Educational Gift Ideas for Kids



My favorite types of gifts to give children are fun and educational gifts because a love of learning is a gift that keeps on giving. With the majority of children behind in school due to the pandemic, it is imperative that we give them gifts they can enjoy while getting them caught up. This list is aimed at elementary and preschool aged children, but please feel free to list any educational gifts ideas that you have for older children in the comments below.

The Best Gifts for Burned Out Moms



Everyday life can lead anyone to feel burned out at times, but being a mom means extra work to keep your family happy, healthy, and safe. It’s an incredible experience being a parent, but it’s also one of the most challenging things a person can do. This is why it’s important to look out for moms (and dads), whether they’re your parents or a friend or relative with kids. They might seem like they are on top of everything, but they will need a break once in a while, too. To show the moms some love in your life, here are some great gift ideas for when they need to slow down and relax. 

Gift Ideas the Whole Family Can Enjoy

Besides experience gifts, which I have been very adamant about this year, I am loving family gifts because I believe if it is something that we can enjoy all together then my children are going to remember that above all else. And that is my goal in all of this, creating more lasting memories with my family. These gifts do just that - create memories. I hope you enjoy this list and feel free to let me know in the comments some of your family favorite gift ideas!

Something For Everyone with 3DLIGHTFX

My son is adjusting to his new bedroom and I have decided to get him some kind of light to go in his room because it is very dark right now. He also has almost zero d├ęcor in his room. It's because we really didn't have a decorated nursery for him like we did for our daughter. I am terrible and never got around to it. BUT we have decided to a chic Star Wars theme for his new room.

3DLIGHTFX Review

I have known about 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights for a while now and since we have just now decided on a theme for his room, what better time to get him one of these! 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights are the perfect gift this holiday season. They have a full range of comic book, super hero, Disney Princess, sports and car lights that look as though they are popping right out of the wall. We chose the Darth Vader light because our son loves him.

Unique Gifts from Hammacher Schlemmer

Hammacher Schlemmer has unique gifts for everyone on your shopping list. I was so excited when I received the opportunity to include them in my Holiday Gift Guide. I was asked to pick an item from their HUGE selection for products. There were so many things I liked. Last year I chose The Award Winning Dump Truck, but this year I decided to get something for the hubby and I. So I picked the Ultra Slim Wine Refrigerator.

Gift Idea for the Wine Enthusiast

The Ultra Slim Wine Refrigerator is a dual-temperature wine refrigerator that secures 18 bottles yet measures less than 10"-wide. Ideal for narrow spaces—such as the end of an apartment’s buffet or island—while providing the convenience of a fully stocked kitchen cellar, it stores Bordeaux-sized bottles with seven chrome shelves that pull out easily for readjustment when storing larger bottles from other appellations. A built-in shelf supports upright and preserved wines.

I love giving unique and personalized gifts. I know I have mentioned that already, but there is just something so wonderful when you give something that represents your loved one in a unique way.

Give the Gift of Fresh Flowers with BloomsyBox

I love fresh flowers. I love how they can give your space a little something extra. I have been buying flowers pretty regularly since we moved into our new house from our local grocery store, but they haven't lasted at all. I would rather spend a little more to get some flowers that last longer, so in the long run I'm spending less.
