Another holiday, another gift guide — anyone feel like we’ve had a ton of holidays this year already? Wait, only two? No ways, there’s been at least seventeenupton.
Don’t get me wrong, I love holidays — especially ones as special as Easter. What I don’t love is feeling obligated to buy more junk for my three year old. For the past three Easters I just grabbed whatever cute stuff I found in the Target dollar spot. I wasn’t two weeks later that every bit of it was in the trash and there went $20 along with it. So here’s what I’m gonna do — ditch the unnecessary sugar high and commit to only getting a few practical items that are useable beyond a day.
- Pajamas, but the shorts and short sleeve version since it’s getting warmer and she sweats like an overly athletic man when she sleeps.
- New paint, she’s all out.
- Polly Pocket — she saw it on TV the other day and about fainted. Kid after my own heart because I’m pretty sure I had the same reaction to it at her age.
- The Fancy Nancy Easter book. Because you always gotta throw a book in there to consider yourself a good mom, right?
Brings it to $30 total. #success
