Here is a great game of physics for your children ages eight and up (although even children a little younger can probably get in on the action as well).

I can not begin to count the number of hours between my boys that they have spent on the Xbox. More than the games themselves, my boy’s favorite thing about their Xbox is that they have a way to get a group of their buddies from church or school together in a “group chat”… aka when they are playing a game. A new gamers headset was on my son’s Christmas list. The PuroSound PuroGamer is my top pick because it also protects my boy’s hearing by not allowing the sound to go above 85 dB but still allows them to hear their friends clearly. Also, I love that the microphone is built to pick up just the one wearing its voice. I hate feeling like all their friends can hear every conversation in our home. The PuroSound PuroGamer gives us privacy without having to make our kids get off the Xbox if my husband or I need to have a private conversation with someone else in the home.

I have searched high and low for comfortable, quality, stylish boots. It seems as though anytime I find a pair I like, they are lacking either the comfort, quality or they are just flat out not stylish. Arcopedico Boots have hit a home run. I can honestly say, these are the most comfortable boots I have ever put on my feet. Aside from comfort, the quality is impeccable. Oh, and you can see for yourself how stylish they are!
On the inside of these boots, you will find a faux fur liner made of a mix of polyester and wool to keep your feet warm on winter days. I was concerned my feet would get sweaty on the “not so winter days” but I was surprisingly wrong. With twin-arch support with a removable insole. Now for (maybe) the best part about the W9 boots by Arcopedico. They are MACHINE WASHABLE! How awesome is that?! I am seriously considering buying the black pair so I can wear these boots with every outfit!

Often, I see people in Walmart buying multiple cases of water all at one time. They load it in their cart, unload it at the register, reload it in their cart, all to unload into their vehicle and then into their home. It can get expensive to drink clean water but also a nuisance. Then, after all that work, you still manage to walk out of the house grabbing only one bottle and having to stop to buy a bottle of water at the gas station. Now, you can buy the Epic Nalgene OG Bottle and have clean, purified water at any time regardless of where you go (as long as you have some form of water source). Epic Water Filters offers a variety of filtration systems. My favorite has to be the Epic Nalgene OG for our busy lifestyles. I get clean, great-tasting water anywhere I go!

Do you buy an ornament every year to commemorate the year? Precious Moments has many adorable ornaments but my favorite has to be the I Llove You Lots llama ornament. My mom, every year, buys each of the grandkids a special ornament. She tries to buy an ornament that coincides with something new they learned to do that year or a “favorite” from the year. This year, my son will be getting the “I Llove You Lots” ornament. All year, my son has been crazy over llamas after a visit to a drive-thru zoo.

When he is older, and his “favorites” may have changed, he will have this ornament to remind him of the year of loving llamas along with his special trip to the drive-thru zoo!

Every fisherman has probably spent some time at some point watching the pros online or tv. One of the things I love about those shows is getting to see what happens under the water during the battle between fish and angler!

Exploring a big city can be a thrilling adventure. Between beautiful structures, history to learn, and stunning views (especially at night), my “to do list” when visiting has always been bigger than my bank account. I have used CityPASS in Chicago before which allows visits to some of the best attractions in the Windy City. My husband and I took a quick trip to New York City earlier this year and have plans to return. We didn’t have time to enjoy the city as much as we would like. I already have our tickets for all the places we are dying to visit together! Great thing is, with CityPASS, the tickets are 44% less than if you bought them straight up. Now, THAT is more in line with my bank account! We love using CityPASS!!
The Empire State Building has been on my bucket list for years now. My husband, he has been anxious to go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. We had plans to go while we were there in February but had a family emergency that cut our trip short (the day we were to go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum)! Among the other places, we will be visiting with city pass include the American Museum of Natural History (for my history-buff of a husband), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (which will be more up my alley), and then we both are stoked about the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. We went to eat in the Rockefeller Center in February. I can only imagine the view from the observation deck! Seeing the Statue of Liberty from the boat will be much different than getting to experience walking right next to it!
My kids will be jealous. Maybe we will need to just buy some additional tickets and change it to a family trip! Thank you, CityPASS for making traveling easier and more affordable! Give your child the gift of exploring the world around them!
Like most families today, we are always on the go. Whether kids sports games, trips to the grandparents (5 hours a way), camping or out recent family vacation on a cruise (yes I wish I was still there) we are just busy. We love taking photos and videos with our phones and our kids always have their devices handy to play a game, watch a movie, or chat with friends.
The Zendure A8QC External Battery has been a game-changer for our family! When we start packing one of the first things we make sure we have is this battery! This battery can charge not one but 4 devices at one time! With a family of 5, it takes away the arguments of who gets to charge next!
What I love most is how much power and how quick this battery is. It can charge a smartphone from 0 to 80% in 35 minutes. It can also charge them multiple times. For example, on a full charge, the Zendure A8QC External Battery can charge an iPhone 8 10.5 times!
Living where we do, we can get ice in the winter and occasionally hurricanes in the summer. In addition to being a must-have when we travel, this battery is part of our emergency plan for those times we lose power. We have been a couple of days without power and thanks to the Zendure A8QC External Battery have been able to stay connected with our phones to let our family know we were ok.
So whether you are in the go or preparing for those times when electricity is just out of reach, the Zendure A8QC External Battery is the perfect solution to keep your family charged and ready for all your adventures!

