Each pen as two ends – one for filling the nail and the other for doing designs so you can paint your nail one color and sketch a letter or mini drawing or design with another.

zip it bedding set

Zip It Bedding was at the top of my 12-year old sisters wish list this year. She loves the modern designs like chevron and aztec prints for girls (they also have designs aimed at boys). The Rock Princess set (pictured above) caught her eye because it combines a chevron print, colors she loves and peace signs. For older teens there are more simple/basic colors and styles available as well. The top blanket zips onto your bed so making your bed is as simple as zipping it up. Zip It bedding sets are available in twin or full size. Plus, the top blanket can be zipped in either way giving you two design options.

Gotcha covered pink zebra

The middle and high school years are all about discovering yourself and expressing who you really are. Gotcha Covered Notebooks offers notebooks in dozens of different designs. Each notebook design can be customized with a name on the cover as well as your choice of paper inside (such as college print, wide rule, or a sketch book). I was able to find notebooks that fit the personalities of the kids in my family ranging from 5 all the way up to adults. Pair  notebook with some fun colored pencils, gel pens or ink pens for a fun and practical gift.

    I like the practical gifts like bedding, facial brushes, and even musical instruments. These are mostly practical and even I would love them. Never understood the wild nail polish fascination but that’s why I need these lists. Great ideas for my gifts.
