Here’s what I’m la la loving for littles this week . . .
By now, I should have dressing my kids down to a science. I have been a mom for thirteen years, after all. But there is no specific science when there is four and everything fits everyone differently.
With Ella, shopping was fun. A girl. I had not trouble tipping things in my cart, virtually or at Target. But when the boys came it was different. It was more like settling for something I wasn’t sure of. I’d go for simple, sturdy, sort-of-stylish. Thankfully, styles got better over time and by my fourth shopping for boys clothes was fun. Except that . . . shopping for four kids, total, isn’t all that fun. It’s more like work. There are budgets to adhere to, tops to coordinate with bottoms, hand-me-downs to pass out or pack up.
Can you relate?
I have some friends that have their . . .
I know you don’t need me to announce that Christmas is coming, but…. Christmas is coming. I haven’t started my shopping yet (nothing new), and if you are a little last minute like me, I thought I’d share a few ideas to get you started. Are you ready for the La La Lovely Gift Guide for Littles? I should note that a few of my littles aren’t so little anymore. So I’ve included a few gifts for a few different age groups. Mine are currently between ages 4 to 12. Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite gift ideas for littles this year:
2 / Beats : You probably already know these are awesome. But I’m thinking they would be an awesome big item for pre-teens and teens.
3 / Gold Initial Stud Earrings : I love these and I think my almost teenage girl would love them too. I mean, any aged girl would these!
4 / Osmo : This new device is so cool. It turns the iPad into hands on play. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of my kids zoning out on Apps all the time..
5 / Bear Booties : For the baby in your life. Rawwwr.
6 / Longboard : Both my boys and girl want these. I’m thinking Christmas is the right time to get them on.
8 / Foodie Play Kitchen Sink : I’ll never forget my first kitchen set. If it was a cool as this then I’m sure we would have kept it through the years. I just love the yellow and the mid-century legs.
9 / Teeter Totter by The Palmoa : Mine are a little too old for this, but if they weren’t….I’d be all over this. The design is fabulous and it would give us hours of indoor play during long winter days.
10 / Toy Mail : Have you seen this? It’s a voice message device for your little ones. You can send them a message via your iOS device and they can send messages back through this little critter. I’m not for little ones having phones, but this is sweet.
What are your getting your kid’s this year? And, what are you kid’s asking for? One of mine is asking for a human size hamster ball?!
For giving to others, we are la la loving Comfy Critters (if you purchase in December and use code: BUY1GIVE1 then a Comfy Critter will also be donated to a room at the Atlanta Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital).
