Let’s start with a gift for your husband, brother, sister, uncle, mom, grandma, anyone! I am absolutely obsessed with Arvo, like every morning when I put my watch on I get a smile on my face. It is a timeless piece that holds up amazingly. It is beautiful and gender neutral, what more could you want? I have many of their watches and my favorite every time is their Awristacrat watch. I love that the bands are easily changed, it has the day of the week on it, and it has the date. It truly is a gift that whomever you give it to will be so excited and obsessed. I will be crossing my fingers for their rose gold watch with the grey band, hello beautiful!
I think you all know that I am head over heels for Made By Mary personalized jewelry. Seriously, I have never loved a jewelry piece as much. Her poppy choker is worn here with her half moon necklace that has d+z hand stamped on it and her bracelet that is handstamped with “the krums”. Her pieces are always what I buy for all my girl gifts. My mom, brothers girlfriend, grandma, best friend, everyone. Every single person is head over heels with her jewelry when they open it. They are stunning timeless pieces that you or whomever you gift it to will wear it every single day with everything they wear. I promise you that Made By Mary will have everyone’s heart, I promise.
Cutest hat, tees, and pants always go to Little Adi + Co. You guys were obsessed when King wore his “Let’s Flamingle” tee and so were we and we continue to be all the time. Soft fabrics, funny sayings, and the cutest beanie have our hearts. I love that Little Adi + Co. makes clothes for King to look like a little hipster, I mean, what more can you love than a hipster toddler?? I also have her “Raising My Tribe” tee shirt and sweatshirt for myself and they are the most comfortable tee & sweatshirt I own. No joke babes. Sooooo good.
Snuggling up in the winter is a must. Any little one will fall in love with this snowflake blanket from Modern Burlap like we have. We have a bunch of their blankets and are in love with them. We keep a swaddle blanket in the car for him to snuggle with when he is tired, a thick throw blanket for him when it is cold outside by his carseat to put over him after we buckle him in, one in his bedroom, a few on our couch and so many other places! We love them, they wash up great, and they are tried and true in our home.
Now let’s chat about littles and their clothes. We love Rags to Raches rompers and they are so comfy for your littles. We have a bunch of them and they have all held up so amazingly with this little stinker man. The patterns are trendy and darling, they fit like a gem (we always size up for it to be baggy) and Rachel is truly a dear friend of mine and as good as they come. Snag your nieces, nephews, or littles a Rags to Raches romper and they will comfy and their parents will be in love.
Toys for your littles, you bet! King loves Shape Mags! They are magnetic and King hasn’t quite figured out how to build a tower or castle yet, but he loves to stack them all together and pull them apart. They are worth every penny and we spend hours playing with them as a family. Oh and looking through the “window” pieces are is his absolute favorite thing to do and we giggle forever at him running around with his eyes looking through the window.
The perfect gift for an expecting mama or a mama of a little baby would be an Owlet Baby Monitor under the tree. We still use ours with King and I have never had so much peace of mind. It monitors your littles heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep with a little sock on their foot. Always remember though, nothing will replace looking at your little and your mama instinct. I love it for every night, but am even more obsessed with it when King is sick. It is the most amazing thing that we own and any expecting mom, or mom of a little baby would absolutely love receiving a little piece of mind with Owlet Baby Monitors for Christmas.
Charmed jewelry is something else that I love. I love wearing pieces that say something about who I am, who I love, and what I stand for. Lisa Leonard has a huge variety of things from ornaments (we love ours that they sent) and rings to necklaces. I love that they are charms (which I swear is hard to find these days). Our necklace has a d charm, z charm, and a k charm for each member of our family. Grab someone you love an ornament every year with the year and their name on it. It will mean so much to them and something that they can look back on and remember forever.
Let’s just chat about Fawn Design for a minute. Fawn Design is truly the only diaper bag I use in my daily life up to this point. I have tried sooo many diaper bags, love them each for different reasons, but my Fawn Design bags will always have my whole heart forever. They hold up amazingly, are beautiful, my husband will carry it, it holds literally my kitchen sink and everything else in my house, it can be used as a backpack or cross body bag, and the list goes on and on. I can not say enough good things about Jenny the owner, her bags, how she stands behind them no matter what and how much I am in love with them. You need this for someone in your life, I use it as a gym bag, my nursing bag when I work, a diaper bag, and a purse. I told you, they have my heart and I will never have enough of them. Her diaper clutches are amazing too to keep your bags organized. I use mine not only for my diaper bag, but for when I am running in somewhere quick and only need diapers! It is sheer perfection.
A little surprise for your little one on the porch every month? What little one wouldn’t love that? We love our Lit Joy Crate boxes. Lit Joy Crate is a book subscription box that you can have delivered to your porch every month. They are darling and have so many fun things in the box to go with the books in the box. This book was bedtime theme and had two books about bedtime, a sippy cup, a bath mit, glow in the dark stars, and a surprise gift for mama too! They are such a fun thing, I have posted about them a few times and we are obsessed. How fun would your littles think it is to receive a surprise every month on their porch!?
Snack containers make the perfect stocking stuffer! We love our Ubbi Tweat snack containers. They have a insert in them that keeps the treats/snacks from spilling, or is removable like King is using it here. I love that they hold a ton of snacks, but aren’t too bulky in my diaper bag. We have a couple of them and leave one in the car full of pretzels and one in the diaper bag for on the go. They are perfect and I guarantee your little one will love finding a tweat container in their stocking filled with snacks!
What mama doesn’t want new makeup? Or any girl really. I recently started using Maskcara Cosmetics and it is absolutely amazing. She has a HAC (Highlight and Contour Kit) that is cream based and I am in love with it. She recently came out with eyeshadows and babes, they are good. I love the compact she has that it is double sided so all your makeup fits in one place. Her brushes are the softest and a total must for every babe that you know mmkay?
My mom and I love to shop and buy clothes. We always end up on Ruby Claire Boutique’s website. This dress is from them and it seriously is the most comfortable dress ever. It is super flattering and the perfect length. I am obsessed with their shoes & their accessories. I love that they have trendy clothes and something for everyone. Their prices are affordable. If you aren’t sure what to snag, grab one of their blanket scarves! They are perfection.
Latter-Day Home is something that you all were obsessed with as much as I am when I posted my Black Friday Guide. You loved their quote frames and now I want to share with you their darling holiday pillows. I love that they are simple yet beautiful. We love this JOY pillow and I love having a little Christmas spirit on my bed. It brings light and happiness to me every time I make my bed. I love getting my mom pillows as gifts for the holidays because it is something that people don’t usually receive and that she loves every time.
Hello cutest toys ever am I right? King and I are both obsessed with Bannor Toys. I am smitten by wooden toys and love to give them as gifts to others because I know that they are going to hold up and love them. They are perfect for so many different ages and Bannor Toys has so many different price ranges. King’s stocking is filled with wooden cars and this darling wooden phone. I love that they engrave his name on each one too so that way it is personalized to him, but also doesn’t get lost as easy!
We hope you are obsessed and have fallen in love with these tried and true products like we have. They make the perfect gifts, are all different price ranges, and everyone is going to absolutely love them!
