Christmas is right around the corner (yikes!), and for us this Christmas is extra special because it will be Oliver’s first Christmas. As a family, we try to live by a less is more philosophy when it comes to presents and toys, but it’s always easy to get carried away. We love giving gifts that are handmade, involve experiences, or are more open-ended. It’s especially hard to come up with gift ideas for babies… especially third babies who already have a lot of toys.
When it comes down to it, half of the fun is just opening a present and finding something inside that you know you will love. And what do babies love? Food! That’s why, instead of getting Oliver any toys for Christmas gifts this year, I’ve wrapped up some of his favorite Happy Family products and put them under the tree. I know that Oliver will be thrilled to be a part of the gift opening process, and will enjoy snacking on all of his wonderful choices! And before you feel too bad for Oliver, you must know that my in-laws (who always find the most amazing gifts) have already sent him quite a few special presents to open.
Last week I filled a box with some of Oliver’s favorite Happy Family products, and he just loved digging around in that box and finding a new treasure. He pulled out the snacks one by one and I let him eat a little bit of everything. He definitely spent more time playing with, and got more enjoyment from those tasty healthy snacks than he would have from a box full of toys.
We especially love the Happy Family Brand because of their dedication to providing healthy, organic, delicious foods to growing babies and children. Good nutrition is so important right from the start, and the Happy Family products make it easier. Oliver loves the happy puffs and happy munchies, both which have a lot of healthy green veggies baked right in. Plus, the packaging is always so cute and creative.
