Fortune Cookie Soap is my new obsession, and the company has so many deals that there's really no excuse to not try them out. They even have a Christmas in July sale coming up next week where they will have all kinds of goodies on sale, and I can't wait to see what it will be like. I've been getting their box of the month since May (a present I received for Mother's Day) and it's just been so fun to anticipate, open up and try.
Father's Day is just around the corner. Do you know what you are getting the special dads or father figures in your life? I'm not one to get a gift from a list of "gift ideas," because my dad and husband don't usually go for most of what they suggest. They are both work-with-their-hands guys, but they already have all of the tool ideas that most lists suggest. They'd rather get more specialized tools--carpentry, for my dad, and automotive, for my husband. They might like tackle subscriptions, but really I know they both prefer choosing their own, often live, bait when fishing, too.
Are you in the market for a last-minute Mother's Day gift for the mother figure in your life? Even though it's down to the wire, you can still get or make something special just in time for Mother's Day (or later, if you can't see your person until then). I love these ideas from Geek Dad! From geode bath bombs to a General Leia purse, these are pretty much my dream pressies.
Each Mother's Day, many people celebrate the mother figures in their lives and many mourn the ones they lost or never had. There's no right or wrong way to honor the day, but if you are buying something for your mother figure or yourself as a parent, here are some good deals. I love the weighted blanket, which is comforting for many people, and the "Things I Love About Mom" books are great for kids and young people to fill in for their parents.
Valentine's Day is just a few days away! Do you have gifts lined up for your sweetheart(s)? This year, my husband and I decided to try out a couple of date box subscriptions. Many boxes offered half-price rates a few weeks ago if you signed up in time for Valentine's Day, so that's what we did.
Christmas may be over, but New Year's is just days away. It's the perfect time for bubbly champagne, celebrating brand new opportunities to come and all things glittery and sparkly. Maybe you want to get something glamorous for your host or hostess, or something to create sparkle in your own space.
If you're like me, you're really tired of deals being thrown at you from every angle. My inbox has been nothing but sales pitches all week! While the deals are great, it's just too much, and I just deleted most of it. That said, I've always wanted an ugly sweater for all of the ugly sweater events we've been invited to over the years, so I thought I'd pass this geeky deal along. There's a deadpool sweater, as well as a Darth Vader one, and some geeky animal sweaters, too.
I snicker every time someone asks me, "What day is Halloween again?" The same day it was last year! It's a fair question if you're wondering what day of the week it falls on or if your town is honoring it a different day, of course. All of these deals are good for the day of Halloween only so be sure to grab them while they're here!
Tax Day might be a headache for most people, but it's also a great day of savings at plenty of stores. Did you know you can get hotel rebates, free cookies at Great American Cookies and free shaved ice from Kona? You can even save $25 on Rail Europe bookings! National Park fees are also waived today, so head over for a visit if you haven't yet.
If you prefer dining out instead of cooking for the holidays, there are plenty of great Easter deals and restaurants that will be open for you to choose from this year. Whether you want takeout, dine-in options or even delivery, you can eat what you want this Easter.
