The Ultimate Holiday Shopping Guide…

Hi! I can’t believe it’s already time for this post! While most of our kiddos Christmas Shopping is done I wanted to share some things that I bought and some great sales I’ve found! Black Friday is coming and it can be the best time to grab some of your big ticket items!
I’m sharing everything from infant to home shopping guides. Most of the items I’m sharing are ones that we have/had or ones that I’ve read the reviews on! We have 3 children so needless to say we have a lot of toys around the house and I wanted to share some of my favorites along with my own holiday wish list! So lets begin!


If you’re looking for a new car seat now is a great time to buy! This Graco car seat is on sale big time! We have used the Graco brand for all of our car seats with no complaints! If you’re looking for a great big play mat the one above got sooo much use! Having twins… it was helpful for tummy time that both of them could fit on! I also shared my favorite baby soap along with baby monitor brand. I know there are so many fancy monitors now days. I’ve found that I just want to be able to see and hear them and this brand is practical and checks the boxes for our needs!


So many fun toys! While some play music and light up… most of these encourage imaginative play! The teacher in me is a huge fan of this! The horse glider can also be turned into a rocker. We used it both ways. We’re excited to see our sons reaction when he gets the race car set! He’s only two and is ALL boy so I’m sure he’ll love it!

Kids Toys…

SALE ALERT!! You don’t want to miss this S.A.L.E! The last day of buy one toy get one 50% off is today, but I’m hoping Target will extend it. All of the toys above are Melissa & Doug. If you’re looking for toys that are durable then you’re in the right place! Our kids have some version of ALL of these, but the fishing one, which will be put on a list for the future. The card board blocks are played with daily and the wooden ones are on their Christmas List. The twins love the cleaning supplies!

For the Home…

We have almost all of the items above. We love our Keurig and I’m hoping to snag one of the single serve ones for my classroom! One less thing to have to take out the door for the morning shuffle to daycare and school would be A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! Our Dyson Vacuum and Shark Steamer have to be two of my favorite household items. We’ve had both of them for 7 years and are still on the originals. They will last, if you take care of them!



Hand Foaming Soap // Travel Size Perfume // Tarte Lip Color // Urban Decay Gift Set // Buxom Lip Balm // Shea Moisture Lotion // MAC Gift Set Face Razors // LANEIGE Lip Mask // Scents for the Seasons Perfume

I can’t say enough good things about all of the beauty products I’ve shared above! They’re all brands I’ve been using for years. I’ve always been a huge lip balm kinda gal’ and you can’t go wrong with the two I shared above. I use the lip mask multiple times through out the day and never go to bed without it. One of my most favorite perfumes is Daisy by Marc Jacobs so I was so excited when I saw a travel version. I’m a huge fan of travel sizes when trying out new products, especially when it comes to perfume because they’re so expensive! I couldn’t make a gift guide without adding one of my favorite lotions! This foaming hand soap is found in every bathroom in our house! Several of these would make for great stocking stuffers too!

Last, but not least a women’s gift guide! This Wish List is jam packed with gifts that have raving reviews and the prices are on point!! I always love to get things that I don’t personally enjoy spending money on… like bath towels and that laundry soap dispenser! Who knew something like that existed!! I love to get pedicures, but since that’s been put to a hault the foot cream and filer will have to be the perfect duo! If you’re planning to do a lot of snuggling this winter… the leopard pants come in so many different color combinations and would be a perfect outfit paired with the cardigan.

That’s a wrap of some things that have been tried and true in our families household!

Do you have any traditions for buying for Christmas!?

    Love the play mat! It’s durable and getting put to use with another set of twins. It is washable and still looks brand new! #twinning
