First and foremost I need to tell you that I am an “experience” kind of gift giver. I know that memories made are guaranteed to last longer and mean more than any one thing. That being said, I also LOVE playing Santa, and have incredibly fond memories of birthdays and Christmases filled with beautifully wrapped gifts. Needless to say, I can’t help myself from indulging in a bit of holiday shopping.
This year, with the news of all the holiday shipping delays I am getting a head start. I’m also continuing to try to shop small and locally. If a Mary Bea Photo session isn’t on the list this year, here’s a few more ideas for you!
This holiday season, there are plenty of toys that’ll help kids explore their interests, get in touch with their creative sides, and help them sharpen their skills, all while having loads of fun. For artistic types, there’s art they can display in their rooms. For influencer style, there are beautiful baby toys that will help new parents create “content” that shows off their ability to curate only the most stylish things. And for the Montessori fans, all play is learning, since it helps them get their imaginations working and their bodies moving.
With all that in mind, here are my favorite gifts for 2021:
I’d love to see your favorite gifts. Leave me a comment, or tag me on social and tell me about ’em.
