I have always been a fan of displaying photographs in my home. I think they are more than just images, a display of love. Canvas, metallic, or poster prints can take a plain and boring wall and turn it into an art piece. And, thankfully, canvas prints are easier to order now then they were 10 years ago. Today I’m going to be introducing you to CanvasDiscount as an option to order your favorite images on print.
Who & What is CanvasDiscount?

Ordering from CanvasDiscount is simple and quick. Simply select the option you’d like to have printed, upload the image and make the selection of the size, etc. Then, go through the checkout process.
My experience ordering from CanvasDiscount
Placing the order on the site was very easy and quick as I stated above. I live in Hawaii, so items usually take a while to make its way to me. But, the ordering process and shipping took about 2 – 1/2 weeks to arrive to my home. I’m sure it would have been much faster if Covid-19 was not an issue, but overall, it was pretty quick. My large box (thin but large in size, since I ordered a 24″ x 36″ canvas size) was delivered via UPS and was received intact, without any damage and arrived perfectly. When opening the box (see my video), it was shrink-wrapped with plastic and in the best condition.
Did the Canvas meet expectations in real life?
The canvas is stretched over a wooden frame and no mounting brackets were needed, I simply hung the wooden frame on a nail that was hammered into my wall. Simple and easy to put up for display. The actual print itself is just beautiful. I can’t say it enough how much I love it. I took the image with my phone, using a wireless shutter remote. I’m always worried that when I use a phone camera (even if taken in very high resolution), it can cause pixelization in a print of this size. But, there were absolutely no pixels showing in the print – it’s gorgeous, vibrant and I love it. The colors are exactly as I saw displayed on the computer when ordering – no need to adjust color, etc. and it took the image I had on my screen and printed it as I saw it.
More than just Canvas – Photo Gifts are the Perfect Surprise
The #1 Best Rated US Canvas Shop on Trust Pilot, CanvasDiscount offers more than just canvas prints. Photo blankets, towels, and pillows are available for ordering. You can also customize your own face masks which is a necessity nowadays due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Besides your standard canvas prints, you can also opt to have your photo printed on acrylic, metal, or different photo gifts like mugs, mouse pads, and puzzles. The options for photo gifts are endless and they offer a wide selection to choose from.
Another cool item that CanvasDiscount offers is the Star Map. Your personalized Star Map is a magical individualized chart of the starts that is printed on an elegant Forex photo board. Each star map has a unique configuration and is the perfect memento for any special moment or to give as a gift.
Perfect Site for Gift-giving
If you’re looking to get a head start on shopping for holiday gifts or interested in getting a photo gift for back-to-school pictures, definitely check out CanvasDiscount. Even if you’re looking to showcase more than one image, they have you covered. CanvasDiscount also gives you the option to have Photos as a Photo Canvas Collage so you can print more than one image on a canvas to showcase a series of photos on one.
I have ordered many canvas prints from various retailers over the years and I was definitely impressed with receiving this one from CanvasDiscount. I am the type of person that loves giving personalized photo gifts to family and friends for any season. In years past, I have given blankets and wall decor as well as canvas prints. CanvasDiscount is the perfect place to grab your holiday gifts because the options are endless.
As I mentioned previously, I’m a huge fan of canvas prints and have been ordering and buying canvas prints for over 15 years. A good quality print is hard to come by and sometimes it may be difficult to trust ordering from an online vendor. I’m very impressed with CanvasDiscount and the quality of their print. It’s lightweight, which makes it very easy to mount on a wall and it’s a showstopping piece. Did I mention how affordable the pricing is? For a canvas the size I ordered (24″ x 36″) that can cost more than $100 from most vendors, but at $52 plus shipping, it would still bring the total to less than most places charge.
More on Shipping… most things that ship to Hawaii can have a hefty shipping cost. CanvasDiscount does offer free shipping when orders are over a certain amount and less than $10 shipping to the Continental U.S. However, because I’m in Hawaii – shipping is over $30 (no matter the product). While that’s a hefty cost, since the canvas print is still so affordable, the shipping is not as bad when coming to Hawaii.
Check out CanvasDiscount
I definitely suggest checking out CanvasDiscount and start planning for your holiday shopping early. I’m beyond impressed and loving the piece I received that we are planning to order some for Christmas gifts. As a photographer (before blogging), I have purchased and ordered from a variety of sites over the years and I can attest that the affordability of the product doesn’t mean it’s cheaply made.

