Honestly, I can’t tell you how much fun I had putting this particular gift guide together. So many fun and style-conscious finds I can’t wait to give my own children…! This stocking stuffer guide is geared towards children 2-6, give or take, and also contains lots of good stand-alone gifts if you’re looking for a reasonably priced little something to offer children in your life. I will be publishing a stocking stuffer guide for babies (I know many of you have tiny ones this year!) soon!

P.S. “Something elastic happens to time once you become a mother. An hour can feel like a lifetime, and a year can zip by so quickly it nearly erases itself, and the malapropisms and baby grammar and peek-a-boo along with it. And running straight through (or perhaps an asymptote of or other-geometric-function-whose-name-I-can’t-recall to) those distortions: the wilderness of time as witnessed by a child.” More here.
P.P.S. Some of our current favorite children’s books.
P.P.P.S. Difficult ages.
