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.

Go ahead and splurge with the whole box. You will want all of their products anyways!
Useful Christmas decorations are top on my list. I, like many, don’t have a ton of room for Christmas decorations aside from the basic tree and stockings. This Snowman Cookie Jar is absolutely adorable but also very useful. Christmas is the season that more cookies are made than the rest of the year combined. We are replacing our everyday cookie jar with the Merry Moments Snowman Cookie Jar. It uses the same amount of space but adds a Christmas touch to the kitchen. The lid of the jar is sealed so it is far more than just decor! Now, I better get to work making a fresh batch of cookies to add to this Snowman Cookie Jar!
Without a doubt, music makes life better. The right song can even make the biggest chores a little more fun! When I am cleaning or doing other chores around the house J love having my favorite tunes playing. The problem is that when I am cleaning if I use our surround sound I have to blast it so that I can hear it all over the house and sometimes that doesn’t work for everyone else. If I use headphones, heading the calls for mom that will inevitably come will go unheard! That’s what makes the JBL Soundgear a perfect solution. The around the neck obstruction provides a high quality and crystal clear personal sound experience! Whether listening to music, your favorite podcast or playing the latest VR game, the JBL Soundgear is sure to take it to a whole new level! Get a phone call? No worries! With Bluetooth capabilities and its dual mic conferencing system, you will think the person calling is in the room with you! Take your personal sound to the next level with JBL Soundgear!
The taste of Christmas!! eCreamery’s Premium Holiday Collection is everything you could dream of. Christmas flavored ice cream shipped directly to your front door! It is an ice cream lovers dream.

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.

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!

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.

It took me many years, to my sweet hubby’s dismay, to figure out why my food just didn’t taste like my mom’s. The problem? I didn’t season my food. It’s true.

What is your favorite memory? Maybe your very first date, the night you got married, or maybe the day a child was born? For me, one date that stands out was the night my husband proposed to me. I wish I could have bottled up every emotion I felt that night. With Moon Phase, I can have a very unique way of reminiscing about that evening. The night I said, “YES” to the rest of a lifetime with this man I have been married to for going on 19 years.

One little secret about my family. We love Ramen. It’s cheap, super easy to make, and very tasty. Maybe not very healthy but the rest compensated for that part. These ramen bowls from Ozeri are so cute! I love the contrast of black and red. My kids think they are hot stuff using chopsticks!

How many of you try lugging 20 plastic bags full of groceries on your arms so that you don’t have to make a second trip to the car? How many of you shop at places like Aldi that don’t offer to bag? Trolley Bags are what you need in your life. Reusable bags are great but you wind up unbagging the grocery bags into the reusable bags just to carry in the house. That is really not worth the frustration. Trolley Bags are velcroed together and have bars that rest on the cart to keep them easy to put your groceries in.
All you have to do is place the Trolley bags in your cart (takes 3 seconds) and do your shopping. Unload your groceries onto the belt and ask the cashier to place them right back in your cart (aka in your bags). Push your buggy to your vehicle and pull the four bags out of the cart and put directly into your vehicle. When you get home, carry the durable, oversized bags into the house and put your groceries away. Trolley Bags are honestly the way to go! Give them a try and you will find yourself never using plastic bags again!

I use my Espresso Maker quite often. The Ozeri Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall Espresso Cups make a great addition to the little collection I use for my morning espresso.

Best part… they are both microwave and freezer free. So, if you want to chill the espresso to make an iced latte or if you want to warm it back up in the microwave, you can do it all in the same cup!

I have recently started eating a diet very similar to Keto, not exactly but extremely close. One thing we all miss when we start this journey is… flour-based foods.

There are healthy options! I can honestly say, I would be thrilled if I found this wrapped under my tree!
Are you part of the Instant Pot cult? 😉 That’s what my sister in law calls it. I have found that once you start using the Instant Pot, there’s no turning back. So what could be better than an Instant Pot Cookbook? Well, a KETO Instant Pot Cookbook, of course! The Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake may or may not be the first recipe that I try out of this book. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Headphones can be the most aggravating yet beneficial thing during a workout.