This summer our family was privileged to go to a family camp with our church family. People of all ages from toddlers to senior citizens were there.

I have made it a point that each of my children knows how to prepare at least one meal. I may not be shooting for the stars there, but two of them are teenage boys who would much rather consume than cook. How I wish I had Kidstir when they were smaller! Learning to prepare food that both tastes good and has nutritional value is a life lesson so many kids are lacking now. Make learning to cook simple and fun with Kidstir.

However, I don’t mind products that keep folks guessing my age! Block Islands sunscreen and revitalizing night cream are not only protecting my skin from the harsh harmful rays, but it’s also putting some of the nutrients back that years of abuse have depleted. I don’t mind getting older, honestly, I don’t, but if I find a product that helps me do that gracefully – count me in! Try Block Island – your face will thank you!

What could possibly be better than a dart gun? A dart gun that can blast up to one hundred feet away!

For the yoga enthusiasts, Aurorae has got you covered. What is a yoga mat without a carrying bag? Aurorae doesn’t disappoint with their high quality yoga mats and mat cleaner so why would they stop with that?! Their Yoga bags are just as high quality! They are made to fit a yoga mat perfectly without the hassle of the mat unrolling during transport. I’ve also found yoga mats to be a great “on the go” nap mat for my daughter. Having a bag keeps the mat easy to carry and it keeps it clean!
What candy can say “Christmas” more than anything? Red and white peppermint sticks! There is something cozy about the Cracker Barrel Country Store. The familiar smell, the country decor, and the nostalgic candies. Our family loves eating at Cracker Barrel and almost always leave with some sort of candy or toy from the country store.

It comes in a variety of colors, so get yourself one and find a partner to work out with and stuff their stocking with a cup and a promise to help each other be the best you can be.
My kids (even my teen) all love Moosh Moosh products. They are unlike any stuffed animal I have ever felt before. Honest! I knew when they said that had Slipperz, we HAD to try them. My son loves anything that lives in the water… even sharks. His Moosh Moosh Slipperz feel like you are walking on a pile of Moosh-Moosh stuffed animals. Oh, the softness! They even sell adult sizes so while you are ordering for your kiddo, go ahead and thrown in a pair for yourself!
Stuff, Stuff everywhere is how I have felt lately. Fostering a newborn and having a daughter in 1st grade, a son in 7th, and another son as a junior in high school, makes our life have a lot of “stuff”. Our kids are all at different phases in life which requires a lot of organization. ZizzyBee Bags helps us eliminate some of the chaos in life! Baby’s must-have items like his nail clippers, nasal aspirator, an extra pacifier (why do they always disappear?), and a small bottle of lotion all get thrown in one ZizzyBee Bag and then into the diaper bag. We know exactly where it is at all times. The bags are washable which makes it really convenient to use when my boys use them to haul their pens and pencils for school.
Wow! A 5×5 Rubik’s cube! I thought the 4×4 cube was difficult. For those who have a love for everything Rubik’s, this 5×5 is a must for the collection! The 5×5 would make a great gift for even adults. Rubik’s cubes are excellent to bring along in the car for some non-electronic fun or even work on solving while laying in bed.
Gotta jerky lover? I’ve got one. Very seldom do we set out for a long drive that he doesn’t have at least one bag in his stash! This box from Peoples Choice is going to keep him happy for a while. Maybe he’ll share a few pieces with his mom while he’s at it. This box will make a great gift for your jerky lover!
Do you have or have you ever had silk pillowcases? Well, let me just say, I never have until now and the difference is incredible! 100% silk is great for your hair and looks great on the bed since they are wrinkle-free!
There is just something about climbing between silky sheets on what I call a “new sheet night”. You know the day, the one that you get to wash your sheets AND shower before getting between them. Ahhh!! doesn’t happen often for this mama but when it does… ahhhh. With these sheets from California Design Den, every night can be a “new sheet night”. Super soft and comfy sheets just help you rest better! Treat yourself to a good night’s rest this busy Christmas season and get your loved ones a set while you’re at it!

