Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Nostalgia Electrics 'Hot Air Popcorn Party Kit' Review/Giveaway

My family and I can't help it but when we are playing games, doing crafts, playing video games, or watching movies, we are always eating popcorn. It is one of those things that is so tasty and easy to make. Usually, I just pop a bag into the microwave and well that is pretty much it. Of course, microwave popcorn just isn't as good as air popped popcorn. You know the popcorn you get from the movie theater and before you know it you have ate the whole tub. When, Nostalgia Electrics offered to send me a Hot Air Popcorn Party Kit, I knew my family was going to be in for a treat.

Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Bike Glow Review

I can remember when I was little going outside at night with my friends and riding bikes. At times there was a lot of crashing into each other, especially if it was really dark out. But, we had a blast anyways. Now, there are these really cool lights that you can wrap onto your bike and glow at night. Such a great safety feature, but also really cool too. Bike Glow has sent me a purple safety light to review, which made my little girl thrilled, since she was finally able to ride her bike at night.
