Gift buying can be stressful! I want the gifts to be meaningful and something that is not only fun but useful in many ways! These gift ideas will delight and inspire kids! From STEM to giving back, these are all gifts that will go a very long ways and will be used throughout the year!

These glitter ballet flats from Vince Camuto are absolutely beautiful.  I love the bow on the toe and the studded details. The stretchy studded band is absolutely perfect and the glitter just has me swooning.  They have a cushioned and comfortable insole.  

My daughter loves to put on a dress and wear pretty shoes.  She just fell in love with the all the glitziness! 

These are the perfect shoe for any girl who loves to dazzle and shine! 

How perfect are these for holiday parties and events?  

Viv & Lou Travel Bag

This kids' travel bag from Viv & Lou is absolutely gorgeous.  And it's HUGE!!!  I was surprised at how roomy it was.  

One of my goals for 2018 is to take more trips and in order to go on trips- a kid must have their own travel bag, right? 

This bag is not only beautiful, it's practical.  Any kid will LOVE one for Christmas!

P.S. You can also get your items personalized at Viv & Lou! I found a bag for myself to match my daughter's! 

This projection system from Helio is seriously the coolest and will make a killer gift this year for your child.  This is an educational AND calming night light that educates.  It comes with multiple discs to unwind with.  Want to see the constellation? Done! 

Head over to the Helio Site and Enter “LearningLight” - Buy one helio and enter the code, the second one is discounted to 34.95. Good through April 2018 

Kids love to build and create, right? How about building with bendable and connectable magnetic strips to REALLY take creations to another level? That's what Magnaflex does!  Construction toys are great for kids of all ages (shhhhh! Don't tell anybody but I might have created an item or two)

Have you heard of the tradition in Iceland called Jolabokaflod?  It's a Yule Book Flood! On Christmas Eve, it's tradition to exchange books and read all night.  Add chocolate, if you wish.  As a bookworm, that's my kind of tradition.  I have always felt that the gift of a good book is a book from the heart.  

That is why gifting "The Wonderling" by Mira Bartok is a wonderful addition to this year's presents.  A middle-grade fantasy novel that will delight children who appreciate a story full of adventure, friendship, and wonder! 

Synopsis via Candlewick Press:

Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, an institution run by evil Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who believes her terrified young charges exist only to serve and suffer. Part animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and factory, forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly singing and music. For the Wonderling, an innocent-hearted, one-eared, fox-like eleven-year-old with only a number rather than a proper name — a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck — it is the only home he has ever known. But unexpected courage leads him to acquire the loyalty of a young bird groundling named Trinket, who gives the Home’s loneliest inhabitant two incredible gifts: a real name — Arthur, like the good king in the old stories — and a best friend. Using Trinket’s ingenious invention, the pair escape over the wall and embark on an adventure that will take them out into the wider world and ultimately down the path of sweet Arthur’s true destiny. Richly imagined, with shimmering language, steampunk motifs, and gripping, magical plot twists, this high adventure fantasy is the debut novel of award-winning memoirist Mira Bartók and has already been put into development for a major motion picture.

PEZ: Christmas Ornament Collection & Holiday Tube

I love, love, love putting little special gifts on the Christmas tree.  Just little treats that serve as both an ornament and a treat like these adorable PEZ candy dispensers.  I am a sucker for PEZ and I have such warm and fuzzy memories of collecting the dispensers and love passing these onto my daughter.  

The ball ornament with the angel dispenser is so cute.  The Reindeer tube is perfect for a stocking stuffer!
