GIFT GUIDE FOR MINIS

      Ah the gift guide for minis is one of my absolute favorite gift guides to curate! I like to stick to the rules of “something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read” This helps keep our gift giving for the minis in line with our “less is more” mindset. The babes get one or two from each category and if there is excess, we put it in the closet to pull out for a rainy day!

      One family tradition we’ve started with the kids is that they get to open one package on Christmas Eve. This usually takes care of part of the “something to wear and something to read” category. We gift them pajamas to wear to bed that night and a new special book to read by the tree! I can’t wait until they catch on to the tradition and can look forward to it!

      GIFT GUIDE MINI | FOR HER

      SOMETHING THEY WANT:

      This mermaid doll is so cute! Evie has been obsessed with mythical things lately so this would be perfect for her!

      Speaking of mythical things… dressing up has really been big in our house so this unicorn headband and this adorable dress up set are so cute!

      These blocks are perfect for quiet time play and for mixing in with other magnetic toys. The babes play with these constantly.

      Ev loves playing alongside me when I’m working in the studio. This is such a cute idea for a “computer” without the technology tied to it!

      SOMETHING THEY NEED :

      Evie broke her helmet a few weeks ago so I’ll be placing this under the tree for her!

      She’s also ready to upgrade from her balance bike to a big girl bike so her one big gift from Santa is a new bike! And to go with her new bike… this little basket and this adorable kitty bell !

      SOMETHING TO WEAR:

      These pajamas are so affordable and are the softest thing ever! They are really stretchy too so will last a while as your little one grows!

      SOMETHING TO READ:

      This book set is so cute! Ev has a few of these super inspiring female character books already and loves them! This will be the perfect addition to her collection!

      GIFT GUIDE MINI | FOR HIM

      SOMETHING THEY WANT:

      Easton has been so into musical toys lately! This little guitar is right up his alley!

      Outside play is a big thing in our home, especially since our weather permits for it year round! This is so cute and will provide so much fun! And this swing for our tree to add to our “nature playground”!

      I love toys that spark imagination and I can see this balance board being used for all sorts of goodness! Think car ramp, rocking chair, baby bed… endless possibilities!

      This is such a cute alternative to a classic doll house! Easton has been big into figurines and pretend play with them!

      SOMETHING THEY NEED :

      So one could argue this isn’t a ‘need’ but in our house, quiet time and separate play are definitely a necessity and having toys that challenge minds but are also quiet is very important! This set provides at least an hour of good quality quiet time! This train set combines dinos and trains! And the last quiet time toy we’re going to pick up is this table top easel!

      Santa will also be bringing Easton a new bike! We actually picked up this same bike but second hand and have been keeping it in the studio until Santa can deliver the “parts” for it. Haha… the lies we tell our children!

      SOMETHING TO WEAR:

      These same pajamas we got for Evie… they make a cute navy and army green color without the ruffle trim for boys! They are so affordable and are the softest thing ever! They are really stretchy too so will last a while as your little one grows!

      SOMETHING TO READ:

      Easton loves animals and dinosaurs. This book will be his new favorite!
