DIY Stamped Christmas Wrapping Paper!

December 19, 2019

It’s my most favorite time of the year EVER!!! I love to get started early on wrapping all my gifts so I can take my time and actually enjoy it instead of feeling crazy and rushed! I say NO to gift bags during Christmas time and love to use greenery, fun ribbons, and craft paper!

Here is a super easy and fun way to wrap your Christmas presents this season!

Here is what you’ll need…

roll of craft wrapping paper
festive stamps
stamp pad (I used gold and silver)
greenery (1 bundle will go a long way!)
-any rope or ribbon to tie on gift; I love layering and using 2 or 3 on each gift!
-blank tags

You can get EVERYTHING you need at JOANN!

This is such an easy tutorial! It is even a fun one to let the kiddos jump in and help with! Bexley loves helping me stamp the wrapping paper.

Step 1: measure your craft paper for the specific gift you are wrapping, and cut it.
Step 2: lay your cut piece on a flat/hard surface and use your stamp to randomly stamp all around the paper. You can get creative with this step!

Step 3: Let your stamp dry and then wrap your present!
Step 4: Layer up some fun ribbons and wrap your present up!

Step 5: Cut off a few small pieces of the greenery and slip them under the ribbon!
Step 6: Add a gift tag! You can stamp your gift tag, write on it yourself, use a sticker, or even let your kiddos draw a picture on it!
Such an easy way to make your gifts look stunning this year! Remember the key is to have fun and be creative!

Baby Gift Guide!

November 19, 2018

It’s that time of the year again when you have no idea what to buy anyone! Hooray! In honor of Jovie babes first Christmas, I have put together a baby gift guide for all those cute little babies in your life!


  1.  Explore & More Follow-Bee Crawl Toy: My kids have all LOVED this toy! It is so fun to chase around the room when they are learning to crawl! 

  2. Fill and Spill Beaver:  This is adorable and perfect for any baby who loves to take stuff out and put it back in all day long! 

  3. Ball Popper: The snail was just too adorable to pass up, and I was completely sold when I saw that it lights up too!

  4. Roly Poly Owl: Another adorable toy that I couldn’t pass up.  This toy is perfect for when baby is just starting to sit up (and beyond) It also lights up!

  5. Silver Lining Cloud Baby’s View Activity Center: This is Jovie’s “large” gift this year from Santa! I wanted to think of something she actually needed and when I saw this activity center I totally loved the clouds and rainbow! SO cute and practical! 

  6. Looky-Looky Crawl Along Mirror: This is so cute when baby is learning to crawl!  Non-Toys! (Because sometimes it is nice to buy some things that baby actually needs, they don’t know either way!)

  7. Skip Hop Zoo Tuck-Away Bib: This is perfect for the baby bag or to keep in the back of the high chair, and comes in SO MANY adorable animals! 

  8. Skip Hop Zoo Silicone Bib: This is another great bib! I love these because they have a pouch to catch food AND they are so easy to wipe or wash clean.

  9. Fold & Go Silicone Placemat: This is great to store in the baby bag and take to restaurants!  

  10. Premium Burp Cloths: Copper Pearl burp cloths are my all time favorite! Every mama and baby needs them! 

  11. Adorable Bibs: If you are going to wear a bib, why not make it a adorable one???

  12. Muslin Quilt Blanket:  These blankets are my FAV!  So thick, soft and the quality is amazing! It’s such a great gift that baby can use for a really long time! It also comes in so many adorable patterns.


  13. Hooded Towel Set: Because you can never have enough adorable bath towels around! 

    Stocking Stuffers!

  14. B. Toys Rain Glow Squeeze:  This is a adorable little rattle that lights up when you shake it!

  15. Accordion Zebra:  Squishy and cuddly, and all around CUTE! It squeaks, crinkles and lets your baby make their own music!

  16. Skip Hop Bandana Buddies Activity Toy: These come in so many different cute animals to pick from and have several different activities on them for baby.  These are great to hook to the carseat or stroller!

  17. LouLou Lollipop Teether: Every baby needs a teether (OR TEN!) So why not add one of these in their stocking??

  18. Peek & Play Activity Book: I love the vibrant colors of this book mixed with the black and white.  A book, and stand up play house in one!
