Mother's Day Gift Guide - Heat Holders Socks

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Looking for a Mother's Day gift idea for the mom who is always cold? Or maybe for one that likes to be comfy and cozy?! Then I have the perfect gift idea!

HEAT HOLDERS Socks!

Internationally recognized as the world’s warmest sock, Heat Holders® socks are over 7x warmer than regular cotton socks and 3x warmer than ordinary thermal socks.


Heat Holders® are specially developed with cashmere-like acrylic yarn which provides high performance insulation against the cold with superior moisture breathing abilities. Your feet are staying warm and dry all day. With Heat Holders®, you can give the perfect gift of warmth! Heat Holders® hats, gloves, or socks make for a fun and thoughtful stocking stuffer, or the perfect holiday gift for a loved one, friend or colleague.

We own a cabin way up north Minnesota and it has gotten as low as -40 degrees at night! We work a lot outside and like to enjoy winter sports like snowmobiling, ice fishing and four-wheeling. But we HATE cold feet!
I am so excited to now own Heat Holders socks and I never have to worry about cold feet again! I wore the super fuzzy purple pair last weekend on a cold and damp day and it was like walking around in heaven! I didn't want to take them off!

I also love that they offer different warmths of the socks - Original (which is the warmest), Lite and Ultra Lite. That makes them great for every occasion!

Don't like cold feet??!! Get Heat Holders socks today!

You can purchase Heat Holders socks from their online store.

MagStix by BizyBeez

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


One of my older kids' favorite toys to build with are magnet blocks - they allow their imagination to build anything and it is easy and fun!

But as a preschool teacher, most magnet toys and blocks I put out for the kids to play with were frustrating and too complicated and they just weren't interested! So when I saw a new kind of magnet block - MagStix by BizyBeez I was really interested to try them with my preschoolers!

I liked these MagStix for my preschoolers for several reasons! Unlike other magnetic toys, this 41-piece magnetic building set comes with a portable playboard that can be used as a building base anywhere — on the floor, table, or lap while traveling in the car. Second, the chunky tactile pieces give kids ages three and older a sense of calm and focus. That’s incredibly valuable to parents of children on the spectrum that love to zoom in on objects that are visually pleasing. Again and again, MagStix bright colors and rotating wheels lead to hours of quiet, brain-building play.


Made of safe, sturdy non-toxic plastic, the stacking pieces are easy to grip and squeeze. For grownups, the multi-piece set is durable and easy to clean. Snap-on wheels -- included in each kit -- take creativity to another level, allowing preschoolers and elementary-aged kids to create wildly imaginative trains, cars and other vehicles. When play is done, all pieces are tucked away in the bonus storage bag.


MagStix have only been around a short time but already they are stacking up prestigious awards:

2018 Parents’ Choice Recommended

2018 Dr. Toy’s Best Picks Award

2018 Memphis Parent Toy Guide

Special Needs Resource Foundation of San Diego

Cincinnati Family Magazine Top Editor Pick


I really like the base they include that gives children an easy place to start building! My preschoolers love having a base for their building projects and most magnet blocks don't have this!

I also like the size of these MagStix for smaller hands and the bright colors make it attractive to play with for my preschoolers!


MagStix are a fun first magnet block toy for younger ages and beyond. They inspire imaginations to build and learn as they play!

You can purchase MagStix by BizyBeez for $69.99 on Amazon.com

Carthage.Co Stoneware Company

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.



My favorite dishes to use in my kitchen are my stoneware! They look great and they bake well!

So if you are on the hunt for stoneware, let me introduce you to one of my new favorite stoneware companies: Carthage.Co! They offer exquisite, ethically-sourced pottery made by Tunisian artisans, which is brought directly to your table. There’s no shipping of raw materials to factories to make the same mainstream product over and over again. Carthage.Co works as a direct to consumer channel so you get the same high-end products at a fraction of a retail store’s price.

Stoneware pieces include plates, bowls, bakeware, serverware and drinkware that come in several collections highlighting North African beauty in a modern way. These collections not only inspire a uniquely curated tabletop aesthetic, they empower the Tunisian artisans who make each piece and keep the tradition of their rich history in ceramics alive. Additionally, Carthage.Co products are microwave and dishwasher safe and lead free.


I absolutely love my two new pieces of stoneware from Carthage.Co. I am a huge fan of stoneware and these have really impressed me! I love that they are lead-free and made personally by Tunisian artists!


I used the cake pan for the first time on Sunday for my daughter's birthday cake. The cake cooked perfectly and came out of the pan nicely! The cake pan was easy to wash and looked great - all at the same time!


I also love the deep red and texture of the red serving bowl. It is great for salads, vegetables or whatever else you like to serve for dinner!

Looking for new stoneware for your kitchen? Look no further than Carthage.Co!

You can purchase all Carthage.Co stoneware from their website.
