Holiday Gift Suggestions!

Christmas is approaching and will soon be here!

Here are some more of our top Holiday gift suggestions!

This first one is great for couples!

Gnoments: bringing the magic back into relationships!

Gnoments– a unique relationship-building tool to help you share and create special moments with the one you love.  The Gnoments kit includes a boy and girl gnome, each with a special pouch for including notes, mementos, and gifts, along with an embedded NFC chip for high tech messages, and a 32 page hard-covered, illustrated story book with ideas to get you started so you can begin making special moments today.

I received a sample and love what a creative and unique idea this is!!

For a more high-tech option, use the embedded NFC tag (Near field communications) to program a variety of messages and adventures.Currently available for most Android users, and surely soon to be enabled for iPhones everywhere, smart phones can easily program the NFC tag inside each gnome to offer another exciting way of being romantic, thoughtful, and fun. Record a YouTube video, sound clip, write a text, or set up a scavenger hunt, and all your husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, or anyone else for that matter simply has to do is scan the gnome, and they will see the message on their phone! If you are away from your gnome, but still want to send a special message, Gnoments’ mobile-friendly website includes a special messaging system called Gnomifications, where one can create a Gnomitar (a gnome avatar) and send an email or text with the same links one can share through the embedded NFC tags.

The Lay It or Break It Action Game is a lot of fun! 

You actually dress up and act like a chicken to play this game and it is fun to watch the kids play. The eggs do break open easily but I think part of the fun is being careful with the eggs so they don’t break open too easily! The player with the most unbroken eggs wins! Adventurous parents may want to try this one too! Guaranteed fun and laughter!
