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.

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.

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,

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.

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.

True Lipids Eczema Kit

I have been using the True Lipids Eczema Kit by Cheryl Lee MD now for the last month and it has made my favorites a few times.  Having to deal with severe eczema, it has been quite a challenge for me to overcome and  traditional creams prescribed to me to use on my skin have not been ideal and I actually don’t like them.  With just a couple of weeks of using these products, I have noticed how quick they work, how beneficial for my skin they are and I am loving them.

I apologize if you came here to enter a giveaway – but it was cancelled expectantly.  Stay tuned for my review which will be live within the week.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Yay… I had the awesome opportunity to get my second ever Voxbox from Influenster.  I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t completely excited for it – because in the past the box took over a month to arrive and there was two instances I was approved for Boxes and it turned out that since I lived in Hawaii – I couldn’t get any.  I’m glad that they have improved on their qualifications over the last few years (I originally signed up in 2011) so I have the opportunity to part-take in the fun.

Influenster J'Adore Voxbox

This month’s box was super exciting for me.  The J’Adore box is a little Valentine from Influenster to me.  It includes a bunch of fun goodies to share with my loved ones and to enjoy on my own.  Check out my video reveal (embedded below) or watch directly on YouTube here.

Contents of the box included:

Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask –  $9.39

  • I have used this product once and so far I am liking it.  It hasn’t dried out my very sensitive skin yet.

Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates – $5.29

  • Of course, who doesn’t love Hershey’s Kisses.  Myself, Husband and sons have enjoyed these goodies.

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray – $9.99

  • I haven’t had the opportunity to use this product yet – but I will be using it this week and will post follow up photos and mini review.

KISS Looks So Natural Lashes – $3.99

  • I am a huge fan of KISS Lashes, they are some of my favorites.  I haven’t used these yet, but I will be sure to share when I do.

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas – $4.49 for a carton of 20 tea bags

  • So yummy and delicious.  I love these teas and will be picking up the box at my local grocery soon.

Vaseline Men Spray Lotion (select influensters received this to share with their husbands) – $7.99

  • My hubby has had an odd schedule this week, but on his next day off… it’s time to indulge in some chocolates and some lotion.  I’ll be sure to post the deets when we try it and how he likes it.

So far I am loving the goodies in this voxbox and I’m super thankful that I was included in this one – it has been a year since my last box.  I’ll be posting updates and details on the products as I have the chance to use them and try them out.  Did you get a Voxbox lately?  What are your thoughts on what you received?  Do you know what Influenster is and do you have an account?  If not – let me know and I’ll invite you if you are not taking part in it yet. 🙂

Yay – it’s my Birthday!  I can’t believe I’m 34 years old already – geez, where did the time go?  I wanted to celebrate my birthday with all of you so I decided I would have a giveaway.  Check out all the details below along with a list of goodies that you can win.  I’ll be sure to post photos of the prizes later (so check back soon) but I go over all of the prizes in my video (embedded below).  Check out the rules and enter.  Thanks for being awesome!
