My daughter has been obsessed with stuffed animals, horses, and pillows for several years now. She is always asking for a new stuffed animal or fancy pillow every time we go into a store. If she sees one, she asks for it! Of course, she doesn't want your typical bed pillow - she loves the ones that are different shapes; hearts, flowers, crayons... just to name a few pillows from her vast collection that covers her bed!
When she gave me her Christmas list for this year I wasn't surprised to see the following three items on her list: a horse, stuffed animals, and a pillow. Then it hit me! Why not give her an animal body pillow and combine all three items on her list into one amazing present?
"Curl up with our Pinto Pony Body Pillow and relax in snuggly comfort. It's
crafted with super-soft, super-dense "fur" fibers. Beaded eyes give it an
expressive face and lots of personality. A welcome gift for any age. Sacks of
beans sewn into the midsection and hooves add weight and girth. Poly-acrylic.
Spot clean." When my order arrived I couldn't wait to open it. As I pulled the pinto pony body pillow from its box, I couldn't believe how big, soft and cuddly it was! In fact, I had to pet it and squeeze it myself! As I was holding it, I knew that I had found the perfect gift for my daughter! When she opens her package on Christmas morning - it's going to put a huge smile on her face!
Plow and Hearth also has a few other animal body pillows that are just as adorable: labrador, cat, bear, golden retriever, and spaniel! They also come in a variety of different colors. Any one of them would make the perfect addition to your household, and the perfect gift!
Christmas is less than three weeks away, and whether
you're ready or not, the holiday season is upon us once again. The
holiday season is suppose to be full of happiness, cheer and joy. But
for many, the holiday end up being stressful and disheartening. I'm
here to tell you that they don't have to be, you really can have a
stress free holiday and actually enjoy holiday shopping!
My 10 Tips For Smarter Holiday Shopping and Gifting:
1. Avoid the holiday rush by shopping early! You
won't have to deal with long lines and cranky holiday shoppers. You
also avoid having to spend a large amount of money all at once. By
shopping early, the expense is spread out over a longer period of time,
which is easier on the checkbook!
2. Shop clearance and sales!
I shop for gifts all year long, literally. I shop clearance sales and
get great gifts for a fraction of the cost. I save as much as 90%.
3. Think outside of the box!
You can find great gifts in unexpected places. You don't have to shop
at the "regular" stores like Target, Wal-Mart and the mall. I've found
great gifts in grocery stores, swap meets and even Office Depot! These
days, grocery stores carry a wide variety of gift items, including gift
cards to a variety of retailers and restaurants.
Shopping for my husband, dad, and brother is always difficult, because they already have everything they want and they don't really need anything. Selecting
holiday presents for a man may be one of the most daunting tasks a
woman has ever faced. Men can be extremely picky when it comes to buying
certain items like clothes and shoes, and you can forget about picking
up that little trinket you saw last week.
This "gift ideas for men" list was originally shared on Being Frugal and Making it Work December 2012, but now is the perfect time to share it again!
Be an awesome
wife, girlfriend, daughter or sister this Christmas and give one of the ten hottest gifts that men really
want this holiday season:
– For a personalized gift, buy a pair of tickets for an upcoming
concert or sports game. Most men love to be involved in a crowd at a fun
event. If he has mentioned a band or a basketball matchup he wants to
see, purchase a pair of tickets for the show. He will adore you for
being so thoughtful, and he’ll appreciate it even more if he gets to
enjoy the event with you.
– Whether his laptop is broken or he needs a new cell phone,
electronics are always at the top of his wish list. Stores like Best Buy
and Walmart offer deep discounts on all types of electronics before
Christmas so consider what he would like the most. Think about what
technology he uses frequently, or ask him if you’re not sure.
– Buy his favorite movie or a boxed set of a television series on DVD.
If your man does not own many movies and prefers to watch online,
consider a subscription to Netflix or Hulu Plus. Then, he can watch all
the shows and movies he wants!
I know that the holidays can be stressful and often times puts a pinch in the pocket book. That's why I like to look for frugal gift ideas online, and I love sharing them with my friends and family so that everyone can take advantage of the great deals as well!

I can't even begin to imagine how many hours I have spent throwing a frisbee around the yard, at the park, and on the beach over the years. Growing up, it was one of our favorite outdoor summer activities while at home, camping, on the beach, at the park, and while hanging out with friends. Now, I enjoy playing frisbee with my children and watching them play together as well.
The Aerobie Skylighter flying disc takes the fun to a new level - especially after dark! The Skylighter flying disc is great for those afternoons at the park and enjoyable on those darker evenings of summer and fall. Once the sun goes down you can turn on the light module to illuminate the disc for dazzling evening play!
That's right! This awesome flying disc lights up! Extend the fun of
playing with an Aerobie flying disc into the night with the new Skylighter
lighted disc. Its bright LEDs illuminate the clear center and the translucent
colored rim to make the entire Skylighter appear bright in the night sky.
