The parent tested, parent approved holiday gift lift list has finally been revealed, with just three weeks to until Christmas. 

Every year, products are tested and reviewed by thousands of parents around the country. 

And this year, the list introduces unique gifts for the whole family, including for parents who have safety top of mind. 

If you’re the parent that spends a lot of time worrying about high-risk food allergies, then Nima allergy tester is for you. 

The portable sensor can do on the spot testing for gluten or peanuts. You simply put the device into a morsel of food, place it into the test capsule and within minutes, you know if that food contains one of the allergens. 

"Nima has created a system to empower you to know what is in your food and make safer choices," said Sharon Vinderine of Parent Tested Parent Approved. 

From a safer lifestyle to a more memorable one, the Sennheiser memory mic is also topping the list of best gifts. 

When you are recording someone with your phone, you attach a cordless device to the person. It's very lightweight and attaches magnetically. 

It doesn’t matter how far your child is from you; you’ll get top-notch sound quality, perfect for recording your child’s voice in a concert, recital or school play. 

The smartphone mic and the allergen sensor each retails for about $199. 

But if you’re in the mood to just shop gifts for kids, the Mumablue personalized children’s book is melting hearts across the country. 

You can build the character to look just like the child you're gifting it to, choosing the hair, skin and eye color. This fun read starts at just $40. 

And if you're looking to shop with a conscience this year, then these cuddle and kind hand-crafted artisan dolls are for you. 

Made in Peru, each comes with its own, unique personalized story, and each purchase helps someone who needs it. 

Every doll, when sold, means ten meals are donated to children in need around the world. The company has donated over 5 million meals to date. With varying sizes, the doll starts at $50.  

And PTPA wants to help parents out this year, so if you go to, you’ll find some exclusive discount codes. 

For example, with a special code, you can get free shipping on the handcrafted dolls plus ten percent off those personalized books.
