holiday Gift Giving Tip: Keep in mind shipping times and delivery schedule when ordering online and find out from the company prior to purchasing if it will be shipped and delivered in time for holiday gift giving.

When I was younger, my dad used to say that it was a challenge to buy a gift for the man who has everything… happy life, lots of possessions, roof over his head and it’s something that I always remember when out shopping this time of year.  But, this year – I though about it and realized that while I’m thinking of things to buy for the men in my life, my man is trying to figure out what to get me.  It’s no secret that I am a lover of all things beauty – it is what I talk about here on the blog several times a week, right?  It can be a challenge for my husband to buy “beauty related” items for me each year, so most of the time he just gives me his credit card and says… “have fun”.  But, not every one has that opportunity and sometimes shopping for a woman who loves beauty and makeup can be a daunting task.  Today, I share with you some of my favorite beauty items that I think would make anyone happy to receive.  If you are on the hunt for something for the lady in your life, this holiday gift guide may be for you.

Oh Colour Pop how I love thee.  When it comes to makeup, one of my biggest collections of cosmetic products comes from Colour Pop Cosmetics.  Whether it’s their highlighters or blushes, lipsticks or eye shadows I haven’t met a Colour Pop product I wasn’t happy to get.  With Colour Pop’s release of the Hello Kitty Collection  I basically got Colour Pop and Hello Kitty in one little selection and both are such loves I couldn’t contain the happy.  Anything from Colour Pop would make a great gift and the quads they have available in a wide variety of shades would make any beauty lover happy.  If I had to pick, I definitely suggest getting the shadows – with over 120 shadows myself, trust me when I say – I love them.

Colour Pop – $5.00 to $40.00 (depending on what you purchase) http://www.colourpop.com

Lengthy Fiber Mascara ($16.00), Endless Silky Eye Pencil ($12.00), Endless Brow Gel Pencil ($11.00) and Shea Butter Lip Balm ($8.00) would make a perfect gift combined together and wrapped in a cute makeup bag.  For the woman that loves a great day look that she can wear to work or out running errands.

You can purchase these Pixi items and more at: http://www.pixibeauty.com/ or at your local Target store.

One of my favorite makeup brush brands has released a gorgeous Contour Palette.  Beauty Junkees, a brand I’ve talked about numerous times has recently rolled out some new goodies in their line.  Besides their makeup brushes and accessories, Beauty Junkees has recently released a Contour Palette that is refillable and perfect for any makeup lover.  The Contour & Highlighting Palette makes enhancing your beauty and minimizing facial features a breeze.  You get powder contour shades to add dimension and to define your cheekbones, jaw, forehead and nose as well as highlighting shades that will lift, brighten and give you a soft radiant glow.  This palette is perfect for every day use and I love that the palette is not only refillable, it’s magnetic.  With 5 silky soft pressed matte powders to compliment a beauty lovers complete look.

Contouring shades include:  Fawn, Java and Truffle  Highlighting shades include:  Banana, Vanilla and Sand.  This palette is great for most skin tones and you can either use a light hand or build up the powders to your desired intensity.  Did I also mention you could use this palette as eye shadow shades or even a brow definer.  The options are absolutely endless.

Retail cost:  $24.97 and can be purchased at: https://shop.beautyjunkees.com/products/contour-and-highlighting-kit

Beauty Junkees has also won me over with their fab 5 piece Pro Contouring & Highlighting Kit.  I have raved about Beauty Junkees brushes before and last year I even featured a set in a Holiday Gift Guide.  This year is no exception and I’m so excited to bring you this kit of brushes for the makeup lover.  This brush set includes the Pro Sculptor Brush, Pro Detailer Brush, Pro Duo Fiber Brush, Pro Highlighter Brush, Pro Contouring Makeup Brush and a great makeup brush case for storage or travel.  Each brush comes with high density synthetic taklon bristles and are vegan friendly.  With a solid wood handle, double crimped copper ferrule and bristles that do not shed – you or the makeup lover in your life will have brushes that work with creams, liquids, minerals and powders.

