Delilah and I were opening her advent calendar today and realized that Santa will make his stop here in exactly 10 days….wait, what? Where did December go? I’m not sure why I felt I still had a ton of time but this advent calendar has me feeling a little behind and reminded me that I really need to get my Holiday shopping in gear. Is it me or does having a 5 month old babe cause time to get away from you? The hubby and I have lined up Gigi to babysit Delilah on Saturday so that we can make a day of it and get our shopping game on. I’m so excited for this year, Delilah is at the perfect age and makes Christmas morning feel magical.
This year we have decided to incorporate other items into Delilah’s Christmas list in addition to the fun games and toys that she has so carefully placed on her Santa list. We are thrilled to share with you a few of our favorite styles from Stride Rite that will make a perfect gift and Holiday essential for your babe. If you are looking to give a gift this season that will make your special tot grin from ear to ear, gift them with colorful kicks from Stride Rite that are stylish, comfortable and too cool for school!
We are so in love with the snoot this year. Wondering wear the name “snoot” came from? It’s a genius combo of the beloved sneaker and protective boot that together creates perfect footwear for Winter outdoor play. Delilah was so excited to see her bright colored snoot when she opened up her Stride Rite Box! She insisted on wearing them around the house because they felt so cozy and are of course the prettiest shade of hot pink and purple. The snoot is lighter and more compact than the normal snow boot maximizing comfort for your babes day of play. This sneaker boot is water resistant, insulated and fleece lined to keep tootsies warm in the coldest weather. The adjustable closures at the top of the snoot make it super easy for Delilah to put her snoots on all by herself, without mamas help. You can shop the snoot in many different colors and fashions, too!
The Elsie Ballet Flat is another favorite around these parts. It’s the perfect flat for babe to wear everyday with a casual pair of denim skinnies, cute tee and can also be worn as an elegant dress shoe for Holiday festivities, we are all about versatility! Delilah loves the fit of these as they don’t slip off her heel due to its elastic gore around the top. The lightweight sole of these shiny ballet beauties makes for maximum comfort and flexibility.
If you have an active kiddo like we do, the Made2play Cannan A/C Sneaker is a must have! Delilah has been everywhere in this sneaker and I mean everywhere, from the beach to the playground. The comfy memory foam, anti-stink insoles and easy-on-straps make this the perfect shoe for kiddos who love to run, jump and play. We call this Delilah’s school shoe, knowing that whatever activity she partakes in this shoe will suit her well and keep her feet protected, comfortable and at the end of the day will wash easy. Lets be real mamas, if it doesn’t wash well then… um no thank you!
Whether you are looking for a special gift or just shopping for babe essentials, you can’t go wrong with these styles from Stride Rite. Comfortable, durable, and affordable style is where it’s at this season! Happy shoe shopping!
