My Nephew is Going to Love These Life Size Lincoln Logs

My nephew is turning three soon and I can't believe how smart he is getting! He's always wanting to color, sing, talk, and build things. Every time I see him I feel like he's achieved something new.

I found this amazing life-sized Lincoln Logs set, made out of material similar to pool noodles. Did you ever play with Lincoln Logs as a kid? They were a HIT at my daycare because it's something both girls and boys can play with. This looks like something he would love and I can't wait to see what he thinks of it! It's something I'm even going to have fun playing with. :)

Another Great Gift for My Dog

Well, as you probably know by now, my dog is spoiled rotten. We are ALWAYS getting him new things. Since we don't have children yet, he really is the one that gets all of our attention. He sure loves it and we do, too. No complaints from anybody over here!

Since I'm always looking for new things we can get for him as far as products go, I'm really happy to have found this metal engraved dog collar. I love this because this eliminates the use of those super annoying dog tags that are loud. You'll have plenty of room to put what you want on there, because there is a maximum of 15 characters per line and you get three whole lines. This keeps the dog safe and in style! Bosco is going to love this. :)

Hit A Home Run with Sports Trading Cards

Over the past two years, sports trading cards have become a big part of our family life. My two sons and my husband love to sit in the living room sprawled out on the floor, going threw all of their trading cards. Each of my sons have their own three ring binder that they put there cards in. My seven year old Coleton is a huge fan of sports, football, basketball, baseball and hockey!


Taking the time to read all the cards and memorizing the stats on the back of his cards are one of his favorite things to do. My son even takes the time to read them to his little four year old brother. With the home opener in our area on Monday April 1st, the kids were asked to wear their team shirts, sweatshirts or jerseys to school on Monday supporting our baseball team. {It is a good thing the Easter Bunny is putting new team shirts and warm up pants in their Easter Basket!} We also have a few packs of sports trading cards in their baskets too. We hit a home run with sports trading cards, have you?

An Outdoor Faucet for My Dad

Father's Day is coming up sooner than you might think. It's almost April already! Do you know what you're getting for your dad to make him feel special on Dad's Day?

I had this awesome product picked out weeks ago because I saw it and instantly knew that I had to get it and that my dad would love it. I can't wait to give it to him! This is an Outdoor Sink Station and is super convenient because it provides a sink outside without plumbing. This comes with a 40' hose and makes the perfect spot to rinse of garden tools, water plants, wash vegetables off from the garden, or get the dirt off your hands before going inside.

The Perfect Side Table for a Reader


My grandpa loves to read more than anybody I know. He is retired now and is never bored not being at work because he's always reading a book, magazine, newspaper, or pretty much anything in print. Last year for Christmas, each of the grandkids got him a one year magazine subscription to a different magazine so throughout the month he gets different magazines in the mail every couple of days. He  loves this and it was a fantastic gift idea! 

I found this side table/nightstand that holds books and magazines. This is great because he can keep his reading material close and handy without having to leave it out (my grandmother is going to be thrilled!). This would go great in the bedroom as a nightstand for those that like to read before bed, or right next to a favorite recliner or couch.

A Hot Dog Toaster

My nephew is in the toddler stage where he's being very picky about the food he eats. Right now, he's into hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. When I was a child, I remember going through a phase where I only wanted pizza! When I talked to my sister-in-law about this, she said that they doctor said this is a very normal phase and to just let him eat what he wants as long as he's getting food (since is a period of rapid growth and development).

I found this hot dog toaster that might save them all a little bit of time when it comes to meal prep time. All you do it pop the hot dogs and buns into their proper slots and push the lever down. In a few minutes there is perfectly cooked food! It takes minutes and doesn't dirty up any dishes like boiling them does.

A TV Stand for His Man Cave

Alex and I recently decided to turn out unfinished basement into a "Man Cave". This is going to be great for BOTH of us. This will open up our living room when he has his friends over, and it's in the basement so any noise (yelling during a NHL game, for example) will be done in a CLOSED off space, far away from the rest of the house.

I found this really nice TV stand from Best Buy (Did you know they had furniture? I had no idea!) and am hopefully going to get it in the next few weeks. It's going to fit the PlayStation 3, surround sound control, and digital cable box perfectly. He's going to love this!

A Laser Projection Virtual Keyboard That He Can Bring Everywhere

My guy is always on the go. He has meetings to attend, business lunches to go to, and of course, my least favorite, is traveling on business trips. I miss him so much while he's gone, but I know that in the marketing world, there isn't a ton of jobs that don't require travel.

Brookstone is one of my favorite sites because they have a ton of products that are useful and innovative. This is a laser projection virtual keyboard. The projector can be placed anywhere and it projects onto any flat surface. The keyboard connects to a device with Bluetooth technology, so it can be used with smart phones, tablets, and more.

He can bring this to meetings, on the airplane, use it at his desk, at lunches with colleagues, and at home. This would make a fantastic Father's Day gift, birthday present, and more.

