2013 Christmas Gift Guide

Oprah just released her list of favorite things for the 2013 Holiday Season. And while the items are wonderful, not everyone has the money nor the space for a stand alone deep fryer.

Here are some of my suggestions to help you find gifts for all your loved ones this holiday season! All items listed below are under $50 in order to help you stay within your budgeting goals.

    Kristin, you have some interesting suggestions here. I have a crank flashlight on my wishlist and this one would be perfect, I also give books and games as gifts regularly and I’m heading over to check out the BabbaCo activity boxes now.

      REI also has a crank flashlight with phone charger but it is specific to certain cell phones, so I didn’t include it in the list. I love the BabbaCo activity boxes and would recommend subscribing to their email list as they send out great ideas, recipes, and offers.

        I will check out the other flash light with the phone charger and see if it would work with my phone.

        I did subscribe to the BabbaCo email list, with little ones around several times a week and being stuck indoors more I can use all the ideas I can get. 🙂
