Holiday Planning Already?

It’s barely fall making it the perfect time to start planning for the holidays or at least plant the seed with grandparents and other family members.

We all know that space and storage is a premium. As much as our kids love toys and STUFF it’s kind of nice not to have new STUFF to store especially in the madness of the holidays.  (We just spent a large portion of our weekend sorting through STUFF that was cluttering my seven year old’s bookshelf and barely made a dent with her unused-must-keep-forever-and-ever-STUFF.)

The other day a friend asked me if a class counts as a gift. My answer was, of course. Why not offer an experience for your little one vs another toy?

Most class vendors in town will offer gift certificates for classes. Reach out and ask, and then suggest to your gift givers. Gift givers will love a gift that keeps giving especially if they know your child will love it (and if you offer a photo every once in a while too.)

Why not plant the seed now with eager grandparents? Better yet, suggest if they can, to join in on the fun and bring your child to class while you get a little alone time.
