5 Reasons This Is The Coolest Nightlight Ever

Even if the kids don’t need a night light to sleep – this is one of those things that you just have to get anyhow because it is so creative and fun! I was so excited to have the opportunity to review a 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Light and share my honest opinion with you all – because honestly, I knew my kids would love this! I created this list of the 5 (err, 6) things that make it the coolest light for a kid’s room, den, play area, etc!

Room Decor/Night Lights your kids will love!

Whether you are looking for a last minute (or belated) holiday gift, searching for awesome things to use your gift cards on, or planning for upcoming birthday party gifts – this is a can’t pass product. Bringing your child’s favorite characters into their rooms without cluttering the toybox! I know my little ones like having a night light – and these are as cool as they come!

A Gift as Grand as They Are

It’s hard to be away from family during the holidays. Grandma and Grandpa are back in snowy New York, and we’re 3,000 miles away in Arizona desert. Deciding what to do for Grandma and Grandpa is tough. Of course, we will call them and enjoy FaceTime Christmas morning, but we really wanted to mail a special gift too – something they would not expect and would be surprised to receive. Something meaningful, personalized and useful. As soon as I learned about Grandbox, I knew it was the answer.
