I just finished up my Christmas shopping for my kids and the other minis in our lives and thought I’d share what I tracked down this year for our 2020 gift guide. We’ve got quite the age spread which has been tricky but we still have a house full of believers to which my nostalgic heart is grateful for! I’m trying to eek out at least a few more years of Santa and I’m hoping the sweetest Christmas morning letters from Polar Post will help me on my mission.
Santa is bringing the girls American Girl dolls, which I had to painstakingly sift through every Ebay and Facebook Marketplace listing in the entire US because of course we needed the retired dolls. Kirsten and Caroline are arriving in the sleigh, for those wondering.
Hudson is getting a table top soccer (foosball to us elderly folks) and Ellis and Jack are getting hearty stockings because babies don’t care about anything but empty boxes.
Big Brother Gift Guide|Age 8-9
I don’t know why this year was a bit of struggle to find gifts for Hudson! It seems like the big gifts for this age bracket seems to be geared toward video games (no) and nerf guns (double no). He’s been on a sports kick so we went all in on that theme. Obvious disclaimer being that we have not/will not be buying everything on the list but we own a lot of them, and they’re all great gifts (imho of course) for the 8 year old in your life!
1. wood swing for our big backyard full of trees 2. beanie for the chilly climate we’ve moved to. 3. smash ball 4. beginner pitching machine 5. Perplexus round puzzle 6. NFL game day board game 7. Geode puzzle 8. Loog Guitar 9. glow in the dark magnatiles, the ultimate evergreen gift (has been a hit for literally 8 years) 10. hover soccer ball 11. paper airplane papers 12. avocado smash 13. nerf whistler football 14. flash rocks 15. aarons thinking putty

Big Sister Gift Guide|Age 6-7
Harper and Lucy are a little less than two years apart so they love nearly all of the same things. Pretend play, dollies, and crafts always top their lists. Harper LOVES to write notes and is dying to learn cursive so I couldn’t pass up the cute little handwriting book and her very own gel pens. Santa is bringing Kirsten which I know she’ll be thrilled with. We read all of the OG books from the library during quarantine.
