If you want a cool, creative gift for less than $20, these calendars are perfect. The company also offers personalized invitations, holiday cards, notebooks, folders, banners, and notecards. The desk calendar stands 5″W x 7.5″H with a built-in easel and costs $14.99. The wall calendar is the classic 11″ X 17″ hanging calendar with double-wire binding and costs $19.99.
Cranium Scribblish combines drawing with the parlor game “Telephone” (aka “Whisper Down the Lane”). One player looks at a game card, then draws their best sketch representing the phrase on that card. They pass the drawing to the next player, who writes a phrase describing the drawing. The next player turns those words back into images. After all players have a chance to draw, they read the created story out loud for everyone to enjoy. Great for 4-6 players, ages 8 and up.
These gloves are soft, lightweight and comfortable. Grippy material on the palms and fingers will keep your phone from flying out of your hands.

All Freehands have fully shirred elastic wrists to keep cold air from getting in and a plastic hook and loop to hold the gloves together when you put them away or to attach to a jacket zipper. This affordable price point makes Freehands a budget-conscious choice for gadget lovers this holiday season.

We loved this product. Simple to use and saves time. No more ironing necessary. Mister Steamy turns your dryer into a wrinkle releasing machine. Just add water to the spiked dryer ball and toss it in the dryer with your clothes. As the dryer heats up, the dryer ball releases steams to remove wrinkles and creases. It works on all kinds of fabrics–including, cotton, poly, and blends.
