This holiday season I’ve found just about the coolest online store ever. And it has everything you need for this upcoming gift giving season. I’ve found something for everyone on my list and much more. What’s this awesome store you ask? Well… it’s Knock Knock!
Knock Knock was founded in 2002 by Jen Bilik with the mission of creating witty, design-driven gift products and books, along with anything else that might strike the Knock Knock fancy.
Their products aspire to bring humor, function, organization, and aesthetics to everyday life. And they believe that people are intelligent enough to appreciate wit, wordplay, and conceptual thought. Whether Knock Knock is producing sticky notes or a volume of thoroughly researched nonfiction, they strive not to dumb down as they create.
I was lucky enough to check out two of their products and I have to say… I’ll be back for more!
Meet Shark-O the Shark. He’s a member of the Clump-O-Lump family and is a pretty awesome guy. Not only is he super plush and cuddly, he can also come apart and be dissected with the pull of a zipper! And he’s quickly become a favorite amongst my kids.
Clump-O-Lumps are the perfect gifts for your kids this year. Not only are they a great way to use our imagination, you can also combine different Clump-O-Lumps to create new animals. What do you get when you cross a shark and a squid? A squark!
There are 6 members of the Clump-O-Lump family:
- Tig-O the Tiger
- Frog-O the Frog
- Shark-O the Shark
- Bee-O the Bee
- Squid-O the Squid
- Bird-O the Bird
And that’s not all! For a limited time you can choose from the Clump-O-Lumped bunch and receive a mixed up buddy of your own!
Knock-Knock not only sells these loveable Clump-O-Lumps, they alsomake some pretty awesome things. SO many awesome things that I had a hard time deciding what I really needed to try out. But as soon as I saw it I knew I needed it… this Personal Library Kit is not only a throwback to checking out books before the time of computers but also makes borrowing books a lot more fun!
With a surplus of books in my home it’s hard to keep track of which ones I lend out and which ones I’ve just put away for another time. So by utilizing this kit I can make sure I have documentation of which books are out and when they need to come back to me.
I’ve also had thoughts of using this kit as a great alternative to gift tags this year. How cute would these be on a package wrapped in brown paper? Simple and festive!
This Personal Library Kit comes with the following:
- Book Information Card
- Card Envelope
- Date Stamp
- Ink Pad
You simply attach the envelope onto the book you wish to loan out, fill out a book information card (with the information about the book and the person borrowing the book) and stamp it with the date. You stamp the card envelope in the book with the return date so that the borrower knows when they should bring it back to you.
Keep the card in a Rolodex (or a safe place) until the book is returned. Then add it back to the envelope and wait for the next person to borrow it. What a great way to keep track of where your books have traveled!
