I am a very proud auntie to an amazing crew of kiddos, ranging in age from 11 years old to 6 months. I love shopping for them all year round, but especially at the holidays.
If you have some special little ones on your list this year, today's guide is for you!
Let's begin with the cutest thing I ever did see, custom sunglasses. These come in 12 different colors and you can personalize them with a name (or nickname) that is up to 12 characters long.
For the colder temperatures, these "pita pocket" mittens from Patagonia are ideal for making snowmen and snow angels. They're available in four colors and size newborn all the way up to 5T.
I'm a sucker for a bear hoodie. I just gave one to my niece. This extra cozy one is from North Face.
Is there anything more adorable than a child in a bath robe? No, there is not. Gift this striped robe to a kid who understands the joy of watching a movie on the couch on Saturday morning.
Moving into the toy category, I thought this giraffe-themed gift set was just too cute. A onesie, a wubba nub and a small chew toy.
For the kid who loves dinosaurs, this hide & play set will bring hours and hours of fun.
I love giving art supplies. Can you picture these giant crayons in a small, chubby hand? Bonus: these are made from natural beeswax.
My nephew is super into gardening (his dad has a very green thumb) so I am always on the look out for garden or plant-themed gifts. This checkers set is awesome. I predict the adults will be jealous!
For the kid who can't get enough construction, wow them with this brightly colored sweatshirt.
Last but not least, for the tween who is starting to head out solo on sleepovers, surprise them with this backpack that unfolds out into a sleeping bag. I would have flipped for this in middle school!
