25 Awesome Gifts For Kids

25 Awesome Gifts for Kids
The countdown to Christmas is on! We are keeping our Christmas fairly low key this year; we’re trying to minimize our “stuff”. Our boys have each picked out one thing that they really want, and then we will get them all a shared gift. In my time as a blogger my family has had the opportunity to try out a LOT of toys.

Lassig Trolley luggage for kids

My 5 year old was so proud to pack his own suitcase all by himself. He was so proud of having his own suitcase that during our Thanksgiving vacation, he meticulously put away his clothes into his Lassig Trolley Suitcase each night!

We love the extra pocket in the front. It was perfect for storing his socks and toothbrush!
