Holiday Gift Guide 2011- Reindeer

This is a continuation of the Holiday Inspiration- Reindeer post from last week. I loved the reindeer finds, so I had to post some other gift ideas! All the gifts for her are really cute. My personal faves are the sweater and the earrings.

Let's talk about the gifts for kids, though. The clothes are some of the most adorable things I've ever seen! It makes me wish we had small kids in our family so I could buy EVERYTHING. What baby wouldn't look sweet wearing the reindeer sherpa pram suit? The beanies would look great on the little ones too. And since Christmas is not far away, a lot of the items are going on sale. It's a great time to buy!

Giving ornaments as Christmas gifts is a tradition in our family. It's fun to look at the tree and see how tastes, hobbies, and lives have changed over the years. My "baby's first Christmas" ornament is hung right next to my graduation ornament. On the other side is my brother's Tonka Truck ornament, which is hung slightly above his high school baseball team ornament. It's never too late to start a tradition like this, and especially one that adds meaning to the holidays. However, there are plenty of ornaments this season that can be given as gifts simply because they are cute!