MMMM… Yum! Chocolate… Yes, please! Chocolate Pizza is not truly a pizza with chocolate. I have had several people ask me what it is (after I was bragging on how good it was) so let me explain it to you. The chocolate pizza is basically a sheet of chocolate in the size and shape of a pizza with “toppings” on top. The toppings are sprinkles and chunks of candy that are embedded into the chocolate for decoration (and an extra tasty finish to the “chocolate pizza”. It is perfect for any chocolate lover!

Whether needing to weight your food for recipe purposes or whether you are trying to stick closely to a specific diet, a kitchen scale, you want a good, accurate but inexpensive kitchen scale.

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.

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!

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 City Pass 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 City Pass, 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 City Pass!!
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! Thank you, City Pass for making traveling easier and more affordable!
Who doesn’t love a day on the lake? Fresh air, lots of sunshine and refreshing water makes for a great time of memories and relaxation.

My husband is big on hot chocolate chip cookies but he has to have a cup of milk with them every time! This “Crazy for Cookies Mug” from Big Mouth Inc. is going to make a great gift for him.

It would make a great addition to a gift basket with a box or two of cookies!
Anyone else have cold wood flooring in the wintertime? Fuzzy Babba Slippers aren’t good for keeping your feet warm but they are so… fuzzy! I even have an extra pair that I use just to sleep in.

Christmas may have to come early at our house! This is a great gift to slide under the tree and open early.

Intentional. It’s a word that I’ve been mulling over for weeks now. Intentional living allows me to “trim the fat” out of my life. Make room in my life for what is really important. Life is too short to live it floundering. It’s not a dress rehearsal. We get one shot at living and I want to make every single moment I have count. Seeking Slow is helping me prioritize what is important and weed out the rest. Intentional living is the best life.
The more clutter I have around me, the more clutter I have in my mind. I can still hear my mom saying it. “A place for everything and everything in its place!” I didn’t get it then, but how I get in now!

Simply Spaced will be a great addition to any family Christmas tree! Learn to live simply together!

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! I have often thought when bass fishing how cool it would be to be able to see that same kind of action with the fish I am catching. Using the GoFish Camera that dream is now a reality!

The more you see the more you catch and the GoFish Camera is the perfect way to find that trophy fish!

I love grilling and socializing on a big deck out under the sun or stars. The ONLY thing I despise about decks is the fact that they tend to gather leaves and pine straw in between the boards. Decktool is a really neat product to help you easily clean your deck. With the long handle and thin blade, you can clean with ease.
Do you ever stand in awe when you think about all the details known about our universe and even the thought of what all we don’t know about it? The universe is most definitely something to stand in awe over. Why not add some fun, adult coloring while thinking about all the wonders of the universe. It is known that coloring is a stress reducer. The relaxation of the coloring mixed with having a moment to just focus on the wonders of the world makes for a great de-stressor at the end of your day!
Music is such a huge part of my life! Whether running errands, working out, doing chores around the house or just hanging out, most of the time I have music playing.
The Jabra Move Style Edition has taken my personal music to a whole new level! It has an ultra-light headband and features Jabra’s Digital Signal Processing making listening to music enjoyable for hours! Speaking of hours, the battery life is good for up to 14 hours off a single charge and 12 days of standby!
The Jabra Move Style Edition has the ability to be connected through a wired jack or wirelessly with a range of 32 feet! With three great colors to choose from this headset truly looks as good as it sounds!
Like most families today, we are always on the go. Whether kids sports games, trips to the grandparents (5 hours away), 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 on 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!
Do you want to keep up with your steps but can’t wear the more sports-themed fitness trackers to work? BellaBeat has heard your cries. Since I have started working a public job again, I’m dressing business casual and didn’t want to wear my regular fitness tracker due to it being a little less dressy. This Leaf Urban is solving this issue beautifully for me! It looks super stylish and can connect to my phone to give up real-time updates on my fitness schedule for the day. Such a versatile piece! Bellabeat also has a club for women who are interested in achieving overall well-being. You can check it out HERE.
Have an outdoorsman or woman on your list? Nomadic has the perfect gift! It is a subscription service for those who love the outdoors. The very first box (The Welcome Box) comes with a Lawson Parachute hammock and suspension system. What more could an outdoors person love than to set up a hammock between two trees and lounge in the great outdoors?! Inside the box are also some waterproof fire starter and a gear repair kit. Plus, lounging in the hammock got even better because with the included Skratch Labs Hydration Mix, you won’t have to worry about dehydration. Boxes are all valued at more than $50 which is much cheaper than the subscription itself!
I love grilling out! The smell of a nice marinated steak rolling off the grill is just one of life’s simple pleasures. The part I don’t like is cleaning the grill afterward. It can be a dirty greasy job! Plus using the wire brushes we have been accustomed to could put our family or friends in danger should a bristle fall out and we miss it. The Sage Owl Grill Scraper is the perfect solution. It comes in either brass or stainless steel and also two different sizes so that any grill can be easily cleaned by hand without the mess! Need a little extra leverage? No worries just attach the optional handle and you are good to go! The Sage Owl Grill Scraper makes it so easy to keep your grill clean and ready for the next cookout!

