2015 Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide - For the Grown-up's #HGG

        No one truly enjoys getting older but it can come with the right perks when you've got the right mindset!  You can take whatever path in life you choose to - be it career, family, lifestyle, or location.  You get to decorate your own spaces the way you want, entertain as frequently as you please, and even enjoy an extra "adults only" perk if you so choose.  Regardless if you are buying for him, for her, for a co-worker, or best friend, I've got some really great "adult" products this holiday!

Around the House
1. Three by Three 
Being perfect for the holiday season, the chained·up! ball chain + magnet display is five foot long ball chain which comes with 8 mighties® magnets.  This is perfect for hanging photos throughout the year and during the holiday season, greeting cards look adorable displayed any where you choose to hang this.  The cool thing is this can be hung straight up and down, curved across a mirror possibly or tightly horizontally across any area.

These are a great way to organize any area and especially for the holidays!  I love all the stylish products this brand has all at very affordable prices.  I think their unique styles are right in line with the trends of any household and I would definitely recommend checking out everything they have!

2. Aluminyze 
These days people don't take pictures and print them out as much as we used to.  We now have digital cameras and programs like photobucket or facebook to share everything digitally.  Plus, it doesn't cost money to take a picture with your digital camera and to save it on your computer.  As much as it is nice to not have to sift through boxes of photos or to even not worry about my photos being damaged over time, honestly I just hate this new process.  I feel like the memories aren't as personal anymore.

Who likes to spend a ton though on professional quality prints, canvas's or frames?!  Not me.  Aluminyze is a wonderful company that takes your photos and creates a beautiful picture to last forever.  "Aluminyze offers the most unique, vivid, and durable medium available to display your most meaningful photographs and artwork. The innovative and revolutionary process, in which your image is actually infused into a sheet of aluminum, yields a rich piece of art that can easily be hung or upraised without a frame for a sleek and contemporary look."

Super cool for any style home with the flexibility to design whatever you can imagine up!  Not only can you make gorgeous photos for the walls but their things like ornaments, license plates, and smartphone cases.  The quality that arrived (and quite quickly might I add) was crisp and clear.  We are in love in this household!  With a variety of styles and pricing, you can't really go wrong with these.  These would make a great gift for anyone on your gift list this holiday!

In the Bedroom
3. PeachSkinSheets 
Of course want all want to be comfortable when we sleep but we all do this in a different way.  The Original PeachSkinSheets™ are made from a high performance SMART fabric which provides wicking, breathable sleep (especially nice for sweaty sleepers like me).  Keeping hot sleepers cool and cold sleepers warm, the PeachSkinSheets™ are ready use right out of the package.  In most cases people must wash the sheets to get that soft, fresh feel but not with these.

These are also hypoallergenic, help prevent these types of sensitive skin allergies from happening.  Never will you find their products contain any pesticides. Each set feels softer than any 1500 thread count sheet set with it's reversible brushed PeachSkin finish on both sides of the sheet, which would normally cost you hundreds of dollars.  You don't have to worry about shrinking when washing plus the sheets are anti-pill and wrinkle free.

This is a perfect example of how something as simple as your sheets can create the ultimate in luxury sleep.  The Original PeachSkinSheets™ carries sheet sets and separates, duvet covers, pillowcases, and even candles (AquaFlame™ Candle Fountains and Luminara™ Candles).  They always have 2 Colors of the Month priced at $55 for any size set and you can always order a free swatch to check out the quality yourself before buying.

4. Cool Jams 
Cool-jams fabric is a specially designed Poly Microfiber that has been engineered to feel like soft cotton but has all the attributes associated with the fastest wicking and drying material in the world.  This ground-breaking Kottinu™ technology, with its amazing "cotton-like" comfort and feel, offers the superior odor and bacterial control of Bact-Out® and delivers unparalleled performance in moisture management, lasts 6 times longer than cotton fabric, maintains color sharpness with minimal fade and is a viable alternative to cotton in any application where the inferior attributes of cotton have been considered "the standard".

I have to say this is by far the softest piece of clothing I have ever worn especially pajama's.  Since I am constantly a hot sleeper, this has helped me tremendously since I received a night gown.  Not only can you find sleepwear for both men and women, you can find a variety of bedding for everyone.  This makes the perfect gift for anyone and especially the hard to buy for adults this holiday season!

5. Dreams and Premonitions 
I've always been intrigued by the power of dreams.  Psychology was an amazing class for me where I frequently enjoyed learning about the meanings behind someone's thoughts and how their brain works.  Not only am I not alone in this curiosity, it makes for a great conversation at any gathering.

The synopsis says, "Sixth sense, gut feeling, instinct. Whatever you call it, sometimes we have no logical reason for knowing something—but still we know it. In this collection, you’ll read 101 stories of intuition, insight, and inspiration that will amaze you and encourage you tap into your own inner wisdom.  We all have the ability to tap into our intuition, but often find it hard to do. Dreams and premonitions are often the way our intuition or our faith in the beyond manifest. You will be awed and amazed by these true stories from everyday people who have experienced the extraordinary. The 101 stories in this book will enlighten and encourage you to listen to your dreams and your own inner voice."

6. Cinedigm Movies
Your family will want to ring in the holidays with Cinedigm’s new seasonal movies, CHRISTMAS TRADE and A CHRISTMAS TAIL. Released November 3 on DVD, these fun films are sure to excite parents, children and even the family pooch!

7. Margery Leveen Sher - The Noticer’s Guide to Living and Laughing 
Holiday gatherings can almost seem the same every year.  Typically everyone follows the same trends and traditions they did the year before, leaving a less satisfying feeling each year that passes.  Let's change it up a bit!  Maybe both young and old can discuss new and exciting topics or possibly take notice of something they hadn't before.  With the The Noticer’s Guide to Living and Laughing, this year's holiday celebrations can be a bit different and anything but typical.

The synopsis says, "Change your life without changing your routine! How? By Noticing what you see! And by being ready with an easy laugh. Life is Amazing. Life can be Annoying. And life is full of our Human Idiosyn-Crazies™! Do you know why you should be awestruck by broccoli? Do you know why you should love zippers? Do you know there is a lot of Totally DeTestable Technology™ out there? Do you know why our closets get filled with junk? Do you spit a lot? This book is filled with 97 “Noticings” (short essays), each followed by conversation-starters to have with your kids, your parents or grandparents, your spouse, or your coworkers. Noticing is mindfulness with a smile."

Keepin' it Healthy
8. Trusted Health Products 
"Beautiful uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, beautiful glowing skin." Its an “All-in-One Skincare: replacing your moisturizer, cleanser, toner, firming gel, protectant, repair cream, blemish controller, age-defying serum".  This contains 100% pure and natural botanical oils as well as no preservatives, parabens, GMOs, synthetic chemicals or additives of any kind.

Almost instantly you can smell the citrus orange scent as you rub on your skin.  It felt very smooth and just like I was rubbing an essential oil on my face.  The only thing you have to get past is the fact that it feels a bit oily after first applying but that does go away as it is pulled into the skin.  Actually "these botanical ingredients also help remove the cause behind excessive oil production."

        Not only is this something perfect for all skin types but they even have a men's line of this skin care system called 'The Man' which I suggest checking out if your one of my male readers or for the man in your life!  Every bottle is personalized with the user’s name and is a unique gift for Christmas or any other occasion!
