The Mommy Avenger’s 2015 Holiday Gift Guide



reindeer appleWhat fun are the holidays without some yummy treats to indulge in?  Mrs. Prindable’s offers delicious caramel apples for every special occasion.  We love the special Ralphie Reindeer jumbo caramel apple with milk chocolate, pecans and walnuts.  Absolutely divine!  It’s also a great size to share with your entire family before sitting down and watching a family Christmas movie.







We love sending holiday cheer through special Christmas cards and Minted is our favorite place to order them.  So easy to assemble and create a unique message with photographs, you will have your cards done in no time!


Here-Comes-the-Pumpkin-King-1995QXD6027-LOne of my favorite traditions is giving our kids a Christmas ornament each year that represents something they did or enjoyed that year. Always, we pick up ornaments from places we have been throughout the year, as well as an individual ornament for each child.  It’s fun to look at our tree to see the things our kids love so much represented on the tree.  When they grow up, they can take their ornaments with them to start their own family Christmas trees.  I have found a great place to pick up some of their ornaments is at Hallmark, since they have their yearly keepsake ornaments.  I am loving them this year, especially Here Comes the Pumpkin King ornament and the 9 3/4 Platform from Harry Potter.  You can find tons of great ornaments that will suit your family at Hallmark!Platform-2495QXI2119-L




home alone storybook








Home Alone: The Classic Illustrated Storybook –One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time has arrived this holiday season in the form of a wonderful story book.  I love seeing this great story in print to add to our collection of Christmas books to read over the holiday season.  Based on the story written by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus, this book is illustrated by Kim Smith.  You will love it!



mmsBuddy the Elf said that singing songs loud and clear is the best way to spread Christmas cheer.  Well, clearly he didn’t realize you could give personalized M&M’s!  So very simple to create, customizing your own mix of M&M’s does not take long but will create a lasting memory.  Print a picture of your own family and wish everyone happy holidays on your favorite candies and spread the holiday wishes around to neighbors and friends, have a candy dish out for visitors, the possibilities are endless!
