Gift Guide for the Kiddos

Hey, Hey Friends!

Happy Monday!

I spent a big part of Saturday morning wrapping all the presents Santa’s elves has delivered and by that I mean I opened all the boxes Fed Ex, UPS, and USPS has delivered.  If you’re like me, online shopping for Christmas gifts is the way I do it, but that means a TON of boxes.  I got all organized this weekend, got everything wrapped, and had a chance to see it all out in front of me at the same time.  I still have a few items to purchase but the majority is all done!  WAHOO!

I love love love reading what others are buying or asking for {and apparently you girls do too}.  I’ve had several of you ask about more gift guides so I’ve got that for you today.  I made a list for each of my kiddos.  Some of the items on these lists are items my kiddos already have and love.  Others are items they’re asking for this year.

-Ebby Lee-
{Age 8}

#1-Locket Necklace-Ebby Lee had a locket that broke so I’m replacing it this Christmas.

#2 Laptop-Ebby Lee is dying for a laptop.  This is her big request on her Christmas list this year.

#3 Water Bottle-I try to think about things my kiddos really need when I’m buying presents.  This is an example of that AND it’s cute.  Win-win!

#4 American Girl Mega Construx Set-Ebby Lee is a big fan of these American Girl sets.  If your daughter likes legos AND American Girl dolls-I’d highly recommend these.

#5-Ugg Boots-This is something Ebby Lee owns but if she had to name some of her favorite things, these would be on the list.  If you’re an Ugg owner yourself, then you know how comfy they are.  These are the shoes she grabs first every single day.  She wears them {too soon} as soon as the temperatures drop below seventy degrees and continues all season long. {Except on p.e. days. :)} Usually a pair lasts her two years so that helps me justify the price.  They’d make a great Christmas gift!

{Age 7}
#1 Garmin Jr.-Nixon has been asking for this watch since his bestie got one months ago!  #thedayhasfinallycome

#2 Robe-A kiddo who loves being comfy cozy needs this robe.  πŸ™‚

#3 Dude Perfect Football-Nixon is a big fan of Dude Perfect AND sports.  This is the perfect combo.

#4 Jersey-Nixon has put a football jersey on the top of his Christmas list.  If you have a sports’ fan, it’s a great idea for Christmas.

#5 The Football Fanbook-Are you sensing a theme here with Nixon?  Ha!

{Age 5}
#1 Lego Juniors-These sets are perfect for five-year-old Bowen.  He can do them alone without help and he loves completing them all by himself!

#2 Who Tooted Board Game-I’m pretty sure this game could be on any BOY list!  My mom has this for her house and my boys laugh and laugh and laugh while they play.

#3 Animal Planet T-Rex Adventure-Both of my boys are into these Animal Planet kits, but Bowen is the prime age.  He will play and play with these.

#4 VTech Kidizoom Smart Watch-Bowen got this for his birthday and was STOKED when he opened this up.

#5 Kickball-All of my kiddos like playing random things outside that require a more “recess ball”.  I ordered these that will be a little sturdier than those thin plastic ones.

{Age 2}

#1 Play Kitchen-This is the big gift on Britt’s list.  I decided to go with a small version because she’s tiny.  I want her to be able to reach the counter and out of all the kitchens I found this one seemed to be the smallest.

#2 Play Food-Every kitchen needs some food.  πŸ™‚

#3 Melissa and Doug Cardboard Blocks-Britt’s physical therapist mentioned these to me as a good gift for Christmas.  I think they’re something all the kiddos will end up playing with.

#4 Straw Sippy Cups-It’s time for these!  Britt’s been killing it with the straw so I thinks he’s ready for some cups like this.

#5 Baby Bottles-Britt has a baby doll and her favorite thing to do is feed the baby her bottle.  We lose that bottle ALL THE TIME!  I think this will make a great stocking stuffer.

Hope this helps someone…grandma, neighbor, aunt, mom, friend and more find something for someone on your list.  Have a GREAT day, girls!  XO

    Thank you for the gift ideas! I think another post that could be interesting to people is how do you do your Christmas morning? And how do you go about opening up your presence. For instance, some people open up the presents all at once. Some people have one child open up all their presents and then the next child open up all their presents etc. Another family I know has a bunch of kids and so they take turns opening up one present at a time. Seems like it’s kind of interesting

    Love all the lists! How do you store/organize all the lego sets? Two of my kiddos love these, but I am trying to figure out a system! HELP! πŸ™‚

    Christy…to be honest I've got nothing! I'm so sorry to say that! We bought Nixon legos and he just wasn't into them. Bowen is a big fan but he tends to take his time putting the set together and then all the legos are dumped in a bin. That's probably not what we should be doing tho!!

    Love this! My 7 year old is getting a football jersey for Christmas, too. And he just picked out the exact football book on our special day Friday. He's been reading and studying it ever since! πŸ™‚
