This holiday season, share the gift of learning a new language together. My family is hoping to move to Mexico next summer for one year. But we don’t speak Spanish. Thank goodness for Rosetta Stone!
Rosetta Stone has been teaching people to speak languages for over 25 years. Now, it’s available via any smart device, from anywhere in the world. With Rosetta Stone, you learn intuitively through interactive games and their online learning community. Their immersion method of instruction introduces language in a way that stimulates your brain’s natural language learning ability. There are even live tutors available for extra help.
A Rosetta Stone subscription includes full access to the Rosetta Stone course, a phrasebook, and audio companion. Rosetta Stone offers instruction in over 20 languages. Give the Gift of Language: Rosetta Stone starting at $20/month!
Chamilia Travel Charms
Chamilia by Swarovski creates charms and jewelry using only the finest, heirloom-quality metals (solid .925 sterling silver and 14K gold) and are accented with dazzling Swarovski Crystals and Zirconia. Their darling travel-themed charms will please any Travel Mama on your holiday list. Choose from destination-specific charms like a mini Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, or Canadian flag. Meanwhile ocean lovers will beads shaped like a cruise ship, seashell, palm tree oasis, or beach sandal. My favorite, though, is the Around the World Globe charm. In total, there are 60 travel-themed charms to choose from! Add one or more these to a Chamilia charm bracelet to create a piece of jewelry that will spark admiration and travel conversations.
