Becoming Santa

Ever since I can remember Christmas has always been my favorite day of the year, eggnog has always been my favorite drink, and Santa has always been my favorite guy. So, you all can imagine my excitement this year when it hit me that we got to play Santa to our little girl! Being a working mama left me limited time to go trek around the mall, so I had to do things a little differently. Almost all of her gifts I ordered online, and in doing so I discovered some awesome sites for baby stuff.

  • Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores to shop at for myself so when I saw they had a “Gifts for Kids” section on their site this season I about flipped! I have always been pretty adamant about not having cheesy baby items all over my house and this is a one-stop-shop for the prettiest, boho, toys & gifts! Some of my favorites we got for our daughter are this whimsical wand and this activity horse.
  • The Land of Nod is my go-to place for modern baby items from toys to décor. We got Chandler this instrument set but I don’t know if we are going to regret this one because she’s loud enough as it is, hehe.
  • On my hunt for some different, non traditional gifts I discovered this website called Bonjour Petit and it’s my dream come true. It’s a U.S. online vendor for French toys. I really wanted to get Chandler her first baby doll for Christmas this year and I searched forever to find a non-creepy, baby-friendly one. I was so excited when I found this website and found the most perfect doll! She’s super quirky, soft, and has hair that looks like Chandler’s when she wakes up in the morning. I thought she was perfect!

Paper Source also made it simple for wrapping paper, ribbon, tags and even some stocking stuffers. This made it simple when I was running low on time and needed to get everything at once!

Like I said before, Christmas has always been my favorite day of the year, however, I have never experienced as much joy as I did this Christmas and it was all thanks to my loving boyfriend and our little babe. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas & is excited for the New Year! I know I am 🙂
