I’ve seen a lot of great gift guides going around lately and have loved seeing the ideas people have for the bookworm – and other people’s lists are pretty excellent! While I definitely will be asking for some of those mentioned items for myself for Christmas, the main things we will need are items to get us through the winter as we continue to quarantine while we wait for a vaccine for COVID19.
I’m sure a lot of you are giving gifts to people who are in similar situations (or you are in that situation yourself and need help making your list), so I thought I would put together a gift guide for the quarantined family.
FOR THE MOVIE LOVING FAMILY
FOR THE BOOK LOVING FAMILY
Everyone has heard of Book of the Month (and other similar services) for adults, but did you know that Amazon has book boxes for kids? I have my 4 year old signed up and we love getting the box each month! There are several books to pick from each month and you can skip whenever you want.
FOR THE JIGSAW PUZZLE LOVING FAMILY
One of the hardest things about loving puzzling is the amount of space that it takes up, but a good puzzle board takes away those issues! Especially for people who have pets and kids, it’s just not safe to leave out a work in progress – pieces get lost, the most frustrating thing ever. There are other alternatives to higher priced puzzle boards, like this roll up mat. Below are some great quality puzzles that will be fun for the whole family!
FOR THE NTI FAMILY
NTI is not ideal for any of the parties involved, but it’s especially not fun because of the noise factor in the home. Add in multiple kids watching their lessons at once and…it can get a little crazy. Sudio makes some great headphones for ears of all sizes, and this week, they are having their Black Friday sale! If you use the code JENNASTOP10 you can get an additional 10% off, too!
FOR THE FAMILY OF BOARD GAME ENTHUSIASTS
This game has been so much fun for us, and helps kids work on their dexterity! We laugh a lot while playing it and get some movement as we chase the pieces around that miss.
FOR THE FAMILY WITH ACTIVE TODDLERS
One of the hardest things about quarantine with active kids in the house is making sure those growing kids get the exercise they need for both their bodies and their minds. This scavenger hunt game combines both of those things!
