My Son is Going to Love These Bathroom Printables!

I have a three year old, and as you know if you've ever had a toddler, he can be a tad bit stubborn at times. I think he gets it from his dad, but his dad will say this trait comes from me. It's always a bit of a fun joke between us, but either way, he sure likes to do things his way! That makes it difficult at times to get something done, such a brushing his teeth before bed or washing his hands after using the bathroom. 

I found these super cute printables for the bathroom. They are super cheap and they go to a great cause. Frame these and hang them up and they make a great reminder for the little ones, that everybody has to brush, wash, flush, and floss! I love the message and the design makes for super cute home decor.

Road Tape That my Nephew Will Love

I feel like there are new uses for tape popping up ALL over the place! The latest and greatest? Road tape! My nephew loves anything to do with cars and racing (imagine his excitement when the movie Cars 2 came out!) His birthday is in late February and of course, it's "cars" themed!

So you can imagine MY excitement when I discovered this road racing tape and I know that it's going to be a perfect addition to his gift. We got him a HUGE set of cars with a "parking garage" so he can put them all away when he's done using them--ha, yeah right!

He can make roads where ever he wants to, and even make a little town out of all of the roads! He will have a blast with this, as he can make them all over the house!

A Multi-purpose Stapler

My brother is a school teacher and he loves what he does. He looks forward to going to work every morning and has a great group of students this year. When I visit the school to stop by and say hi to him on his prep hour, I get overwhelmed by the stuff on his desk. He has lesson plans, student homework, handouts, notes, textbooks and more. I don't know how he keeps it all straight! I wouldn't be able to.

I found this amazing product on Pinterest. This multi-purpose stapler is exactly what he needs! His birthday is coming up in March, so I am lucky to have found this product that he's going to love and get use out of! This stapler not only works by attaches pages together with a staple, but also stamps a date on the pages as well. This helps organize the documents. It should help organize his desk and keep things in order!

A Home Safety Kit is a Great Baby Shower Gift

I have a baby shower to go to for my best friend next month. She is expecting a baby boy and I can't wait! I am SO excited for them. I have been shopping for gifts for months (as soon as I found out she was pregnant!)

I am giving her a HUGE bin full of things--both practical and fun! In it, I have included a ton of necessities, such as diapers, wipes, Desitin, washclothes, baby wash/shampoo and more. For "fun" things, I got the baby some rattles, books, and a couple of super cute outfits. There are a couple more things and the gift will be complete!

I found this Dreambaby Home Safety Kit to "baby-proof" her house. Safety is SO important when it comes to little ones that I know she's going to appreciate this!

A Microwave Popcorn Popcorn

My guy LOVES popcorn. We have movie nights ALL of the time (especially during winter, when it's too cold to do things like camping and grilling). We try to rent or buy a new release movie at least once a week (on Tuesdays, when they come out!). Having popcorn during a movie is almost a requirement. We've experimented with some different flavors and toppings/seasonings (Parmesan cheese tastes GREAT on popcorn, by the way).

I found this item and I know it's going to take our popcorn making to whole new levels. This is a microwave popcorn popper and it's so much cheaper AND healthier than regular microwave popcorn. Plus, it's SUPER easy to add your own butter and fun toppings! This doesn't use oil or any messy bags. Just put the seeds into the microwave popper and cook for 2-3 minutes! Don't forget to put the vented lid on, or you'll have a MESS!

Trading Cards Are Great for Guys of Any Age

I know SO many sports nuts that I know. My brother, uncle, husband, son, and several friends are all sports, all the time. When we have family get togethers, I feel like I have been transported into a taping of an ESPN segment. Thanks to these sports nuts in my family and friends group, I also would never be able to forget that the NHL is officially back and in season starting TODAY. We are having a big get together tonight to celebrate and cheer on our favorite team.

I am very excited to get together with everybody and share some good food and great times! I have also come to terms with the fact that it's going to be a lot of sports talk. This time, I have something to add in on it! They have all been collecting sports cards for years. I was told about this great sports cards website at work and they offer cards for every sport at great prices! The guys are going to be SO excited about this!

He Would Like A WoodWick Candle

You may not believe it, but guys really do like candles for their own rooms. Candles are actually a great gift for a guy. He knows that his room probably doesn't smell the greatest. If you are going to get him a candle though.. you need to get something good like a WoodWick candle, something that will actually make the whole room smell good. WoodWick candles are actually my favorite because I feel like with other candles sometimes all you smell is the wick burning and not the actual scent of the candle, but with these all you smell is the amazing scent of the candle. I have a pretty big room, and I know when I have it burning I can smell it outside of my room. I do; however, think my favorite part of the candle is that it makes a crackling noise, so it sounds like a real wood burning fire.

Bath and Body Works Men's Line

My guy loves to smell great. He doesn't take it overboard, but he really appreciates a great smelling deodorant, cologne, and body wash. I appreciate it as well! Nothing smells better than a man that's fresh out of the shower. YUM!

