I have a few suggestions for gift ideas for really anyone. These 3 items were given to me and I love them, but never would have thought of it myself. Have you heard of Skylight? I hadn’t until my husband and daughter gave me Skylight for Mother’s Day this year and I LOVE IT! It’s a digital picture frame that is so easy to set up and enjoy right away. You send pictures to an email address via a computer, cell phone or iPad and they will pop up in the picture frame. You can give the email address to anyone so they can also send pictures directly to the frame. The photos appear as a slideshow, but you can freeze it on a specific photo that you like. It’s so much better than just a regular photo frame that you would have to take the picture and replace it with another one. I like to change the photos with the holidays. Right now, I have last year’s family Christmas photo up, which I just changed from a Thanksgiving photo. It would be great at home and at the office.
The next gift idea is Raddish – a cooking club for kids. My mother gave this to my daughter for her birthday and it has been a great help getting us in the kitchen. I am not a very good cook, nor can I cook from scratch, but this is really helping me in the kitchen while also teaching my daughter how to cook. A new “kit” arrives every month, depending on the plan that you choose. You can pick 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 12 months. The kit includes 3 recipes, a kitchen tool to be used with one of the recipes, a game for table fun, kitchen techniques and conversation starters. The first kit also included an apron. We also get an email when the kit has shipped letting us know what is on the way. I love the step by step instructions as well as the complete list of groceries you will need. I think the Strawberry Shortcake recipe has to be my favorite so far. My daughter really enjoys getting the kitchen tool. When the pastry blender came in the kit, I had no idea what it was. Luckily the recipe card told us. I really should have spent more time in the kitchen with my mom when I was younger. I regret that now but am enjoying this time with my daughter.
The last gift was given to me by Auntie JoJo. Keep our Sea Plastic Free t-shirt is the softest, most comfortable t-shirt I have ever worn. I get compliments on it all the time. I’m not sure exactly where she purchased it, but I found it at Wholesome Culture.com and I’m sure you can find it on Amazon. Wholesome Culture has a nice mission statement and they also donate 10% of profits to animal rescue and environmental organizations.
