Holiday Gift Guide & Giveaway: Stocking Stuffers

{ As usual, comments are closed for this post’s GIVEAWAY }

The holiday season is here!  This is my absolute favorite time of year!  There’s something magical about the holiday season.  I am always enveloped in feelings of warm nostalgia, bathing in the kindness of strangers getting in the holiday spirit, inhaling the smell of pine trees, watching in anticipation all the delicious food being prepared… Yes there’s nothing like the holiday season!

We’re kicking off our Holiday Gift Guide by listing our favorite Stocking Stuffers!

First up are the adorable Pop On Pals from Spinmasters.  Aside from fitting perfectly in stockings, they are great for roadtrips or dining out entertainment – you know me and my tin lunchboxes full of distractions! Fun for both boys and girls alike, they come in a variety of characters such as Policeman, Ballerina, Chef, Veterinarian, Gardener, etc., for mix and much fun!  Their 2 in 1 Mix & Match Fun Pals Pack sells for a suggested retail price of $9.99 and is available on and retailers nationwide!

We’re totally digging 77 Kids hat and mitten set lined with Sherpa or Fleece, perfect for the cold NYC winter.  Not to leave the infants out, 77Kids collaboration with Aden+Anais yields some retro chic super soft swaddling blankets and bibs that every mom knows are a must have!

We love OXO everything and they recently gave birth to OXO TOTS which includes everything from feeding to bathing in their modern clean design.  We love the idea of including their snack dish and flip top snack cup filled with your child’s favorite treat as a stocking stuffer.

To top it all off, why not include a cute Mamas & Papas Bit & Bot Pram Toy ($19.99) or Percy the Pig stuffed animal ($14.99), exclusive to FAO Schwarz, they will become an heirloom to treasure.  Don’t you just love all things from across the pond?!  For the little princess in your life, my darling daughter loves the Pinkalicious Small Soft Doll packaged with the Pinkerific Tiara. What little girl doesn’t love a little sparkle in their lives?

DVDs make a great a stocking stuffer for kids for a multitude of reasons.  Great for at home entertainment without commercials, perfect for road trips and vacations.  If you haven’t realized already, we’re huge fans of Juno Baby and their original orchestra music.
