We can never get enough of a cool mom and kid duo -- each with their own sense of style! Kudos to Solange and Julez!

I've seen some pretty nice gifts this year... or at least fun ways to shop differently. Here is the rundown of the top 5 gift ideas that would entice me to do something differently:
- Wantful (as seen on Shop Sweet Things) -- so the idea is that you answer a few questions about the man in your life -- pick what he likes, places he likes, characteristics about himself. Afterward, you select up to 16 gifts (listed by price from $30-$500) that you think this person would love, or you can have them pick for you. Then you pay for that item, and Wantful then mails a picture booklet to the person receiving the gift. They then go online and choose which gift they want. You pick the gift, and Wantful ships it.

These book kits are perfect for a young, playful and energetic audience, and I think it is fantastic. Kids really enjoy it when you are involved in whatever they are doing at that moment, whether it is reading, cooking, housekeeping, playing with trains or dolls. These books -- Tickle Monster and Boogie Monster -- provide an interactive outlet between parent and child, so that you can read and have fun simultaneously.
Boogie Monster -- comes with monster boogie legs, a CD, and book
Tickle Monster -- comes with monster hands for mom or dad and book
The simple truth of the matter is that kids need to read. They need to be exposed to life outside the "real". For their knowledge to grow beyond reason, the love for reading starts at home. By reading to your children when they are young, you help to teach them new words, you enhance their imagination, and he or she will learn to communicate clearly. As a parent, it is your responsibility to keep your child engaged.
