When it comes to Christmas gifts for the little people, we try to keep it relatively simple, sticking to a few things they’ll wear, read, want, and need. Here are a few of the things that made the cut!
1 // Lovey by Iviebaby This shop has the most gorgeous fabrics for all the baby things! All loveys are 20% off through the end of today AND shipping is free! Izzy hasn’t settled on any one special animal or blanket yet, so I’m kiiiiiinda hoping this is it 🙂
2 // Nintendo Switch Bundle Landon has had a Switch on his Christmas list for two years running (and so has Mike) so we shopped around for Black Friday deals and grabbed this one online! It’s way more than we would spend on a single present (or kid in general), so it’s going to be a family present. This particular bundle is no longer available, BUT almost all of the major retailers are running some kind of deal this weekend.
3 // Minecraft and Captain America Water Bottles Love these! Landon likes taking a water bottle to school and rehearsal, and his current one is dying a slow death. Of course, whatever Landon has, Alex has to have, too, and he is alllllllll about the superheroes this year.
4 // Cat Pillow by Pillowfort These “pillows” are actually more like large handmade dolls in the style of Cuddle and Kind, but at an affordable price point. I bought the ballerina for Izzy last year, and grabbed this one and the mermaid when Target had them on sale a few weeks ago!
5 // Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild Landon and his friends are obsessed with this series, and I’m one hundred percent here for it because he is normally a bit of a reluctant reader. This is the sixth book in the series, and it comes out on Christmas Eve! If you pre-order it and choose two-day shipping, Amazon will deliver it juuuuuust in the knick of time to throw it under the Christmas tree.
6 // Magnatiles House Set We are in love with Magnatiles! We bought a set for Alex last Christmas, and the boys are always playing with them. They are definitely pricey- and there are tons of less expensive magnetic building toys- but the quality can’t be beat. I don’t mind investing in toys like these because I know they will be played with for a long time! We also ordered this expansion set, and I know it will be a big hit.
7 // Little Feminist Board Books These are the perfect size for little hands, and full of strong women! Never too early, right? After all, she is going to run the world someday 🙂
8 // LeapFrog LeapStart 3D Alex has been the hardest kiddo to buy for this year, especially when it comes to “something they’ll read” because we have so many books already. The LeapStart has a ton of great reviews, and it looks like something he can do on his own that will get him excited about reading. Fingers crossed!