Considering the cost of one highlight or contouring brush from popular cosmetic brands, this set includes everything you or your loved one needs to literally have that highlight and contour ON FLEEK.  I am absolutely in love with this brush set and haven’t stopped using these brushes since I got my hands on them.  After several washes the bristles have held together nicely, the brushes pick up my liquid, cream and powder products with ease and that sponge… YAAASSSS – it’s amazing and so soft.

This 5 pc Pro Contouring & Highlighting Kit retails for $24.97 and can be purchased at: https://shop.beautyjunkees.com/products/5-piece-pro-contouring-highlighting-kit

Speaking of soft sponges, I’m absolutely loving the sponge set from Beauty Junkees as well.  It’s hard to find a good cosmetic sponge that is similar to the expensive name brand without sacrificing quality.  For less than the price of one highend brand makeup sponge, you get four awesome sponges to create your work of art.  This 4 piece Pro Beauty Sponge Set from Beauty Junkees includes the Pink Teardrop (the traditional blender shape used for all over face application), the Purple Pear (similar to the Pink Teardrop with an improved ergonomic shape that allows for an optimal grip), Green Oval (for the makeup perfectionist with dual tips for precise concealing and cleaning up of makeup errors), and the Blue Sculptor (a flat head sponge best used for pressing on foundation for heavier coverage, using a stippling effect to create an airbrushed look).  Each of the sponges work best when damp but can be used wet or dry.  They are latex free, non-allergenic and works with all kinds of makeup from creams to liquids to minerals and powders.  They are easy to wash and reusable – a simple mild soap or baby shampoo will get it clean and ready for it’s next use.

Over the years I have tried MANY different types of cosmetic sponges and as I mentioned above, while some are quite affordable, that doesn’t mean they are good quality.  The Beauty Junkees cosmetic and beauty sponges feel and work like professional grade sponges.  They are soft and work well to blend the product, but doesn’t soak the product up so that you are wasting your makeup.  The blend well and effortlessly, no matter the sponge you decide to use at any given time.  Like I said, the cost of this 4 pack is cheaper than that of a Beauty Blender – one Beauty Blender, so it’s worth checking out for yourself.

The 4 Piece Pro Beauty Sponge Set retails for $14.97 and can be purchased at: https://shop.beautyjunkees.com/products/flawless-beauty-makeup-blender-sponges-sample-pack

Of course, a great gift for any beauty lover is something that they can carry their beauty goods in and a Cosmetics & Jewelry Folio is a great solution for that.  Instead of packing all of your beauty necessities in separate bags for travel or storage, the Cosmetics and Jewelry Folio will have you organized and ready to go.  The Folio includes a built-in zipper compartment, a detachable zipper pouch and numerous elastic pockets to hold all your cosmetics, makeup and jewelry.

The Folio folds in half, making it easier to pack and giving it a sleeker more flatter profile than most cosmetic bags.  I love that it’s made with 500 denure polyester with a grew mesh lined interior to help protect your products when in transit.  You also get a sturdy strap for easy transport.  Once at your destination or using at home, you can hang the Folio with it’s rubber-tipped metal hanger over a knob, rod or hook.  It’s the perfect little vanity for on the go.

Face masks and cleansers make wonderful gifts for the beauty lover.  I’ve included a few that I’ve tried and enjoy in my list here but the options are endless and you can search Honeygirl’s World for different masks that I’ve reviewed over the years.  Whether it is affordable or luxury – a great face mask makes for a wonderful gift.

Yes to Coconut Hydrate & Restore Paper Mask ($3.00 each), Feather & Bone Face Gems ($15.00 for 60 tablets), Valentia Detoxifying Clay Mask ($25.00), Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for Face and Body ($40 – $72.50), Freeman Feeling Beautiful Travel Size Face Masks ($1.99 – $3.99), Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50), Miss Spa Assorted Face Masks ($2.99 – $3.99)

Each of these face masks can be found at their respected websites, Ulta Beauty or stores like Target and Walmart.  They range in price and need but make great stocking stuffers and fun gifts for any beauty lover.

