Prepare yourself for the season with great things to have on hand for yes, just you!
Here are some recommended items that will help you maximize every moment of joy that summer has to offer- you deserve it.
We are delighted to partner with handmadedollsvg in giving away this beautiful doll. Her name is Paulette. Let us tell you the story of her designers.
Sisters Vero and Gaby established their business, handmadedollsvg, to assist their parents. When thinking of what they could do to help, they thought about their love for creating and imagination, and decided to make handmade dolls for children. They were inspired to bring back the magic of pretend play that they had when they were young girls, and wanted to bring this feeling to today’s children.
This beautiful weighted pillow from @pillowpowerla is such a thoughtful gift for that special someone in your life. We’re talking significant other, special friend, or even your grandchild! Made with vintage Japanese fabric, this one-of-a-kind pillow has hypoallergenic filling and weighted beads. It measures 13” x 7”… perfect as a neck pillow.

There’s no better time than the holiday season to help children learn a little bit more about manners! After all, life can be much more enjoyable with a little ‘please’ and ‘thank-you’. What better way than to give children their very own Thank-You Cards. Go ahead and let’s do this the old-fashion way. Purchase a cute box of cards for your grandkids to have on hand. Since manners are always in season, consider this a year-round gift of love.
A key component to our own happiness often lies in the answer to this question: what are we doing to make others happy?*
Sometimes the best things we can do for others are the simple things we often overlook. Today’s list is a small collection of things we can do to recognize and appreciate the people around us. So simple, yet everlasting.
This Mother’s Day, we want to let you in on the sweetest gift idea that EVERY mother, daughter, friend, aunt, or even baker would want! Over the past year many of us have been exchanging recipes with our family and friends. Now it’s time to thank those closest to you. How about a custom engraved cutting board, sketched with their entire recipe written out, in their handwriting!? We were gifted one by our grandchildren, and it’s just a beautiful addition to our kitchen!
Masks are here to stay — at least for a long while. One of our favorite ways to wear a mask (and not lose it) is to wear a mask chain. Have you tried it? We have found two sites that make the chains… and the chains are made by KIDS. Plus, each company donates a portion of their proceeds to charity. How great is this! Take a look. You may want to order one – or more!
We are so excited about this giveaway! The winner will receive a Gramma in a Box for both November AND December! (value of each box is $20)
Gramma in a Box is perfect for: grandparents who spend time with their grandchildren; grandparents who want to send something to their grandchildren because they don’t see them as often as they’d like (you can Skype or Facetime with your grandkids when they get their Gramma in a Box); nieces and nephews; college students (their dorm mates will love this!); stay at home date night for couples; and even parents who want a fun activity with their children without all the work! Gramma in a Box is perfect for everyone!
We know that it goes without saying that grandparents are known to spoil the kids when mom and dad aren’t around… but what’s so wrong with that?! And, we know as grandparents we should be exercising control, but sometimes we can’t! So, here are some of our favorite ideas; there’s something for all ages from a site that we LOVE! Check out our favorites from Uncommon Goods…
Win this gift certificate (valued at $40) just in time for the perfect Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthday, or any ‘day’ celebration! Do you have loads of homemade art masterpieces your grandchildren have gifted you over the years, (or in the past few weeks!), but don’t know what to do with it all? PrintArtKids is a great modern answer to this (!) that extends way beyond the refrigerator. Perhaps you want to gift someone’s artwork and make it into something they keep as well. Even kids would love this as a gift to them – the possibilities are endless. This is definitely a thumbs up.

Mom’s special holiday is closer than you think, and remember, Mom always comes first. That’s the rule. Here’s six fabulous gifts that will make this holiday even better – our editor’s picks. Maybe you can’t “buy” a mother’s love—but you can at least grease the wheels by getting her the right gift. Maybe it’s a pair of shoes she’s been eyeing for ages. Maybe it’s a new gadget to keep up with her busy life. Maybe all that matters is that it comes from her favorite kid (you, obviously). Whatever the case, it’ll be here on our list!
