Love and Treasure Holiday Gift Guide 2019

Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol for Kids for Immune Support

First of all, can I just take a moment and give you SQUEEEEEZY holiday hug? Pretty please?


Thanks! That felt good. 😉


Friends, OMG, we’ve made it to the end of the year! What an absolute blessing it is!


And I don’t know about you, but it seems like I’ve been waiting for 2020 for YEARS (if you know what I mean) and it’s literally right around the corner!


This will probably be my favorite transition from one year to another. Maybe even more than how we thought we had to party back in 1999 😉 and we lived to get to the year 2000 without the Y2K (whatever that was 😉 ). Going from this decade to the next decade will be my favorite decade transition. For sure.


I can just feel that 2020 will be our year. SOOOO many positive things will come for us. It’s like a fresh breeze. A year where we say WOW… life is starting to look up again… and I can’t wait for it to get here.


HOWEVER,  before we get to the first new year I’ve been this eager for, we have to experience my favorite holiday CHRISTMAS!!!


And I know I have to share this holiday with a whole bunch of people whose favorite holiday is Christmas, too. Including, you probably. 🙂


So, without further ado, I bring to you, the 2019 Love and Treasure Holiday Gift Guide!

So you’re probably mentally asking me: “What product do you recommend? What are your Amazon favorites? 


To which I’ll respond,  “Not so faaaaast.!” 🙂


Look around where you are right now, you’re probably more blessed with more stuff than you could have ever imagined for yourself. And with more stuff than you probably know what to do with. So you really don’t NEED more stuff for the sake of stuff, you need what I would call the intangibles.


Before we go on any further, let me just say that: As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.


The Intangible Gifts


These gifts are gifts that you should give yourself if you haven’t done so already.


  1. Self- Respect
  2. Knowing That You’re Stronger Than You Think You Are
  3. The Belief in One’s Self and One’s Dreams


There is more than meets the eye with these gifts, so I want to help you unpack/unwrap them.


Gift #1: Self- Respect

You have wishes. 


But there comes a point in time when even our best intentions don’t work with other people.


When we are the ones putting most of the effort in a relationship– and who at the end, might be left feeling the most depleted.


You don’t owe people who don’t give much in return your constant wishin’ and hopin’ that SOMETHING will change. That they’ll change. That they’ll be responsive to all this love that you’ve been showering them with.


Because how old are they?


You’ve waited for YEARS already, a decade or multiple decades even and they STILL haven’t changed. So how’s your infinite amount of patience working out for you?


For how many MORE years or decades will you be pressing the break on your happiness, fulfillment or value?


(I know, you might be getting teary just thinking about how unfruitful your patience toward that person has been).


SO STOP DELAYING your joy! Have some self-respect! You’re worthy of SO much more than their scraps.


And guess what? When you respect yourself and you exude self-respect… more positive things come your way. 


If you’re still holding on to the idea that they hold the love, nurturing, care, concern, protecting that you’re lacking… sorry to say this but you’re wrong. 


Would it be nice to have it? Yeah. It’s a nice-to-have. It’s not a must-have.


You’re whole no matter how broken you feel.

You’re lovable and loving.

You’re nurturing and worthy of being nurtured.

You’re caring and deserve care from others.

You concern other people because they love you..

You’re protective and you are being protected every step of the way. 


You’re WHOLE.


Now it’s just a matter of you deciding RIGHT NOW that you’re taking your power back. 


Did those people deserve to hold YOUR power for just a second?




“Giving away your power is not the price you should pay for being loved.”


By that logic, weak people would be VERY loved… and is that the case? Not necessarily. And most often not.


You don’t pay for love with your power.


“Love cannot be bought. With money or with anything other than love. And even then, it’s an equal exchange… not a purchase.” 


And I hate to break it to you, but where do these people put the power that you gave them?

  • Is it on a throne they adore every day? 
  • Is it on a glass display where they exhibit all the things they love and treasure? 
  • Or is it on their hypothetical floor all dusty and ignored?


For most of you, the answer is on the floor or in a box they have hidden away because they may feel embarrassed, ashamed or cheapened to even admit that they love or admire you.


Loving you should not be something that should be associated with shame. Loving you should be something that they’re proud of.


So take back the power you gave them and put it back where it belongs, in the courage compartment of your heart. Honor your power much more than you ever have knowing that once again you’re whole… not because someone gave you something, but because you’ve taken back what was always rightfully yours- your power. 


