2018 Valentine's Day Gift Guide: Take Fashion Up a Notch with Dazi Ties #neckties #mensfashion

     This Valentine's Day, help your hubby step up his style with DAZI's handmade skinny ties! We love when quality meets affordability, so we were very excited when we stumbled upon DAZI. They make each tie by hand using gorgeous imported fabrics to ensure high-end quality. On top of that, each and every tie is competitively priced, making them a fantastic purchase that won't break the bank. The ties we've chosen to gift this Valentine's Day retail for $28 on the DAZI site. When we looked for skinny ties at our local retailer, we couldn't find any that came close to DAZI's quality for less than $40.

2017 Holiday Gift Guide: Catch the Fox Game #GoliathGames #giftsforkids

     Looking for a fun family game to play with little ones? The Catch the Fox Game has brought lots of laughs to our family, which is why we've included it in this year's Holiday Gift Guide! Created for kids ages 4 and up, both the concept and the rules are simple to understand, making it an easy game for everyone to play together. 

     The object of the game is to save 5 chickens by filling up your chicken coop. This game can be played with up to 4 players. Right off the bat, the game starts with all players giving their best cluck. The person with the best cluck goes first. Each player will have to take a turn stuffing chickens into the greedy fox's pants. Roll the die to see how many chickens to add into the fox’s pockets, and push his head one time. When the greedy fox's pants become too full, they drop and the chickens will need to be rescued and placed in your coop. Assembly is incredibly easy and takes only a few minutes.
