Favorite: Posh Coloring Books
Yes, these are coloring books, but if you are a creative mind or someone who finds themselves stressed a lot, might I suggest these for therapy? The designs inside promote calming and focusing effects on your brain, and the end results are stunning pictures!

My new favorite this month is the awesome B&H Kids Augmented Reality Bible ... my little ones LOVE it. It brings the Bible to life, using technology that engages them in a fun, cool way.
Diane Paddison, Founder
My husband, Chris, was an early adopter about 10 years ago and I thought these shoes were really ugly. Now I am sold on Keens. The shoes are comfortable, versatile, and protective for active, athletic people.
