Best Holiday Gifts for Kids

Hello, friends!

Are you stuffed from all of that delicious Thanksgiving food still? I am so excited about today’s post because it gave me an excuse to do some online browsing and figure out what I’m going to get the boys this Christmas. Every year we release Holiday Gift Guides for you to shop, but this year we did it a little differently – we requested samples from some of the retailers and we’re donating the items to a local charity! Pretty cool, right?

So while you shop, know that a lot of time and thought went into selecting each one of these special items. I hope you love this list as much as we do and find something special on it for someone you love.
