3 Great Gifts You Can Order Online

For Babies, Tweens, And In-Betweens

I went shopping for gifts today in my pajamas. Not like this (though, I do admit to driving the kids to school in my flannels once or twice-ish).

But like this. All comfy and satany. Typo. I meant satiny, but I'll leave it, since they're both true. I was a devil with the family credit card today. Satan in Satin. That sounds about right.

Online shopping is the way to go, without, you know, actually go-ing anywhere. Here are the gifts I bought for the littles in my life today, without even having to put on shoes or brush my hair.

For Tweens: What's on my 12-year-old niece's wish list this year? An iphone-5 and a horse. I settled on a sporty headband from Under Armour, nail polish and decals, a tween mag, and these cool personlized Mabel's Labels for tweens! They come in two designsSassy and Sportyso they're perfect for both boys and girls.


For Toddlers: My nephew lives overseas, and finding something small to send in the mail poses a challenge. I ordered a Name Your Tune CD for him today . . . and one for my daughter. She has the second version and LOVES it, so I thought the original would be a perfect stocking stuffer.


For Babies (And Their Parents): This book is a great gift for any new or expecting parents on your list. You can buy The Baby Signing Bible: Baby Sign Language Made Easy in stores, but don't worry, you don't need to go putting on shoesyou can order it online, as well. I'm also giving one away at Forever In Mom Genes, so pop over and enter to win a copy.

Happy online-pajama-coffee-sipping-shoeless-ratty-hair-shopping everyone!

*Notice how "teens" is not checked off my list? That's because there are no teens in my family. Not yet, anyway. But next year my niece turns thirteen. Abercrombie and Hollister have online stores, right? Perfect.
