7 Of The Best Under $25 Toddler Gifts

7 Of The Best Under $25 Toddler Gifts

In my experience some of the best gifts that I have received have either been the gift with purchase or seriously something super cheap. Any one say Chocolate!!! Because I am so easy to please gift wise I started to think about how I was going to shop for my babies this holiday season. Morgan is almost two now so she will be much more aware of Christmas.

The more I brainstormed and the more I sent family members gift wish lists, I realized every item on the list was under $25. How can that be? Well it’s quite simple. Toddlers love what they love, and they don’t need elaborate things to make them happy. Morgan’s favorite toy to date is a matching game that my sister bought for her from the Target dollar section. A close second is an Amazon box and a crayon. She’s extremely easy to please.

However with the holidays coming up I do want to get her something special. I am listing below items that I have sent family members as our gift wish list: 7 Of The Best Under $25 Toddler Gifts. I listed approximate dollar amounts because sometimes Amazon uses a third party seller and the prices can vary, however they will only vary slightly.

How To Explain The Meaning Of Thanksgiving To Your Toddler

How To Explain The Meaning Of Thanksgiving To Your Toddler

In the middle of March I wrote a super successful post about the history and origin of St. Patrick’s day. I wanted to research it because honestly I didn’t know anything about it. Yet I was dressing Morgan in green head to toe! That post ended up launching a series of posts after I received multiple comments to create a post for each holiday. I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway. What a better way than to actually learn the facts behind them. You can read all of my past posts below:

  1. St. Patrick’s Day
  2. Easter
  3. Mother’s Day
  4. Memorial Day
  5. Father’s Day
  6. Fourth of July
  7. Labor Day
  8. Halloween

I learn so much from doing these posts, and I find that I really enjoy researching and writing them. Today I will be sharing with you How To Explain The Meaning Of Thanksgiving To Your Toddler. Let’s learn together why we celebrate this holiday, and more importantly why we eat pumpkin pie. 

As always I would like to thank my wonderful friend Google. Google was able to steer me in so many fascinating directions while researching this history. Prior to my research I had no idea what the name of the tribe was that the colonists celebrated the first Thanksgiving with, nor was I aware of why we celebrate on the third Thursday in November. Little did I know that the economy and stimulating spending was the hidden reason. I hope you truly learn as much as I did.

I would once again like to thank my wonderful friend Google. As always Google was able to steer me in so many fascinating directions while researching this history. Prior to my research I had no idea why we would dress is costumes, carve pumpkins or say trick or treat on Halloween. I hope you truly learn as much as I did.

5 Must Have Products That Make Pregnancy More Comfortable

5 Must Have Products That Make Pregnancy More Comfortable.

As I’m now well into my third trimester I have noticed that I am becoming more and more uncomfortable. Sitting, standing, driving and sleeping all have their downsides. I don’t remember being this uncomfortable when I was pregnant with Morgan, but maybe that’s part of the whole after birth amnesia that people tell you about. Not remembering how much it hurts etc! Although I can assure you I still remember ever second of labor and birth and for some crazy reason I decided to do it all over again. Is it too late to turn back?

If Parker arrives early just like Morgan did then I only have three weeks to go! If he decides to cook until he’s full term I have 6 more weeks of discomfort. I don’t know which option I’m hoping for more, longer pregnancy or shorter discomfort?

I knew that in order to make these last few weeks the best that they can be that I would need to turn to my trusted friend Amazon for some ideas. Needless to say I went a little order happy but the items I found have really made a huge difference! I’m hoping that if you are pregnant (any trimester) that these products will work as well for you as they have been for me. Here they are:

3 Of The Best Baby Products For Your Second Baby

3 Of The Best Baby Products For Your Second Baby

When I had Morgan almost two years ago the amount of stuff that we needed seemed overwhelming. However now that I am almost due with Parker, I was struggling to think of what we could possibly need. It’s funny how with the second baby you realize that most of the gizmos and fancy baby items are not at all useful. For example, why did we need a wipes warmer. I still can’t figure that one out. I used it just a few times and then realized it was more of a hassle then it was worth. In fact it never really kept the wipes that warm and instead was just another power sucker!

In today’s post I am going to share with you 3 Of The Best Products For Your Second Baby. These are the items that I will most definitely be using with my new little bundle of joy.
