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!

KinderPerfect Card Game Examples:

Question Card: Before kids, I never thought about _____.
Potential Answer Card: A freezer full of breast milk

Question Card: All I want for Christmas is a day without _____.
Potential Answer Cards: Toddler erections

Question Card: _____ is why I am a failure as a parent.
Potential Answer Cards: Giving him the middle finger behind his back

Totally hilarious, right?!

The card game is similar to Apples to Apples  (kid and family friendly) and Cards Against Humanity (sexual and raunchy). KinderPerfect‘s humor is in between so you can play it with adult friends and family and not worry if someone’s going to get offended.

Custom Engraved Wooden Spoon

A wooden spoon is really a must-have in anyone’s kitchen. So make a wooden spoon special by getting it custom engraved and turning it into the perfect present!

custom-engraved-wooden-spoon-gift

A custom engraved wooden spooncan be displayed on someone’s kitchen counter, adding a personalized and decorative touch to their home.

They’re a classic gift that can be given for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or Christmas. They’re also great as hostess or housewarming gifts.

They can even be used as party favors. Think bridal showers or chili cook-offs.

Not all wooden spoons are created equally. I suggest purchasing a high-quality spoon made of dense wood so it lasts for years and years.

Ideas for what to engrave:

Custom Quote Canvas Art Gift

Everyone has a favorite quote or words to live by. It’s something that inspires us and speaks to our soul.

custom-quote-canvas-art-gift

My favorite quote since college has been “Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory” by General George S. Patton.

I now have a new favorite quote, “Thank you for playing with me” by my son Aiden Jaeger!

Aiden first said it to his grandmother. I told my husband what our son had said and weeks later after an enjoyable One Day Staycation together, he said it to me that night. I’ve repeated that quote myself too.

I love that quote for so many reasons! It shows appreciation to someone for spending time with you, and it’s a reminder to play like a kid again.

Family Motto

It’s not just a quote anymore. It has become our family motto that we say to each other.

I wanted the quote to hang in a permanent place in our home so I created a Custom Quote Canvas Art. It displays the quote in a stylized font on a cool background.

Mattress Topper for a Goodnight’s ZZZ

Know someone in the market for a new mattress but who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money? I have great news! Try a mattress topper!

mattress-topper-for-goodnights-rest-thoughtful-gift-ideaThe mattress industry’s rule of thumb is to purchase a new mattress every seven years.

WOW! I remember my grandparents and parents kept theirs for 25+ years. The springs had to be pushing through before they considered a new mattress.

If memory foam mattress pads and toppers existed back then, I would have purchased one for them! Continue Reading

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

Thoughtful Gifts for Walkers & Runners

Besides quality walking or running shoes, there are some items that walkers and runners should have.

led-safety-lights-walkers-runners-thoughtful-giftThe right pair of socks is very important for both comfort and to prevent blisters. Then they need the right clothing to wick away sweat and to prevent chafing.

After that, accessories, such as ear buds, headbands, sunglasses, water bottles, hydration belts and fitness trackers, can make walking and running a more enjoyable experience.

There is one accessory that is not yet common, but should be because it saves lives. They’re small and lightweight, and they do an excellent job of making walkers and runners highly visible to motorists to avoid potentially deadly accidents.

I’m talking about LED Safety Lights designed for runners and walkers to wear.
