So Cool! Sharks – Sharks are among the world’s top predators, but that’s just ONE reason why they are SO COOL. So who wouldn’t want to hang out with them to learn more! These books blend awesome animal photos with silly quips and info that will delight young readers and animal enthusiasts.

This is the perfect little reader to get their brain buzzing and keep them laughing during downtime, bedtime, or anytime.
So Cute! Pandas – Get ready for cute overload, panda style. And the funny thing is, this panda isn’t just cute. It’s got attitude! You’ll flip over the adorable photos and be equally charmed by what this sassy little panda is thinking on every page. Introducing the brand-new series from National Geographic Kids that combines two wonderful things: super cute photos of all your favorite fluffy animals and silly text that will have the whole family laughing. Add to that some great nonfiction content that gets kids learning, and, what can we say? This series is just so cute!
These are perfect for gift giving- what kid wouldn’t love to receive them?

Get a DVD Player and 5 Movies for only $19.96 #GiftGuide @walmart @redbox

Yes I know, I know. Who even watches DVDs anymore? Me, that’s who. And everyone over 40. And honestly, I like having kids DVDs I can hand over that can just be repeated on a long road trip or plane ride. My grandparents and everyone my parents age still use them- so it’s not a totally lost form now, is it? And its easy, it just it. But the price is right- you can’t get EVERYTHING on streaming services, unless you are a hacking genius or don’t mind gritty and grainy watches, so even just the movie rentals make it worth it. I’ve never used Redbox, and I don’t even know of any of the rental boxes around here, so I will have to see how that works, but hey- nothing ventured, nothing lost. It’s always good to try something new.

Just in time for the holidays, for a limited-time only, Walmart is offering five free rentals from their local Redbox with the in-store purchase of an ONN DVD player that only cost $19.96, available on November 1st. That’s less than renting four on-demand movies, making it a great deal for families and friends who are planning their next viewing party.

So head on over to Walmart and see if they have any still in stock. If they do, it’s a gift under $20, and those are hard to come by. Good for someone hard to buy for, moms with little kids, grandparents, and more. Check it out and let me know what you think.

The machine-washable  (hang to dry) lunch bags feature an easy open flap to securely hold their food and insulated storage to keep lunch fresh, Lunch Pets are both cute and functional. The Pets paws even snap together to make a handle or attach to your child’s bike.

Giveaway- Win a Pair of Atom Compression Wear Socks #GiftGuide

Atom Compression Wear has highly comfortable, soft, and brightly colored compression socks and sleeves made with the benefits of milk fiber.  There are so many benefits of compression wear and milk fiber, these will help your tired legs, improve your circulation, and stay up with no endless tugging.

travel

For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I’m a huge fan of compression socks and sleeves and wear them nearly every day. I like the fun colors that Atom offers, and that they come in wide calf sizes as well. While I don’t think my calves are particularly wide, it seems most of the “fun” compression socks and sleeves are made for those with much slimmer calves then I (what can I say, I work out) so it’s good to be able to find them in sizes that fit.

Atom Compression Lanati Milk Fiber Classic Socks are great for athletes, runners, and anyone who plays a lot of sports. They are also perfect for those who spend all day on their feet, and find themselves with tired or swollen legs, ankles, or feet. Pregnant women find relief as well- I wish I had known about compression socks when I was pregnant. 

compression sleeves

I wear the heck out of them when on planes, it helps so much. Compression socks and sleeves really make a difference while flying or spending a long time in the car on a road trip.

I found these to be a little long for me, so I rolled them over at the knee. This did not make them tight or “squeezy”, and they did ease my legs. The sock portion was also a little large for my feet, but again, I also didn’t find it uncomfortable in sneakers, or even while relaxing in slippers or without anything on over them. That happens a lot with compression socks, the foot part is usually too big for me, and I usually do sleeves for that reason. Again, large calves. First world problems, right? But really, I like these a lot, and I’ve worn them quite often.

There are two main styles, Classic and Massage Milk Fiber Compression Socks that you can try to see which you like bettter.  One of you will be able to win a pair of classic socks to try out for yourself. Feel free to enter using the RC code below. Ends Jan. 17, 2019.
