One Christmas Bear - Book Review

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 


One Christmas Bear by Anne Vittur Kennedy is a sweet little Christmas book to read to young children. From one to ten, your little one will count down each adventure the polar bear has with all of his arctic friends. They experience a land of Christmas Joy filled with ginger cookies, crunchy candy canes, and angel in the snow, plus so much more fun and excitement! 

I love the illustrations in this book. They are colorful and friendly, each page ready for more. It is such a fun story to read to your little ones and will quickly become a holiday favorite. As your children read along, they will enjoy the sites of holiday goodness and it will help bring in that holiday spirit. This is a great one to have in your stack of Christmas books!!

You can find the board book of One Christmas Bear available for purchase on Amazon for under $10

Find That Perfect Gift While Shopping At Uncommon Goods

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.


It's that time of year again, where everyone is rushing to purchase Christmas gifts for their family and friends, diving in to all that Black Friday/Pre Holiday Shopping! With thousands of online stores, you can purchase gifts from the comfort of your own home, without having to deal with the craziness of other shoppers. 

Uncommon Goods is a great place to find unique items for those in your life. They have been awarded for outstanding customer service since 2007 and rightfully so! You will find several handmade items, upcycled/recycled art pieces, and special artist designs to support each individual... They literally have something for everyone in all kinds of categories. Kitchenware, home goods, tasty treats, nerdy gifts, and more, there are so many options to choose from to find that perfect gift! I did a little Christmas shopping myself! I was able to find all kinds of goodies to check off my gift list.


Know a Taco loving family? Check out this awesome Tortilla Press, where you can make tortillas in your very own kitchen...how authentic! And not to mention...totally delicious. You just need to make the dough, roll into balls, and start pressing. You will have handmade tortillas to enjoy right in the heart of your home. This kit includes a bottle of hot sauce, a pamphlet filled with recipes and history of the tortilla press, and a nice little kitchen towel. It doesn't come in a very cute box though, and did arrive dusty, so you would want to re-box this before it is gifted to someone. Otherwise this is a fun set and would be perfect for those who love tacos!


How about matching taco socks to go with that tortilla press! Isn't this just a perfect gift? Novelty socks are an excellent gift for men. They have so many fun designs to choose from. My husband loves wearing fun socks with his dress clothes so these will be a hit for him! Another enjoyable gift that many seem to love is the gift of coffee. I know I'm a big coffee lover especially when it smells great! These Bourbon infused Coffee Beans are great for those that enjoy Bourbon with their coffee in the morning. This is a unique item that is sure to start some conversations. Pair that with some Beer Shampoo and you have an incredibly fantastic gift for the men or women in your life.


Looking for a cool kids gift? My son loves Cubebots. I know he's going to love the solid cherry-wood Areaware Cubebot this Christmas. He has a nice little collection going and adding this one in will make him ecstatic. This particular Cubebot is larger than the usual bots, standing at 9.5inches tall, bringing an extra height of fun!


And the Mrs. Food Face Plate brings all kinds of fun to your little one's meals. You can use food to design the plate in so many silly ways. It will bring yourself and your children loads of laughter seeing each meal as a masterpiece. We love the Mr & Ms Food Face Plates. You really can add a variety of silliness to each meal, not only adding more fun to your food, but also getting your children to eat some of the foods they might not eat regularly. I say get one for all the kids!


   There are so many items at Uncommon Goods that will provide gift options for Christmas right around the corner. And with every purchase you make, Uncommon Goods will donate $1 to a non-profit of your choice. Check out uncommongoods.com and see what kind of goodies you can find!

BBQ it Up With Rubbin' Right Seasoning

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 


    Made from fresh and high quality ingredients, Rubbin' Right brings you delicious rubs to use on all your BBQ meats. They have a variety of flavors including: All Purpose Rub, Combination, Honey Bourbon, Maple Mesquite, and Chili Fixin's. Each one of these seasonings has their own special taste and is great for all different things. You get a taste from Texas in each of these rubs so you know they have to be good! I love that all of these are also made free of MSG and unnecessary fillers. The company prides themselves on flavor being an essential part in your process of cooking so they don't use a ton of salt either. They have spent a lot of time developing each rub to its utmost purpose, providing the perfect blends to enhance all flavors. 
  
Whether you're grilling or smoking, or using an oven or slow cooker, these rubs bring a party to your any meal. You can use them as a dry rub on any meat, including poultry or fish. You can use them to sprinkle over vegetables, baked potatoes, salads, nachos, beans, ect...you can even use them to flavor popcorn or party mixes. There is a lot more to these rubs than just using on meat! When you need to add some special seasoning to your meal, go to Rubbin' Right and try out their flavors! 

You can purchase Rubbin' Right seasoning at rubbinright.com where you can also find more information as well as a variety of recipes to browse through, photos, and more.
