Subscription Box: Spirit Sox

Posted on February 28, 2023 in 2023 Gift Guides Spring Gift Guide

Have you heard of Spirit Sox? I have a sock fetish. I own way too many pairs of socks. Now, however, I can get them delivered right to my door every month. It doesn’t cost a lot and it’s a great thing. I love Spirit Sox. They have brought my fetish to an entirely new level. I can get two surprise pairs of socks for such a cheap price. And they are high quality socks.

These Spirit Sox are so stylish. I love them. I even ordered a subscription for another Frugal Family member. She loves them too. She said she’s already worn both pairs and got so many compliments. She says she’s going to get her own subscription soon.  She loves socks as much as I do.  We are now sock buddies, along with Sisters-in-Law.  We love new style, and these socks put style on the map.

I love the pair of float socks.  They are super cute, and so comfortable. You will love the comfort in these socks, as much as, the style.

Heart-Mind Box is so Unique

Posted on November 5, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

The Heart-Mind Box is great.  There’s so many great things included in this box.  From Malas, a bookmark and book, to tea.  This box has it all, and that’s just a few products.  My 25-year-old daughter, and my 11-year old son, went through the box, and used the 20-minute candles.  They loved them.  The candles were perfect for a bit of brightness, in the night.

This Limited-Edition kit is great for helping educate the mind and educate the heart.  My kids enjoyed going through, and Sarah read “The Wisdom Of Compassion” and said the book was great.  The self-care box is outstanding.  I needed this too, and it took me where I needed to be.

The price is great, and you get so many things.  You can see all the jazz in the picture (above).  This box is great for couples, or to teach a child.  It’s going to help you so much.

The self-help box is able to help get your mind focused.  It has helped myself, and my kids to no end.  They loved it, and so did I.

My daughter, age 25, loves Spiritual products, and this box was right up her alley.  While Jacob, age 11, burned a candle just to burn it, Sarah used it for mental renewal (20 minutes for a few days).

I used a Malas to help calm down my anxiety, which I have clinical anxiety.  Even painting of the rock helped to relieve anxiety.

Award-Winning Artist, Teacher, Composer & Author Jamie Lee Hoffer Unveils Giggles & Stardust

Posted on October 27, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

New Online Destination For Preschoolers Ready To Learn, Sing, Laugh, Share & Imagine

       Original Songs, Videos & Books, Colorful Illustrations, Lovable Puppets & Captivating Stories Join Together With Jamie To Create A Warm & Nurturing Environment Where Children Can Discover The World & Themselves

The screen lights up and you’re instantly transported to a magical place where colors are brighter, faces are friendlier, music is happier and the whole world is bigger and better than you ever imagined it could be. And, best of all, your host in this wondrous new destination is so instantly likable and trustworthy, you’re ready to follow her wherever her imagination – and yours – will take you.

Welcome to GigglesandStardust.com, a brand-new online destination created by and starring a true Renaissance woman in the realm of child education – teacher, author, composer, illustrator, award-winning artist and loving Mom, Jamie Lee Hoffer.

Already an increasingly popular online personality among children and their parents thanks to a series of musical and educational videos on YouTube and elsewhere, Jamie officially launches the new Giggles and Stardust site today.

Featuring enchanting videos, original songs, book readings, colorful artwork, important life lessons, and a family of lovably unique puppets, Giggles and Stardust easily manages to be entirely contemporary while embracing the nostalgia of beloved childhood classics.

Tipping its hat to the warm and loving sensibilities that made shows like “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” and “Sesame Street” such timeless classics, GigglesandStardust.com stands in direct contrast to the overly slick, hyperkinetic children’s fare so prevalent today in favor of a thoroughly accessible environment designed not only to entertain young children but to educate them as well.

On the new Giggles and Stardust site, for example, young children are invited to spend time with Jamie and her puppet pals – including Pickles, Aunt Gloria, Cody, Sequoia, Madison Dragonson and Wide Mouth Bullfrog – as they share music, stories, social interactions, and lessons about nature, creativity, and friendship. Highlights of the site also include jam-packed Giggle Time Episodes filled with captivating, learning-centric stories, art, dance, music, and adventures.

With a focus on rhythm, color, hand/eye coordination, textural exploration, movement, storytelling, and self-expression, Giggles and Stardust is a space fueled by curiosity, excitement, and a fun-loving spirit.

