Barefoot by the Sea: Cool Tricks Feature and Giveaway

Cool Tricks Feature and Giveaway

Cool Tricks, my sponsor, offers an array of holiday gift options including baby bibs, potholder sets, ornaments, quilts and most importantly, toys!  I'm always searching for unconventional gifts, something special and different. Cool Tricks offers just that and the opportunity to purchase something handmade and one of a kind.  Isn't it more attractive to purchase something from an artisan than a big box store?  Food for thought.  


Here are my holiday picks from this talented artist....

This Retro Red Potholder Set would make a wonderful and affordable hostess gift
Playtime Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich is perfect for your budding chef!
This Plush Birdie would make a lovely grabby toy or pillow for the little one in your life!
This Giant Octopus would be a giant hit under the tree!
What a perfect gift for baby!  This Little Critters Reversible Quilt
  • Up for grabs: Cool Tricks is giving away a set of her potholders!

  2. my favorite holiday tradition is spending time with family at my grandparents house on christmas eve! my grandpa always dresses up as santa clause and all the grandkids go upstairs while my grandparents put all the presents under the tree. Then santa yells ho ho ho and once he is done putting all the presents under the tree and eating his cookies that the kids left out for him, all the kiddos run down stairs and see all the presents and squeal with glee! I used to do this as a child; now I just watch as the great grandchildren partake in the fun. :)gina

  12. Being British, my favorite tradition is eating one little mince pie (with swirly cream) for each of the 12 days of Christmas. Each one you eat brings good luck for the 12 months of the new year. Just a great excuse to eat lots of yummy Christmas food!!

  51. I think the retro red potholders are actually my favorite, it's a close tie with the bright green daisies, but I like the boldness of the pattern!

  52. My fave holiday tradition is making peppernuts (a teeny tiny German cookie that my family makes by the dozen in early December and enjoys with coffee - or milk! The dough needs to refrigerate for a full day, then my Mom would cut up pieces and my dad, brother, and myself roll them into balls and place them on the cookie sheets for baking. It takes a half day, at least, to do, but it's so worth it!