Beauty is not just about makeup so I wanted to be sure that I included products that also catered to the skin care lover.  I do have a Holiday Gift Guide on the site aimed specifically towards skin and body care (which you can find here), but these products are those that go hand and hand with makeup too.  The Trophy Skin RejuvadermMD is a Professional Grade Home Microdermabrasion System.  I’m talked about Trophy Skin products before as the RejuvaliteMD happens to be one of my FAVORITE skin care devices.  I was very ecstatic to try the RejuvadermMD and have been loving it since getting my hands on it.

The RejuvadermMD offers you smoother and more radiant skin anywhere and anytime.  With salon-quality microdermabrasion you can get soft, clear, glowing skin on the go.  This unit is travel friendly and portable.  It’s a lightweight and uses a high tech combo of diamond exfoliation and gentle suction to buff away dead skin cells, revealing the radiant, glowing skin that sits just below the surface.  The RejuvadermMD safely and effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines, age spots, sun damage and mild scarring at a fraction of the cost of in-office treatments.

The RejuvadermMD retails for $170.57 and can be purchased at: https://trophyskin.com/products/rejuvadermmd

Facial cleansing tools are an important part of my skin care and beauty routine, so I knew I just had to include my favorites in this post.  The Michael Todd Soniclear Elite has been a favorite device of mine over the last two years and I love that you can purchase a variety of attachments.  I love pairing my Soniclear with the Luxe Cashmere brush head for my sensitive skin and I totally dig that the Soniclear has a selection of designs and colors to choose from.  I have written about the Soniclear Elite on my site before so you can get a full review of this product here on the site.

Soniclear Elite retails for:  $149.00 and can be purchased at:  http://www.michaeltoddbeauty.com/soniclear-elite/  *Accessories can also be purchased on the site.

Another facial cleansing tool that has been a favorite of mine is my Foreo Luna.  Since getting my original Luna, Foreo has made many improvements to their original device and has released the Luna 2, Luna Mini 2, Luna Go and IRIS.  The brush is revolutionary and designed to help with facial cleansing and anti-aging – giving you a complete and personalized cleansing.  I LOVE that the LUNA 2 is now available in four specialized brush types for tailor-made skin care and I look forward to picking up the Sensitive Skin (purple) cleansing tool when my current Luna is ready to be retired.  The next-generation Luna 2 facial cleansing brush utilizes up to 2x the T-Sonic power to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, unclog pores of makeup residue and remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil.  This brush helps to improve the absorption of your favorite skin care products while offering you a great cleanse each and every time.

The Foreo Luna 2 retails for $199.00 and can be purchased at: https://www.foreo.com/

The Veet Infini’Silk Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System retails for about $130.00 and can be purchased here.

Of course – there are a lot of different gift items that you can give to the beauty lover in your life and these are just a few that I enjoy and though I would share with all of you.  Remember that Christmas is about love and time together and the gifts are just icing and a cherry on top.

I think subscription boxes are definitely something cool, especially this time of year when we can’t quite figure out what to get those on our shopping lists.  In years past, I have purchased a few months of gift subscriptions to boxes that were beauty related or skin care related, even food ones – but I have never heard of a candle subscription before.  I was pleasantly surprised to be introduced to Vellabox about a month ago when the company reached out and asked if I wanted to give them whirl and let me just say – I’m very impressed with goods I received.

“Curating Your Inner Light!”

Vellabox is a monthly subscription service that offers you the finest candles from the finest American Artisans each month.  When you receive your Vellabox your senses will absolutely awaken with scents and beauty of gorgeous gifts inside.  Vellabox curates the perfect combination of the highest quality candles and handpicked products that compliment your candle.  Each are non-toxic, lead-free and hand-poured from the best companies in our country.  Each and every month you get great indulgence and lovely fragrances for you to try.

Each candle comes beautifully wrapped, but I took the photos after opening the box, so I was unable to wrap them as neatly as they arrived.  I did however open the box live on camera, which you can watch here to see how they were received.

