Shopping for your kids can be challenging. In our family, we are seeking to buy more than just toys, but something that has a little meaning or can create last memories. When I first started trying to Purchase with a Purpose a couple years ago, there weren’t many option for kids besides clothes. But now, I am happy to share that there are many more options!
And don’t get me wrong here, there is certainly nothing wrong with getting your kids clothes for Christmas. Besides it being a great necessary item, my kids actually enjoy it. But I also know they would be disappointed if that was it.
On to the gift guides…
I don’t know about your little guy, but my little Hollywood is obsessed with hats. This Trucker Hat from Niko Collective would be so adorable on him, I just can’t stand it! And the neon against that purple “I’m Gonna Change The World” tee is just perfect. This one is from Ordinary Hero, a company close to my heart since they helped us fundraise the much-needed funds to bring our daughter home three years ago.
I have been looking for the perfect rain boots for my little man also. Not too plain but not too cutesy…if you know what I mean. So, of course, I was thrilled when I saw that TOMS now carries rain boots! These camo ones would be just the ticket! But since we are also looking for something fun – what kiddo wouldn’t love this adorable Penguin stuffed animal from The Little Market?
For your little ladies, now. I am drooling over some of these finds. Like this Sophia Jr. tourbin-style beanie from Krochet Kids?? I can just picture my Cocoa’s coils peeking out from underneath! When our daughter got her first pair of glasses, I was eyeing these Maddie frames from Jonas Paul Eyewear. Unfortunately we were in a bit of a rush to get her prescription filled and it would have involved getting reimbursement from our insurance company so we decided to wait until next time for those little loves.
As far as something fun…I think it’s pretty safe to say that every little girl loves playing mommy, so what’s better than a baby doll? The Hope doll from Show Hope is the perfect babe to snuggle up with at night. I also love the Hearts for Hearts dolls (I have the Ethiopian one, Rahel, pictured here). Don’t tell my little lady this, but she may or may not be hidden high up in my closet right now!
Last but not least, I’m loving these colorful friendship bracelets from 31 bits! Give your little girl some arm candy or let her give one away to her bestie! Either way, it’s sure to put a smile on her precious face.
Feeling excited and inspired? I know I am. What are your favorites from today’s finds? And as always, please let me know if you have any goodies you think should be added to this list! I’m always on the hunt for more possibilities!!!
