Tula Baby Carrier
We LOVE baby wearing. Whether you are traveling or just need to get stuff done around the house, the Tula baby carrier is a great option to carry your little one. Not only are your hands free, but the carrier is lightweight so you won’t be sweating and the material is breathable for baby. The straps are cushioned and they have tons of cute prints too. The Free to Grow carrier can be used for babies as small as 7 pounds and up to 45, which means you don’t need to buy an infant insert or another carrier when they are a toddler. We love seeing our favorite celebrity moms and dads wear their babies too!
Hatch Baby Grow
I wish this would have been around when our son was born. As many parents who have experienced time in the NICU or had a rough start in the beginning can tell you, even after you leave the hospital, you have to go into the doctor’s office for checkups a couple times a week. They usually want to check the baby’s weight and vitals. The founder of Hatch Grow developed the product for this very reason. Rather than take her baby to the doctor’s office to be weighed, she wanted to be able to weigh her baby and only go into the doctor’s office when necessary. You can also track your baby’s vitals via the app. We love the Hatch Grow because not only does it help you check the weight of your baby but serves as a diaper changing table too. The material is cushiony yet firm and easy to wipe down.
For Dad Beachmate
Okay, so let’s be honest a gift for dad usually means a gift for the whole family. But a Beachmate is definitely better than a blender! Whether you are going to the beach or the park, the Beachmate is an all-in-one system that you can carry all your beach gear-towels, snacks, and then use it to play at the beach. We love it because it saves us the hassle of multiple trips to the car. All of the buckets and shovels are super sturdy, which is great with kids. You can even personalize the set, which makes for an even more special gift. Even if we don’t go to the beach, we like bringing it to the park. Because everything fits into the bag, it is easier for us to keep track of everything.
Our dads love taking their boys to Legoland. We love gifts that are experiences and Legoland is one the whole family will enjoy. Our boys ask everyday if they can go visit Ninjago and Batman. And they love being able to drive their Legos cars around the racetrack. One of our favorite parts of the park is Miniland USA where there are Lego miniatures of all the famous landmarks and some amazing Star Wars replicas. This is sure to be a hit with the family and you can look forward to making lots of fun memories.
For the Kids
We love reading at night. Whether you have a toddler or a teen, Zondervan has some great books that your family will enjoy. One fun idea is to read a different Christmas story each night as you countdown towards Christmas. This will help your family focus on the true meaning of the season. Here are some of our holiday favorites that we think you will enjoy. ‘Twas the Evening of Christmas, Bright Night, Legends of Christmas Treasury, Snuggle Time Christmas Stories, Glimmer & Shine, God’s Great Love for You, God’s Big Plans for Me, Courage to Soar and May the Faith Devotions.
Finn & Emma Pajamas and Buddies
Who doesn’t love a pair of cozy pajamas and a little buddy to snuggle with. We love Finn & Emma pajamas and toys because we don’t have to worry about toxins and chemicals. Finn & Emma use only G.O.T.S. certified organic cotton and non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. This is especially great for little ones with sensitive skin. Plus they have the cutest prints. Our little guys love their elephant and origami pajamas. And they love being cozy with their buddies.
Green Piñata Toy Subscription
In our house, my husband daily talks about getting rid of toys because we have so many. But what if instead of keeping toys, you rotated them? Green Piñata Toy subscription sends you a curated box of high-quality toys each month based on your little one’s age. You can edit the selections before they are sent to you. At the end of each month, you simply pack it back in the box and send it back with the enclosed packing label. We love it because it still gives us fresh toys but by sending it back, we aren’t adding to the clutter. Our little ones loved the toys that were in the boxes. We think this makes a great gift for the grandparent’s house too!
For Baby-People Toy Co Mochi Building Block Set
If you watch our Instastories, you will often see us using our People Toy Co People Building blocks. They also have a great set of building blocks for babies and toddlers. The Mochi Blocks are made of a special rice-plastic technology that makes them safe for little hands and mouths. They are free from harmful adhesives and paints too. Big brother enjoyed “helping” his little sister build a tower. This makes a great gift for baby’s first Christmas or for someone that is expecting a baby.
For the Photo Lovers-Nowvel Photo Books
This one is great for just about anyone, because who doesn’t love photo books?! We are all guilty of having photos on our phone and not doing anything with them. With Nowvel, you simply take photos from your phone and drop them into the app to make custom photo books. We pretty much spent hours doing it because we loved it so much. This can be a great gift for mom, grandma or a relative as a brag book with all the kiddos.
For the Disney Lover-Disney on Ice
Disney on Ice is a great gift for the Disney lover. We started bringing our boys when they were one. We weren’t sure if they would be able to sit through the show, but they loved it. The music and lights mesmerized them and we have been going ever since. They enjoy seeing Mickey and his friends perform to their favorite songs from their favorite movies and we enjoy seeing them light up. This is a great option to get your “Disney fix,” especially if you don’t live close to one of the theme parks.
For the Schedule Keeper-Corie Clark Purposeful Planner
We first started using the Purposeful Planner because it had a menu planner and I wanted to plan our family meals. But as I used the different worksheets in the planner like the monthly master task list and budget sheet, I fell in love. People make fun of me because I use a paper planner, but I love crossing off things on my to-do list and I like to write down things so that I remember them. She also has cute desk pads and office supplies that coordinate with the planners. This is great for the person in the family that keeps track of everyone’s schedules and coordinating everything.
For the Chocolate Lover-Chocolate Pizza Company
This could be a gift that benefits everyone! If you give chocolate, hopefully the person will share with the family. The Chocolate Pizza Company has great gift sets for Christmas. They created a chocolate pizza that has different types of candy toppings. You can even customize the message for the recipient. They even have Peanut Butter Wings which are rippled potato chips covered in creamy peanut butter and drenched in rich milk or dark chocolate.
