Ever since I became "Aunt Mol" eight years ago, I am perpetually on the lookout for amazing kid stuff. Being around children at this time of year is truly the best. The lights, the magic, the promise of miracles - they are wide eyed about it all.
Today's gift list has ideas for kids of all ages. I had way too much fun searching for these items and had to reign myself in!
Let's start with this North Face fleece zip up. Have you ever seen anything so precious? The hood with the little ears just kills me.
This blue color is my favorite, but it also comes in beige and white.
Meri Meri, a brand I adore for their party decor, has released the sweetest advent calendar this year. Each day reveals a new hair accessory. For a kid who loves to dress up, this would be pure heaven!
Getting a toddler into the bath can be a battle. It would be a whole lot easier if they could look forward to awesome, glow-in-the-dark toys in the tub. From Uncommon Goods, these glowing bath time pals are a genius incentive. Each set comes with eight pieces and you can choose the colors.
Ok, prepare yourself for unparalleled cuteness. Warning: your heart might explode. Have you ever heard of a Cutetito? Cutetitos are stuffed animals wrapped inside burritos!
There are 12 different animals and each one has a "hot spot" (marked with a hot pepper) that you press to learn more about your new furry friend. I just can't get over these!
When it comes to pretend play, my favorite game is restaurant (no surprise there). Melissa & Doug's pizza counter has everything a kid needs to start running their own shop - a pizza oven, plenty of ingredients, a delivery box and cash for the register.
Once a child has reached the age where they can help you bake, this Williams Sonoma holiday pan is a must. This one pan includes four different shapes: presents, gingerbread men, wreaths and snowflakes.
Williams Sonoma also offers matching aprons. You can customize them with names (holiday-related or not). I like the red for holiday season, but they also come in blue.
When kids come inside from playing in the snow, make their hot cocoa time extra special with these cookie house mug buddies. These teeny tiny gingerbread houses are a festive garnish and 100% edible.
If you have a Harry Potter fan in your life, these Bertie Bott Beans are a fantastic stocking stuffer. They'd also be a great companion gift to one of the books in the series.
