Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares, Peppermint Bark Celebration Tin, 5.4 oz.
Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares, Peppermint Bark Celebration Tin, 5.4 oz.
Offered by TheNewMall
Price: $12.75

3.0 out of 5 stars Stingy tin, better off getting the basic packaging, December 14, 2014
These squares are delicious, but the "celebration tin" is nothing to celebrate as it only has 13 pieces of chocolate. And no, that isn't a fluke as the nutritional information on the side actually states there are 13 pieces! The tin is very nice, but only the very bottom is filled with chocolate. We ordered these for ourselves, so we weren't embarrassed to give this as a gift. But your money would go way further if you purchased a deluxe bag at your local grocery or club store!


Cuisinart Silicone Oven Mitts 2-Pack (Purple)
Cuisinart Silicone Oven Mitts 2-Pack (Purple)
Offered by Kitchen Mega Mart
Price: $29.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Great heavy duty mitts, December 14, 2014
I purchased this purple set from Sam's about six months ago and used them for grilling, when pulling a pizza out of the oven, etc. I used only these last month for Thanksgiving food prep and they definitely saved my skin from a few painful burns when roasting the turkey. I'm a decent cook, and I mostly use cast iron in my oven... so inevitably accidents will happen on occasion. These mitts don't "fit like a glove," and they're not supposed to anyway. One entire mitt covers my arm all the way to the elbow, and if needed I can bend my hand to grab hot handles. This is a great back up set, or for those who need a little extra safety when they cook.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thanks, but no thanks!, December 12, 2014
Purchased at Sam's for under ten bucks. As these slippers fell apart after just two months of light wearing around the house, even the "fair" price was paying too much! A snug fit when wearing your normal size, and they keep your feet super warm. The soles are still clean, however the entire right slipper has pulled apart from the footbed. So disappointed in the overall basic lack of quality, and really NOT worth even returning directly to Isotoner for a replacement (they charge you $5, according to the warranty on the box).

4.0 out of 5 stars 2.0 upgrade, December 3, 2014
Compared to the previous two albums, the 2.0 editions are definitely enhanced - bigger (twice the space, because there are now more discs being released), much sturdier (this feels like a REAL album, and not the Disney Parks type of books), and with the 5 power discs included (the featured two Lion King, Aladdin, King Louie, and Calhoun are exactly what you get) this means that the retail is bumped up to over twice what the older albums originally cost.

This is a bull's eye exclusive (at least that's what the T website claims {the Marvel Superheroes album is a TRU exclusive}), and it retails for twenty-four ninety-nine. According to the find in store feature, this album is widely available in stores. However, I ordered it right before Thnxgvng and it was delivered less than a week later. I ordered it on a whim to go with other 2.0 gifts, and even my husband was impressed at the overall improved quality of the newer 2.0 items. Definitely worth getting, but NOT worth overpaying - you'll shell out enough just collecting all 40 discs!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for your Frozen fan!, December 2, 2014
This Frozen comforter completes the look with any Frozen sheetset. The colors are vibrant and beautiful, the images on the comforter are Anna and Elsa on one side and a field of flowers on the other. I wish manufacturers would go back to cotton blends in their bedding, but overall this is a nice addition to your girl's bedroom decor.

The packaging is super compact (though the plastic was torn in one end) and arrived in the typical oversized Amazon box (so no worries if you are sending this as a gift). I paid a retail of twenty-nine here on Amazon about a week ago, and now it's even lower at about twenty-four and change. Absolutely worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bedtime solution, December 2, 2014
This sheet set is nearly perfect. Very soft, obviously 100% cotton (yay!), washes and dries beautifully, and the colors make it perfect for just about any pastel decor. However the two "cons" include the oversized fit of the set (HUGE pillowcase, and both the fitted and flat sheets hang down very far on the mattress so they have to be folded in tightly), as well as the color of the top flat sheet being very pink and NOT a true purple.

The retail of thirty is a bit pricey when compared to the microfiber sets. However, you are getting a quality item that if cared for will last for YEARS The only Frozen characters are on one side of the pillowcase, the aqua fitted sheet has silhouettes of Anna and Elsa, and the pinky/purple flat sheet has a snowflake motif. Very subtle and understated, so no growing out of this pattern any time soon. Your girl will be counting down till it's time to turn in!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely necessary, November 30, 2014
We replaced the mattress pads on the queen and twin beds in our home. Gotta say, WHAT a difference. We originally bought our old ones from the mattress store - obviously overpriced, bad quality, and NOT at all worth it when compared to the ones made by Pinzon. Extremely reasonable Amazon pricing too, though if you're on a bargain hunt you may want to wait a while as I saw the twin size being offered for as low as fifteen and the queen as low as thirty.

Fit is generous, but that's just fine by us. We use thicker sheetsets, so we haven't really noticed the pads trapping heat (which isn't a bad thing in the winter). I didn't notice a chemical smell when I first unpacked the covers, and I washed and air dried without any problems. This is shipped in "frustration free packaging" which for my order meant a HUGE box and the covers in open plastic sacks inside. Overall, a great buy for a must-have household item!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great NBC tote!, November 22, 2014
I've had this tote for years, was a LE from Disney Store around 2011/2012. This bag is useful for everything - books, groceries, random stuff in the car, holds up really well from trick or treating (unlike other Disney totes, this hasn't burst a seam or ripped), etc. I think the original retail price was either two-fifty or two-ninety-five. Either way, much MUCH lower than what's currently being asked third-party.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and light mittens, November 19, 2014
These Baddabings are really great as a backup or extra-layer pair of mittens! The Columbia name is prominent and the colors match very well with Columbia coats. Lots of wiggle room, and the clip is easy for smaller hands to fasten.

Yes, these fit smaller than the tag states and the fleece material is thin. However, already knowing this AND buying the mittens for just a few dollars definitely makes this item a must buy. The small size easily fits up to a bigger-framed six year old; the medium snuggly fits a nine year old. The solid, darker colors make it easy for either a boy or girl to use without worrying at all about being too "girly."

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I stocked up!, November 13, 2014
Ordered a few jars of these on clearance for a few bucks each from VS over the summer, and I'm happy I did!!! The lotion is incredibly moisturizing (I have majorly DRY, sensitive skin), and it does a great job keeping the skin on my feet, elbows, and knees happy. The scent is very much Hawaiian - not at all like coconut suntan lotion, much more like a VERY fresh orchid lei. If you're sensitive to scents, this would be great to mix with another lotion or just wait a few minutes until the scent mellows... Doesn't last all day, but definitely lingers for a while. Love this, hope VS offers a similar scent next year!
