The Timeless Holiday Gift Guide for Kids

Ah that time of year again! Where you’re scoping out all the latest and greatest items to buy your little loved ones

I used to fall victim to all-things-toys when I was a new mom. I thought for sure they’d love it all. I mean how could they not?! They love it when we are at the store…I couldn’t have been more wrong. Those toys were usually always donated after some short time.

Now don’t get me wrong..we have some goodies that have stuck around and made it through each kid. But their favorite things are usually items they can create & pretend with. So now I focus more on that than the coolest new robotic action figure…

Now there are a lot of things we already have ( just like I’m sure you have a lot already too!).. So I’ll share my ideas of some of the classic, best things to buy that will stick around during those playtimes for years to come. They will make great additions to things you may already own or they make great toys that you can add to.

Holiday Gift Guide for Kids

1. Lincoln Logs $20-$50

These will stick around for years! I loved playing with these and our kids love making new homes for some of their small figurines. This bucket is at the top of their Christmas list this year. Include some cute animals & their favorite small action figures to go along with it! You can get smaller versions of this too.

LINCOLN LOGS – 100th Anniversary Tin – 111 All-Wood Pieces – Ages 3+ Construction

2. LEGO Sets $5-$100

This will keep kids entertained for quite some time and always can add their favorite character sets to it as they grow. Classic! We still love the LEGO Duplo Sets too especially for our younger littles. They play with these almost every day and get so creative. It is relaxing item for children too and really keeps them engaged. Great toys!!

I recommend starting with a box set and building baseplate like this oneLEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box& Set of 9 Lego Compatible 5X5 Building Boards for the smaller LEGO sets.

And these LEGO Duplo sets are fantastic for beginners….LEGO Pink Duplo Set , LEGO DUPLO My First Cars and Trucks

3. Melissa and Doug Stamp Set $5-20

The possibilities are endless here too. Kids can create their own images of animal kingdoms, princess castles, dino lands & so much more. So grab a big poster board or blank sheets and let them create their own little world to play on. This is something that requires no batteries, is simple and fun. Help them design their own playscape!

Here are my favorites…Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Stamp Set: Animals,Melissa & Doug Wooden Stamps Sets (2): Dinosaurs and VehiclesMelissa & Doug Drawing Pad

4. Board Games $5-25

What great way to spend that cozy holiday break….drinking cocoa, watching the snow fall and playing games with the family! We love games. Especially when the winter gets to be a bit boring, these can lighten the mood! This is a wonderful way to kick off Winter.

Buy these classics like Jenga, Operation, Candy Land, Mouse Trap, Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots, Clue & Battleship… and so much more!

5. Little People Nativity Scene & Noah’s Ark $24 & $29

I love Little People Sets. The princesses, the animals, the barn..we have so many. But these two are adorable! And perfect for the season. It inspires storytelling for your little ones and something that can be used for so long! Plus, it’s special to explain the meaning of Christmas.

Get them here..Fisher-Price Little People Nativity

Noah’s Ark Playset

6. Melissa and Doug Jumbo Stuffed Animals $25-35

These cute things are nearly 2 ft or more in size and make great play companions. Kids can tackle and play their little day away. There are lot of adorable animals to choose from and can even go bigger and bigger!

I love the Dino, Shark, & Orca Whale

7. Green Toys Build-A-Bouquet Floral Playset $12..On sale!

My daughter, and even sons, love this set! It’s so cute. They create all different kinds of flower scenes and use their little bugs and nets along with it. Great for motor skills and creativity. A must have!!

This wagon is oh so adorable and amazingly sturdy. My boys even tested it out by riding in it and it withstood them..despite its smaller frame! Green Toys make amazing products that are very durable and timeless. Get this to haul around all the goodies this Christmas!

9. Teepee Tent $49

Give the gift of space…play space that is.. Let your child set up their own little play room in this tent and get creative! Put some blocks inside or their favorite games and let them set up and design the inside. Plus they can snuggle up with cozy blankets and watch a good Christmas movie when they are done with presents & dinner. Or even camp out by the Christmas tree!

This one is on sale now…get it here!

10. Whatever their heart desires..

Ok ok… we gotta buy at least one of the overpriced items they beg for each year. I always take them to stores and let them look at the Holiday catalogs to see what kind of toy they will really go nuts over having. Picking that one thing they absolutely love, actually makes them appreciate it more.

I have done this each year now and those toys are the ones they still get out and remember exactly when it got it.

So go ahead and buy that big toy they think is the bees knees too!

Happy Holidays Loves!!

The Best Winter Skin Care Products…The Gift That Keeps On Giving…


Let’s face it…winter can do a number on our skin. That’s why I bump up the moisturizers this time of year. Nobody wants dry, dull skin. I’ve gathered up some of the best products to try. So while we all know what makeup look and party dress we love, let’s not forget to do a little party prep on our skin and hair to really shine!!!

My essential list for ice cold temperatures are a ultra rich face lotion, gentle facial and body washes, a sweet scent for the tresses, always a good lip scrub to avoid chapped lips, a brightening facial mask, a luxurious bath to keep skin soft & top it all off with an intense body crème to seal the deal.

In today’s ring, we only have two contending brands that I adore, especially during Christmas. Philosophy and Lush get it right time & time again. The scents are glorious and even the packaging is so darn cute!!

From Philosphy, they have an amazing hydrating & anti-aging face lotion,”Miracle Worker”, that can beat the winter harshness. Now their shampoo/bubbles/body wash combinations & body lotions are heavenly. I like “amazing grace” but they have a ton of scents perfect for the holidays too. Divine!!!!!!

Now Lush, my all time favorite for anything, does every holiday right. So naturally, pun intended, they are right on par for Christmas. I’m looking forward to the Cranberry Festive Face Mask and Bûche De  Noël Face and Body Cleanser I just found. They are always gentle and perfectly balanced to protect nearly anyone’s skin.

So don’t forget to share the love with your fellow loved ones. These would make anyone a happy gifted girl. Perfect for stalking stuffers too! Make sure you follow along Pinterest for more great ideas and direct links to buy!!!

H&M Holiday Fashion Haul…

Holy H&M Holiday Sales!!! I was getting some Christmas  shopping done this weekend and came across some amazing deals for myself too! Most stores, this time of year, have an out of the world clearance section. Not to mention, a ton of deals. Naturally I could’ve bought up a ton at every women’s clothing store…but today I opted in to once place that had so many deals I couldn’t decide. Cost was about $100 for over 10 items..including a peacoat!!

To get started, the clearance jewelry was insane. They have to make way for the New Year’s line…Most of these pieces ranged from 12.99 and up originally..I was getting them for as low as $3.00!! All of this was about $30 and there was a plethora of styles…

 

The adorable winter accessories…they had some clearance winter headbands and deals on mittens…so so cute…cost for both $8.00…


Now the sweaters.. I love the quality and look of an over-sized sweater in winter…dress them up or down…they are a must, especially here in the Midwest and we know how to style them for sure.. I grabbed these for both for $35 on sale.. I even grabbed a basic white shirt to wear under these for only $9.99 that would equally look amazing on its own if I were to get too warm…

$25 peacoat!!!! They have it in a ton of colors…including Olive❤️

They also had a ton of cute holiday gear and we grabbed up this cute Christmas necklace that had interchanging charms that included snowmen, Christmas tree, candy cane and so on!! Cost was only $10

So whether you’re looking for gifts or to add to your Winter Fashion..H&M has some really great deals right now!! I’ll update when I have had the chance to style these pieces.

Happy Holidays!!

Xoxo💋
