Christmas Ideas for adults and kids

Before You Start Shopping

I recently started using Ebates when I shop online. If you haven’t heard of them check them out because you may be able to get a little cash back everytime you shop. Basically, you are getting paid to shop!

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

I recently earned $7.50 when I purchased my first Blue Apron Meal Box. I already got a super discount on it and then got the $7.50 rebate. Essentially paying $15 for 2 full meals for my family.

You can use it at major shopping sites but also I’ve used it when I’ve purchased oils at Plant Therapy.

Just get the extension for your browser after you sign up and Ebates will tell you when they have a rebate for you. You will earn $10 after your first online purchase using Ebates.

Refer your friends like I’m referring you and you might make even extra money.

Gifts For Kids


Legos are a great gift for any child. My girls can’t seem to get enough of them and this Lego City Advent Calendar was a real hit. Each year Lego releases a new one. The one pictured is the one we got a few years back.


This is a  movie my girls have requested over and over. Even though the main character is a girl in Christmas Oranges I think boys and girls alike will love it.  It’s a sweet story that makes you appreciate what you have.

Nail Polish

My girls love to paint their nails and this Piggy Paint Nail Polish was their first non-toxic nail polish to try. The name is fun and the colors are bright.
Check out London Butter Brand as a less toxic nail polish for the big girls in your life.


We’ve read hundreds of books to the girls over the years and this was one of their favorites. In fact, they may say the whole Viking Quest Series is their favorite of all series. I even found myself eager to read what would happen next.

Tip: If your kids like audio books I found a less expensive way to get them without having to join Audible. Check out this post where I tell about it.


We’ve had a blast playing Tripoley this year with the girls. The game is simple enough for kids 8 and up but also great fun for adults, too. I suggest getting an extra set of chips to go with it.

Gifts For Adults


If you paid attention to my blog posts you know that using products that are toxic-free are really important to your health. Give the gift of a great tasting toxic free coffee to your friends and family. I think this coffee would even be a great teacher’s gift.

Isagenix Coffee is infused with green tea, coconut oil, and minerals. I drink this coffee every morning and enjoy it with just a little  Kal Stevia.

Essential Oils and Diffusers

Ask any essential oil love and they will agree, you can’t have too many essential oils. I’ve researched a couple new brands this year.
Plant Therapy, Amoli Oils, Rocky Mountain Essential Oils, and Simply Earth are my favorite brands.  They each have unique qualities and are worth checking out. I especially like the Simply Earth Subscription Box.

Essential oil user or newbie will appreciate a new diffuser. Even if they already have one. You simply can’t have too many in your life. Especially the mini ones that are great for sitting next to your bed at night. This one was our the first diffuser and I got this one for my mother-in-law last Christmas.

This one is my daughters’ favorite diffuser.   I noticed it is sold out.  My sister loves this one I got herGrab 2 if you see it under $20. 

This Essential Oils Carrier Stick is also a perfect gift for anyone who uses oils. It saves time and mess especially when you are applying oils to children.


I got one of these  Heavy Duty Flash Light and Stun Guns for my husband and father-n-law last year.  It has very powerful light and the stun gun is nice to have for protection. (obviously, not for children)


Easy To Love, Difficult to Discipline was referred to me by a counselor.  It’s my “go to book” for helping me deal with my girls. It would be a great gift for any parent with young children.
