Secret Keeper Girl Christmas Gift Guide
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Or… Is it? I love Christmas just as much as the next mom, but sometimes I feel like Christmastime gives us another full-time job. The expectations for a perfect holiday are thrown at us, disguised as “fun” via cute Pinterest DIYs, class parties, Christmas cookies and more. Add in Christmas gift shopping, and it’s enough to make a mom lose her mind! Here are a few tips and ideas to help you out this December.
We try not to go too overboard with gifts in our family, but I think it’s fun to get three types of gifts for under the tree. When I shop for my kids (even now that they’ve all left the nest!) I try to buy each of them something they want, something they need, and something to read. It’s a cute rhyme, but it’s also a practical guide to make shopping less of a hassle.
- Something they want can include any fun item they’ve been asking for all year, like that new dress or toy.
- Something they need usually includes some socks and underwear (which they will appreciate when they are older and realize how expensive those items can be).
- Something to read is always my favorite! I try and give them a book that has fed my soul and taught me something, whether recently or when I was their age.
I may not know the wants and needs of your kids, but I do have a few ideas when it comes to what to read! Plus, you can get 20% off your entire purchase at our online store through the month of December using the code “THANKS2018”.
