Great Gifts For Recent Graduates At Best Buy!

Two of my cousin's children graduated this Spring and I can't believe how fast time flies. The Booper is just getting ready to start preschool this Fall, but I know his graduation day will come quickly. I love giving gifts that people will actually use and enjoy. Some people believe cash is the best gift for a graduate, and while money is always nice a thoughtful gift will be remembered long after money has been spent. Best Buy has created a helpful list with some gifts to excite the graduate in your family.

Some people love coffee but I love tea! I start every day with a nice hot cup of tea and then usually fix some to take with me as I head out to work. In the past I purchased little plastic cups with plastic lids that were hard to hold because they were hot and the taste got lost in the plastic coated cup. Now I have the perfect replacement! Libre has created a wonderful poly container that is glass lined! The tea keeps it's great flavor and you get to drink from a BPA free glass.

Say "Cheese" For Smiles At Snack Time

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Arla Dofino. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
When it comes to play time the Booper is ready to go. We've been learning lots of new lessons this year about life during play time with cousins and friends. Taking turns and good sportsmanship aren't always the easiest lessons, but play time is the best for teaching them. Kids learn so much through playing and I'm a firm believer in letting kids get their energy out. My little big guy can really work up an appetite while playing with his friends and he's always asking for snacks! I think I was born to be a "Boy Scout" mom since I try to always be prepared. We took a fun trip to the zoo the other day, and I wanted to pack some delicious snacks for our little explorers. When I'm out and about with the Booper I want to keep him nourished, because like so many kids he can get cranky if he's hungry. Packing yummy snacks that will keep the smiles on their faces? Say cheese!

Sharing Just Got Sweeter With TWIX Bites

I received a promotional item in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. See Disclosure. 
Yum! Pay no attention to my frizzy bad hair day selfie. Thank you! 
As the saying goes, "Good things come in small packages" and it's the truth when you pop one of these delectable TWIX unwrapped bites into your mouth. Cookie drizzled with caramel and covered in chocolate..what's not to love? Each little bite holds a crunchy yet gooey vacation for your taste buds! Speaking of buds..who would you share these with? I was nice and let my husband have some. We both enjoyed the same sweet treat we love from TWIX only in smaller poppable bites. Alright, so my husband thought it would be good to crush a few and sprinkle over his frozen yogurt, but I ate my serving plain and yummy as soon as the package arrived. I was nice and left plenty for him and the Booper too.

Foaming Soap Makes Hands Clean With BabyGanics

I received the below mentioned product free for the purpose of review. All views and opinions are my own. See Disclosure. 
As the weather changes to warmer temperatures I'm finding the Booper and I are in and out of the house much more often. He LOVES playing outside. What four year old wouldn't? We go out, we play hard, we get dirty. I don't always give him a bath as soon as we go back in the house, but I've taught him how to wash his hands. Getting the Booper to wash his hands has been easy since he loves using a soap pump. We've been using BabyGanics Fragrance Free Foaming Hand Soap and I think having a foaming soap makes it even more fun for him to wash his hands.

Father's day is just around the corner and moms and children will be on the hunt for the perfect gift for dad. To find the perfect gift for my husband I just try to think of things he would love that maybe he doesn't know about or things he's been wanting but just hasn't wanted to buy for himself. Every person is unique just like every dad has their own style and hobbies. My husband plays guitar so he loves all things music and entertainment. Best Buy is making it easy to find the Latest for the Greatest Dad!
