Now, while I personally love everything in all of my gift guides I have to admit there are just some things that really can’t fit into just one category. These are the gifts that everyone in the family can have fun using or enjoy in some way. You know when you look at something and just say AHA. You don’t have to worry in the youngest little will be able to play or if the oldest little will get bored? Yup, these are those gifts.
Chocolate Egg Surprise Maker – I first saw this at Blogger Bash’s Sweet Suite and I got excited thinking about the possibilities. I know I’m not the only parent that has sat through HOURS of chocolate egg surprise videos on YouTube. Now our littles can make their own. Or better yet, we can make our own. Think of the money we can save by making our own surprise eggs. My first idea was to use this to create a DIY advent calendar but then I realized that I wouldn’t complete it because it would mean not only planning out the 25 small items to include but also getting more supplies and finding time to create the finished product. I really hope someone gets this and does their own 25 eggs so I can watch and say, “I should do that.” Plus, JustaBXgirl saw this when it arrived so there was no way she was letting me play with it by myself!
Playbrites – This is one of those gifts you would think is just for little littles. Nope, I’m here to tell you it is a hit with everyone. We have the unicorn one. JustaBXgirl isn’t a fan of going to bed in the dark. I turn the light off and she has a fit, even if I leave the door open. She had been asking for a nightlight for a while but most plug into the outlet and in our bedroom, the outlet is covered so that doesn’t work. This is a great option. It is not too bright so it doesn’t keep them awake and it turns itself off in 20 minutes. Why is it for everyone you ask? This nightlight has a play factor to it. It becomes a magical friend during the day. It comes in 6 options so there is a magical friend for everyone. When your little outgrows the desire for a night light they will still enjoy carrying this around. Keep reading for your chance to win one!
Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker – In case you didn’t know JustaBXgirl loves unicorns. When she saw the Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker she laughed out loud. If you’ve ever heard her laugh then you know it comes straight from her belly. It is a beautiful sound and fills me with joy. Anyway, I was a little skeptical about this since it looks like the Unicorn is pooping the swirl but let me tell you littles LOVE this. I mean, who doesn’t love eating frosting? This is great for littles that like to create and bake. The Unicone can be used with real frosting too in case your little isn’t in the mood to mix the provided contents. And this is just so cute. we’re actually planning to use it as part of the decor at JustaBXgirl’s nirthday party in a few months. How much fun will a Unicone Swirl station be???
K’nex – I’m cheating here a little bit. K’nex makes something for everyone on your list and that is why they made my For Everyone gift guide. This is one of those brands you know and trust. While everyone might not be able to build with each of their kits (please watch little littles around things with small pieces) they have a set to make everyone happy. We have sets for smaller littles and bigger littles and I can tell you they provide this mama with some quiet time as JustaBXgirl and her cousins are busy building. I love watching their creativity come to life.
Chalk of the Town – I just love this brand. I learned about them a few months ago. I think it was at NY Now and I’ve been a HUGE fan ever since. Not only is this company run by a mom that rocks but she has provided a way to mix creativity, fashion and play. I’m sure you’ve seen JustaBXgirl rocking her shirt from the brand and it never looks the same way twice. This shirt is perfect for an event, a game, a family outing or because it is a Tuesday. You can get all of your littles the same color shirt and it will still be unique based on how they decide to express themselves! And now you can use the code DRAWWEAR on the Chalk Of The Town website to get 20% off of any purchases over $20 until 12/1/17.
