First, I’d like to mention an Honorable Mention.
I mean, just look at it. I’m a mother to 4, soon to be 5, children aged 5 and under. Of course I’d mention this.
It’s pretty much kid heaven. And it lives inside. Which means there is no bug repellent, no bath time, no snow boots required.
But, I’m thinkin’ NO.
Thanks, Concierge Mom for not just this awesome idea, but for putting together such an amazing list of gift ideas. And for making me wish my husband either made a lot more money or wouldn’t lose an appendage to a wood saw in about 2 seconds flat.
That leaves us with the winner.
I just have not been able to get over this one. That’s how I knew it was the ONE.
It was a very early entry, and while there have been a lot of good ideas that have crossed my bloggy path since then, this one stands alone.
Bao Bao Bear by Bunnies By The Bay.
Incredibly, I received one of these darling little fellows in the mail just yesterday. As a gift for
myself Vivienne (thank you, Kelly!! I’d squeeze ya if I could!) And it’s even more snuggly, soft and adorable in person. If that’s even possible.
Between the ladybug embroidered on the foot, the red thread blanket clutched in it’s arm and the name Bao Bao, it’s the perfect gift for any child, but especially one adopted from China.
So there you have it. The first winner of the search for the perfect Christmas gift 2009 is Maia from Wanderer’s Daughter. Who is now richer by one $25 Amazon gift card.
See y’all tomorrow.
And have your ideas ready. We’ll be tackling ideas for 4 to 7 year olds.
