1. Fun Gift Idea: Dress Up Bunch Club

DUB-Club-2015-600x600

Saw this on Twitter and had to share! I love Wendi Gratz’s work—her book is one of Beanie’s go-to resources—and this doll + clothes pattern club such a fun idea I had to share.

You’re Invited to the Dress Up Bunch Club! – Shiny Happy World.

Join the club and on the 13th of every month you’ll get a brand new, never-seen before pattern!

The pattern in January will be for a new Dress Up Bunch doll (a human girl).

Every month after that for the rest of the year, the pattern will be for an outfit and some accessory (or accessories) to go with the doll. I don’t know what they’ll be yet (though I have some ideas) but at least some of them will tie in to seasons or holidays.

You’ll receive the pattern by email. You can start sewing that very day!

This isn’t an affiliate link or sponsored post, just a gift idea I thought some of you might enjoy. :)

2. Wonder Box Special

I wrote about Wonder Box in my GeekMom review of subscription boxes for kids:

I discovered Wonder Box when I was looking for a birthday gift for my three-year-old godchild, the brilliant daughter of my fellow GeekMom, Kristen Rutherford. When it comes to presents, I’m usually sort of a one-note giver — books, books, and more books — but this time, I wanted to give something different, something Kristen and Vivi could do together. Something hands-on, creative, and fun. The second I saw Wonder Box, an assortment of crafts and activities aimed at kids ages 3-6, I knew I’d hit a bullseye. You can order Wonder Box as a one-time gift, or sign up for a monthly subscription.

More details in the post. They’re now offering a $5 discount on orders through Jan. 13—use code HOLIDAY5-03 at checkout.

3. Gift Ideas

Quick note to say I’ve got a new piece up at GeekMom:

Give a Box of Fun: Five Subscription Kits for Kids.

I’m doing a bunch of these subscription boxes reviews and this one was particularly fun to research: arts-and-crafts kits for kids. With, like, all the stuff for projects right in one box.

I’ve also reviewed some exceedingly tasty food-themed boxes: Knoshbox and La Bella Box. In my next installment, I’m looking at artsy-crafts subscriptions, and then after that, more food. Fun project. :)
