Holiday Gift Guide | For the Kiddos

Have you started holiday shopping? Some years I wait until after Thanksgiving is done. But something about this year (maybe the early onset of winter) has me in the Christmas shopping mood! I do nearly all my shopping online. It’s easy for me to make lists for all my family and then just sit a the computer (and even my phone ) and click away, having the gifts show up at my doorstep just days later. It’s really more stress-free for me. That way I can spend more of my time at home with my family enjoying our Christmas traditions. Amazon is my go-to place to shop. With Amazon prime I also get free shipping and two-day delivery. Score!

Here are some gift ideas for the kiddos (click on images for more information) :

  1.  Simplicity Soft Plush Indoor Home Slippers Cartoon Cosplay Paw Claw Shoes
  2. Galt Toys Inc Jewelry Craft
  3. Thames & Kosmos Crystal Growing
  4. Disney Kids’ FZN3598 Frozen Anna and Elsa Digital Watch with Purple Snowflake
  5. BandSchylling – Joke Box
  6. Hog Wild Toys Penguin Popper
  7. Enchantmints Butterfly Princess Music Box
  8. Kendama Fade-Out Wooden Ball Catch Game – Colors Vary
  9. Schylling Pocket Fashion Designer
  10. Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter with Gyro- Red

Happy Shopping!

And from Zooey’s dance class. It was family night…meaning the parents were able to go into the room (with cameras) and watch class! My Zooey is such a ham! It’s hard to find a moment when she is serious and not performing.

Papa and Grandma snuck into watch too!IMG_9878IMG_9810

That’s all I got! Happy Friday!!
