Welcome to my Holiday Gift Guide 2020, also known as the Pandemic Holiday gift guide! I am so happy we have almost made it to the end of this year. Wow, what a year it has been. We take our Holiday gift guide 2020 very seriously. We have been testing products all year long, getting ready for our biggest event of the year. We hope that you enjoy this Gift Guide and that you will find some unique items for everyone on your holiday gift list.
Words cannot express just how much we love the Skinny Sticks Maple Syrup brand. This is the best maple syrup and maple syrup blends we have ever tasted. The pure maple syrup is delicious and delightful on its own. But, there are so many other products in the Skinny Sticks line. These products are all kosher, gluten-free, and delicious. This family-run maple syrup company has also created some amazing flavors including Bees & Trees (honey/maple syrup blend which is SO good), bourbon barrel-aged, vanilla bean infused(with a full vanilla bean inside), and regular maple syrup too. There is also a maple cream spread which is amazing on toast or inside fresh cinnamon rolls. The organic cinnamon-spiced maple sugar shaker is fantastic. Shake it on your oatmeal, toast, or cinnamon rolls. Any of the Skinny Sticks products would make an excellent gift.
2. Olukai Slippers:
Oh my, these slippers are SO comfortable. Olukai slippers are made in Hawaii from premium materials. Just look at the details on these slippers. Everyone is spending more time at home now, so keep your feet as comfortable as possible in these super cute and comfy slippers. These slippers are so comfortable I never want to take them off. My favorite feature of these slippers is the drop-in-heel, so you can wear the slipper as a slide or as a shoe. Every slipper should really have this feature. The footbed in these slippers has a dual-density soft gel insert as well as a washable wool cover. Your foot slides in and is immediately surrounded in warmth and softness. The footbed is quite supportive and really feels great even after a long day on your feet. Every pair of slippers you purchase gives back, as a portion of all proceeds supports the Ama Olukai Foundation
which honors those who preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit of Hawaii. Olukai slippers come in men’s and kid’s sizes too.
Have you tried any CBD products? We have tried many and very few have given us great results. Bee Delightful CBD honey is one of the best CBD products we have tried. CBD can be used to lessen aches and pains, help you sleep better, help ADHD symptoms, help anxiety, lessen headache severity, or just help your overall mood and wellbeing. Bee Delightful CBD honey is a combination of Texas wildflower honey infused with pure CBD. The apiaries that are used to make this product are filled with bees that were rescued. By supporting Bee Delightful, you are helping to save the bees. Not only does this honey taste amazing, but it also has many medicinal properties that can help various ailments. My husband has terrible joint pain each day. On the days he adds this honey to his tea he feels a little pep in his step and can continue working without pain. The bees that produce this honey have not only been rescued, but they are now living in free-roaming apiaries. You can purchase this incredible honey in a jar format or in the cool snap packs which allow you to take your honey on-the-go!
How cute are these sneakers? These Giesswein sneakers are seriously the perfect pandemic shoes. They are machine washable (goodbye germs on my shoes), stylish, flexible, lightweight, and very comfortable. The footbed is naturally odor-resistant so they will not get stinky if you wear no socks. They are made from 100% Merino wool, which keeps your feet cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The unique 3D stretch technology keeps you moving freely throughout your day. The shoes are very lightweight and have an anti-slip sole, so perfect for icy days ahead. These shoes come in 20 different colors, what color is your favorite?

The kids are playing on the Nintendo Switch constantly during this pandemic. Nintendo makes the best games that are all family-friendly. You can read some other awesome game reviews of Animal Crossing
New Horizon and Paper Mario
as well. Any of these games would make a great gift for kids. The latest game we have been playing is Pikmin 3. This real-time strategy game has incredible graphics and is fun for all ages. Help your Pikmin grow and then save your planet. You will learn how each Pikmin’s strength and power/skill help you to collect items, defeat enemies, and overcome obstacles. You can even play story mode with a friend. The scenery and music are totally enjoyable and are a nice escape from real life problems. Try this adventure without leaving your living room.
Are your kids feeling lazier than ever during this pandemic? A perfect gift would be a Garmin Vivofit Jr. 3 fitness tracker for kids. This newest version comes in cool Marvel and Disney themed watches and would make a perfect holiday gift for kids. This fitness tracker will get your kids off the couch and excited to track their steps, monitor their activity minutes, and even track their sleep. The more active your kids are, the more adventures they can unlock. You can choose from Ironman, Black Panther, Disney Princesses, the Little Mermaid, or a digi camo, lilac floral, or blue stars band. The fitness tracker can be worn in the water and will track swimming. There is an app that goes with the fitness tracker that can be used to enhance the tracker. Such a great gift to encourage your kids to get more active.
Learn a little bit about science at home. Your kids will enjoy growing their own microgreens with this microgreens grow kit. Everything you need to grow three types of microgreens (broccoli, mighty mix, and rainbow mix) comes in this kit. The kit includes organic soil and seeds along with text support in case you need help with your growing kit. Back to the Roots is the #1 organic gardening company and they have many different growing kits including mushrooms, herbs and veggies, and a lavender plant. Learning science at home is great fun for young children.
