Kissy Kissy: We swooned when we learned that the iconic Children’s brand Kissy Kissy extended their incredibly soft jammie line to kids!  Your kids will never want to take them off!

SIGG: We continue to purchase SIGG water bottles every year because of their durability, functionality, and safe materials. Ask Santa to help replace the bottles lost in the school-shuffle with a new bottle filled with a tasty beverage on Christmas morning.

Redbubble: We adore the artistic selection created by Redbubble’s  independent designers.  While the kids are enjoying morning juice, gift the adults a new mug filled with great coffee or spiked eggnog. 🙂

Holiday gifts for HerJulie Brown:  If you’d like to wow her with that perfect frock.  Julie Brown is your girl! We think that the Harmony dress is absolute perfection and if she’s into twinning with her mini mini – Julie Brown offers pint sized mommy-and-me matching collections as well.

Hydropeptide: We’ve been lucky enough to sample several skin care products from the Hydropeptide line for well over a year now and are officially obsessed.  You can’t go wrong with the anti wrinkle polish and plump peel or the purifying mask.

Li’l Woodzeez: Woodland creatures are all the rage.  How cute is this Family Treehouse Playset and Owl Family from Target?  We love the affordable pricing and creative play options.

Little Live Pets Bird Cage: Our kids have a hankering for pets of their own, and the fun Little Live Pets Bird Cage toy comes with a special bird that responds to your child’s touch!  Your kiddo will get a kick out of recoding their own voice and having the bird repeat it back!

Downtown Bookworks: We adore the creative selection of children’s books from NYC based Downtown Bookworks. With interesting book bonuses that include things like a bug in resin – their book collection will certainly keep your gift recipient engaged.

Beados:  Kids will love watching Beados magically transform together with water.  And the Beados Quick Dry Design Station provides a designated spot to make, spray and dry fun Beados designs!  We like the quick dry fan, special bead pod storage, design tray, scoop pen and 500 Beados included in the design station.

Crayola Virtual Design Pro: Quality art supplies are a must for children, and the Crayola Virtual Design Pro set gives kids their own sophisticated set of supplies.  The great Virtual Design Pro sets allow kids to decorate their own car or clothing designs and watch them come to life in the included app!

Our Generation: Realistic, large dolls are all the rage right now.  The amazing Our Generation collection from Target offers a great variety of dolls and accessories for reasonable and affordable prices.

family holiday giftsMakey Makey: Makey Makey is a revolutionary kit that will get the entire family excited about STEM and engineering.  It allows you to create objects into a game controller or computer key. We’ve had great fun making play-doh and banana drums. Best of all, the parents will enjoy it as much as the children!
