Oh, What Fun! Nostalgic Gifts & More from Cracker Barrel #MBPHGG18


Thank you to Cracker Barrel for providing me with product in exchange for my review. All thoughts are my own.

Bells will soon be ringing as families everywhere gather in to celebrate the reason for the season. I try to hold fast to the true reason for Christmas celebrations as much as possible. All throughout our home, we place decorations and photos, capturing the beauty of the season, and special memories from past holidays. We have a lot of special traditions, like gathering around the Christmas tree early on Christmas morning to read the Christmas story as a family before we open gifts. Another tradition is to introduce our kids to nostalgic or classic gifts, rather than just give them newfangled trending presents.

One of my favorite places to shop for classic gifts is Cracker Barrel! If you've ever enjoyed a delicious meal (like my family will be doing during the holidays), you already know the perk that is the General Store! I love walking through the store in Cracker Barrel. It's always filled with beautiful decor and unique gifts for everyone in the family!

This season, Cracker Barrel is bringing back some of those classic toys and games that we loved as kids!

Raggedy Ann Doll, $16.99 (crackerbarrel.com)

Remember this sweet gal? It's none other than Raggedy Ann! My mom still has fond memories of her original Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls. They were special to her when she was growing up, and I remember her telling my sister and I that we had to be extra careful with her dolls when we asked to play with them as young girls. 

In 1915, author Johnny Gruelle wrote and illustrated stories about Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy to entertain his daughter, Marcella. They became cherished classics, bringing smiles to children and adults for nearly 100 years. Aurora World has charmingly recreated the storied dolls, who are beloved for inspiring friendship, kindness and generosity. Soft and huggable, Aurora's Classic Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy are heirloom treasures to be passed along to generations to come.

This doll is so beautifully made! I can't wait to see my daughter's sweet face when we present her with this doll! It's a third generation of women in my family with Raggedy Ann dolls- what a special gift. I hope she will cherish this doll, always, and pass it down to future generations.

Classic games in a wooden storage box- a great gift for the kid (or big kid) who has it all!

I love connecting my kids with some of the games and toys I loved to play with when I was little. The Neato Classic Game Set by Toysmith has so many fun games included in the set- perfect for passing the time. The set includes seven games, like dominos, yo-yo, jacks, pick up stix, and more! This is going to be the perfect present for my oldest. He'll love being able to play these games when we're in a mountain cabin for a week this holiday season! It'll be a great way for the family to spend time together, enjoying these classic games!


A garage that fits right into your pocket- an awesome stocking stuffer!

This cool toy is a miniature Ferrari! It's a tiny little garage that fits right into your pocket. Store the car in its case or take it out to race and play! This is a cool gift for kids who love cars to race and play with, or for car enthusiasts and collectors! It's so small, you can easily tuck it right into their stocking!

Grab these toys and games, plus many more at Cracker Barrel!


Gifts for the gals


This gorgeous tote is perfect for winter time!

When I'm asked what I'd like most for Christmas, handbags are always at the top of my list. They're one of the items I use most, and I look for bags that are beautiful, stylish, and practical to carry while toting around a couple of kiddos. I always wind up carrying their stuff, so I need a roomy bag with a nice shoulder strap, like this one.

This hobo bag is a great color for winter, and with it being brown with black trim, it goes with everything! It has tons of room inside, and lots of pockets for storage. I can easily separate my things from my kids' things- each having a different part of the bag to hold needed items. This pretty bag looks great dressed up or down!

This brown hobo bag is available for $34.99 at Cracker Barrel.
