Artisanal Ice Cream in Fun Flavors

Really good ice cream in fun flavors. That’s what I want. Any time of year.

jenis-artisanal-ice-cream-giftOne of my favorite flavors is goat cheese ice cream. Hey. Don’t knock it until you try it. Trust me.

One time a friend bought me a pint of Jeni’s Goat Cheese with Red Cherries. Absolute heaven!

Have you heard of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams? It’s an artisan ice cream company, which means real people use real (vs. synthetic) ingredients to make the highest quality ice cream.

The company is known for always coming out with fun, inventive flavors!

iFLY Indoor Skydiving

I’ve always wanted to skydive but jumping out of an airplane just didn’t make a lot of sense the older I became.

Ifly-indoor-skydiving-thoughtful-gift-ideaMy sister-in-law gave me a gift certificate to iFLY so I could fulfill my dream closer to the ground!

Indoor Skydiving

iFLY is indoor skydiving that simulates true free fall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel.

Their motto of “It’s where the dream of flight becomes a reality” really happened for me!

At age 65 I’m no spring chicken (a phrase my mother-in-law would say) but there have been lots of elderly people who have been brave enough to skydive.

I hoped the wind tunnel would help me decide if I was just satisfied doing a simulation or if I needed to do the real thing. Continue Reading

Peek-A-Boo Dog Lamp | Animal Lover Gift

Have you ever thought about a gift for someone but didn’t have a clue what to give?

Yeah, me too but when I see it, I know it!

dog-lamp-thoughtful-gift-ideaThat’s exactly what happened when I spotted this cute decorative peek-a-boo dog lamp at the Oklahoma Designer Show House.

Randy and I enjoy spending Sunday afternoons walking through beautiful homes with the newest floor plans, decorating trends, and unique furnishings.

While looking at the latest designer show home, I saw the “when I see it, I know it” gift.

Lotto Ticket Get Well Card

Need an easy peasy fun gift idea for someone who is ill or in the hospital? Choose a get well card and insert lotto tickets!

Nothing lifts someone’s mood better than dreaming about how to spend the money if you win!get-well-card-lotto-tickets-thoughtful-gift-idea

Gift of Possibly Winning Big

My friend, Dick, had triple bypass heart surgery and I wanted to send a cheerful gift. I wrote in the card “possibility of a winning lotto ticket” because I won just a few weeks before his surgery.

I shared my experience in the card. I explained the whole episode of asking my husband to pull into a gas station as I wanted to check my ticket. My husband did his usual eye rolling thing because I have never won more than a few dollars. Continue Reading

Purse with Pursonality

For my birthday, my sister-in-law gave me a Betsey Johnson purse. Talk about a Purse with Pursonality! It’s definitely a conversation piece!

Everywhere I go, someone will comment, “Is that a smiley face?” I reply, “Yes, it is!” and we both share a wonderful, big smile that turns into laughter.purse-with-pursonality-betsey-johnson-smiley-face-thoughtful-gift-idea

I’ve never had a purse make me so happy or random strangers! It’s an amazing feeling.

Women for various reasons have a love/hate relationship with their purses. Purses can be too small because many of us carry way to much stuff.

Or too big and we dig around for our ringing cell phone until the caller hangs up! Some purses have too many zippers and you can’t remember which pocket you placed your keys.

Purse With Pursonality

Since I’ve received my purse with pursonality, I’m over any trivial annoyance. It’s funny how things change when you have a different perspective. Continue Reading

KinderPerfect | Cards Against Humanity for Parents

Parenting is tough sometimes but it’s also hilarious, especially if you throw in some sarcasm and political incorrectness. KinderPerfect is a card game for adults who enjoy laugh-out-loud humor about the challenges of raising kids.

The game is simple. Each round, one player lays down a red question card and every other player lays down their funniest white answer card.

The person with the funniest answer card wins and gets to keep the red question card. The person who collects the most red cards wins the game!

Jumbo Magnifying Glasses for PreK+

- - Birthday, Christmas, Kids

Little ones are so inquisitive and love to explore. “What’s that?” is a question parents and grandparents hear all the time. Let children satisfy their own curiosity with magnifying glasses.

jumbo-magnifiers-thoughtful-gift-ideaMagnifying glasses allow kids to see clearly in great detail butterflies, bugs, flowers, leaves, blades of grass, sea shells, rocks and a whole lot more. They will see the world around them like never before!

Pretty much everything under a magnifying glass is much more fascinating don’t you think?

It’s pure wonderment the first time a child sees an object through a magnifying glass. Just watch them place the magnifier over the object and then move it away, over and over again. They will be in awe and probably ask you, “How does that happen?” so be ready with your answer. Continue Reading

Make a Splash With a Mermaid Tail Blanket

Most girls and women I know love to snuggle under a warm blanket on the couch to watch a movie, favorite TV show, or if like me, a Thunder game.

mermaid-tail-blanket-thoughtful-gift-ideaInstead of the usual boring blanket, make a beautiful splash with a mermaid tail blanket!

When I came across Mermaid Tail Blankets, I immediately thought of my cold-natured sister-in-law because she always has a blanket laying on a chair ready for use when watching TV.

I knew she would have fin (I mean fun) covering up under a mermaid tail blanket so I ordered one for her birthday.

If I had granddaughters, the mermaid blankets would definitely go under the Christmas tree!

The Gift of Song | Singing Lessons

Is there something you have always wanted to learn to do? I love to sing. I just couldn’t carry a tune so I decided to take singing lessons.

gift-of-song-singing-lessons-thoughtful-gift-ideaI found a voice teacher at a local university who gave private lessons. She was surprised when I told her my request. 

“I want to learn how to sing one song – Fever.”

I’ve heard it all my life on the radio and in live musicals.

Peggy Lee made the song famous, and my favorite rendition is by Michael Buble.

It is one sexy song!

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that’s so hard to bear

You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night