There is a lot of phone chargers out there to choose from. This 2-in-1 from Packlite needs to be on your list this year! I love the fact that it does the same as a phone charger AND flashlight! What a perfect solution to the power outages that come often in the Carolinas with winter weather! This is a very affordable well thought out gift that needs to be under your tree this year!
My kids are all about anything Rubik’s. When I was younger, I could never seem to figure out how to solve just the ordinary Rubik’s cube. My boys, the harder the better. They figure out how to solve them but love the challenge of a new type of cube. I can’t wait to give the Winning Moves Rubik’s Void to them. It will bring a whole new type of challenge to their Rubik’s addiction. With a hole in the middle, players have a more unique kind of challenge!
KOZO is Japanese for “structure”. It has been a popular game in Asia that is now becoming popular in the US. Take turns (with 2-4 players) placing wooden pieces on the board game. Watch out, one wrong move and your tower will come crashing down resulting in a loss of points for that round. If you like games that can be played in a short period of time, this is a great one!
While my husband has several watches in his collection, without a doubt his favorite is the Jord Meridian Wood Watch. It’s a real eye-catcher!

It features a domed sapphire crystal glass, an exposed backplate, and of course, natural hand treated zebrawood and dark sandalwood for a luxurious and timeless look! One of my favorite features is that this watch doesn’t use a battery and has a power reserve of 40 hours!
Included with the Meridian series from Jord is a collector’s edition humidor cedar box, along with a cleaning cloth and a six-month supply of Jord Preserve, to keep your watch looking fresh and brand new!
Anyone else gets tired of dry, calluses on their feet? Baby Foot is here to help. Most products gear towards women, but Baby Foot knows that men need some help with their feet, too! They have a one-hour treatment made just for men. You know how men can be… if it doesn’t look or sound manly, pampering isn’t usually their thing. They will dig the Baby Foot for Men. While you are at it, grab one for all the teens and adults in your family. It’s a good, inexpensive way to pamper your loved one (and not have to deal with their dry, cracked feet). Baby Foot does all the work. Slide on the slipper for the time recommended and voila… softer feet will appear!
Do you get tired of worrying if the chemicals in your cleansers, moisturizers, toners, etc are harming your skin more than helping? Just because it is on the shelf does not mean it is truly good for your skin or that it even works! NO BS offers skincare without all the additives… and it works! Go ahead and splurge with the whole box. You will want all of their products anyways!
Have you ever had your computer completely croak? Been there, done that. I lost every single picture that was on that computer including all of our photos from a trip to Disney!! Never. Again. Now, I am sure to always back everything up on an external hard drive. If they are really important pictures or documents, I add them to two external hard drives, just in case. The Seagate One Touch SSD is an absolutely perfect size to take with you when you travel. Boy, I wish I had it with me several years ago while meeting Mickey! I would have never lost all those precious photos. The Seagate One Touch is super easy to use and so compact while still holding a whole terabyte of data! That’s a lot of space!!
My kids love history. They do love to read but sometimes just enjoy a good picture book. The Show Me History Books Series is a comic book style way of learning about people in history.

Bring your child back in time as they discover new interesting facts about four different men and women in history. The series currently includes books on Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Martin Luther King Jr., and Alexander Hamilton.
With so many dishonest people in America, protecting yourself is vital. During an accident, one may forget what actually happened amidst the chaos or they may misconstrue the truth to protect themselves from getting a ticket. Having a Nexar Beam Dash Cam will give the true reality of what happened. Protect yourself and even your family by installing a dashcam in your vehicle. The Nexar Beam Dash Cam is also a great gift to a new driver to give mom and dad a sense of peace when seeing how their driving is going now that they are out from under their authority.

I can not say enough about this product! Illustory saved Thanksgiving for us! We had to stay home from visiting family out of state due to illness. My daughter needed a little pick me up. I pulled out the Illustory – Create Your Own Book box and she went to town (at the age of six) writing her very own autobiography!

Do you love to journal? Hate ugly blue or black lines on a page but can’t write straight without the lines? Ghost Paper is what you need. Aside from being able to buy journals at such a great price, these bound journals and even stationery packs are ink line free. Yep, they still come with lines on the page but they are virtually invisible once you write in the journal. How is that? The lines are just slightly imprinted enough to write but not enough to stand out and distract from what you wrote! I’m in love!

Teddy the Dog has some hilarious products. Two of my favs are the ones printed on these shirts (which are also available on their coffee mugs). Witty comments mixed with illustrations of dogs doing human things make these T-shirts great! The t-shirt material is very durable compared to so many T-shirts similar.