I love how sweetly they were packaged and the scent of each candle wafted through my room immediately upon opening the box.  Each candle was packaged in what seemed to me to be a canvas like wrapping and tied with a little bow with twine.

Vellabox comes in three different box selections for your choosing:

  • Lucerna ($10/month) – which includes One 4oz. Candle per month and a surprise gift.  Your candle has an approximate burn time of 25 hours. $2.00 shipping
  • Ignis ($20/month) – includes One 8oz. candle per month and a surprise gift.  Your candle has an approximate burn time of 50 hours.  $2.00 shipping
  • Vivere ($30/month + free shipping) includes One 8oz candle and One 4oz Candle per month with a surprise gift.  Both candles have a burn time of 75 hours total.

For testing, I received the Vivere Box which included two candles and a special gift (which was a scrumptious snack bar).  Both candles are so lovely and smell wonderful.

  • The Firewood Spice + Smoke Soy Candle from Glint Candles retails for $18.00 (8oz) and the fragrance reminds me of a camp fire with a hint of marshmallows roasting over the fire, but that’s just my opinion.  This scent includes:  Chopped Firewood, campfire smoke and notes of toasted cinnamon and orange.  Top Notes: Cypress, orange, Core: Pine, cinnamon, clove, Base: Smoke, oakmoss, fir, balsam
  • The Often Wander Amber Vanilla Candle retails for $18.00 (4 oz.) is an all natural soy wax candle that is hand poured in San Diego.  It i ncludes a musky, sweet and intoxicating fragrance that is both masculine and feminine.  It’s sensual and smells lovely.  Often Wanders candles are made with quality essential and fragrance oils and a cotton wick.

If you are a candle lover that’s looking for different candles to try or on the hunt for a gift for a loved one this holiday season, I definitely suggest checking out Vellabox.  Vellabox also offers a little shop on their website to select individual candles for purchase (without the subscription).  I definitely suggest checking out Vellabox to see if this is something that you or someone you love would enjoy.

Shopping for men, for me… is well, easy.  I’m the only woman or girl in our house, so it’s second nature to know the likes and dislikes of my men.  But, shopping for any guy can be a challenge.  I’ve been lucky over the years because I have a Daddy that is happy with anything you get him, so long as it isn’t underwear – that’s a long story… and a brother that is always happy with chocolate or any type of food.  I think overall I don’t seem to have a difficult time shopping for these guys, but I know that shopping for anyone can be a challenge and sometimes men are so simplistic, it makes it easier for others to over think their gift.  Today I’m going to be sharing with you a few gift items that I think would make any of the men in your life happy.  Now, these are items that I have tried or have gifted to the men in my life and they’ve been a hit.  Keep in mind that these items are just some ideas, be creative and have some fun with whatever you decide to choose.

Coffee or Tea?  My husband and I are both Tea and Coffee Drinkers (well, the hubs drinks coffee now, I can’t any longer).  Since we are always on the go, a good coffee mug that we can take with us is always a steal and for my husband – it’s an important feature.  The Contigo AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug (retail $24.99) is a great option for men on the go who love coffee or tea.  (I wrote about this mug on the blog a few weeks ago which you can read about here.) The AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug is literally a Holy Grail in our household.  It’s leak-proof & Spill-Proof, easy to clean, stays hot for hours and thoughtfully engineered with a CleanGuard lid to keep out dirt and germs.  It’s the perfect one-handed drinking companion that’s easy with a push of a button.

You can purchase the Contigo AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug here.

