Don’t just buy gifts to buy gifts, buy gifts with a purpose. There is nothing more frustrating than not knowing what to get those in your life, but did you ever notice that the holidays bring out the best gifting solutions? Today I will shower you with holiday gifting ideas that I have tested, and personally love. I don’t like receiving gifts that are just given because someone could not figure me out. The more personal gifts are great for those that you have spent so much time with in your lives. Remember getting someone a gift that reminds them of a time you spent together, shows you care and remember. Bags of popcorn, delicious crumble cakes and of course ways to charge up their lives, an ingenious way to slice up pizza, open cans without sharp edges being left, and get ready to create all kind of printable DIY’s, as well as print out those projects, directions, photos and more. Have someone on your list with food allergies, no worries I have that covered too, as a mom of a child with severe food allergies I have found something that you will LOVE. Let’s take a look at some Holiday Gifting Ideas as I lavishly live the holidays out loud.
The Coffee Cake Cake from Hahn’s Old Fashioned Coffee Cake
An easy go-to snack during the holidays or a beloved reminders of years gone by when your mom used to bake these for you. Coffee cake is just a large part of the holidays and gifting one is perfect. Hahn’s Old Fashioned Coffee Cake offers, all natural fresh ingredients and they use an old family recipe.
Check out the one that we had sent to us: This is a sampler that let us try the different flavors, and Mmmmm is all I can say!
Have someone on your list that does not want the cake but loves crumbs? Here are some delectable little bites called, “Can Of Crumbs” and I can tell you yum from beginning to end!
Hahn’s offers the original coffee cake as well as best sellers like the Apple Crumb Cake , Mocha Cappuccino Cake and the Can of Crumbs, just the topping of the crumb cakes. Who exactly is Hahn’s? In 1983 Mr. and Mrs. Hahn retired from their jobs as schoolteachers and began following their passion and baking their crumb cake from an old family recipe out of their kitchen. Soon, much of New York was clamoring for their delicious crumb cake. Hahn’s still uses that same old–fashioned family recipe and only the best natural ingredients.
Get Poppin’ with SkinnyPop
So, there is snacking and there is snacking and SkinnyPop Popcorn get’s it just right! My son with food allergies can not have too many snacks but bring on the SkinnyPop, so it is by the case we go! There are a lot of great flavors and gifting popcorn is always a trendy idea! SkinnyPop just is perfection as it is not jammed with tons of ingredients, just with simple ingredients that keep the taste up and the junk out!
It’s so hard to find Allergen-free foods but when you do, you love on them and you make sure you give it to everyone you know. This is such yummy popcorn and it has no artificial ingredients, it is NON GMO, Glute Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Preservative Free, and has Zero trans fat!
Pizza SLYCE‘d Their Way Your Slyce
Who has a family that can never agree on pizza toppings? If your kids are like mine, the fact that even ONE Piece of pepperoni overlapped onto a piece that was just supposed to be cheese is enough to be the buzz kill for pizza night! Problem solved for those little picky eaters, meet the YOUR SLYCE which is a specialty tool that helps you to create your own pizza slice each and every time by separating every cut and cutting through with PERFECT slices!

The Accessory For Traveling And Medicines
Get ready to Style Up your RX, this is just so cool! This is The Style RX designer pill box case and it was designed for the woman who values her style and her health.Keep in control of the meds you need when you need them and stay on-the-go. This is for those of us who don’t want to pull out that plastic bag or some foil, lol!
Completely discreet and could even be left on your desk or in the car, no one knows what it is, just you! The magnetic closures makes sure everything stays tight and of course your days are marked so — it is Prescribed for we fashionistas. RX for fashion! I took the marked box with the days of the week out, but that is IN that floral box, I just wanted you to see!
The Car Care Pro
We all have them in our homes, the one who has the car that just has to be at its best no matter what. Dings won’t do, and parking in lots is usually 20 miles away(slight exaggeration) to gain entrance to the store. Give them No Ding. No worries about parking next to other cars, no worries about other cars parking next to them, No Ding will protect the opening and closing and close calls for door dings. Think of this as a car bumper for the car door. No tools necessary for installation but what a great way to let them enjoy their particular car care. Available online and at Walmart.
LEVEL off While Bathing & Showering
I loved this option it is Level Naturals: Shower Soap, Bath Bomb, Shower Bomb. The Bath Bomb is aromatherapy, moisture and decadence all wrapped up in one. The Shower Bomb: Just steam it up with our shower bomb, exfoliating bar and minty Peppermint volcano soap packed full of pumice and 100 percent natural and pure peppermint essential oil.
Open That Wine
There’s nothing like a good glass of VINO and the Ozeri EXTRAVO Stainless Steel Electric Wine Opener with Auto Activation opens those bottles with effortless operation. The stainless steel looks sleek, offers a foil cutter to remove the wine bottle seals. Just by pushing down on the wine bottle the opener is activated and begins to open the bottle. One charge opens up to 60 bottles, has a built in rechargeable battery and is cordless so you can open a bottle anywhere.
Stocking Stuff With Band Aid
My kids love these, and they use Band Aids just to wear them, I bet your kids do too! These are perfect for kids of all ages and of course good to have on hand for all those holiday boo-boos when opening holiday. Compeed Blister Cushions are the newest product to relieve blister pain instantly, so feel free to wear your holiday party shoes this season, and not feel the pain!

Open Those Can
With the holidays comes cooking and loads of kitchen time! Here is the Fast & Easy way to open a can hands-free! The TouCan. There will be no razor sharp edges on the can or the lid and all you have to do is place on the can and press the button. The TouCan works its magic and offers hands-free operation of can opening. The TouCan clamps onto the outside of the can lid and leaves the edges smooth. A little bonus with the TouCan is that it will also help you open jars and put pop tabs. This is a great find for those that can not manage a can opener due to arthritis or hands that just don’t have enough strength!

Tarah Jade just released their brand new eco-friendly candle collection this month – featuring organic soy that can also be used as a hand moisturizer after!
