In the spirit of the holiday season, today’s Q&A is about Black Friday. How do you decide on your gift giving purchases? Does your family set limits with some sort of tradition?
Our family’s is pretty simple. Watch the video below for today’s question and to hear how we choose what gifts to give our kids (and please ignore my Dorothy Hamill doo — I’ve had a bad hair month).
Here are some of the ideas I shared in the vlog:
Wee Wonderfuls — Hillary Lang has a great site full of creative ideas, and her new book full of 24 doll patterns looks adorable. Here’s the pattern for Olive, the doll I made Tate last year. I’ll probably make Archie for Reed this year.
Umecrafts — This is the Etsy shop where I bought my felt food patterns (sent to me as PDF downloads).
Here are some posts where I shared some of my favorite children’s books (the comments are full of great ideas, too):
• 10 Great Authors in Children’s Literature
• Twaddle-Free Books for Preschoolers: My Top 10 Favorites
• 14 Books to Help Ease Children Through Transitions
• 10 Picture Books That Teach Important Life Lessons
And starting Monday, all of Simple Living Media is bringing you Home for the Holidays, a week of great giveaways. All 25 items would make great gifts, so I hope you’re as excited as we are! Each giveaway lasts only 24 hours, so check in daily on all five sites.
Alright, so today’s Q&A… Please share what your family does in the comments section!
