Holiday Gift Guide - For Anyone: @Tokidoki x Marvel Frenzies

Tokidoki X Marvel Frenzies The Punisher and Red Skull Holiday Gift Guide 2011 Student Saving Bucks
Holiday Gift Guide - This is a gift great for ANYONE, especially those Tokidoki and Marvel fans! I am a fan of both, and love Tokidoki's x Marvel collaboration, in which they have made clothing, hoodies, hats, and the frenzies. Tokidoki x Marvel Frenzies are adorable 1 1/2" figurines that have a plethora of uses. They can be used as a cell phone charm, hooked on your keyring, used as a zipper pull, hooked on bags, etc.

We received two Tokidoki x Marvel Frenzies boxes. I say boxes because they are blind-boxed, meaning they all come in an identical box and you won't know which of the 20 different marvel frenzies will be waiting for you inside. Maximum surprise! Inside ours were Mr. Punisher and Red Skull (pictured above). We were hoping for the adorable Hulk but are happy with what was inside.

Aside from the actual frenzies are the box. I adore the box, it is decorated with Spider-Man, The Hulk, The Punisher, Wolverine and Captain America, along with other marvel heros and villains on the sides. The back of the box has a cute mini comic. The box alone is a little collectible for any Tokidoki and Marvel fan. 

The Tokidoki x Marvel Frenzies retail for about $5.99 on ThinkGeek.com. There are 20 figurines in total, which include Marvel heroes and villains and are made of non-phthalate PVC. The collectible frenzies are adorable and can be hooked on to almost everything! They are also fun to show off! They will make a great gift idea for just about anyone, and will make an even better stocking stuffer, as they are inexpensive.

Holiday Gift Guide - For The Kids: IKEA Soft Toys + Donation

Ikea Soft Toys Gift Guide Gift For Kids Donation To Save The Children and UNICEF 
We're starting off the Holiday Gift Guide @ Student Saving Bucks with a Gift Idea for the kids! Every kid likes plushies, but these come with a little more satisfaction! IKEA's Soft Toys are adorable, but they also help children in other countries. To review, we received the TORVA Collection of Soft Toys; It includes the Brocolli, Strawberry and Carrot. This collection was designed to help kids learn how to grow veggies and introduce them to environmental thinking with a "Vegetable Patch" theme Children's Book. I absolutely love them, as do my little brother and sister. We learned that the carrot is actually a squeaky toy, which kids just love to squeeze for hours from what it seemed. 

IKEA's Soft Toy Campaign will be running from November 1 - December 24th, 2011. It is an annual event, in which IKEA donates 1 Euro ($1.35 USD) to the IKEA Soft Toys for Education Campaign for each Soft Toy purchased. Each Euro is split and donated to UNICEF and Save The Children for projects giving children in Asian, Eastern Europe and Africa access to a quality education. IKEA's Soft Toy Campaign has donated 47.5 million to UNICEF and Save The Children since 2003. The campaign has helped about 8 million kids in 40 countries get a quality education.

This year, make a difference in a child's life while helping put a smile on your own. These adorable IKEA Soft Toys (which also include stuffed animals, finger puppets and books) retail from $0.49 - $19.99 and are available online or at your local IKEA store. A huge thanks to IKEA for providing us with our adorable Soft Toys and donating to children's education. I believe education is the first step to change.

Don't You Wish Your Grandpa Was Hot Like Me? Big Lots Finds!

Big Lots Finds Sock Monkey Huge
I fund some great little finds at Big Lots. My favorite were these HUGE 4ft. sock monkeys named MAXX. They are priced at $25 and let my parents know I WANT HIM for Christmas. Since we are better off than we were last year, I might get a present for Christmas this year. Last year, I didn't get anything, unfortunately. I love monkeys, real, stuffed and toy. I would even be nice enough to let him sleep on my comfy queen-size bed, lol. 

While shopping yesterday I ended up at Big Lots. I love this store, always have, but found something a bit weird this time around. In the Christmas section I came across a "grandpa doll" that sang when you pressed his hand. I thought it would be a cute gift for my grandfather, which is currently stuck in an out-patient convalescent home after his surgery. I was actually quite grossed out at the lyrics of his song, but couldn't help to laugh. "Don't you wish your grandpa was hot like me? Don't you wish your grandpa was a freak like me? Well, don't cha". Would you buy this for your grandpa? Would he like it? lol. You can see the video above that I took (turn up your volume!).
