When I had my son Henry I was obsessed with the One Step Ahead catalog arriving in the mail. I would go through it and circle all the items I wanted to buy him, the safety items that we had to have for our home, the convenience items to make bath time, bedtime and travel easier. So basically I’d circle everything in the catalog! The catalog is something that my children expect to see in our home and they too circle items they wish for, which makes holiday shopping easier!  Over the years I’ve purchased many items from One Step Ahead! From Christmas items, birthday gifts and winter snow gear!  Maybe it is the teacher in me that loves this online store but whatever it is I’m gathering some great ideas for this holiday season for the little ones in my life! Here are a few items I love this year and that I have my eye on…

Fun Slides Carpet Skates– with the long winter ahead I can see the children having a great time skating around our basement with these carpet skates! They’ll get exercise inside, have fun and stay busy! I’m sure this will be favorite gift this

Kids Toy Dyson Vacuum – my little nephew loves to help vacuum and though this is your classic plastic toy and not necessarily “eco-friendly” it’s realistic, it works and looks just like mama’s! Which I’m sure he’ll love and my experience with toys like this is that they last, they’re used for years and then are handed down to the next child.

Smooth Touch Tablet Fun and Play – my little niece loves her mom’s iPad and so this will help free mom’s iPad up and let her learn animal sounds, letters and shapes and more! She’s two and learning her sounds and because this isn’t expensive but looks like’s mom’s iPad it will be a hit!

Hop Scotch Mat – our basement is roomy and for long winters I think my daughter would really enjoy this mat for playing hop scotch. She loves drawing on the driveway with chalk during the warm months and playing hop scotch but now she can all year long!
