This sporting goods gift ideas post is part of a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

Father’s Day is coming up and this year I have my eye on sporting goods for hubs.  He loves to fish and camp and just be outside in general, and Bubbles has become increasingly interested in those things, too.  I thought it would be appropriate for her gifts for Daddy to be things they can do together.

If sporting goods are on your list, too, Cabela’s has lots of great options.  They’ve even put together a “Tents & Tackles” gift guide for you to make it extra-easy.

I received a Keter MasterCart Rolling Tool Box in order to facilitate my review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

My love for all things organization ins’t confined to the interior of the house with pretty bins or closet storage systems.  I also love outdoor organization items, especially for the garage.  I’ll own up to my inner geek and admit that when they were still on TV, I would watch those garage makeover shows on the home improvement channels.  I always wished they would come to my house!

Fortunately, hubby is of the same mindset when it comes to keeping the garage organized.  One of the first things he did when we moved into this house was get the garage set up.  Racks and shelves, hooks on the walls – lots of ways to keep it tidy and keep things in place. Continue reading »

I received Idea Village products in order to facilitate my post.  All words and opinions are my own.

Growing up I always loved those “As Seen On TV” items.  They always seemed so interesting, and often so necessary to my daily life.  Granted I was about 10 at the time, but still.

I didn’t really have my own credit cards back then, either, so I didn’t get to order too many of those “must have” products.  But when you become an adult and you’re earning your own money, you get to make choices you might not have been able to as a kid.  And one of those choices was to pick up some of those “As Seen On TV” items that had been so tantalizing in my youth.

Idea Village Flashlight Friends - Penguin

It may be genetic, as Bubbles recently caught a commercial for Flashlight Friends and decided that she really wanted one.  I thought they were kind of cute, too, and hoped that it would help her sleep better if she knew she had a light she could turn on at will.  That ended up being wishful thinking, but they’re still really cute.

2011 Holiday Gift Guide – Gifts For Him

One gift idea that fits almost anyone – especially those hard-to-shop-for guys on your list – is a gift basket.  And you really can’t go wrong with a basket of snacks and other edible goodies.

Ballreich’s can provide you with a variety of gift baskets for men full of tasty snacks for a number of different occasions.  They are a family-owned company that was founded in Tiffin, OH, in 1920 by Fred Ballreich and his wife Ethel.  They called their chips “Marcelled”, which means wavy, after the popular ladies’ wavy hairstyle of the time.
