2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Welcome to the home of the Holiday Gift Guide here on Six Time Mommy. 2018 will be the third year and I look forward to sharing all the amazing products I’ve tried over the past year that I think will be an amazing addition to your Holiday shopping list!

NOT YOUR AVERAGE GIFT GUIDE:

This Holiday Gift Guide won’t be like the others. This gift guide will only contain products I’ve used personally here on Six Time Mommy or offline, and think would make an AMAZING gift this Holiday season. I’ve reviewed many products on Six Time Mommy, all of which I love for very different reasons – but this guide is going to focus on strictly the Holidays and which products I think would make the absolute BEST gifts.

This year the categories are Kids & Baby, Tweens & Teens, Family, Pets and House & Home. Be sure to check back weekly as new items are added every week until December 20th!


If I haven’t reviewed your products yet and you’d like your product to be considered for Six Time Mommy’s 1st Holiday Must Have Guide please contact me asap! sixtimemommy@gmail.com (please note: I am in Canada)

Sleepy, The Goodnight Buddy Book by Drew Daywalt, Illustrated by Scott Campbell:

A hilarious twist on a classic bedtime story: When a boy who routinely refuses to go to bed gets a talkative stuffed animal, the tables are turned!

It is impossible not to crack up while reading this all-dialogue bedtime story by Drew Daywalt, the New York Times #1 best-selling author of The Day the Crayons Quit. Scott Campbell’s expressive illustrations bring home the hilarity. Roderick hates going to bed, and the young boy has become quite resourceful in coming up with ways to delay the dreaded hour when the lights must go out. Roderick’s loving parents–fed up with the distractions and demands that have become his anti-bedtime ritual–decide to get him a stuffed animal to cuddle with and help him wind down. However, Sleepy quickly proves to be a bit high-maintenance. Just when we fear the night may never end, Sleepy’s antics become too exhausting for Roderick to bear.

HOUSE AND HOME:

Philips LED Lighting: Philips Lighting, the global leader in lighting, has designed LEDs that are easy on the eyes, In addition to being comfortable for the eye, LEDs have a long lifespan, which means an average of over a decade of energy savings that help save the environment, too. Something I feel very strongly about and am happy to have in my home.

As the world leader in lighting, Philips Lighting commissioned global research. Key findings include:

  • With children spending a significant amount of time under bright, artificial light, eyesight is the top concern of parents when it comes to their child’s health and well-being as well as their academic performance.
  • Parents take a keen interest in their children’s eyesight with over half (52 percent) worried about how well they see/their eyesight closely followed by school performance (51 percent), stress levels and mental health (50 percent) and sleep (49 percent).
  • Over two thirds (68 percent) of parents believe that quality lighting is vital to a child’s performance at school and almost all parents (96 percent) believe that it is important for their child to get natural daylight.
  • In an average day, children spend just over four hours a day under bright artificial light and three hours in front of a screen. With Philips LEDs, children can concentrate on reading and study with less risk.