Gift #2: Knowing That You’re Stronger Than You Think You Are


  • What difficult things did you go through this year? This month? Today?


  • Did you feel under the weather recently?


  • Did you have a big project that you didn’t think you could complete?


  • But you’re still here, aren’t you?


And you probably have a positive project, a goal or an intention to do something but you haven’t reached the finish line yet… and at times, you wonder if you ever will. That’s normal. You worry about your stamina because this goal matters to you.


But you’ve accomplished GREAT things. Hard things. Things that took a lot of work. And frankly, you’ve accomplished things that felt impossible. But you did it!


You have ALSO gone through some very, VERY trying times. Times that you thought you would never recover from, but thank goodness for Time and how it’s managed to heal most wounds almost most of the way.


No matter if you experienced struggles on your way up or your way down, you’re still here to tell the story. 🙂


Gift #3: The Belief In One’s Self and One’s Dreams


There is NO better gift you can give yourself when embarking on a new project than the BELIEF in yourself that you can achieve it.


Yes, doubt may be present, because it’s sneaky and it can creep in… but doubt should be like a mouse. The belief in yourself should weigh and take the space of an elephant.


If you’re not careful, the mouse/doubt can outsmart your belief in yourself and ultimately your goal and you don’t want something as pesky as your doubt to triumph and rob you of things that can bring you some of the greatest happiness in your life.


Want To Know What ACTUALLY Gives You The Greatest Happiness?


Did you know that the thing that brings us the most happiness is not things, or accomplishments, or even money?


Nope, it’s not.


It’s making progress on your goals and personal projects.


Not too long ago someone told me they don’t have personal projects. 


Personally, I can’t even imagine myself without personal projects. I don’t know who I’d be or where my life would be going if I didn’t have personal projects. I know that we’re enough even when we don’t do anything… but if making progress is what gives us happiness… I wanna make progress.


So whether you have goals and personal projects that you’re so hooked on that they make your life exciting or whether you don’t have any, for the last few days of this year and in this upcoming year, work on the goal that would give YOU THE MOST JOY to accomplish it. And believe in yourself and your ability to complete it. It’s in your heart for a reason. Honor that reason. Be that instrument that makes it come true.


These Gifts Are Not Just For You


The beauty about these intangible gifts is that you can and should give them to others, as well.


  1. Respect Others
  2. See The Strength In Others
  3. Believe In Other People’s Dreams and Support Them


Seen this way,  these gifts are very self-explanatory. And people who receive them from you not only during this Holiday Season but throughout the whole year will appreciate receiving them very much. 🙂


The Tangible Gifts


Before I share with you what tangible gifts, I recommend for the people in your life, I want to say 5 things:


  1. Give to the people you genuinely want to give to. 
    • Don’t feel obliged to give because they gave you something or they expect something from you. 
    • The best gifts emanate from a POSITIVE intention in the heart and that’s the intention you should gift from.
  2. Don’t feel bad if your budget doesn’t allow you to buy these or other things. 
    • I have personally worked on my budget a lot this year and KNOW that paying off any debt no matter how big or how small feels much better than living beyond your means. 
    • So if what I share with you is out of your league for now, don’t worry, these things and most likely better things will be available for you when the right time for shopping comes.
    • And the best gift you can give isn’t a material possession, it’s your love and presence.
  3. I share this list as a way to inspire you on what to get people. 
    • I know that the people in your life are different than the people in mine…and only you know what is best for them. So keep them in mind as you shop for them.
  4. Last but not least, I want to repeat, “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.”
    • This means that if you make a purchase using my link, that you can access by clicking the name of each item, I’ll get a small commission without any additional cost to you.
    • And that is a way that you keep this blog going.
  5. This post is not sponsored, I’ve purchased these items with my own money and enjoyed them so much that now I want to share them with you.


Gifts For Kids

After all, they’re whom we celebrate Christmas the most for, right?


They’re our muse and inspiration.


Kids need lots of things…  lots of love, lots of attention, lots of snacks and lots of batteries.


EBL 24 Sets Rechargeable Batteries (AA 2800mAh 12 Counts and AAA 1100mAh 12 Counts)


So why not get them batteries for their new toys and to revive their old toys. I love using rechargeable batteries because we all know that non-rechargeable batteries perish way too fast. I like this kit because it includes AA batteries and AAA batteries. The quality is great… and they’re honestly my favorite batteries to use. Having them, using them, recharging them brings life into the things in my home and that makes my family and I happy.




