Gift Guides For Kids

I originally wrote this post on the Nintendo Switch™ in 2018, but my love for the Switch as the best gaming system for families is still SUPER strong. Especially if you're looking for your kiddo's first gaming system, the Switch is my top recommendation (even with the release of the new Nintendo Switch OLED).  So much so, that this year...
Have a comic book lover in your life (or someone looking to start drawing)? We've found uber-cool gift ideas for them (think drawing, drafting & swag).
I think one of the most daunting things about walking into an art store is the 4,000 types of paper and 800 types of pencils lining the walls. If you have someone in your life who loves comic books or is looking to start drawing, I've gone uber-hard finding some cool gift ideas for them. I’ll keep it short...
Once again, we're looking for cool, unique gift ideas for tweens & teens. We prefer gifts that go beyond the usual requests (video games, phones,) but still have some sort of 'wow' factor.
Things are changing in our house. Our old playroom, once filled with blocks and Magna-Tiles and dress-up costumes and Nerf guns...has been recently renovated so our two boys (a teen and a tween) now have their own bedrooms. Instead of swinging on bars and building towers, there's a lot more moody listening of music going on. 17 Cool...
Don't walk, run! We've got 16 tried-&-true stocking stuffer ideas we personally vouch for + a few smaller gifts for him, her or them. And it all ships in time for Christmas.
We are big on stockings in this family -- and this year, it feels like we're trying to squeeze in even more than usual. (No filler oranges in the toe this go 'round -- though based on how much Lana loves oranges, she might actually be a bit disappointed.) 16 Stocking Stuffer Ideas That'll Still Ship On Time Below are...
We're shopping a FEW last-minute gifts. Think: thoughtful presents we personally own & love, or items we've gifted w/ success so that the panic-purchasing feels a little “less panic-y”.
It's usually at this point in the holiday season that I'm FREAKING out because I realize I "need" one...or six...more gifts. There's always someone I forgot or someone unexpectedly joining in a celebration. Or I panic and want to buy my kids and loved ones just a couple more little surprises. That too. **Quick Links To My 4 Fav Gifts...
We're obsessed. Among Us has us folding in tasks at home & "you look sus" = the phrase of the day. So we're rolling w fun gifts, for the imposter among us.
You Sus and You Look Sus have absolutely become my favorite expressions of #2020, in Quarantine, while making the best of stay-at-home. Thank you Among Us, for giving this mom a great giggle, for the entertainment, and for some fun words to use, too! Two of my three kids are gamers. The third, generally has not been interested in online...
Just the kind of challenge kids & adults need: beautiful puzzles — double-sided, round, recycled, layered...perfect for indoor family time (& also for gifts).
I am mind-blown right now, in a great way, by a puzzle. This Gray Malin Beach Puzzle is not only a beautiful work of art, it's double-sided!!! Is this concept new to anyone else? I'm so excited about it because this is exactly the kind of new challenge we need in 2021 — a beautiful double-sided puzzle seems just about...
Mamas! It's the holiday shopping list we've all been waiting for, right? Cool gifts for teens, unique gifts for tweens — TME found 26. Presents they'll love...we hope.
Need some gift ideas for the Tween (or Teen) in your life? Not only is this age pretty tricky — they all seem to be caught somewhere between childhood and adulthood — but the desire to WOW this decidedly moodier breed of human is STRONG. At least...it is for this mama. 26 Cool, Unique Gifts For Tweens (&...
Let's play! We're shopping fun gifts — think LEGO, Star Wars, matching family pj's, graphic tees & of course, games. Zulily is on it — #addtocart.
A huge thank you to Zulily & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. Oooooh! Today's Zulily shop is GOOD! I considered featuring the big sale on Vionic (you know it's hard for me to look away from crazy supportive shoes on sale), but the playful gift ideas on their site today are SO MUCH FUN! I personally need more play...
Chess is all the rage (oh, hey, The Queen's Gambit fans), so w/ fresh eyes, we're scooping up cool, modern chess boards — for those grandmasters in training.
If there's one holiday gift move to make this year, if you're also obsessed with The Queen's Gambit, it's this: order a Chess Board (this is my favorite) before they sell out. Holiday shopping this year is in fact a bit like speed chess — you need a good strategy and fast moves. I binged the Queen's Gambit, solo, all...
