Christmas is coming! And we’re putting together a gift guide

By Robin Dearing

On this Election Day, we here at the Haute Mamas are ignoring politics completely — not because elections aren't important or worthy of discusson, but because we've voted and now it's out of our hands. So vote, if you haven't already. Then while you're waiting for the results, check this out:

Yes, Richie and I are already thinking about Christmas. What do our kids want to get this year? What do we want them to have? What can our budgets afford? What will fit in their stockings hung by the fire with care?

This year my daughter is 12 and Richie’s boys are 6, 5 and 3. We are looking for input. What do you think are good gifts for kids this year?

Should Soren get a Red Ryder BB Gun? Should Jonas get an amp that goes to 11? Should Marek get a pony? What about my tween? Should she get high-heeled boots and red lipstick?

Over the next couple of weeks, Richie and I will be compiling a Christmas gift guide.

What are your guidelines for buying gifts for kids? What are your kids hoping to find under the tree this year? What were your favorite Christmas gifts? What do you love to give to children?

I don’t have kids, but when giving presents to kids I always gave books.  Books let you go to magical places, learn about history and explore the world around you :)  They are still my favorite gifts to give and receive.

I agree, Julie. Books are great gifts. Margaret always gets books for Christmas. What book would you recommend for a 12-year-old girl with a love of thrillers?