The Presse by Bobble (retail $29.99) is another fun option.  While it can be taken on the go because of the type of lid it has, my favorite thing about this mug is that it is a brew, press and go mug.  While the Snow Man design may not be something your husband or man in your life would enjoy, I definitely suggest checking out the designs and features (available also in black, white, red, copper, gold, rose gold and stainless steel – the snowman is a limited edition design).  The Press by Bobble is a high-grade, stainless steel drinking vessel that literally allows you to simple brew, press and take your drink with you.  It’s a BPA-free, dishwasher-safe Presse that features a micro-filter for taste and 3-wall insulation to keep your coffee hot.  This is the perfect option for men like my dad who love to drink coffee but are not interested in investing in brewing a whole pot because he is the only one in the  house that drinks coffee.  All he has to do is simply add his coffee grounds to the cup, add hot water, presse and fresh brewed coffee at your finger tips.

myCharge RazorUltra Portable Charger retails for $59.99 and is a great investment for the man in your life that is always on the go.  Like I mentioned previously, my husband and I use our phones for EVERYTHING.  Many of the apps and things we do on our phone drain the battery quickly so having a Power Bank is important and definitely essential.  My family and I are huge supporters of myCharge because we know that their products work and are made of quality.  Let’s just say, we don’t leave the house without it.

The myCharge RazorUltra Portable Charger is crafted from anodized aluminum making it tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear that we dish out.  It is a 12000 mAh which makes it one of the most powerful chargers in the myCharge lineup.  The RazorUltra has a 3.4A shared output and can power two tablets/smartphones simultaneously and offers you 90 extra hours of power boots which is more than enough to keep your devices powered during a weekend road trip.  The RazorUltra comes complete with a cable for convenient recharging and it’s sleek and enough to fit into any carry on or work bag.  It’s a quick charger which is a plus to allow for fast charge while on the go so you do not miss any opportunities for camera use, etc. and it’s pre-charged and ready to go for you when you get it – so whom ever receives this as a gift can use it right out of the box.  Recharges via a micro-USB cable.

There are a lot of fun presents and ideas to give as gifts for the men in your life and this collection of them are some of the things that I have purchased for my men or that we have already used.  Many of the things in this list are products we enjoy already and that my husband swears by, so I love that I can share them with all of you.

I love Christmas shopping, especially for my children.  When it comes to Christmas, my boys are so laid back and easy to shop for, that it makes surprising them each year that much easier.  I think children should have a wide range of gifts from clothes and toys to books and games and I’m always excited to write up my list of treats for my boys each year.  Shopping for kids can be a challenge, at any age… so I have compiled a list of presents that are reasonably priced for any child.  No matter the age, I’m sure you will find something in my list that your children may enjoy.  Let’s get started, shall we?

Trekz Titanium Mini Wireless Headphones ($129.95) – These headphones from AfterShokz are the ideal gift for my teenager.  Kevin Ka’eo is at the age where he works on projects for school on his iPad and Tablet and needs a quality headphones that can take the beating that teens dish out.  He also runs and jogs so I really want to ensure I have a product that will work for him and provide him with quality sound.

The Trekz Titanium Mini Wireless Headphones are lightweight and comfortable.  The are stereo headphones which are the safest alternative to traditional sport headphones and earbuds.  With bone conduction technology, an open ear design and a suite of convenient features, the Trekz headphones deliver premium music play and crystal clear calling without any compromise.  This headphone is designed with athletes in mind and are sweatproof and secure – making them ideal for my son.  They will allow you to hear your surroundings – no matter where life takes you.

4id Power Spurz Light Up Heels ($19.95) – If you have little ones or even teenagers (heck, I even use them), Power Spurz are a great gift.  They keep you safe and visible through your outdoor training, walking, running or everything in between where you need to be lit up so you are visible.  The lightweight heel spur has two available settings – pulse and continuous light.  The piece slides conveniently on the back of your shoe and glows in a vibrant LED light.  Since my family and I often do night time walking around our block, or are out and about at the local festivals, these work perfect for the boys and they were a hit at Halloween.  They come in five different colors and I definitely suggest it.  They fit on my shoes as well as the boys so you have many options to utilize these.

LUX – The Principled Block Lux Blox ($29.99 +) – All three of my sons LOVE Legos or anything that will allow them to build creations to their heart’s desire.  I love encouraging their imagination and the fun without the screen, so Lux Blocks are definitely a fun toy for anyone to play with – kids and adults too.

