Just a quick short but sweet little gift guide, a few fun stocking stuffers for little ones. You know, on top of those toothbrushes and chocolates. Happy Friday!
1.Star Wars Calendar – 2.Magic Set – 3.Perplexus (great to start with junior or original) – 4.Before You Grow Up Book – 5.Socks – 6.Simon Game – 7.Marble Maze – 8.Tic-Tac-Toe – 9.Mini Mioche x Heart + Habit Cowl Hoodie – 10.Baseball Pitcher – 11.The Book With No Pictures – 12.Over the Door Indoor Basketball Hoop – 13.Snap Circuit – 14.Chess Board
Mostly for the little guy in the 4-7 age group, since naturally that’s what I gravitate too. And when I say little HIM any of these things could also be great little her gifts, it’s just more fun to separate things – I know my kids both enjoy both classic him and her gifts. This is the list I’ll be pulling from for Kingston’s gifts, it’s a good thing he won’t be checking the blog anytime soon, or he’d be mighty confused when he got Santa laid his presents under the tree. More gift guides, still to come (you know, if you’re interested): LITTLE HER, HOST/HOSTESS, SECRET SANTA, HIM, YOGA (can’t leave it out), STOCKING STUFFERS, and maybe LITTLE THEM or FAMILY.
1. Astrology Calendar – 2.Shawl Funnel Scarf – 3.Quartz Necklace – 4.Waxed Canvas Bag – 5.Marbled Notepads – 6.Fedora – 7.Marble iPhone Case – 8.Crawling Earring – 9.Striped Oversized Tee – 10.Black Zipper Pouch – 11.Face Mask
The first or our gift guides, I have a few more lined up. I wanted to get them all posted prior to the crazy sale season (not to be confused with the actual holiday season) but sick kiddos take priority over everything and I’m running a tad late (on everything). So (enough with the excuses) here is my first round-up of gifts, great for the big HER in your life – friend, sister, cool teenager (IDK, I don’t know what’s hip with the kids these days), maybe mom, and probably you (just nonchalantly, show your partner). Happy Hump Day, and stay healthy – I’m off to wipe more boogers!
Let’s talk about that little sweater collection that I designed with Toto Knits, we truly love every item (go figure, I know). My kids can usually be caught wearing one of the items almost everyday – not always to school though, because things tend to get lost when they go there (and by tend I mean, always).
If you haven’t heard me talk about this collaboration enough, I wanted to take another chance to show you a few photos I love and just I don’t know give you guys a chance to win some of the collection? It’s timeless, with a hint of trend, it’s season-less with a Canadiana style, and generally the styles are pretty unisex. All 100% Organic cotton knit by talented single mothers in Africa, Toto Knit is both wonderfully eco and humane friendly – they are doing great things and I am so lucky to have gotten the chance to work with them!
The best gifts are always the ones that are given for no reason, other than you thought the receiver would like it. It’s nice to tell someone you were thinking of them, without actually telling them. Not that you need to gift something to show your love, but I think you catch my drift.
Every year I have this plan, I want to make a box of “just because gifts”. When I see really cool items that I just love, I want to buy them and keep them in a box so I have a treasure box of “just because gifts” to give away when the moment calls for it. Since I have yet to follow through with this physical plan (I think it’s a pretty great one), I thought I’d start a little series of just because gifts. Like a treasure post of gifts for you guys to use for a special little moment, a Just Because Gift Guide.
PS. I used only handmade items sold on Etsy for this post, I often find the best and most unique gifts there so it’s always the first place I look.
My final gift guide of the wintery holiday season and to wrap the whole shebang up, it is filled with a few gifts for that most gracious host/hostess of the party, maybe a secret Santa or a good friend. A lot of the gifts in the him or her guide would also be good, but why not throw in a few more options for the fun of it.
So tell me, have you started your shopping/making of gifts? What is the favorite gift you’ve bought (or thought to buy, if you haven’t started your shopping yet – like me) someone so far this year?
