SparkleShock Gift Ideas (La Familia)

In continuing with my Holiday gift selections, the following are gifts I think would be great for those people whom will never go away – your family! However, just because they may be family doesn’t mean they can’t live a life of SparkleShock and these gifts continue to help them do just that. 

For the Mom Who “Doesn’t Want a Gift” 


As a call-out, I would like to let my future family know that I most certainly WILL continue to ask and expect Christmas and Birthday gifts. That being said, most Mothers I know always say “Oh, no don’t get me anything…I have everything I need”. More often than not, they don’t mean it (and take it from me, I have actually listened to this lament one year – bad idea.), so always remember to get them a gift anyway. And make sure it’s thoughtful like a subscription to a Tea of the Month Club. Teavana offers a really nice one in which you can select a 6 or 12 month membership. The idea behind this gift is to make sure that mom takes some time out every month to relax and enjoy her new tea. It’s healthy too! 

 For the Dad You Can Get Anything for and He’ll Love/Use It 


Dad’s have to be the easiest people on the planet to shop for. First off, it helps that they’re men and men aren’t usually too picky about their gifts. Second of all, Dads really just care about getting a gift that will either make their lives a bit easier or give them the opportunity to completly slack off. That is why this silk PJ set from Brooks Brothers is perfect! Dads don’t really appreciate the luxury of an awesome fabric like cashmere or silk until they try it on and once he does, he’ll be hooked! 

For the Sister Whom Thinks Everything That’s Yours is Hers 


There must be some unwritten rule between sisters that not only are you supposed to share parents, but you’re supposed to share clothes, accessories, and everything else too! Well, this hair straigntener by Remington is the perfect thing to prevent that! Everyone knows, you’re not supposed to share hair accessories and once your sis sees this, she won’t want to! These are really cute because they come in 4 different patterns and are great quality flat irons. You can find them at Target

For the Annoying Brother 


Here’s an easy gift to get your bro to leave you alone for awhile, the Adult Swim In A Box DVD set. This set is a great collection of the 1st seasons of shows including Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Moral Oral, Sealab 2021, and many others. The set also has unreleased pilots of some Adult Swim shows that never got to make it to the small screen. This will shut him up…and make you both laugh at the same time! 

For the Lil’ Munchkin  

Kids and babies are so much fun to shop for because you can get them pretty much anything that lights up, makes noise, or can be played with and they’re happy. I personally always enjoyed magnetic refridgerator letters, so I selected these really cute stuffed felt letters for the little wordsmith on your list. They’re different because they’re made of felt instead of plastic and come in such cute colors! Adorable!

Christmas is now only 1 day away…Happy Shopping!