I was at Bath and Body Works in the mall yesterday loading up on hand soaps for our kitchen and bathrooms when I saw their line of men's products. I had no idea that Bath and Body Works carried a men's line! This surprised and intrigued me.

I went directly over there an instantly put my nose to work. These products smell DELICIOUS! I loaded up on 2-in-1 hair and body wash, cologne, body lotion and body spray. I got a variety of scents so that he can rotate through them and wear them on different days. He loved them, too!

Keeper for Wallet and Phone

My guy has all sorts of things to take around when he goes places. He works at an advertising company, so he usually has his phone, laptop, keys, wallet, and a couple of business cards. I felt like getting him a bag to carry everything around it, but he's kind of against the whole "man bag" concept. Oh well, at least I tried!

I did find something that would help him out a little bit. This awesome product is called the Keeper and it's a case for the iPhone 5 that also has a wallet attached for a couple of credit or debit cards as well as an ID. I showed him this and he's really excited about it! With this, he can keep his phone and cards all together. This will make for less bulk to carry around in his pocket.

A Real Flame Ventless Gel Fireplace is a Perfect Office Addition

I stopped in to my guy's office the other day because I was in the neighborhood and wanted to surprise him with a coffee. I haven't been to his office since he started his job a couple of months ago. I meant to go a long time ago--when he first started--but I got so busy with the holidays and everything that I just never made it in!

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed in what I saw when I went there. His office was so boring and drab that it felt cold and uncomfortable. It didn't feel like a place that I could spend 40 hours a week at.

I took it upon myself to spruce up and decorate his office--it's practically an emergent situation! I found this great real flame ventless gel fireplace so that he can enjoy the crackle and flame of a real fireplace yet this is artificial. This is very contemporary looking yet would add an extremely cozy feeling to the office.

Let's Not Forget About the Dog...

I love my dog. He's a part of our family! He gets spoiled, but I'm glad he's happy. He's for the most part a very clean dog, except when it comes to eating. When we fill his food dish in the evening, he gets so excited that he ends up pushing the bowl around with his nose and of course spills a little on the way.

I found this personalized scrolled hanging double pet feeder and I had to instantly order it. This will make our home look so much cleaner and nicer when there isn't dog food dishes all over the place. This hangs right on the wall and can be adjusted depending on the size of the dog. I love that this can be personalized, which is great!

I know that our dog is going to love his new feeding dish.

Giving My Guy the Gift of Relaxation with a Massage in Orange County

My guy loves to relax as much as the next person. He, however, never takes time for himself. He is always rushing around and is busy getting the next project done or going above and beyond to help out his family and friends. This is a great trait and I am so glad that he is a caring and reliable person. I would like to show him how much I appreciate what he does for me and our family by sending him to CloudMover to get a massage in Orange County. 

I can't wait to see what he thinks about CloudMover. I go there about once or twice a month to get a massage, a facial, or one of their other great body treatments that are offered and available. I know that once he sees how great it is to take some time for himself and relax, he is going to want to go back and will be getting massages all of the time!

The Perfect Man Cave Pillow

Pocket Pillow reverses to an instant drink “table.”Buy 2 & Save!
My guys loves his man cave, and no wonder--it's amazing! We spent a lot of time decorating this huge room in the basement to make it awesome! There's a pool table, a poker table, a huge sectional couch right in front of a massive flat-screened television. Of course there's a bar with a huge fridge stocked with beer and all the good refreshments. All of his friends are thinking I'm a pretty cool lady right about now!

I want to get him a couple more accessories for the man cave for Christmas and this is one of them: a man cave pillow. What makes this pillow different from the rest? One side has a soft, cushion for naps and relaxing. When the game comes on and it's time to watch, he can flip the pillow over and instantly have a place for a beer and the remote control. This is convenient and makes the perfect addition to any man cave!

Upper Deck Baseball Cards Just in Time for Spring Training

If you follow baseball like my brother does, you are excited about the start of Spring Training! Now that football season is coming to an end and the Super Bowl is fast approaching, Spring Training for baseball is just around the corner.

DCS carries a huge variety of sports cards and I really like their selection. My brother is looking for Upper Deck baseball cards before Spring Training Starts and I'm going to order some this weekend. They have a ton of great deals on sports cards for rookie players all the way to all-starts.

I can't wait to surprise him with these cards. He's going to be so excited when I stop by and drop these off!

An iPhone Projector

My guy has an iPhone and he uses it to it's fullest capacity. He has his phone full of pictures, apps, videos, movies, music and more. He is always wanting iTunes giftcards so he can add more music and movies to his phone. It makes it easy for gift giving!

I found an amazing iPhone accessory that I know he will love! It's a pocket projector and works with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. This projects movies and videos from your phone to the wall. It can project up to a 50 inch image and the quality of the video is great! This is very portable, so it is easy to bring for meetings, travel, and works great in your own home.
