Holiday Gift Guide for Girls 6-12 (Top 10 Picks)

When thinking of what to get my oldest granddaughter for Christmas, my mind immediately goes to several areas she loves such as art, games, books, and CATS! Oh how she loves cats. So in comprising my holiday gift guide for children aged 6-12 (she is 8), these are my Top 10 gift idea suggestions. These are all products I know my granddaughter will use and enjoy.


1. Art. She loves art. She loves to create, and whether that means drawing, painting, or building, she's  all in for it. iHeartArt from Bright Stripes has some great sets available that are also very affordable. The metallic watercolors and gel pens above are two of my favorites because they have glitter! She is a BIG fan of glitter. What little girl wouldn't love to receive a huge set of pens that write in neon, shiny glitter and pastels?! And how very exciting to have your paint be metallic and saturated with sparkles. As a child that is magical (and admittedly, it's even cool to see/use when you are an adult). Creations are endless when you spark imagination with products like these.

For the Budding Artist Who Loves Sparkles! iHeartArt

 Disclosure: I received a complimentary product or a discount to apply towards the purchase of one.


A lot of us give craft items to the kiddos on our holiday shopping lists, and I am one of those moms/grandmas. Imagine the surprise this year, however, when my baby grand opens her gifts and finds that her paint and pens from Bright Stripes iHeartArt are infused with sparkles!! She loves sparkles, and that makes her a girl after my own heart because so do I.

How Vegans Can Ensure They Hit Their Fitness Goals

 Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

In many ways, getting the balance of vitamins you need as a vegan can be a lot easier since fruit and veg tend to be packed with them. However, there are ways that being a vegan can be harder, especially when it comes to maintaining a well-rounded diet. This is going to apply to the foods that can help you get fit, as well.


You need to be ready for diet, nutrition, and exercise to require more prep work and more attention. As such, here, we’re going to look at the essential tips you might need to ensure that you’re getting all the nutrition in your diet that can help you work out and see the results you want.

Managing your diet doesn’t mean trying to lose weight or alter your body shape. It should be about making sure your body has everything it needs to function to the best of its capacity. Feeding yourself a healthy and balanced diet will ensure that you give your body all the nutrients and substance it needs to get by. It can help you to maintain your health and promote a sense of overall well being. So, to achieve this, where should you start? Here are a few suggestions that should get the ball rolling in the right direction.

Limited Edition Steelbook Christmas Specials Collection

Disclosure: I received a free product or discount code to use towards a purchase. All opinions, however, are genuine.


When I was a kid, and maybe some of you remember, you had to find out which night these shows were on and make sure you were planted firmly in front of the TV so you didn't miss it! It came on one night, and one night only and if you missed it, you weren't going to get to see it for the whole season. Can you imagine a season without Frosty the Snowman or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? No? Nor could I! Thankfully, I never missed one, and now at 51-years-old, I still enjoy them every bit as much as I did when I was a child. The difference now is that I can view them whenever I want because they are on DVD. Imagine my glee when I saw that Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has put out a limited edition steelbook 5-movie Blu-Ray DVD collection. Now this is a perfect addition to add to our home...and the home of every single person in my family who has a child young enough to enjoy it. ;)  Let's introduce a new generation to the joy of these Christmas Classics.

Turntable Lab Announces Peanuts Collaboration

 This is not a sponsored post. I am just sharing because I love Charlie Brown.


When my generation grew up there wasn't any and every show you wanted to see at your fingertips or on DVD. You had to tune in for the once-a-year special and Charlie Brown and the Peanuts were always symbolic of the holidays. It was exciting to watch, "The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," and then the best of the best, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." To this day, I still get excited about them when I come across them on TV or when we decide to pull out the DVD.
