I just enjoyed a glorious two weeks with my little munchkin niece! She came to visit with my sister for Dad’s 60th and our sister’s 21st birthdays. We had a great time together and my niece is growing up so fast. Some of the highlights of the trip include teaching her new words (or at least in consistent contexts) and funny things. She has the best sense of humor for a little kid (she’s not even 18 months yet).

Anyway, next on my “Auntie Approved” list is the Crane Adorable Elephant Humidifier. When my family came to visit, I was sick (of course). Sadly, I must have passed the germs on to my niece because she was all stuffed up and full of snot within a few days. We bought a humidifier and this is the one we got.

Isn’t this so cute? The cool steam comes out of the elephant’s trunk! It was quiet, worked well and helped all of us to sleep better at night.

We bought from Target, but this is available at multiple retailers.

Here’s a list of some things I personally love and think you might will, too! I’m hoping to post from time-to-time in categories, whether it’s music, food, local spots, products, gadgets, etc.

Since I spend most of my day at the office (who doesn’t?!), today’s list is comprised of some of my favorite office and/or work-related items. What are your go-to favorites?

  1. Page-Up Document Holders: These things are awesome! They hold a piece or two of paper at just the right angle so you can read and type simultaneously, or do what I do and leave an important list propped up. It’s way better than getting piled under every other piece of paper.
  2. BackJoy: By no means am I a doctor, chiropractor or other medically intelligent person, but with my share of unsolved back problems, this little support works pretty well. I started having horrible back pain in high school and college, and unfortunately still do (and sitting for most of the day doesn’t help). I bought my BackJoy from Bed Bath & Beyond and use it semi-regularly.
  3. OXO Good Grips Pocket Stapler: Not sure if the inventor of the stapler ever won any awards, but I love this mini must-have. My desk gets cluttered with enough other things and I like having a stapler within reach. Only downside is due to its size, it doesn’t hold nearly as many staples as a traditional stapler.
  4. Energizer Premium USB Wall Charger: Let’s face it, anyone who owns an iPhone knows the battery won’t last through the day (OK, maybe if you don’t touch it at all while at work). I like this charger because its cord is a decent length and the actual unit can be used to charge any other USB device. Also, the cord wraps around the hub of this charger, making it quick and easy to transport or throw in a work bag.
  5. Royal Apothic Holland Park Hand Creme: I love hand creams, especially if they smell good and aren’t greasy. I found this one at Anthropologie and I hope it never gets discontinued! I love the scent and it keeps my hands moisturized without being too heavy or oily. It is a bit pricey but I figure it’s worth it if I use it multiple times every day.

SkipHop: Mate stay-put plate + tray

First up as an Auntie Approved product is this really cute modern plate, fork, spoon and placemat set from SkipHop! My niece was given one of these for her first birthday and it’s easy to use and clean. It’s cute mod style is awesome too!

It’s available online and at many retailers including Pottery Barn Kids, Target and Babies R Us.
