giftgivingguide

I have the luck of having my birthday in November, followed by M’s birthday a few weeks before Christmas, then Christmas. So our birthday/Christmas wish-listing and shopping starts early.

Like many parents, we try to follow The Four Gift Rule with the kids.

Along with this, we spend the holidays (and throughout the year), finding creative ways to give back… but that’s for another blog post.

Take a peak at my holiday gift giving guide below.

FOR THE TECH MOM

Apple Watch with the Antique White Sport Band – $349.00

I realize I’m Captain Obvious here, but this watch is legit. With the latest upgrades, it keeps track of how much you move – and hopefully gets you moving more too.

 

FOR THE TIRED MOM (OR DAD)

A Deep Tissue Massage – $60-$200

Let’s be honest. A massage is a great gift for anyone, at any time. Find a great massage therapist in your area and go for it.

These travel flats fold up nicely in your purse or bag, and will keep your feet happy when heading from the airport to meetings or around town. The come in a variety of colors too.

 

FOR THE KIDS

Joyfolie Emerson Boots – $59.99

Joyfolie has a great selection for beautiful clothes, boots, shoes and accessories for little girls. It’s sugar and spice and everything nice.

I tend to pick these up in the airport when I’m traveling, but they are available at any bookstore. The kids love Goodnight Books. They have them for states, major cities, mom and dad, etc. They are perfect for your toddler or preschooler.

5 things I like less than sleep

Teething.

It’s happening in our household. And last night, M was up. All. Night.

In honor of the fact that I can barely put a sentence together, I’d like to offer you five things I like less than sleep (the today version. Because it will be different after a good night’s sleep or two.)

P.S. I’ve been hitting caffeine for hours by now.

1. My cellphone

During the day, I may be glued to it. But today, I’d trade it in for sleep – without a doubt.

2. Chocolate

Who doesn’t love chocolate? After all it’s good for your heart. Usually, I’m like this:

3. A Good Chick-Flick

Chick flicks get a bad rap. They are heart-warming. They are funny. They would never happen in real life. And even now, I like them less than sleep.

4. Wine

One glass of wine would put me into a coma right now. Although, maybe that’s not a bad thing.
