My mom and sister are Gluten Intolerant. Whenever my mom eats gluten, she feels it the next day. Her entire body hurts. Sometimes, she is told something is gluten free, but finds out the next day that it wasn’t. On Nima’s site, they say 1 out of 3 “Gluten-Free” foods, actually contain gluten! So people who have to be gluten free, stear clear of so much, just in case. But now, thanks to this Nima Sensor, mom can try all types of food with a peace of mind. The Nima Sensor is easy to use. Just put a bit of the food inside a test capsule, and put it in the sensor…within just 3 minutes, it will tell you if there is gluten in the food. Easy! The Nima Sensor can fit in your purse or pocket. And you'll get 3 free test capsules with your Nima Sensor purchase. There’s also a Nima app (for iPhones and Androids) where people can share their findings of all types of packaged or restaurant food, so you can know without using one of your test capsules. You can even try Nima with a 60-day money back guarantee if you don’t love it. Eat more foods with a peace of mind knowing that they are truly gluten-free, with the Nima Sensor!
SensaCalm Weighted Blanket
This has been one of the most unique and needed gifts we have come across this season. Sensacalm has a line of therapeutic weighted blankets that help "Anxiety, Insomnia, Autism, ADHD, PTSD and sensory processing disorders". These blankets are filled with "Hypoallergenic and non-toxic polypropylene pellets", and can be weighted depending on the size and height of the user. These weighted blankets can help you sleep through the night, help reduce anxiety and stress, and help keep you calm, when feeling overwhelmed. They are great for people with autism, anxiety, ADD, or Sensory Processing Disorder.
These are great for children, teenagers, or adults. If you have trouble sleeping, keeping calm, or problems with anxiety, you definitely should look into these blankets.
They're custom made, so you can choose your fabrics pattern, add snaps, monogram it, or even add a soft backing to the blanket to make it even more cozy. They come filled with polyfil, so it's fluffy, like a comforter, but you can also get it without. The staff at SensaCalm is great, and can help you figure out what weight will be best for your needs. They really have a heart for helping you get the comfort and support you need with these blankets.
Rodan + Fields Skin Care
I am so excited to include Rodan + Fields to our gift guide this year! I have heard so many awesome things about this company and their skincare line, and am so excited to try them out. They have a regimen for every type of skin. Their top 4 lines are for Redefine, Reverse, Unblemish, and Soothe. I personally have terrible lines on my forehead…hello, 30! And am starting to see lines around my eyes and mouth as well. So Redefine is a great start for people who can relate to me...Goodbye Fine lines and wrinkles! For those who have problems with blemishes, you’ll want to check out the Unblemish line for acne. The Reverse line is great for those with any “skin discoloration concerns—from dullness to stubborn dark marks and age spots”, and Soothe is for those with sensitive skin.
You’d think all these products would be enough for one company, but Rodan + Fields does not stop there. They have lots of “extras” that will help your skin look younger and more vibrant. Like their Lip Renew Serum, or their Bright Eye Complex…and their Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, or Micro-Exfoliating Roller.
Then they have their awesome Lash Boost, which helps your eyelashes grow longer and more voluminous. If you haven’t seen before and after shots after use of this product, check them out, they’ll make you a believer! Throw in the Active Hydration Serum, and you won't have to worry anymore about dry skin. Definitely a must for all year 'round, but this winter is a must!
If you are having any skin problems, or you just need a boost for brighter and younger looking skin, check out what Rodan + Fields can do for you! With the 5 of us sisters, we are so excited to check out all of their products!

Hammacher Schlemmer is at it again with the coolest gifts of the season! We found this awesome Hand Reflexology Massager, that would be an awesome gift for anyone who may need a little extra relaxation.

We tried out their Food Sensitivity Test on one of the sisters. We knew she was sensitive to something, but weren't quite sure what exactly, so she was the perfect candidate. We ordered our test online, and received it in the mail within a few days. They sent a kit full of absolutely everything you need to do the test at home, including band-aids (our required some blood), and a pre-addressed envelope to mail the sample back.

The Split-Ender is something all of us girls have wanted to try for a while now. We all go back and forth, but currently, all 5 of us girls have long hair. Most of us are trying to grow it out even longer, so sometimes heading to those hair appointments can seem worthless. I'll sit in the chair and say "I'd like a trim, but can you cut off the least amount possible? Just the damaged ends?" Split-Ender is a Split-End Trimmer, that will safely cut your split ends and dead ends in minutes. The Split-Ender can even help save you money, since you can go longer between hair appointments. It's a cordless device that looks like a straight/curling iron, and you use it pretty much the same way. It snips the ends, and not the length. No more trying to pick out each split end with a pair of scissors, Split-Ender does the job for you. They even have 2 different kinds. The Split-Ender PRO 2 has trims of 1/4” of the ends…and the Split Ender PRO is the professional version, where you can change from 1/4” to 1/8” trims! You can get either with an American or European Cord too. Each one comes with a charger, a cleaner, and a carrying bag too. No more heading to the salon for a quick trim, you can save money and do it yourself with the Split Ender!

Pixel Eyewear Computer Glasses
When I first started blogging, I went from barely any screen time to over 12 hours a day. I was on the computer so much, and my eye sight started deteriorating.

These glasses can help protect your eyes from the blue light that is emitted from your computers, tablets, phones, etc. It helps protect your vision and can also help you sleep better at night.

We ran into a company called Woodworker's Hardware, and absolutely fell in love with their wooden pantry pull out units. "You mean, we can pull out all the shelves to our pantry and be able to see and reach ALL of the food in there?" Say no more, we were sold! We got this one for my mom, and our pantry is the best it has ever been. We cannot say enough good things about how awesome it is! We ended up doing both doors, so now we have 2 pull-out units. It makes finding food so easy, and we don't waste anymore, because we forget what is in there.

Oakiwear Rain Boots
I am in love with my new Rain Boots from Oakiwear. They are actually my very first pair (remember, we're from Southern California, we don't see much rain). I have seen rain boots around a lot, but I never really liked the styles, or most of them seemed cheap and flimsy. But these Rain Boots from Oakiwear are super stylish, and very high quality. They are made of flexible rubber and have a 1 1/4" Block Heel.
