The Face of the watch is Jet Black and it looks stunning. When we went through the process of ordering the watch it was quite an interesting process and the different options that they offer.

When it comes for stocking stuffers for your dad, brother, husband or that special man in your life it can be hard. I know for me I always get stumped to know what to put in their stoc

The three different flavors of jerky are Pepper Craft Pork Jerky, Original Craft Pork Jerky and Maple Craft Pork Jerky. What I thought that was interesting about this jerky that it bacon inspired. Big Fork knows that everyone loves bacon, so they crafted a bacon inspired pork jerky so that you can enjoy the flavor of bacon anytime and anywhere.

My favorite jerky out of three that they offer was their Maple Craft Jerky. I also enjoyed the original jerky. What I noticed about the jerky is that you crave more after the first bite. The jerky was juicy, sweet and savory. What I could not do is put it down. I was sad because I wanted to spread the jerky out and save some for the next day and it was gone quite quickly. I would recommend this jerky in a heartbeat. 

What I also like about Big Fork is that they offer pork sticks. I personally love pork sticks that you can take on the go for a snack. Their pork sticks would also make a great stocking stuffer. The pork sticks come in three different flavors. They come in Green Curry Pork Snack Stick, Original, and Maple Pepper Pork Snack. These beef sticks comes 1 oz stick. What I like about these beef snacks that they are juicy and the best quality pork sticks. I savored every bite that I tried. My favorite out of the pork sticks was the original.

I was very lucky that I was able to review a few of their products from their catalog this year for our holiday gift guide. 

The first item that we were sent was their Holiday Shark. When we opened up the bag to check out our Holiday Shark we fell in love with it immediately. What we first noticed about our Holiday shark was the cute santa hat on the top. The second thing that we noticed was the ornament by the shark mouth which is adorable. I also like the back of the back and some of the front that has poke a dots. This cute little shark is a thermal pouch for kids snacks that is food safe and reusable. The thermal pouch has a zipper top and is available in 4 adorable designs. They don't only offer the shark they offer Elf Suit, Holiday Unicorn or the Snow Monster.

On the back of the caddy it has a mesh exterior pocket that can hold a few extra thing that you need to have stored. It is sturdy and will not come apart which is very nice. They do have the option for this caddy to have monogramming and personalization available upon request. On our caddy we had a monogram of a snow globe on the front which was very beautifully. The snow globe there was a sleigh inside of the snow globe. This is a great caddy to have in your craft room to hold small and important items. I am in love with my caddy and now I do not know what I would do with out it. 

The last product that we review was their Medium Holly Dot Tote and it was amazing just like the rest of the items that we received. I was surprised when I took the tote out and they said it was medium. I thought it would be considered a large tote. This tote was made out of polyester material. It can collapsible for easy storage. If you would to personalize or monogramming on your tote that option is available upon request. The measurements of this tote are approx. 10"H x 18"L x 9"D. What I really like are the red webbing handles. They are sturdy and when you put things in your tote they are strong enough to handle the weight. I like using my tote for on the go and putting things that I need for that day in my tote. For example one day that I went out to a family gathering I put activities for the children in them, gifts, snack and so much more. 

Overall I was very excited that I was able to review Thirty-One-Gifts over the holiday season. I have been interested in this company for quite some time and I finally have been able to partner with them for review and let me tell you that they meet my expectations and beyond.

Are you looking for something special gift this Christmas that is unique? I came across a unique company called MuckyChris. MuckyChris offers a variety of 3d art that your family will absolutely love. His website offers figurines, switch pate covers, tshirts and so much more. 

A little bit about MuckyChris is that he sees 3d printing as a new artistic medium as well as manufacturing platform. Chris was gathering his children's Lego Set Milnes and imagination brought him to the prototype for what has come to known as his for first, but not last, patented product- The Helper for Square, a unique phone and tablet accessory designed to securely support the Square Card Reader.  What happened next would be the ticket into the new world of "pro summer" 3d printing.  He stumbled upon MakerBot a product which is the latest 3d printing technology and that is how he created many of his new creations. 

I was lucky and received one of his creation that I could share with you today. I received a Dessert Yoda Buddha for review. When I received it I though it was unique. It was very light which was nice. The details are amazing and accurate and dead on. My son absolutely loved this Yoda and can not wait to put it in his room. He loves the detail and loves how it looks just like Yoda. This Yoda is available in 2'', 4", 6", 9" and 12" tall. He also can customize with any finishes that are seen in the store.
