Unwinding gifts: Self-care

Gifts for the little ones: Baby & children

Arguably the most fun group to shop for, children are also the most fun to watch opening their gifts. Some of these gifts are to make their parents’ lives easier, some to increase the joy (and noise) in the house.

For when it’s time to play: Mastermind Toys Gift Finder

Children are by far the ones most excited about the prospect of getting gifts. It makes sense—toys and games are so much more fun than socks.

Instead of choosing a single toy from Mastermind, we’re linking to their helpful gift finder. From there, you can narrow it down by age, type of toy, gender, and budget.

Whoever the lucky (and super ecstatic) recipient of your gift is will be happily surprised when they tear off all the wrapping paper.

For dads that are ready for anything: Tactical Baby Gear Carrier Bundle

Tactical Baby Gear is all about being ready for any messy situation so that you can approach them like a pro.

This baby carrier and fanny pack bundle keeps everything in its right place—baby on the chest, all the essentials at the belly, hands completely free for managing everything else.

For stylishly protecting those little footsies: BirdRock Baby

Teeny tiny, soft, and chubby, a baby’s foot is constantly at risk of being eaten up by zealous aunts, uncles, grandparents, and family friends. So, you need to keep them protected.

BirdRock Baby’s Waves Bundle is the perfect gift to encase those delicate footsies stylishly. You can choose sizing for each, so as they grow, they’ll always have ocean-themed footwear.

Gifts that’ll have them howling: Petcare

Pets are the best—cuddly mobile afghans that need your care to survive. And they need gifts like anyone else (even if they have no idea what day of the year it is). Here are some pet gifts that’ll have them wagging.
