Happy Cyber Monday!
With the internet covered in crazy good deals today (well, for the next hour anyway), I thought it would be the perfect time to share a holiday gift guide for the babies and toddlers in your life. While I know this will be another holiday where Liam will be more interested in the crinkling sounds of the tissue paper and straight up eating the wrapping paper and bows (haha!), we still have a few special surprises for him. I LOVE giving gifts but sometimes the holidays stress me out with the sheer number of loved ones to buy for and the hype of the latest and greatest gifts to give but I recently saw the idea of centering gift buying around these four things ... want, need, wear, read and I loved the idea so much! So here is a little holiday gift guide and Liam's want, need, wear, and read .....

Liam LOVES hiding under blankets right now and I can tell many homemade forts are in our future. With that said, we decided to get him his very own teepee to play in! I can't wait to set it up, put a string of Christmas lights inside, and see his face light up on Christmas morning! Tegu blocks are also a fun addition to your child's toy collection. Liam got some for his birthday and these magnetic blocks have already brought hours of fun (even for us adults!). We've never tried bath crayons before but they will be in Liam's stocking this year to pull out on a snowy winter day when there seems to be nothing else to do but take a bath!

A couple of needs ... his very first pair of mittens and a new hat since his head has grown out of all the ones he wore last year.

Just like every other little one, Liam is constantly growing out of his clothes. We got him a new fun pair of Christmas jammies and a comfy hooded romper since we spend most of our days this winter at home.

I recently hosted an Usborne Books & More party and it was the perfect opportunity to add to our Christmas book collection as well as our growing library. We love the "That's Not My" series and picked out the That's Not My Penguin and That's Not My Puppy (since Liam is obsessed with them!) for his stocking. Liam will be taking his first trip to the ocean this coming April so we also got him a seashore book. It is from their Shine a Light series where you hold a flashlight behind the pages in the dark and images appear! They are so cool! This book and his very own flashlight will be wrapped up inside his new teepee on Christmas morning.
Happy Christmas Shopping! XO
