I’m not really into giving small kids impractical gifts for Christmas. In fact, I’ve almost always made a point to give my nieces and nephews great books or something else that’s practical and useful and perhaps educational.
My fondest Christmas memory from childhood was the first year I made Christmas cookies with my grandmother. On my 6th birthday, we made petit coat tails (a shortbread cookie with delicate icing flours), Russian tea cakes, sugar cookies, and Esses (“S”-shaped).
I felt so grown-up wearing an apron and using the icing bag on the delicate cookies.
Child to Cherish, a company that is excellent at creating innovative memory-making keepsakes, created a new “Little Baker” suitcase collection designed by Patricia Lowe. There’s 6 suitcases available: 3 that are perfect gifts from parents or aunts and uncles (boy, girl, Christmas), and 3 that are specifically designed as gifts from grandmas (boy, girl, Christmas).
We got to try their adorable red Christmas-themed suitcase with tree, gingerbread man, and star cookie cutter shapes, a toddler-sized wooden rolling pin, and a toddler-sized wooden spoon. The suitcase also includes a red apron with the sweet embroidery “Little Baker,” and 4 cookie recipes for Christmastime.
I’m looking forward to trying some tasty gluten-free cookie recipes with the tools in the Little Baker Suitcase later this month, and every year around Christmas.
This is a wonderful gift to enrich lasting memories around the holidays with your child. The Child to Cherish Little Baker Suitcase retails for $42.99.
Child to Cherish not only creates wonderful gifts to capture memories, but they have gift options to help make the earth a little greener: Plant a Christmas Tree for Me. Their mini greenhouse is complete with a Christmas tree pellet and instructions. All you need to add is water and sunlight. Simple, right?
At 3 and 1/4inches tall with a red-ribbon topper, it’s perfect to hang on the tree the night before Christmas. The Plant a Christmas Tree for Me retails for $6.99.
One winner will receive a Plant a Tree for Me, (retail value $6.99). Stay in the know and win a Nest Egg by becoming a Child to Cherish fan on Facebook.
