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.

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.

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.

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.

Back To School with TheraBreath For Kids

Posted on August 9, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

TheraBreath for Kids is amazing.  I’ve used it, and I have halitosis.  So, I know it works.  I denied for years, that my breath is bad, but I couldn’t take it anymore.  I mean, I did all I could growing up, and always got picked on.  Now that I’m 41, and my husband picks on me, I’m sick of it.  So, when I was offered TheraBreath for Kids, I took it.  I use it on my 6 year old, as well.  But, it’s really a miracle worker.  The taste isn’t strong, either.

TheraBreath for Kids Anti Cavity Oral Rinse is great for Jacob.  Jacob’s dentist has been supposed to get their Nitrous Machine fixed, for over a year.  And, they haven’t yet.  So being that Jacob has cavities, I just TheraBreath Anti Cavity Oral Rinse to keep those cavities from becoming bigger.  We had a bad experience with Novocain, at a different dentist.

Key factors about TheraBreath for Kids:

– helps prevent cavities

Back To School Lunch With Newman’s Own Organics

Posted on August 8, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

We love Newman’s Own Organics, and this is the perfect time of year for you to get acquainted with them, if you haven’t already.  Their products are perfect for school lunches.  Completely organic, and delicious.

My 6 year old loves the Fig Newmans, and the Alphabet Cookies.  I’ll be packing these in his lunch, every day.  We’ve been eating Newman’s Own Organics for years.  They are delicious.  Every product has a special touch, and the fact that it’s all organic, is amazing.

My favorite is the popcorn.  I love it.  I just ate a bag 2 days ago.  It’s perfect.  No need to add anything to it.  My spouse’s favorite is the Spelt Pretzels.  They said they are absolutely delicious.  My daughter’s favorite, age 20, is “all the candies”.  She loves the licorice, and the peanut butter cups most.  She said Newman’s Own Organics is the best Peanut Butter Cup she’s tasted.

Their Story:

It’s always a privilege to share the Newman’s Own story – our history, who we are, what we do, and the values that have guided us since our founding. The “we” in the story includes Newman’s Own, Inc., a food and beverage company founded in 1982, and its sole owner, the Newman’s Own Foundation, an IRS-recognized charitable corporation, which carries on Paul Newman’s commitment to use all the money it receives (royalties and profits) from the sale of Newman’s Own products for charitable purposes.

Colgate Power Brushes are amazing, and they are perfect for your little ones, going back to school.

These new toothbrushes talk to you.  Tell you where to brush, and for how long.  I love it.  My son, age 6, is now pretty much brushing his teeth without help.  I stand and watch, to make sure he does it correctly, but with the help of the Power (Talking Brush), it’s so easy to get his teeth brushed.

The Minions is just one of the choices, you will have to go to the Colgate Kids website to see what you can choose from.  The Colgate Kids Interactive Toothbrush with Timer is so great.  You will really enjoy being able to brush your own teeth, while your child is brushing their teeth.  This makes getting ready for school so much easier.

Key Factors:

Mickey’s Found Sounds A Musical Exploration Storybook

Posted on August 8, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

Mickey’s Found Sounds is a great Storybook, that you can interact with online.

Mickey’s Found Sounds says 4+ on the cover, but my son is 6, and loves it.  He’ll be going to the first grade, and he’s really into the book reading to him, online.  I’ve never seen him so excited.  When it comes to this book, he drops everything, and runs to the iPad, to hear the book read to him.  There are also Sing Along and Activities options.  Jacob usually chooses the read along, though, because he’s reading with the book.

Disney Learning books are so much fun, for kids Jacob’s age.  There are also Moana & Tangled books to choose from.  But, since I have a boy, I chose to get the Mickey’s Found Sounds A Musical Exploration Storybook.  I couldn’t have picked a better book.  I’ve been collecting books, for Jacob, since he was born.  And, this is the best book I could’ve picked.  It’s the only one that will read to him, and at his pace.  All he has to do is watch the screen, and the pages flip, and the story is read.

Sing Along is so much fun, as well.  It pulls the words up on the screen, so you can sing along to some fun songs.

Then there’s Activities.  You have two choices, for your child.  But, they are both so much fun.  I’m waiting for Jacob to get up, today, so we can play with the book, and website, again.  I know that he really enjoys it, and I enjoy seeing him so excited.

Kahiniwalla For Your Little One

Posted on July 10, 2017 in kids Reviews

We love Kahiniwalla.  And, though my son is 6, he loved receiving the Crab, and the Octopus, to play with.  He is so thrilled.  The also with stood the kid test.  He’s put them through everything, and they are still in one piece.  From chewing on the legs, to throwing across the room.  You name it, he did it.  I’m thrilled to say they are made so durable.

I want to start with the Tea Set.  If I had a girl, I would’ve requested this sample.  Look how cute, and amazing it is.  Any little girl would be lucky to have this piece.

The Red Crab is Jacob’s favorite character.  He carries it around, and even takes it to bed.  There are no sharp parts, so we don’t have to worry about him being hurt.  These are perfect for any baby or child.

There’s all kinds of products, including Keychains, Ornaments, etc.  You really need to go take a look at the site, and look around.  I know you will find something perfect for that little girl, or guy, in your life.

About the Company:

Kahiniwalla was established in 2010 by Austin and Marita Miller. Upon his return from work as a product designer with Mennonite Central Committee’s job creation program in Bangladesh, Austin wanted to continue helping to provide employment for the poor of Bangladesh and decided to do so by distributing their high quality handmade products in North America.
