If you are anything like me, you are always on the lookout for cute, fun, and functional things for kids. If you follow me on Facebook you know that we are trying to keep Christmas simple this year and in many ways that means trying to get our gifts for the boys to be something they will enjoy as well as something they need and use anyways.

I recently had the opportunity to review the Construction Plate and Utensils from Uncommon Goods. This definitely hit both fun and functional out of the park. Although a little unwieldy in my toddlers hands, they try pretty hard to make it work. I think my favorite part of this is the “pusher” that you can use to push food right onto your spoon. Brilliant!

Everyone knows I have all boys in my family but was recently blessed with the addition of an itty-bitty lovely little niece. I’m not really up on what constitutes great gifts for girls just yet. Of course I take any opportunity possible to shower the girliest of girly gifts upon her and UncommonGoods’ Lucy’s Socks deliver girly in spades!

Of course they don’t just have great gifts for kids here, they have wonderful things for everyone! I’m pretty smitten with their awesome collection of Owl gifts (see here!). I know I’m not the only one who’s kind of loving the owl craze right now!

    Wait, did I not answer the right question with my original comment? Doesn't look like it, lol. I'm blaming mom-brain (so tired). Well, I realllllly want to be entered correctly, because I have fingers, toes, and eyes crossed (LOVE Uncommon Goods!). So, the gift I love to give at the holidays… cookies and scratch off lotto tickets, hahaha. A tradition my Italian grandparents started when I was a child, and while it's tacky, it's still super fun. And even if it's a losing ticket, the cookies are a comfort. šŸ™‚
