Gift Guide: Instructor edition

Still searching for some ideas on what to get your tween stepson for Christmas? Or how about your husband who says he just wants time with you for the holidays as a gift? (Thanks...but mama wants a solo trip to Target and a mani/pedi!) Or what about something for you? We've compiled a list of things we know you and your fam will love.

Gift ideas for the baby to toddler set

KidKraft Modern Table and Chairs (in stock, arrives by Christmas!)

Ubbi Freestanding Bath Toy Organizer Bath Caddy (in stock, arrives by Christmas!)

WHISPER RIDE II™ available in pink or blue. Perfect for the many many walks you take when you have a toddler!

Hanna Jams...the best and cutest pajamas for babies (and big kids for that matter!) My nephew is going to be the most adorable lounging around the house with mom this winter. Available with/without feet.

Gift ideas for the preschool set

Craftsman Leaf Blower. With a lot of preschool boys on our instructor team, this idea came up a few times. Maybe our little guys could start their own business helping out the neighbors?

Melissa & Doug Water Wow bundle. This are the absolute best activity books for littles and especially for car time or stroller time. Available on amazon but also in local mom and pop toy stores in NOVA!

Sunny and Fun Balance Stepping Stones this particular brand is out of stock, but there are several other brands you can try! These are so much fun for outdoor play (or indoor basement fun!)

Gift ideas for elementary school aged kids

National Geographic glowing marble run This toy brings hours of fun! All three of my kids (11,8, and 6) love it. Our manager's little guy who is rising K is getting it for Christmas this year so it really is a gift for all ages!

Activ Life Bike Wheel Lights Bikes have been super popular during the pandemic, but we all know safety should always come first when riding a bike. These lights allow kiddos to ride safely as it gets darker in the winter! Also fun for adults!

Squishy Toys Anybody remember fidget spinners? Squishy toys are the new ones! With so many kids doing virtual learning for the foreseeable future, this are a fantastic (and fun) toy to help them stay focused. Also available in local toy stores!

Gifts for those hard to buy for tweens and teens

Aquila Kids Magazine We LOVE subscriptions for kids because they are the gift that keeps on giving. This is a fun option for girls and boys alike.

Razor A5 Lux Kick Scooter My kids aren't big bike riders, but they love scooters! This is the step up version from the little kid one and should last my 11 year old several years.

A bathrobe. All kids love a comfy & cozy bathrobe! Perfect for those cold mornings when you have to log into a virtual class.

Gift ideas for the papas

OluKai Kipuka Hulu Slippers. Dad's not going to office so no reason he can't have comfy and toasty feet while working from home! PS: We also really love their flip flops!

Jumbo Four in Row. We spent A LOT of time in the yard this year and found ourselves wishing we had more activities in said yard. Enter lawn games!

Echo Auto Take Alexa with you in the car! Commercial free music for prime members.

For the real MVPS...the mamas!

Merry Masking Trio. Pamper yourself!

Belgian Waffle Maker. I miss brunch, but at least I can make yummy and fluffy waffles at home?!

Lily Pulitzer Weekender legging. Working out or just looking cute these are the most adorable leggings for our Lily loving mamas!
