Happy November to my favorite readers! Did you know that there are only 49 days left until Christmas 2013? Shocking, right?!
I am over the moon excited to announce that I will be launching my first annual It’s An Ordinary Blog Holiday Gift Guide next week. I have searched high and low to find some of the best unique gift ideas for little ones this year. Before I get started, I wanted to share a really great website that I discovered with all of you. eBeanstalk.com offers an extensive selection of toys, books, and activities for children of all ages. I love how easy the ebeanstalk website is to navigate. Their selection is separated by ages and stages so gift givers who are searching for toys for 2 year olds can easily find developmentally appropriate gift ideas and top selling 2 year old toys in one, easy to look through, place. To make gift giving even easier (which is especially beneficial when gifting to the hard to shop for), ebeanstalk has a ‘wish list’ service available free of charge for customers. Beyond that, and perhaps the thing I love the most about this company, are the expert advice and developmental milestones sections of their website. Each offers an array of information for parents and caregivers, which is absolutely incredible. Knowing what to expect in the coming year is especially useful when picking out toys, books, and games for children who are about to celebrate a birthday. Having it all in one, easy to navigate, website is just plain smart.
For parents looking to take a quick, online trip down memory lane, ebeanstalk.com has a classic & retro toys section of their website that has a vast array of classic toys and books for all ages. In the description for each product, the company has outlined the age ranges that would enjoy it best. No matter how you elect to navigate the ebeanstalk website, I’m confident that you’ll find selecting the right gift easier than you could have ever imagined.
I know you’re all wondering what my favorite toy that ebeanstalk offers is…My two year old is really into two things: dolls and using her imagination. She also happens to be pretty smart for her age (or at least I’d like to think that she is) so, naturally, I absolutely love their Modern Doll Family (pictured above), which is recommended for three year olds who love to express their imaginations.
I am so excited to continue sharing great gift ideas and spots with you in the coming weeks. In the meantime, head on over to ebeanstalk.com, take a look around, and then come back to let me know what you thought!
