If you are like me, you are still trying to figure out what to buy for the special people in your life. I hate to admit it but I am not a big christmas person. I despise shopping in malls and I am trying to reduce the amount of stuff in my home. I try really hard when I'm selecting gifts to find items that will last and have value for the people I am gifting.
With that in mind here is my holiday gift guide for the last minute shoppers
New or soon to be parents
Check out the Vija designs skin to skin shirt. This is a must have tool for the 4th trimester. Baby's love being close to mom and dad, while parents love having their hands free. These shirts fit true to size. If you are on the edge of a size I would recommend sizing down as they will stretch a bit with use.
The gift of education is always a great choice. A babywearing education session will take new parents through all the ins and outs of using their carriers and choosing a carrier. Its a great way to help a new parent out with out adding to the clutter.
Pip Squiz are fun little suckers that can be used as a teether, sensory toy or entertainment on the go.
The Zipaddee Zip is the perfect jammies for babies of all sizes. The innovative star shape provides baby comfort and security. As a bonus they will sleep deeper and longer so mom and dad and can enjoy a good nights rest too!
Toddlers and preschoolers
Mix or match vehicles will provide hours of fun. Kids will love creating all kids of unique vehicles to race and drive.
Playstixs are a super fun building stick. The unique design allows kids to build a variety of shapes and objects. Watch their imagination grow as they build. This is one toy that will not get old!
Give mom the gift she really wants. Pockets! the Huggaloops hip band is what every mom needs. She can add pockets to any pants. These are perfect for around the house or on the go.
The gift of time
We giving some toys to our son this year but we are also gifting swimming lessons, a zoo membership and a museum pass. Here are some great local experiences you can gift.
Western Development Museum. The WDM is a one of my son's favourite places to spend a chilly Saturday. We love to run up and down boomtown street and check out the trains.
Sign language classes. Last year we gifted level 1 classes to my niece. She loved and so did her parents! Little Hands and Me offers amazing classes here in Saskatoon. The gift of education and play is a gift that keeps giving.
