Tis the season for gift giving. It is sometime hard to come up with one more thing for the Grandparents or family member seems to have everything. So give these a try, these simple snowman print glasses are the perfect conversation piece for holiday get togethers. Personalize them by adding some vinyl letters to the back.- Simply Sprout

Baked Goods

It always means so much to get one of their creations from school. The look of pride on their faces from having worked hard on a project or a craft, and the huge teeth-filled grin as they present me with what they’ve made, I want to bottle that feeling to have forever and ever. This holiday, I want that – I want to get my kids more involved in, not just the gift-giving, but in the gift-making. More than they normally are. – Crazy Adventures in Parenting
