The Overly Concerned Parent’s Holiday Wish ListDecember 13th, 2012 By kirsten
This Week’s Favorite Holiday Gear Picks, Straight From Our Fun TMS Staff To You!
Great! Now that you’ve completed your Christmas shopping for the “Dirt Bag Ski Bum” in your life, you can focus on the “Overly Concerned Parent” that has stumped your holiday purchasing frenzy. We got inside the minds of TMS owner Pam and her daughter, Adina, to find out what they really want this year.
Pam – TMS Owner (for my daughter, Adina)
$154.95 / 94.95 - Marmot Starstruck Jacket and Marmot Skyline Pants
Keeping my daughter warm and dry is a top priority in winter, so I only buy the best outerwear. I love the Starstruck Jacket for girls because it has the same technical features (insulated, waterproof, stylish) as the adult version but in cute colors for little girls. Pair it up with the Skyline pants and your kid can play outside all day long without complaining.
$79.95 - Smith Galaxy/Cosmos Helmet Goggle Package – A helmet is key for safety especially for an active child. I’ve watching our daughter bounce hard on snow, ice and pavement so we want the best helmet for her protection and it needs to be cute and comfortable too so that she’ll wear it. The Galaxy/Cosmos Helmet Goggle combo fits the requirements – an affordable helmet and goggles that comes in pink with butterflies!
$34.95 - The North Face Sprout kids backpack - Overly concerned parents like to make sure we have packed EVERYTHING, so a backpack is a must. I like The North Face Sprout because it’s just the right size for my daughter and she can carry her own essentials now that she’s four years old. For older kids, there are great larger packs like the Deuter Kids Backpack.
Pam (for me!)
$20.95 / 19.95 – Smartwool Mini-Fairisle and Smartwool Jovian Stripe
I love socks and think they are the best holiday gift. I especially love the colors of the Mini Fairisle socks and Jovian Stripe socks.
$34.95 - Icebreaker BF150 Sprite Hot Pant - I think the Icebreaker BF150 is hot! The color combos are bright and fun while the style is cute and comfortable. I totally want a pair – or two or three – this winter.
$249.95 - Ugg Australia Brooks Tall Boot - The Brooks Tall Ugg Boot in black would put a huge smile on my face this winter. Fashionable, warm and waterproof; the perfect boot. Please tell my husband that I want these!
Adina – TMS Poster Child
$18.95 – Black Diamond Wiz Headlamp - Adina really wants her own headlamp, so the Black Diamond Wiz will be going in her stocking this year. It comes it cute color schemes and is plenty bright for her to play at night or to tag along on night-hikes with my husband and I.
$34.95 – Bogs Glosh Boot – She already has Bogs boots, which we love, but she really wants the new Glosh Boot since it’s pink and weighs less than her current pair. The handles are a great addition to an already waterproof and warm winter boot.
