So lets talk Christmas!!! My favorite holiday of the year!!!
I am so excited to get this up for you guys just because I’ve always dreamt of having a little girl of my own someday and purchasing all these cute little girly things and such! I did a Holiday Gift Guide a few years back for Angelo and had so much fun doing it.
I’m going to start off with my picks for Scarlett and then follow on to my big boy Angelo!
This is the cutest thing ever! I always wanted a rocker for Angelo when he was little but never got around to purchasing him one. This one is from Pottery Barn kids and its a cute little bunny. I’ve been obsessed with bunnies, piglets, swans, and flamingos lately so this was love!
Angelo lovedddd this as a kid and he still plays with it himself at the age of 4 1/2! It was only right this were added to Scarlett’s picks. She loves this wooden activity cube. It keeps her entertained for quite sometime.
I knew I wanted to get Scarlett a baby doll for Christmas. I want her to have a collection of different ethnicities. We already opened this up only because her grandmother ended up purchasing her this one for her birthday because it reminded her of Scarlett haha. Its probably the little brunette hair with the side clip because thats how I usually keep her hair out of her face. This was a hit she carries and feeds her baby doll all on her own all the time. I plan on getting her other dollies with different ethnicities to complete her collection.
This was on the top of my list and I’m so happy I decided to step into Toys R Us on Black Friday and find this gem! It’s so perfect and close up so easily. It already comes assembled you just have to click in a few pieces and you’re good to go! It is travel friendly and comes with its own little mesh bag to pack it away and stroll it to your car. This is great for walks, park dates, and even for the malls.
This kitchen has been the most popular play kitchen for kids since forever. It is the perfect size and comes in various colors. We are getting Scarlett the white colored one just because the kids share a play nook area and its perfect for the both of them. I plan on decorating this kitchen with little wooden baskets and play kitchen appliances. Kidkraft is one of my favorite toy brands. Their stuff is mainly wooden toys and the quality is amazing!
This was a mist for me for this little babe! She discovered my vanity drawers filled with makeup that I have. I have over 6 drawers tall filled with makeup and she goes through every. single. one. everyday! She lost a couple lipliners, lord knows where they are and just recently she watched me put lipgloss on and I put a bit on her lips what was that for now she wants to open all my lip products haha. I just can’t she’s such a girly girl. I don’t mind because I waited for these moments all my life! I was on the hunt for a makeup set; wooden of course and big enough to not be much of a choking hazard because I know these types of toys are meant for older little girls. I’ll be watching her while she plays with them so I wasn’t worried when I found this set. I’m going to keep it close to my vanity drawers and probably empty one out and make it hers with these wooden makeup toys. They are super cute and I’m sure any little girl would love this set!
This had been a favorite for a while now. It is the cutest little picnic basket set with platters of food and everything else you would need for a picnic. It teaches colors and shapes. She can play hours with this and even Angelo likes to play along with her.
This gift was a spare of the moment gift. We walked into Toys r Us on Black Friday and snagged this for just $40! Last year Angelo broke the screen to his ipad he’s had since he was about 2 years old. I honestly didn’t mind fixing it because he was becoming a bit addicted to it so we left it that way. His grandparents had bought him one of these when that happened just to have for him when he goes over to their house. He loves it! It has educational apps and also can be used with internet and so forth. I love the parental mode on it. I can literally set it up to shut off after an hour of use if I wanted to. For $40 it was a steal and my husband couldn’t wait till Christmas to give it to him so he’s already using it haha. Toys R Us actually has it on sale right now for $50!

This year I want to stock Angelo up with lots of boardgames. He’s asked for this one for quite sometime and enjoys playing it during therapy sessions. He’s going to be so excited to have one of his own at home.
Angelo’s fascinated with Science and outer space. This seemed like a cool kit because I also plan on getting him a telescope to keep in his room since he has a big wide open window.
Another science kit I know he will enjoy! These are all great because they teach in the process of playing! I linked this one from Michaels because you can use a 50% off coupon online!
This is something he’s wanted for awhile but I could never bare to spend $80+ on it. It’s Christmas so why not I guess haha. Its basically almost as tall as him and its batman. He loves batman at the moment so I know he’ll be excited upon receiving this.
Mentioned these in my instastories a few weeks ago. They are great quality figurines with realistic features from each animal. Angelo has enjoyed pretend playing with these. He is obsessed with sea animals so he was super excited to get these. They are handcrafted by hand coming from a family owned business. They offer plenty of other animals a long with foods etc. You can check them out at www.safariltd.com for their list of figurines.
Angelo’s list is pretty short because this kid has so many toys! We still aren’t finished with his list, but we might keep it short. I’ll be adding to it throughout the week so keep checking in!
I hope I’ve helped some of you with our Holiday Gift Guide this year for a toddler and kid.
