5 Great Kids Birthday Gift Ideas

If you are having a hard time deciding on what gift you will give to a kid – your child, nephew, niece or godchild on his or her birthday, then you’ve come to the right place! Surely, at the end of this article, you will be able to finally decide on what gift to share.Check out – 5 Great Kids Birthday Gift Ideas.

For kids, birthday gifts aren’t just for their entertainment or use, it is also a representation of your love and attention to them. By giving a gift that you know they will like very much, kids will surely be more motivated and happy. They begin to see that you understand their interests, that you pay attention to them. That is why always think about the gift that you will give as it can greatly benefit the kid in ways that you don’t even realize. And without further ado, here are 5 great gifts for your kid’s birthday.

1.) Books

There are still kids that love to read books!  They aren’t always “glued” to electronics – trust me.  (Ex. Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Warrior Cat series, etc.)  Getting them a fun book will be the best birthday gift. Try choosing a thought provoking book, that is also fun and enjoyable. This way, you will not just be giving them a source of happiness but also guide them into a world of imagination.

2.) Latest Game

Playing is very important for kids, it is still the most effective recreational activity to promote their positive mood and restore their motivation. As long as you can control their playing time and exposure to video games, then getting the latest game as their birthday gift will surely make them happy. (And you can probably play together!)

3.) Stylish and Trendy Clothes

One of the safest and famous birthday gifts are definitely clothes. While they may seem easy and less impactful, a very stylish and trendy set of clothes might just end up as their favorite birthday gift if you get their current tastes right. Today, kids are very easily influenced by their favorite super hero or anime characters, if you get them clothes with their favorite character on it, then they’ll definitely like it. In fact, I bet that once they see it, they will automatically wear it the next time they change clothes.

4.) Shoes

Shoes are very practical birthday gifts, it is a necessity for kids. However, you need to be very careful on what type of shoes you need to get for them. Kids also love to brag about their brand new shoes to their friends, therefore, you need to give them the style that they like. If they are a Golden State Warriors fan, then a Curry shoe must be your gift. If you give them a LeBron or Kyrie instead, then expect it to be stored on the shelf for a very long time as they will most likely never wear it. (Think of it as a prize or trophy.)

5.) Electric Scooters

  1. With the emergence of electric scooters, kids today will not tire themselves from just kicking the ground in order to gain speed in their scooters. If they like to play outdoors with their friends, then getting them an electric scooter with a low top speed will surely make their birthday the best. However, make sure that you buy the safety gear along with the electric scooter to give your kid the protection they need.

Giving Gifts That Benefit The Planet – prAna



This season I’m focusing on finding gifts for my lovely family that will encourage growth, happiness and peace.  That could be as literal as giving a beautiful Amaryllis or interpreted metaphorically as sharing a product that is good for our environment.  I was recently introduced to a clothing line that checks all the boxes, and you too can give gifts that benefit the planet when you chose from – prAna.


More than ever, people just like you and me are seeking ways to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet.  I’ve discovered a great line of clothes that fit the bill –  prAna. The cool clothing line prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that consumers feel great about the things they wear and the items they give.

I decided to take my new Mariette Dress out on my recent Small Business Saturday shopping trip last weekend.



I’m going through that “delightful” time in my life where I could break out in a sweat in the freezing cold. Argh. I was very curious how I would handle this material and, I’m very happy to report, that I felt very comfortable in this sweater dress.  Fabric consists of Organic cotton blend sweater knit, 70% Organic Cotton / 30% Acrylic.

Please check out their website – http://www.prana.com/ –  and see their cool designs.  When you find something to add to your cart do yourself a favor and save 15% off your entire order.  Use this Promo Code:  BLOGF16ANHA

When you get your new clothes share a pic!  I’d love to see what you chose!

A Great Way To Save – Groupon Coupons!


(Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.)

The moon belongs to everyone, the best things in life are free“, sang Frank Sinatra (among many others) and that’s fantastic!  However, it’s very hard to wrap and very difficult to fit under a Christmas tree.  And so it goes, the search for the perfect gift. If your gift-giving list is long, I’ve discovered a great way to save on everything from toys, clothing, appliances – you name it!  It’s Groupon Coupons. Do you know about this? I didn’t! I’m so happy to learn about it, particularly for this time of year. Let’s check it out!

Groupon Coupons can help ease your Thanksgiving journeys by offering great discounts on hotels and travel.  Also, there are coupons for holiday decorating and food options.  A sure-to-please gift is a lovely bouquet (you don’t have to worry if it “fits”). From You Flowers has great deals right now. This would also be a very nice gift to give to yourself!

Something that most of us don’t think of, until something falls apart, is home maintenance. This can be tricky for those that either aren’t handy with tools, don’t have access to tools or aren’t physically able to handle the heavy lifting.  Angie’s List now offers FREE membership through Groupon Coupons. You can give the gift of a “Handy Man” this season.  That’s a pretty great gift!  Click here for your deal.

Holiday shopping just got a whole lot easier and better with this find. Check out Groupon Coupons and I’m sure you’ll find something wonderful for everyone on your list.  Happy Holidays!



No Need To Pay Full Price When You Use Groupon

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.



There’s no reason to pay full-price for your personal care and upkeep when you use Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons!  As a matter of fact, I found my current hairstylist through Groupon and… due to my loyalty, he has kept my rate the same.  (It helped that I’ve sent a few friends his way toowink.)

Just about every personal care service is listed at Groupon.  You can find health care providers that will help keep you well on the inside, along with professionals providing services to help you put your best face, and body, in the spotlight.

Groupon is also a great place to find gifts for those special in your life.  (We are encroaching on a major “gift giving” season therefore I recommend you search for deals so that you can spread the joy – and your money – farther.)  And once you purchase a Groupon don’t forget about it!  Most have an expiration date so how about getting a folder (I bet you can find a deal for one at Groupon) and keep your printed coupons well organized.folder

If you’ve never visited the Groupon site, don’t be afraid, it’s easy to navigate. All you do is enter your city/state and look for deals in your area.  They also provide great prices on items you can purchase on-line.  It’s a win-win!  Enjoy your shopping and be proud of yourself for saving some money with the help of Groupon.

Each candle is 2 ounces of scented soy wax that will burn for about 20 hours.  The wicks are made of cotton, so no worries of metal burning in your wick.  (Have you seen that in some candles?  If not, look closer the next time you purchase a candle.  Some companies actually have a thin piece of metal in the wicks – burning metal in your house?!
