Fab Top Five: Holiday Gift Guide

Fab Top Five Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season is in full swing and the Fab Top Five is ready to celebrate. This year we decided to do a combined Holiday Gift Guide. A gift guide filled with suggestions from five different moms is a great way to check out a variety of gifts for everyone in your family. My section of the gift guide is dedicated to Geeky & Girly Toddlers. Why? It’s inspired by my Zoe of course. With all the focus on STEM programs, toys and resources for girls, it seems some people are totally against the old school girly things like dolls. I am not that mom. I have allowed Zoe to explore a variety of toys and activities and the end result is this: She is a Geeky & Girly Girl! Zoe loves dolls, dollhouses and dressing up. But guess what? She also loves cars, trains and chess. She pulls her dad’s model cars apart and attempts to put them back together. I feel sorry for those cards but my point is it is perfectly ok to enjoy both sides of the spectrum. 

On any given day, you can find us cooking up all sorts of experiments in the morning and then playing dollhouse pretend in the evening with lots of books, Spanish and board games in between.

    This is a fantastic list! I’ve been wanting the Pioneer Woman’s cookbook for quite some time now, I’m definitely encouraged to get it now. The “Favorite Things” list from Oprah was bananas! They completely out did themselves this year. Usually I get one item but this year I’m finding it hard to choose. Gaah! I may end up with 2 items instead. Thanks for compiling these, I’m sharing.

    Love this idea and from reading each ladies’ blog the gifts seem fitting. I love that you’re allowing Zoe to be free to play and explore based on her interest. I really want the bag and stainless steel cup in Mimi’s list.
