Gifts for the Family
Do you ever find yourself stuck when it comes to finding gifts for the whole family to enjoy together? Or, even finding something that fits a need the entire family has? Yeah, so do I. Whether the difference is mainly age, or even just personality, it really can feel almost impossible. We have a round up of items that we think fit that tall order perfectly!
A. Hape Toys Rainbow Bowl: Bowling is a great game to get everyone involved in! Set up the pins in different obstacles around the house to keep older kids engaged, and even encourage the kids to find their own ways to make the game more interesting and fun for everyone!
B. Crane USA Humidifier: It may not be a toy, but a good humidifier can help quite a bit in flu and cold season. No one wants to spend the holidays down and out with a nasty cold, so anything that helps you get better faster is a must in my book!
C. Rettel Letter Boards: Okay, so this might be a little bit more for mom than the kids BUT, you can have them join in on the fun too! Plan on taking the annual picture by the Christmas tree, or celebrating multiple family birthdays in the year? I thought so! Have the kids help pick what to put on the board for the pictures, and they might just groan a little less about being the subject in front of the camera!
D. Fat Brain Toys Squigz: These little things are so awesome! Use them to foster some creative imagination for everyone in the family. Be careful, mom and dad might become just as obsessed and entertained as the kids!
E. Saranoni XL Blanket: You might be thinking, a blanket? I promise you that the second you feel the Saranoni you won't be questioning me anymore. These things are soft, soft, SOFT!!! I bought one for my baby and my husband asked for one in his size. So, if dad wants one, you know it will be approved by everyone. Family movie nights will never be cozier!
F. Plan Toys Mini Golf: Another great little game to have around for quick impromptu family play time. These things are SO handy in the cold winter season when being stuck indoors becomes more frequent!
G. Petal Lane Magnet Board: Functional decor is like a double bonus in my book. Two uses in one item just makes it that much sweeter! All of the Petal Lane boards are beautiful. Plus, they can work in so many places in your home to display little art projects, reminders, and precious photos!
H. Ruggish Co. Play Rug: A pretty rug on one side, and a darling play mat on the other? If I hadn't seen it myself I wouldn't think it was really a product you can buy. But, it is! The cherry on top? It is completely stain and waterproof!
I. Peek-A-Doodle-Doo: The perfect first board game for a young family! Your kids will love peeking under chickens to find eggs, and getting to experience the joy of winning (annnd losing to their siblings, but that just comes with the territory, right?)!
J. And Then...Story Starter Book: Ohhhh, I just love this book! It is the perfect way to spark and encourage imagination together! Simply read a story starter card and then take it into your own reigns when you see "And Then..."!
Doesn't family fun really make the holidays that much sweeter?! We know with kids around that it isn't always perfectly orchestrated and magical in every moment, but together is the best place to be! Hopefully these things help make a few more of those moments turn into lasting memories!
