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.

**a full review of this planner will be coming here to Honeygirlsworld.com soon – so stay tuned.

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.

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.

Pedi Pamper is another great find for the holiday gift giving season because they are great for treating your feet during the colder months.  Pedi Pamper is a 7 Day Foot Peeling Mask that offers a pain free solution to dry callused feet.  This product is absolutely easy to use and you can purchase it via their Amazon site.  I love products like these for Holiday Gift Giving because they make great additions to a “Spa or Pampering Gift Bag”, simply tuck it into a basket or gift bag with other items like lotion, bath bombs and even a gorgeous toe nail polish and your gift is 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.

Nail Lacquers make great holiday gifts and awesome stocking stuffers too.  These gorgeous polishes from SpaRitual are becoming some of my favorites because they allow me to use Glitter for my holiday festivities without the hassle of taking them all off.  The SpaRitual Unveil Peel-Off Basecoat makes a fabulous gift and I highly suggest it for anyone who loves painting their nails with glitter but hates the removal process.

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.

The ZeroWater Silver Tumbler or Blue Tumbler has an Ion Exchange Filter so you can have pure-tasting water anywhere you go.  The ZeroWater Tumbler combines the top performing filtration technology with a sleek, convenient design.  You get great taste out of your tap water whether you are at home, at work or even at the gym or on the go.

Get a fun gift for the Tomboy in your life or just get your Camo Fix.  TomboX’s new collection offers either blue or green in their bralettes, iconic briefs, trunks and boxer briefs.  These selections feature their signature, silky black band for comfort and their cute and stylish camo design.  These are fun to support the troops or to just add a little fun to any wardrobe.  I love buying these because they are sweet and cute without being too revealing so they make great gifts.  Also TomboyX bottoms come in sizes XS to 4XL and their bralettes XS to 3XL so giving it to that girlfriend, sister or anyone else whether they are tomboy or not will be giving them a comfortable gift that will make them feel confident – no matter the size.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

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.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

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.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

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.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

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.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Ah, Hair Care is probably one of those holiday gifts that you don’t expect under the tree.  Let’s face it – hair care really has to do with an individual personal taste, hair texture and overall likes.  But, it’s always a fun thing to receive – especially if you’re not born with luscious locks and love trying new products.  I’m always thankful to get new hair care under my Christmas tree because I go through hair products like I drink water.  This holiday gift guide of hair care goodies is the perfect solution for that holiday stocking stuffer or something fun for your loved one that’s a complete  hair addict.  Good hair day, anyone?

Styling, Nourishment and Overall Hair Care – Macadamia Professional Hair Care has long been one of my favorite hair care lines.  I remember using the brand years ago because I was taking the steps to enhance my natural curls and embrace them.  You can find Macadamia Professional Hair products at many retailers now a day – vs only at the Salon which makes it such a convenience.  Some of my favorite hair products come from the Nourishing Moisture and Natural Oil lines.  If you are looking for a great masque, I highly suggest checking out one from either of those selections.

Hair Treatment For Daily Use – Marula Light Hair Treatment & Styling Oil is one of my favorite hair care products and brands.  It’s no secret that I’m a lover of oil for everything – face, skin and nails and body.  But, since my hair can drink up moisture consistently, I’m always looking for a product that I can use daily without worrying that it will cause my hair to be greasy.  Marula’s hair products are favorites of mine and while they cost a pretty penny – they are luxe treatment for my long locks.  The Light Hair Treatment and Styling Oil is a favorite because it offers my hair gorgeous shine, helps fight frizz and leaves my hair feeling soft and looking great.

Hair Care for your Fur Baby – Isle of the Dogs CocoClean Natural Xtra Clean Shampoo and Detangling Conditioner:  I know this may not be a traditional product to list in a gift guide.  But, I didn’t say this guide was specifically just for humans.  If you put presents under the tree for your fur baby like we do, I think these products would be a great hit.  Ikaika is our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and he is part of our family.  He is not a fan of taking a bath, but absolutely loves CocoClean products.  First of all – these products smell great so we as a family enjoy them and second, these products leave Ikaika’s coat feeling so soft and manageable.  Since Ikaika has long hair, it’s important that we keep his tangles at bay and these products not only keep him smelling great, but leave his hair so soft which makes brushing a breeze.  If you are looking for something new to gift your furry friend this holiday – I definitely suggest checking out this line, it’s awesome.