Lux is Made in the USA and was created by artist/inventor Michael Acerra because he and his wife Healther wanted to give the world a block that could bring everything as nature does.  These construction blocks allow you build and make structures that curve, bend and move.  The come with a unique, patent-pending snap and lock hinge system that allows you to build a structure that flexes, twists and turns.

There are different sets available and like I mentioned before, it doesn’t matter your age or your child’s age – they will love Lux as much as we do.  While we still LOVE Legos in our house, Lux has easily become a building block we enjoy and I have it on my list to purchase several sets for my nieces and nephews.

Magic Sketch Art Tablet For Kids ($29.95) – I love As Seen on TV finds and the Magic Sketch is definitely one of them.  This fun and new way for k8ids to draw, play and learn is flexible with an LCD screen that is transparent.  The Magic Sketch allows kids to trace with the provided stencils or from their own images and creating all kinds of amazing art is fun for all ages.  Unlike most tablets, the Magic Sketch is super kid proof.  Kids can drop it, toss it, even step on it and it won’t break.  It’s completely water resistant, so if they have a spill, it will wipe off and they can keep going.  It’s got advanced internal electronics so you can clear the screen with just a push of a button.

Each Magic Sketch retails for $29.95 and includes:

  • Magic Sketch
  • Protector Guard
  • 1 Roller
  • 3 Stamps
  • 20 Learning Stencils
  • 20 Games Stencils
  • 20 Art Stencils

I especially love this as a gift because it’s perfect for travel, mess free and I don’t have to worry about replacing an expensive device if it breaks or gets lost or stolen.  It’s an ideal gift for all ages and I can’t wait to doodle on it myself.

Books & E Readers Make Great Gifts ($10 +) – My sons all love to read, so a great book (or two or three) or an E Reader like the Amazon Fire Tablet make great gifts.  These items make fabulous stocking stuffers or fun gifts for unwrapping.  Each year, I select at least two books for each of my boys and wrap them up.  This year – I’ll be purchasing an Amazon Fire Tablet for the three of them to download some of their favorite Kindle books (that way there is more room for my books on mine… lol) and with Amazon Prime and Amazon Underground – many books are free to read and download.  A basic Amazon Fire Tablet will make a great gift because it provides a plethora of apps and internet capability at reasonable costs.  You can easily get a Tablet for $50 now a days and it’s worth it.

A few books that the boys have been loving lately – The Adventures of Camp Nana Papa and The Spinfords are great classics that I think any child would like.  My eldest is currently reading The Kingdom Oceana (not currently pictured) and highly suggests that one.

Stompeez Slippers ($19.99) – Slippers with Personality.  These slippers are absolutely adorable and perfect for my twins.  They are fun, soft and comfy.  Walk, stomp or jump and Stompeez will pop to life.

I thought these would be the perfect gift for Luke & Isaiah because they love soft and cuddly things.  They come in different sizes and a variety of different designs – 9 total.  Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Batman, Nemo, Dori, Shopkins, Happy Puppy, TRex Dinosaur and so much more.

buddy balls, buddy, teddy bear, ball, kids toy, toys, toy review, children, kids, review, stuffed animal,

Buddy Balls ($19.99) – Zip it, Flip it, Love it!  The boys and I have talked about Buddy Balls here on the blog before and it was a rave for a product.  We love Buddy Balls and definitely thought it would make a great Holiday Gift to include in our gift guide.  Buddy Balls are soft, cuddly and so sweet.  They are little bears that you can zip up and flip into a ball to play with.  The boys love them and I love them so much, I’ve purchased several of these as gifts for the holiday.

You can read about Buddy Balls and our review on these sweeties here.

I realize that most of the gifts I listed in this post are really for boys, but hey – I grew up a tomboy and I loved to play with all the boy things when I was younger, so I guess many of these things really gravitate in my mind as fun gifts.  The fact of the matter is – they are all unisex and the gifts like Stompeez and Buddy Balls are sweet presents for little girls as well as any of the items I’ve chosen here.  Each of these were selected because we have tested them ourselves and the boys and I really went through and found the ones that we would love to get or enjoy.  At the end of the day, gift giving is about love and the thought is always what counts in our house.