BONAI LCD Battery Charger for C D AA AAA 9V Ni-MH Ni-CD Rechargeable Batteries with  4 C Rechargeable Cells (5000mAh)


If we’re going to invest in rechargeable batteries, we need something to charge them with. This is a good charger.


Keep in mind that even though batteries and chargers are a simple thing they’re an extremely practical thing.


Anybody would appreciate batteries because I don’t know of anybody who’s swimming in extra batteries just ready to be used. 


On the contrary, it seems like we can never have enough batteries.


So, children and parents (especially new parents who haven’t come to the full realization of just how needed batteries are) would appreciate a gift like this.




For The Kids Barely Learning Their ABC’s


Super Why ABC Game

This game is a really cute game to help kids with their early reading skills and spelling skills. 


This game helps in establishing a solid literacy foundation. Specifically, it helps with:

  • Identifying letters
  • Rhyming
  • Correcting silly sentences and
  • Learning how to read basic words


Kids as young as 3 can enjoy it and so can kids who already know how to read and have that extra advantage over their younger siblings in winning the game. 😉


Games, of course, help with social skills like turn-taking.


And this particular game includes 4 Super Why character finger puppets to develop language and their imagination even further.


The characters are: 

  • Alpha Pig with Alphabet Power
  • Wonder Red with Word Power
  • Princess Presto with Spelling Power and 
  • Super Why with the Power to Read!



For Kids Who Love Numbers, Math or are a Gifted Student

Math for Love Tiny Polka Dot


You know how there are games that come with one single set of rules and that’s how you play the game.


This game is not that.


On the contrary, out of the box, this simple, small, cute and colorful stack of cards can allow your kids (and you) to play 16 different math games.


BUT, you guessed it, wait, there’s more!


You can invent your OWN games and adapt these cards to your child. 




I don’t know about you but I had heard of and can’t think of a physical game that does this. If you can leave it in the comments below.


Anyway, this very useful game that a mathematician created:

  • Promotes a sense of comfort and love in seeing numbers.
  • Kids will learn:
    • Counting
    • Math Calculations
    • Logic
    • Numeracy
    • How to strengthen their memory
    • And different ways of representing numbers.


It’s a delight to play with your kids and make them make the math connections right in front of your own eyes. 


And just so you know it’s not just me who thinks this. This game has won several awards:


  • Brain Child” award from Tilliwig Toy and Media Awards
  • Creative Child Game of the Year and 
  • the coveted National Parenting Center Seal of Approval!


And in case you’re wondering who could play: 

  • 1-6 players can play at a time.
  • It’s recommended for ages: 3-8+
  • And each game is approximately 5-15 minutes.




For The Little Artist (Or Even Some Big Artists)


Crayola Light Up Tracing Pad


This light pad comes in different presentations and colors, making you seem even more thoughtful when you use your knowledge of the recipient to choose the appropriate pack.


The kit comes with:

  • 1 portable tracing pad with LED lights that offer an evenly lit surface.
  • 1 graphite pencil
  • 12 short colored pencils
  • 10 tracing sheets
  • 10 blank sheets


And just a fair warning, you will need 3 AA batteries, so you might want to buy the batteries I recommended above. 😉


Kids between 6-10 would enjoy this gift the most.

However, there are crafters who use this to. For example, quilt makers like this to trace their quilting patterns. 


And this particular collection offers kids more than 100 image templates online that they can download for free. 




For People Who Wish For Health 


Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide by Anthony William


Are you suffering from a health condition?

Is someone you love suffering from a health issue?


The healing journey doesn’t have to start once someone discovers a “cure” Heaven knows when. It can start TODAY. 


This is one of those things that SEEMS too good to be true but isn’t. 


I, along with millions of people worldwide (as the title of this book says) have used this, and other Medical Medium books to heal. It’s not that we’re “special” and that we are the exception. On the contrary, we’re the rule. And health is everybody’s birthright. You or your loved ones suffering from any condition CAN heal. I know it’s a bold statement… and I TRULY don’t say it lightly. And it all starts with whether or not you believe you can heal. 


Do you believe you can heal?


Really? Are you willing to have enough faith in your potential healing that you’re willing to BUY this book and do as much of what it says as you can?


Or if your health is perfect, are you able to have enough faith, love and care for your sick loved one to share this book with them?