Let’s face it – shopping for men can be a challenge for anyone and today I am hoping I make your shopping trip a little easier for you.  I am the only girl (woman) in a house filled with men (my husband and 3 sons) so shopping for me is a breeze once I know their style.  Knowing the style of your special gentlemen is key in finding a gift that will suit them.  Most men are not very picky and if they are, you should know by now what they do and don’t like.  Use those things as inspiration to do your shopping and hopefully the gifts I share with you will give you a little idea as to where to start.  Here is my Gift Guide for the Man in your life – use this information wisely. lol

Gift Guide For The Man In Your Life

 

Unconventional Gift Idea: Let me start off by saying, if you are shopping for your husband, fiance or boyfriend and want something a little special and you’re comfortable doing so – boudoir shots or just a really pretty glam shot of you framed in a nice setting could be a great option as a gift.  I didn’t list it above, but it has been a great choice for me a few times already.  There is no need for any nudity and it can be tastefully done and look wonderful.  That makes a great Valentine’s Day gift as well.  One year I took head shots in a pretty top and had my hair styled and makeup done.  My husband still carries it in his wallet.

1. Men’s Arm Candy – I’m a watch addict (most people know this), so each year I buy my husband a new watch either for Christmas or his birthday which is Dec. 1st.  I have my favorite brands to buy him and because of his job G-Shock tends to be a really great brand for wear and can handle his daily use for his job.  There are many other brands out there to select from.  Some of my favorites include:  G-Shock, Invicta, Fossil, ESQ, JORD and Martin & MacArthur.

2. Skin care – My husband has sensitive skin and is always looking for products that will not only work for him but that will be gentle on his skin.  A favorite in our house is Menaji Skin Care for Men.  This brand offers a variety of skin care products for the man in your life including Masques, Shave creams, eye gels and more.  Menaji has an awesome set called:  The David Skin Care Set that includes four travel sized goods in a very cool expandable travel case.  Each product included in the set comes from their “Most Popular” and has a retail value of $135.95 but is currently on sale for $79.00.  This is a great gift for the man who travels for work or who just loves to keep his skin great.

Gift Guide For The Man In Your Life

3. Scarf – If you live in a cold climate… it’s normal to see men walking around with scarves.  It is not the norm here in Hawaii, but I figured I would include it.  Scarves can range in cost from affordable to high end and luxury prices, but a great scarf that gives a man a little swagger is always a great find.  If scarves are not your thing, a great necktie or beenie would be a great fit as well.

4. Fedora or a new Hat– Hats are a huge hit in our house and man we surely have a very large collection.  One of my husband’s favorites (and mine since I tend to take them from him) are Fedoras.  They are classic and make sure a great statement piece to any ensemble.  Fedora’s are fun because they come in different fabric and style and have a variety of colors to choose from.  They offer a swagger to them that most men will like and look really classy.  My husband can wear his with anything but looks quite dapper in a full suit topped with a Fedora.  I totally suggest one of these and they can be the perfect topper to a great outfit.  If your man may not like a Fedora or it may not be his style – a regular hat or something he will enjoy will be an awesome gift too.

5. T-Shirts – We all love a great cozy and soft t-shirt.  I will always pick up at least one t-shirt for my husband during the holiday as a gift.  This year with Star Wars releasing just before Christmas, what better gift than a Star Wars shirt.  A fun cool saying or a neat Star Wars graphic will be a great addition to any man’s wardrobe, especially one who is a Star Wars fan.

6. A New Belt – Ah, nothing says love like buying a new belt – right?  Well, it may not be a traditional choice for a gift, but belts make great gifts for the Father or Father in Law figure in your life.  It’s a professional yet stylish gift that can be purchased in a variety of colors, types like leather or fabric, choice of buckle and even price range.  There are so many available.  I am a huge fan of Coach so when I look at belts, Coach is my go-to for something like this.  But, don’t be afraid – there are a ton of them available to choose from.

