Last Minute Gift Guide 4 Mermaids



I meant to share this post sooner than FOUR DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS, but alas I’ve been distracted by travel, the loss of my grandma, and our own Christmas merriment.

Looking for a last minute gift to balance out the presents under your Christmas conifer? I try to ensure our kidlets have the same number of gifts, lest there be any accusation of inequity. God bless Amazon for times such as these, and their sacred two-day shipping forever and ever, amen.

Perhaps your daughter is similarly obsessed with mermaids as ours… it seems mermaiding has gained momentum in recent months and become trendy, versus just some obscure unique fascination of our daughter’s.

In Center Sister’s case it turns out being a mermaid is hereditary, she comes by it naturally.

Three generations of mermaids. Who wore it best?

Shopping for mermaids is especially fun, and I’ve become adept at spotting new mer-deals throughout the seven seas interwebs…

As a toddler, Center Sister dutifully carted around the predecessor to this mer-Dora doll as her chosen lovey. Sadly, I have no idea what happened it.
