Know What Mom Really Wants For Christmas This Year? A Gift From the Heart.

In: Gift Guides, Shop
Products in gift guide

When we were growing up, every time we kids asked our mom what she wanted for Christmas, her standard reply was, “Make me something,” or “Just a photo of you.” I remember rolling my eyes and wondering what on earth was wrong with her, because how boring was it she wanted a gift that reminded her of us when she could ask for anything?! Clearly she didn’t understand how capable the big jolly red guy at the North Pole was. But now, 20-something years and three kids later, I get it. To my mom, it was never about the macaroni...

What’s Old is New Again: Classic Toys From Your Childhood Your Kids Will Love

In: Gift Guides, Products We Love
girl holding Potato Head toys

Watching my sons circle toys in a catalog this past weekend, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit nostalgic as I remembered sitting at my grandma’s counter doing the very same thing as a kid. I recognized that excited twinkle in their eyes as their markers went crazy over the page.  But later, as I peeked over their choices, I couldn’t help but feel a teeny bit disappointed at the unfamiliar gadgets scattered across the pages. Where was Mr. Potato Head? How will my kids ever make important life decisions without a trusty Magic 8 Ball? Will they never...

Boy with tablet under the tree

Dear family, What I’m about to say comes from a place of absolute love and appreciation, with a smidge of overwhelmed-mama desperation thrown in. The thing is . . . we have a lot of toys.  I know you know this.  You step over them when you come to visit. You see them sprawled across our wreck of a playroom. You push them aside so you can sit on our couch. They. Are. Everywhere. It doesn’t seem to matter how often I sort, organize, and donate my way through the them; the toys just keep piling up. And to be...

Start a New Family Tradition: The 12 Nights of Christmas Books

In: Gift Guides, Products We Love, Shop

I’m a sucker for all things sentimental, so it’s no surprise that when my husband and I decided to start our family, we wasted no time creating traditions for every occasion.  Pizza and a movie on Friday nights. Moonlit sledding on New Year’s Eve. Chocolate donuts for birthday breakfasts. And on and on and on. Of all the traditions our family holds dear, our favorite of all might just be the one we affectionately refer to as The 12 Nights of Christmas Books.   It goes like this: On the morning of December 13th, a mini-Christmas tree magically appears in...
