{Gourmet Gift Baskets.com} + Giveaway

Who doesn’t love a gift basket? A beautiful collection of tasty treats!  We have discovered an awesome gift basket company called Gourmet Gift Baskets.  They make handmade gift baskets with gourmet foods, and they have a huge selection of baskets.

We got the chance to try the “Nutcracker Drum Christmas Gift Basket” which has nutcracker cookies, chocolate peppermint cookie brittle, peanut brittle, butter wafers, white chocolate amaretto wafers, English toffee caramels (my favorite!), peanut roll, and praline pecans, which are all amazing and all contained in a keepsake drum. This is a high quality selection of treats in a beautiful container drum bowl – the perfect gift for Christmas!  The basket was very well packaged; it was obvious that the contents did not shift at all and were beautifully displayed.  The couple of artificial poinsettias included completed the festive look.

           

In addition to the beautiful baskets and yummy treats, one of the things that I really love about Gourmet Gift Baskets is their website. It is very well-organized and has tons of categories to help you quickly find the perfect gift. It makes it very easy to find the perfect basket that someone will absolutely love. You can shop by Holiday, Most Popular, Occasions & Sentiments, Price, type of food, Theme and more.

Since it is so close to the Holidays, I was going to show you guys only photos of Holiday baskets, but some of their hobby baskets would be the perfect unique gift for some “difficult-to-shop-for” people.  I know people on my list that are the perfect match for fishing, gardening, beer, and golf baskets.

Gourmet Gift Basket’s beautiful quality baskets have been featured in many popular magazines and TV shows.  They say they are “a family run enterprise that is big enough to handle a 10,000 basket order, yet not too big [that they] can’t give you personalized attention” and they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. When you are looking for gifts to send this year, definitely check out Gourmet Gift Baskets.

{Go Go Sports Girls Doll} + Giveaway

Walk down any “pink” aisle in the toy department and you’ll see how the dolls go from baby-dolls that need to be cared for to teen-dolls with too-much make-up and skimpy clothing. There really aren’t many choices in between.

If you are a mom to a girl, you know how hard it can be to find dolls that are age-appropriate, affordable, cute, and fun. Go Go Sports Dolls are all of those things and more. They are an adorable line of dolls that are designed to encourage girls to be active and develop positive self-esteem and healthy lifestyles. The 14″ dolls each have a sports uniform and accessories – there is a choice of golf, soccer, running, tennis, gymnastics, dance, softball, swimming, and basketball.  Here are images of a few of them:

I love the story behind them. Their creator, Jodi Norgaard, is a mom who was realized there was a need for a doll that “would be age appropriate, proportioned properly and send a positive message about a healthy lifestyle” – so she created one (with the input of her 10 year old daughter). The Go Go Sports Girls received the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award in 2009 and the Creative Child Magazine 2009 Seal of Excellence. The company also gives a portion of their profits to Girls Inc which is an organization that inspires all girls to be “strong, smart, and bold”

The dolls themselves are soft and lightweight. They are also durable, easy to carry around, and great for cuddling. The dolls come with a tag attached that tells about them and their positive activities and habits which encourages girls to identify with the dolls and hopefully try to be like them too because they are great roll models.

These would make a great gift for the little girls on your list. I love the “dream big and go for it” message of these dolls.

{Galison} + Giveaway

As a busy mom, I find myself using lots of stationary and things to keep me organized. I was very excited to discover Galison. Galison makes beautiful boxed note cards, decorative labels, organizers, desk items, and more using fine art and contemporary designs. And they have tons of great holiday designs too.  (Yep, it’s that time of year again.)   I love having beautiful desk of supplies to work with!

Their note cards are beautiful.  These are some of my favorities:  

 I especially love their organzing products. As a busy mom, I find that I’m keeping track of tons of things for myself and other family members. I got the opportuinity to try out one of their weekly organizers.  It’s available in tons of cute prints, but my favorite is the sleek, clazzy look of the modern geometry print.