I strongly believe you can be a hero for a family member and their immediate family. 


Look, I get it that a book is not the sexiest gift. But the gift of LIFE? There’s nothing like it and YOU can be the reason why someone lives longer and better. 


Not sharing this book would be wrong. I know that if money is tight, all you might be able to do is simply mention the book to them so that they can buy it. But at least you would have done your job. 


Also, if you have family members that don’t like to read (sadly)… then you might buy them the audiobook so that you increase the odds of them getting the book and applying the information. 


If you’ve lost any family members to health conditions recently you know how sad it is to think of them and realize that they’re no longer with us. 


It’s a blessing to know that a book like this could potentially help our loved ones when they need it the most.




Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol – 4 Fl Oz


You can believe in something that seems like a trend but isn’t, like the Medical Medium book above OR you can believe in something that’s been tried and true for over 124 YEARS which equals to one and one-quarter century … like silver hydrosol.


I know that drinking silver nanoparticles seems wild… if you’ve never had them. But once you do, you’ll be hooked on having dropperfuls often because it helps keep your insides healthy.


If sovereign silver also seems like a foreign concept, let me share 4 things:


  1. It maintains, sustains and supports your immune system.
  2. It only has two ingredients: silver and purified water.
  3. Silver can be found in:
    1. Whole grains
    2. Mushrooms
    3. Mammalian milk
    4. water
  4. Before antibiotics, doctors preferred to use colloidal silver.



I love it so much that I buy the kid version for my kids. 

The kid version Sovereign Silver looks like this: 

And don’t worry, your kids can drink it easily because it mostly tastes like water.


Hey, you can even buy it for your pets. 


This is one of those things that I suggest you buy in the biggest size you can afford. You’ll be going through bottles anyway.


For People Who Have Everything


These people are the hardest people to buy for. They’re the people who could go to the store right now… any store… and buy themselves pretty much anything they want. 


So when we gift them something nothing ever seems like enough. 


And it probably isn’t… LOL… but my goal with these people in my life is to give them the most “extra” thing I can find.



Not too long ago, I bought a Handmade Italian Cream Soda for the first time to share with my child (I know, I’m late to the party). And it was SO good, I had to get additional Italian Cream Sodas right after we finished those for everyone in my family. 


It was so decadent and good that I actually was okay with letting my kids have soda for the first time in years. Up until that point, they had never had soda before. And this particular soda was a club soda with no additional flavors or coloring, so it was even better.


It was SOOO yummy that I knew it couldn’t be the LAST time I tried it, so all of a sudden it dawned on me that I could recreate it.

And thankfully, I had noticed what they used to make the soda… and I turned to Amazon to see if they sold the syrup that was necessary and behold Amazon does sell it!


Gotta LOVE Amazon! 🙂


To make Italian sodas you can use a Torani Syrup.


The flavor that we liked best as a family was the cheesecake flavor. 

Yes, real cheesecake is yummy and all, but that’s NOT the reason why I liked this flavor so much because I kid you not, the cheesecake syrup doesn’t taste like cheesecake (at all, in my opinion). Rather, it tastes like coconut and I LOVE coconut.


But if you’re not a coconut fan, there are many flavors to choose from. 


So you could gift this syrup to them along with the recipe or even all of the ingredients to make themselves Handmade Italian Sodas… OR you can give it all by itself.


If you know that the person you want to gift it to loves coffee… these syrups can also be used to add this flavor… because guess what? Places like Starbucks use these syrups.


If you’re a coffee drinker, perhaps a Hazelnut flavor would appeal to you for your coffee. 


But so far, the cheesecake flavor is the winner, in my book.


And just so you know, you get a better deal if you buy the packs of several bottles instead of paying for each individual bottle. And according to some Amazon answers to customer questions, it’s possible, upon request, that the seller can create a bundle of the flavors that you like. That’s pretty cool, right?


So you’re probably wondering… how to make an Italian Cream Soda. Usually, I only like to spoil my immediate and extended family with my favorite recipes (especially my most recent ones)… and you’ll probably think that I don’t want to share the recipe, but you’d be wrong because I will share it with you because you are like family to me. 🙂


The recipe for the Italian Cream Soda is


The Contentment Journal

Not to be mean or anything but often, the people who have the most appreciate what they have the least.


And as long as you’re not content with what you have- your life will continue to feel empty, meaningless, joyless, a constant worry, stressful and like a never-ending road trip on a hamster wheel.


