Oh my gosh, did you watch Adele’s concert on nbc last night? I’m up way past my bedtime finishing this post (especially since Lawson woke up at 5:30 this morning and refused to nap all day), but it was worth it. I’m sure it’s no coincidence she released her US tour dates for 2016 yesterday. I saw her in concert 5 years ago and would love to see her again next year. 2016 goals!
Okay, on to today’s gift guide. I found so many ideas for kiddos that I split them into two posts (see the other one here). Some of these are on Lawson’s wish list this year and others will be in the future when he gets a little older. My personal rule when it comes to giving gifts to kids is no more than 3 items: a book, article of clothing and a toy. I’ll confess…shopping for books is actually my favorite!
one: tic tac toe is a great game to occupy the kiddos on a road trip or while waiting for dinner. why use the old school paper and pen when you can have a magnetic tic tac toe game?!
two: do you have a little adventurer on your list? I adore these alphabet adventure cards and can’t wait for Lawson to be ready to use them (there’s an adventure number set too).
three: the wee workout baby gym would look great in any modern nursery. choose from car or animal rattles.
four: what little boy doesn’t love fire trucks? this wooden fire engine would be such fun. the fire station is pretty fantastic too.
five: make bath time fun with these monster trucks. these are on Lawson’s wish list this year!
six: playful has 26 unique, modern projects for adults and children to do together. from puppets to pinatas, there’s lots of fun to be had!
seven: the message behind the love your melon beanie will warm your heart this holiday season. started by 2 college kids in minnesota, love your melon aims to gift one hat to every child battling cancer in the us. gifts that do good are a great way to give!
eight: how fun is this silicone coloring placemat? it comes with 4 dry erase markers so you can use it again and again. choose from a handful of cities or animals, a circus and treasure chest.
nine: for the little chef, a kids apron and utensils will make them feel official.
ten: is it wrong if I kinda want to read the adventures of beekle: the unimaginary friend myself? it’s won a ton of awards and gets great reviews.
