Every year, Christmas seems to sneak up on me quicker. No matter how hard I try, I’m always scrambling down to the last minute. And especially when it comes to kid’s gifts. I struggle fulfilling their wish list and not compromising too much on my Made in USA values. I know I’m a little late in the game to post this Holiday Gift Guide, but I was busy!

10. School Bus by Green Toys available through FatBrain Toys – When my little guy (who is now 13!) was 2 years old, he was obsessed with buses! He had 2 buses he carried everywhere. Big bus, and little bus. Of course, those buses were both made in China back then. I want to get him this bus from Green Toys just because I think he deserves a do-over. Or maybe it’s me that wants a do-over? Ahh Christmas, makes us all feel like kids again!
