gifts worth giving || babies, kids, and the littlest of elves

Thursday, December 3, 2015

I'm back with installment #2 of my annual Gifts Worth Giving series. Did you miss the first round?
Check out my All Under $25 Guide here
Let's face it... Christmas is for the kids, at least that's the motto for my grandparents and whatever the minis say goes. Now you see why I was so headstrong, even as a child. 
I always search high and low trying to find presents for the girls, our nieces and nephews, and all the other little elves we hold near and dear to our hearts so this one is for all you gift givers that are wanting to avoid visiting the toy shop at all costs... enjoy! 

For the tee tiny ones, you can never go wrong with a Wood Shape Sorter, drool worthy {and dishwasher safe] Chewbeads Necklace, touch time fun Pony Tails Book, or an oh so soft Robot Hand Knit Doll to keep them safe at night. 
Got a little tinkerer on your hands? Keep them occupied with this colorful Rainbow Stacker, classic and timeless Uncle Goose Wooden Blocks, this indoor fort AKA Multi Dot Tee Pee, and this Fishing Bath Toy, which will have them begging for bathtime. 
If you're wanting to play it safe but find them something even adults will enjoy, gift them these KicKee Pants Pajamas because you'll want some in your own size, too. Keep them occupied on trips with this clever Boogie Board Writer, and classic BabyLit books like this Alice in Wonderland Board Book will be a treasured keepsake! And from Griffin Technology, check out their Crayola Light Marker which helps you color and create with light on your iPad [this has been a big hit at our house the past few days and the girls are LOVING their masterpieces of art, too]. 
Other favorites include Babiators Sunglasses, which are a steal at $20, and are replaceable if lost or damaged... SCORE as well as this Melissa and Doug Magnetic Doll Set, which my girls love, and there are two included so it's a perfect gift for siblings learning to share. Finally, if you're wanting to invest in a future in music, you can always spoil them rotten with this Acoustic Guitar... just make sure you get some earplugs for the adults, too. Oh did you say earphones?? What about these Crayola MyPhones, which come ready to decorate with stickers and markers AND are colume limiting so you know you're not damaging their ears! 
And last but certainly not least, is a comfy Gray Stripe Bean Bag so that after you're done playing with all these amazing toys, you might be able to take a rest. 

P.S. I'll be back soon to show you what my girls are requesting from the Holly Jolly man himself, too!
