We can’t forget the kid in our lives this holiday season! We know there are more choices than we know what to do with and it gets overwhelming to sort through it all! We’ve started shortening our holiday gift list by asking our kids to choose something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read or make. We also use this gift wish list as a starting point for a shopping trip to buy gifts for Toys for Tots. If we want it, then another kid our age would probably love it too!

Abigail Puppy Stuffed Animal – $15.00 – Benefitting St. Jude Children’s Hospital
100% of proceeds from the sale of this “too cute” stuffed animal benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. My oldest son received a version of St. Jude’s puppy stuffed animal when he was a year old and it quickly became his favorite “lovie” whom he renamed “Roller.” Roller is now 14 years old and I won’t say if he still exists hidden under my son’s pillows (wink! wink!), but I will say I have a soft spot for these stuffed animals.
