Hanukkah Movie Night with Hallmark Channel!

Eight nights of Hanukkah can be a lot with little ones – lots of presents and donuts and late nights…so I like to have a little Hanukkah tradition for just me and my husband and that’s to take one night and watch a movie together. Hot chocolate with lots of gelt is a must! This year there’s a new Hanukkah movie premiering on Hallmark Channel that I am so excited about. It’s called #EightGiftsofHanukkah and stars Inbar Lavi and Jake Epstein. It’s so incredibly meaningful to me for Hanukkah to be included in @HallmarkChannel lineup of 41 all new original movies premiering this holiday season, let me know if you’ll be watching along with me!

What My Kids Are Getting for Hanukkah! Hanukkah Gifts for 2 Year Old Boy & 5 Year Old Boy!

The first gift for my boys this year is one I know they will keep and treasure until for so many many Hanukkahs to come, and that is this beautiful train menorah from www.JudaicaWebStore.com . Judaica Web Store is the largest online shop for everything Judaica, from jewelry to Jewish art. Definitely check them out if you’re looking for something special like this!

This train menorah is by the artist Yair Emanuel (one of Israel’s top Judaica designers) and is made of anodized steel, in person the color and feel are even more gorgeous than the photos.

Thank you to JudaicaWebStore for gifting us this menorah!
These are our favorite paint sticks! The Crayola Quick Dry Paint Sticks are really fun to color with because they glide on the paper and are super pigmented (they’re kind of like coloring with lipstick!), they are a firm favorite in our house and really great for the 2 year old age on up!
We love magnetic tiles in our house and they are definitely our most played with building toy. They’re super easy to manipulate and the magnets allow for building amazing creations! These ones are the Picasso brand which we’re trying out this year as they’re a little less expensive than the Magnatiles brand we have already.
This is a new one for our family but I’ve seen my boys LOVE these toys at their friends houses so I think these Sit & Bounce balls will be a big hit!
This is an awesome starter pack of really well made Dinosaur toys! They’re really well made so stand up to bath times and outdoor play which is a great bonus.
We love the KidKraft wooden Hanukkah toy sets and this year I’m adding this one to our collection. It’s a little smaller and more affordable but little kids love taking the candles in and out of the Hanukkah menorah!
My kids are obsessed with cars and Toy Story so this year we’re combining those passions with this adorable gift set. If you have kids who like these characters I think these are so fun!
Groovy! We chose this lava lamp for my son because we think it will be a nice relaxing night light for him and a great tool for creating a calm environment at night.
If you have a young reader who enjoys silly humor this Captain Underpants series is perfect! It’s written in comic book form and is highly entertaining to my boys!
We are huge Mickey Mouse and Disney fans here so this year we chose a Lego set to add to our collection that featured our favorite characters. This set is adorable and Lego Duplo is perfect for little ones learning to use that dexterity and strengthen their hands and eye hand coordination.

Father’s Day 2021 Gift Ideas!

For all the amazing dads out there, here is my list of my husband’s favorite gifts!

They’re all easily available from Amazon and range in price from less than $10 to $100.

Ok here we go!

Super Hero Dad Book

This is our favorite ‘Dad’ book and tells the story of a little boy who thinks his dad is a superhero. It’s lovable and adorable and a little emotional for any dad to read to his kid.

Extra Long Charging Chord

For the dad who’s phone is always on 10% this extra long charging cable is a must!
Race on my Back Shirt

This shirt is such an amazing idea! Dad gets to lie down and the kids can race cars on his back, which means a free nap and massage lol!
Range Finder

For the golfing pro dad who wants to improve his game and accuracy this range finder is the perfect gift.

Scotch Cubes

For the sophisticated scotch drinker, these ice cube trays make super large sized cubes which take a longer time too melt.

Car Vacuum

This inexpensive gadget is portable and has a USB charger so it fits in the car. It’s perfect for the dad who loves his car but not the car seat crumbs or just the neat freak dad. It’s one of our all time favorite buys!

Stacking Tool Box

This tool box is part of an awesome system of interlocking and stacking toolboxes so dad’s collection can grow and grow! They’re also built super tough strong and long lasting.

Packing Cubes

For the organized dad who likes to travel these packing cubes are the absolute best and the most affordable.

The Ridge Wallet

This super streamlined wallet is all dad needs to keep things light. It’s pricey at $85 but long lasting durable and made of high quality lightweight material.
