Best Board Games for the Family

Our family is really into board games. Every year, on Christmas Eve, my kids get a pair of Christmas pajamas and a board game for us to play together. Every time we get together with my in-laws, we are always up until the wee hours of the night, playing games and laughing together. It’s so much fun! Board games make a great gift. These are our favorites!

Why Board Games?

Um…because they are the best! No seriously, they are! I believe, in a day and age where people are spending more time on their phones than actually speaking face to face with others, we need to find all the ways to get back to putting down the phone and being present. Playing games together does just that. Before we had kids, my husband and I used to host game nights with our friends. I would love to get back to that. It was a lot of fun. This holiday season (or anytime during the year!), give the gift of board games to your friends and family!

Playing games with your preschool aged children is so important! Not only is it fun for the kids, but it reinforces the importance in taking turns, being a good sport, and a lot of games have a learning aspect to it that supports education and the kids don’t even realize it because they are having so much fun! I can’t tell you how many matching games I played with my kids when they were little. That and the Let’s Go Fishin’ game were their favorites!

Games for Young Kids

If there are any games you get from this entire post, you must pick up HEDBANZ and 5 Second Rule. The first time we played HEDBANZ, the kids laughed so hard during the entire game. We did too. Basically everyone has a card that they can’t see. You have to ask questions to guess what is on your card. It really is a fun game!

Board Games for Older Children and Teens

As the kids get older, the games get better and better! Three of our favorites above are Taboo, 5 Second Rule and Mexican Dominoes. On my list to purchase, as soon as I finish writing this post, is to pick up Relative Insanity. That game looks hysterical! If you click on it, there is a video on Amazon that shows a snippet of the game being played!

Right now is the time to buy board games. Not only are they on a super sale on Amazon, but you can get some games for around $5 each! Remember, these games make a great gift. Are you going to a holiday party and you want to get the host a gift? Why not pick a game or two, put it in a basket with a bottle of wine and a few snacks? That would be a fun and unique gift!


Best Christmas Pajamas on Amazon

One of the things we have always done for the kids for Christmas is give them a new pair of Christmas pajamas. Sometimes they are Christmas themed, other times they are just a fun new pair of pajamas. It totally depends on if I get the pjs early enough before the stores start selling out of the sizes I need! My favorite year was the year that I got Christmas pajamas for the whole family. My goal is to do that again this year.

Christmas Pajamas for Babies

I still remember the adorable baby pajamas I got for my son for his first Christmas. That was 14 years ago. Back then, it seemed like there wasn’t that many cute baby boy stuff. Not like today. While I was able to find a super cute pair of pajamas for him when he was a baby, the stuff they have now is great! These are a few of my favorites!

Aren’t they cute?!? I honestly don’t know which one I would pick! I have a little baby nephew and he would look so cute in any one of those (the ones for boys, that is)!

Christmas Pjs for Toddlers

When my daughter was a toddler, she really wanted a long nightgown. So we got her a red plaid one just like the one pictured below. We even found one to fit her favorite doll! She loved it! When it comes to toddlers, you want to find something they are interested in. My son loved dinosaurs when he was little. He would have loved those dinosaur Christmas pajamas.

Matching Christmas Pjs for the Family

Like I said before, my absolute favorite was when I got matching Christmas pajamas for our whole family. It was fun and our pictures were super cute! Some of these family matching sets even have pjs that you can buy for your dog! Don’t leave your dog out of the fun. Well…unless your dog tries to tear apart the clothes you put on them…then you may want to forget about the dog!

One of the things we do with the Christmas pjs is we wrap them up and give it to the kids on Christmas Eve, along with a board game and sometimes a movie that we can watch together on Christmas Eve. It’s a fun tradition and one that we all look forward to each year!

What fun Christmas traditions do you have?

Harry Potter Christmas Ideas

It’s officially November, does that mean I can put my Christmas tree up yet?!? While Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, Christmas is my favorite holiday to decorate for. Actually, who am I kidding…Christmas is the only holiday I really decorate for! This year I have a feeling that a lot of our Christmas gifts will be themed. When my kids like something, they go all in with it. Right now my daughter is obsessed with Harry Potter. Here is how you can do a Harry Potter Christmas!

Are You Obsessed with Harry Potter?

Harry Potter is one of those characters that I think will always be popular. I remember when the books came out. My husband and I literally each bought a copy of it because we didn’t want to wait for the other one to finish before we could start!. Our daughter is now 12 years old and she is currently obsessed. In fact, a lot of her presents for her birthday recently revolved around Harry Potter and Hufflepuff. She will be having a Harry Potter Christmas, for sure!

Getting into the Holiday Spirit with Harry Potter

I don’t know about you, but we like to get into the holiday spirit with various traditions. One of those traditions is to make gingerbread houses. Last year, we did a “boys against girls” competition. While I have yet to find a Hogwarts gingerbread house (and I am not good enough to make my own kit), you can buy Harry Potter candyharry potter christmas to decorate your gingerbread house!

