Holiday Wishlist 2010 – Things Remembered Personalized Giveaway

Personalized gifts come from the heart. That’s why when Things Remembered approached me recently on a review and giveaway I jumped at the chance. We’ve all received a bridal party gift or shower favor that was emblazoned with the date of the event and the happy couple’s names but Things Remembered has sooooo much more. The holiday season is the best time to express your love, appreciation and gratitude for your loves ones, friends, coworkers and other special someones like teachers and clergy. Things Remembered has a slew of gifts for everyone on your list.

Something extra special that Things Remembered does each year is offer exclusive products that benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. The Resilient Heart Necklace sparkles with the joy of the season and displays a crystal heart at the center of a textured pendant. Also available is the Radiant Star Bracelet that features a crystal-bordered star charm, multiple intertwined chains and toggle closure. Both can be engraved with a name, date or special wish, and $2 from each purchase is donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I was able to personalize the Radiant Star Bracelet with a message for my grandmother. The message simply stated “Always In My Heart”. With many miles distancing us I wanted to give her a little reminder that I’m always thinking of her and miss her dearly each day.

Holiday Wishlist 2010 – Magic Cabin $50 Giveaway

Little kids toys should be entertaining but also educational but of course not over stimulating. Magic Cabin is a go-to source for just these products. Magic Cabin has been guided by the simple notion that children’s lives are enriched by ample time for open-ended, creative, imaginative play.


We are a fan of these type of toys, toys that don’t require batteries, toys that require kid-power and toys whose play isn’t dictated by a character on tv. Yes we love our electronics and gadgets and video games but we also love our downtime play where imaginations are used and the sky is the limit.

I’ve known about Magic Cabin for many years as the Fairy place. These fairies are cherished by children all over and for good reason they are handcrafted and adorable. The dolls and Kathe Kruse® of Germany are all lovingly made to last a lifetime of hugs and cuddles.

We got the chance to review a couple baby & toddler toys for my nieces. The Stacking Cups are soft enough for the littlest ones but sturdy enough for the little learners and who doesn’t love a gnome.

Wooden pull toys were always Shae’s favorite, that’s why we choose the Holgate Mail Truck Shape Sorter as a gift for one of the 1 year olds. It’s chunky shapes fit well into her hands and the lid pops off for easy access.

Let’s see what Santa brings for me 🙂




Holiday Wishlist 2010 – Comfy Sacks Bean Bag Chair Giveaway

Comfort is key when it’s time to settle down in the living room. Yeah the sofa and chairs are comfortable but you know what’s even better; a Comfy Sack. A Comfy Sack is a “bean bag” with a twist.

Comfy Sacks uses superior foam and quality fabrics than any other foam bag chair company on the market. Their foam is softer and more comfortable because they use premium furniture grade foam.


We received our Comfy Sack bean bag chair about a month ago and were amazed at the size of the box it same in. I knew we ordered a 6Foot Lounger but the package was no bigger than Shae. The process of opening it, setting it up and fluffing up the foam took just minutes but it was a hysterical few minutes. We were all amazed at the size it finally ended up being. Fully fluffed it is taller than Shae but soft enough that she can climb on easily. It may not have been the smartest idea to get such a large Comfy Sack because it takes up so much room but I can’t imagine not having it in the living room.

packed up tight

The 6 foot lounger is big enough the kids to all sit together and watch a movie and best of all big enough that Rob and I can take a quick nap on Saturday afternoon. Imagine having company over for football and having this for an extra 2 or 3 seats. It’s a perfect spot to tackle my niece and tickle her till she can’t breathe. It’s used so much that when we had to move it out of the room for a party my son cried thinking we got rid of it. A small bean bag chair would be perfect for a kid’s bedroom as a gaming seat, reading spot or quiet spot to just play, relax or doze. With plenty of colors and materials to choose from you can pop a Comfy Sack into almost any room for instant seating, comfort, warmth and play. I say play because we probably use it in ways we aren’t supposed to (like launching baby dolls into the air after jumping on it from the sofa).

This is a good fit for our family even though it takes up a ridiculous amount of space in our living room. This holiday season LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too! is giving away a 3.5 foot suede Sack (winner chooses the color), $181 value. Visit Comfy Sacks and tell me which bean bag (size/color/style) would get the most use in your home.

Holiday Wishlist 2010 – Powermat Review and Giveaway

If you are anything like my family then you have nine million things that need to be charged. In our house we have three cell phones, two blue tooth devices, three iPod’s and a Nintendo DS and were in desperate need of a charging station.  Thank goodness we got a chance to review the Home & Office Mat with Powercube from Powermat.

The home and office mat with Powercube is really cool because you can charge up to three devices at one time by either using a receiver or the Powercube.  Powermat also offers portable mats for that person who is always on the go.  The Powercube comes with either 2 tips : Mini USB and Micro USB or 8 tips : Mini USB, Micro USB, Samsung, LG, Apple, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DS Lite, Sony PSP making it a very universal device.   The Powercube is what I use to charge my Blackberry 8530, Melinda’s Samsung Fascinate and both of our Jawbone Icon Bluetooth’s.  The Powercube allows you to charge hundreds of devices wirelessly. 

The Powermat to me is the most versatile charging system out on the market today with so many different options it would be hard to find a device that it wouldn’t charge.  It is simple to use with its audio confirmation which is a unique sound that lets you know your device is connected properly and charging.  The Powermat also had auto shut off and full charge check allowing you to save energy and not overcharge your device.  It is also a very affordable system versus having to buy multiple home chargers for your cell phone, Bluetooth or any other device you might need to charge at home or while in the office.   

If you are looking for a device that is slim, sleek and allows you charge many devices with one plug then you need to get yourself or that gadget person on your holiday list a Powermat.

Want a Powermat of your own head over to Powermat and tell me what item or items you like or something cool about the products.

Holiday Wishlist 2010 – Company Kids EcoFun Giveaway

Creative play is an integral part of childhood and development. The Company Kids Eco Art Fun supplies are a great way to get children to use art as a way to express themselves.

Free of artificial dyes and chemicals the Dough and Paint are not only good for kids and the environment but good for the playful soul. Did you know a common method of treating autism is through “art therapy”. It could be because it focuses on addressing the difficulties of imagination play. Art is, by nature, a very individual, creative and hands on process. Allowing these children to explore with clays, paints, crayons, brushes and embellishments allows them to experiment without borders.

Eco Dough and Paint both include 5 colors (green, yellow, blue, orange and purple) and are 4 oz each and are made with all natural mineral pigments.

Play doughs, paints and supplies are good for all children whether on the spectrum or not so be sure to enter to win an Eco Art Fun Pack here at LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too! Visit Company Kids and tell me what other creative and imagination play things you’d like to try out.
