This post is sponsored by The Lakeside Collection.  All words and opinions are 100% mine.

My kids said something the other day that made my heart skip a little beat...Christmas is 3 months away. 80 days to be exact!  Recently I was contacted by the Lakeside Collection to share some great Christmas present ideas with you.  Here are some of my favorites things that I found on their website:

This "Santa Key" has a note explaining how Santa gets in to houses without chimneys, and then leaves his key hanging on the tree when he leaves.  Too cute!

If your child has multiple teachers like mine do, affordable gifts can sometimes be a challenge.  These treat buckets will help you spread some yummy holiday cheer!

Your neighbors or office associates are sure to love you forever if you bring them a yummy homemade treat in one of these cute Christmas loaf pans-

These stars caught my eye...they would be so cute mixed in with the ornaments that I hung from the roof of my front porch last year.

I for one know a boy (and some dads and uncles!) that would love one of these

and a girl who would think this glowing pillow would be way too cool!

Ruffle pants for little girls?  Yes please!

There's a fun collection of nostalgic toys that you might remember from when you were a kid.  We have this one at our house, and (shhh! don't tell anyone) there's a certain little girl who lives here that still wants it wound up every night at bedtime.

Have someone who loves to cook in your family?  They'll love the Pioneer Woman's cookbook...I sure do (especially the cinnamon rolls!).

Don't forget our feathered friends this winter...every home could use one of these!

And finally, nothing's better than kids in Christmas pj's, unless they're personalized Christmas pj's!  Every year I'm on the hunt for cute ones, my kids know by now that's the one and only gift they get to open on Christmas Eve!

My picks have barely scratched the surface of all of the products that Lakeside has to offer, and their prices are great! They have home and garden items, toys, books, name it.  Seriously, in the time I spent on their website, I found something that everyone on my list would love!  Be sure to check out, and get a jump now crossing some things off of that Christmas list!

  1. There are some things here I would definitely look into for some members of the family - the book on Lego and the glowing pillow(!) and Santa's key might help us, too :)

  2. I used to love looking through the Lakeside Collection catalog! I haven't got one for awhile.

  3. That glowing pillow would be a great birthday gift for tween/teen girls! I'll have to keep that in mind. Thanks for sharing this resource.

  4. I get that question a lot from my kids how Santa gets into the house, so the key would be so cute.

  5. I love those ruffled pants and personalized PJ's, too cute!