Giving Children The Gift Of Learning & Imagination

Giggles and Stardust is a subscription-based site offering monthly, weekend or annual passes beginning at only $1.99 per month – making it an ideal gift for your own children or for family members, friends or co-workers with preschoolers in their lives. In addition to subscription-based passes, visitors to the GigglesandStardust.com site can purchase one of several books written and illustrated by Jamie, including           “I Don’t Want To Wear A Diaper Anymore,” “There’s a Jungle in the Back of My House” and “My Friend Sam.” Visitors to the site can also download her new album, “Songs From the House on the Hill” for instantly catchy songs that even a grown-up will love!

Giggles and Stardust subscriptions include:

▪          Themed content that includes activities, puppets, videos, songs, and book readings

▪          Age-appropriate art projects designed for preschoolers

▪          Adventures in which Jamie accompanies her young friends on various outings

▪          Kid-friendly interviews with professionals in their fields discussing topics such as bugs, health, art, music, dance and more

▪          Puppet stories linked to episode themes

▪          Songs and music videos

▪          Book readings

▪          Easy access to such merchandise as clothing and books, with more to come

To check out Jamie’s CD of original songs, visit Apple Music (also available on Pandora, Spotify and YouTube Music). In addition, parents can sign up to receive the Giggles and Stardust newsletter.

Meet Jamie!

Born and raised in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Jamie showed promise as an artist from a very young age, parlaying that talent into a BFA degree from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. After later relocating to Los Angeles, she became a sought-after graphic artist until she began teaching art to children ages 5-11 while also working as a preschool teacher for children ages 14 to 24 months (“Best job I ever had!” she says.).

When COVID forced millions of children (and adults, of course) to learn and work from home, Jamie, her supportive husband Andrew Hoffer, and a talented team of educators, programmers and entertainment industry advisors joined forces to create Giggles and Stardust – a site designed to encourage preschoolers and their families to have fun while learning from everywhere and anywhere around the world. Giggles and Stardust was thoughtfully designed to teach  “these newest humans on our planet that although feeling joy and happiness is wonderful, feelings of sadness, frustration or anxiousness are normal and an important part of what makes us the very special people that we are.”

Commenting on the launch of her new “baby,” Jamie says, “Everything I’ve done throughout my career and personal life – from being a singer-songwriter and artist to mother and preschool teacher – has led me to the creation and launch of GigglesandStardust.com. My goal is to show little ones that they are loved, supported, and important. Here, we sing, we laugh, we ask big questions, we wonder, we create, we love, and we all belong! Let’s help each other grow in confidence, connection, and love. Thank you for joining us. And remember – together, we can make the world a kinder place…one giggle at a time.”

D8te Box was an Added Pleasure for Sarah and Josh

Posted on October 22, 2022 in 2022 Fall Gift Guide

D8te Box was great for Sarah and Josh, my 25-year-old, daughter, and her boyfriend.  They loved all of the Halloween stuff, in the box.  Nothing was seductive, and it was great for 2 young loves.  There was Pumpkin Spice stuff to infuse Rum, Sarah loved it, and plenty of other wonderful products.

This wonderful subscription box can be ordered by the month, 3-month, 6 months, or 1-year subscriptions.  Each longer subscription, the better the price.  For instance, 1 month is $42.99, but 12 months is $39.99 per month.  This is a magical kit.  It’ll help your relationship grow.  Sarah and Josh have been together for over 8 years, and this just makes their relationship stronger.

You can get similar stuff, to the items pictured, in your D8te Box.  There are never the same items, so while the above box is amazing, next months will be different.  It is always wonderful items.

You will love this D8te Box, whether your relationship is new, or well established.  Sarah loved all the Halloween themed products in this month’s box.  She couldn’t get enough of it.  There were so many items, and it included some things I’m jealous I didn’t keep.  But I’m old fashioned, and we wouldn’t have done the box, so I gave it to my daughter, who would.

Wizarding World Loot Crate

Posted on September 1, 2020 in 2020 Fall Gift Guide

The Wizarding World Loot Crate is amazing.  My daughter, 23, loved the surprise she received.  She’s a HUGE Harry Potter fan, so this was right up her alley.  She opened it, as soon as FedEx dropped off the package.  She was so excited to see all the cool stuff.

You can see all the cool stuff you can get, too, by looking above.  These boxes are amazing, with new items every other month!  She loves the wand, and has a display box for it, already.  The shirt fits perfectly, you can pick your size.  And, the other items are just great too.  Don’t want to give everything away, you’ll have to order to see all the cool things you can get.

