My Top Present Picks for 2011

I know, I know. There are only a few days left until Christmas. But, you may still need to get that last minute gift for someone you love. Hopefully this list will help.


  • Champion Me Books – these were such a huge hit with all of my kids. The personalization is better than any other book I’ve found. You won’t be able to get the book by Christmas if you order now, but a gift certificate is the perfect way to go.
  • Gracie’s Gift – this is my must-have book for moms of little girls. Such a sweet story that reminds us that our children are a gift from God. You can order the book from Amazon and you may still be able to get it in time for Christmas. {It’s on sale for just $12.37 and if you have Amazon Prime through the Amazon mom program, you can get free two day shipping or pay $3.99 for one day. Totally worth it.}
  • What’s Eating Your Child? – This is my go-to book for my kids. It’s helped relieve chicken skin and so many other issues just by changing what we eat. Definitely a must have for every family.
  • First Time Dad – Know a man that’s about to become a dad – or is a dad? This is the perfect gift for him.
  • Read & Share Bible for Children – perfect for toddlers. Breaks Bible stories up into small, easy to read sections that won’t go over your little one’s head.


Toys & Kids

  • Joovy Bicycoo – A must have if you have a toddler/preschooler that wants to learn how to ride a two wheeler.
  • Leapfong Peek-A-Shoe Octopus – I haven’t done a review on this one, but I couldn’t resist grabbing it for Gage. Great price on Amazon too – just $19.99, but it won’t arrive until after Christmas. I purchased ours at Walmart for around $25.
  • Vtech Sit to Stand Alphabet Train – another must-have item for babies. {No review on this yet either, but another one that I had to grab for Gage.} Amazon has it for $46 and you can still get it in time for Christmas!


Gifts for Grown Ups

  • Windows 7 Phone – after giving up my smartphone to help cut costs around here, this is one toy that I really really miss.
  • Icon Modus 1 Flashlight – Not just any flashlight. Trendy and super bright, plus it’s small enough to carry in your purse or leave in your car.


Clothing & More

  • Custom Covered Wipes Case – don’t lug an ugly pack of wipes around. Make it special by making it exactly what you want.
  • Boba Baby Carrier – I couldn’t survive without mine. Best infant carrier I’ve found.
