Initially I wasn’t going to do a gift guide/wishlist, mainly because my husband and I decided that going forward Christmas in our home is going to be simple, about being together, being thankful and giving. Not about receiving.
We even set a house present rule: 1 Large present from Santa, 2 presents from Mom & Dad (one of course clothes, and the second something special).
We think this will be a great way to curb over spending during the holidays and keep the kiddos being thankful for the things they receive and already have. I’m really big on handmade gifts, and this year will be heavy on the handmade gifts. I thought I’d put together a wish lists of sorts of things I want or wish I could buy all handmade items. I also feel it’s really important to support the handmade and small business community, for many reasons but really most importantly they have the best things.
I created 5 lists, one for every family member and an additional one for housewares (because these might make great gifts for extended family and friends).
Today’s list is a wish list for Kingston, or your own little boy (some of these items might also be great for a little girl). 1.Fantastic Fox Tee (KLT WORKS $24) : King loves animals and currently the Fantastic Mr. Fox is one of his favorites.
2.Striped funnel neck shirt (JACKSPART $35) : It’s stylish and cozy, I can think of so many fun ways to style this and King would love the neck to hide in.
3. Charcoal Logo Tee (PEG AND AWL $18): I just love the simple graphic on this tee, and really King loves all new clothes.
4.Custom Pencil Case (MONTCLAIR MADE $32) : Kingston loves to draw and write and what a great place to keep his crayons, also he’s obsessed with seeing his name in writing so he would love this case.
5.Raccoon Sweatshirt (b.childenswear $34) : Another animal on a shirt, King would love to wear a cute raccoon like Rodney around.
6.Reusable alphabet wall decals (POP AND LOLI $91) : These wall decals would look great and go great with our preschool homeschooling.
7.Little bean organic tee (LITTLE BEAN PRINTS $24) : It’s an adorable print and Kingston is so very interested in how everything works, the image of a growing plant would be a huge hit.
8.Kitty Bowling (KITTY BBLOVE $45) : He doesn’t particularity love kitties, but this bowling set is adorable. Also Cute Kitty pins are less likely to be used as weapons. ;)
9.Wooly Mammoth Hat (SIMPLY SARI $20) : Will keep him warm and extra cute!
10. Robot with Secret Hide out(DESIGNLAB443 $40) : My boy loves ROBOTS, and a stuffie with a secret hide away! He would carry him everywhere.
Happy Shopping!! Which item is your favorite? Gift guides for the rest of the family are coming in the next couple days!
