My friends, Lisa from Fab Frugal Mama, Maya from Mayahood Blog, Amanda from Multi-Testing Mommy, and Meri from Lil-Sugar and I want to spread some holiday cheer this season and give our readers the chance at winning some great gifts for the kids on their lists. We’ve included some of our favourite kid items in our Great Holiday Giveaway for Kids! One of our lucky readers will get to win it all. Yes, this prize is valued at over $1300 and one reader will get to win it all! Since it’s the season for giving, we thought it would be great to give someone some great gifts for their kids, nieces, nephews, or even to donate to your local toy drive, shelter, hospital or another favourite charitable organization of yours.
We’re excited to share these with you!
UV Protective Swimsuits for the Fashion Forward! Are you going somewhere warm and tropical this holiday? One of my must-have items for my little one is SwimZip! Hubby and Little One both have fair skin, and I’m super concerned about harmful UV rays and always keep my family protected with sunblock, sun hats, and UV protective swimsuits. It also helps that SwimZip has items for the entire family AND has so many super cute designs, styles and colours!
Say goodbye to messy, unmade beds! Fun, fast, easy! Works like a sleeping bag…you just zipit! I used to get really frustrated with the state of Little One’s bedroom. Her bed was always disheveled and a mess, but with Zipit Bedding, making her bed is a snap for her. She even enjoys making her bed because it’s so easy! She just zips it up, and presto! Her bed is made! She also likes that the bedding comes in several designs and colours. The bedding is reversible and your kids can even mix and match if they wish!
A fun, bright, way to have a “green” holiday and a a “green” New Year! Funkins reusable cloth napkins are great for the entire family. No more using paper napkins when you have these delightful, fun cloth alternatives!
We’ve been longtime fans and loyal users of Funkins reusable cloth napkins. We practice litter-less/waste-free school lunches and Funkins are the perfect item for eco-friendly lunches. Funkins are giving one lucky reader a Family Set of Funkins. That’s 12 Funkins of the winner’s choice. Go festive and select from the beautiful holiday prints or choose your own!
I’m a big supporter of small businesses, Canadian businesses, and mompreneurs. Preppy Littles is a fabulous Etsy shop that I really love. You can really tell that each piece is hand-crafted with love.
Spruce up your little one’s holiday outfit with this beautiful Christmas headband. Great way to get photo ready for all the family photo opps this season. Preppy Littles is giving one lucky reader 1 Baby or Girl sized Christmas Headband.
Beados Gems Designer Studio & Sunshine Butterfly Activity Pack
Create a Gem Suncatcher with Beados Gems Sunshine Butterfly Activity Pack. If you’ve got a creative little one who loves crafts, this will keep kids occupied for a while. My Little One is obsessed with Beados and loves creating things to gift to others. I like it because it keeps her busy, helps her with coordination, concentration and fine motor skills. She also has to learn how to be patient because those tiny beads are sometimes tricky to put into place.
Blo Pens Super Activity Set & Blaster Activity Set
Another great item if you have a creative kid in your house. My Little One is all about arts and crafts. Give her markers and paper, and she’s busy for hours.
I think Blo Pens would be an ideal gift for an artsy kid! The hit arts and crafts toy of the 1990s is back! BLO pens are really MAGIC markers: use a stencil, blow into the pen and watch your drawing appear!
Little Live Pets Turtle (2 pc)
When Little One was first introduced to Little Live Pets, she was obsessed with the Little Live Pets Love Birds! When she saw the turtles, she thought they were absolutely adorable. Kids will have fun with the adorable Lil’ Turtle that swims in very own tank! Prize includes tank, turtle, plus an additional turtle.
