It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
I’ve always loved Christmas time for all the twinkling lights, season greetings, and family traditions. It feels like the time approaches faster every year. And every year I wonder what to get the people in my life for the holidays.
Honestly, they don’t need much so I thought I would create some minimalist gift guides for inspiration as well.
For my son (age 4) I thought some educational toys like puzzles and building blocks. Books to change out his bookshelf and his favorite character currently with Paw Patrol. A big-ticket item that made its way on both my guides would a four-wheeler built for two.
For my daughter (age 7) I found more items for activities outside since she loves exploring the yards plants and animals. Grab a sensory table from Ikea for kinetic sand fun and don’t forget the kneepads and helmet for skateboarding.
Need a guide for your husband/significant other? Sometimes less is more with a nice button down or a shaving kit. But if they’re a gamer you can’t go wrong with a yearlong subscription or gift card for their favorite gaming system.
And lastly, don’t forget yourself. Selfcare is always important for someone on the go. I find the journaling and making list really helps me. What also helps are movie marathons so grabbing a new throw and pillow to curl up on the couch in style is a must.
P.S. if you are still on the lookout for matching pjs for the family or just the kiddos check out these spots as well.
Let me know if these helped in the comments or any items that are must haves on your list this year too.
