We love our packing cubes and can’t imagine packing without them.  We use one cube per family member most of the time.  It makes finding things at the hotel and getting packed in the morning a breeze!

Sterling Silver Compass and  “Enjoy The Journey” necklace


Jen put this on the list because she is hoping that it ends up under our Christmas tree.

The Switch is the most portable gaming system out there.  You can connect to a TV when you have one, or disconnect from the dock and play in handheld mode, or you can even play head to head on the portable screen while on the go.
