Cable drops on desktops and texting glove mittens,
Pens made of metal and dividers that fit in,
An iPad combined with a keyboard to sing,
these are a few of my favorite things.

Each year, my husband has a tough job – finding gifts for me! This year, I thought I’d make his life much easier.

Cable Clips

I love cable drops with a passion – a passion. They keep your cords off of the floor, and on top of your nightstand and desk! Clip all the things!

Texting Mittens

If you live in the northern half of the United States, you know the struggle. Must respond to text, but so cold. With texting mittens, you don’t have to choose.

Space Pen

Ever have a pen that will not work because the ink is so cold? This pen is the answer. It went to the moon, so it can handle your North Dakota winters.

Kitchen Drawer Dividers

I have spent countless hours organizing all of my kitchen drawers crafting dividers together that I found on Pinterest only for it to be all mixed together again by careless tiny humans (children). These dividers are more likely to support kitchen organization than my current solution. Convincing members of my household to adhere to the kitchen guidelines – less likely.

iPad Mini

My husband wants a new one to play Clash of Clans. It’s a problem, but it keeps him happy.

Learn to Play Keyboard

I think my family should learn things. My three-year-old learned sign language from YouTube Kids, so he should have the piano down by age four.

Amazon Echo Dot

We love our Echo, but I’d like another one for upstairs. I use it most for making grocery lists, but Alexa is pretty handy for making shopping lists, ordering things, playing music and asking all kind of questions. Think of her like your hands-free digital assistant on your counter top.
