With just over 2 weeks away from Christmas, I can’t believe it how fast it has come. Christmas has always been a special time for us. Family always gets together and there is something so magical about introducing a new baby to the special feeling of the season. They are still so vulnerable and truly believe in all of the spirit and magic.
With Aubrey, Christmas has always been easy because there was just one of him. We only had to shop for one and he was easy to shop for. But, this Christmas will be a bit different. It will be Poppy’s first Christmas, so we want to spoil her, but we have everything that we need from holding on to it with Aubrey. One thing that is different, is that Poppy LOVES to be on the floor rolling and playing. She needed a new activity mat to keep her busy and comfortable.
Rob and I love going to Indigo for a mini date, whether it is sans Aubrey in the afternoon, or when we have a babysitter and go with out kids. The warmth of the books and home decor mixed with a great Starbucks in hand is all we need together to be happy.
Recently, on one of our Indigo Meet-ups after Rob was done work, we saw the Skip Hop Camping Cubs Activity Mat set up amid the beautiful toys in the baby section. Our eyes drew to it thinking it would be the perfect baby’s first Christmas gift. We love the quality of Skip Hop, and know that it stands up to the crazy things that kids will do to their toys. Especially, when we like to plan for at least one other baby to get use out of it. Plus, in a world full of bright baby things, Skip Hop seems to always have a classic minimalist feel which we love. And best of all, Poppy loves it also. We can get a good 30 mins of stuff done at a time, while she hangs out on the Activity mat. That is like a lifetime in baby minutes. Another great feature, is that the toys go from hanging, to being hooked on the mat, and even onto the stroller. Which makes entertaining a baby that much easier.
So, for those of you needing a gift for Baby’s First Christmas, I have teamed up with Indigo and Skip Hop to giveaway one Camping Cubs Activity Mat to a lucky winner. There are TWO ways to enter. Head to the Rafflecopter below to enter, or Click here to find out how to enter on Facebook.
