Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you have all been able to cross fun things off your bucket list and have been able to spend time with those you love! We're in full blown holiday mode over here and it is such a blast. It's true, this really is the most wonderful time of the year. The girls get excited every morning to see where the elf is hiding, to hang an ornament, to get an advent treat, and to see how many days are left until Christmas! I have a few more gifts to buy and a few more to finish making, but I thought I'd share with you guys some little girl gift ideas that every little lady will LOVE! This guide includes gift ideas and stocking stuffers from each of these brands: Candlewick Press, Kid Trax, Open the Joy, Beloved Bath, Baby Alive, and Play On! 

First Up: Will You Be My Friend? by Sam McBratney, Illustrated by Anita Jeram from Candlewick Press

My little Cambria LOVES books. She asks to read them every single day, multiple times a day. I often find her just sitting off by herself making up little stories that go along with the pictures in her books. It's adorable and I love how much it sparks her imagination. Will You Be My Friend is the sequel to the adorable book Guess How Much I Love You. I made sure to read this book alone before reading it to my girls and it is absolutely darling. It is exquisitely illustrated and the message is warm, lyrical, and playful. I love that Will You Be My Friend is a storybook adventure with friendship at its heart. 

Second: Silly Skaters Unicorn Inflatable Ride-On Toy From Kid Trax

This particular toy happens to be Cambria's favorite. She seriously rides all over the house in it, it's awesome! If I ask her to go grab her shoes, she rides down the hall to grab her shoes. If it's time to get ready for bed, she rides to the shower. If she wants to pretend her dolls are riding a horse, she sits them down and scoots them around. She cannot get enough of this toy! The Silly Skaters Unicorn is made for ages 1-3 and trust me, your little girl will be more than thrilled to receive it. This soft, inflatable unicorn on roller skates is so stinking cute, but also perfect to ride around on or push around for the younger kiddos. The skates also include activated LED's so they light up as your child rolls! I'm telling you, this unicorn has it all! Make sure you head too to see and learn more about all the fun toys they have to offer!

Third: Grab-n-Go Conversation Cards/ Let’s Joke!/ Let’s Think!/ Let’s Talk! From Open the Joy

Sometimes stocking stuffers can be daunting. Every year my kids end up with stuff that is fun for a second and turns into junk lying around the house the next day. Either that or just a bunch of candy and we all know that's a recipe for disaster! These Open The Joy Grab-n-go conversation cards are absolutely perfect for stocking stuffers! They are loaded with 109 questions that are thought-provoking conversation starters.  The deck of cards encourages meaningful discussions that promote bonding, self-expression, and nurtures emotional balance in kids. They are the perfect ice breaker for talks at the dinner table, road trips, and bed time. The portable conversation cards include: Let's Joke! Let's Think! and Let's Talk! (each sold separately). These pocket-sized cards are easy to transport no matter where you are headed. They also have a handy clip that makes it easy to attach the conversation card game to your purse or bag helping you to be ready for any moment. 

Fourth: Box of 4 Assorted Soaps from the Best-Selling Kids Collections and Hand Cleansing Spray from Beloved Bath

Raise your hand if your kids love bath time more than practically any other time!! I'm raising both of my hands because my kids would choose to take a bath at any point in the day. Personally, I find it easier for them to shower but they love bath time SO much. Let's be honest, I love a good warm bath myself! That's why a gift from Beloved Bath is the perfect gift for your girlies. The box of 4 assorted soaps comes from their best-selling kids collections: building block soap, heart soap, glitter lips -with eco glitter, and elephant soap. All soaps contain: phthalate free fragrance, and natural colorants. The hand cleansing spray is perfect for travel and school, skin friendly, sustainably sourced, non GMO alcohol coxed with a citrus essential oil blend and deonized water. Beloved Bath's mission is "meaningful employment for people with autism" and they proudly partner with vocational programs and hire those with autism. These are feel good gifts that make a real social impact!