So this journal can be a good thing for them (or for anybody) who would benefit from being more appreciative of all the blessings they have.




For The Ladies In Your Life

YALUXE Genuine Leather Wallet Women’s RFID Blocking Large Capacity Luxury Wax Clutch Multi Card Organizer

As long as you don’t have a whole bunch of “wallet snobs” in your life that are only content with the latest and greatest wallet from Gucci, Prada or Louis Vuitton… then this wallet can be beneficial.


One caveat, though… it’s leather, so some people would be opposed to it, like the vegans in your life.


However, it has more than enough space for all of your cards, money, change and ids.


And it can remain as pretty as the day you bought it if you keep it in the pouch it comes in or in another one in your bag.



Rose Quartz Roller and Gua Sha Beauty Tool

This is a gift you might eye, but wouldn’t really think to get for yourself…or you’ll easily excuse it as a want instead of a need.


But you should get it for yourself if you’re reading this– because you’re worth it.


But so are the ladies in your life.


This rose quartz roller can massage your face and depuff it. 


It can help with anti-aging. It improves circulation.


But overall, it’s just relaxing. Some people use the roller at room-temperature, others keep it in the refrigerator so that it provides a cooling effect.


My Newest Favorite Gadget As Of Late


Not too long ago, I bought what I would say is my newest favorite gadget.


It’s something simple, very utilitarian but super cool: It’s a Keypad Lever Door Lock. 


Several years ago, I saw a YouTuber who had a keyless garage door lock and I thought it would be a great idea to have something like that.


But I knew it was a want instead of a need. However, not too long ago, the handle on the door that leads to my garage stopped working as it should. I promise it was not me who broke it. 🙂


And although I was not in the market for buying a door handle, I knew it had become a need. So I looked, and looked and looked until I found this one: 


Kwikset SmartCode 955 Keypad Electronic Lever Door Lock Deadbolt Alternative with Pembroke Door Handle Lever Featuring SmartKey Security in Satin Nickel

It was more expensive than I thought I would be and think it should be… but I had to get it.


And as soon as I saw it installed and used it for the first time I realized that not only had I replaced a malfunctioning door handle, but I had upgraded the value of the home.


It’s so easy to use. 


It’s really a joy. It automatically locks the door if you want it to… but it gives you the peace of mind that you don’t have to worry about not having a key because you know the code.


This model doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that some people may want, but I love this one SO much that I’d love to buy one down the line for my home office… and a similar one for my main door.


My family enjoys using it. It’s so convenient for any one of us to be able to open the door when we get home. It makes us all more proactive and less worried…. And who couldn’t use more of that in their lives?


For The Techies Who Love Their Phone

And that includes pretty much everybody, right?


One of the best purchases I’ve made that is SUPER practical is this cable and phone charger.


Confession time! Do you scroll through your phone before bed?


How many times have you finally managed to pop into bed and then, just when you’re about to relax by scrolling your phone, or by reading a Kindle book on your phone, all of a sudden you realize that your phone battery is almost completely drained?


Ugh! Isn’t that awful? There you are, trying to relax and not being able to relax the way you wanna relax is not relaxing AT ALL.


BUT enter the:


iPhone Charger, Anker Powerline 6ft Lightning Cable



The best feature about this cable is that it’s long, and you can be in bed and face away from where you plugged it in or toward it and STILL be able to comfortably scroll through your phone. Then, when you get sleepy, you can just leave it on your nightstand, and presto! Your phone will be charged by the time you wake up.


It is compatible with iPhone 

  • 11
  • XS and  XS Max
  • XR 
  • X
  • 8 and 8 Plus
  • 7 and 7 Plus
  • 6 and 6 Plus
  • 5s
  • iPad and more


It is also MFI certified, so you can rest easy knowing it’s a high-quality electric product.


USB C Wall Charger, Anker 30W 2 Port Type C Charger with 18W Power Delivery, Powerport PD 2 with Foldable Plug

One of the things we love most about our phones is having plenty of battery juice to do all the things we want to do throughout the day. 


And this charger provides the fastest charging that I’ve experienced. And while no, I don’t have many chargers to compare speeds, the speed at which this particular charger charges is very satisfactory to me. 


If you’re okay with using the chargers your devices came with, you’ll be more than happy using this charger because this charger charges faster than the original chargers.


This charger is compatible with:

  • iPad Pro
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone Pro
  • iPhone Max
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • Pixel
  • Galaxy and more

In case you need this charger on the go, the plug portion of the charger folds in to make it even more compact.


