The Cincinnati Moms Blog Holiday Wish List {2016}

We had so much fun putting together our 2016 Holiday Wish List for you! No matter if you are shopping for the holidays or simply looking for a gift throughout the year, our team has some of our favorite gift suggestions to help you out.

This is a sponsored Holiday Wish List brought to you by our line-up of favorite brands. Every last one of these recommendations has the Cincinnati Moms Blog “stamp of approval,” and we personally solicited all companies for inclusion.

Goldfish Swim School

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Goldfish Holiday Package

Goldfish does not just have a passion for kids or a passion for swimming…it’s a passion for changing – even saving – lives by teaching kids to swim.

Here at CMB, we are in love with the Perpetual Lessons model which includes:

  • One life-guard certified instructor for every four children
  • Year-round swim lessons for children 4 months to 12 years and for swimmers of all abilities
  • Curriculum focused on teaching swim and safety skills while building character
  • Flexible scheduling to accommodate even the busiest family’s schedule
  • And much, much more

Giving the experience of swim lessons this holiday season is not only fun, it’s practical and potentially life-saving.

Now through 12/31, take advantage of the Holiday Package which includes 2 months of group lessons, your registration fee, a towel, goggles, and a plush toy for $175 (a $50 savings!). 

The ABC Market

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Vintage Custom Date Book

This gift combines originality with a touch of whimsy.

The ABC Market preserves vintage books by custom-folding the pages into a symbol, word, or date that is important to you. Your wedding date, a birthday, or “gotcha day” would be an awesome gift for someone you love!

Whether something personalized or a vintage booklight, The ABC Market helps you surround yourself with meaningful home decor, reminding you of the things that matter most. 

Art Workshop

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Pottery Wheel for Kids

You really can’t go wrong when giving a child (or adult) in your life an art class experience at the Art Workshop. We love all of the classes, but we are huge fans of the pottery wheel class.

Designed specifically for kids ages 7 and older, this class gets them onto the pottery wheel and teaches them the skills of wedging, centering, pulling, trimming, use of tools and surface techniques. No experience is required and the skills they will master during even one session will leave them feeling a sense of pride in the pieces they are able to create and a solid foundation for continued growth.

The winter session starts January 9th, so it makes the perfect holiday experience to gift!

Trendy Tags Boutique

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Plaid Blanket Scarves

This is a fun way to shop this holiday season! Trendy Tags Boutique is an online/traveling retailer who sells the latest fashion trends at affordable prices. New arrivals go live every Tuesday at 9pm.

To shop, visit their online boutique, (join the FB group) and when you see something you like, comment SOLD with your size and e-mail. It’s a lot of fun, shipping is free and they accept returns.

Currently, you can shop for the plaid blanket scarves (which we highly recommend), but also tunic tops, HOME Ohio, KY and Indiana baseball raglans and more! We also recommend picking something up for yourself while you are at it. Gift cards are also available.

If viewing on mobile, you will need to log in to Facebook and request to join the closed group to shop. 

Miss Nancy's Musikgarten

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Family Music for Toddlers

Attention all grandparents! This is a great gift idea for those little ones in your life!

Moms and Dads, it’s great for you too. Toddlers get plenty of toys around the holiday, but this gift is a unique way to give an amazing bonding AND learning experience to them through singing, moving, dancing, and playing simple instruments together.

Weekly classes are designed for energetic toddlers and feature movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, and spatial exploration.

Family materials for each of the four semesters include a unique CD, parent booklet, and instrument or scarf to continue your musical play at home.

Art Prints Vicky

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Cincinnati Skyline Print

Give someone the gift of the Cincinnati skyline this holiday season!

These semi-gloss prints are that perfect stand-out gift for that person on your list with Cincinnati pride, the person who has traveled and/or lived everywhere and even for that person who is super hard to buy for (we all know a few!) The prints are digital images, created with fade-resistant inks. You can choose a print as small as 5X7, up to 24X36 in size. Have it framed to make an even bigger impression.

We love the Cincinnati print for obvious reasons, but there are plenty of other map and skyline prints to choose from.

Breakout Games

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Gift Cards for an Escape from the Ordinary

Gift your friends or family with a gift card to experience a fun night out to escape the ordinary!

Breakout is an interactive escape game experience that’s fun for families, friends, group dates and colleagues. Spend an hour finding clues and solving puzzles to break out of one of five themed rooms: Island Escape, Kidnapping, Museum Heist, Operation Casino, or Hostage.

Seriously, what a fun, one-of-a-kind gift to give someone in your life! Gift cards are a great way to give an evening of laughter and fun-filled challenges.

Vinyl Chic Boutique

CMB Gift Suggestion::
Mama Mug

The entire CMB team has a little glitter with their coffee in the morning!

These mugs are customizable to reflect the number of children in gift recipient’s life (some of our team even chose to remember angel babies in their numbers.) In addition you can choose the glitter color and make it even more unique. We promise you that coffee tastes significantly better in this fun mug.

And if the “mama” mug just isn’t speaking to you, she does have other vinyl options you can choose from instead as well as various other products. There is something for even the hardest to buy for in this etsy shop.
