Gone are the days where a cute little outfit from Baby Gap or a Monopoly game would suffice. Nope. Now we've got iPads, 3S and dolls so pretty it just breaks my heart they all end up naked, headless and under the bed. But, the holidays are really about children and Santa and all that good stuff. It's just that popcorn on a string has lost it's Rockwellian luster, to be replaced by the good, the bad and the dollar store toys. I asked around and took a look at a lot of items and this is what I really liked. I'd love to know what you really like too..
Now I'd love to chat some more, but I really must get back to baking my homemade cookies and tarts and bundt cakes!
C'mon, a girl can dream, can't she?
Happy Shopping! And remember, the best gifts are the ones that are nicer and more tricked out than all the other kid's!
