Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Teens – MyCharge Chargers Are A Hit

I have partnered with MyCharge for feature

Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Teens - MyCharge Chargers Are A Hit

I have 3 boys ages 9, 19 and 26. Let me tell you about the older boys and gifts…MyCharge portable chargers are a hit! When I was sent my first MyCharge charger our oldest was over for dinner and he spotted it getting excited I had a MyCharge. He knew exactly about the brand and I knew it was a hit and filed it in the back of my mind for gift ideas.

Here are 2 chargers I will feature for you. I recently shared about the MyCharge HubXtra and you can read about the HubXtra HERE! Read about the MyCharge RAZOR HERE!

These two I am featuring are the MyCharge AdventureMax and MyCharge Amp-ProngPlus portable chargers. Both are about the same size and weight. Both has the USB end for your charging cord you will need to connect from the charger to device. Both are portable and both will charge 2 devices at once. But there are some differences….

The MyCharge AdventureMax is a must for the rugged, outdoor type. It is built to be rugged. It boosts 10500mAh of power and 2 USB ports. It extends the life of your tablet, smartphone, bluetooth speaker or another USB device up to six times on full charge. In the box includes the charger, recharge cable, Carbiner clip and quick start guide.

Add this one to the basket for your Boy or Girl Scout, Skier and Outdoor Adventurous teen! Also available on Amazon!

Below is the MyCharge Amp-PronPlus. This charger is the ultimate powerbank for charging two devices simultaneously. It has a 2.4A output that will charge tablets and smartphones up to 65% faster than other powerbanks. Also has collapsible wall prongs and operates like a standard USB wall charger for your phone, tablet, or other USB devices. Pass-through charging technology prioritizes the charge to your smartphone or other USB devices, and then chargers the AmpProng+ itself.

This is great for the teen that has multiple devices being used frequently! Also available on Amazon!

These will be a hit in the baskets for sure! They will definitely get used and especially for traveling. I always take my MyCharge portable chargers on vacation with me when I ill be out all day taking photos and navigating where I wear my phone battery frequently.

Valentine’s Gift Ideas For Your Child’s Teacher

I have partnered with TeacherPeach for this feature

Valentine's Gift Ideas For Your Child's Teacher

I know! We had back to school with the new teacher and Christmas was just last month and now I am telling you of Valentine’s gift ideas for your child’s teacher. As a daughter of a teacher I can’t stress enough how much money out-of-pocket your child’s teacher is putting into the classroom. From most of the decor to rewards and more. The more years a teacher teaches they eventually accumulate a lot and for the newer teachers they are just starting out. To give gifts that help the teacher do good in class is much appreciated.

Besides all the work your teacher outs into the classroom atmosphere and systems she sets up for the kids she has to go home with her work. Papers to correct and lessons to plan are more plentiful than the hours in class with no kids allow for her or him to get it all done. You can help them out with these totes from Teacher Peach.

This Teachers Rock Canvas Boat Tote is the perfect tote for all of those lose papers. It holds a lot and zips up to keep it all confined for transporting. I just love all the words and designs Teacher Peach offers on these bags.

While stocking up for class Valentine’s Day cards, how about cards the teacher can use as well for the kids. Only these Positive Postcards can be used all year long. How proud would your child be to come home with one of these cards in their hands?

Playing with History in Playmobil’s Pharaoh’s Pyramid

I have partnered with Playmobil for feature. All opinions are my own

Pharaoh’s Pyramid

How is your shopping coming along? I am done and even have my gifts wrapped and ready so I can focus on putting on Christmas Eve dinner at my place. If you still have shopping to do and have young ones on your list, take a look at this toy that will have them stepping inside history as they play with Pharaoh’s Pyramid by Playmobil.

Pharaoh’s Pyramid is available at most retailers such as on Amazon as a Prime with 2-day shipping and Toys R Us and Walmart to name a few. Recommended for ages 6+ and including 120 pieces this set moves and opens the imagination up wide!

There are five chambers within that hide treasures protected by tricky puzzles and sneaky traps. The set includes three figures, tomb, mummy, two skeletons, treasures, spiders, fire pots, hieroglyphics, and many other accessories.

Playmobil has always done such a fantastic job of loading moving parts, doors that open, sets that fold to carry in all of their products. It seems to retail near the $40 price point. It is just one of many sets to consider for the holidays or any special event this year.

More from Stanley

Our middle son is away at College and this year he has requested tools for gifts. He wants to start building his own tool collection. He can’t start his first tool collection without a toolbox and with renting school apartments he’ll need something portable because he is bound to move again. The STANLEY® Essential Rolling Workshop is the perfect gift! Whether you are starting your first tool collection or transporting your tools around, it has 3 storage solutions in 1 set. The bottom is a bin that is great for the drill or drivers and small power tools. The middle is a caddy great for hammers and longer hand tools. The top is a tool box and organizer. For the smaller jobs you can just take the top box and go, leaving the caddy behind.

Saying Thank You with GourmetGiftBaskets.com

Thank you to the partner, GourmetGiftBaskets.com for this feature idea. Opinions are my own

Saying Thank YOu with GourmetGiftBaskets

 Chances are you know an Awesome Mom…or Dad, teacher, co-worker, neighbor, babysitter, volunteer, etc. Have you ever wanted to get them a Thank You gift and are left stumped on ideas? Gift cards are cliche and not with the most thoughtfulness put into the gift. Coffees and teas are good if you are sure they drink them. But, gift baskets remain a popular gift idea and when GourmetGiftBaskets.com puts the entire gift basket together for you including a personal message then how can you go wrong?

basket for Mom

First, I look at the basket! At GourmetGiftBaskets.com they get creative from using the base of a basket like above or colanders, buckets, platters and decorative gift tower boxes. Then you need to make sure that what is inside matches their personality. You can find baskets with wine, beer, meats, chocolate, candy, teddy bears, sauces, pasta, cheeses and so much more.

cookies for Mom

This gift basket that I am featuring is great for Mom (hence the mug that reads Awesome Mom). It is called the Happy Mother’s Day Gift Basket. This basket is all about teas and cookies. It includes: Awesome Mom Mug by Burton & Burton, Green Tea Garden by Davidson’s, Butter Rich Cookie Brittle by Holly Baking, Earl Grey Tea by Davidson’s, (2) Amber Rock Candy Demitasse Barista Sticks by Dryden & Palmer, White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies by Kimball Lake Bakery and Strawberry Tea Wafer by The Original Carlsbad Oblaten.

tea for mom

How adorable is that mug? No matter who you need to thank, you will find baskets and even care packages to gift. I have always loved the quality of baskets I have experienced from Holiday Gift Towers to Teddy Bears & Chocolate.
