Wondering what to give the little kids (think ages 4-6) in your life? We asked our contributor team to share what their own kids are asking for this year, and what we, as moms, like to give them. Enjoy!
Toddlers (think ages one to three) can be a tough group to parent, but we love how excited they get about everything, including holiday gifts! We asked our contributors to share their favorite gift ideas for this age group. Enjoy!
Babies can be so tough to buy gifts for. They seem to completely change every few weeks during that first year, making it hard for their toys to keep up. This gift guide has ideas for babies in their first few weeks at home up until their first birthday. Each of these items should last through at least a few months of development for the little ones in your life so they won’t just be one afternoon’s worth of fun.
Shopping mindfully or practicing conscious consumerism can be a powerful way to show our support to struggling or underrepresented businesses this holiday season. It can also be, to use a phrase we lean on more and more these days, A LOT. It’s a lot to think about, it can be overwhelming to navigate, and it definitely can put strain on your budget. In today’s episode, Meagan and Sarah discuss where we our in our own shopping priorities, what we’d like to do more of this holiday season, and how we’ve practiced mindful shopping recently. We also talk through some specific purchases we’ve made through small online retailers recently, as a way to get your creative wheels turning.
We went back into our Amazon orders from last year’s holiday season, and rounded up some of the stocking stuffers and “filler” gifts that actually turned out to be hits with our kids. All these will arrive by Christmas with free Prime shipping if you order ASAP!
Once the gifts have been purchased, what do we actually DO with them? Hide and hope? Box up and ship? Wrap and display? Stack in cardboard boxes until the eleventh hour? Turns out, it’s a little of all of the above in our houses. In the final installment in our Holiday Shopping series, Meagan and Sarah discuss the tricky time between when gifts are procured and when they are opened.
