Last Minute #GiftIdeas For The Holidays
Updated: Mar 25
Running out to the mall this weekend in a frenzy? Have a child to buy for? Have no fear, I've written out a fool-proof shopping guide for ages 0 - 12. Of course, its all about books.
If you're like me, mall traffic in December makes you want to pull your hair out. I've included links so you can shop online and stay in your jammies all day...you're welcome!!
A book is the gift that keep on giving! Long after the toys get boring and the candy is eaten, reading fills a child with creativity and their hearts with wonder. Here are my recs for a book paired with a cute toy. But don't take my word for it...I interviewed several little minions and these ideas received their enthusiastic stamp of approval.
