ONE Friday left until Christmas gift idea: Fisher Price retro toys!

There's only ONE Friday left until Christmas -- today! We have just six days until Christmas!

Today's holiday gift ideas are dear to my heart, as I have a soft spot for the toys I grew up with - Fisher Price Retro Toys!

My children already have a collection of vintage Fisher Price classic toys that I've picked up for them at rummage sales and resales over the years, but I absolutely love that Fisher Price has brought back some of the favorites we grew up with too. One of the things that made these toys so great was that none of them needed batteries! They ran on windup or crank power, which meant you had to utilize motor skills and put forth a little effort for the toys to entertain you. They were also so sophisticated for their time! (Heck, they still are -- I remember taking apart a See and Say with my Dad just to see the little record and speaker inside that played the animal sounds -- all without batteries.)

Choose from:


The last one's near and dear to my heart. I have had a longtime obsession with the Fisher Price Movie Viewer as a kid. (Remember, we grew up in an era where cartoons on demand didn't exist! The idea that I could hold my favorite cartoon characters in my hand and watch them whenever I wanted? Amazing.) Sometime in the mid-90s I began collecting old viewers and cartridges, and I have a tote full of them now:

You might be surprised, but my sons love playing with these. There's something about controlling the speed of each movie yourself -- plus, being able to crank it backwards and watch all the action in reverse!

Most of these Fisher Price reproductions also weren't around when my kids were little... but I have young nieces who I'm delighted to spoil with these now!

I have seen these Fisher Price Classics in stock at Walmart and Kohl's too if you're looking to pick something up locally.

FREE shipping from Cheryl's Cookies!

Today is National Free Shipping Day, where many retailers are also offering free-in-time-for-Christmas shipping. One of those retailers is Cheryl's Cookies! Use code HOLLYSHIP for free shipping on featured items.

As an aside, I love Cheryl's Cookies. I have used them for years for all kinds of occasions -- pretty much everything celebratory that you might send flowers for. My thinking is that I personally would enjoy a big batch o' cookies much more than a bouquet of flowers, and apparently many of my friends and family members do too. I've sent cookies to celebrate a new baby, a wedding, to thank an out-of-state cousin for letting us all hang out at her house on short notice (and feeding us!) -- you get the idea.

Their cookies are fantastic, the prices are reasonable for what you get, and they have a lot of specials too. I was just signing onto their site to send Christmas cookies to some special people in our lives -- free shipping's a bonus!

Is this really the best text for this offer?

I was browsing Coupons.com and spotted this ad for Always Discreet.

Honestly, is this really the best text for this offer? I'm not trying to make light of this product or what it's for, but I get the feeling Walgreens kind of is.

I mean, to me, a runny nose would never "feel like no big deal," let alone this..!
