#1 Family Gift

I love the concept of a “family gift.” Sometimes that is a vacation and sometimes that is a Foosball table. Here are a few family gift ideas that will get the kids away from the “me, me, me” and “I want, I want, I want” mentality of the holidays.

You can use the gift-giving season to:

Have fun together

Experience “healthy” foods as “fun” foods

Create togetherness around food

Have creative non-screen activities ready for winter break

HERE’S HOW:

Q.D. Foodie Kids Kitchen Tool Set – 7 Piece Easy Grip Sensory Friendly Kitchen Utensil Set for Kids with Vibrant Colors and Measurements in Braille – Fun and Functional Kitchen Set for Kids

Sandwich Cutters for Kids, 18 Pcs Set – Cut Cookies, Fruit and Vegetables – Mickey Mouse, Dinosaur, Star, Heart Shapes and More – Small, Medium and Large Cutter Molds

KUUQA Vegetable Cutter Shapes Set Fruit and Cookie Decorating Tools Flower Star Cartoon Animals Fruit Mold with Cleaning Brush (9PCS)

To have even more fun with all these shapes, use these kabob sticks!

AND the GrandDaddy of all Family Food Gifts…

The Vitamix. It’s NOT just a blender… It will change your life and give you the ability to make so many yummy and healthy foods quickly and easily. If you think about all the blenders (that suck) that you’ll buy in 20 years, you’ll more than come out ahead than if you’d just bought the Vitamix in the first place. Just do it! Value your health!.

Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Smart Blender, Professional-Grade, 64 oz. Low-Profile Container, Slate

and on the higher end…

Vitamix Professional Series 750 Brushed Stainless Finish with 64-Oz. Container

Whatever you do, make sure you get the tamper. I think they’re usually included – but if not – you must buy one. It helps push everything down into the blades and makes it easier to make things like “nice cream.” Nice Cream is frozen fruit you’ve made into the consistency of ice cream.

#2 A gift for Mom IS a gift for the FAMILY

Learn How to Wear Your Power With My Fashionable Twin!

Someone said to me the other day that my identical twin sister and I are a complete service. I take care of the inside and she takes care of the outside. When I was a journalism major in college, I thought her fashion stuff was just shallow and inconsequential. Oh how the experience of adulthood (and motherhood!) have changed my opinion on that! You can’t feel good on the inside unless you feel good on the outside. Being a mom makes things so much more complicated, whether it’s because of your changing body, lack of time or a tight budget. What she does is truly a SOUL SERVICE. However, not everyone can afford or is ready to pay for the full kit and caboodle of her personal styling services. (A gift certificate to her services is also an amazing gift for Mom OR Dad!)

Use the discount code RLS25 for $25 off the $199 cost.

During the 4 weeks of lessons (2 new lessons per week), you’ll learn how to:

  • Take stock of your fashion journey
  • Edit your wardrobe
  • Define your style type
  • Find your Power Color
  • Shop for the 5 must-have pieces for your work wardrobe
  • Put it all together with outfit guidelines and styling tips

A message from my sister Lani Inlander, fashion stylist extraordinaire…

The next course begins January 27, 2020. Wind up busy then or fall behind? Don’t worry. Once you are registered you will have access to the course lessons even after the live course has ended. I will be with you the whole time, reviewing your style questionnaires, answering your questions, and providing feedback.

ACT FAST BONUS: The first 5 Mamas to sign up for the course will also get a free 30-minute phone consultation with me (a $200 value)!

Looking forward to helping you wear your power, mama!
