Want. Need. Wear. Read. | First Birthday

want : read : need : wear

the holiday gift giving theme of "want, need, wear, read" dominated social media last year. the ideal to strive for minimalism has captured people that feel overwhelmed with our purchase happy culture. i'm definitely included in this group and have been attempting to declutter our lives for the past year. we still have a long way to go. however, adopting this theme to gift giving will at least help us control what we bring in to our lives.

our little man cub's first birthday in coming up right before christmas so the gift guide is actually a birthday one. want: this drum by plan toys makes the best sounds. their toys are so well made. i'm really happy with the few we have. need: warm baby base layer from the north face. we will put this to good use for outdoor winter activities. wear: this are the cutest corduroy's from sunshine salad on etsy. read: i can't get enough of these baby lit board books. his collection is growing. i love that kingston and both his cousins really enjoy these books. together their ages range from zero to seven. last year the oldest started reading them to the younger two. he is so proud to be reading and teaching his brother and cousin.

xo, beth-ann