I do have something fun for all of you.  The boys and I are working in collaboration with AfterShokz and giving away a Trekz Titanium Mini for someone this holiday season.  Check out the Giveaway Widget below to enter.

When it comes to skin care and body care items, I’m always excited for the Holidays – because with Holidays, come awesome gift sets.  This Holiday Gift Guide offers you a selection of treats for anyone and any pocket book.  Whether you are shopping for yourself this holiday season or looking to treat someone you love, you’ll find a selection of Holiday goodies to treat yourself or someone else.  Some of these brands may be “new to you” selections while others are tried and true, but I wanted to incorporate a selection of products that I love highly recommend.

The Body Shop has long been one of my favorite body care and skin care brands.  I’ve been using products from them since before I started blogging, back when we still had a shop here on island on Maui.  But, I am still a lover of their products and purchase from them online all the time.  Recently I received a package from the brand that was specifically personalized for me.  Now, it’s no secret I love The Body Shop’s Body Butters, so when I seen this – I fell in love.

The Body Shop offers a variety of different gifts available for anyone in any size.  Just pick and choose their huge array of smell great and body loving products.  The sets vary in price and size so you will always be able to find something for someone to fit your budget.  And, want to personalize and name your own body butter like mine pictured?  Well – you can head on over to your local The Body Shop location and select one of four animals along with a name to add to cover.  Unfortunately you can’t order these online (shucks), but if you’re near a The Body Shop, these will make a great gift.  Other sets from TBS retail from $10 and up so definitely check it out.  Click here to see what they have available online.

Over the years LATHER has become one of my absolute favorite skin care and body care brands.  I’m mentioned it a number of times here on Honeygirlsworld.com and it’s a brand I continue to use.  Each year they release beautiful sets of treats for stocking stuffers and I’m so excited to share these with you.

The Holiday Stocking Stuffers are the perfect gift sets for your loved ones.  The Vanilla Bath Fizz Combo retails for $18.00 and includes six bath bombs (vanilla & tonka bean and vanilla & citrus).  These are the perfect Winter treat and I love that you get two different aromas in each set.  With moisturizing botanicals including jojoba, coconut and sweet almond with kukui nut oils to condition and nourish the skin.

The Sugar Plum Kisses Set ($15.00) is a duo of lip smoothing scrub and lip conditioning balm.  I absolutely love both of these products having used them before so having them in a set is absolutely fabulous.

And of course, one of my all time favorite stocking stuffers (it was a huge hit for my family and friends last year) is the Soap & Candle Stocking Stuffer Sets.  These gorgeous sets are beautifully packaged (I love it) and retail for $18.00.  These are perfect for hanging on the Christmas Tree or you can give or wrap as you so fit.  Each set has a soap and candle and you can select from Lemongrass, Vanilla and Lavender.  Each duo is encased in a cute little box that resembles a present and I love how festive it all looks.  Each candle smells divine so anyone you gift these to will love them.

You can purchase any of these gorgeous sets for yourself or a loved one at: http://www.lather.com/holidaygiftideas.html

Nourish Natural Bath Products is a new to me brand, but I’ve been absolutely loving the products since getting my hands on them.  Until now, you could only get Nourish products in one of the company’s stores (which is probably why I haven’t heard of it before), but now they are available online.  Nourish offers handmade bath, body and gift items, in beautiful and delectable scents and are perfect for people like me with sensitive skin.  Items from Nourish make great gifts for women, men and even babies.

The Citrus Small Gift Set – $35.00 comes with 2 bars of handmade soap, a 3 oz. shea butter salt scrub, a travel tin soy candle, a shea butter bath fizzie and a nourish lip balm.  They all come delivered and packaged ready for gifting.

The Georgia Peach Glycerin Soap – $6.00 makes the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone.  This soap is absolutely gorgeous and will leave your skin as rich and moist as a ripe, juicy peach with natural humectant glycerin and aloe.  The coconut oil base absorbs quickly, protecting skin against sun damage and smoothing out your complexion.  I love the sweet but subtle fragrance and you or anyone you buy this for will enjoy it.

