Welcome to my 2018 gift guide! I know that I posted about my family taking a trip and not actually giving each other gifts. This is true! We are not giving our kids anything for Christmas from us and we are not giving gifts to each other. That doesn’t mean Santa isn’t coming, though! Our elf on the shelf, Layla, will also bring a few gifts before we take off on our #MerryPoiriers adventure!
I love shopping, almost as much as I love breathing, so a gift guide is a super fun post for me even if I’m not actually buying everything on it.
Sophia L O V E S lego friends. She spends hours each week building lego friends environments and playing with them. Maybe she will be an engineer when she grows up.. or an architect!
This lego set reminds me of Kinex, did y’all ever play with those? For Sophia, the larger the lego set, the happier she is!
Another thing Sophia is DYING for is a Pomsies. Like, what? I had to google them! HA! Then we saw some when we were in Best Buy yesterday and she got SOOOOO excited!!! We already picked on up for her stocking!!
Another thing she has asked for is a planner (kid wants to be like her mommy!). She hasn’t specified between a regular planner or a bullet journal… I use both. These won’t fit in her stocking though, so maybe her elf will bring one before we head out for our trip.
Sophia’s Christmas list hasn’t been super big this year (I think because she knows we aren’t buying gifts). Other things she loves to play with right now are LOL Surprise Dolls, Shopkins, and Littlest Pet Shops.
Gifts for Olivia
Olivia is easy to buy for these days. She mostly wants gift cards, manicures, and make up or clothes. A definite plus side to the teenage years!
Gifts For Andy
Andy hates gifts. He hates receiving them, opening them (esp in front of people), and he also hates spending money on himself. He has zero problem overspending on the kids, or me, but I can’t get him to even buy new sneakers until his are falling apart. So, his list (from me) is mostly clothes!
So, he really needs new sneakers and I imagine a new pair will show up either right before our trip or as soon as we get back. I have to be sneaky about it.
Once on his birthday I bought him 3 new pairs of shoes and 5 new outfits. It was so fun!! He was so thankful but also like WHYYYY KANDICE WHYYYYY hahaha!
I am a sucker for sweaters on a hot guy. So I buy them for Andy every time I buy him clothes. 🙂 Because he is SO CUTE in a sweater, I want him to wear one every day when he’s not in his army uniform.
I would also love to get him a 6pack bag. The 3 container backpack would be perfect. He’s bulking right now and always forgets his food at home in the fridge. This would probably make life a lot easier for him!
My wishes for Christmas gifts… I’m having a hard time really thinking about what I’d like to have. *shrug*
I am DYING for these APL sneakers. Amazon doesn’t carry this style so I linked a different pair of APL sneakers below in case you want to check them out. You can purchase these glorious calf hair, leopard print sneaks for yourself right here.
Really, I think those are the only two things on my list!
