Celebrating the Holidays with Gymboree *Holiday Gift Guide*

I received products for free in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!

As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

Gymboree has been dressing children since 1986. The brand's fashionable clothing and accessories are designed and crafted to withstand rugged play while letting kids be kids in outfits they love to wear. Gymboree currently operates more than 600 stores in the U.S. and Canada, as well as an online store.

Having four little girls, I love when I'm able to get them to all match or compliment each other well. One thing I love about Gymboree is that I'm normally able to find great selections in both little girls and big girls that play well off one another and look amazing together! For this holiday season I was able to shop online with Gymboree and found some adorable looks for my little girls that'll be fashionable and comfortable for all. We don't normally buy nice fancy dresses for our girls, but I like them to look cute and festive during holidays (no matter which one!) and I fell in love with the "Fair Isle" collection that I was able to find in both little and big kids. 

I first found the cardigan and jeans set for our older girls in the girl section and fell in love with the over all look. The cardigan has a great look because it be worn buttoned or not, jeans or a cute skirt, and has pretty neutral colors which makes it easier to match with over all. Since it is December, I wanted to get them a nice new pair of jeans that could be worn with anything and still look good. The detail at the bottom gives the jeans a nice little pop of color and flair, but yet remains simple and cute no matter the age of your child. 

Once I fell in love with the set of clothing for the big girls, I went and looked in the toddler section and found their sizes for "Fair Isle" collection. While they don't offer the cardigan and jeans in toddler sizes, I really liked the idea of a dress and leggings. Pulling from the patterns and colors of the cardigans, the leggings offer a great similar look but at the same time are totally different (in a good way). 

While Macyn and Mya's leggings aren't 100% identical due to needing to get Macyn's side in the "girl" section, they're very similar and have the same over all look. I liked the snow bunny dress you see above because it's warm, easy access to change diapers and help a potty trainer, and it has good flow but warmth for these cold months. 

This year we opted for a low key Santa and went to our daughters' elementary school. As a family of six, soon to be seven, we couldn't afford our $40 mall Santa this year. While I have huge mom guilt for this being our first year to not go since our oldest was two months old, they still had fun and looked so cute while we were there! 

Head on over to a local Gymboree store near you if you need last minute outfits or gifts for the kiddos in your life. Their quality is great and the pieces will last for a long time. While you'll pay more then bigger stores like Wal-Mart or Target, the quality makes up for it and their unique fashion will stand out well among others!
