Superhero Raincoats for Boys

OK. I have a 5-yr-old boy. So, this is super exciting in my own home. If you have a boy and haven't seen these yet, you are going to LOVE them! I'm probably a little more excited than I should be. And although my son does want one, I probably want to see him with this a little more. He is going to rock this raincoat and definitely stand out! There are Batman raincoats with the cape and Superman raincoats with the cape. I absolutely adore these and your son or nephew or any little boy is sure to love it, too. You won't go wrong here. Check them out. So darn perfect and cute!

Super Super Hot for Christmas 2013 - Loom Bands!!

Oh my, I think I see loom bands in my sleep! My girls, who are preteen, are completely obsessed with these and so are their friends.  From elementary to high school, kids are covered in these bracelets and can not get enough.

If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer or just a great gift for a girl from ages 8 - 16yrs, loom bands are a very safe bet.  They love making these bracelets!  They make bracelets full of their favorite colors, friendship bracelets, showing colors of their favorite team, etc. 

It's a sure win. They make a great side gift. Here are some to get you started.

Neon Colored Beats are Super Hot!

If you are looking for something that will make your pre-teen, teenager, or young adult VERY, OVER-THE-TOP happy for any gift-giving occasion....neon Beats are a sure hit.  Everyone wants these. Not everyone can afford these.  My pre-teen and teen have been hounding me for these for a while.  But still going strong even this holiday season. 

They are pretty pricey, but if price is not a barrier, this is the way to go to get the one gift they will be bragging about and talking about for a while to come.  This is THE ONE!  Get it in their favorite color, black or one of the super hot neon colors.  Neon blue is my favorite.  But my girls prefer the blue and the green. 

The popularity of Beats is funny to me.  It wasn't too long ago that my kids found headphones like these (but not as cool...I admit) in my things and thought they were ancient and they made jokes about my age.  Whose laughing now?!?!?!

I am including some neon Beats below and also some of the basic colors.  After all, you know your gift-recipient better than I do.  So you will know what they would truly love. **For some reason the Beats in the Neon colors would not all display properly. But if you click on the pink, you will find the others. sorry!

One Direction Products are Super Hot with Teens and Preteens

If you have girls who are teens or preteens, One Direction Products are the way to go when looking for a gift that she will love. 

I have two daughters, one teen and one preteen.  They are crazy about 1D and have the wristbands, posters, notebooks and clothing to prove it.  They still feel like they don't have enough!!

So, if you are looking for the hot gift to get right now, this would definitely work.  Here are just a few of my daughters' recommended must-haves.   But, really, you can't go wrong. :)

What's Hot Now? Summer!

The kids will be out for summer in a matter of weeks.  Are you ready for it? 

If you are anything like me, you start the summer off strong and then after a month or two goes by, you will begin to hear the usual cries of "I'm bored".  Ugh! 

Well, this summer I am going to be armed with a few tricks up my sleeve! 

I have a few trips and things to do planned.  But I also plan to buy each of my girls a journal/scrapbook to make sure they have memories to last a lifetime.  It should also keep them busy on the days we aren't doing anything special.  And, best of all, they will remember what they did throughout the summer.  My own kids seem to forget everything once faced with the daunting question of "what did you do over the summer?".  Do your kids suddenly forget everything, too?

Here are a few of the nicer journals I found for my own girls.  Maybe they will be a source of inspiration for you. My own favorite is the blue travelers journal. It is quite nice.

What's Hot? Teachers!



This week we are going a bit off of the beaten path and remember to honor our teachers.  Did you know that Teacher Appreciation is coming in May?  Are you ready to spoil your child's teacher?

This is very important.  You don't want your child to be one of the few in the class who don't bother with a gift during this special week.  Believe me, whether they admit it or not, teachers know which children bring gifts. 

There are many thoughtful things that you can do for that special teacher that she or he will remember for a very long time.  You can find great ideas at Teacher Appreciation Week 2012

I do want to mention that one thing I hear from many teachers.  No apples!  No apple figurines or other apple gifts.  This is not a favorite.  And poor teachers end up with so many apple gifts whether they like it or not.

Show the World What You Love

You have seen them, I am sure.  The I Heart Hoodies all over town.  People love them.  They are a cute and clever way to show the world what you love.  Or maybe WHO you love.  I like the new use in sports....for example, "I heart #4".  You can get them in your child's team colors or your favorite team colors in general and they make a cute statement about what you like...or even love.

What makes these hoodies special now?  Well, I found a site that has the different, more girly font above.  Why settle for the ordinary when you can stand out a little?  Find these at I Heart Hoodies.  I did look around at a couple of sites and find these prices the best.  There is no minimum and you get a discount when you buy 4 or more!
