Review and Giveaway: Looking for a gift? Try CoppinsGifts.com–CLOSED

CoppinsGifts.com has become one of the largest online gift retailers in the US.  CoppinsGifts.com provides their customers with top name gifts such as Boyd’s Bears, Precious Moments, and more.

Recently CoppinsGifts.com has started carrying DaVinci Beads.  They are similar to the popular Pandora beads but much more affordable.  There are so many to choose from like initials, animals, birthstones, family beads and many more.

I’ve seen the billboards for Pandora beads and thought they were pretty until I saw the price. $20-$735 per bead!  Yes per BEAD.  DaVinci beads…much more affordable.  A bracelet starts at only $9.99.  Beads are only $6.99.

Here are just a few of the cute beads I like:

Davinci Baby Buggy Bead at CoppinsGifts.com

Davinci Sun Dangle at CoppinsGifts.com
Pink Foil Bead at CoppinsGifts.com

I could post about 50 here but I’ll spare you.  It’s not just the DaVinci Beads though that will have you browsing the site.  They also offer Pillow Pets, Webkinz, Zhu Zhu pets,  and still more.

You can also visit CoppinsGifts.com blog page for new releases of items, gift advice and other helpful information when shopping for a gift. The holidays will be here before you know it.

If you have trouble deciding on just the right piece of your outfit, jewelrystylist.com offers free jewelry consulting by Erica Jill.

I love jewelry. I feel naked without it. I sat looking over the site trying to decide on just one piece to review. I literally spent 45 minutes saying maybe this one, no no this one, ooo I like that one. Maybe I should have asked for consulting. In the end I chose this piece:

Gold Pear and Leaf Drop Necklace

I love the design.  It’s delicate and intricate.  Also sparkly, i love things that sparkle!  I couldn’t wait to try it on when I received it.  I wore it with an every day v-neck t-shirt. The piece held up well. I wore it for several days. I even wore it to work and while I slept. (I’m sure that’s not recommended but like I said, I feel naked without my jewelry) The lobster claw clasp made it easy for me to put on. 

see sparkly!

The piece is light and eye-catching. At only $21 it would be affordable sparkle for your perfect dress.  Jewelrystylist.com offers many more designs so head on over check out the website.  www.jewerlystylist.com

Review Summary:  I would recommend jewelrystylist.com to anyone looking for affordable jewelry pieces of any occasion.  Since the prices are great you could even afford to get say a tiara for your little ones princess costume for halloween (check out the Small Bridal Tiara for $25!) or something to add to your festive holiday attire this year.   (Who doesn’t want to save a little money during the holidays?).

Review and Giveaway: Soapsoundz Hand Soaps and Sanitizers–CLOSED

I work in a hospital. There are signs up everywhere about washing hands. There are hand sanitizer foams outside patient rooms. It’s drilled into us as direct patient care workers, wash your hands! This is all for a good reason. Not just hospital workers but everyone. Washing your hands is one of the best and easiest ways to prevent from spreading germs and getting sick.

I have to remind my kids to wash their hands in the bathroom. They sneeze into their hands, either wash or use hand sanitizer. Children, especially now that most schools are back in session, come in contact with lot of other kids. How many kids touch the restroom stall handle? Maybe more importantly, how many kids actually wash their hands if someone isn’t standing right over them? Maybe best not to dwell on that. With the start of school I’m a little more diligent about cleaning and sanitizing the door knobs, the flush handle on the toilet, and the knobs on the faucet. But how do I get my kids to wash their hands and wash them properly? Soap Soundz comes along!

hygiene heroes 3 pack

Soap Soundz has hand soaps and sanitizers that appeal to your children. There are also Soap Soundz for the seasons (Halloween, Christmas, etc). So what makes Soap Soundz so unique from other hand soaps and sanitizers? When you pump the hand soaps it plays a song or recording for 20 seconds. That’s the amount of time that you should wash your hands. Did you know that? Yep it’s true. 20 seconds, warm water, and friction. (I know, it’s drilled into me remember?)

Soap Soundz come in different scents as well. My boys and I were looking over the varieties. The boys were all about trying the Hygiene Heroes soaps. You can listen to the sounds they make online: Click here to listen to check it out

I was interested in trying some of the holiday soaps. They come in great scents like: apple cinnamon, sugar cookie, and winterberry to name a few. They have soaps for Halloween and Valentine’s day too! 

Some seasonal Soap Soundz

We got to try the Soap Soundz hand soaps in Seasons Winterberry and Sugar Cookies, Hygiene Heroes Lord Viral (scent Meteor Melon) and Captain Clean hands (in Rocket Rasberry).  We also received the Hand Sanitizer.  It makes really cool robot/computer like sounds when you press the pump like “Dispensing sanitizer solution” .  It says 4 different phrases.  The scent of these products are great too.

As an added Mom bonus I could hear if my kids were actually washing their hands or not if I was outside of the bathroom.

Check out the website.  There is a fun and informative E-brochure on Soap Soundz site as well.

There’s an old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”  So true.  This is an easy and fun way to help prevent colds and flu.

Review Summary:  Soap Soundz is reasonably priced and offers benefits that other hand soaps and sanitizers just don’t.  It’s a great reminder for all of us just how long we really should be washing our hands.  The customer services is friendly.  Shipping was fast and accurate.  I would say yes definitely get this to use in your house for back to school and flu season.

Soap Soundz is offering THREE FFCandM readers a three pack of Soap Soundz!
