15 Day Until Christmas: Wrap Those Gifts!

I love wrapping paper. I bought two rolls of it on clearance last year after Christmas, but there is just so much pretty paper I bought more this year as well. Whoops.

18 Days Until Christmas: A Gift for the Toddler

I’m becoming kind of a toy snob. I searched around quite a bit for an appropriate and safe toy for my adorable Godchild, Addison, who will be just shy of 1 years old come Christmas. I wanted to stay away from plastic and be as earth and baby friendly as possible.

I came across Dandelion’s Organic, Little House Shape Sorter.

Although I am not a huge fan of pastels, and I think that if they went with bright colors this could be better suited for both genders, I think this will be a great gift for Addison.

  • She can safely put any of these pieces into her mouth (which she does with everything anyways)
  • Machine washable
  • Different shapes for learning
  • and each shape has a unique property that should entertain her as well

Dandelion House Shape Sorter about to get wrapped for my Godchild!

You can purchase this toy from Dandelion’s site . I bought mine from Amazon.

50+ Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Women

Welcome! If you are a male, looking for gift ideas for the lady in your life, I hope this helps! And no matter what gifts you buy or make, WRAP THEM. It doesn’t have to be perfect and beautiful, but the extra effort really makes a difference! Think about what she likes to do in her free time, items she uses often, etc.

Ladies, any more ideas? Please share! Like I mentioned before, I love stocking gifts! It seems like it’s easier to do stockings for females because all that girly stuff is small and fits in the sock. Plus, guys are always harder to shop for; anyone else with me on that?
