Fun Stocking Stuffers! #giveaway

Hey folks!

I know that Halloween has just barely passed and that we are slowly gearing up for Thanksgiving, but here’s the thing. I start thinking about Christmas seriously as soon as Halloween is over. Partially because I am one of those people who braves Black Friday shopping and mainly because I like to be done with my holiday shopping as soon as possible. No really, I’m not kidding. One year I actually had all my shopping done before the end of October. Granted, my kids were much younger and getting the coolest new toys wasn’t a huge issue, but still.

So, I’m in the mindset of Christmas and I’m going to share some of my finds with you!

First up is a great stocking stuffer made in Portland, Oregon! That’s right, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to share with you a product that is made close to me.

Radz are collectable toy candy dispensers. They each come with a package of great-tasting, gluten-free Radz candy which is made specially just for Radz and a backpack buddy clip, because, what better place to keep your candy than on your backpack?! That’s not all though. These super cute characters also grant you free access to,the online world where fans can play fun games, watch videos starring their favorite Radz characters, and submit their own fan art.

That is what I think makes these candy dispensers so unique. Long after the candy is gone, kids can still enjoy their character in Radz World. The cute characters below are Twig and Bubbs, from the Limited Edition Everyday series 1 collection, they will be adorning my kids’ stocking this Christmas. I can’t wait to see their faces when they see these cute little guys on Christmas morning.

Disclosure: I was sent the dispensers pictures above in order to create this post. After checking them out I decided they were a great stocking stuffer.

If I could, I would outfit my daughter in all things Chasing Fireflies. They have such fantastic clothes that are such great quality.

We know the quality is great because we have had the opportunity to check out not only their Halloween costumes but also their holiday clothing.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t ECSTATIC when we were asked to review their Halloween costumes again.

In true form my daughter and I spent some serious time looking through the Wishcraft catalog trying to pick out the best costume for this year. I really wanted her to choose the Heavenly Angel costume, but of course the girl chose the gorgeous Sweet Fairy Princess (retails $78).

I swear I tear up at this picture every time I look at it. This little girl is a shining light in my life and in this picture I see a glimpse of her as a lovely young woman. *sigh*

Fabulous clothes from FabKids!

Growing up I was a bit of a Tom-Boy.

Much to my mother’s dismay, I frowned upon wearing dresses and having my hair done.

My daughter on the other hand. Complete girly girl.

This is why, when I was given the opportunity to try out FabKids, I knew it was perfect for her.

FabKids is a really neat site for girls clothing. After you fill out your daughter’s style profile, you receive recommended outfits based on her likes and personality. Each month a new outfits will be available, (include 3 pieces: top, bottom, and hair accessory,) and you can choose to purchase them for $39.95 or skip that month all together. There is never any obligation to purchase and you get free shipping and returns!

The style profile is really easy to fill out and a lot of fun.
