Christmas Gift Guide for Babies & Toddlers

I had several people ask if I was going to post a Christmas gift guide this year, so I wanted to pull together a handful of favorites to share! This includes some things we have & love already, as well as some items the girls are getting this year and some I’m filing away for future gift ideas.

My girls are not too picky when it comes to toys, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen them not like something.  I’ve been trying to keep in mind a want, wear, read, need mentality but honestly am not sticking to just one thing per category. Playing Santa is just way too much fun and I am so excited to see my girls’ reactions on Christmas morning, especially Ellie who really gets it all this year!

Ells has her heart set on a microphone as well as this food truck... which, I realize is kind of geared more towards younger kids, but, a three year old wants what a three year old wants! :) She also seems very interested in board games, Barbies, play-doh, art supplies & bath bombs this year.

Lo loves books & babies, so I know there will be both of those under our tree for her this year.  She also likes our Little People collection (perfect for even tiny hands & mouths!), so I’m thinking that princess parade will be on her list as well.  Lo will stand on top of our toilet seat and play in the sink all day if I let her, so I know she'd be obsessed with this sink too. I haven't fully committed to the mess that would come along with it though - if you happen to have it, do you hate yourself a little bit for buying it??

Islie is obviously way too little to even know what’s going on this year.  She has quite the collection of toys being passed down to her, but she will have a few small gifts & her stocking on Christmas morning.   We're thinking a little bit of cash put away for her might be the best option to even the playing field, so to speak.  I'm sure she'll appreciate it much more one day anyway. :)

Our play kitchen is one of the toys my girls continue to play with most, and they also still love their piggy rocker (not sold anymore, but similar here).  They love playing in their princess tent, which is very affordable and can definitely withstand some toddler abuse. ;)  Also, this grocery store is the cutest thing ever and know my girls would get so much use out of it - maybe next year!

If you're interested in Hunter boots, I grabbed Ellie's current pair last Black Friday at Nordstrom for about $35, so I’d check there for a sale this year.  She wears them pretty much every day, definitely worth the money!

I could honestly go on and on, but I hope this helps! I can’t believe we’re not much more than a month away from the big day! :)

  13. I was in a very bad situation financially after losing all my savings to a cryptocurrency investment scam, I was swindled off all my entire savings and went bankrupt after borrowing from everyone around me. I thought I was going to lose my life until I saw a pop-up on the internet about WARDRIVERS CYBER, a cryptocurrency recovery company that has been helping many others to recover their funds. I hurriedly contacted them and gave them all the information about the scam that took my entire savings, it only took WARDRIVERS Cyber 48 hours to recover my funds, and was able to track down these scammers. I’m truly grateful for their efforts and swift response in helping me recover my money.

  14. A few months ago, I stumbled upon a post about a cryptocurrency investment platform that I thought was a good idea at that time to invest in crypto, I didn’t realize I was being catfished by the cryptocurrency investment manager who promised me huge returns on my investment. I lost my capital of $470,000 and interest without receiving any profits in return. I was depressed and had no idea how to move forward. I told my colleague at work about it and I was referred to Astraweb Cyber Service, a cryptocurrency recovery company. I provided all the information about the scam to them, and Astraweb was able to recover my funds within 72 hours. I’m truly grateful for their help and I want to recommend their service to everyone affected by these cryptocurrency scams. You can reach Astraweb via E-Mail: ASTRAWEB@CYBERDUDE. COM
