small fry family favorites [closed]

Congratulations to Jess Peters who won this giveaway!

One last giveaway, and it is a good one! We’ve picked our favorite gifts that benefit the whole family and each one would make an incredible gift on its own, but altogether you’re looking at over $400 of Christmas cheer.

1. One of our partners, Bluum is generously giving away 3 months of their popular Bluum box! Each month you can sign up to receive samples of the latest gear, books, technology, gadgets, food, and toys for parents and kids. We’ve gotten a few Bluum boxes so far and they are awesome! Edible crayons? A book on positive parenting. You know it’s good if it comes in a Bluum box!

2. Our favorite return address stamp, customized however you like! We use these of course for all our mail, but you can even stamp your books, movies, or any other lendable belongings. By Banter and Charm.

3. My Quotable Kidbook: kids really do say the darndest things. We’ll be laughing to tears during the day, and then our husbands come home and all the sudden we can’t remember exactly what the boys said that was so funny. It’s good to keep a record, and this book is perfect for just that!

4. Nine Stickygrams! Printing photos is sort of a lost art, but Stickygrams makes it really easy, just go in pick a few of your favorite Instagrams and they’ll send them right out.

5. How far up your family tree can you name? We can’t go very far unfortunately, but Family Tree Kits to the rescue! They have perfected the family tree with this minimal and stunning kit. Remember the generations that have come before you and have a beautiful piece of art displayed in your home at the same time!

6. The Stendig Wall Calendar is our favorite functional nod to the sixties. Each giant page is beautifully minimal, and goes with just about any decor.

7. Ashmae Family Portraits are our favorite way to capture our families at all our growing stages. A hand-drawn and watercolored custom portrait is the perfect gift and Ashmae is retiring these portraits at any minute, so you may very well be getting the last one!

8. Careaboo Luxury Blankets need little introduction. It’s like being wrapped in cool and soft mink, perfect for a family cuddle session.

9. Finally, battle the cold winter months with an indoor/outdoor play tee pee! You’ve seen these popping up everywhere, but Clemmie Sue‘s is the best value you’ll find!

Okay, here’s how to enter!

    My husband has given me an ornament every year since the first Christmas we were dating. It’s something I look forward to every holiday season and is always sure to induce tears :)

    Best gift… Two simple gold bands to replace the wedding ring I lost. They say ME. Special because my husband and I share the same initials.

    My favorite gift that I’ve given so far was a play kitchen for my son who loves to cook with his daddy. We gave it to him last year from Santa and he has talked about it all year long (and played with it)! There’s nothing quite like a happy kid!

    Every year I buy my dad a cd of “trendy” music, starting in middle school with Nirvana and going through to last year with Florence and the Machines. Still on the fence about what to get him this year, but he says he loves feeling cool while he’s cruising to work!

  52. on December 14, 2012 at 9:17 am said:

    My favorite gift that I gave to my sisters one year were these really cool outdoor drink holders. They are always having outdoor shindigs and these were a nice addition. Love when I can score something great in my budget!

    Uh, WOW! These gifts are amazing! I think my favorite gift I’ve ever received was a giant jar of buttons from my Grandma – I treasure those buttons and am so happy every time I get to use them in a project.

  57. on December 14, 2012 at 9:36 am said:

    My husband and I have been married for one year, and we’ve collected an ornament to commemorate every year we’ve been together. Last year, my brand new sister in law got us a “first year married” ornament.

    My favorite family gift sounds silly, but it was a TV consol/buffet from my parents last year in anticipation of our need to baby proof, and bring better organization to our tiny apartment.

    The thought and time that my family put in to finding the furniture piece that would fit both my husband and my design aesthetic as well as functionality with a new walker/grabber/destructor on the loose, overwhelmed me with appreciation.

    It’s not as much a gift as it is a tradition… but my husband is an airline pilot and in the early years of our marriage (read: pre kids) we traveled often and collected Christmas ornaments from wherever we visited. We really enjoy our memory ornament tree at Christmas time!

    My favorite family gift that I have given was this year. I made cross-stitch ornaments with the year (2012) and a heart on them. I made 17 of them; one for each of my siblings and their families (I’m oldest of 9 children), one for my mom (dad passed on years ago), one for my parent in-laws, one for each of my children (3 married and 3 single) and one for our tree this year. Started in March and finished just before Thanksgiving. :-)

    The best gift that I’ve given and received is LOVE. Nothing can buy pure love, and its an action we should share every single day, not just on Christmas. Especially after today’s tragedy is important to tell our love ones how much we truly love them!

    I surprised my husband with an ipod on a year we said we weren’t going to get anything for each other. He was mad because he hadn’t gotten anything for me, but he loved it too. I would love to surprise him with all of this!

