My Happy Baby’s First Christmas Made Easier

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Happy Family Products for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

December is a really busy month for us!  Not only are we getting ready for Christmas, but we also have a birthday celebration right before Christmas in our family.  My oldest daughter turns 15 this week.  Her birthday request was to take an overnight shopping trip with a couple of friends.  That worked great for me, because I still needed to finish Christmas shopping.  The only problem is, that even though my teen and I had a lot of shopping we could do, I still needed to take my 9 month old baby along with us.  She’s still nursing, so she doesn’t get away from mom much, but she can be a challenge when we’re out and about for very long.

 

 

I recently received a box of goodies from Happy Family Brands full of healthy organic food options for my baby.  Before we left on our trip, I packed anything that would make my life easier while I was out Christmas shopping and driving in the van.  I was so thankful for the Organic Puffs.  When she gets fussy, the only thing that will divert her attention is putting food in her mouth!  We were able to keep the Puffs available and any time she would fuss, we’d give them to her, prolonging her periods of happineess.  A huge score for me!  (In the picture at the top, she was enjoying them at the hotel…while she waited for our next adventure.)  All through the month of December, while I’ve been running here and there, trying to get caught up on Christmas shopping and decorating, we’ve been using these delicious snacks and foods to keep little Quinnly going.  She’s LOVES them and will squawk really loud until she gets the next bite.

6 Christmas Gift Ideas for Tween Girls

Craft Supplies:  Tweens love to be creative.  This is a great time for them to learn how to knit or crochet, so knitting needles and instruction books could be a great idea.  Craft lessons would also be fun.  Scrapbooking supplies and other crafting projects would be great as well!  My kids love to work with photographs at this age!

 

Clothes:  What tween girl doesn’t love to look nice?  Well, I guess a few don’t care, but in general, this is the age where they like to get all dolled up and looking cute!  An outfit complete with shoes and accessories would be perfect for a girl this age!

 

Books:  This is typically the age where they start caring more about reading, too.  There’s book series’ like Anne of Green Gables, Chronicles of Narnia and more that will keep their interest for a long time.  For recommendations, be sure to visit your local library and I’m sure they’ll give you lots of great ideas!

 

Movies:  My tween hasn’t given me her list of movies she’d love to own yet, but….I know it’s coming.  Last year, that was the main thing on her list.  She loves owning her favorite movies.

 

An Excursion:  What tween doesn’t love going out and having a bunch of fun?  A trip to go bowling, ice skating, to a theme park, an indoor water park, a pizza place with arcade, go cart riding, shopping, etc.  It’s one of those clutter free gifts that everyone has fun with!

 

A Tablet:  This has got to be my tween daughter’s number one pick on her list this year!  You know which one I’ve got my eye on?   The Microsoft HP Stream 7 Signature Edition!  I just found out that you can get it right now, way before Black Friday for only $99!  What an amazing deal!!  The HP Stream 7 tablet from Microsoft Store is available NOW, both online and in stores!