It’s a nice folder with a magnetic clasp that contains weekly organizing sheets, three sticky note pads, a memo pad, and a reciept envelope. There are also other coordinating organization products including file totes, journals, file folders and more. The organizing sheets work perfectly for the way I keep track of things, and I love the tons of sticky notes so I can leave reminders for the kids (and myself).

And for kids, they have lots cool products available through their other store called Mudpuppy. They have beautifully designed toys, educational puzzles, games, stationery, diaries and more for kids.

Stop by Galison to see all the great prints that the weekly organizer comes in AND make sure to enter to win a Weekly Organizer in Modern Geometry print here at Smart and Trendy Moms.

{First Fitness Balance Battle Combat Fitness} + Giveaway

I’m sure you’ve seen Aqua Leisure products. They make those great swim floats and sun shades for summertime fun. They have added a new line of products called First Fitness. Their goal with First Fitness is to offer fun active sports equipment and games for kids to get them interested in fitness early and to make fitness fun. I love this. They have a jump rope with a counter, hop balls, obstacles courses, even a kids treadmill and lots more. I love fun things that encourage kids to spend less time with electronics and more time being active.

 

We got the opportunity to review the First Fitness Balance Battle Combat Fitness Game. It is lots of fun.
It comes with two soft inflatable battle sticks and two balance pads. The object is to use the bats to knock the other person off their balance circle. My kids love this! First Fitness says that it helps kids work on their balance equilibrium and agility skills. It also teaches them to react and recover. There is also an amount of strategy involved in deciding how to hit, push, or move based on what the other person does. One strategy my son used was just standing there while his sister hit him until she lost her balance and fell off, lol.

Balancing on the circles is fun (and challenging) by itself. (I’ve noticed that lots of exercise programs for adults are using discs like this.)  The kids were even trying to balance on one foot.  Balancing on the disc is actually harder than you’d think. You can really feel your muscles working to help keep you on the disc. Then when you add in swinging the inflatable bats, things get really challenging and really fun. The bats are soft and don’t hurt if you get bopped in the head or the body.  They do hurt a bit if you get hit in the face. We have a “no hitting in the face” rule to keep everybody happy.

We also found that to make the balance pads easier you can not inflate them as much.  Mom and Dad played too (you can’t let the kids have all the fun), and in one match dad was laughing so hard that he fell off the disk without even being hit. I love that the kids are working on balance and hand eye coordination while they are having fun. And I’m sure that all the laughing they are doing is also working on their stomach muscles, too. lol

If you are looking for something that is active and fun for kids on your list, check out the Balance Battle Combat Fitness Game  by First Fitness.

{Dav} + Giveaway

Dav rainwear is a line of beautiful and sophisticated footwear and accessories for rainy days. I’ve always loved rainy days and now I look forward to them even more since I’ve got my Dav boots! If you don’t like rainy days, a great pair of Dav boots may just be the thing that changes your mind!  :-)

Dav says that their boots are luxury foot wear and I definitely agree. Not only are their boots stylish, they are also well made and very comfortable, and they have a soft and cozy fleece lining.  There are lots of beautiful colors and styles to choose from. Dav has English Style, Western Style, and Fashion boots.  They have many beautiful umbrellas with unique prints (some that even match the boots).  They also have some adorable kids-sized boots and umbrellas.

I wear the Victoria Lynx Rainboot in slate and I love them.  They are beautiful, comfortable, and keep my feet dry.  I love how the lace-up back of the Victoria style lets you adjust the boot to give extra room around the top. They also have a textured bottom to help prevent slipping. They are very easy to wipe clean after a day in rainy, muddy weather.  They are so fashionable and pretty, I want to wear them even when it isn’t raining!

Visit their site to see even more.

If you are looking for practical and beautiful gifts that women or kids on your gift list would love, be sure to check out Dav Rainwear.

