Mom & Dad Gift Guide 20142014-Mom-Dad-Gift-Guide-563x1024


1. timi & leslie Dawn Diaper Bag
Just because we are moms, does not mean we shouldn’t make a fashion statement when we leave the house. The diaper bag is a key essential when running errands and traveling with our young ones, why not get one that’s not only stylish, but one that is made of quality and leaves you organized and not overwhelmed looking for items when duty calls. I am obsessed with my Dawn diaper bag from timi & leslie and recommend it to every mom. Even if your children are out of diapers, this bag holds extra clothes, drinks, snacks, cell phone, wallet, makeup bag and more, without being completely oversized.

Timi & Leslie Dawn Convertible Diaper Bag Caution: only wear this bag if you don’t mind getting tons of compliments! It’s made from easy to clean faux leather (PVC free) and features our custom hardware in a gold finish. Dawn comes with many functional and fashionable accessories and features: A cross body, adjustable detachable strap so you can wear it hands free whenever you need to; Our specially designed changing pad with a front mesh pocket where you can store your diapers, wipes and creams when you need to make a quick diaper change trip; A stylish clutch that you can use as your purse (who wants to carry a purse and a bebe bag?) with interior credit card slots and an inside zipper pocket; An insulated bottle tote to keep your babies bottles warm or cool; Matching stroller straps so you can hang your diaper bag from your stroller; Zippered clothes sac to keep your wet or dirty clothes contained; Water resistant, light colored lining so you can easily see everything in your bag; Six interior organizational pockets; Inside key fob – never lose your keys!

4. Isabelle Grace Jewelry
Isabelle Grace has a huge variety of personalized stamped jewelry which is perfect for moms wanting a more personal touch. Add initials, full names, birthdays, birthstones and more. If you can think it, Isabelle Grace probably has it.

5. Chateau Bakery Cookies
If I can recommend one delicious treat to give this holiday season it would be the Clair de Lune cookies from Chateau Bakery. Everything from the texture, taste, and quality is incredible. Clair de Lune is a delicate cookie that surprises with a unique taste. Buttery and flaky, grainy in texture, it simply melts in your mouth, leaving you with a tingling, subtle aftertaste of salt

What I love about this company is that while they have carefully crafted and refined their recipe over generations, their cookies are based on traditional baked goods that exist in similar forms in many parts of the world. They also use just 5 ingredients: Cane Sugar, Flour, Butter, Sea Salt and Vanilla. In a time where many ingredient lists are long and include products that are sometimes hard to pronounce, let alone understand, they believe that using a small number of traditional ingredients will produce a better taste. All of their ingredients go through a rigorous selection process. They use only 100% cane sugar, their butter is from hormone free milk, and their sea salt is harvested from the only living sea salt bed in North America and is 100% pure.

Just one bite and you will see why it made the top five of our gift guide!

6. Miraqueen Professional Curling Iron, Curling Wand, Hair Curler with Ceramic Curling Chamber
The Miraqueen Professional Curling Iron is the perfect gift for her! I know that I struggle with taking the time to do my hair because it takes so long and with two children I just do not have the time. The Miraqueen is a great hair curler with 3 heat levels and 4 timer settings, auto power off. Hot air wand with LED screen- displays timer, temperature, and curl direction. It has over 500 five start reviews online!

7. Housekeeper
Do we need to say anymore? Not only is this at the top of all of us here at Simply Real Moms, when asked in a group of about 100 moms, this was on 90% of their lists. Even if the housekeeper comes once a week, we deserve a break, don’t we?

8. Meal Service
Life as a mom can be extremely busy. There are plenty meal service companies out there that deliver fresh frozen foods straight to your door. All we have to do it pop it in the oven and dinner is served. Most are healthy as well. Why not send the mom in your life with a month’s supply?

9. Clarisonic Mia 3
The Clarisonic facial brush is probably one of the best things I have ever owned. It is truly like a trip to the day spa every morning and night when I was my face. Cleansing is the essential first step in a healthy skin care ritual. The patented Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Brush uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to deeply cleanse the skin far more effectively, yet more gently, than traditional superficial cleansing or simple rotating brushes. The result is noticeably smoother, more radiant skin.


10. Kinkajou Bottle Cutter Deluxe Kit
The Kinkajou bottle cutter is the perfect tool to help with many up-cycling projects. With an amazing success rate, the Kinkajou makes it easier to get that perfect score line that is essential for a clean glass separation. It can be used to turn bottles into personalized glassware, lamps, vases, candle holders and so many other things. The Kinkajou can help you keep your favourite brands around the house in a useful fashion. The Deluxe Kit includes a Finishing Kit with additional sand paper to help smooth the edges after separation.

11. GoPro
Depending on the type of camera the dad in your life is looking for, GoPro has one for all. If you are looking for a basic good one, I recommend the HERO3. Capture your world with HERO3 White, featuring 1080p30 video. A variety of photo modes ensure your best shots yet—choose from 5MP single photos, Time Lapse photos or Burst photos up to 3 frames per second. Built-in Wi-Fi enables you to control the camera remotely plus preview, play back and share photos and videos with the GoPro App.

12. iGrill2 Bluetooth Thermometer
Whether you’re an award winning pit-master or a novice backyard griller, the iGrill2, a Bluetooth Smart meat thermometer, makes grilling and smoking easier, more convenient and a whole lot smarter. With a 150 foot Bluetooth Smart range, you can get back to your guests and keep a close watch on the temperature progression of your meat from your mobile device, using the free iDevices Connected app. You’ll receive an alert once it’s ready to take off the grates. Your friends and family will be left wondering how you fired up such a delicious meal without getting stuck by the grill or smoker. You’ll never want to cook any other way, and with the iGrill2, you won’t have to. Grill With Precision.

13. Isabelle Grace Shield Initial Tag

14. BLACKSOCKS’ Funky Socks
Their philosophy is simple: they sell the best quality men’s socks in the world. From stylish stripes, to delightful dots, to tailored triangles—and with color patterns that include orange checks on black and thin stripes on fresh icy blue—all variations of BLACKSOCKS’ Funky Socks are certain to add spark and sexiness to your swagger. Top-quality materials and meticulous workmanship are the hallmarks of BLACKSOCKS. Made primarily of mercerized cotton—a processed fiber renowned for its luscious sheen and incredible strength—the sock is silky and highly durable with a wash-resistant sheen. The heels and toes are reinforced with extra strong polyamide fibers, and a touch of LYCRA® is used to provide some stretch. The final product is a smooth, silky and strong sock that lasts for years.

15. Art of Shaving Gift Card or Shaving Set

16. Whiskey Advent Calendar
If the dad in your life is a whiskey lover, this is the gift for them! What is surely the greatest advent calendar known to humankind is back for a third Christmas countdown, and there’s still no better way to get into the festive spirit! Behind each of the 24 windows lies a different 3cl Drinks By The Dram sample of delicious whiskey, so this year be sure to count down to Christmas in style (again). And if you like this, why not take a look at The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar!

Please know that this is a European company, so shipping will cost quite a bit. But if that turns you off, why not get creative and make your own?

17. Hydro Flask Insulated Water Bottle & Beer Growler
Some products were simply destined for greatness. The 64 oz Hydro Flask Growler, the world’s first vacuum insulated beer growler, is 64 ounces of pure insulated joy.

Though designed principally to keep beer chilled, carbonated and optimally contained between destinations, the Hydro Flask Growler also doubles as a coffee carafe, lemonade stand and whatever else you may dream up along the way. The double wall vacuum insulation will keep liquids icy cold for up to 24 hours while hot liquids remain steaming hot for up to 12.
