Finding the perfect learning toys for babies and toddlers is difficult for me. It isn’t because my 2-year-old is hard to please. I mean, come on, he’s 2-years-old. Don’t get me wrong, I know a few 2-year-olds who are quite obvious about what they want. Thankfully, for the most part, my little one is laid back. In fact, he’s super easy compared to his 6-year-old sister. It’s difficult because there are thousands of possible learning toys for babies and toddlers on the market! As some who is super indecisive, it’s hard for me to chose.
We are literally in the home stretch of the holidays. Actually, you probably already smell the turkey cooking. Unless you’re like me. Then, well, there isn’t a turkey in your home. Thankfully, we are celebrating Thanksgiving this year with my uncle and his wife. They live directly across the street from us. So, it’s super convenient. Plus, my kids love them.
After Thanksgiving comes the well, the fun part, I suppose. Especially if you’re a maniac about Black Friday. In my 30 years on this Earth, I have attempted Black Friday twice Wal-Mart. The first time was so long ago I can’t remember the end results. The second one was just a few years ago. I left with a panic attack. Needless to say, I haven’t been back Black Friday shopping since.
Now, one thing I will do is browse or shop online during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Because, ya’ll, then I NEVER have to experience a crowd. Just a wait. It’s the best. It doesn’t involve long lines, no parking spaces, angry customers, or putting pants on! So, please, YES. Sign me up for ONLINE Black Friday shopping.
If you’re planning on hitting the stores (online or off) this Black Friday, what are you searching for? If you’re like me, you have quite a variety of people in mind. Most of my shopping will consist of searching for learning toys for babies and toddlers, arts and crafts gifts, and cheap stocking stuffers. Honestly, my family is more about the kids when it comes to gifting during the holidays. We want it to be super magical for them.
Learning Toys for Babies and Toddlers and More!
I know a lot of you moms out there are a lot like me. You’re indecisive when it comes to your kids sometimes. Especially when it comes to Christmas presents. With so much competition out there, you want them to have it all. But, for most of us, reality hits. Unfortunately, we can’t afford to give them everyone else in the neighborhood is getting.
BUT, THAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH CHRISTMAS NOW!
Christmas hasn’t always been about the latest $2,000 TV. It hasn’t always been about gaming systems that cost $500+. Nor smartphones that you have to take a loan out to pay for. Nope. Christmas has not always been about that.
My fondest memories of Christmas during childhood isn’t any of the gifts I got. In fact, I can’t remember any gifts. What I can remember are our trips to see relatives out of town. As well as eating Christmas breakfast at my grandaddy’s house every Christmas morning. The things I remember are the times we spent together.
That is something I am trying really hard to instill in my children. My oldest, she’s 6-years-old, is your typical “I want everything I see” kid. Including her 2-year-old brother’s toys, clothes, and even shoes. Which, let me tell you, none of which fit her at all. But, despite her desire to “want” things, I have been blessed that she is not one to throw a fit when she doesn’t get her way. She is very grateful and super understanding.
The Moms Uncut squad wanted to share some of our family’s picks for gifts this Christmas. We created a mini holiday 10-page gift guide. The “Moms Uncut: Holiday Gift Guide 2017” will be released 11/23/2017. Yep, on Thanksgiving. The day before Black Friday. That is in hopes you can find even better deals on some awesome Christmas presents!
Our gift guide is completely random. We created different categories that our family was familiar with. Then we rolled with the punches. If you’re a little awkward like us, we know you will enjoy it. Unfortunately, if you’re big on organization, you may be disappointed. But, still, give it a shot!
