Hello friends! It’s Elsie! I am excited to write today’s gift guide because even before I was a mom, I have been a proud aunt for more than 10 years. I love shopping for kiddos—it’s my favorite part of the holidays. Here are some things on my list this year for my own kids and also some of the older kiddos on our Christmas list!
1. Mouse vacation set
I love these toys! Everything Maileg is my absolute favorite!
2. First balance bike I REALLY want to get this for Nova. It’s so gorgeous and looks like a lot of fun!
3. Instax square camera
If you’ve got a larger gift budget, this is absolutely the best gift I’ve ever given my daughter. We’ve used it SO much. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve made so many memories with this camera!
By far one of my favorite gifts to give kiddos. They come in lots of colors including blue and yellow too!
5. Take Out Plush Toy
Just so cute!
6. Pottery wheel
This is a genius gift. 10-year-old Elsie is SUPER into this!
7. Calico Critters otter family
These are in Nova’s stocking this year. They are my favorite toy to collect for her. They are getting a DIY dollhouse to play in, too. I love how both the mom and dad otter are carrying a baby!
8. Easel with storage drawer
This is a NICE easel that can grow with your child into adulthood.
11. Monkey family
12. Dream World Puzzles
Nova is SO into puzzles. It’s not as easy as you would think to find puzzles under 100 pieces and there are a huge variety of these. Plus, I love Emily Martin and everything she does, so it’s fun to pass that along to Nova!
Happy shopping! XX- Elsie