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.
Hickies come in a huge array of colors and sizes for adults and children and are so easy to put on and take off. Hickies is running a Winter Holiday Sale right now – purchase Hickies 1.0 for $13.99 (reg $14.99), Hickies 2.0 for $14.99 (reg $17.99) and Hickies Kids for $9.99 (reg $11.99)
Purchase Hickies at: https://www.hickies.com/
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.
Available in 5 different shade selections (quads) and retailing for $24.00, these shadows are buttery, feel luxe and are winners this holiday for any makeup lover. You can purchase these at your local The Body Shop store or at: http://www.thebodyshop-usa.com
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 FarmHouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms retail for $15.00 and can be purchased at: http://farmhousefreshgoods.com
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.
Glossique Nail Deco Decals retail for: $15.00 and can be purchased at: https://www.glossique.com/shop
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.
Personalize your own gift at: http://www.zazzle.com
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.
If you’re looking for more ideas for your holiday shopping, be sure to check out the following links for my guides and inspiration: (this list will be updated periodically as new guides become available)
The Holidays is probably my favorite time of year and when it comes to Christmas gifts, I love shopping for family and friends. Any of these gifts would make a great selection for anyone this holiday season – even you, if you’re planning to treat yourself. What about you, are there any gifts on this list that you hope to find in your stocking this year, comment below and share!

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:
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 ($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.

So, what about you? Are any of these items a part of your children’s wish list this holiday?

We are in full Fall season and I can smell the sweet scent of Pumpkin and Pumpkin Spice everywhere. I really wanted to share with my readers a sweet pumpkin scented set that you can purchase for yourself or someone you love. The Happee Body Sweet Pumpkin Spice Collection will be a great gift or treat for anyone, so let’s chit chat about it, shall we.
The Happee Body Sweet Pumpkin Spice Collection features a cute gift box filled with all of your pumpkin essentials to get you through the season and sweater weather.
The set includes:
2 pieces of Sweet Pumpkin Spice Facial Soap
2 oz. jar of Sweet Pumpkin Spice Lip Scrub
0.5 oz tin of Sweet Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm
Retail: $18.97 http://happeebody.com
The Pumpkin Spice Facial Soap – is such a fun little soap that is perfect for the Fall and holiday season. This soap has a wonderful pumpkin scent which I love, but it’s not so strong that it’s too much. It’s enriched with Mankua honey and premium shea butter to keep your skin moisturized, while it thoroughly cleanses and nourishes the skin. To use the saop, simply lather and use to wash your face (it can also be used on the body).
This soap is sold in a pack of two for $5.97 if you decide to not get the whole set.
The Sweet Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm (retail for $4.97 separately) has a light scent/fragrance and taste. Made with premium beeswax and extra virgin coconut oil, this lip balm ensures that your lips are moisturized all day and everyday. It’s easy to use, simply apply with your fingers (I prefer a brush) and swipe onto y our lips. You can re-apply as often as you need. The lip balm is clear and doesn’t have any color to it, even if it’s colored in the tin. It applies nicely and leaves my lips feeling soft for hours.
The Sweet Pumpkin Spice Lip Scrub (retails for $8.97 separately) is perfect for the pumpkin lover and great for dry lips. You literally only need a dab of it and you can gently rub away the dry flakiness on your lips in seconds. A little gentle scrub in circular motions is all you need and rinse the product off with water. Once you are done, finish the moisturizing by topping your lips with the Sweet Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm.