And this charger is safe to use with your devices.




For The People Who Use Too Much Tech And Need To Protect Their Eyes


Most of us would fall under this category, as well.


MEETSUN Blue Light Blocking Glasses, Computer Reading Glasses UV400 Transparent Lens

If you’re on the computer a little more than your doctor would recommend if they only knew how many hours you’re in front of a computer or phone… then these glasses are great for you and for everybody else in your life that’s in the same boat. 


These glasses are comfortable and protect your eyes from the harsh blue light from your devices.


If someone you know is writing a book, working on a big project, working on their taxes, or is an online content creator, these glasses can be even more beneficial for them.


They’re even good for night owls who watch a bit too much TV at night, too.


Doctors have said that people who are exposed to too much blue light suffer eye damage, vision, and even disruption in sleep patterns. So if you can help a loved one preserve these things, that would be a great gift. 🙂


For The Cooks Who Want To Be More Healthy


Vitamix A3500

OMG! If you really want a gift for yourself or want to spoil someone who loves food and doesn’t mind spending some time in the kitchen, look no further than the Vitamix A3500.


It’s the best blender I’ve ever used.


When my old blender couldn’t even blend watermelon, I knew it was time to upgrade to a blender that could make the juices, smoothies, soups, banana nice creams, sorbets and non-dairy milks I needed. 


This blender doesn’t disappoint. It’s strong enough to make a celery juice. 



  • awesome enough that it makes sorbets that are cold and don’t spill down even if you turn the blender container upside-down, 
  • forward-thinking enough that it makes hot soups for you without using the stove and
  • helpful enough that it practically washes itself.  


I can’t think of anything else to ask of a blender. I love the darn thing!


Pro Quality Nut Milk Bag

If you want to make celery juice or nut milk, oat milk, nut milk… you do need one thing along with your blender and that is a nut bag. 



  • Reusable
  • Commercial food grade
  • BPA-Free
  • Ultra-fine mesh nylon
  • 12 inches x 12 inches which is perfect to put over a pitcher and squeeze the bag to squeeze out the juice or milk you made.


Use, it wash it and store it so that it’s available to you the next time you need it.




Date Lady Organic Barhi Dates | Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-free & Kosher (1 Bag)

If you’re looking to gift someone the softest dates I’ve ever tried, look no further. 


They’re high-quality and the total opposite of the dry, hard and old dates you may have tried.


You’ll be able to do many recipes with dates! (By the way, it’s also a nice gift for people who have everything).


Rozotti Silicone Baking Mat Bundle (6-Piece Set) 

You know how a lot of people are obsessed with the air fryers? 


Well, I’m not one of them because even though I have an air fryer I prefer using these non-stick and heat-resistant mats.


It allows you to bake potatoes without using oil (and isn’t that the reason why most people buy or want an air fryer in the first place?)


It also allows bakers to reduce the amount of parchment paper they use to bake cookies. 


PLUS, you have the added advantage of being able to wash your cooking sheet in seconds, because they’ll hardly get dirty with these mats.


You’ll also be helping the environment because you won’t use parchment paper or aluminum foil (which by the way isn’t healthy for you). 


And in case you’re wondering these mats ARE dishwasher safe… but personally, I hand-wash them (even though I don’t love hand-washing)… because they’re very easy to clean.


This kit contains:

  • 2 half sheets
  • 2 quarter sheets
  • A silicone baking brush
  • A silicone baking spatula


So if you have a baker or someone who’s wanting to reduce their consumption of oils… this could be an innovative gift that will come in super handy.


A Paprika Subscription For Your Computer


You know those bookmarks/shortcuts that you can put on your Chrome web browser for easy access?


Want to know what the first one listed on my browser is?


The Paprika Save Recipe link that I installed which allows me to save practically ANY recipe that I see online in my recipe collection. 


You can find more about the Paprika App by visiting this page.


Every time I think about how I can clip almost any recipe online and have it go to an app that allows me to cross off the items I’ve added to a recipe simply by tapping on the screen, my mind is blown, again and again.


So let me just say it here and now… out of ALL the apps, I think that what Paprika is able to do is the most revolutionary. So every. single. time. I think of what app to recommend to people, Paprika is the app I think of.


And Paprika has ALSO been the app I have gifted the most. 


