Christmas is about togetherness, celebration, lights, trees, santa and gifts for kids! Your little ones, your nieces, nephews, friend’s children and let’s not forget those kids who might otherwise not get presents this year – christmas is truly about the children. Every year their is a hot new Elmo, game system or elsa doll and this year is no different. Figuring out the best gifts for kids isn’t actually that hard because they’ll be the first ones to tell you (and santa and anyone else who asks). I am a sucker for watching my boy tear open a present and get stuck into something new and exciting. He’s just now at an age where he’s appreciating toys and the joy that they bring. The key is a little bit at a time. Too much to quick is overwhelming and can devalue the great gifts that you and everyone else has showered your little ones with… Try to spread gifts over a couple of days and let him properly appreciate them! Check you some of my favorite gifts for kids while I try and figure out what to get my little guys (besides his favorite pocoyo and thomas the train toys).
So, my son just turned 2 last week and it’s amazing how much he’s managed to accumulate in that short span of time that has meant an immediate need for us to find more storage solutions. Great toy boxes for him that are both cute and functional for his room but also more storage for our living space that can hide his latest acquisitions while also serving our needs and personal (adult) taste. More storage doesn’t have to mean big ugly boxes or plastic bins – there are so many incredibly fun and surprisingly elegant options that are more furniture and room accents than functional eye sores… Check out some more storage solutions for our little one’s room and some chic options for our big people rooms!

Shopping for kids is one of my greatest pleasures. It takes me back to the joy of being a little girl, going to the toy store, the magic of opening a gift and the true pleasure of make believe. I wanted to do an ultimate gift guide for kids because there is just SO much out there it can be overwhelming. There is everything from learning toys, to pretend play toys, riding toys, talking stuffed animals to arts and crafts. Simply everything under the sun – toys that we enjoyed as kids which have been improved upon in ways that make me want to keep these things to play with myself! So, if you are stuck with what to get your little one, or your nieces, nephews or friend’s children – check out my gift guide for kids to find the best things out there to keep the little ones entertained while they build their imagination…