Nourish has a variety of gift items available for your choosing – so I highly suggest you head on over and check it out.  Any of these make great stocking stuffers or gift selections for your holiday gift list.  http://nourishsavannah.com

Salacia Salts is also a new to me brand but I’ve been loving it since trying it the last month or so.  It’s the perfect selection for the man or woman on your holiday wish list.  These unique bath, body and home items from Salacia are the perfect selection.  Salacia Salts is based in Savannah Georgia and all the items are made there.

You can purchase Salacia Salts here: https://salaciasalts.com/

FarmHouse Fresh is another brand that I’ve been really fancying lately.  While I can attest to loving all of the products I’ve tried from the brand, one that stands out to me as a great Holiday Gift is the Sweeping Softness 3 Step Body Sampler.  There are three different selections to choose from for the 3 Step Body Samplers, I’ve only tried the Sweeping Softness set.  I love that you can try three different body care sets for a great cost and decide for yourself if you want to get the full size.  FarmHouse Fresh Body Oils and Scrubs are some of my favorites, so ultimately – while you can’t go wrong with anything you get as a gift from FHF, these little sets are perfect selections as holiday presents.

AT FarmHouse Fresh you’ll find a plethora of skin care crafted around delicious food and drinks using 99.6% natural and naturally derived ingredients.  All products are proudly made in the U.S.A.  You can purchase this set and so much more from FarmHouse Fresh at: http://farmhousefreshgoods.com/

Marula Oil has been a favorite brand of mine for about 4 years now.  The first product I tried from the brand was the Pure Marula Facial Oil and it continues to be one of my favorites till this day.  I figured that since I love it so and this is all about my favorites, that I just had to share these with all of you.

The Pure Marula Facial Oil ($58 – $78) is a luxury item and comes with a hefty cost, but using it just once may definitely win you over.  Marula Facial Oil is light and hydrating – perfect for the winter months when our skin tends to be driest.  This oil absorbs quickly into the skin without a greasy feel or residue and you’ll immediately notice a boost in long lasting hydration and an improvement in your skin’s elasticity.  Pure Marula Facial Oil by Marula is the only doctor endorsed, scientifically validated facial oil, with 60% more antioxidants than the leading Argan Oil.  This oil and my coconut oil are my holy grail must haves to keeping my skin looking youthful.

A new to me product from Marula is the Foaming Cleansing Oil Towelettes.  My gosh do I love these.  Retailing for $10 for a pack of 10 (yes, a bit steep – but luxurious and wonderful), these wipes cleanse and exfoliate while offering you pure Marula Oil and Alpha Hydroxy Acids.  These are perfect for travel and help rinse away the dirt, grime and more to reveal a glowing, firmer, more radiant looking skin.  I love that they are sulfate-free and ideal for dry, oily or combo skin.

You can purchase these Marula Oil products at: https://marula.com/  (Be sure to check out my post on Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales to see if there are any discounts available).

There are so many different products available on the market today that would make absolutely awesome gifts for the holiday season.  If you have a skin care, body care or bath and body addict in your life, any of these gifts would make great selections.  There are a few brands that I love to include in Gift Guides each year that I haven’t included in this year’s like Tatcha, but please keep in mind that I still love these brands – I just wanted to offer some variety in selection this year and introduce you to brands you may have not heard of or products you may have not tried.

Hi Friends!  I know many of you are planning your shopping trip for Black Friday and your online shopping for Cyber Monday.  Today I figured I would share with you some of the deals from brands I have worked with before or companies I enjoy.  I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of shopping in stores, especially on Black Friday.  I’ve done it a few times and I’m definitely not a fan.  But, when it comes to shopping online, from the comforts of my own home and in my pajamas if I want – yes, count me in for Cyber Monday.  Below is a list of discounts, deals and mentions of products that I do like or enjoy from big and small businesses.  Take advantage of these if you can to help save you a little money in the long run.
