2012 Holiday Gift Guide

Suggestions from the Go-To Mom ~

You might prefer doing crafts or sledding in the snow with your kids rather than holiday shopping, but here’s a holiday gift guide with suggestions for gifts that won’t break the bank. Plus, your family will truly love these gifts!

Here are some of my favorite picks for this year’s video gift guide.

Smartpen from Livescribe.com

Record everything you hear, say and write, and link audio recordings directly to notes with the Sky wifi Smartpen from Livescribe, featuring 4 GB of memory to record 400 hours of audio and thousands of pages of notes, diagrams and drawings1. Tap anywhere on a page to replay audio from that exact moment, and wirelessly sync notes and audio to your free Evernote account. Replay, search and share your interactive notes, anytime and anywhere from PC, Mac, iOS or Android devices.

Ultimate Cake Pops Set by Bakerella

The Ultimate Cake Pops Set makes it easy to create adorable cake pops with some of Bakerella’s Favorite designs. Crumble your cake, mix it with frosting and mold it in an assortment of shapes using the items in this set. Then dip in melted candy coating and decorate. It’s that simple. Just shape, dip, decorate and display your creations to become a (cake) pop star, just like Bakerella.

BabbaBox by Jessica Kim

BabbaBox is a monthly subscription box that is delivered to your home with ALL the physical materials plus know-how content to really engage with your kids. You can gift a BabbaBox experience for 1 month, 3 months or a full year.

Jeans, jackets & other items from Levi.com

What dad (or mom…or really any person) couldn’t use a few updates to his wardrobe? The Levi’s® brand epitomizes classic American style and effortless cool.

Lush – Fresh handmade cosmetics

Lush products are made from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. They make them fresh by hand using little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients, and tell you when they were made.

Hallmark recordable books

Retell favorite stories in your very own voice for a family tradition you can share no matter where you are. The book plays music on every two-page spread and features Voice Save™ Technology. You can choose from a variety of titles including holiday books like Santa Claus is Coming to Town and The Night Before Christmas or children’s classics such as Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I Love You.

Have a great holiday season and have fun shopping!

Spread the word!

@Hadia_Sh I love recordable books too. My brother created one for my kids a few years ago and they love hearing Uncle John read to them – even if he can’t read in person!
