3rd Annual Holiday Gift Guide

Posted on December 06, 2014 by Amanda Holliday | 1 Comment

It's that time of year again—time for our annual Holiday Gift Guide where we share what items we are loving for the kiddos and ourselves. Maggie, Melissa and I have each put together a few of our favorites things for newborns, toddlers, school age kids, expectant moms and all moms. Below are link to all the items. 


Gifts for newborns. Let's be honest—newborns don't need much. They won't remember this holiday season and can't open gifts. Plus, mom and dad have probably already been bombarded with so many gifts for little one. So keep the gifts small and go for more unique items that you can't find everywhere.  

(1) Birth Announcement pillow ; (2) Rattle ; (3) Cate and Levi Stuffed Animal

Gifts for toddlers. The challenge here is finding gifts the kids will like just as much as (hopefully more than) the box. Melissa's little ones love building things and then knocking them down and creating things from art to buldings.  

(4) Lil Paint Pods ; (5) Janod Kubix - 100 Dominos ; (6) Memory Game ; (7) Wooden Easel  ; (8) Mini Piano

Gifts for school age kids. Maggie's boys are loving anything they can ride or build. This is also a great age for kids to learn a new skill, like playing the guitar.

(9) Spot It Junior Animals ; (10) Ezy Roller Riding Machine ; (11) Snap Circuits Extreme SC-750 Electronics Discovery Kit ; (12) Confetti Guitar

Gifts for expectant moms. These are things I am loving or covetting this holiday season. A pregnancy pillow is a must for any expectant mom. If she doesn't have one, buy her one now! This was my first pregnancy purchase and worth every penny. The other items are gift to spoil mom-to-be that she might not buy herself.

(13) Pregnancy Pillow ; (14) Slippers ; (15) Hatch to Hospital gift set ; (16) Solly Wrap ; (17) Character Necklace

Gifts for all moms. Make mom's life easier with a robot vacuum. You can never go wrong with coffee, a cute new bag or sunglasses.

(18) iRoomba Robot Vacuum ; (19) Coffee Subscription ; (20) The Berliner Satchel ; (21) Boots ; (22) Sunglasses 

What are you and your kiddos wishing for this year?

Holiday Inspired Real Food Recipes

Posted on December 23, 2013 by Amanda Holliday | 0 Comments

Happy Holidays! We just can’t wait to celebrate this festive season with our little ones, and we bet you can’t either.  And what better way to do so than with some Holiday Pouch Recipes?

We have a fantastic new recipe that is certain to be a party pleaser for kids and adults. Charlotte March’s Pear and Cranberry Puree will knock the stockings off your wee one, and, when topped with a little bubbly, makes for a great treat for mom, dad, grandma, maybe even Saint Nick (a recipe for more presents?). And the great thing about this puree is not only that it is delicious, but also healthy.  Indeed, it’s stamped with our Real Food badge of approval.


A few other Holiday Pouch Recipes you might want to try, which are also Real Food Pouch Recipes, include:  

Apple Pie A La Mode

Appled Yams

Pumpkin Delight

My Little Sweet Potato

Butternut Squash Smoothie

We’d love to hear from you if you have any Holiday Pouch Recipes to share. We know you are such a talented and creative group!

As the year draws to a close we can’t help but get a bit reflective. We started this company a little over a year ago, and it has been such an amazing ride so far. Of course, that is all because of you. We are so thankful for each and every one of you, and the incredible support you have shown us.  We couldn’t do it without you. Honest and sincere.

We wish you and your families a wonderful and memory-filled holiday season.

In continued appreciation,

Maggie & Melissa

PS: Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our 10 Day Real Food Pledge, starting January 6th. (It’ll make you feel better about all those Christmas cookies and holiday cheer.)
