Gift giving, something that can be so fun or so stressful right? Throughout the year, I always have a note in my phone where I can put down my favorite things that I love or that my kids love so when it comes to gift giving I can turn to those and know that I have a tried and true gift that I can give.
I am so excited to share with you some of my families all time favorite things that we are giving as gifts this year to friends and family!
Shape Mags are a STAPLE in our home and I love them. King’s creativity can run wild with them and Lettie can even play with them too. King has built cribs for his stuffed animals, castles, jail for his bad guy action figures, and so much more with them. They never get old to play with because the options to do things with them go as far as your kids creativity can go. We actually have purchased 2 big sets because King wanted to build bigger and better things and would run out of them. We have had Shape Mags for over two years and they have held up amazing. This hands down is our favorite gift to give friends!
I think we all have that friend that has little kids in car seats but loves to get her nails done. Getting a kid out of a car seat with nails on can be a BEAST right? Or some car seats are just hard to push that silly little red button to let your little one out. This is where this genius invention comes in. The car seat key is something that you can slide over the red button area on the car seat, push together and it will undo the car seat for you without having to use your fingers! It is AMAZING. I keep one on my key chain even though my nails aren’t very long because it just makes it so much easier to get Lettie out!
Shopbop has the cutest kids gifts. They have everything from the cutest little stuffed animals all the way to different puzzles and darling decor for your littles rooms. I snag so many of my kids toys there because I know that they will hold up and the quality is amazing!
I have a bag, my favorite bag that I leave in the mudroom that I can always throw whatever I need that day in as I run out the door in addition to my diaper bag. I think we all know “the bag” that I’m talking about right? Well, this gold shimmer bag from Talking Out of Turn has replaced my old bag that was falling apart and to be honest I love it more. It is light weight so it can be folded up or rolled up to not take up very much room, but it also fits A TON OF STUFF in it. All the neighbor gifts you need to run around? Yep, throw them in the bag. Snacks for preschool class? Yep the perfect bag for that too and so much more.
I feel like we all have those people that are hard to shop for right? I have a few of them on my list. Shopbop is where I can always find them things that I know they won’t have because their gifts are so unique. They have everything from darling printed garden tools to home decor and hair accessories!
Whenever we go on an adventure I want a bag that can serve as a diaper bag but also get washed when it gets mud splashed on it or dust. I want it to be able to hold all of Lettie’s diapers plus first aid stuff and snacks + water for the entire family. This is seriously the perfect bag for the adventurous family. The stroller organizer + purse I think is my all time favorite. I keep it stocked in the back of my car with my stroller always then if we adventure and I just need the necessities or there is an emergency situation with my littles (like running out of diapers or snacks) we all know we can grab the bag in the back that is stocked with diapers, undies, snacks, band aids, water, etc. The best part about these bags is that they are MACHINE WASHABLE which makes them the best bags in the world. If you know someone who loves to adventure, trust me and get them one of these bags for Christmas!
I hope that us sharing our favorite things will help you to find something for yourself or friends/family that you need a gift for this holiday season. Trust me, these are tried and true favorites in our house!