{Chasing Treasure } +Giveaway

I love jewelry boxes. It is important to have a good jewelry box to keep your jewelry in good condition and well-organized so you can find what you are looking for. When she was little, we got my daughter a small box with two drawers to keep her plastic princess bracelets in. As she got older and has started to get more “grown up” jewelry, she continued to use that box and was constantly loosing earrings or bracelets and sometimes vacuuming them up (Yes, for anyone who has not done it, the vacuum does destroy earrings). As soon as we got her a jewelry box that was well-deigned and beautiful (about a year ago), she hasn’t lost or damaged a single pair of earrings! That. to me, proves the importance of a good jewelry box.

Chasing Treasure has some beautiful high quality jewelry boxes for women, men and for kids.

A good travel jewelry box is important too. When you go on a trip you want to make sure that you look nice, but jewelry can be challenging to keep track of in suitcases and hotel or guest rooms. You need a box to keep things well organized and keep things from getting damaged or lost. We got the opportunity to review a leather travel jewelry box. I love it. It is a great size and has space for a little of everything! The color and the quality are great and the lock and key are a great added feature to the box. Its a great way to take my jewelry along on any trips and have it organized and ready to wear.

Check out Chasing Treasure for jewelry boxes that would make great gifts, and if you are traveling this holiday season you can view their travel cases and jewelry wallets here.

{LeCosmetique} + Giveaway

If you have anyone on your list this year that would like some great makeup or makeup accessories, or if you need some great makeup for the Holiday Season, you can find lots of great options on the LeCosmetique website.  LeCosmetique offers high quality cosmetics at affordable prices. 

The site is owned and run by Suzanne Talmont who has put together a superior collection of cosmetic products that you can use to achieve beautiful results.  They have “the essential tools and products for the professional makeup artist and the makeup enthusiast,” including lots makeup palettes, lipsticks, cleansers, concealers, makeup cases, and a large selection of brushes and equipment and other accessories and even airbrushing equipment.   I see tons of great things on their site that I would love!

They offer palettes with 88 eye shadow colors for around 20 dollars. Where else could you get the opportunity to try out 88 different colors of professional-quality makeup for that price?   A palette like this is awesome to try out great new colors or if you like to vary your look and work with different color combinations. 

I got the opportunity to try out the 72 Color Neutral Eye Shadow palette and I love it.  It goes on very smoothly and evenly and blends well.  I’ve found that it is also long-lasting.  I also love the subtle variations in colors.  It’s fun to see what all of the different color combinations you can come up with and the different looks you can achieve with them.

{Dulash} + Giveaway open WORLDWIDE

Who doesn’t want long, dark, full eyelashes? Even if I’m not going to be wearing make up for the day, I always put on mascara. I look and feel better when my eyelashes look great. I recently found extra help for my eyelashes. I got the opportunity to try Dulash.

Dulash is an all natural gel that stimulates eyelash growth and conditions your lashes. It comes in a dual applicator package.  One side has a liquid-eyeliner-type brush that lets you apply the growth stimluator to the base of your lashes. The other side has a mascara-type wand to apply the conditioner to your lashes. They say you should notice results in about 4 weeks. I started noticing my lashes looking thicker after about 3 weeks of using dulash the recommended two times per day (and yeah, I did forget a few applications. Give me a break; I’m a busy mom, lol). You do have to make sure your makeup has been removed before you apply it, but once it dries you can put makeup over it.

The two-part approach to longer eyelashes is great. You get the gel to help lashes grow longer, and you get the conditioner to keep them thick in great shape. I had never considered it before, but according to the Dulash website, “Typically, only about 24% of a woman’s eyelashes ever reach full length, and most sustain damage or breakage from curling, makeup or cleansing.” I condition my hair to keep it in good shape, but never thought about my eyelashes.

I was happy with Dulash. I wasn’t able to do any scientific measurements of my own as far as length of my lashes (you can see the information about their clinical trials on their website here) However, I did notice that my lashes seemed thicker and fuller, love that!

