This is my favorite piece to write every year.  It is actually a sneak peek into what my children will be getting too.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything on this list.  So go ahead…happy shopping!

  1. My all-time favorite gift is a summer camp gift certificate.  Over the past few years my mother in law has given my children a week of summer camp for their Christmas gift.
  2. SLAP watch- No need for your child to figure out how to put the watch on and it is has a face (not digital) http://www.slapwatch.com/slap-watch-collection.html#original
  3. Brain Food-silly putty that is all grown up!  SUPER cool and great stocking stuffer! http://www.fatbraintoys.com/toy_companies/fat_brain_toy_co/brain_food.cfm
  4. Digital Book Mark-It keeps track of how long your child has read.  Both of my boys are getting this for Christmas.  http://www.fatbraintoys.com/toy_companies/mark_my_time/mark_my_time_digital_bookmark.cfm
  5. No more gathering all the pillows and blankets in the house, Crazy Forts is here!  http://www.fatbraintoys.com/toy_companies/everest/crazy_forts_69_pieces.cfm
  6. Every child wants to be famous, now here is their chance by having their very own book.  http://www.fatbraintoys.com/toy_companies/creations_by_you/illustory.cfm
