Haba ToyI am trying really hard to not go overboard for Matilda’s first Christmas. I learned from my friends that you set a standard for Christmas with your kids that you have to keep up, lest they be disappointed. So Christmas in our family will be a relatively minimalist affair.

We decided to get Matilda one gift and one gift only. I spent a lot of time looking online and this is what we picked out. Its from Haba, which is one of my favorite toy brands. If you like that stuff, check out my new favorite toy store

    This is a great idea – alas, too late for us, though. (Next year I will rein myself in.)

    I also love Haba and bought Freya a few of their toys from They have good prices (and free shipping on holiday orders.

    Freya’s special gifts is the “Put and Peek Birdhouse” from Manhattan Toy.