{Kidtoons- Care Bears: Share Bear Shines} +Giveaway

I had the wonderful pleasure of telling a little about Kidtoons a few weeks ago. I am totally excited about their newest feature, Care Bears: Share Bear Shines. Both of my daughters are growing up to love Care Bears even more then i did as a little girl. This looks like a great movie for the whole family. The Care Bears always find a way to share positive messages while still being really fun for kids. Kidtoons is also offering one STM reader a chance to win a great prize pack full of exciting goodies. Just in time for the holidays. Sign up for the Kidtoons Birthday Club and they will send you a free Kidtoons movie pass to celebrate your special day!

It’s time for the Twinklets’ migration over Care A Lot, but the Bears wait all night without spotting any Twinklets. When a single Twinklet appears and falls to the ground, Share decides to take matters into her own hands. The other Bears are skeptical about the existence of the mythical Princess Starglo, but Share is convinced that the Princess can solve the mystery of the missing Twinklets. So, with the lone Twinklet (now called Gleamer), Share sets off secretly to find Princess Starglo. When Share and Gleamer reach Glitter City and find the Princess, things are worse than they thought. Princess Starglo is shutting off the stars, because no one believes in her anymore. Meanwhile, back in Care A Lot, the other Bears discover that Share is missing and go after her. The Bears convince Princess Starglo that they do believe and together, find a way to rescue the Twinklets and relight the stars in the sky.

Kidtoons is dedicated to helping parents connect with their kids by bringing family friendly animated movies to the big screen every weekend at participating theatres across the country.

Participating Kidtoons theatres showcase a fun, affordable family friendly matinee movie and provide a family experience filled with entertaining, kid-friendly characters, as well as cartoon shorts, music videos and sing-alongs before each movie. We even have fun giveaways for the kids, such as stickers, temporary tattoos, activity books or toys after every film.

As parents, and as producers of kids’ entertainment, we launched the Kidtoons program to enable families to enjoy movies on the big screen on a regular basis. We know that parents are looking for opportunities to connect with their children, and enjoying the movie-going experience as a family provides easy and fun opportunities for togetherness.

As part of making sure that the content is age appropriate, we’ve asked an expert, Dr. Donna Mitroff, to talk with you about our movies each month. Check out Dr. Donna’s reviews for additional information about the plot, the level of action and the types of humor in the movie, as well as some thought-provoking discussion points for the whole family.

{Lotus Home Cleaning System}+Giveaway

I am always looking for ways to make my home “greener” and avoid using harsh chemicals. The Lotus Home Cleaning System decontaminates food and sanitizes surfaces without any chemicals. When I heard about the Lotus Home Cleaning System, I was immediately interested, but I’ll admit I had doubts – cleaning with water? But its actually very cool. It even made Time magazine’s list of best new inventions for 2006! 
Here’s how it works: It converts tap water into superoxygenated water by taking the water into the base where it uses electricity to split the oxygen molecules and then forces an extra atom to combine with it. The water is then carrying this form of oxygen that acts as a natural sanitizer that kills bacteria and viruses and removes pesticides and chemicals. They say it is as powerful as bleach and even kills e-coli and salmonella. And it is approved by the FDA and USDA.
‘;
Take a look to see all of it’s uses and the types of cleaners it can replace.  The home cleaning system comes with the base until, a bowl and lid for cleaning fruit and vegetables, a spray bottle for surface cleaning, a booster cartridge, and two microfiber cloths. It is very easy to use. You simply attach the bottle to the base and push the button. The bowl is easy to use as well and cleans and removes pesticides in a few mintues.  There are also other accessories available including a wet mop, a toothbrush cleaner, and a baby bottle attachment.
If you’d like to check it out, stop by the Lotus Website and check it out.  You can ask Santa for one this year or maybe you can win one right here on Smart and Trendy Moms.

{Oransi-Robby Wash Ball}+Giveaway

The only thing i like about laundry is getting it done! It is just another major on going project it seems. With so many in the house we use a outrageous amount of laundry soap and things to make all that laundry smell fresh. I heard about the Robby Wash Ball and decided it was time shake things up a bit in the laundry room. The Robby Wash Ball is unlike anything i have ever seen or used.

