ove are the images for the products I am gifting this year, I have reviewed all of them and can attest to the quality of each product and below I will give you a little bit of information about each of them and the targeted age. I don't specify a gender of preference as I am a huge proponent of children playing with what interests them not what is gender appropriate.
UglySnuglies: The specific one I received to review was Porky Panda on sale right now for about 23$ this is a great gift from Grandma to any kid age 2-10! Make sure to pick one age appropriate as they are more than just a stuffed animal with the accessories varying in age range. The Panda itself is definitely all age appropriate with it's accessory being a blanket.
Bulk bricks: Buying individual Lego brand sets adds up in price very very quickly, so when looking to just let a kid build what better way then to buy equivalent bricks in bulk? Click'n Play 1000 brick bag is hours of play for only 30$ any "master builder" would be so excited to receive it. Age appropriate only for 4-6 in my personal opinion if you have a 4 year old that doesn't stick blocks in their face holes.
Velocity toys Portable Piano: A perfect little keyboard for the little ones in your life. Check out my review by clicking to the link above.
Disclosure: I received these products at reduced cost or free in order to include them in my holiday gift guide. However, I did get to pick specific items to review so they are all my own personal selections and all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
When it comes to buying items for people who don't necessarily need something I always come up blank. I mean honestly what is my mom a woman who purchases everything she needs going to want. So I look for pretty things that are unique and will stand out.
Novica.com offers some amazing hand-crafted gifts that are fair trade and are unlike anything you would find else where. My personal selection for my mom was a hand-crafted mosaic tile mirror with gold inlay tiles. This mirror is perfect to hang or to set on top of a dresser and really is a masterpiece.

The second item I wanted to feature is the beautiful handmade Royal Silk Scarf made in the Ma Chau village of Vietnam. This is one of the many beautiful items that are available from the World Vision Catalog. The vibrant colors will be a conversation piece on anyone who wears it and the proceeds go to an amazing cause of helping support the women and children of the village. So it's a feel good gift as well as a tax deduction double win!
Third item I want to feature is the handcrafted jewelry from right here in the USA from Pretty Peacock. These unique items are amazingly solid and well constructed and so very unique. I would definitely be proud to gift or receive anything from their line. The Kite rises highest against the Wind necklace is utterly stunning and perfect for someone who needs a little reminder that they are Amazing. Sometimes we all forget how truly amazing we are and as a mother I can attest when things get hard it's hardest to realize that it really is a growing experience. Check out my full review here.
The fourth item is a throw blanket from Society6.com, prior to my review I had never heard of Society6 but the unique artistic home decor is out of this world and perfect for anyone in love with pop art. Check out my review here!
