Valentine’s Day Idea #6 January 31, 2011
There are men out there who will understand this but many who will not. When you look in the mirror and you have a killer haircut, you can feel like a new person. And no, SuperCuts doesn’t count. I’ve attached the list of the best salon’s in the country as rated by Elle Magazine. A haircut from one of these salons is not just a haircut, it is an experience. It smells great. They massage your head as they wash your hair. They have the best products. They give you wine or coffee and little munchies (most do anyway). And the best part is, your hair looks like a million bucks when you leave there (and you probably will only spend $100). Great gift, and easy too.

Summer Infant Video Monitor December 9, 2010
I’m sure my brother is going to comment on this post with some high-tech video monitor that you can rig together and speak to your child from the neighbors house while you adjust the lighting and temperature in their room however this video is available at the store along with the 4 others I tried and the 20 others I researched.
The Summer Infant Best View Color Video Monitor with 2.5″ screen has a number of things going for it including 100% digital which makes the transmission clear. And the screen is a nice size which makes viewing easier. It is color during the day and has black and white vision at night.
I guess I also like it better than the Summer Infant Day & Night Handheld Color Video Monitor because it is cooler looking. How very vain of me. They both have similar features and performance but the “Best View” is slimmer and easier to carry around.
Video monitors help you have peace of mind while your child naps/sleeps and I would recommend having one to any new mothers.
The Summer Infant Best View Color Video Monitor with 2.5″ screen can be purchased at Amazon.com and Walmart and runs about $175.
Creative Gift Idea #2 December 5, 2010
Learn to paint with your Nintendo DS? How cool is that. A game that doesn’t involve shooting or driving over things/people, or even better a game that allows children/adults to enjoy a segment of the arts. The software takes advantage of the Nintendo DS’ touch screen. Learn sketching, color theory, painting, and drawing using a variety of “tools” and the ability to mix and dilute colors, save finish products into a gallery, and lessons that build upon each other.
The best part about it is that it is a reasonable $19.99!
