SIGG: We continue to purchase SIGG water bottles every year because of their durability, functionality, and safe materials. Ask Santa to help replace the bottles lost in the school-shuffle with a new bottle filled with a tasty beverage on Christmas morning.

Redbubble: We adore the artistic selection created by Redbubble’s  independent designers.  While the kids are enjoying morning juice, gift the adults a new mug filled with great coffee or spiked eggnog. 🙂

Hydropeptide: We’ve been lucky enough to sample several skin care products from the Hydropeptide line for well over a year now and are officially obsessed.  You can’t go wrong with the anti wrinkle polish and plump peel or the purifying mask.
