With the holidays just around the corner now, I wanted to share with you some of my last minute gift and entertaining must haves!

Starting with gifts…

Moms like me are looking for gifts that not only entertain but enhance their child’s learning and playtime. Noggin is that just that gift. It’s Nickelodeon’s digital education service that helps kids learn while having fun with their favorite characters. It teaches positive behaviors and gives families a chance to build strong bonds through co-play. Parker loves it!

If you have kids a little older like 8 and up, they will love the Beyblade SpeedStorm Motor Strike Battle Set by Hasbro. It’s a spinning top battling toy that has everything needed for battle including the first ever motorized Bey-Stadium, 2 right/left spin launchers, and 2 spinning tops. It pairs competitive social play with strategic thinking and creativity.

Now what kid wouldn’t want this! The Echo Show 5 Kids, is an Alexa enabled smart display that’s designed just for kids. Kids can ask Alexa to play videos, help with homework, and make video calls to approved contacts. There are easy-to-use parental controls and the device comes with a year subscription to Amazon Kids Plus.

Switching gears to entertaining…

Asian flavors are all the rage right now that’s why I love the Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce. Lee Kum Kee makes it easy for you to enjoy authentic Asian-inspired flavors from home, in minutes. The hoisin sauce is sweet with a hint of umami flavor, perfect for dipping, stir-frying, and marinating like with these Sticky Hoisin Roasted Veggies, a really great twist to traditional veggies.

A holiday pizza wreath is sure to impress! I’m making mine with HERDEZ Avocado Hot Sauce. The new hot sauce is made with real avocados and has a unique, tangy flavor to enhance any dish, no matter the cuisine. It has a mild to medium heat and unlike other hot sauces, it has a smooth and creamy texture you can use to enhance your sauces, dips, and recipes from eggs to salads.

There you have it! Happy Holidays everyone!
