This is the first Christmas Little Man has been so aware of his surroundings and has DEFINITE opinions as to his “wants.” Although I could always go with the typical Hot Wheels, candy, or squirt gun I wanted to be a little more thoughtful for his stocking this year. As I thought about the wonderful products and brands I have encountered this year I realized that these ‘different’ type of products would be PERFECT stocking stuffer material for any toddler! So here are a few of my favorite things that Little Man has also loved this year.
Nature’s Path Organic Foods, is a family-run company with the mission of being a trusted name for quality organic foods in every home. All of Nature’s Path products bear the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal and are USDA certified organic, vegetarian (many are vegan), Kosher certified and whole grain. I was blessed to receive a pack of their wonderful cereals and bars to test out. I couldn’t believe how fast I gobbled them up! My son loves their bars and they are a great healthy snack on the go. I was even happier when I learned that some of their line is sold at Trader Joes (one of my favorite grocery stores) while most of the other products are sold at Ralphs. Since then I have been buying their granola cereals for myself and the bars for Little Man. The bars are a great little addition to his stocking this year. Go check out all their products! www.naturespath.com
Beautiful Day CD – Singer, song-writer, and mother of three Erin Wurtemberg is raising awareness about the life-saving efforts of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) by releasing her first full-length record, entitled Beautiful Day. I first heard the album last spring and loved the folk-pop sound. Little Man kept asking for it in the car and I knew I had a new favorite on our hands. Erin, who also happens to be a fellow MOPS mom and friend, is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each CD to CHLA, an organization that she credits with saving her daughters life back in 2005. Take a listen and hear her story below!
LUSH FUN Soaps – There’s not much more I can say about these new multi-purpose, moldable soaps for your body hair and bath that I haven’t already said in my previous review here. But with a price point of $6.95 they are a great little stocking stuffer for any kid wanting something new and different to play with for bath time. And mom will love that they don’t stain but actually get your kid clean! To view all the colors and where to buy visit LUSHUSA.COM.
Miss Pattycake’s Christmas DVD – Now I am adding this item on faith and I will explain why. I received Miss PattyCake’s Eggstraveganza Easter DVD last Spring and Little Man asked to play that thing so many times I think we burned a hole in it. At first they seemed a bit cheesy but all the songs and the message of the story of Christ was so good I couldn’t argue with it’s results. It’s always tough getting through holidays with a little one and trying to instill in them the REAL meaning for the celebrating. Miss Pattycake’s Easter DVD helped tremendously and I am certain her Christmas one will do the same. I have already ordered a copy and am anxiously awaiting its’ arrival to begin combating all the secular messages of Santa, Elf on the Shelf and other things that may distract his little brain from the true meaning of Christmas.
