Is your Christmas shopping done yet?
Mine is not … but it is getting there! Thankfully, it’s not too big of a task these days. Over the years we have scaled back our holiday gift giving – stockings and a few family gifts mostly. I like it better that way. It allows us to focus on Advent and time together.
If you’re on the lookout for family gifts I have a great little guide for you to peruse! From activities that will provide laughs and relaxation to fun with a side of learning – these gift options will for sure bring smiles to your Christmas season. Happy shopping!
Simple Modern Water Bottle | All my littles have a stainless steel water bottle and we’ve been really happy with this brand. What makes them really special though is decorating them with waterproof stickers! There are endless choices on Etsy (I just ordered darling Disney ones from Wish Upon Magic) and when we travel they love picking stickers up as memorable souvenirs.
Confetti Crayons | The best way to amp up those family coloring sessions!
Yoto Player | Eli got a Yoto Player for his birthday and it has become a family favorite! We joined the Yoto Club too and now get 2 new cards a month for just $10. The Make Your Own Cards are a wonderful way to connect distant family and for the next while you can get 10% off your Yoto purchase! Don’t forget the Adventure Jacket!
HP Sprocket Studio Photo Printer | Edit photos through the app and then easily print 4×6 photos at home; such a time saver! I love being able to have photos for projects FAST!
Step Into The Nutcracker | Quarto launched the most gorgeous holiday book – sturdy and unique, this one is a must! You can add others like The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, and Sleeping Beauty from the same layer by layer collections.
Food Network Farmstead Ceramic Cookware Set | We have been cooking together more and more (versus me pumping out meals and snacks) and it makes me so happy! Add some fresh cookware to your kitchen and then consider something fun like a Hello Fresh meal kit or Home Chef box to complete a memory making experience gift everyone will love. Both of those links will give you a great discount to try them out – that’s what we did this fall.
Usborne Puzzles | Nothing beats the quality of Usborne, for books or puzzles. From simple 9 piece ones for little puzzlers to 100 and 300 piece ones. We grab these again and again. I just bought the human body one for my crew to do over the holidays.
Clixo |If you have LEGO or Magnatile fans they are going to love Clixo! It’s the coolest building set that boosts imagination like no other.
Tiger Tiger Burning Bright | Poetry is part of our daily reading and this year we have been working through Sing a Song of the Seasons. The publisher and illustrator just launched an animal poetry version and it’s on the top of our wish list. The illustrations are perfection!
Bold Made | History and fun all in one! Bold Made merges Old Maid and Go Fish with remarkable, real-life women. It’s so good! If you’re looking for other card games we love Sleeping Queens and I just wrapped Cover Your Assets as one of our family gifts.
Squishmallow | When you pull out those holiday blankets, flannel sheets, and throw pillows you obviously need a Christmas stuffy too, right? So far we have a giant Grinch and a Christmas tree Squishmallow that flips inside out to Santa that both join our winter couch snuggles.
Querkles | It’s a coloring mystery with Querkles! A whole new level of relaxation for those who enjoy coloring.
