Sometimes, you just want fun or unique gifts – so today’s post is a collection of “other” ideas for Christmas gifts.
1. Homeschool Gear: Looking for a homeschooling t-shirt? Check out my t-shirt store. There’s something for everyone in the family – Mom, Dad, baby, and kid!
2. Young Builder’s Tool Set: This set from Montessori Services – a company that specializes in providing quality toys and products for kids in the Montessori method – includes a toolbox and a full set of working tools that are miniaturized for small hands of a child. There’s a saw, hammer, sand block, hand drill, level, safety glasses, and tape measure. After 2 years of use, my son still LOVES his tool set and runs to find his tools whenever Daddy needs help!
Where to Buy: Visit the Montessori Services website for this and all their other great products. Please keep in mind that shipping times are longer due to this being a US company.
