Looking for some fun, out of the ordinary gift ideas (or stocking stuffers) for this Christmas. Here are 3 my family has had a blast with. Okay one of them has just been my daughter but the other two our whole family has been having fun with. Flipeez, Ice Cream Magic, and Pop Chef are “think outside the box” type gifts to give. First up I will share the one that was really geared toward my daughter and I would think of this as more of a stocking stuffer.
Flipeez are the fun, fanciful, animal action-hats that let kids of all ages “Flip their lid”! From the makers of Stompeez, the 2012 pop-when-you-walk slipper sensation that sold 4 million units in 6 months, Flipeez are destined to become this season’s next BIG thing! Available in 4 precocious and colorful styles – Kitty, Monster, Monkey, and Puppy – each has its own distinct “action”. Arms open or tails wag with a simple squeeze of the puff-ball in the tassel. Flipeez boast a super soft inner fleece lining and knit outer hat that allows one-size fits-all flexibility. Whether you are 4 or 104, this functional fashion accessory is guaranteed to bring lots of smiles to everyone!
If you can’t tell from the smile on my daughters face, she adored her Flipeez hat. Instead of the boring hat to keep her head warm during the cold days, she can now have a cute little hat that she “flips” over. I loved watching her make the little ears flap up! I had a cute little video of her, but it’s not uploading at the moment, so you will just have to trust me when I say she was darling singing the little Flipeez theme song. Great gift idea for the boy or girl in your life who likes to have fun!
Ice Cream Magic
Ice Cream Magic is the first, personal Ice Cream Maker for all ages! Moms can control the ingredients, from heavy cream to low fat cream, favors – while the bowl size is the perfect size to keep portions in control. All you do to make it, is shake it! And in just 3 minutes, your kids can enjoy the soft ice cream they made themselves. Add sprinkles, fruits, any topping to make a perfectly fun treat that’s fun to make and eat with this great year-round snack-tivity!
The Ice Cream Magic kit comes with an outer cone, a freezing bowl, a lid, and a swirl cap. There’s even a little measuring scoop and Recipe Guide. Fun anytime, it also makes a great Birthday Party activity and a memorable favor that guests can take home. It’s available for $9.99 at retailers nationwide.
Check out our video from when we put the Ice Cream Magic to work:
This is a fun way to make homemade ice cream in 3 minutes. While we did Vanilla, you can do chocolate, cookies and cream, and a few other flavors. Using ingredients from scratch, I love that I know what I am putting in the ice cream. No preservatives, corn syrup, and all those other things I can’t usually pronounce. It’s just a few ingredients and roughly 3 minutes later you have tasty ice cream. Ours did turn out more on the liquid side, so since then we have added a little more salt and shaking! Liquidy or not, it tasted delish!!
Pop Chef is the new, fast and easy way to make fabulous edible creations! The secret is its3-in-one action – which shapes, pops, and creates stars, circles, hearts, and more without the mess or hassle of knives or cookie cutters. With Pop Chef you can design eye popping snacks, party platters, meals, even gifts like a pro! It’s a snack-tivity that’s even safe for kids to use. Perfect for use on fruits, cheeses, vegetables, breads and more, Pop Chef lets you “push” and “pop” your way through show stopping food preparations in seconds. The 10 piece Pop Chef set is available for $10.99 at retailers everywhere.
Pop Chef is a great way to have a little fun with your family. Make shaped fruits, fruit baskets, sandwiches, and much more. It’s easy to use and my kids love when I make their lunch sandwiches using the Pop Chef. You simply push the Pop Chef into whatever it is you are wanting to shape and then pop out the fruit, bread, cheese, etc. My kids love the fact it’s easy enough for them to use.
