GourmetGiftBaskets.com has your Back To School Treats All In One Place

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love GourmetGiftBaskets.com.  I was able to find my 6 year old, son, a great back to school gift, for First Grade.  He keeps saying “I’m not going back to school until I’m 14!”  But, we just keep telling him it doesn’t work that way.  So, I came across the cutest Back To School Basket, through GourmetGiftBaskets.com, that I just had to get him.  Even though school doesn’t start here, until August 28, I let him open it, but told him that he has to go back to school in order to be allowed to open it.

When he saw the Teddy Bear, in the Back To School Bear Hug Care Package,  he got an immediate smile on his face.  He fell in love.  If there was a way that I could send the teddy bear to school, without the other kids picking on him, I would.  It would probably ease the first day jitters.  However, I take him back and forth, so I can put it in the car, and have it in his car seat when he gets picked up.  He also enjoyed all the treats, in the basket, and even shared some with us.

There was a lot in the GourmetGiftBaskets.com basket.  More than I expected, and that’s the truth.  It was so cute.  Packaged all up, and he tore into it, as soon as it was dropped off.

The 12 inch Cookie Cake is really great too.  I’m thinking about sending one to Jacob’s new teacher.  I’m sure it would be appreciated.  And, she is going to have enough kids in her class, that she could probably use a nice treat, during her lunch.

There are also plenty of other treats, not just for Back To School, that are available on their site.  Click above, or below, to check out their goodies.

Legacy Brush for that extra close shave

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I love Legacy Shave Evolution Brush.  I put it on my shave cream can, as soon as I received it.  It gets the cream all up and where it needs to be.  It takes shaving to a different level.  It’s the ultimate shaving tool.  I use it for my legs every time I shave.

The Legacy Shave Evolution Brush will bring you close shaves for a long time.  It makes shaving so much smoother.  The shaving cream really gets close to your skin, and there’s no mess all over your hands.  I find this amazing.  I have always hated shaving, but this makes the whole process so much more worth while.

The LEGACY SHAVE EVOLUTION BRUSH offers “The Ultimate Shaving Experience” by stimulating and lifting the hair follicles allowing the users an enhanced experience with the cleanest, closest shave possible. It also reduces the amount of shaving cream or gel used, saving the users money. Most important, it makes shaving fun again. It is the first universal brush attachment for both foam and gel shaving cream cans. It gives a more elegant shaving experience: hands free of foam or gel.

There are a lot of different colors you can order Legacy Shave Evolution Brush in, including Camo.  We love the Camo one.  And, even though I did receive one for review, I ended up buying 2 more.  There are 3 people that shave, in our home, and once I tried the Legacy Shave Evolution Brush, I needed to make sure we all had this comfort.

Your Dishes deserve Dish Fish

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Dish Fish is amazing.  I love the technology.  The sponge stays cleaner longer, and I don’t have to worry about built up bacteria.

From heavy duty tasks like pots & pans to delicate surfaces like glass & stove tops, there is a DishFish for you.

The Powercell Technology in the Dish Fish Scrubber is everlasting.  But, my favorite part is how it stands up, so it can dry more properly.  You can clean cutlery, thanks to the gills, without having to worry about cutting yourself.  I love how my spouse cleaned the grill with it, brought it in, rinsed it, and Dish Fish was as good as new.  You couldn’t even tell he cleaned a greasy surface.

My Dish Fish Scrubber is going on 3 weeks old, and still looks like it was purchased yesterday.

Then, there’s the Dish Fish Dual.  It’s also amazing.  Dual sided scrubber & sponge for the toughest messes.  With the shape of the Dish Fish, you can put his front end in first, and get into deep spots.  Making it so every inch of your dishes, and pots, are clean.  The Dish Fish Dual is fabulous at cleaning up wet messes.  It soaks up into the sponge, and stays there, until you ring it out.

If you have a child in College, I suggest getting the Dish Fish for them.  They will be able to keep their products clean.  It’s a great little tool to have around.

The Dish Fish also fits perfectly in any hand.  So, this is great for any size person.  My 6 year old loves using it as well.  When I let him do dishes.

Melitta for On The Go Moms/Dads

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I love Melitta!  It’s the best for getting coffee, and for their coffee makers.  I recently got to try the 1 cup Pour Over Coffee Brew Cone & Travel Mug Set.  It’s so great.  It’s so easy to make my coffee, and fast working.  It’s great to have added this product to my cabinet.  It’s easy to get a cup of Joe in the A.M. now.

Details:

A fast, inexpensive way to bring out coffee’s true flavor with handcrafted brewing

Uses #2 or #4 size cone filters.

