Still looking for awesome gifts but think you are out of time? Here are a few ideas.

  • Send the Best Christmas Carol Video ever! Get your kids singing on video and email it to all your loved ones. Memories to last a lifetime!
  • Photo book or a collage of the past year. Remember to write all the good stuff that has happened!
  • Christmas Morning eCard

These sound great but seem too time consuming?

I would have thought the same thing until I tried it for myself. I made a whole photo album of our boys growing up and posted it on our personal blog. It took about an hour. Years of scrap booking made simple! I thought I would have to wait until the kids went to college and then find oodles of supplies. With a simple technology called smile box you still have time to produce some of your most treasured gifts yet.

Can you do all this in just a few days?  If you have a computer, some pictures and a few minutes you can create a masterpiece! Create a ecard, slide show, scrapbook, photo album or collage and get this, it is FREE at Smilebox.com If you want to burn to a DVD or post on a blog sign up for the trial and then pay a low fee. It is fun and simple. Quick gifts for a busy Mom!

  • Home Baked Goodies

Always a treat! I just baked some wonderful sugar cookies, rice krispy treats, chocolate chip cookies and better then sex brownies (that is the actual recipe name). Bake with a friend and turn up the holiday music! Make sure to bake extra so the kids can eat without feeling guilty they are eating the gifts.

There are a lot of online places to get recipes. This holiday I used  Recipezaar.com or allRecipes.com

  • Coupons

Never under estimate the value of a well thought out coupon book. We are using a coupon book for my son this year for sporting events. Be creative, have fun and remember it is the love that counts!

To make coupon giving easier try these printable coupon templates from American Greetings, and more ideas from LoveToKnow.

  • Technology Gifts-I posted these for Black Friday but worth repeating

1) Apple iPod touch 8 GB (3rd Generation)– or iPhone of course!

41WgyV+yOLL._SL160_The iPhone is by far the technology that saves me the greatest amount of time. Learn more here with this PDF and keep coming back for iPhone app reviews for moms.
2) Flip UltraHD Camcorder, 120 Minutes (Black)


We use and I mean we because this is a camera that everyone in the family can use. My son takes it to his practices so he can learn by seeing his moves. It is simple technology, no tapes or disc, just upload to your computer delete and start again!

3) Kindle Wireless Reading Device (6″ Display, U.S. Wireless)

51V-u8G3laL._SL160_I have to admit this is on my wish list. : ) I have not got around to picking up Kindle, its a bit pricey but I am looking forward to using Kindle. I am not as much of a reader as an audio listener and that is one reason I put this on the list. When your  in the middle of a great read and it is time to go instead of putting your book down you can turn it up. How cool is that?

4) Canon PowerShot A1100IS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.5-inch LCD (Silver)


I like to think my iPhone can do everything. Well it can take amazing shots but when it comes time to make posters size wall hangings I have to rely on something a little bit more suited for the job.

5) Mac Computer

Need I say more I’m a Mac.

6) Garmin nüvi 260W 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator


If you do not have a navigation system yet, what are you waiting for?
