EcoMom Stocking Stuffer Review and Giveaway...

We have once again teamed up with EcoMom, this time to spotlight some really cool stocking stuffer ideas!About EcoMom:

They have so many ways to keep you in the know on the latest products and information including a community of like-minded moms, an informative blog, EcoMom TV and a relevant newsletter.

A little about the products we reviewed: TreeSmart Pencils are made from 100% recycled newspapers. 12 Mini Colored Pencils per pack
Why We Like This: Every kid and artist alike will want to start doodling and designing with this 12-color pack of 100% recycled newspaper TreeSmart mini pencils.
Bamboo Mini Notebooks:
These books fit in a purse, backpack, car or diaper bag.
Water-proof soft cover
Made with 100% sustainable bamboo pulp paper
Each notebook has 96 ruled pages, last 8 pages are perforated
Assorted vibrant colors - lime, yellow, red and black
Measures 3.25 x 5-Inches
Why We Like This:Writing is as important for your brain as riding a bike is for your body! These fun notebooks are a cool way to motivate yourself to take the time to WRITE. The pages are comparable to any notebook you may be used to, and the bright colored covers mean that your little munchkin may be drawn to them as well (no pun intended...well maybe a little).

Chick Keyring Kit: With a stylish stripey body and that fiery red hair, chick loves to paddle round the pond like he doesn't have a care! Easy to make chick keyring with pre-cut felt pieces so no tricky patterns to cut out. Makes 1 chick keyring, Finished size: Height 4" x Width 3" Recommended for 6 years and up creative childrens toys included in the kit pre-cut chick felt pieces, printed canvas and floss, ready to stitch together to make a cute keyring • pre-cut felt pieces • cotton printed pattern • floss x 2 • stuffing • metal needle • metal keyring

Why We Like This: How many times have you walked by a store and your little one cried out, "I want that" and you bought it because it was cheap, or small or some combination of the two? Well here's your chance to change that pattern. Now your child can have that adorable keychain they have to have, only they have to make it first! DIY teaches them that they have to work for what they want, not in a punitive way, but in a creative, fun and exciting way.


LED Piggy Flashlight: No batteries needed for this ultra bright LED rechargeable flashlight. Kids can manually charge the light by squeezing the piggy. Perfect for sleepovers, flashlight tag, trick-r-treating, night reading and forts! Measures: 6" L x 2.5" W x 2.5" H
Why we like this: Batteries are a bummer. They are expensive, they are toxic and they don't last. We love that you have to work for it with this lil' kitty. Especially great for kids who sometimes forget to turn things off!

What we thought: EcoMom is one of our favorite places to go when we're looking for the highest quality eco-friendly baby and children's products whether for our own family or our friends. The kiddos really enjoyed each item we reviewed. We have yet to make the keychain, but it looks really cute and would be great for 8-12 year olds. A is really into writing and drawing so the notebooks and pencils were a huge hit with her and D is a flashlightaholic, so the LED Piggy was right up his alley. EcoMom is a great place to find fun and creative stocking stuffers without breaking the bank! If you are looking to reduce your family's carbon footprint by using quality green products, we definitely recommend checking out the huge variety of amazing products at EcoMom!
