For the sake of this post, I am including items that I have used in my gift basket however you are free to use whatever items you feel better suit the recipient of your gift(s). Everyone has their own tastes so definitely feel free to change things up. This gift guide is also pretty suitable for any age. Young girls to older women.

Let's Get Crafty with the We Craft Box

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Several nights a week my husband works overtime on night shift which leads this mama bear to get all of the kids fed, bathed, and entertained until bedtime. Mom guilt sets in and while it is so EASY to grab the tablet or turn on a movie, I usually like filling this time with books that I can easily tie a craft in with or with other independent activities that get my kid’s brains running but their bodies in one place. Feed thir brains and moms sanity all in one. An occupied child means I can get the house picked up so when everyone is fast asleep in bed, I can sit back and RELAX. I know, that sounds horrible but I enjoy a few hours of solitude after the kids have gone to bed to catch up on my TV shows or even read a book. We Craft Box has made my last minute evening task, rainy day activity, and even a moment of silence possible.

Pre-Teen Skincare Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated

Pre-Teen Skincare Doesn't Have To Be Complicated

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I see it asked a dozen different times in several mom groups I follow on Facebook, what skin care products should I get for my pre-teen? I then see another dozen different responses on what companies, which specific products worked for their child, why they didn’t like another recommendation provided, and the list goes on and on. But, let’s not make it any more complicated than we need to. Every skin type follows the basic principles when it comes to finding a routine that works best. Pre-teen skincare is no different.

Sticking to the Basics with Toddler Fun

Sticking to the Basics with Toddler Fun

Beauty Brite Disclosure

As a mom of 4, I am so very guilty of over thinking on what activities would be “fun” for my toddlers and I am sure I am not the only one who feels this way. I find myself constantly searching the internet for toddler fun and fun toddler activities in my area or pinning a million posts on my Pinterest account that I know, I probably won’t ever go back and look at. It’s a shame truly because the ideas are amazing but the motivation to round up all of the supplies necessary just isn’t there to complete such an elaborate task. Not to mention toddlers attention span lasts a lot less than the time it takes to round up and prepare for some activities but I desperately try to eliminate screen time as much as I can in our technology-filled world. That’s not to say they don’t get any screen time because they do, but I try to feed their minds in others ways as well. That is why I took a step back and reevaluated what else I could do that would be fun for toddlers and the answer is, sticking to the basics! Crayons, markers, stickers, and paper. It really is that simple.

Finally Charcoal Toothpaste from a Well-known Brand

Colgate Essentials with Charcoal

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It feels like Colgate has been around forever. I remember using the fruity sparkle toothpaste as a child and even my children now use the same flavored toothpaste from Colgate. I have recently seen an increase in the trend of using activated charcoal to not only clean skin but also for brushing one’s teeth. I have also noticed all of the emerging brands of said charcoal toothpaste and have been hesitant about picking the best one to go with. Now, I don’t have to. Tried and true, Colgate has released their Colgate Essentials with CHARCOAL.

You know what makes this release even better? The fact that the Colgate Toothbrush included with your Colgate Essentials with Charcoal toothpaste also has charcoal in its bristles to make sure you are getting the best clean possible. There’s also no mess with using the Colgate Essentials with Charcoal. The charcoal is already in the toothpaste as well as cleverly mixed with the bristles so now puffs of black powder all over you and your clean bathroom! That’s a huge win in my book.

Don’t Forget Santa’s Milk and Cookies This Christmas

Don't Forget Santa's Milk and Cookies This Christmas

Beauty Brite Disclosure

For as long as I can remember, leaving out milk and cookies for Santa has been the tradition my family has followed. Of course, we leave our Rudolph and his pals carrots as well because who would deliver Santa’s gifts from the North Pole without them?

I have to admit that baking homemade cookies just isn’t my thing. I have tried time and time again to bake them but they NEVER come out like the magazines. Burnt, too hard, undercooked, the wrong shape and about every other worst case scenario is the luck I have when it comes to baking cookies. Now they don’t have to. With Giorgio Cookie Company, I can order my picture perfect cookies ahead of time and avoid the hassle entirely. Santa doesn’t want burnt cookies after all.

Moms: Self-Care Is Important too

Moms Self-Care Is Important too

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I am that type of mom who never takes a moment for herself. My to-do list is a mile long and I don’t know if I will ever meet the end of it. Self-care is certainly not on that list anywhere. Somedays feel like they are never going to end. Add 4 toddlers into the mix and it is a daunting task to accomplish even the simplest of things. As moms, we forget to tend to our self-care needs. You know the needs that extend beyond a quick shower, the leftovers our children didn’t eat from their lunch plate, and our for the third time reheated cup of coffee.

Another issue with being the Mom is that in every single aspect we put ourselves last. We forget about ourselves and how crucial self-care can be when it comes to those around and especially when it comes to spending money on ourselves. If you are anything at all like me, it takes 5 seconds to convince myself that it is perfectly acceptable to spend $10 on my children’s baby wash but it takes me days to convince myself that it is acceptable to spend $5 on my own body wash. I have the money. I am not lacking, I just prefer to save where ever I can which means cutting corners on the items I actually need or want. Clearance Rack? That’s me. Mega Sales Event? You’ll find me there and probably with a coupon if possible. 7th Heaven, however, makes it possible to treat yourself to a little bit of luxury while on the go AND without spending a lot of money in the process.
