More Gift Cards Than I Thought Possible!

Gift cards are one of my favorite gifts to receive. Whether it’s a gift card for online shopping, a restaurant, a night out at the movies, or something that I can use in my house, I love them all! I enjoy shopping so I think a gift card to a clothing or accessories store would have to rank up there as my favorite.

Some people don’t like to give the gift of gift cards because they don’t feel like it’s as personal as  giving a traditional gift. The truth is that a lot of people love gift cards just as much, if not more, and that you can wrap this up creatively to add a personal touch. For example, I gave a gift card to The Buckle clothing store once and bought a couple of cute bracelets there to wrap around the gift card box.

Load Up On Gifts at Old Navy

ON

 

I shop on OldNavy.com quite frequently and I love the things that they have on there. They have the trendiest clothes at prices that are affordable. I know for a lot of people that have kids don’t like to spend a ton of money on clothes for them because they grow really fast and don’t exactly keep things clean. Well with Old Navy clothing, you can save the money without compromising on style.

You can get gifts for the entire family on this site (or in the store if you prefer). They have men’s, women’s, women’s plus, maternity, kid’s, and infant clothing available for purchase. They also have a great selection of shoes (Old Navy flip flops are a classic and my favorite!!!). Right now, they are also offering 20% off when you use the code SAVE20 through Wednesday, January 29th.

This Bark Control System for Dogs is Great

blog-bark

 

I recently got my dog a kennel. She doesn’t seem to mind it TOO bad but when I put her in it lately, she starts to bark. She eventually calms down but I have neighbors and I don’t want to upset anybody (she’s a pretty loud barker!!!)

I looked online for bark collars to see what I could find. I came across this PetSafe Gentle Spray Bark Control System and think that it looks like a fantastic idea. This is a gentle and humane way to get your dog to quit barking. To use it, you put a battery in the collar and place it around your dog’s neck. When the dog barks, a burst of citronella spray is released. This is an unpleasant odor for dogs and the dog will learn to quit barking.

I think my dog is going to love this “gift”.

 

These Melissa & Doug Deluxe Jumbo Cardboard Blocks Are Great For Kids

Lately I’ve been looking online for great toys for kids. I’m going to a birthday party for a three-year-old in February and want to find the perfect present. I feel like there are so many different electronics and games that involve sitting in front of a screen. I’ve read several articles stating just how dangerous and unstimulating it can be for kids to spend more time sitting in front of a computer, phone, television, or tablet screen rather than playing with actual toys.

I found these Deluxe Jumbo Cardboard Blocks and think they would make a perfect gift for a three-year-old. There are no small pieces (they are rated for children 2+). Kids can use their imagination to build anything they can think up. This set comes with 40 sturdy blocks and it would be easy to add to this collection for the ability to have play with even more blocks!

My Dog is Going to Love This Harry Barker Pet Bed

Harry Barker Pet Bed

 

I love shopping online for great pet accessories for my dog. In my home town, we only have two pet stores and neither of them have a huge selection of dog products. They have plenty of dog food, treats, rawhides and bones but there isn’t a great selection of other items.

I found this Harry Barker Hemp Stripe Dog Bed and I think that it is something that my dog, Keeda, would get a lot of use out of. Right now, she sleeps on the couch or my bed. This can be annoying for my house guests and although I don’t mind, I want to try to break her of this habit.

Are there any websites that have a great selection of pet items and accessories? If you know of any, please share them!
