Utter Nonsense: Family Edition is one of my favorite games to come along in a while. And trust me, we have basically every board game known to man, including many that are no longer being made. What makes it so fun is its Apples-to-Apples-like simplicity. The key is really what the players bring to the game. The concept is easy to grasp: this is a card game where players combine silly voices with ridiculous phrases for hilarious results. For my full review, click here!

Utter Nonsense: Family Edition is sold exclusively at Target stores and online and retails for $24.99

Christmas Coloring Books

These Christmas coloring books from Design Originals by Fox Chapel Publishing are some of my favorites for the holidays. Santa’s Kitty Helpers  features adorable kitties on each page in festive settings and outfits. Cute Christmas  has both cats and dogs plus snowmen and an unexpected group of cheerful pigs!

What I love best aside from the sheer adorableness, is that each picture is printed only on the front, with a relevant quote on the back. This means if your budding artist uses markers, they won’t bleed through and ruin another page