My Step-Dad Will Love This Car Organizer

My step-dad travels for his job. He works in sales and is almost always in his car. He has a home office that he works in once a week, but the remaining four work days are spent traveling. I rode with him one day and almost went crazy! His car was a mess and I was tempted to go sit in the backseat because he was always asking me to hold letters, his phone, a map, etc. I don't know how he is productive with all that chaos in the vehicle.

I found this hanging car organizer and I know he's going to love it. This hangs on the car head rest and he will be able to put his planner, folders, phone, pens and pencils, map and more in this convenient, reachable spot. He'll always know where everything is. It's great!

Top of the Line Service for Rotors

My guy loves talking to me about his job. I have learned so much from him that I am always asking questions and expanding my knowledge about a ton of things that I had no clue about before. He loves all things do with with service, engineering, and mechanics.

Today, when I had my car into the shop, they said that I needed to update my brake rotors. Since I had no idea what these were, I asked my man to tell me about them. He said rotors in my vehicle are a key part is making the car stop when I push my brake pedal in my car. The brake pads in the vehicle clamp down on the rotors to stop the tires from spinning. Makes sense? It took a few explanations for it to all come together for me!

Where he works, they have to sometimes get help for their rotor work since their rotors are much more complicated than the ones in my vehicle. I did some searching and asking around and was able to recommend Windings to him for his company to use. If there's one thing I'm good at, it's doing my online research. This is a top of the line service company for rotors and I can't wait to hear how it all goes!

French Fry Maker/Potato Slicer


My man and I love to make food together. As most of you know this already, we are always trying new recipes and new foods to grill. We wanted to try to make our own french fries since we LOVE them. Some of our friends tried it and love how they turned out. They claim that they are better than what you can find in restaurants and WAY better than what you can make from frozen french fries in the oven.

This potato slicer is easy to use. Just place the potato and push down the lever. You will have evenly sliced french fries ready to be made! We have a deep fryer to make these in. It's a little bit unhealthier than baking in the oven but it tastes great! Have the seasonings ready to evenly coat the fries with when they're fresh out of the oven/deep fryer.

Pet Bunk Beds That Your Furry Friends Will Love

I love my dogs. They are such sweethearts! They really are a part of the family and I don't know what we would do without them. The dogs are attached at the hip and are always together. Wherever Bosco goes, Keeda follows and vice versa. They are extremely spoiled, too. I am always making them homemade treats, buying dog toys to provide hours of entertainment, and taking them for long walks.

I was looking around on the Brookstone website, because I am always finding amazing and unique products on there. I found this pet bunk bed and already ordered it for our dogs. They have a pet bed already, but this would be great in the living room because it saves on space. Before I purchase a pet bed, I always make sure that the cushions have a cover that is removable and machine washable--if you have dogs, you know that they have a tendency to shed and sometimes be a little messy, so always make sure that you have a way to wash their beds!

Basketball Trading Cards for Guys of All Ages

There are so many guys in the family that love everything basketball. The NBA games are always on the TV, no matter who is playing. They have favorites from almost all of the teams and even started doing a fantasy NBA league this past winter. This is not just something that the older guys in the family do, or just the younger, but is something that most of the guys in the family are interested in: young and old. It's so nice that they all share a hobby like this! It really builds bonding and enables them to spend quality time together.

A couple of years back, most of them started collecting basketball trading cards as well. It's sure easy to get them gifts when it comes to the holiday season. When they get a card they already have, they trade it. I think it kind of makes them feel like they are actually trading players to teams in the NBA! They can read about their favorite players, and keep the really good players in a special place--you never know what those will be worth someday!

A Chair Massaging Cushion to Relax With

Father's Day is just around the corner, which means hopefully summer is on its way as well. I've been thinking about what to get my dad this year. He's kind of difficult to shop for because he really doesn't NEED anything. It's not that he's picky, he just isn't a very materialistic person.

He's always asking my mom to rub his back after a long day of work and sometimes has to apply ice to it in the evenings. This Homedics Swedish Massaging Cushion is perfect for him! It sets on a chair or couch and gives a wonderful Swedish Massage. This is a great way to reduce muscle pain and increase relaxation. This even has a heating mechanism to deliver an even heat to the muscles in the back. He's going to love this and I know my mom is sure going to be thankful!

A FitBALL Balance Ball Chair He Will Love

A couple of people in my husband's office started sitting on a balance ball at their desks instead of a traditional chair. The FitBALL is becoming increasingly popular. Have any of you heard of these before? They use them in schools for children that have trouble sitting still (which would've probably helped me a lot as a child). There are also exercise DVDs out that include exercises using the FitBALL.

He started using one a couple of months ago. They are becoming popular to sit on in the office because they improve posture, core strength, and encourages active sitting. He loves it will be thrilled with this FitBALL balance chair. With this product, you get the benefits of a balance ball with increased comfort.
