It is the most wonderful time of the year, and shopping for little ones can be especially fun! I have shared some of my favorite gifts for kids in this Noteworthy gift guide. As a mother of two young boys, I am well versed on boy things but have a few favorites for the girls and plenty of items that are gender neutral. It is highly likely Santa will be bringing a few of my picks to the boys this year (he may have already snagged the recorders for their stockings from the Whole Foods in Charleston, SC).

I also included a few of the things we are currently loving, including the Fjallraven backpacks the boys got last year for birthdays. These mini bags are perfect for little ones, especially for travel, and we often let the boys "pack" what toys they want to take along on a trip. I am still hooked on the animals by Hazel Village, a brand I was introduced to through Home with Heart, and especially love this adorable raccoon. I hope this guide will inspire you to add something new to your shopping list!
