The Cutest Owl Rocker

Buying gifts for little kids is always so much fun because you have such a wide variety of things to choose from when picking out the perfect gift! Owls have definitely been the trend lately, and you can also tell that they have been moving over to be a trend in baby and kids items. I love owls for kids because they can be so many different colors, and they are also gender neutral depending on the color!

If you want to show up with the best gift for a little girl then you need to show up with this owl rocker! It seriously so cute! I love that the seat is a little tree stump with some leaves on it! So cleaver! I know this would be her favorite gift of the day if she opened this.

owl rockerThis is great for kids at that young age right before they are walking and also while they are walking. Kids at this age love to do things on their own and moving around is definitely one of them. This is definitely great for that because it is small enough they can climb on it by themselves, and even better it is safe. It is cushioned, and small enough that if they fall it wont hurt them.

You can find this at Zulily!

The Xbox One

xbox one

My children have been talking to me about the Xbox One. I was not sure what exactly it was then I saw a commercial and this game system is $500. Whoa! What the heck can it do that makes it so expensive, “everything” was my husbands answer. So I needed to find out more specifically. This is the brief description on the site.

Be amazed.

Welcome to a new generation of games and entertainment. Where games push the boundaries of realism. And television obeys your every command. Where listening to music while playing a game is a snap. And you can jump from TV to movies to music to a game in an instant. Where your experience is custom tailored to you. And the entertainment you love is all in one place. Welcome to the all-in-one, Xbox One.

I am sure this will a hot gift item this Christmas. It sounds amazing and I would even love one. I am betting they will sell out before Christmas. One thing I always complained about with out Wii is that is cannot play a DVD, I know it has the capability and it should just be made to do that. I want a simple looking set up for out entertainment center with as few boxes around as possible. I would be game to get an Xbox One if my husband is on board.



Mealtime Chalkboard Placemats

So I just added these Mealtime Chalkboard Placemats to the list of things I must have for my children. While I am cooking dinner I always like to have my kids helping me in the kitchen, whether that means prepping food or setting the table. Once dinner is ready and I am trying to serve it and get everyone gathered, it seems impossible. The kids are hungry and can’t sit still. With mealtime chalkboard placemats, they would have something to do to keep their busy hands from banging silverware together or putting their plates on their heads.


Mealtime chalkboard placemats are a great birthday gift for a child of age 3 and up. All of my three kids love to draw and color, this is the perfect birthday gift for them. This would also be a great gift for my son’s preschool teacher, she usually has a small class of anywhere from 4-8 children. This would make a great teacher gift that she could use for more kids to come. Great idea to keep your kids busy while waiting on their food!

Thomas & Friends: Preschool Steam ‘n Speed R/C Thomas

Most little boys love Thomas the Train and there are so many toys out there for this character. And once you start collecting them you just can not stop! But as with all things there are good products and bad products. If you are looking for a great Thomas the Train gift for that little one then you have to check out the Thomas & Friends: Preschool Steam ‘n Speed R/C Thomas.

It looks bigger than it is because of the toddler in the back of the picture but it is the perfect size for a child between 3-6. And the remote is very user friendly for those little hands and mind. The kids love it because of all the sounds and it even has smoke. And the parents love it because the smoke is cool to the touch and it will keep those little boys entertained and happy. And personally, I think it is so much better than watching TV.

Hot Wheels Big Air Jump Track Set

This Hot Wheels Big Air Jump Track Set is a perfect gift to get that little boy. If you have a child between the ages of 4 and 7…this is perfect. And the holidays are right around the corner too. Before you know it December will be here and wouldn’t it be nice if you were able to say that you were all done your shopping before the last minutes crowds go out to the stores.

Personally, I like shopping right now because it is before the crowds and you don’t get that horrible bill in January. You can space out the bills throughout the next few months. I have found that you don’t save anything spectacular if you wait for the “sales” too. In many cases the stores will inflate the prices so that it appears that they are having that great sale. You can get this at Amazon with the free shipping option too.
