It is hard for me to pick a gift for a child without thinking of my own daughter. Right now, she cannot get enough of play food. I especially love Melissa and Doug toys because of their commitment to safe toys and adorable designs. That’s why my top pick for kids this year is the Melissa and Doug Sushi Slicing Play Set.

Like many a little girl, I’m a sucker for sparkles which is the first reason why I love TOMS Silver Glitter Shoes. But even better is the fact that for every pair you buy, TOMS donates a pair to a child in need. A sparkly gift that keeps giving sounds just about perfect.

With my little bouncing baby boy on the way, I cannot help but be obsessed with GAP’s buffalo plaid collection this winter. The plaid trapper hat is not only adorable, but practical for cold Wisconsin winters, complete with a velcro chin strap to help keep the hat on your little ones head.