Have I mentioned that I love companies that have their eyes on a bigger picture? I can’t say how it warms my heart for companies to give to those who are less fortunate. Roma’s Chelsea Red waterproof boots will not only keep your loved one’s feet warm and dry, but there will also be someone else, possibly on the opposite side of this rock we live on, enjoying toasty feet as well. All because you purchase a pair of these super cute boots! We may be wearing these boots as a fashion statement but to others, it’s keeping them well, warm, and providing a means to traverse rough weather conditions. There are so many styles and colors, you’ll have a hard time picking just one!
The best products are typically ones designed by those who would need the products the most. Littlebeam Nursing Pillow was created by a lactation consultant. She would most definitely know what the best shape and size nursing pillows would be beneficial to moms who are nursing their sweet baby. The pillow is compact and can be used in any position to create the most comfortable position for both mom and baby. Why not add the ease of a machine washable cover to make life even easier for mom!

It keeps my noggin warm and looks stylish at the same time. Help Beyond Beanie help others!
Block Island Natural Sunscreen & Revitalizing Night Cream
I’m getting to the age that my skin isn’t looking quite as youthful as it once did. I’m not complaining, these wrinkles and stretch marks help tell my story. 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!
Looking for the good in everything… even the little things can be easy to forget. For a dog, they find love in even what we consider to be “little things”.

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!

I love the fact that I can give him his favorite snack and not add the harsh chemicals that come from the bagged corn. This will make SUPER stocking stuffers for everyone on your list.
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.

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!
I had always heard but never realized until I was pregnant myself. When a family is expecting a baby, the entire family is expecting! Pregnancy is no doubt harder on those of us baring the child but as our body, hormones, emotions, energy and everything else changes, it affects our loved ones as well. Bump Boxes knows this and has thought of everyone! Pregnancy boxes for mom, dad boxes, and bitsy boxes for the new arrival! Packed with essentials for each family member, Bump Boxes celebrates your growing family with you! What a great gift to give the expecting family!
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 “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!
I’m in love with this Duvet Cover from California Design. It’s calming white color and the ultra-soft fabric is the perfect addition to my new sheets from California Design! Snuggling up under a comfy warm duvet is the perfect way to spend evenings during this busy (and cold) holiday season.
It’s easy in the hustle and bustle that this time of year brings for us to get so busy we forget the important things. We are so focused on getting things that we neglect “the thing”. Our loved ones and friendships suffer as we try to find the perfect gifts for them. Ironic. And Tims sheds some light on how to avoid the holiday blues by realizing we are never truly alone. What a great gift for the ones we love!
A classic story told in an updated setting – can’t get any better than that. Watch as our beloved Bill Murray is reminded of the true meaning of Christmas by ghosts.

