Holiday Gift Guide 2013: Give Your Kids Some Santa Style with Gymboree {Giveaway}

Note: We received a gift card to facilitate our review. All opinions are honest and are our own.


We love Gymboree for our kids (and yes, I’ve gotta admit, most of all for our daughter. Shopping for girls IS more fun!) so I had a blast picking out some holiday items for them. A HUGE tradition for us is to give the kids new Christmas jammies on Christmas Eve. They wear them that night and then have cute PJs for Christmas morning! While they’re still young enough to go with it, I like to have them coordinate, and I found some absolutely ADORABLE pajamas at Gymboree.


Aren’t they great? J & C’s are the ones on the left, and E’s set has a little bow on the antlers (her pants are also striped differently). LOVE them! I was actually really torn because they had quite a few great sets of PJs that coordinate. These have slippers that go with them, and I am having to use all my willpower not to order those too!

Keeping in the Christmas vein, I also got the boys each a shirt for school. These are warm and cozy and will be great for them to wear starting next week and all through the rest of this semester. Gymboree does a great job of having really cute things for little ones and then cool designs for the older kids, too.


Make sure to keep up with Gymboree on Facebook and Twitter!

I know you love Gymboree as much as I do, so I’m sure you’ll be excited about this next part – a giveaway for a $75 gift card to Gymboree!

Tiny Prints Giveaway | Holiday Gift Guide 2013

Note: I will receive Tiny Prints holiday cards to facilitate my review. I was not compensated monetarily for this post, and all opinions are honest and are my own! 




Have you started thinking about your holiday cards yet? It’s about that time, and we’re planning to take photos of the kids this weekend for our card. It’s nice for me to know that once we get that elusive picture taken (if you’ve ever tried to get three young children to even look at the camera together, let alone smile simultaneously, you know what I mean) the process will be an easy one, thanks to Tiny Prints.

I’ve been a huge fan of Tiny Prints for a long time. Their designs all feel special and detailed and high-end. One year we sent out a Tiny Prints card that people could hang from their tree, and I can’t even tell you how many comments we got about that card!

This year Tiny Prints is offering premium trims on some of their cards – you can see some examples here on their chic collection. One of my favorite designs that I’m leaning toward is this one, with the ticket trim:


The back is really fun, too:


Here’s a card with the bracket trim, which I also love (the back on this one is pretty spectacular, too – I think printed backs really make a card nicer than plain white, don’t you?):




Here’s the scalloped trim:


And here’s a card with the rounded corners:


They’re all pretty great, right? I like how the text is laid out (I’m a sucker for good typography) but I also love that the photos are the real focal points of these designs. You can’t really go wrong with a Tiny Prints card! I’ll do a follow-up post soon and let you see what our cards end up looking like, but in the meantime, how about a lovely Tiny Prints giveaway to start off this gift guide on the right foot?

Tiny Prints doesn’t only provide cards and stationery – they also have a huge variety of customizable gift items, such as these iPhone cases:


And guess what? If you win this giveaway, you’ll get your own personalized iPhone case from Tiny Prints (or you can even use it as a gift for someone special on your list)! Since we’re feeling the Tiny Prints love right now, be sure you keep up with them on their social media channels, too!
