Laurence King Publishing holiday offerings

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  i was not paid to write this review, all opinions are my own.

I think we have 40 more days until Christmas!!  Okay people don't panic that is still a lot of time to go shopping, wrap gifts, decorate, bake, plan Christmas dinner, go caroling, volunteer at the school's Christmas program, donate to toys for tots, find a new hiding space for the gifts since the kids figured out where they were last year and you had to lie and say those were for other kids....  Okay people I lied PANIC PANIC PANIC!!  Only teasing lol, take a deep breather and remember what the holidays are really about, celebrating the birth of Jesus!!  

Now I am going to sound like a bit of a hypercritical here, because yes I know the true meaning of Christmas....  But I am still that mom that loves seeing her kids face light up come Christmas morning.  I put  a lot of love and time into their gifts.  That is why I put together this gift guide each year, to hopefully give other parents ideas on what to get their loved ones.
Next up with have Laurence King Publishing Holiday Offerings, I have a family of readers so this one was really fun for me!!
