Kids are so much fun to shop for. But here’s the thing….they have WAY too much stuff these days, so when it comes to the holidays, finding a few really special gifts is worth its weight in gold. So instead of your standard (10 Toys You Should Buy For X-Mas), I’m sharing the Cool Kids Gift Guide – unique items that kids (& parents!) will love…and remember years down the road.
1. Barefoot Dreams Mermaid Throw | Nordstrom (W!t & Wonder Pop-Up) | $99
The Nordstrom W!t & Wonder Pop-Up is a must-shop this season – with the most brilliant, quirky, creative gifts for all ages. The mermaid blanket is perfect for a cool kid night in – bonus points if you throw in some popcorn and a movie. *For my local friends, you can find W!t & Wonder at the Northgate Mall Nordstrom!
2. Is My Homie T-Shirt | Ace Playfield | $25Ace Playfield is designed by former Seahawks player, Gibran Hamdan, who wanted to create fun, personalized kids wear. You can choose from their collection of unique apparel and gear or customize your own – I ordered ‘Mom Is My Homie’ and changed it to gold lettering (You’ll find my girl’s wearing them on Instagram very soon!).
Cool kids love forts. But pulling out every blanket, pillow and linen in the house can drive parents nuts. Which is why we are obsessed with the Air Fort. You attach it to a household box fan or tabletop round fan and it blows up in less than 30 seconds! Plus, it fits up to 5+ kids (ages 3-14). Seriously one of my very favorite ‘toys’ that entertains the kids for hours. Watch the video to see the whole set up!
4. Orion Illuminated Globe | ATG Stores | $111.25
All cool kids need a globe. Let’s encourage wanderlust, travel-seeking, and the sense of adventure. This gift is sure to create dreams that carry through adulthood. The world is a big place – show them! Use code: GIFT100 for $100 off an order of $249 or more – expires 1/31/2017!
5. Virtue Patches | The Novogratz | $29
Designed by the Novogratz, a husband and wife team best known for their shows on Bravo and HGTV, the Virtue Patches are part of their Boutique Lifestyle collection. The idea for your cool kid is to gift them the patches and allow them to share with their friends. You can attach them to sweaters, jackets, backpacks, etc!
