Mamas Spot 2018 Must Have Holiday Gift Guide!

I am so excited to share with you the Mamas Spot 2018 Holiday Gift Guide! I love giving unique gifts that make a lasting impression and I wanted to create a gift guide this year that will help you to do the same! We all want to give something truly unique and thoughtful, but it can be hard to actually nail down these items when presented with so many gift options during the holidays. That’s why I am here today to help make your shopping a little easier and stress free.

All of the gifts in this guide were carefully curated with YOU (A Mamas Spot reader) in mind! I hope you will be inspired by this guide and it will help to free up your time to do the things that really matter this holiday season and spend time with the ones you love.

For those wanting to learn a new language: Rosetta Stone

Priced at only $5.99 a month!

I have always believed that some of the best gifts are experiences and what greater experience could you give your loved ones this year than being able to learn a new language? This year you can give the gift of a new language with Rosetta Stone.

Rosetta Stone makes learning a new language easy, fun and bonus it’s incredibly affordable! You don’t have to be a world traveler in order to use Rosetta Stone though. The app. is suited for just about anyone. Do you know someone who homeschools or has a child trying to learn a new language? Give them a Rosetta Stone subscription!

Rosetta Stone Features:
•    Phrasebook: Learn to speak key phrases used in real-life situations. Nothing obscure, just completely useful phrases.
•    Audio Companion: Extend your learning experience to where ‘speaking’ is not possible or desirable.
•    Stories: This feature is really cool! You can perfect your pronunciation by reading aloud a full story and comparing your voice to that of a native speaker. This is a really great way to test yourself and see how well you are doing.
•    Rosetta Stone Offline: Download a lesson to learn anywhere you go. No internet? No problem!
TruAccent speech recognition allows you to speak the words you have learned and the app. will let you know if you have it right.

The structure of the courses immediately had me hooked. All the language courses are broken up into different topics like travel, shopping, work and school and more. So if there is a specific topic that you feel will apply to you more often you can purposefully brush up on those more.
Rosetta Stone uses many techniques to teach that make it a full learning experience and not just a test of memorization.

With plans starting at just $5.99 a month it’s also a super affordable gift! Make 2019 the year that friends, family and you learn a new language!

For the Traveler:Tinggly

This is definitely unique and won't be a duplicate gift for anyone unless your relatives and friends are geniuses like you! ;) Tinggly offers gift collections and every collection holds hundreds of amazing experiences! From island hopping in Thailand, whale-watching in Iceland, or a fabulous Game of Thrones tour in Croatia.

As their website states: "Give stories, not stuff".

Tinggly gift offers a personal personalized note on every voucher for free. The best part is that you don't have to choose a specific experience, the recipient can choose their own experiences so you can never go wrong with Tinggly!

For Baby (Or new parents): Nanobébé

Think all baby bottles are the same? Be prepared to be schooled. Nanobébé is definitely in a league of its own when it comes to bottles and feeding systems. It's a revolutionary new way to feed your little one. Nanobébé is the first bottle to preserve essential breastmilk nutrients. It is the first bottle to truly mimic breastfeeding. The bottles warm two times faster to save you time and keep the milk full of all the nutrients you want for your little one. I absolutely love everything about the Nanobébé and I know any new parent on your list this year will too!

For The Kiddos: Emagine A Tick Tock Turtle

Nighttime can be a difficult time for any parent. Getting kids to sleep through the night can be one heck of a challenge and sometimes no matter what tricks or tips you try nothing will work. I recently came across the perfect solution though and I am excited about the Tick Tock Turtle from Emagine A.

One of my favorite features is that the Tick Tock Turtle will let your kids know when it’s too early for them to get up as well. We all know how bad the 4 AM wakeup call is and how hard it can be to get a child to go back to sleep. With Tick Tock Turtle your kid can easily see that the turtle is in “nighttime” mode and that it’s not time to get up yet. This makes it so you can sleep better too!

This is the perfect gift for little ones on you list and they will love all the colors this cute little turtle comes in!

For Anyone: Skillshare

When it comes to the holidays, I am always trying to find new and creative gifts that will really be appreciated. I don’t want to get anything considered typical or ordinary, and I really don’t want to accidentally get someone something they already have. This is why this year I am so excited about the gift of Skillshare! As kids we sometimes take for granted learning something new, but as adults we realize that learning new skills is a way to move forward and grow.

Skillshare makes this process even easier with their Gift Cards. Simply select a 3, 6, or 12-month gift card, enter your recipient’s name and email address, and your delivery date. Your giftee will  be able to enjoy access to over 25,000 online classes on just about any subject you could imagine. Whether you’re looking to pick-up new skills for fun or trying to learn a new program for your job, Skillshare has you covered.You can find classes on everything from illustration to graphic design to marketing.. So now imagine giving a loved one the gift of a new skill or hobby — how cool is that?! Do you have someone on your list that would love to learn photography? What about watercolor or sewing?

Go here to purchase your Skillshare Gift Card and give your loved ones a truly unique gift they will always remember!

I hope these amazing items really help to get your shopping jump started! Please don't hesitate to let us know what gifts are your favorite this year! Happy Holidays!!