Other traditions that are great to get in the holiday spirit are Advent calendars. The Harry Potter Advent calendar is super cute. I know my daughter would be so excited to receive something like that. If your family is like mine, then doing puzzles is something you enjoy! While you sit and put together this “Christmas at Hogwarts” puzzle, you can enjoy hot chocolate or coffee in these super cute Harry Potter themed mugs!

Harry Potter Christmas Ornaments

Every year, my husband and I get each other a Christmas ornament. I always try to get an ornament for him that sums up the year. He always gets me a camel ornament (I collect camels). I joke that one day my goal is to have a Christmas tree filled with nothing but camel ornaments! We also try to get the kids an ornament too. I can tell you right now, this year, my daughter will be getting a Harry Potter ornament. I’m sure she would love to have a Harry Potter themed Christmas tree!

Aren’t the ornaments cute?!? I would love to get my daughter the set of Hogwarts house crests! She would love hanging them on the tree, as well as her own tree one day!

For the last 14 years (yes…my oldest is 14), I have said that I wanted to get a set of matching Christmas stockings. Here I am, 14 years later, and I am still trying to get my matching stockings! These Harry Potter themed stockings are super cute and they match (bonus)! If you are looking for some last minute gift ideas, these are it!

If you have any other ideas, other than what you see here, please leave me a comment. Like I said, my daughter is currently obsessed and I don’t see that obsession going anywhere anytime soon!


Marvel Studios’ Avegers: Infinity War

We had to have been the only house on the entire planet that had not seen the Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War movie. My son had been asking to go see it, but with everything we have had going on, it just didn’t work out. When I was asked to review the Blu-ray (available on August 14, 2018), I jumped at the chance! And let me tell you, I have one happy child (and husband, if we’re being honest) because we had one heck of an epic family movie night!

Mothers Day Gifts for First Time Moms

When I think back to when I was a first time mom and celebrating my very first Mothers Day, I have fond memories of what we did. We went on our first family vacation to Niagara Falls. My son was about 11 months old and pretty much slept in the stroller the entire time, but we still had a really nice time. Since that trip, I’ve always wanted to go back there, but this time, with both kids. I am sure my daughter would really like to see the falls. It can be stressful trying to figure out what to get first time moms for Mothers Day. I’ve put together this guide of gifts that I am pretty sure moms would love to receive from their kids.

Mother’s Day Gifts for First Time Moms

When I was pregnant with my son, I really wanted to personalized “mom necklace”. I got one shortly after my daughter was born and I wore that thing every day (until it broke and I lost it at a store). This particular necklace is simple and comes with different options that you can really personalize it. Me personally, I like the 18 ” ball chain. They also ship fast! Perfect Mothers Day gift!

Gifts for Her, Mom, Wife, Girlfriend, Grandmother

If personalized mom jewelry is not her thing, that’s OK! Not everyone likes that kind of thing. Maybe this “Mom-isms” coloring book and markers are something that special mom would enjoy! Sure they say to sleep when the baby is sleeping, but why not color?!? If you pick up the coloring book, make sure you get the markers. They are the best!

OK so this next one…I know they say you should never get an appliance as a gift, but maybe they are like me. I love getting stuff like that and I am sure they would be excited to get this particular appliance! The Instant Pot will dramatically change their life. Even on their busiest mom days, they can have dinner on the table in such a short amount of time!

Already have the Instant Pot, no sweat! Maybe that special mom would like some fun things to do outside. I don’t know where you live, but here in Michigan we are just now starting to see a glimpse of spring! Maybe she’d like a new bike or a bike trailer to carry the baby! Those two things are something I always wished I had when my kids were younger. Fresh air is good for everyone!! Be sure to take a look at this bike trailer…it’s on sale right now!

I don’t know about you, but when I think about first time moms, I think back to being so exhausted and all those nights that I was up late, rocking my baby while he slept or ate or just wanted to be held. Usually I watched all of the infomercials. I can’t tell you how many times I thought I needed something (that I really didn’t need). What I really wish I had was a Kindle so I could read in dark while the baby did whatever it was the baby needed to do. If you do decide to pick up a Kindle, be sure to take a look at the Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans. Trust me. You will make her day! Be sure to check out my book blog, A Real Page Turner, for some book suggestions!

This next gift idea is sure to be a hit with first time moms. When you become a mom, things like taking showers become difficult to fit in. You’re either too tired and need to sleep when the baby is sleeping or the baby wants you to hold him all the time so showers typically happen when you have someone else home with you. When I wanted to shower, I would put my son in his bouncy seat and take a record breaking shower. Thankfully he loved that seat so much! Getting mom this next gift and telling her that you and the baby will occupy yourselves while she enjoys her down time, would be a dream come true! Throw in a candle, a bottle of wine and the Kindle above and she will be one happy mom!

No matter what you get mom for Mothers Day, she will like it. So long as you put some thought into it, she will be happy. At least I know I would be. Be sure to go all out and celebrate those first time moms this Mothers Day! Be sure to let me know what you got them! Happy Mothers Day!
