The Gift of Doing

(From the Archives)

giftGifts From the Heart

I’m very picky. Simply put, I like what I like. I’m sure most of you can relate. Buying gifts for me is not very fun (just ask my husband!). For every gift that is a winner, there are 10 that just don’t make the grade. So one year, on the eve of my birthday, I decided to throw down a challenge to my family. No buying me anything. Truthfully, if there is really something that I “need”, I’ll get it myself.

But here was the catch. They had to “do” something for me instead. Think about it. It’s the perfect gift. It’s low cost, clutter free (love that!) and from the heart. And I get what I truly “need” – others to take care of things that I either do not have time for or do not know how to do. So here’s what I “received” that first year.

LESLIE LIKES: Surfloor

Surfloor - Mesmerizing Colors that flow under your feet!

I am so excited about Surfloor, my Leslie Likes favorite item for December! These square mats are filled with bright, contrasting colors that swirl and move with every step, hop or dance move. They are perfect for stimulating sensory and perceptual development with their unique feel and visual design. Reviewers have said that walking on them is such a fun and unique feeling – almost like surfing on the ground! The tiles are leak proof, extremely durable, and have an anti-slip back. Surfloor tiles are completely mesmerizing, totally fun and would make the perfect gift for kids of all ages this holiday season!
