Avid traveler, outdoor adventurer, budding YouTube (or Tik Tok) star, tech toy fanatic; chances are someone on your holiday gift list wants a drone. If you’ve researched drones in the past, you might have been put off by the high prices, or had safety concerns, or found them too complicated.

This year, there’s a new ultralight, portable and affordable option: the Mavic Mini Drone from DJI and at $399 it might just be the hottest tech toy gift of the season!

Mavic Mini is almost as light as the average smartphone. This makes it super portable and places it in the low and safe weight class of drones. Best Buy has sponsored this gift guide to let you know it’s available for pre-order now.

The DJI Mavic Mini is recommended for ages 16 and up, making it a super cool gift idea for just about any creative, active and tech-loving teenager or adult. It’s a fun family gift with simplified recording and editing features. It even lets you generated short video and share it instantly with friends on social media.

The DJIFly app can help you find popular, scenic shooting locations near you. And, because it’s so lightweight, it can stay in the air longer than similar consumer FlyCams on the market. Enjoy up to 30 minutes of flight time with a fully-charged battery. Did I mention that it’s foldable?

It’s got so many cool features and photos don’t really do it justice, so watch this quick video to see it in action and learn more.

Christmas in July: Plan Your Holiday Photo Cards Now

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Every year I say I’m going to plan ahead and NOT wait til the last minute to order my winter holiday cards, but things come up…I get busy and forget. I’m sure you can relate!

This year, our newest blog sponsor, Basic Invite, is here to help us all do better, with a Christmas in July reminder: Summer is a great time to plan out and capture your family and pet photos for your Christmas cards and holiday cards.

They are also offering a 30% OFF discount to our readers so read on to learn more!

You might be thinking. “How can I do holiday photos when all my Christmas decorations are packed away?!?”

It’s easier than you think. All you need is a few simple props, like some Santa hats and mini trees from Michaels or the Dollar Store. Walgreens still has Red Noses for sale at many locations (check by the registers).

Any string of fairy lights will help set the scene, or take the photos you love and add some sparkly touches with filters in your favorite photo app or software.

Look around for items you already have that might work. This is a GREAT excuse to get some matching pajamas for your family and pets!

Your Christmas cards don’t even have to have a holiday theme. Summertime is beach, pool and vacation time, so remember to take a few nice shots with the family (and pets, of course) so that you can share your memories with friends and family when you send out your cards this winter. Any great family photos YOU love will make the perfect images for your cards.

There are tons of themes and templates to choose from, so it’s almost a no-brainer once you have your favorite digital photos picked out!

Basic Invite is one of the few card websites with almost unlimited color options and instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what really sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.

And if you have a business, or are in charge of ordering business Christmas cards this year, now is the time to get it done. You can get really creative with cards that fit the personality and tone of your business!

Whether you are ordering cards and invites for business or family, you want to make sure your cards look their very best, right?

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you the ability to order a printed custom sample of your actual card or invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.

You can also choose from over 40 different envelope colors. That will really help your cards stand out!

And to make life really easy, use their address capturing service letting you share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request friends and family’s addresses which can be stored and used for recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

Hopefully all this has motivated you to get started on Christmas and holiday cards, invites and more, now rather than waiting til the last minute.

To take a closer look at all the design options, templates and pricing, visit the Basic Invite website, and use promo code below for 30% OFF any order!

If you’ve been putting off shopping or just run out of ideas for your hubby, dad or grandpa for Father’s Day, we’ve got some last-minute gift ideas that might save the day! Whatever your budget, here are a few creative, last-minute Father’s Day gifts you can still get in time if you act quickly.

Car Wash Gift Card ($15-$250)

Stop by your local car wash today or tomorrow and grab a prepaid car wash for your favorite dad. If he’s anything like Woof Woof Papa, it’s been a while, and he’ll really appreciate it. If your budget permits, you can get an unlimited wash plan for a month, interior cleaning, or a premium car detailing package, but you can also just buy a simple car wash. If you aren’t sure where to go, check out the reviews on yelp.com to find the best place near your dad.

Audible Gift Subscription ($45-$150)

If your guy or dad loves podcasts and audiobooks, get him a 3-, 6-, or 12-month gift subscription to Audible. Not only will he get to choose his own audiobooks, but the membership also includes lots of extras and original content. Works with any device, phone, table or computer and it’s a great last-minute gift since you can order anytime and get it delivered instantly!

Healthy Snack Pack for Dad ($35 as shown)

A great way to treat a loved one is with a box of healthy snacks he can keep at work, home and in his car. Amazon has several gift box ideas for Dad that can be delivered the next day. This one is $35 for 40 items, and includes Free Prime One Day Shipping. If you run out of time for one day delivery, hit Target.com where you can order online and then pick up in-store within a couple hours. Many locations even have parking lot pick up where they bring your order out to you!

Beer, Wine, Liquor or Grocery Delivery ($10 OFF with our link)

Surprise your favorite dad or grandad with cocktail or meal supplies delivered straight to his door! You order online through Instacart choosing from several local grocery and liquor stores, and a local shopper fills your order and delivers it for you. This is great if you live out of town, just make sure to put in the address of the recipient, not yours. Also be sure someone 21+ is going to be home to receive the order if you send beer, wine or spirits. Use this link to get $10 OFF your first Instacart order. And don’t forget to tip your shopper in the app when you order.

Gift Subscription to BarkBox ($35-$249)

If your favorite dad is also a dog dad, we recommend BarkBox. It’s a monthly gift box of dog goodies, treats, toys and surprises. You can order an e-card gift subscription for 1-12 months of BarkBox or start a subscription for them. If you start a subscription for them you can use BarkBox coupon code: WOOFWOOFMAMA to get a free month added to any plan.
