Give the gift of health with EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale w/ 400 lb. Capacity & Auto Recognition Technology!

Losing weight is one of the number one New Year’s Resolutions each year, especially after many of us indulge during the holidays.  Sadly, many of these resolutions fail.

While you may not think of a scale as the perfect holiday gift, the sleek design and high-tech features of the EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale make it a pretty cool addition to any home.  In fact, it’s what I got my health-conscious husband last year and he loved it!

While it’s meant to weigh you, my kids have realized that you can use it to weigh just about anything, from your Barbie doll’s convertible to your little brother (if he’ll hold still!).  In fact, for us, it’s not just a scale.  We’ve used it in lessons and to help with homework, or just to answer a question the kids are asking  such as, “Am I big enough for a booster seat yet?”.

I could tell you all about the scale, but it has so many great features to make it easy to use, I think the product description does the best job of hitting them all:

The EatSmart Precision GetFit is not your ordinary bathroom scale as it can quickly and easily measure weight, body fat, body water, body muscle and bone mass using our new ITO BIA technology.

The EatSmart Precision GetFit uses “Step-On” technology which means no more tapping to turn on your scale. It measures up to 400lbs and will display an accurate readout to the nearest .2 lbs on the oversized 3.5″ LCD display. Its sleek design and slim profile fits perfectly into any surrounding. The touch screen interface makes it one of the most user friendly bathroom scales on the market today.

The Precision GetFit Scale stores up to 8 different users’ personal profiles and will be able to recognize these users as soon as they step onto the scale.

One of the things I love most about the opportunity to do this Holiday Gift Guide each year is the opportunity to promote very creative women in Indiana and this is one!

Erica takes ordinary pieces of silver and turns them into meaningful art for each customer by stamping personalized expressions on to each one.

Each year, my family and I pick out ornament to add to our Christmas tree. It’s our family tradition to show how our kids interest have grown throughout the years (and how some years they stayed the same!).  Our tree is a mixture of Hannah Montana guitars, Dora the Explorer, trains, Cinderella’s glass slipper, and  Bronco’s footballs.  Each one has a name and date to remind us who picked and when.

My additions are usually less about my favorite cartoon character or the Broncos (my husband’s is ALWAYS a Bronco’s ornament), and more about some memory from the year.  I’ve picked babies in rockers the years each of my kids were born, an angel for my grandma, a tiny family photo,  and other sentimental ornaments the kids don’t get, but bring happy tears to my eyes as memories rush back.

That’s where Stamped with Love comes in this year.  Erica creates ornaments that are beautiful and customize them to you!  I’m not sure yet what I’ll be adding yet, but the beautiful Snowman Ornament she sent me might just right, since this will Daelan’s first year to build a snowman and he seems like the type who will give it his all and come out looking like the abominable snow monster.

I’m a kid at heart and a super nerdy one at that!  I LOVE video games.  It’s a chance to be someone else and do something you’d never have the chance to do.  Can you say that you’ve saved the entire world from Voldemort (the LEGO version)?  I can!

And while I know it’s a controversial subject, I honestly believe kids can learn a lot more from video games than just the totally annoying lyrics to That’s Not My Name by The Ting Tings. My 4-year-old became a color genius at the age of 3 by giving Barbie make overs. You can ask her any color combination – two colors, three colors, even four colors, and she’ll tell you the result you’ll get when they are mixed.  This skill she mastered mixing hair colors for Barbie’s make over, she uses to help me decorate cupcakes, paint pictures, color, and just to confuse her color blind father.

So, when I had an opportunity to review and giveaway the new Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Game, I jumped!  While watching the video about the video game, my two-year old said in his most matter-of-fact tone, “That’s scary.”, but even my nine-year old nephew put on his most professional face to say, “I’d like to come over and help you review that, if you don’t mind.”  He was very serious, but I feel he may have had ulterior motives.

I was right.  While our review started all professional, it soon turned into a good-natured battle for Skylander.  And, while to be honest, I am just not cool enough to even know what the Skylander Action Figures are (which got me a heavy sigh and an exaggerated eye roll from that nephew of mine), I had a blast with him!

And while my four-year-old wouldn’t play with us unless she could be a pretty girl (look above, do any of those look even remotely close to a pretty girl to you?!) and my two-year-old is sticking hard to his, “It’s scary story” (which isn’t saying much since he’s also scared of Big Jet in Little Einsteins), my seven-year-old loved it too!

You pick your Skylander (it’s a tiny doll, though my nephew will insist it’s an “action figure”), then place your Skylander on the Portal of Power (it’s a toy rock with a blue center) and it comes to life in the game for you to battle an evil tyrant to save Skyland. Or, put two dolls (or action figures if you want to pretend that makes dolls more manly) on the Portal of Power to Battle each other.  This would be the part where my nephew handed my bottom to me!

I’m guessing (though again, not cool enough to know) that this game is on very many boy’s wish list, especially since my nephew screamed that he’s been DYING to play it!  And, from a parents stand point, it’s pretty cool to watch dolls (um… action figures) come to life before your very eyes.

Need a fun stocking stuffer?  These are a fun idea that let kids (and teens) express their personality or feelings.

