Here are some great gift suggestions:

Diono Radian®RXT car seat is designed with your child’s security and safety as top priorities. Premium materials and thoughtful safety features like a steel alloy frame, aluminum reinforced side walls, energy absorbing EPS foam, and a five-point harness put your mind at ease as your little one stays safe and sound. The reinforced adjustable head support provides additional side impact protection. (; SRP: $359.99)

Diono Stow ‘n Go keeps everything organized and easy to find when you need it. Our seatback organizer does it all with seven full sized pockets and two drink holders in a washable, waterproof fabric. The top fastens around any headrest while the bottom fastens around the seat for a secure fit. Folds for easy storage in seat back pocket when not in use. (; SRP: $10.99)

I really like this one! A real must-have for new parents!

Diono Travel Pal is designed to keep books and toys neat and organized. It has a deep cargo bin for toys and lots of pockets for smaller things, too. It also has insulated drink holders and the entire cargo area is waterproof – just in case. Travel Pal fits between two child car seats and it’s big enough to hold everything for both children. (; SRP: $15.99)

The Diono® Buggy Tech Tote is the new media solution that keeps mom connected and organized while baby and kids stay entertained. Simply and easily slide your smartphone into the protective touchscreen-compatible sleeve to quickly answer text or calls while pushing a stroller though the park. Slide your tablet into the back sleeve and start a video to keep your baby entertained while riding rear-facing. For older kids, simply zip off the removable tablet sleeve so your child can play in the stroller while mom enjoys a moment of peace. Stay organized with the customizable and removable dividers; there is even an insulating pouch for a water bottle. Quickly remove from stroller to use as a tote to take with you. The design fits most smartphones and tablets, and any stroller configuration from two-handle to a handle bar stroller. (; SRP: $29.99)

Self Disclosure: This gift suggestion is part of a sponsored campaign with MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The next one is a great one for Mom, Dad, Grandma…I can go on! Who doesn’t love has such a great variety of framed art. My son and I love dogs especially beagles so we found this really awesome print! I love the quality and the beautiful colors in the print! It truly is a piece of art! What I also really like about this website is there is such a wide variety of choices. You really can find something for everyone on your list! Even the most difficult to shop for! There were so many great choices for dog prints that it took me awhile to choose which one. There’s still time to order and receive before Christmas but you have to hurry! They are also having a holiday sale. Holiday Sale Ends in 1 Day, 16 Hours & 10 Minutes! There really is the prefect print for everyone on your shopping list! They also have a 100% satisfaction return policy but I am sure you will be pleased! I love the one we received!


The next gift suggestion is great for young children learning about feelings. A great Child Development toy idea!

unnamed (2)   unnamed (4)  unnamed (3)

The Moodsters, a new line of toys and books designed to teach young children the fundamentals of feelings.


The Moodsters, five lovable little detectives (Coz, Lolly, Snorf, Razzy and Quigly), come to the rescue whenever their friends, Zach and Zoey, have a feelings emergency. The stories and toys teach simple strategies to build social and emotional intelligence skills in young children. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is defined as the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions as well as the emotions of others. Decades of scientific research has shown that children with EQ skills are better able to manage their thoughts, feelings and behavior.

My favorite?

Feelings Flashlight™ and Storybook– an electronic flashlight that features The Moodsters character images with voice affirmations and fun play activities so kids can explore their feelings, helping them to process and understand their emotions. “The Scary Sleepover”storybook to complement the Feelings Flashlight with a story to take the “scary” out of bedtime. The night of the treehouse sleepover is finally here, but the backyard is full of spooky noises and dark shadows.  The Moodsters help their friend, Zach, face his fears – and save the sleepover!


** Winner of NAPPA 2015 Bronze Seal **


Now available at Target stores nationwide and on, each toy + story book set retails at $19.99!

A Hostess Gift or Present for a Co-Worker
unnamed (6)

It can be hard to find a present or a hostess gift for distant relatives, acquaintances or co-workers. The folks at Earth’s Care like to keep a few gift bags on-hand for those times when a little extra “thank-you” is in order.

When that happens, the Earth’s Care Dry & Cracked Skin Balm (MSRP $10.99) is always a must-have as it quickly soothes damaged skin and makes it feel visibly softer and smoother.

The team also loves to throw in a bottle of its Sweet Almond Oil, (MSRP $9.99) which is not only a fantastic natural moisturizer, but is a great makeup remover as well!

Both items contain no parabens, pthalates, artificial colors or fragrances.

This next one also makes a great stocking stuffer! My husband took mine so this one is also great for Dads!

Looking for a cute way to give a Gift Card? Fluffeez is the answer!


The purpose of Fluffeez is to wrap your gift cards in a bit of extra love. A Fluffeez plush is the perfect solution for those who love the ease of giving gift cards but recognize the importance of a tangible gift rather than a greeting card that gets thrown away after reading. A Fluffeez and gift card show that you took time to pick out a special plush just for your loved one and still provide the means to pick out their own gift. I love how cute and fun these are!
