When I had my first baby I quickly grew attached to parenting devices that I just couldn’t live without (our water sling, the Ergo, and the Rock ‘N Play to name a few). So when baby #2 was on her way, I had all of those items ready and waiting.
But of course, as you’d expect, I didn’t end up needing them because she had her own ideas and her own needs.
So I started the discovery process all over again and for her, one of the greatest creations I came across was the diaper caddy.
It’s basically a diaper bag that doesn’t need to be unzipped, is more easily accessible, and can be anywhere in your home that you need it. It was an alternative to having a dedicated diaper changing table and ended up making travel a breeze.
I’ve got some definite tech lovers in my family, so this list comes from my own experience! Some are past successes that I wish I could just give again, others will be making their appearance at the next holiday season.
Thankfully, my husband and Dad have both agreed not to read this post (it will be really hard for them, I’m sure), so I can be totally honest with you. 🙂 They also both weighed in on these ideas, so I can tell you exactly what they were thinking.
Here we go! The best gifts for the tech loving man in your life:
My son LOOOOVES trains. Train everything. Train shoes, train clothes, train tracks, train stuffed animals, train utensils, train movies. So of course, books about trains are very high on our list of train activities and I can assure you, we not only own all these books, we read them everyday.
So if you are on the hunt for the best books about trains for preschoolers, this list is for you!

For the most part, I love shopping for gifts for other people…unless, of course, I have no idea what to get them. The anxiety of not being able to find the right gift for someone can drive me absolutely crazy, so I always try and scour certain sites for good gift ideas way ahead of time.
For the most part, these are the sites that ALWAYS deliver. They have unique gift ideas (some are one-of-a-kind) and a few are perfect for last-minute gift ideas or if you need to ship something to someone long distance.
I’m willing to be that you’ll love these too, so good luck with your shopping!
For some reason, putting Easter baskets together for my kids is one of my favorite times of the year. There’s way less pressure than Christmas and spring is just about to come! This year we’ve got a 3-year old and a newborn, so it should be extra fun. While I’m sure my 3-year old would have been satisfied with a basket full of trains, I am bound and determined to make it well-rounded and still tons of fun (if you also have a train obsessed boy, you may just want to check out this post → What to Get for Your Thomas the Train-Obsessed Little Boy).