Of course, there are other items I like to pick up for my husband including some new tools or drill bits, electronic stuff he can use in his car or even some new knives for cooking but these are some items that will make for fun gifts.  If you have that techie man that has his eye on a new phone case or someone who enjoys music, there are so many items out there to choose from.

  • Music Lover – Amazon Prime Music or Spotify membership.
  • Techie or Smart phone addict – E Gift Card to iTunes or Google Play for their favorite apps.
  • Chef – a new set of Santoku knives or a new saute pan.
  • Sports fanatic – something with their favorite sports team logo.

Remember, the key to shopping for the man in your life is to know their style and what they love.  Once you have all that information set – the rest is easy peezy and shopping is a breeze.  In fact, you can get most of everything you need from online shopping and you don’t even have to step foot outside your door or get out of your PJs.  I hope the holiday shopping is going well for all of you.  Do you have a man that is hard to shop for?  If so – I hope you can find the perfect gift for him this year!

Happy Holidays!

As a child, the holiday season was always my favorite time of year… and it still is.  The scents of delicious food cooking all day, pies and sweet delectable desserts, coffee and teas and everything in between.  Many scents also evoke the memories of my childhood, reminding me that while we didn’t have any money growing up – my parents always made this time special for us and I do my best to translate those memories in our family traditions today.  Since we are still a few days away from really starting the 24 hour cooking sessions the holidays may bring, I love adding candles to our scenery to add warmth and a waft of scents in the air to get us a bit festive.  As a child we didn’t have many candles in our house unless the electricity was out because my mom lost her house to a candle fire when she was little and my siblings and I also have asthma and it made it difficult to breath.  Now that I’m older, I still don’t use candles often due to the asthma, but after trying these Old Factory Candles from the Coffee Shop Set, I’m definitely impressed.

Old Factory Candles Coffee Shop

PRESS SAMPLE

Each Old Factory candle is handmade in the USA and retails for about $30 (currently on sale for $25.00) for a set of three candles. Available in 12 sets – I got Coffee Shop which includes Coffee Bean, Hazel Nut and Chai Tea.

Old Factory Candles Coffee Shop

Each candle is made of natural soy wax, cotton paper wicks and pure fragrance oils.  Candles are guaranteed to burn clean and even and true to scent for 20 hours.  Since the fragrance oils are pure, you may notice that the scent is not as strong as a traditional scented candle (or at least that is my opinion – but I’ve been sick lately so it could just be that I’m stuffed up) though I don’t think that to be a bad thing since I like a light fragrance, not something to overpowering. I am definitely loving that the candles are burning evenly which makes it easy to light.  Each candle is of white wax and labeled with the designated scent at the bottom of the jar.

Old Factory Candles Coffee Shop

Since my family and I are asthmatics, we do not burn candles in our house very often due to the lack of oxygen that can be in the air while the candle is burning.  It is however something we enjoy to do during the colder months and holiday season since it not only makes the house smell yummy but it also adds an essence of warmth to the home.  I have been enjoying the clean burning of these candles and noticed that my family did not have issues with breathing while we had a candle lit.  The scent lasts and I love the light scent of coffee, hazel nut or chai tea through out the home.

Old Factory Candles Coffee Shop

With a variety of fragrances from sexy and sultry to holiday themed and delicious delectables, you can easily find a scent range that will fit in your home and if you don’t have a fire place, this is a sure way to add a little warmth to your house.  I especially love the subtle jar as it will allow you to easily match this to any theme or home decor for any time of year.  Since you get three candles, this could easily make a great stocking stuffer or Holiday gift for someone who loves candles.

Looking to give the entire set away?  Simple tie a cute little ribbon or bow around the box and your set to go.  The box holds all three candles snug and ready for gift delivery.  I personally use the box to store my candles when they are not in use, since I don’t like to keep candles around because the twins are so young I would rather keep it out of reach.