Fifth: Tinycorns from Baby Alive

I wish you all could have seen how happy Oaklyn was about this Baby Alive... oh man! It was the cutest thing! She carried the box around with so much joy and was squealing with happiness when I took the doll out of the box. She has hardly put it down and is loving being a little mama. The Tinycorns baby doll comes wearing a dreamy, hooded unicorn dress and includes a sparkly cup for her favorite drink! Oaks is obsessed with all things rainbow and unicorns so she was thrilled to see a Baby Alive decked out in her current obsessions! This Baby Alive Tinycorns doll really "pees" like a baby, so make sure your cutie is wearing a diaper! Honestly, that is one of Oaklyn's favorite parts about the doll, haha! I think it makes her feel more like a little mama to change her bum. 

Lastly, but certainly not least: Play On! from Bay Area Children's Theatre

I know we're all looking for ways to keep our kiddos occupied this Winter... this is the perfect gift for that! Play On! is a screen-free audio-musical adventure with a storytelling kit. You can get it as a subscription series or as an individual kit. Once you help your kids download the soundtrack, off they go on their adventure where they will run around, make choices, and solve puzzles! 

Here are the two different series and the one special edition:

I hope you enjoyed these gift ideas and I especially hope you have a wonderful Holiday season!
All my love,

  1. Blockchain securely stores segments of data through a self-managing, peer-to-peer network of computers. And some of its key components include irreversible records (i.e., unchangeable blocks of data), decentralized transactions, and smart contracts. Much of the initial private blockchain-based development is taking place in the financial services sector, often within small networks of firms, so the coordination requirements are relatively modest. Nasdaq is working with, one of many blockchain infrastructure providers, to offer technology for processing and validating financial transactions. The Bank of Canada is testing a digital currency called CAD-coin for interbank transfers. We anticipate a proliferation of private blockchains that serve specific purposes for various industries.Smart contracts, however, operate on the Ethereum blockchain, and are contracts that automatically execute without an intermediary once certain conditions are met. For example, a smart contract could be programmed to send a designated person a portion of your Bitcoin when you die. A decentralized system like the internet, so it’s not controlled by one entity and cannot be stopped by a third party. Scalability is the ability of the system to cope with a growing number of transactions.

  2. Get a full-coverage branded paint job done on your company vehicle. Hire an intern or virtual assistant to help with daily marketing tasks. For example, splice YouTube content for Instagram, TikTok, or Facebook. Use an email service to manage your list, such as Mailchimp or Constant Contact. Review analytics statistics to learn more about your market and how to reach it. Make sure you optimize your website and other online content using SEO.

    Studies have found that creative messages get more attention and lead to positive attitudes about the products, but there’s little evidence linking those messages to purchase behavior. The study then linked the assessments to sales figures for the products. It's not always about getting a brand new audience to use your products or services — sometimes, it's about getting your current audience to appreciate and use your product more often. Turn your audience into advocates, and use marketing and ad content to tell them why they should continue to enjoy the product or service you are already providing for them. I can understand how it could be really useful for a business to make sure that they can advertise to their customers more effectively. Getting some help from a professional to target their ads better and reach their audience would be really useful.

    Display ads are great because these are a win-win situation for both you and the owner of the site or digital platform. Maybe the headline doesn’t connect with the offer in the actual ad. Google Ads offers a keyword planner, which you can use to get forecasts for your chosen keywords. If you don’t get this part right, it will be challenging to achieve the results you’re looking for.

    Arguably the hardest part of creating digital content is determining what your users will find engaging and valuable. But taking the time and effort to figure out what your website visitors areactuallylooking for is the (not-so-secret) secret to content marketing success. Personalization allows you to incorporate user data from tracking that includes details like name, company, prior content viewed, etc. into your messaging. Our favorite is HubSpot Marketing Hub, but a quick Google search of your platform will likely let you know if personalization functionality exists. Having user data readily available or easily gathered when you're crafting a marketing campaign allows you to more accurately provide your users with the information they're looking for.

    These options can jumpstart engagement, leading to more sharing of your content naturally. If you’re low on cash for online ads, perhaps you could trade some space on your own website or in your email newsletter with another business that has an overlapping target market. Native online ads are ads that fit with the style and functionality of the other content of the website where they’re featured.
