What a great idea for a mom, grandma or even a teacher that misplaces glasses!  After reading, just slip your glasses frames into the stylish ring to hold them safely until needed again.  Peeper Keepers are handmade using a variety of glass beads and crystals and they come in many attractive styles and colors or you can create a custom design.  Also great for holding an ID badge or worn by itself as a necklace!  Reasonably priced also offers free shipping on all orders over $99.

Greeting Card Cookies

Have you searched the shelves at your card store and simply can't find the right words to make someone special feel special?  For the person who has everything or anyone who likes cookies, consider these precious greeting card cookies.  They contain no trans-fat and are kosher.  You're sure to find an appropriate design because offers them in numerous styles for birthdays, holidays, and family occasions as well as several tempting flavors (lemon - my favorite!, cinnamon-gingerbread, and vanilla sugar cookie - which reminds me of shortbread) to suit nearly any holiday or occasion and are accompanied by a themed card where you can write a special message or have your words handwritten on the card and mailed straight to the recipient.

Finger Play Fun with Audio CD

This comprehensive felt finger play story set contains 56 individual felt pieces for 11 songs/stories/poems, including Five Little Monkeys, Mr. Alligator, and Pumpkins.  This set includes a knit glove (one-size-really-fits-all!  At 5'11", I have large hands and the glove fits great.) with Velcro dots for each finger.  The felt story pieces are easily attached and removed to each finger during singing and storytelling.  What an exciting new way to tell a story to hold a child's interest with the vivid colors of each piece!  My students sat very attentively wanting more each time one story ended.  Many of the felt sets (including this one) have high quality CDs with the stories, songs and poems ready to share that are enjoyable to children and adults!  How much easier could story time be?

Bibs and Bows

When these products showed up, I couldn't get them out of the box fast enough for my girls!  The attractive packaging led the way to well-made and extremely attractive bows and a bib.  SugarFlower offers many hair bow and bib color and print combinations to suit any outfit.  The bibs are double-sided with cotton print on one side and so-soft fuzzy on the other - great against baby's chest and neck!  They are generously sized to protect the special clothes that warrant such special bibs.  The bows are lovingly made with beautiful ribbons, trim, and beads.  Perfect for the little princess or fairy in your life!  Products are very reasonably priced for such high quality.
