2016 Holiday Gift Guide
It’s that time of the year again! Time for our annual Holiday gift guide where we give you a list of some of our favorite products from this year!
For the Babies
One of my all time favorite infant products this year has been the dockAtot! This product is amazing for newborns and even up to toddlers. The Deluxe fits kiddos from 0-9 months and is a great place to keep your little. The materials it is made with are safe and breathable so you don’t have to ever worry (because we obviously have enough to worry about!). We absolutely love it for tummy time and naps in our home. Heck, it’s even perfect for cuddling. This is one product that I’m not sure how we ever lived without in the past. Two kids later, and this is going to be a life saver with my third! Even If you have an older kid, they make awesome floor beds for your young toddler as well, or even a great nap mat! Make sure you check out their deluxe model for infants HERE. This is a great product that we definitely consider essential!
Lulujo‘s Baby’s First Year muslin blankets are absolutely adorable! They have a couple different ones but we love our “loved beyond measure” blanket. It is super soft and makes an absolutely perfect photo prop to record milestones. We just cannot wait until our newest little is here to take amazing photos with ours! I love the modern black and white and it is such great quality. Seriously, can you think of a better way to document baby’s first year than with one of these?! This is definitely a product you will want to save for your kiddo when they grow up to keep forever. They even come with the cards for the milestones to add or of course you can add your own. Check out this one HERE.
The original Woombie swaddle is something that I first heard about from a friend and was told I couldn’t live without when my daughter was born. Once my daughter was born I learned how true that was! The Woombie is definitely one of our favorite swaddles. I love that it is lightweight, zips up and is very secure. Your infant will be able to safely wiggle inside while being snug and and comfortably swaddled. These are harder to sneak their way out of than most of the swaddles on the market which is a huge plus considering my son was a master escape artist and I am sure our next little boy will be too. My kiddo has yet to learn to get out of one of these! They come in so many cute patterns you will definitely find one you love. Make sure you look at all of them HERE!
I realize that kids are picky and you will never know which pacifier they’re going to like but I can honestly say I’ve never met a little that will not take a MAM pacifier. In fact, MAM happens to be the ONLY pacifier my daughter will take. I’m super excited about their holiday pacifiers which are even perfect stocking stuffers for younger toddlers. These pacifiers are so stinking cute and very festive! We love these. Of course, MAM always has your kiddo at heart and are great pacifiers for development. Make sure you look at their site HERE, you wont be disappointed!
Ok, so as moms we are all a little paranoid…right? That may fade a little with each new addition but still, when your kiddo feels like they are on fire, it is the worst feeling in the world. Thankfully, Kinsa is here to give you some peace of mind. I absolutely love their smart ear thermometer and the fact that not only does it have a one second read time (one second!) so that I don’t have to fight with a wiggly infant (or 5 year old) to sit still but also that it’s super non invasive so that I can get an accurate reading while they are sleeping without disrupting them at all. After all, nothing is worse than waking up a sick kiddo! This super cool thermometer stores all your kiddos temp’s and even symptoms in their app! Just show your phone to your pediatrician and they have all the info they need! Get yours HERE.
For the Kids
Pediped shoes are seriously amazing. I love that they’re fantastic for my kids’ feet and development. My daughter is on this huge shoe kick (ha ha) and is obsessed with shoes, particularly sparkly ones. I love that there is a company out there that not only makes shoes that I can feel good about putting on my kids feet, but ones that are also cute enough that my kids get excited about wearing them! After all, NOTHING is worse than a shoe meltdown before walking out the door (Which my 5 yr old is famous for unfortunately). From babies to big kids, Pediped has all sorts of styles for every part of development for you to pick from. Your stylish little diva is going to want ALL of them. Check out all their options HERE!
All infants need toys to engage them while simultaneously encouraging them to benefit developmentally. Sassy’s Grasp and Giggle Guy allows babies to explore different textures as well as engaging them with bright colors. We absolutely love this toy! It’s bright, fun and adorable! Make sure you check out this adorable toy that any infant will absolutely love and want to cuddle HERE.
For the Parents
If you have an expecting mom on your gifting list, Covered Goods is a must have item for her! Every mom deserves something that makes them feel good even when they’re busy mom-ing. This awesome product is not only a nursing cover (as pictured) but it also makes a stylish cart cover, car seat cover and even a cute infinity scarf for after those baby days are over (or if mom has a little spit up on her she needs to hide!). We absolutely love this product and especially the cute styles it comes in! You can see all of their styles HERE. Seriously. Make sure you pick one up for yourself too. You wont regret it!
I cannot possibly be the only one who always has an impossible time picking out the perfect gift for Dad. He’s impossible to buy for! Klean Kanteen fixed that problem for me this year. They make this awesome insulated growler that is perfect for any Dad (or Grandpa) on your list. For my beer loving hubby, this is perfect to keep his beer cold no matter what he’s doing whether it’s having a guys night, hanging outside with a bonfire or even camping or hunting. Seriously, every guy is going to want one. He doesn’t like beer? That’s fine. He can keep 64 oz of Ice water, cold coffee, whatever he wants in there at the perfect temperature! The stainless look is so sleek and it’s great quality. Check out this one HERE!
