I once wrote that Money Can Buy Happiness -- IF You Know How to Spend It. In the post, I emphasized the importance of buying experiences, rather than things.
However, here is one thing that is sure to provide an amazing experience:
The Most Important Possible STEM Toy You Could Possibly Give Your Child... Has Nothing To Do With STEM.
STEM (or STEAM) is all the rage in education these days. For good reason: the future of work relies heavily on understanding science, technology and math. Psychology research shows that early learning experiences have a huge impact on future intelligence and success -- hence the huge boom in STEM toys.
I've previously written about some of my favorite STEAM toys... but there's one item that deserves special attention:
A few years ago, I was hiking to Machu Picchu, and I realized something: "Everyone is a photographer."
It’s true. While I often complain that our electronics take us out of the moment and make us less mindful, they have also enabled us to capture the special (and mundane) moments of our lives better than ever!
Which is why I think this Printerpix Faux-Mink Photo Blanket is a spectacular gift – for significant others, parents, grandparents and bffs. Or pretty much anyone you’re close to.
Valentine's Week is upon us! Love is in the air... but, for some, inspiration may be lacking. Which is why I compiled this list of amazing, experience-enabling gifts for loved ones -- especially ones who appreciate good food and drink.
Not only will you be giving your partner a gift they will enjoy, but you will also be giving them an experience the two of you can share together and remember. So! Without further ado:
Country Mix Sprout Kit with Organic Sprouting Seeds. In under a week, you can turn a tablespoon of seeds into a jar full or fresh sprouts. Great for salads, sandwiches, bagels, pizzas, and pretty much anything. Pair it with a silly note about how, in your relationship, what started as just a few seeds has grown so quickly to fill your life with flavor and meaning.
Kombucha Starter Kit with Organic Loose Leaf Tea and Kombucha Scoby. I've been brewing my own kombucha for about two years, and I love having a never-ending supply. Plus, I can't help but feel a little smug every time the grocery store prices go up another $.50 per bottle. Pair it with a note about how excited you are to have a weekly, low-key activity you can do together. "With you, everything -- even fermenting tea! -- is an adventure."