    Already follow. But my greatest gift from my partner was a CD of him singing. He has an amazing voice but is too shy to sing in public. So for him to record his songs as a gift is an amazing thing.

    My favorite gift to give was when my siblings and I were in our late teens/early 20s and we surprised our parents with a trip to Europe for their 25th wedding anniversary. Months of secret planning, saving money from our part-time jobs, and then the looks on their faces when we gave them a guidebook with a page flagged noting where they’d be eating dinner on their anniversary – I don’t know that I’ll ever top that! It was amazing. :)

    My favorite family gift to give was last year when we announced our pregnancy with a surprise picture inside our Christmas card. I found out I was expecting in early December and then had to act fast to get pictures taken and the cards printed and mailed. The hardest part was not blabbing the news and waiting for friends and family to get the news. It was SO exciting! You can see the card on my blog http://lydiaburchett.blogspot.com/2011/12/our-christmas-card.html

  181. on December 15, 2012 at 5:19 am said:

    My favorite gift was a gift not actually given to us, instead the amount of money that would’ve been used on our family was given to a charity and what better a gift for christmas than a gift that really teaches a family about giving! So often we get caught up in all the wants that come with christmas that we forget that christmas should be about the joy of being able to give! Such a great lesson for my daughter to learn!

    My favorite gift was for my mother in law. She had just gone through heart surgery and we were all feeling so blessed and lucky to have her with us. We contacted all of her friends, siblings, grandkids and relatives and had them all write her a letter, telling her favorite memories they had with her and how she has affected their lives. I collected all the letters and put them in a cute box and gave it to her Christmas morning. Lots of happy tears that year.

    My favorite gift to give to both sets of grandparents: yearly photo albums of the grandkids and their adventures! It’s great to have digital copies of photos, but also awesome to have a physical book of photos to flip through (ESP since grandparents are a little bit older and really cherish a nice book.) it takes a bit more time to create this gift but it’s def so worth it! :)

    Favorite gift I’ve received for Christmas has to be watching my two little girls open their Gifts. Im so grateful for my children. Yes, there are days I crave my ‘freedom’ of not being a parent. But there is nothing that replaces the beauty and growth that parenting brings. Christmas becomes so much fuller with little ones.

    My favorite Christmas gift was the one my mother gave me last year of this (what I then thought) really ugly snow(wo)man that had a tiny snow baby inside of it. It was not my taste at all but she knew my husband and I were starting to try and have a baby. I conceived my son in January and as the year has passed by, and I gave birth to him this past September, and enjoyed the greatest gift of all, that is him these past months, it has sat on my nightstand and with each passing day it grows more beautiful to me. I look forward to giving it to a friend who also is trying to conceive some day.

Now it’s a tradition we have shared with others and continue ourselves. Something so simple and enjoyed by everyone.

    Merry Christmas!! One of my favorite things is the nabi2 tablet– we bought one for my husband last summer, because he is so ROUGH on his electronics- always dropping them- so I did some research and ordered him a nabi2 tablet– it is made especially for KIDS, and can take rough handling, but is still a top of the line Android tablet!!

My son and family had it matted and framed for me and gave it to me for Christmas! I love it and reminds me everyday how much I miss him….but remember all the great memories he gave me.

    My favorite gift I’ve ever received would have to be handmade art from my husband. He’s an incredible artist and graphic designer. Every year that we were together he would put together a piece of art on canvas that meant something special to us. My favorite being a special painting from the year we got engaged. Gifts with meaning and memories are so beautiful and you can’t beat a one-of-a-kind gift.

    My first year living abroad, as a wide-eyed 21-year-old English teacher in China, I received a box in the mail from my sister. Inside were crammed a Christmas tree and handmade wire ornaments. In a burst of holiday spirit (=madness…), I decorated my small apartment and invited all 200ish of my college students over for an open house. It was crazy and wonderful and my sister’s thoughtful give was the impetus.

    My favorite Christmas gift that we received as a family would have to be a handpainted ornament given to us by a friend. She did such a beautiful job and it fits us to a T. I love putting it on the tree each year.

    I’d have to say, the best family gift that I ever gave- was to a family in need. They had a small list of things that they ‘wanted/ needed’. Christmas tree, lights, ornaments, books, and a sweater for each of them (four). So, I went out and got everything on their list! That was better than ANY gift I could have gotten, all throughout my life.

    Last year, my parents made my husband, brother, sister-in-law, and me a cookbook of recipes mt brother and I grew up with as kids. For the last couple of years they had been collecting recipes and writing them down (since most of them were in their heads) and cooking/baking them and photographing them for the book. I use the book all the time now and it always makes me feel like I’m right at home cooking with them as child. My favorite page is the banana bread page since my mom took a photo of recipe we always used–stains and batters splatters included. Such a thoughtful and memorable gift.
