This year I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite tools and gadgets that I either use myself or are just are too clever not to mention!
So, if you have some last minute shopping to do and you are looking for just the right gift for that special someone, any of these would be perfect under the tree, in a stocking or wrapped for a special holiday celebration. Happy Holidays!

This type of liquid timer probably saved many wars from breaking out when my kids were growing up. With four kids these timers had one watching it for when their turn was up, the next making sure their turn would be next and a third simply entertained by the flow of the gel. More recently, I have to say that the variety of liquid timers are one of the favorite “tools” of my clients young and old alike. Liquid timers come in a variety of shapes and “times” and are great to use for taking turns, keeping time of shorter tasks such as how long to brush your teeth, preventing shower hours because they are waterproof and can be watched even when wet, helping young ones get a “sense of time” and occupying someone while they wait until it’s time to go.
This is one of my new favorites! Perhaps I never outgrew my love for the texture of sand, but this kinetic sand that sticks together gets my vote. (Picture is the “Executive Sandbox by Brookstone.) It’s as if that round, solid walnut box that keeps the Sand neat gives me all the permission I need to open it up for desktop stress relief or just for fun! You’re never too old to play in the sand.
