Gift Guide – It’s Not Too Late!

December 16, 2013

Written by Marykate O’Malley, mother of three wonderful children, Gladwyne Pa


I thought I was all set with my shopping, thank goodness for online shopping and free shipping which I finished up while waiting at the barber shop last weekend for my son’s haircut (and thank goodness smart phones). And then this evening, at a family dinner my Aunt asks my youngest what she told Santa she wanted for Christmas. My youngest quips, “It’s a surprise! I only told Santa!” The color drained from my face and the room started to spin. I was casual and cool, “well, aren’t you going to tell us what it was?” She wasn’t going to tell me. Any of us. Any of the adults at least. So I called in reinforcements and asked my oldest – “I am sooooo curious! Do you  know what it is?” She goes off on her mission and comes back with an Elsa costume from Frozen. Thank you God. Disaster averted. 

And so, it is not too late, here are my favorites for this season:


Kids Clothing –

Going somewhere warm? Check out Floatimini you lucky girl!

Some of my new favorites are – Kickeepants – super soft with sweet designs that make me miss baby days. And because I love polka dots (so does my sister, it is genetic) introducing The Matching Dots – super cute clothes! Check them out here! Any babies you need to buy for – how sweet are these Bonnet Friends?!

Kids – Toys & All that fun stuff –

Word Around and Lazer Maze were awarded Toy of the Year – have to love family game night! Check out Thinkfun! And Skylanders! One of my son’s absolute favorites – his must have was Swap Force.

How fun are these Clocky Tocky alarm clocks?! And this paper airplane calendar found on! I have a Piece & Tranquility personalized necklace for my oldest

For Her –

I love Tess handbags – classic and well priced. I have the Georgina in grey and adore. This time of year I always need large study totes for ice skates, and helmets and all the gear that goes along with outdoor winter fun. I have replaced my large Ikea bags with these sturdy totes from Thirty One.

Gerogina in grey


Tess Georgina in grey – lovely! 

I love Ash & Willow – adorable fun necklaces and the best part – so well priced! So well priced you will doing a “one for me, one for her” when perusing their site.


For Him –

Randolph makes great sunglasses for him and her. And how about some Altec speakers or an ihome docking station!


And for You –

In the Philadelphia area with the temperatures hovering around 30 every day a casual and warm jacket is a must. I am loving my Spyder timeless hoodie. It will certainly do the trick on the slopes as well. Or how about a Doie robe! So soft and luxurious.
