The Great Pretenders sponsored this great Secret Santa gift idea for our Holiday Gift Guide this year.
My family is very large and we have a very close-knit extended family. As the years have progressed we realized that our families could not afford the price or the time of everyone getting a present and opening them all at our holiday celebrations. It just takes too much time to hand out and open all of those presents. That is why we have moved to Secret Santa drawings. Now that there is a third generation we now have three separate drawings. We draw for my parents generation, my generation, and finally my son’s generation. The past few years I have struggled to come up with a unique present for the babies in the family, but not this year! I have found the perfect Secret Santa gift for infants!
The Perfect Secret Santa Gift – Mieya & Alvin
I have struggled to find the perfect gift because I did not want to steal the thunder from Santa or their parents by buying something that they might have gotten for their children. I also had the issue of coming up with some thing that meets the budget that we are given for the presents. The value of the gift was chosen so that none of the kids felt like they were not getting as nice of a present. It was also set so that as a family we did not feel like we were spending a ton of money on everyone’s gifts.
During my research I came across The Great Pretenders and fell in love. Thankfully they decided that they would love to work with me for our Holiday Gift Guide this year because I am in LOVE. I requested the Mini Alvin the Elephant Gift Set to sample and review because I love elephants. This gift set is so cute because it comes with a little Alvin toy, as well as a storybook to read with your child. I am one who loves books that have stuffed animals that go along with them. The reason I love them so much is because it gives the child a link to the story and gives them something to hold and play with during the story.
Alvin is great for Raiden because he has a soft body that is easy for him to hold as well as a nice rubber head that is perfect for my teething little boy.
