Kelly's Lucky You 2011 Holiday Gift Guide Gift Idea for a Couple That “big ticket” item you buy for each other

Sealy Posturpedic Mattress

Why is it important to get a good night's sleep? 1. Sleep lets your mind and body renew. From memory to healing, your body uses the time you are sleeping to refresh and renew. Reducing inflammation, fighting disease, strengthening your immune system – there’s a lot going on while you sleep. 2. People who get a good night’s sleep make smarter and healthier decisions. Cognitive abilities are stronger when you’ve had enough, quality rest. This even makes it easier to lose weight. 3. A good night’s sleep helps keep your heart healthy. Experts have linked heart disease and sleep disorders. Getting enough sleep and getting the right kind of sleep helps avoid cardiovascular disease and strokes.

What to look for when choosing a mattress brand? 1. Trusted brand that owns and operates it’s own bedding plants 2. Leader in the Science of Sleep 3. An environmentally responsible company 4. Fire-retardant, chemical-free materials 5. Available at reliable, accessible retailers After looking at those five factors, I chose Sealy – the Sealy mattress business began in 1881. This company knows mattresses and good night's sleep! For three decades, Sealy has been number one in market share.

He will hear "awwwww" and get hugs and kisses from all the women in his life with this idea. Give matching, personalized name bracelets to daughter (s), mother, and grandmother! I did this a year or two ago and we all love wearing our bracelets - when we're together or any time.

She started her business in 2007, making maternity belly rings she calls "Belly Charms". Belly Charms is 100% mommy-owned and operated. Sonya will take your order and create that special piece of jewelry to celebrate you or a special woman in your life. And if you have more than one child, Sonya can make multi-strand bracelets, as well!

Kelly's Lucky You 2011 Holiday Gift Guide Gift Idea for Kids (Boys and Girls) StinkyKids Doll and Book The author and originator of StinkyKids, Britt Menzies, is a mother, wife, and artist. Her education at Florida State University is in accounting and finance. When her first child was born, she left her Fortune 500 -company job to become a stay-at-home mom and that’s when her passion for art kicked in. One day, her daughter asked Britt to paint her as a ballerina and it became the inspiration for StinkyKids. There are ten StinkyKids characters. Each one has their own unique personality, talents and hobbies.

StinkyKids - Jen - 12 inch Soft Doll

Have you heard of Madame Alexander dolls? StinkyKids are made by the Madame Alexander Doll Company – a company who’s name equals quality. Founded in 1923, Madame Alexander has been making award winning dolls for over 88 years! The StinkyKids are soft and loveable! A tagline is “Love your StinkyKids… they’re so stinkin’ cute!!” and it’s true. They are cute, cuddly and attract children with their open faces and softness. Along with the name “StinkyKids”, fun for Rosie was the embroidery on the doll’s “tushie”. I leave that a secret for you to discover on your very own StinkyKid!

I highly recommend StinkyKids Dolls and Books for boys or girls (there are four boy dolls in the collection) not only for the quality of the dolls but the excellent messages in the fun-to-read books. FAO: Barnes and Noble:
