Stuff Your Stocking with These Amazing Products


Following a tradition passed down from parent to parent, stockings are always one of the last things I end up running out on Christmas Eve to buy. I have compiled a list of goodies for you to consider for your own family! Whether it be candy, snacks, beauty or a toy- you can find it right here!


Welch’s Fruit Snacks are healthy and small that they would make the best stocking stuffers. I don’t really like to put candy in my toddlers stocking so I fill with small toy and her favorite snack- fruit chews. This year Welch’s came up with 4 pack stocking stuffer size box. Welch’s are: *Made with real fruit * 100% Vitamin C * Vitamins A & C ^ Fat Free * Gluten-Free * No Preservatives

Keep Organized with Chart & Soul

Chart and Soul



Having 4 kids in my house, keeping track of chores and meals and our month is a lot to keep up with. When I saw the charts from Chart and Soul, I knew it was the perfect thing for our busy days. Each of my kids have different chores and every day they “forget” what they have to do. We received a few different products and each of them makes our days a little easier. We got chalkboard jar labels, to do lists, chore charts, a weekly meal planner, and a monthly calendar.


We put one of the chore charts on the wall for my youngest boy to get him to start doing small chores around the house for small “rewards.” We also put the weekly meal planner on the fridge because there was a magnet on the back that made it perfect to put there. Since we already have a calendar on the fridge, my oldest daughter wanted the new calendar for her wall so she can keep her work schedule and appointments all together so she won’t get confused. I am planning on putting the to do list on the wall by where I keep my work things so I can keep straight the things I need to do that day. Each of these products are chalkboards so it’s easy to erase and write the next thing you need. I really love all of the products from Chart and Soul and I know they help my family so much.

Pretend Play with Great Pretenders

Great Pretenders




My youngest son loves anything and everything superheros. We have a very large walk-in closet in our apartment that we call our “toy closet” and 1 wall has lots of capes, masks, and costumes. He loves to dress-up and imagine play around the house and outside. I was so excited for him when Great Pretenders allowed us to review a dress up outfit for my kids. The whole website is amazing and has so many fun costumes for boys and girls. Took me a few days to decide what I wanted to review…. I really did want it all! I finally settled on this cape and mask, which is the best choice- it will benefit not only my son, but my 2 year old daughter will get some play out of it as well!


The Reversible Spider/Bat Cape:The main side of the cape is Spider-Man- made from a satin web printed material with black oversize spiders. What’s really cute about this side of the cape is that only the body is sewn on and its little legs dangle- so adorable. The other side is made of black velour with a yell bat symbol. The size of the cape is a small which is perfect for a child of 36-41.5 inches tall.

Reversible Spider Bat Mask: One side is Batman the other is Spider-Man. Play with them alone or match with the cape. The mask is made of a satin with a velvet lining and padded so there is no ouch when they’re playing. Elastic band holds the mask in place while playing. Perfect for ages 3-8.

I can’t wait until my boy opens this up on Christmas morning. Make sure to check out their website to find your little one the perfect costume just in time for Christmas!

About (taken from website): Once upon a time, there was a mom troubled by the lack fun and imaginative toys for her children. Baffled by this, she set out on her ambitious journey to come up with creative, pretend-play toys that would light up any child’s imagination. Fast forward; her endeavours transcended into a vastly successful dress-up and costume business which manufactures award-winning toys – an innovative leader in the pretend-play market for children. We at Great Pretenders believe that “dress-up” is so much more than just putting on a costume, as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio says: “Pretend play is not just great fun. It’s the way kids develop imagination and creative thinking skills and try out being big and powerful. Pretending also brings the world down to the child’s size and understanding. It’s a way to develop communication skills and an outlet for expressing feelings and fears.”

Fall Snacks with Creative Snacks

Creative Snacks



About (taken from website): We are here to create better snack foods. For us, “better” means affordable, great tasting treats, free from cheap, artificial, or potentially harmful ingredients. Whether we’re creating a well-loved traditional favorite, or exploring fun and exciting new flavors, we stay away from high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, artificial colors, and hydrogenated oils. When you enjoy Creative Snacks, you enjoy real food – good food – in snack form, and you can feel good about every bite you eat and serve. Better snacks, made from better ingredients. That’s us.


In my opinion the best way to welcome fall and the holiday’s is with pumpkin EVERYTHING and warm apple cider. Now I am not a huge fan of too many things that are pumpkin flavored, but I was really excited to start off the holiday seasons with these two bags of snacks!


Apple Cider Yogurt Pretzels: I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I got these. I am a huge fan of pretzels and even hot apple cider. So gathered around me as I opened the bag was my oldest daughter, my youngest son and daughter. I really liked the flavor, it was really spicy though for my taste. Not hot spicy- but flavor spicy. I let my youngest son try one and he literally took the bag and ran off with them. He ended up calling DIBS on the rest of them (lol). I know lots of people in my life that I think would really like these!! These would be a wonderful snack to set out during a holiday party.


Pumpkin Pecan Granola: This is another really great snack my family enjoyed.  The granola came in small cookie size chunks, and they smelled like heaven in a bag. My oldest son has been waiting to try these since they came in the mail so I let him tear into them first. They were so delicious! They tasted like pumpkin pie with pecan on it. I think that they taste good as a snack on their own and would also taste great crumbled up on oatmeal for breakfast.