Cone design enables you to see into the cup without lifting to avoid overfill

Screw-top travel coffee mug guarantees top is secured and prevents leaking

Travel mug holds 16oz of hot coffee. Its narrow base fits in most car cup holders

Plastic cone is BPA free and top rack dishwasher safe

Travel mug is hand wash only

Now, let’s talk Melitta Coffee.  Their Caramel Macchiato is to die for.  This coffee is so good, that I actually went through an entire bag in 2 days.  I can’t help it.  I love it.  The Caramel Macchiato melted in my mouth.  It has a sweet Vanilla cream taste, along with the caramel.  It’s so good, that I didn’t even share it.  My 20 year old, daughter, would’ve loved it, and I feel so guilty, that I’ll have to order more.  I never knew a coffee to be this delicious, seriously.

The coffee is delicious, and the products are great.  What more can I tell you?  Go now, to Melitta’s site, and check it out.  Link is above and below.  You will love them as much as I do.

Here’s a Recipe for you to try, once you’ve received your Melitta:

John Paul Pet, Your Pet will smell Fabulous

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide pets Reviews

I love John Paul Pet products.  I recently tried the Lavender Mint line.  My dog smells like a million bucks.  This stuff is so great smelling, and it got her so clean.  We usually take Jade to the Pet Store to get a bath, but when I received this line, I had to try it on her, for myself.  She looks so clean, and smells so good.  Better than the groomer could’ve done.

The Lavender Mint Shampoo reduces skin irritation, while it cleanses, calms, and sooths your pet.

How it works:

Tea Tree leaf oil along with Lavender and Mint extracts, combine to soothe skin irritation allowing hot spots to heal.

The Lavender Mint Detangling Spray made Jade so easy to brush.  She has clumps of hair still coming out, so she needed brushed.  This formula made it where she didn’t yelp, while being groomed, by me.

The cats even loved the spray, and you know, normally cats don’t like being sprayed.  I did get them to purr, then sprayed them.  Leaving them smelling fresh, and clean.  I love the smell of Lavender Mint.  My entire house smells good.

How it works:

Thirteen Conditioning Agents including Oatmeal, Chamomile, Sweet Almond Oil, and Panthenol combine to coat and penetrate strands to release tangles.

John Paul Pet has so many products, and I’m sure there is one right for your pet.  Whether it be a dog, cat, ferret, bird, et cetera.  You will find what you need at the John Paul Pet Online store.  The prices are great, and the products really work.

Back To School with Name Bubbles

Posted on August 15, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

Name Bubbles are labels that you can put on your school supplies, clothes, et cetera, to make sure they stay safe this school year.

We love Name Bubbles in our home.  My son, who is 6, will be starting First Grade, and my daughter, age 20, will be in her 3rd year of College.  So, Name Bubbles are perfect for both of them.  Jacob, for his belongings, including his book bag, and extra clothes to Sarah for her Dorm products, and books.  The kids both love them, and I’m sure the other parents that I associate with, will be asking where to get them.

Last year, during Kindergarten, I used a leading brand, and by the end of the year, they fell off.  These are super great, sturdy, and sticky enough to last the entire year.  I mean, in Kindergarten, we labeled everything.  This year, I’m sure I won’t be labeling as much, but will still be labeling a lot.  Including any toys Jacob may decide to take to school, for recess.

Sarah loves the Unicorn Labels she received.  She put them on all of her books, to make sure they don’t get ripped off the first day of College, or thereafter.  She will also use them for the back of her personal items, making sure they are all safe.  She is old enough that she doesn’t really need them for her clothes, but if she wants to make sure that the roommate doesn’t wear them, she may just use them for her clothes, and they are washer/dryer safe.

They are also dishwasher safe, as well as, I’ve soaked them in water, on the side of a bowl, and they didn’t come off.

I even ordered my husband a pack, of the plain labels, to use on his personal items at work.  He has supplied his own products, not saying no one can use them, but saying he wants them back, when so and so is done with the products.

Garden Lites would make a great lunchtime snack for Back To School

Posted on August 14, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

We recently tried Garden Lites, and they are wonderful.  My 6 year old loves the SpongeBob Chocolate Krabby Square.  He’s been eating them everyday, since we purchased them.  I will be putting them in his lunch this year.  Because 1 I know it’s something he’ll eat, and 2 it’s healthy.  With SpongeBob on the box, my son has no problem eating these.  It also helps that they taste great.

I’ve tried them, and they are really yummy.  But, I’ve always loved Zucchini and Carrots.  That’s right, there’s vegetables in your brownies. So, that’s why I say they are healthy for your child, or even you.

The waffles are delightful, as well.  I can’t even taste the Vegetable root that is in there.  They taste just like a great waffle.  I do add syrup to my waffles, making them not so healthy, but with the Garden Lites brand, I know I can add syrup with no added guilt.

You can go to this link, and print out some great coupons for Garden Lites products.  You will save some money, while feeding great food to your family.

The great reasons to try & eat Garden Lites:

  • Clean & Simple Ingredients
  • Gluten Free
  • Non GMO
  • Veggie Rich

I mean, in all honesty, what child likes their vegetables?  My son won’t eat them if he sees them, so this is perfect, because he can’t see them.  Other than on the box, but I don’t show him the box.  I show him the pouch with SpongeBob on it.

