Chess is a great game that can reinforce time spent one-on-one with your children and build in an outlet for communication to happen. It also helps build those analytical and thinking skills as you watch for cause and effect reactions.

The pieces have beautiful details and make the game come to life. Turn to ChessHouse.com to get starting building a lifetime of memories around this classic game that will never go out of style.

After years of just renting and living in apartments, my husband and I finally bought a new home. We have NO outdoor equipment since we never needed it before, so the Craftsman 16 Gallon Wet/Dry Detachable Blower Vac definitely caught my eye. I'll definitely look at it in store -- before the pine needles and debris from our woods take over our yard!

I would love to get rugs from Lorena Canals. I really like that it's the type of rug you can just toss in the wash. It's easy maintenance and could really change the look of a room and make my daughter's room more comfortable in the winter time!

My husband would love a smoker. He's king of the barbecue around here, and this would be a great compliment to his outdoor kitchen.
