Great Gift Ideas WITH Savings at Groupon

Groupon Goods

This is a sponsored post – all opinions expressed here are my own.

With summer winding down, I don’t know about you, but we have a lot of birthday’s coming up, and then the holidays, things seem to get way more hectic and expensive after summer break is over. My oldest daughter had a big birthday coming up in September, she’ll be turning 13!!! Where did the time go?!?! Teens are HARD to buy for, they stick their nose up at most things, or get overly excited at the dumbest things, gifts are HARD to find for a teen!

Sometimes though, it’s not the teens that are the hardest to find a gift for, take for instance my father. His birthday just recently passed and I had no idea what to get him, so where did I go? I decided to try out Groupon and see what they had available, which was perfect! With Groupon Goods I could find an experience/activity for him, or a dinner for him and mom to go out to, it was the perfect place to find a gift for him, easy, and quick, and didn’t cost me an arm and a leg.


I’m thinking Groupon might be the best bet to find my daughter a gift too. The prices are great and I can get her anything from headphones to video games, horseback riding lessons to a waterpark weekend. I think she’d really enjoy getting something a little different this year and a weekend away might be the most fun for her. Maybe that, and a video game, because lord knows if she doesn’t get one she might turn into the demon spawn of 13 year olds!

Groupon Goods is my go to place for gifts for others as well as just shopping for myself, saving money with Groupon is on the top of my shopping list! You can follow Groupon on Facebook and Twitter as well to find some great deals!

Make-A-Wish / ESPN Team Up For 10th Anniversary of the “My Wish” Series

PHOENIX (July 18, 2016) – Ten years and more than 50 wishes later, Make-A-Wish and ESPN celebrate the 10th anniversary of the My Wish series on SportsCenter. The series, which started in 2006, showcases the life-changing interactions that take place when athletes grant the one true wish for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

From international icons and gold medalists to hall of famers and MVPs, the series has documented wish kids meeting some of the most distinguished athletes of all time. This summer will be no different as new, inspirational stories will be shown on SportsCenter throughout the week of July 17. In addition, to commemorate the 10th anniversary, ESPN will launch a special website,, for an in depth look at the impact the series – and the wishes – have had on the athletes, wish families and communities involved throughout the last decade.

The series kicked off on Sunday, July 17, with a special piece developed specifically for the 10th anniversary. Then, each night from July 18-21, SportsCenter will reveal a different, life-changing wish experience, culminating in a compilation feature on July 22. Athletes featured in this year’s series include: NBA champion and two-time league MVP Steph Curry, three-time NFL defensive player of the year JJ Watt, the 2015 World Cup champion U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team and 2015 National League MVP and three-time MLB All-Star Bryce Harper.

As he has in every prior year, Emmy-award winning reporter Chris Connelly will once again lend his incredible knack for storytelling to the series as the correspondent.

“Every year, we witness how sick kids internalize the toughness and determination that professional athletes display on a nightly basis,” said Connelly. “When wish kids meet their favorite athletes and teams, they are empowered to stay strong and positive no matter what health obstacles come their way.”

“The ‘My Wish’ series gives the public a glimpse into the life-altering wish experiences that take place on average every 35 minutes somewhere in the country,” said David Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “We know these wishes forever change the wish kids and families involved, and they would not be possible without the generosity of donors and supporters like ESPN.”

Make-A-Wish extends its thanks to Disney and ESPN for their support of the “My Wish” series, and for their help in creating these incredible wish experiences. Beyond assisting with this year’s series, Disney – which owns ESPN – has been a steadfast friend of Make-A-Wish for 36 years and has helped the organization grant more than 100,000 Disney-related wishes, including the first official wish in 1980.
