1. Moss Terrarium, $38 This is so simple, affordable, and pretty, too.
I’m terrible at putting together gift guides; I always collect fun items (the Christmas catalogs have already started arriving!) and then I forget about them until well after Christmas. So, this year, I figure, what the heck, I’ll just post things when I see them.
Dr. Drip Organic Coffee ($9 for five). This would be a good stocking stuffer.
This marble wall coaster toy made me smile ($30); its a little advanced for Alex, but, I know he’ll love this in a year. I have a friend with a four year old who would love it!
Tim and I were at odds over this scratch off map ($24); I thought it was cool and Tim thought it was lame. I could see it being fun to use the map with Alex and scratch of places we’ve read about in National Geographic or in novels or wherever. Well traveled friends and relatives could scratch off places they’d been.
