Gift Ideas for KidsPeapodMats are a MUST HAVE product in every home with a baby or training toddler! Feel free to read my review here of these excellent waterproof bed pads to get to know their amazing quality and characteristics.



Sleepy Owl
Sleepy Owl, natural skincare products for baby are a must have for new parents! Along with helping Moms overcome their struggles with common baby ailments, Sleepy Owl skin remedies have also treated cradle cap, diaper rashes and eczema. We still have these products in our home and use them on a regular basis (on the WHOLE family!).


Gift IdeasSleeping Baby Inc is the home of the Zipadee-Zip Swaddle Transition solution! The Zipadee-Zip was originally created for a little girl who refused to sleep without being swaddled 😉 It’s meant for babies 3 months and older and it provides a woomb-like environment, but with room to push up, roll over, and wiggle around safely. The slight resistance in the “wing-span” helps a baby self-soothe and sleep better than they would in a traditional sleep sack or PJs.


stylish and unique onesies and t-shirts for kidslilspeak’s clothing line empowers the population of tiny developing humans to proudly represent the small repertoire of phrases they actually know and use everyday. From the wisdom and simplicity of “NO” to the highly introspective “I’m hungry”, young kids of all ages can enjoy true expressive freedom in a modern age of the itsy bitsy individual.

  • Elva Roberts

    Girls love anything as long as it is about Barbie. I can vouch for this as both my grandchildren and Greatgrandchildren(girls) love any thing connected to HER.

    • Oh Elva – I truly do appreciate your comment, but I’m not sure I agree with you! My daughter isn’t into Barbie at all. But yes, you are right, many girls are.

  • Treen Goodwin

    Great ideas … thanks its hard sometimes to buy for little ones who have everything :0

  • Eldon Lai

    Great gift ideas, maybe another idea is a monthly toy subscription box.

  • Laurie P

    Hey I’ve been looking for some great teacher gift ideas, lots of goodies here!!

    • Thanks for your comment 🙂 I can’t wait to get MORE ideas up soon!

  • Yuen Ch

    Great Idea’s For a Baby Shower! Thank You!

  • Darlene W

    Great ideas, they can give you the inspiration to put your own twist on them

  • DARLENE W

    I really like the DIY microwave bean bags

  • WisteriaGirl

    I love the craft for teachers. I know that I spent a pretty penny on Sara’s teachers at year end and I actually think that handmade gifts are so much more appreciated.

    • Teachers do appreciate handmade gifts 🙂 They are made with love.

  • April Farley

    I love these gift ideas! Each are unique in their own right. I especially love the ideas for end of school year. Very sweet!

    • They are all unique ideas – that is what I’m trying to go for – thank you 🙂

  • Cheryl

    I love the Sugar Bush Fairies door for my tree!

  • cole mckinnon

    I agree that teacher’s prefer hand-made gifts from their students. It’s so easy for a parent to purchase something, but it’s not all that meaningful. Like others, I like the Sugar Bush Fairies, all of them. Now that it is my granddaughters in school, rather than my child, I seem to take more care in supporting their teachers and making sure they feel appreciated. I think it’s because my life is not so hectic and I have more time to pay attention to the important things in life.

    • I truly think that is the true beauty of being a Grandparent! All of the life’s day to day hustle bustle is gone and you can focus 100% on the people you love, right? You sound like an AMAZING Grandparent and your Grandchildren are truly lucky to have you!

      • cole mckinnon

        Thank you.

  • cole mckinnon

    I love the idea of a fully illustrated book, a CD to sing along and an app that plays an animation on your computer. What a fantastic idea.

  • Amy Lovell

    Just purchased a birthday banner for my grandchild. Love to give something he has not seen anywhere before. Surprise. surprise.

  • Elva Roberts

    I think this Flipstick is a wonderful gift idea. This would be an ideal gift for anyone who likes to walk and be able to rest for a while, for example

  • Magelica

    Thank you Multi-Testing mommy, you rock!

  • kathy downey

  • Elva Roberts

    Snappy Towels sell towels with snaps so they really cover-up when necessary-wonderful for the pool and/or the beach-such a simple yet wonderful idea for modest people.

  • Elva Roberts

    Sleepy Owl products must be excellent products when you purchased them for your baby and are still using them for the family. That is a ringing endorsement.+

  • Elva Roberts

    Kidspot features Unique gifts for children with a free personalized name on them. Isn’t this a wonderful gift for any child? I would think so because I think children love to see their name on their toys and Possessions.

  • dixie

    So many good websites to choose from!

  • Elva Roberts

    Posterjack is a Company that helps you to keep special moments frozen in time forever with their special posters. This is a wonderful thing to do for people.

  • Elva Roberts

    ‘The Book with No Pictures’ seems to be an interesting and delightful book for young children. It has a curious name for starters. Just gets you interested at once.

  • Elva Roberts

    Mommies First is a wonderful company that sends new mommies a box each month for the low price of $30. This new company includes items, as I understand it, for both Mom and Baby. This would be a relatively inexpensive gift to give to a young mother for a few months from a family member or special friend.

  • elizamatt

    I do like the sound of the Sleepy Owl, natural skincare products for baby. These sound really nice 🙂

  • ElaineB2

    I think that the Peapodmat is a great development in water proof pads.

    • I honestly cannot imagine life without our Peapodmats! They have made such a HUGE difference in comfort while sleeping with protection as well as leaks in beds!
