This Christmas was a WHIRLWIND. We ended up decorating the house and getting our tree on the night of the 23rd – better late than never, right?! With all the chaos of hosting, my hubby and I decided to forego gifts for one another. We just bought a new house. And a new minivan (#momlife). And went through a huge move. Presents could wait. Once the dust settled, I was able to pick out a few things for myself. Although to be honest, they’re mostly gifts that benefit the whole family!
Here are a few of my favorite gifts I received this holiday, along with a few of the items I chose to spoil myself with:

Munki Munki Pajamas
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen this post. I got so many comments on my champagne bottle pajamas, and rightly so! They are seriously incredible. So soft and with a half button front, these PJs are perfect for breastfeeding. Considering how many champagne bottles we went through, they were totally appropriate. Munki Munki‘s signature fabric will have you wanting more. I love that they’re made in the USA, and there are so many fun prints to choose from! We always do Christmas Eve gifts every year, and our tradition is to give pajamas that everyone wears that night. These are probably my favorite holiday pajamas I’ve received, and even my sister in law was lusting over them! They would make for an amazing gift for a new mom, sister, grandma, or any lady on your list.
Faux Real Romper
J’s crazy adorable Santa suit? I mean come on! It doesn’t get more heart-eyed than that! Faux Real has some awesome photorealistic apparel for the whole family. When I set eyes on their Infant Santa Suit Romper I KNEW I had to have it. It seems to run true to size, but I’m glad I went with the 6 instead of 3-month size. Because it was already snug on my chunky monkey! If you have any kiddos in your family, you should probably check out their kid’s selection. It’s hilariously amazing. Faux Real has photorealistic apparel for men, women and kids, and for almost any holiday you can think of! Plus, if you have an ugly holiday sweater party, they should probably be your go-to!
Cybex Priam with Lux Seat
You guys. I can’t even with this one. It’s seriously the crème de la crème of strollers. I got the Autumn Gold Lux Seat for our Cybex Priam and I don’t know if I can ever use another stroller with baby J again. If you want one stroller that does it all from infancy to toddlerhood, this is it! It folds up easily with a one-hand fold mechanism. Has a one-handed recline lever. And reversible seat unit. The frame is compatible with the Cybex Cloud Q and Aton Q Infant Car Seats to turn it into a travel system. You can switch the front wheels with skis in snowy weather! There’s a two-wheel mode to combat stairs and curbs! The shopping basket is HUGE and can handle a serious load! AND this one Lux Seat can handle up to about 38 pounds!
There are a million other reasons why I love this luxury stroller setup, and I could go on about it for an entire post (which in fact I will be doing, along with a video this coming week!). And yes, this WAS a gift for me. It’s so easy to maneuver and use and I’m completely smitten. Even my husband is jealous! Learn more about the Cybex Priam HERE.
gb Pockit Compact Stroller
In need of a smaller more compact stroller for traveling? The gb Pockit is incredible! I know I’m obsessed with the Cybex, but hear me out. We are traveling across country without dad in a few weeks. Yep! Two kids. Under 3. By myself. I need something I can throw my toddler in to run across the airport during layovers, and that is easy to carry and set up. This puppy is perfect for that!
While I was taking it out of the box to set it up, H came running over. He quickly claimed the gb Pocket as HIS and sat in it as soon as he could. And it can be his since it holds up to 55lbs! And just because this is a lightweight stroller doesn’t mean it looks like one. Sleek and minimalist, I love how clean the gb Pockit compact stroller is. Plus, the undercarriage holds up to eleven pounds of groceries, bags, etc! It would be perfect for theme parks with your toddler!
This stroller went viral last year and for good reason. I remember seeing on The Baby Guy NYC’s page where he showed a video of how small it condensed down and thinking to myself “I have to have it”! There’s NO assembly required – it’s ready right out of the box! The gb Pockit weighs in at a featherlight 9.5lbs. You guys, my newborn was basically heavier than that at a few weeks old.
eBags Ultralight Packing Cubes
As I mentioned earlier, I’m about to take J and H on a trip solo. This means I need lots of help with convenience. I don’t know about you, but I always way overpack when I travel. I hate the thought of leaving something behind, so I bring more than I need and it stresses me out. These Ultralight Packing Cubes from eBags are kind of the most amazing travel accessory ever. I can keep pack everyone’s things together in the same suitcase, while still keeping them separate and organized.
The different sizes are perfect for toiletries, socks, shoes, outfits, and more. And I really like that the packing cubes are made of a sure strong yet lightweight nylon fabric. Plus, the mesh top panel and thin fabric mean I can see everything in the bags without having to take everything out, and I don’t have to worry about ventilation!
eBags also sent me this awesome Connected Rewards program tag. I’ve been the unlucky one to have my luggage lost and left off flights more times than I can count. *Knock on wood this doesn’t happen to us again in a few weeks!* I always fill out the tags the airlines give me, but the paper is chintzy and always rips, and I’m not super comfortable leaving all my info on there. With the eBags Connected Tag, I can protect my privacy but still reunite with my misplaced bag. If my bag ever gets lost, it’s easy for the finder to reunite me with my bag thanks to the scannable QR code on the back! With how much stuff we’re taking with us for a week, this will come super in handy!
