Book Gift Ideas
I always have a hard time, especially with nieces and nephews. I have a couple “go-to” items if they don’t’ have any specific request and books are one of them. Books are one of those items that can always be useful and they’ll be able to get something out of it.
Laugh Out Loud Jokes For Kids– Kids LOVE jokes, and joke books that have jokes they can share. It’s a great way to encourage and get kids to read more without it feeling like a chore to them.
Have You Filled Your Bucket Today? This book is a great way to tch kids about hapinesss.
The Crippled Lamb– This is an incredible Christmas story (or anytime really). I cry every time I read it. It’s the story of Joshua, the crippled lamb who often wondered why he was different and how he found his purpose in a very important moment. It’s a children’s book, but honestly I recommend it for kids or even those older in your life that are maybe struggling with their purpose.
The Monster at the end of this Book– An adorable book about an adorable monster named Grover. He teaches that sometimes was sounds fearful, really isn’t. My kids absolutely love this book!
The Story of Ferdinand– I always think of the movie “The Blind Side” when I see this book. Ferdinand wanted to be who he was, and not necessarily what people expected him to be. A very valuable lesson for us all.
There’s a Bear on my Chair– this is another book that my kids love. Little Miss B often reads it to her little brother on the way home during the week.
If You Give A Mouse A Cookie– Want to know what happens? Check out this book! There’s also a TV series which is adorable, as well as other books in the series. I wasn’t sure at first, but after reading it with the kids it’s become a quick favorite!
Dress-up Clothes- Imagination and Play
Imagination and play are a big part of childhood. Little Adventures offers a variety of dress-up outfits for kids. The best part? They are washable! Yes… they won’t fall apart when you wash them! I cannot tell you how many times I’ve bought dress up clothes that have fallen apart in the first wash.
These are some of my favorites!

Scooters! For The Kid On The Go!
Globber Scooters offer scooters with 3 wheels which provide extra stability for kids just learning how to ride. They use a lean-to-steer method which helps kids learn how to balance and turn, before graduating to a 2 wheel scooter. The 3 wheel set up of the scooters is one of the biggest differences in this scooter and others. From Globbers website- “Help your child learn to maneuver the Globber 3 Wheel Fixed Scooter easily by activating the Patented Secure Direction Button Lock on the front of the deck, which ensures the scooter moves in a straight line. Ball bearings offer front wheel pivot supports to simplify assisted steering, and the low deck height delivers a stable ride. The X-Cross deck design improves turning performance and adds strength to the steel-plate reinforced deck. Your child can roll along smoothly on the high-rebound PU wheels with ABEC-5 bearings, and he or she can hang on tightly to the dual-injection grips. The long rear brake covers the entire back tire for reliable stops.”
Some of my favorites
Big Wheel Bike
Speaking of wheels…. I can’t NOT mention this classic-
Here are some of our favorite Educational Toys! They are fun, and allow kids to be creative and learn all while enjoying them!
Legos Kids love legos! They are a a fun way for kids to learn about organizing, planning, and construction. They help kids with lateral thinking, as well as seeing things three dimensionally. Yes, they are a pain if you step on a lego, but there are a lot of educational benefits to them as well!
Dinosaur Toys that take apart with Tools This set of 6 toys improves coordination and problem-solving skills! If the kid in your life is anything like my 3-year-old they’ll love being able to use tools to take apart dinosaurs not even knowing that they are learning great skills in the process!
Wellie Wishers by American Girl Dolls The Wellie Wisher series teaches young girls about friendships, empathy, expressing emotion and enjoying the outdoors. There are also great books to go along with them such as Camille’s Mermaid Adventure.
Illuminate World Globe This globe has a built-in LED for night viewing also! This is a great way to teach kids about geography and help them understand the world.
