We spend months in search of the latest and greatest affordable natural and organic products for this holiday roundup. We scour through lists of eco friendly gifts. We search everything from expos to the online world to television, magazines and emails we receive from companies in search of the holiday products we know your family will use and want. Another important factor? Your children will need to fall in L-O-V-E with these products!
Our list includes natural and organic gifts under $10 that are fun, trendy and your kids will actually use. We also want to better our environment and our planet and we know it starts with our littler ones who are being educated constantly in schools. So we seek to find better quality products for competitive prices.
This year, I'm making our holiday guide even sweeter with your chance to win many of the products featured here on our list! We've got giveaways for tweens, teens, boys, girls and even YOU! You'll want to keep checking back to make sure you're not missing out on any of the great giveaways, recipes, or gift ideas this season!
Also check out our past issue for Easter Basket Stuffers that would also go well as stocking stuffers.

Lemonade Set (Begin Again) My two year old loves a tiny Tupperware set that her daycare teacher has. She plays with it for hours. When I went to look for one similar to it, I couldn't find anything! This Lemonade Set from Begin Again has been great! She loves filling up the ice cubes and making her own "water only" lemonade. It's also made from recycled materials and comes in bright yellow. $15-19
Fashion Angels Design Kit (Fashion Angels): My daughter has fallen in love with the washi tape/duct tape craze and has notebooks full of fashion designs she draws. When we left for Hawaii we gave her this to keep her busy. We found a large set at Costco for only $15, but you can find this set for under $20 at a lot of stores. I also love that I can throw off of her used designs into the recycle bin. $20