Handvibes are fun rings with contemporary slang works such as “Epic”, “OMG”, “Like”, and “LOL”, plus a few hard-to-find rings feature emoticons like smiley faces.  Because they are made of rubber, they fit almost any hand, from my young 7 year old to my own, .  That means there is no need to guess anyone’s ring size.

My daughter has been wearing her “Peace” Handvibes to school and gave her best friend the “BFF”. Her friends think they are pretty cool and can’t wait to start collecting and trading, just like they did with their Silly Bands.

Priced at around $3.99 for a two-pack that also includes a third hidden ring, they’re affordable and great for a stocking stuff, present topper, or for a school gift exchange.

Handvibes is listed under Gifts for Kids & Jewelry & Accessories in the Season of Giving Holiday Gift Guide.

About HandVibes: The Handvibes are novelty rubber rings with interesting words on them in different colors. Featuring words and sayings, they are a fun way for kids to display their attitudes on their fingertips. Since HandVibes are sold in packs with two visible rings plus a third ‘Mystery Ring’ contained in a hidden compartment, every purchase will have an element of surprise as kids discover if their Mystery Ring is one of the rare emoticon designs.

Handvibes has great gifts for: Kids & Teenagers

Giveaway Sweepstakes

Five (5) lucky In Good Cents reader will win a (2) FREE Handvibes Rings (2 pk.) valued at $3.99 each.

I never understood why anyone worried about the thread count of their sheets.  Honestly, it seemed like a silly thing to waste money on, since sheets are sheets. Then, I got a set of 1500 thread count sheets.  I can’t even put into words how amazing it feels to sleep under those sheets.  They are so thick, yet shockingly soft.  Even though the idea of sleeping in butter doesn’t sound at all appealing, that’s the word that comes to mind.

Typically, a good pair of sheets with a high thread count can cost you a pretty penny (like over $200!), but 1500 Threads offers affordable 1500 thread count sheets at an affordable price – as low as $90!

I was driving with my Grandma who loves luxury and she mentioned her sheets just the other day.

“What’s the thread count?” , I asked casually.

She went on to say they were 600 thread-count sheets and she paid over $100 for them, then went on to talk about how soft they were.  Then, I dropped the fact that Scott and I had 1500 thread-count sheets.  Knowing how frugal I am, her mouth dropped open and she immediately asked how much I paid for mine, knowing I got a deal.

I told her all about 1500 Threads and she immediately sat me down in front her computer and had me buy her a pair!  Now she’s telling all her friends about the bargain she got and how the sheets were worth every penny!

Really, you have to just lay in a set of these sheets for one second and you’ll know what I mean!

1500 Threads is listed under Gifts for Everyone & Home & Decor in the Season of Giving Holiday Gift Guide.

About 1500 Threads: 1500 Threads sales 1500 thread-count luxury bedding for dramatically discounted prices.  We specialize in making comfort and luxury affordable for everyone.

As my daughter tells me practically daily, “You can NEVER have too many clothes!” I beg to differ because SHE wasn’t the one packing and unpacking them with our recent move, and she isn’t the one washing them either. But when it comes to Christian apparel, I do tend to agree with that statement. You CAN not have too many clothes that share your faith without  saying a word.

Kerusso is an amazing Christian Apparel Company and they have  SO many wonderful things, I can’t stay off the site! Even my husband who isn’t exactly the type to wear Christian clothing because it doesn’t fit his ‘style’, likes the items that Kerusso has to offer. And I have to say out of everyone in the house he is the pickiest when it comes to clothing so for him that is a HUGE compliment.

The topic of print quality comes up in our house quite often. You see, my husband is a supervisor at one of the worlds largest screenprinting companies. So although YOU may not notice the little errors that may be on the very shirt you are wearing now, my husband could find it in about 2 seconds flat. But that’s his job, so that’s what he does, ALL THE TIME!!!! If you know ANYONE who is passionate about their jobs, then you also know at times, it can be annoying… in a good way… but annoying. For example, a simple quick Wal-Mart  trip can turn into an hour long dissection of the print quality on the clothing racks.

So needless to say, the quality of the print on our Kerusso t-shirts were scrutinized by my husband the very second we received them. And THEY PASSED his inspection!!!! Not many things do, so to the untrained eye they look GREAT!! But even the trained eye approved of them too, so I give Kerrusso 5 stars for passing my husbands intense examination!

The style Kerusso uses to design their products looks like anything you could find at your local Wal-Mart or Macy’s. The selection they have is pretty similar too; hats, hoodies, t-shirts, guitar straps,  jewelry, accessories and yes EVEN Barbie clothes!!! I honestly have not seen any other Christian apparel that comes close to matching today’s style with a Christ centered message, like Kerusso does.

So many times we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season that we often forget the purpose of it. It’s like we are having a birthday party and not inviting the birthday boy to be a part of the party. The Kerusso items that our family has is a nice reminder that we should not only be having a Christ centered CHRISTmas but also live that way each and every day. So that in itself makes this the PERFECT gift for ANYONE in your life.

Kerusso is listed under Gifts for Everyone & Apparel in the Season of Giving Holiday Gift Guide.

About Kerusso: Over the past 24 years Kerusso has become the premier producer of Christian-themed apparel. In 1998 Kerusso began introducing other products such as: jewelry, gifts and accessories.
