The ball is available in green or purple and comes with seven free games that encourage physical play, hand-eye coordination, agility and creative thinking. It connects to your device via bluetooth and can be recharged for an hour of play in just 20 seconds with the included battery operated rapid charger.

There are lots of great options to flavor your freshly bubbled water. You can read my full review here.
Countertop Ice Maker — Did you know that a batch of ice can be made in just 8 minutes? The NewAir Countertop Ice Maker not only makes ice super fast but it looks good while doing it! It comes in three stylish colors including bright white, classic black and stainless steel. With a new batch every 8 minutes it will make 33 pounds of ice per day!

Hoorag — Tubular face bandanas like Hoo-Rag can be worn around your neck when you don’t need them and pulled up over your nose and mouth when you do! Hoo-rag isn’t new, in fact they’ve been worn by sportsmen for years but they’ve recently become even more popular due to the necessity of face coverings. They come in a wide selection of awesome designs for men, women and children. My teen son prefers this type of face mask over all of the others. They look cooler and aren’t as easily misplaced since you keep them around your neck when not in use. You can see my full review here.
Groove Ring — Groove Rings are a great option for those that feel naked without their wedding ring but may have a reason they aren’t able to wear a metal ring. Groove Rings are made from breathable silicone which means moisture can escape. They’re super comfortable because they flex and bend. They’re awesome for anyone with an active lifestyle. Whether you’re snorkeling/swimming, working in the yard, playing with kids or working out, Groove Rings are a great options. Priced at $29.95 to $39.95 they’re inexpensive enough to have replaced should you happen to lose one. Better yet, Groove will actually replace your ring for FREE if you lose it! Now that’s a company that truly stands behind their product and commits fully to great customer service! Groove also makes silicone Apple Watch Bands and their newest product is belts! I put this under Gifts for Men because I think it’s hard to find ideas for them but these gifts work for almost anyone on your list!! You can read my full reviews here and here.
Dozop — The Dozop Self Contained Dolly Sleeve is a multipurpose dolly that takes up barely any space. It also doesn’t take any tools to assemble it which makes it really convenient. When you take it out of the box it comes in, it looks like just two pieces. The parts fit inside of each other for compact storage. It doesn’t take up much room even when fully assembled but is a lifesaver and must-have for every home! It makes it so easy to move things without breaking your back! I think a lot of guys like useful gadgets like these and would be appreciative of this practical gift. You can read my full review here.

Cuddle + Kind Dolls —I can’t think of anything more adorable except perhaps the baby it’s intended for than a cuddle + kind doll. It’s the perfect gift for any newborn or toddler this Christmas. These hand knit dolls are heirloom quality meaning they are very well made and designed to last. Artisan knitters in Peru put a tremendous amount of love and care into handcrafting these beautiful dolls, each with their own birthday and favorite quote.

Healing Place Farm — a couple of years I received the most amazing gift box of natural products from Healing Place Farm. Many of the products are now favorites that I use on a daily basis. The owner, Polly Schellinger is a Registered Nurse, Board certified Holistic nurse and is fully educated in essential oils. Polly makes most of the products herself while Juliann, the marketing manager designs and creates the custom labels. Both women are mothers working from home. The Healing Place Farm is located in Wisconsin where locals can purchase the products at the open houses that are held at the farmhouse. Everyone else can shop online at thehealingplacefarm.com. My favorite product is the Pumpkin Salve. It is a lifesaver for my dry lips and cuticles! Hooligans products are a close second — they smell AMAZING. You can’t go wrong with anything from these awesome ladies — you can almost feel the love they put into making them! You can read my full review here.

The bottom speaker part of the cup can be removed and recharged with the included power cord. Choose from a variety of colors. These are a great gift for teens!