A Paprika Subscription For Phone


If you spot a recipe on the web, you can use the share button to send it to your Paprika App. The share button is the rectangle with an arrow pointing up. 


I will purposely not do the Paprika app justice so that you PLEASE. PUUUHHHLEASE go and check it out for yourself. It’s that great. Even if you cook/bake or don’t cook/bake… if there’s a treasure box where your mom’s or grandma’s most treasured recipes should go, it’s this app. 


It’s like a safe. No matter what happens to your home… those recipes that have been the spice of life on dates, birthdays, holidays or meals where a loving family was gathered around a table deserve to be preserved.


For The Memory Keepers


SD Card Reader, Zedela USB 3.0 Card Reader, 7 in 1 Adapter USB Card Reader/Writer (5Gbps)

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been taking photos for the past 20+ years, and in that time, the technology has changed a bit. 


And as great as technology is, one of the most annoying things about it, if I’m being honest, is that as it innovates, it forces you to think of how to pull some of your treasures into the new age. 


While it can be cool to do so… it’s also…tedious… but this adapter is very handy to take all the camera memory cards where you have pictures and extract all your photos and videos from them so that you can continue to enjoy them. 


It reads:

  • Micro SD
  • SDXC
  • CF
  • SD
  • SDHC
  • MS
  • XD
  • T-flash
  • MMC Camera Memory Card


It’s compatible with:

  • Mac OS
  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Chrome


Miss Freddy’s Backup Bootcamp Course


I know that one of the greatest worries that you and many of your loved ones have is having a less than perfect way of saving your photos.


Well, you do save them alright… but all over the place. 


So if I were to tell you that you would win ten million dollars if you showed me all the pictures you took in June 3 years ago on ALL of your devices you would probably be in a panic knowing that you don’t have all those pictures in one consolidated place… and that you would lose out on all of that money. 


But if you took Miss Freddy’s Backup Bootcamp course you would be able to get all of your photos together in the span of about 1 week… depending of course on how many photos and videos you’ve taken and how many different devices you’ve had and how able you are of extracting the photos from all of your devices.


Miss Freddy walks you through each process step by step… and teaches you how to maintain this system.


So if this is something that would benefit you, don’t you think it could benefit others in your life? Answer: Of course it would!


Project Life App

One of my other favorite apps because it’s so innovative and because I love the company so much is the Project Life app. 


Did you know that you can create scrapbooks in the palm of your hand, order them as photo books or order the scrapbooks layout for 12x 12 prints (or other sizes) and have them shipped to your doorstep?


Well now you know.


The app itself is free (so download it right now)… and start playing with the card kits you get for free. If you fall in love with a card kit you don’t own yet, you can own it for fairly inexpensively. 


It’s a great app. 


Project Life Notebooks

As I said, I love Project Life as a company, and other than the app, my 2nd favorite item of theirs are the notebooks.


They’re pretty, practical and are great gifts for teachers, teens, or anybody who needs to jot down their ideas or to-dos often.


Coolest Stocking Stuffers


Crystal Mineral Deodorant Stick, Unscented, 4.25 oz.

It’s utilitarian. 

It’s a conversation piece


Even if the person you gift this to thinks they need something stronger… after you use this for a while… the bacteria that makes your pits smell will hardly make their presence so you won’t smell.


Alvera All Natural Roll-on Deodorant Aloe and Almonds – 3 Oz, 3 Fluid Ounce

This deodorant is ideal if you have someone in your life that loves almonds


Mountain Falls Hypoallergenic Tear-Free Baby Shampoo, with Natural Lavender and Chamomile

This shampoo smells so yummy that you can use it as a stocking stuffer for children or adults.


It’s 15 ounces of goodness that you’ll want to replenish right away once the bottle starts getting low. 


One More Thing About The Tangible and Intangible Gifts


As we go through the Holiday Season, remember to strike a balance between enjoying and giving tangible and intangible gifts.


Both compensate one another nicely.


But if you have to choose one over the other, pick the intangible gifts because the gifts to the soul will be with us forever. The tangible gifts won’t. 


What About You?

What is a gift that you would recommend? What type of person is it best suited for?


If you don’t have a suggestion, what was the gift from the list above that most intrigues you or that you’d like to buy for yourself or others? 


Or if you prefer, share with us, what intangible gift do you feel would be great to gift to others and why?


Leave your comment below. I can’t WAIT to read it! 🙂


In the meantime, Happy Holidays, and may your days be magical.