At first it was a little hard to let go of my laundry soap as it does become a habit. But i was completely delighted at how fresh and clean the clothes came out, with NO traditional soap. Because when using it there is no need for detergent. Each Robby Wash pack will clean for an average of 12 months. The savings alone would make me more happier to get a load going! I think it is a great product and had a great time learning about  how it uses patented worldwide technology to clean your clothes. They are really afforadable at only 32.94 and can be found at Oransi

The practical laundry washing ball

easy to use:

   1. Toss it in your washing machine and leave it there (works with both front and top load washing machines)
   2. None of the hassles that you have with traditional laundry detergent such as lugging it through the store, cleaning up spilled detergent, etc.
   3. Easy on your wallet

effective – The Robby Wash ball uses a unique and patented worldwide technology to clean your laundry even better than the powder laundry detergents it was independently tested against.  Its activated macromolecules are gradually released through the wash, dissolving dried-in stains by generating ions which activate the water molecules.  This increase in the pH enables the activated molecules to penetrate deep into the fabrics and attach themselves to the stains. As the motion of the drum agitates the clothes, the stains come away easily from the fabric and dissolve in the water.  Of all the systems on the market, Robby Wash’s effectiveness is tested, proven and guaranteed.

green (see our environment section for more)

    * Ultra high efficiency laundry solution – no need to add any laundry detergent
    * Hypoallergenic and great choice as a baby laundry detergent cleaner
    * Does not pollute the environment like standard laundry detergents
    * Easy to refill so you do not need to throw away the ball
    * RoHS lead free directive certified
    * No phosphates or chlorine
    * Safe to use with bleach however we recommend using our included stain stick for stain removal or a salt cleaner as this will not damage the fibers in your laundry like bleach can.

Note:  Oransi does not manufacture the Robby Wash laundry products, but after testing the Robby Wash cleaning balls against other washing balls as well as traditional laundry detergent, high efficiency laundry detergents and odor removers like Oxi-Clean we have become huge fans and thrilled to be able to exclusively distribute this hypoallergenic laundry type detergent in the US.  Our tests were not conducted in a test lab but rather in personal experience in cleaning the clothes of active teenagers.  Check out the why Robby Wash laundry page to learn more.
Top 11 robby wash ball benefits that delight:

1. Save money – it’s hard enough to carry all those boxes of laundry detergents much less pay a premium for them – that’s why we make it affordable for you.  Standard laundry detergents can cost you up to $1 per load whereas the highly efficient robby laundry ball is less than $0.25 per load.

2. Simple.  Just throw it in the washing machine.
   Anyone can now do the laundry! Works in both front and top load washing machines.

3. Targeted cleaning. 
Use the fuschia ball for low temperature loads (32-90ºF) and the blue washing ball for high temperatures (32-180ºF). Maintains softness in your laundry while removing odors and stains.

4. Hypoallergenic.  Since you are not using cups of laundry detergent your laundry is cleaned in a manner that is much easier on your skin while at the same time giving you the performance you expect in a highly efficient laundry cleaner.

5. Baby safe laundry solution.  Formulated to being gentle on your child’s clothes but strong enough to remove the stains.

6. Free stain stick included with each washing ball purchase.

7. Fresh scent. Your clothes will have a very light fresh scent for a feeling of freshness.

8. High efficiency laundry.  Each Robby Wash ball pack will clean on average for 12 months.  This includes three refill packets of macromolecules.  If you have an over-sized washing machine, we recommend using two washing balls.

9. Helps the environment.  Just look at what you are not dumping down the pipes (10 ounce ball = 75+ pounds of laundry detergent)!

10. Economical refills.  Simply open the tab on the ball to refill with the macro molecule pellets when they are less than 75% full.  This keeps you from having to throw away the ball.  Each ball should last for 2-3 years.

11. Safety.  Designed in France to meet the strict compliance requirements of the Europe and contains no phosphates or chlorine.  The Robby Wash ball has received safety certifications from REACH, RoHS.  Each ball is made of durable ABS materials.
