GoodNCrazy Gift Ideas For Mom

FanCast.com
There are several of these ‘Free to View TV Shows on Your Computer’ sites. This one is new to me. I tried it out over the weekend and I had an Aha! moment. There are a lot of new TV shows out there and if I try to DVR them all (knowing I’ll never get around to watching them…) it fills up my DVR; (and let’s face it). What’s the real reason for DVR at MY house? For my kids to tape a gazillion Halloween shows all month long. And Ben10, and Wizards of Waverly Place and then it will be Holiday shows… and well… there isn’t room for the mom shows.

Another reason I’m checking out Fancast is to see if I can watch whole seasons of shows I’ve missed in the past. I’m only on Heroes Season 3 right now.. (DO NOT TELL me what’s going on right now!!) However, I was bummed to see they don’t have past seasons of Heroes. But they do have the pilots of most of the shows I want to check out this season. I watched most of ‘The Good Wife’… compelling and interesting, and probably I’ll watch a few more of that series when the hubby is away on business! Yay for my laptop and Fancast! Cost: FREE.

Shiseido Zen
I received a sample shower gel from a PR rep at blogworld… and I gotta say, I don’t love heavy perfumes. Haven’t since I was 16. I much prefer a lighter lotion or shower gel. I never smelled the Zen fragrance before and was expecting it to be a little like my grandma? WRONG. I totally like it, it’s light and flowery and not overwhelming. And the shower gel is so yummy in the morning when you are still waking up! I love how moisturizing it feels. Cost: $35 (Which at first I thought was kinda pricey… till I smelled it and used it. I’m buying one for my sister… DO NOT TELL her…shhhh!) I wish the screen was scratch N sniff.. all I can say is test this out next time you are in Macy’s or Sephora!

The Sacrificial Sock
Every Home Needs One! That’s what the website tells you…
At first I was all… huh? Are they serious….? Ohhhhhh now I get it, it’s a gag gift! How funny. How very very funny. Need a white elephant gift no one else will have at the boring office party this year…? Or do you have a funny friend who always comes up with the best stuff.. this year YOU will win that prize! Cost: $9.95 plus shipping.

No more lost socks. The Sacrificial Sock Saves the Day!
Oh my gosh the instruction page is hilarious… plus there is a whole discussion about how to accurately use your Smack Talk… here are some examples (as we all know how intimidated washer and dryers can be… ).

  • “Your mama was a Cement Mixer.”
  • “your lint trap smells like cat urine.”
  • “If I wanted it to take 5 hours to dry my jeans, I would have used my hair dryer.”
  • “The next load is dirty diapers.”

    and more… srsly funny.
