Are you ready for Valentine's Day?

Nothing says "I love you" like a soft and cuddly heart. SensaCalm's new Peaceful Pals are that...and more! Peaceful Pals are weighted stuffed animals (3 and 5 lb) that work as stuffed animals and as weighted lap pads. Peaceful Pals like Hannah the Heart are made with cuddle fabric on the front and satin fabric on the back. Perfect for those that like to cuddle up with a stuffed pillow for comfort, or for younger kids that aren't quite big enough for a weighted blanket. My daughter's been enjoying Hannah the Heart on her lap while she's been doing her homework lately and says it really helps her stay focused and not get overwhelmed so much. Now that's something that makes a mamas heart happy. Thinking it might be time to look into a weighted blanket next to help her with her restless nights!

Probably one of the top heart-shaped Valentine's candies are conversation hearts. I think Brach’s® knows this too because they have a wide variety of Conversation Hearts flavors. From tiny to large and berry or tropical fruit to sweet & sour they have it all! These have always been a fun favorite in our house. My daughter likes to try and make funny sentences out of the words on the hearts before she devours them. My husband on the other hand just likes to pop a handful in his mouth and suck on them until they dissolve. No matter which way you like to enjoy your Conversation Hearts be sure to share some with your sweetheart this year on Valentine's Day!

Be sure to check out the Brach’s® website for fun ways you can add an adorable touch of festive Valentine’s Day flair to all kinds of recipes, crafts, Valentine’s Day tablescapes and more!

If Conversation Hearts aren't your thing (which is crazy if you ask me) then you might enjoy something a little different like Cinnamon Lips, Purple Rain Jelly Beans or Cherry Hearts. The Brach’s® Purple Rain Tiny Jelly Beans were such a hit in my house the entire bag was gone in one evening. They come in an assortment of berry, blueberry, blue raspberry and grape flavors and let me tell you they are awesome! Cinnamon Lips and Cherry Hearts pretty much say it all right in their name, and are pretty darn good too. You can find these and many more Brach’s® favorites at many local retailers just in time for Valentine's Day giving.

How about a non-traditional gift for the kiddo you love? Ice Hoop and Drop Dots are just that. Both look and feel like nothing you've ever seen before. We've been playing pretty much daily with the Drop Dots balls we received. They may look like scary hard spiked balls, but they are rubbery in texture so they don't hurt to catch. And the spikes are actually a lot of fun to play with too! Ice hoop is a neat twist on a traditional hula-hoop without the tube-like shape. It does take some getting used to, but once you do it's quite addicting!

Ice Hoop is Kess’ best-selling hoop that boasts patented Film and v-Grip Technology to allow for better grip while hooping. Crafted for performance and style, the proprietary shape of each Ice Hoop is designed to enhance tricks and allow for longer-lasting play.

Drop Dots are Kess’ best-selling bounce balls with a spiky texture that gives them an awesome unique feel while increasing performance in both catchability and grip. Available in Junior, Rainbow, Classic and Mini-sizes.

Speaking of non-traditional. How about cookie dough that's actually OKAY to eat raw!? I know right!! I for one was super excited to learn about Edoughble.

Flamin' Chocolate Chip - A touch of heat in every bite! We have taken Little Bird Kitchen's Milk Chocolate Fire Bites and folded them into our famous original cookie dough.

Of course Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without a way to make sure the kiddos are safe at home (with or without a babysitter). With the Vivitar Wireless Video Doorbell you can know who is at your door at all times. The Vivitar Wireless Video Doorbell comes equipped with a two-way intercom (speak and listen) for ultimate home protection. Full HD 1080p resolution provides a crisp and clear image of the surroundings whether day time or night time that you can view from your smart phone or tablet. Now you can enjoy your dinner out and not be constantly worried about your kids at home. You can even receive an alert anytime motion is detected letting you know anytime someone arrives/leaves while you're gone. And with the two-way intercom you can even talk to them before they come in contact with your kiddos. Now that's the kind of peace of mind I want when we are away.