There’s been epic past crates, as well.  Great products to wear, or travel with.  Something new, every other month, and we must own them all.

At Loot Crate, you can get multiple different crates.  There’s all kinds of films, even a game Crate for Destiny.  That would be loved by my hubby.  The crates could have: comics, household items, wearable products, figures, utility, tumblers, and school products.

My suggestion, is to go subscribe, by picking your favorite show, game, anime, etc.  They are all there.  You will enjoy every last product in your crate.

Crated With Love was so fun on Valentine’s Day

Posted on February 18, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide

I can’t go out much, because I deal with Panic Disorder.  And, well, Valentine’s Day, and all the people, I couldn’t go out.  So, we had a Valentine’s Date at home, with Crated With Love.  It was so special.  We started with the book that came with Crated With Love, so we knew what to do.  Our box was Our Sweetheart Safari.  It was so much fun, and super cute!

The book has challenges in it, so Challenge One was “Our Safari Skills”, Challenge Two:  “Lions, Tigers and Bears”, Challenge Three:  “Jungle River Excursion”, Challenge Four:  “Our Goals Journal”.  These are so cute, and so fun to do with the person you love, for a special day, or any day.  We just picked Valentine’s Day, because my spouse knew I couldn’t be around all those people.

Why a Date Night, you may ask, well here’s the answer found on Crated With Love:

Couples that have dedicated “couple time” at least once a week are 3.5 times more likely to classify their marriage as “very happy” compared to those couples who enjoy less quality time together.

My daughter, age 21, and her boyfriend, age 22, even asked if they could borrow the Crated With Love box, before they became subscribers, to make sure they loved it too.  Well, Saturday was their date night, and they loved it too.

So you have 40 something’s, and 20 something’s that both think Date Night is important!

Fuss-Free Recipes with Dinnerly

Posted on July 9, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

Dinnerly is a dinner, subscription box.  It’s absolutely perfect.  My daughter and I made some fabulous meals, with the food that was sent.  Every week, you can get different foods, and even Vegetarian dishes.  We went with meat dishes though.

We started with the Turkey Burgers, with Green Beans, and roasted tomatoes.  Oh were they ever delicious.  I can still taste them, my mouth is literally watering.  It was super delicious.  We filled the burgers with cheese, and it was great to add to the flavor.  I ate 3, by myself.  We made them small though, and were able to get 8 out of the package.

Then we made Sausage, and this potato salad for my Mother In Law.  She absolutely raved about the sausage.  Thought it was delicious.  Said, “I’ve never tasted so much flavor in Sausage”.  And, the potato Salad, she took home.  Said it was delicious, and wanted to feed it to my father in law.  Who, after trying it, loved it too.

Finally, we had Chicken Breast.  It was so moist and yummy.  I wish I had more.

Dinnerly is inexpensive, and I’ll be ordering a lot, in the future.  It’s got to be the best subscription box I’ve ever belonged to.  You get to pick out your food, and have it delivered to your door.  All you have to do is add the ingredients together, and cook.  And, you always get a side dish.

Dinnerly is Pure Delish!

Every Fisherman’s Dream is the Lucky Tackle Box

Posted on May 22, 2018 in 2018 Father's Day Gift Guide

I love Lucky Tackle Box, or LTB.  It’s got everything in it, that I need, to go fishing, short of the pole.  I love how it’s a monthly box, and I can get it again and again.

With Father’s Day coming, quickly, I needed an idea for my dad.  This hit the spot.  Everything he could want for fishing, all in one place.  And, I ordered it for monthly X3 months.  And, the price is fantastic.  I can’t get over the price, when the value of the items is so much more.  My dad will love his gift.  And, it’ll keep on giving.  He will get the box in June, July, and August.

He’s even getting a free gift, with my order.  Check it out.  Get your order in now.  You only have 1 day left to get June’s Box.  So, make sure you order soon.  You could always get July’s box though.  It’s gonna be great too.  I love the variety of products that come in the Lucky Tackle Box, and even the box itself.  I might sound corny, but who needs a fancy tackle box, when I’ve got everything I need right in the box it was shipped in?

Oh yeah, and I went with the middle box.  It’s fantastic.

You can even order for different types of fish, and get exactly what you need for that style of fishing.
