Knitting Kits

With so many flashy toys on the market it’s incredibly easy to shop for children. I’ll have plenty of holiday shopping guides upcoming featuring gift ideas for the kids and one or two for men but I wanted to start early this season by sharing some of the fun products I’ve had the chance to review in the last few months. Holiday shopping for women can be tough but it isn’t impossible! 

Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

The Luma Comfort HC12B has it all! It blends into our home decor seamlessly, barely distinguishable as a functional product. Not only does it not look like a clunky old humidifier, it certainly doesn’t sound like one either! Super quiet and efficient!  The HC12B Cool Mist Humidifier produces 2.5 gallons of mist daily and effectively covers rooms up to 650 square feet making it perfect for any medium to large size room. Connect with Luma Comfort  at &

The Mighty Mug

With a seven month old granddaughter and a houseful of kids, spills happen! I love my Mighty Mug because quite frankly I can’t handle spills and tons of chaos without my coffee! Mighty Mug is the innovative mug that grips to your desk when knocked into. Say good-bye to your old mug that falls over and spills. Desks of the world rejoice!I have the teal one pictured above and the color is just beautiful but there are many other colors to choose from. It retails for just under $20. Oh, and you know when adults tend to spill drinks right? Yeah, Mighty Mug has just launched a KickStarter feating barware that won’t fall. No kidding! 

Jewelry by Inspired Silver

The prices at Inspired Silver are low and the quality is great. They offer such a wide selection of products and I’m so excited that they have Nonna jewelry! I chose the Nonna Pave Heart Toggle Necklace and I love it, but it’s a little flashy for everyday. I’ll tell you, when I became a grandmother at 35 years old chosing what my gorgeous little granddaughter would call me was not easy – I am young and hip (if I do say so myself!) and just wanted something fun and cute and so I reached into my Italian genes and picked Nonna. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the cutest little shirts, jewerly, etc. for Nana, Mimi, Grammy, etc. but no Nonnas – until I found Inspired Silver that is! They have charms, necklaces,bracelets,  holiday ornaments and more. Also, I sort of wanted to celebrate me after my 155 pound weight loss, so I opted for this gorgeous “She believed she could so she did” necklace and it’s the one I wear most often! Can you believe it was only $10?!


Handmade Gifts

Now that I’ve been on a crafting binge, and in years past on a significantly reduced holiday gifts budget, I’m a big fan of giving handmade gifts! My friends at Craftsy have come up with these fantastic handmade gift kits that would be perfect to buy and create gifts or to gift the entire kit for that special crafty woman in your life!