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!

Taking a baby to the store is not just a hassle but it is also not always the smartest thing to do when it is really cold, a lot of sicknesses are going around, and when it is raining. Between diapers, wipes, and formula, I feel like I’m constantly making a Walmart run. Cutie Pea allows me to stay at home and have those diapers and wipes delivered right to my door. It’s a great gift for an expecting mom or even a gift for a baby who already received everything they need from the 700 baby showers they had for them!
Aside from Cutie Pea being convenient, the diapers and wipes are better for your baby and the environment! Made from bamboo, Cutie Pea products are approved by dermatologists for being hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and fragrance-free. I know I would be more than happy for someone to gift our little one with diapers and wipes that are good for him and our environment (and convenient for me).
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!
Give the gift of rest this Christmas! This set from Scentuals will fill your senses with calm and allow you to drift off into a peaceful sleep.

Go ahead and get several – you’re going to want one as soon as you get the first sniff! The Sleep Well Gift Set is available at Sobeys, Pharmasave, Safeway, Thrifty Foods, independent pharmacies and Scentuals.com
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!
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.
What a great way to reminisce with a friend or family member. Give them a gift that would be meaningful AND useful. A lot of times, those two words don’t collide. They do with Well Told Designs.

Pick a birthplace, location of a first date or any other meaningful locations and give as a meaningful gift.

It is true that dogs really are man’s best friends but sometimes training them at first can sometimes be a daunting task.

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. He got up close and personal with a llama and has decided they are his favorite animal. 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!

Life can get pretty crazy with rushing from one place to the next, making sure children are fed and bathed, and being involved in as many activities as you can be for your children.

Essential Oils… Oh, how I love thee! I can not say enough about the healing powers of the things we find naturally around us. I have diffusers in my office, my kitchen, my dining room, bedroom, bathroom… pretty much every room. I have rollers for immediate relief. That is one of the things I love most about essential oils, they are versatile and totally mobile. I never have to leave home without my blend for anxiety or allergies. If you’ve never tried essential oils, what are you waiting on? You can thank me later!
There are few things as sweet as the bond between a baby and their parent. It melted my heart every time my babies would swing their little noggin around to hear my voice.

I know I’m not the only mama to go to charge my phone to find my charger missing… NO MORE! Those little humans I’ve raised lose their charger and what do they do? They “borrow” mom’s charger. Not anymore they don’t. USBThere has had my cries (maybe screams but hey…) and delivered me a lock for my charger! They only thing that would make this lock any better would be a camera on it so I can see there look of confusion when they can’t “borrow” mom’s charger anymore! Thank you, USBThere!

No more tangled heaps of drop cords or Christmas lights in this house! Packbands are a game changer! I love getting gifts that are useful and I’m married to Mr. Organization, so I do believe we have found ourselves a winner!

But something magical happens in those few weeks and I forget the struggle. Not this year! Packbands are going to save my sanity!

If a girl’s best friend is a diamond, I believe YETI has stolen the hearts of our guys. With the quality we’ve all come to expect from Yeti, this bag is so versatile and a must for my on the go middle child. He’s my child that could find dirt or mud anywhere at any time. Sending a clean set of clothes when he goes off has become a way of life. He’s 14… I truly thought we had outgrown this stage 10 years ago. I stand corrected. This YETI Camino Carryall will keep his clean clothes clean until he needs them and he can store his muddy clothes INside the bag and not on the tan seats in my car. THANK YOU, YETI!

No more with these storage containers. Packing leftovers is a breeze and my mornings are now bearable.

I can still hear the clang of cast iron pots and pans in my grandma’s kitchen on Saturday morning.

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.
