The Golden Bible New Testament A Giant Golden Book
The Little White horse by Elizabeth Goudge
Anything by Rumer Godden that I don’t already have :
I recently bought this one:
Here’s A List of Gifts That have been a hit in our home :
Butterfly wings, Simple, inexpensive and my girls still play with them three years later people- three.
Battery Operated Toothbrushes I know, it’s terribly practical, arguably worse than socks, and maybe my children are odd but they love getting these. I also buy my girls new hair ties, clips, brushes and the men in my life may get combs & shaving supplies (lame or genius? You decide).
Water Colored Coloring pencils for the older children and Crayons for the younger ones. I also get new pencil sharpeners and They usually get a coloring book or a new notebook to go with them. Cute Bookbags and pencil cases are always nice to have (I love goldfish) I found this at TheCrownedRabbit (I love etsy):
Blocks, and if you already have blocks (most of us do) just sneak some of the old blocks from the toy room, take a sharpie, and make them into buildings, and ta-da new blocks!:
Balancing toys. I love balancing toys and so do babies, toddlers and older children. The great thing about them is you can just store them with the blocks. I have bought a few sets in the past and I found these on etsy:
so cute, admittedly pricey, but cute! There are lots of other (more affordable) on etsy. (Be careful when buying online sometimes it’s hard to tell the scale and they turn out to be choking hazard size. )
Piggy Banks. The piggy banks I bought last year are still in use. I like the ones divided up into save, spend, give. You can put little treats inside too.
These Holy Heroes CDs are really wonderful for boys or girls, all my children love listening to them, and I’ve learned a lot too.
Still got nothing? What activities are they in? My girls are in gymnastics so new leotards, silly scrunches are always welcomed. Movies are also fun to get and of course, Books, I always get them Books. But that’s for another post . .
And for the record, socks make a great gift.

I’m working on Jesse Tree Ornaments for my etsy store: Marginalia Books. I hope to have them available there by advent.
Do you have advent traditions? We usually do an advent wreath, Jesse tree and we celebrate St. Lucy’s day with saffron buns.
Finding out how many states you’ve sold to is exciting, here’s how:
You can then use that info to make an interactive sales map here Just click on the states you’ve sold to and it colors it in. You can share it on facebook and twitter instantly or you can download it as a JPG to share on your other social media platforms. Here’s mine. I only need five more states!
Here is my first attempt at selling books by color. I feel conflicted with this marketing approach. On one hand the booklover in me cringes and on the other hand, the interior designer in me smiles at the soft pastel palette with just a dash of geometric flare. At any rate, this book bundle is up for sale, and is available here. Don’t worry I added the titles in the description!
We Use Time Life Library of Art Books for our Art Studies:
These books are perfect for picture study, I love using them! Each term we study a new artist and I bring out a new art book for our studies. It’s nice to bring the books out one at a time, instead of having them always available, the change seems to spark more interest in the term’s artist. I only have one left at my etsy shop but they are also available on amazon