For school, I’ll put them in a zip lock baggie, so he can get the baggie open.  Not sure if he can get the pouch open, so this is to ensure he eats his healthy snack.

Honeycat Cosmetics for Smelling Amazing Going Back To School

Posted on August 14, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I’ve had a special place in my heart for Honeycat Cosmetics, since I was introduced to it, a few years ago.  So, when I had the chance to review it recently, I couldn’t turn it down.  And, I must say the products I received are all fabulous.

My mother in law started ordering from Honeycat Cosmetics about 3 years ago.  Her favorite product, by far, is the Rub My Tummy Body Lotion.  Well, it’s a hand lotion too, but she uses it strictly on her body, after showering.  She says it leaves her feeling fresh, and smelling fantastic.

I love the Cat-Tails for Two Shower Gel formula.  It smells just like Apricot, and I feel so pretty when I get out of the shower.  I love the way I feel, while showering with it, and how soft my skin is, when I get out of the shower.  This is my favorite Honeycat product, so far.

Purr For The Cure is so adorable, and worth every penny.  My mother in law has had Cancer since 2010, and this made her day.  She feels untouchable in her Honeycat T-shirt.  She really loves the tote too, and not to mention all the products in it.  You can choose either Pink or Black.  They both come with awesome goodies.

My 20 year old, daughter, loves the Vanilla Cream Grooming Bar.  She said it leaves her feeling sparkling clean, and smelling so yummy.  I love the smell of it, but that’s her favorite product, so I let her use it all the time.

There is so much to see, over at Honeycat Cosmetics, and everything my family has tried is wonderful.  So, make sure you head over to their site, through any of the links, in this post, and order something today.  The prices are great, and the products are exceptional.  You will love every purchase you make.

The best part is, shop with the discount code PURR30, and get 30% off your entire order.

i See Me Books for Back To School

Posted on August 13, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

I’ve loved I See Me for the longest time.  I’ve been getting Jacob, my 6 year old, books from I See Me for years.  So, when I was able to get My U.S.A. Road Trip Gift Set, I jumped at it.  This book is amazing, every page personalized with a picture of Jacob, that I was able to scan and send over.  His name appears on several pages, and it makes him feel like part of the story.  We haven’t started scratching off the map yet, because he’s only been to 2 states, and the one is the state he lives in.  However, we will be going away, in September, so upon coming home, we will be scratching off Ohio.

My U.S.A. Road Trip Gift Set is the perfect gift for any child, any age.  Because they can always use the map, to mark off the states they’ve visited.  To be honest, I’m thinking of getting one for myself.  I love it.  The book has your image on every page, in different objects, like a boat, car, airplane, et cetera.  It’s so cool.

There’s other books to choose from too.  Including books for pets, babies, adults, and children.  I need to get a book for my 20 year old, daughter, now that I see there are adult books.  These books are all great, and can be gifted to someone with a love for books.

I’m telling you, you should definitely check out I See Me!  Their books are one of a kind, and can be a keepsake for the rest of a child’s/adult’s life.  They will thank you for getting them something so thoughtful.  And, get FREE SHIPPING if you spend at least $60.

Moore’s Marinade & Sauces are Great

Posted on August 13, 2017 in Reviews women

We recently were introduced to Moore’s Marinade.  And, we absolutely love it.  Since trying the Honey Barbecue, we’ve purchased other varieties, including Original & Creamy Ranch Buffalo.  They are all fantastic, and we will be purchasing again, very soon.

With school starting back up in 2 weeks, Moore’s Marinades & Sauces will make for a great additive to our chicken.  I, personally, love the Honey Barbecue, so I will be marinading in it quite often.  I know my son, age 6, loves the Honey Barbecue taste, as well.  My daughter, age 20, will just be glad to have a great meal, when home from College.

The Creamy Ranch Buffalo is so good, and I don’t like spicy.  But, I could eat Creamy Ranch Buffalo all day.  I added it to some skinless, boneless chicken breast when my in laws came over to eat, and it went over very well.  My mother in law doesn’t like super spicy either, and she said it was delicious.  It must’ve been the added Ranch, that made it seem not so spicy.

Features of the Creamy Ranch Buffalo Marinade include:

  • Twist on our classic flavor
  • Creamy texture
  • Mild heat (less spicy than regular buffalo sauce) – good for kids!
  • Combines two favorite flavors into one
  • Adds variety for tailgate season foods
  • Delicious on Veggies
  • Gluten Free
  • Available in 16 oz bottle
  • Award winning flavor

 

If you click on any of the links, in this post, it will take you to the Moore’s Marinade website, where you will find a coupon, for your next purchase, as well as stores where you can find Moore’s at.  This is fantastic.  It’s not expensive anyway, but to give me a coupon, that I can take to Walmart, and buy more, that’s HUGE!
