Here’s another great site for children’s gifts: SmarterKids.com. Under “Parents Favorites” I recommend “Tigger Has Breakfast” or
“Where is Bear?” two cute books young ones will love. An excellent
introduction to computers is “Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: Toddler,” which
builds mouse skills, teaches opposites, and introduces colors and
“Curious George” and “Guess How Much I Love You” (two of my girls’
favorites) are found in “Bestsellers,” at 30 percent off the publisher’s
price. You’ll also find the “Little People Main Street” to provide hours
of fun and creative play.
For older kids, a sure hit is “Roller Coaster Tycoon,” a creative
computer game. Find this under “Bestsellers” in “Grades 7-9.”
If you’re like me, you’re up to your elbows in holiday baking. Make
it easier on yourself with Cooking.com’s Gingerbread Cookie Mix, an old-fashioned recipe complete with frosting for hair and
candies for eyes. Or choose the Gingerbread House Kit — an activity for the whole family.
Christmas isn’t complete for me without my grandmother’s Spritz (a
Swedish cookie.) You can make your own with this Cookie Press. Complete with 20 interchangeable disks and six pastry nozzles,
it’s a bargain at $11.95
Wouldn’t Belgian Waffles be perfect for Christmas brunch? Try the
jumbo waffles you’ll get from the Chrome Premium Belgian Waffle Iron. It’s nonstick and comes with a free set of gourmet waffle mixes.
Cooking.com has a large selection of gourmet gift baskets, too. My
personal favorite is the Hors d’Oeuvres Gift Basket — a little of everything and perfect for any occasion.
Christmas is just 15 days away. Try these two sites today, and
you’re sure to be feeling better about “wrapping things up.” And
remember, you can find all my past columns over the weekend at the
bottom of my column under “Go to Maya Clark’s Archives.”
