Gifting Ideas for You from Me!

Six Fun Gift Ideas for the whole Family

My thanks to all the brands showcased in this gift guide for sending me complimentary items for inclusion in my gift guide. No other compensation was given, however, I am using affiliate links. That means I may receive a small commission if you make a purchase from those links. Thank you. All opinions are my own. 

Sure, the weather outside is frightful (Buffalo, NY. we are rooting for all of you!), but do you want every member of your family to think you’re delightful? Give the gift of Snow Cones! 

About Hawaiian Shaved Ice Home Pro Shaver Shaved Ice Machine:

Hawaiian Shaved Ice Home Pro Shaved Ice and Party Set

Snow cones in winter, you ask? Yes! You’ll be crowned most fun by old and young alike if you give this Hawaiian Shaved Ice HomePro shaver set, because I’ve never met a person who doesn’t like this tasty treat. Snow cones transport us back to our childhood, and can help us remember warm sunny days making it the perfect gift for families, including your own! I plan on setting up a holiday party snow cone bar the day after Thanksgiving. 

Hawaiian Shaved Ice Home Pro Machine and ice Cups

I’ll put the ice cups in the freezer the night before and set out the flavored syrups: Cherry, Cotton Candy and Pina Colada and all the party essentials, which are available on the Hawaiian Shaved Ice website in supplies and accessories and just like that, we’re having a snow cone party! I think it will be loads of light hearted fun and will put us all in a lighthearted, happy frame of mind.

About Mabel’s Labels Acrylic Letter Tags:

Mabel’s Labels Acrylic Letter Tags

Mabel’s Labels has been one of my favorite brands for years and with good reason. If you’ve got kids, you’ll want to label their stuff! One great thing about this brand is they grow with your kids and family and always have something new to offer. Last year for instance, I showcased their lovely holiday gift tag collection in my gift guide. I’m thrilled to be able to share them in this year's gift guide as well.

Mabel's Labels M & T tags

These new Acrylic Letter Tags from Mabel's Labels are such a fun way to customize and identify your families belonging. Everything from backpacks, gym bags, pencil cases, lunch bags, keychains, you name it, a cool personalized letter tag fits the bill. 


There’s  four colors ( Glitter Pink, Glitter Silver, Neon Yellow and Gloss Black) and two fonts to choose from, so your family can quickly ID their stuff, without having their full name visible to strangers.  The lobster hook makes it easy for kids to attach their letter tag themselves to their belongings.

About Name Bubbles:

Name Bubbles write on labels

I love stickers and organizing, so when I learned about the cute labels at Name Bubbles, I had to check them out. This company was started by a Mom who wanted to help herself and other Moms stay organized. Thanks Michelle! Even though most products are geared for babies and littles: clothing labels, bottles, medical, waterproof labels and more,there are very useful labels for adults like the clothing labels for nursing homes and retirement communities. I spent a fun few minutes shopping their well organized website and decided on the waterproof write on labels. 

Name Bubbles Label Set

I ordered these cute circular labels for my daughter who’s a kindergarten teacher. Hopefully, she won’t decide to read this year's gift guide and spoil her surprise. I thought these would be perfect for her to personalize her students' items at their desks. She can simply write their initials with the handy pencil that’s included.

This next gift has Dad Gift Written all over it. Well, not literally All over it, but Daddy is in the name.

About Battery Daddy Storage System:

Battery Daddy Storage System


Is your husband or Dad the battery guy in your life too? My husband has a mental list of all the types of batteries we currently have available, has a system for disposing of old batteries and would appreciate us not taking a battery if it’s the last of its kind without telling him. Ever since we became parents and needed a bazillion batteries for everything from baby monitors to their toys, my husband has been the Battery Daddy! Sound familiar? Have I got the perfect gift idea.

Battery Daddy

The Battery Daddy is the ultimate in battery storage and organization. The handy two-sided case can hold up to 180 batteries including  78 AAs, 64 AAAs, 8 9-Volts, 10 Cs, 12 Coin Cells and 8 Ds. Batteries aren’t included in the Battery Daddy, but as all adults will attest, we are used to hearing “batteries not included” and planning accordingly. One super cool feature that is included is a battery tester!

Now, my hubby can test just how much life is left in the batteries I took out of my Halloween decor and put in the junk drawer. This is a useful and fun gift for anybody really, but it's perfect for Dads. You can purchase one on Amazon using my referral link here and save during their Black Friday sale. 

If Battery Daddy was for Dads, then this next gift idea is for young at heart Dads, Brothers, Uncles, Sons or anybody who loves comics.

About DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Series: 

DC's Legends of Tomorrow series set

Legends of Tomorrow, the complete series set will wow any super hero film or tv buff. Even comic book lovers would probably find this set full of entertaining tidbits on well known characters like Rip Hunter, Captain Cold, Firestorm. Atom, Hawkgirl, Hawkman, Superman and Lois Lane. 

DC's Legends of Tomorrow series

Fans take this series seriously, so I tread lightly here as I’m just learning about this cute, blue monster named Beebo. This fictional character is reported to be loveable, huggable and docile, but I won’t know for sure until I watch this series with my husband.

DC's Legends of tomorrow dvd series set

I know this series is going to provide hours of entertainment for us.  You can purchase this via the DC Shop here or utilize my Amazon referral link here, where you’ll be able to save during their Black Friday sale. 

The last gift of my six fun gift ideas for the whole family really is fun for the whole family! I’m happy to introduce you to the coolest selfie camera around. 

About Air Selfie Neo Camera:

Air Neo Camera set

I was first introduced to the Air Selfie last year when I attended a recent Techfluence event and thought, wow, your own pocket sized personal photographer? Sign me up! So imagine my delight when I received an email asking me to try out the Air Neo and if I liked it, please share it in this gift guide. 

Air Neo camera

The Air Neo from AirSelfie is an innovative idea that takes high definition photos and videos from the air hands free, by using AI to track your motion.  You simply download the app, connect and then select which mode you’d like to utilize Tilt Mode Controls, Joystick Controls, or AutoFly Button Shortcuts.

It all sounds simple and straightforward enough, but so far I haven’t progressed beyond Autofly mode. My husband and I are going to play around with it this afternoon, so hopefully, I’ll be sharing some cool selfies and videos on Instagram soon, which I can share directly from the Air Neo app, which is another handy feature. 

Air Neo power bank

Each Air Neo comes with extra propellers and a portal power bank which comes in very handy since the battery life on this camera isn’t very long. I can get maybe 6 or 7 minutes per flight and then I’m prompted to charge the device. But trust me, that is plenty of time for you and your family to strike a pose, bust a move, or take a cool 360 photo.

Ready to have lots of fun this holiday season? Grab an Air Neo on the Airselfie website here, or use my Amazon referral link here where you can save during their Black Friday sale. 

Happy Shopping!I hope you all have a happy, safe Thanksgiving and start to the holiday season!
