The items in this list were chosen by me because they are brands I trust and products I’m interested in or have owned. Thank you to the companies for providing samples for the purpose of this post.
My gift guide evolves each year as my children grow, mostly because I share toys or brands that are relevant to how old my children are. This is what I know at this point in time.
I love finding gifts for my children and family. I especially love gifting items they didn’t ask for but know they’ll enjoy. That’s the inspiration behind this year’s guide.