Well, I wasn’t going to do all of these Gift Guides and not have one for children. My boys would be pretty disappointed in me if I had forgotten about them. lol There are so many gifts you can buy for your kids and while there are some really easy ones to find, sometimes shopping for your favorite little person can be a challenge. My gift guide is mainly focused around boys – since, let’s face it, I have boys – but I also included some fun gifts that would make great additions to any little ones list. Without further adieu, here’s my list of cool presents for kids.
The first thing on the boys lists of presents is almost always… Legos. While we certainly all enjoy legos in our household, my feet don’t quite like them – for obvious reasons. But now a days, you can find lego designs on everything from shirts and pajamas to video games and movies. It’s a tried and true brand and one that my family loves and enjoys. Lego provides my sons (even my husband and I) a way for a creative outlet without the mess of paint or scissors and while the little pieces are a bit too much for the young ones, they make great gifts for kids to help build their fine motor skills, thinking and problem solving.
My boys have well over 20000 pieces I’m sure because we try to buy at least one Lego set a holiday or birthday for each child. But, if Legos are not the right gift for your little one – Lego also offers a free subscription to the Lego magazine and Mega Blocks make a great alternative for toddlers. Each of my sons had Mega Blocks as a part of their building and growing and when they were old enough – I transitioned them to Legos.
Another favorite in our house are videos games. My children only get a few video games a year because they don’t play them often, but each year we definitely get our hands on fun family games like Just Dance 2016. It allows us to not only have some fun as a family, but get in some great cardio too. A new game I’ve had my sights on this year is Back To The Future The Game. I’m a huge Back to the Future fan as are the kids (the whole family), so it would make a fun family game for all of us. There are other games we enjoy to play and Wits and Wagers is such a fun one for the whole family, though my eldest enjoys it because it has so many great trivia questions. Besides, WE LOVE board games.
Books, Books and more books. We have a huge library in our tiny house filled with fun books for the boys and for the adults. Any type of book from Cat in the Hat and Dr. Seuss to Ramona and Beezus make great additions to any library. I-Spy books are also a fun one to read together and I love buying books from my childhood for the boys like The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, To Kill a Mockingbird or Maniac Magee which are three of my childhood favorites.
Dr. Cool Kits are some of my absolute favorites and the boys love them too. These awesome kits have digs that are a learning experience and are truly fun for the whole family. Some of our favorites are the Real Bug Dig Kit and the Ultimate Geode Science Kit. All of the kits available from Dr. Cool are very interactive, a great learning experience and would make fantastic gifts.
Another Gift idea that tends to be overlooked are crayons and coloring books – craft projects in general. These dandy little gifts make great things for travel or keeping your little people active and occupied. I carry a small box of crayons in my purse most of the time so that the boys can always color one of the many coloring books we have spread out at home or in the car or they can color in a book or planner I have in my bag. Never underestimate the power of a bunch of colored wax utensils for this reason. Coloring books are fun for teenagers too. My eldest colors in my “adult coloring books” and he enjoys them. Coloring is great for hand and eye coordination but also makes for a wonderful gift for anyone of all ages.
Buying gifts for children can be a challenge sometimes – especially if you don’t know much about a child and you’re shopping without any idea as to what they would like. I find that pulling for staple gifts such as some of these I have listed, I have a pretty sure bet that they will enjoy their present. Everything I buy for children tends to have some form of learning in it – even if they have no idea that it does and it makes gift giving fun knowing I’m buying something that the child or children will benefit from. If you’re shopping for a girl – please don’t rule out some of these gifts as many of these can be universal for all children and when it comes to Legos, well – the brand makes sets that are geared towards girls as well.
Happy Shopping for those little ones in your life, I hope you have lots of fun and this list helped to bring you a little peace of mind.
