It’s here! Mile High Mamas Holiday Gift Guide. The Baker’s Dozen.

It’s the yearly holiday list of the baker’s dozen of clever, thoughtful and creative gifts for everyone in the family. Black Friday is over (thank goodness) and now it’s time to shop locally. Of course every product or idea on this list is Colorado-based. From coffee and chocolates to theater tickets and donations to charity, please read my favorite picks for the 2011 holiday season. I even included a couple gifts for Fido this year. I always want to include so many more ideas, but I know that I would begin to bore all of you with too long of a list. Again, I’m so inspired by the incredible local entrepreneurs and companies that call Colorado home. From their charity work to their community focus, we are lucky Mile High Mamas to be surrounded by such inspirational people.

This week’s reviews included:

Karmiczen wrote about the latest version of the Hallmark Card Studio.

Hallmark logoI have not bought a single greeting card in almost five years. My relatives and friends love it when I make personal cards with pictures for them. I have used Card Studio 2004 and 2006 Deluxe very successfully for several years, so I was excited to review the 2009 version.

Alexa wrote about the Crib Tent II:

Our deluxe Cozy Crib Tent not only prevents climbing and falling…it keeps little limbs from getting stuck between crib rails! The safest crib tent ever! Ours not only encloses the top of the crib, it surrounds the entire interior with soft, safe netting.

Arms and legs can’t get wedged between slats, because the crib rails are shielded from top to bottom. Offers plenty of visibility, air circulation, and headroom. Keeps kitties out, too.

This is a cool product and great idea. One of my friends really loved this for her son who was crawling out of his crib all the time, but they weren’t ready to put him in a big bed, so they got him a cool “tent” for his bed. He loved it.

My daughter was so excited to put this on her bed…

KPiper reviewed the kidzui website for kids:

KidZui logo
I am guilty of bubble-wrapping my kids from the Internet.

The Internet is a teeter-totter of sheltering the kids from potential evil lurking in the vast world of the World Wide Web vs. providing freedoms necessary for skill development into the technical future that awaits.

Since protecting my kids comes first, I have been the parent who would not permit visits to a range of popular sites…so imagine my kid’s excitement when I told them they could try any game they wanted …
