Family Fun Twin Cities Gift Guide — 2020

Christmas stockings and gifts

Gift giving can add an element of joy or of stress, depending on your personality. Our gift guide is here to help.

I love when I find the perfect gift.  But RARELY does that happen.  If you are anything like me, we are here to help.

The FFTC team has collected some of our favorite ideas for our kids that create memories, encourage creativity, and won’t clutter up our homes.

Use this guide as a way to inspire yourself or as THE way to get your Christmas shopping done.

We have deliberately chosen companies that excite us.  If you just can’t find something here, please consider clicking over to Amazon to help support FFTC.

The company was built by two moms who were in the thick of little kids, and therefore, the costumes are built to survive through daily play.

Musical Creativity

Boys rocking out on Loog Guitars.

Guitars made for kids (but not by kids).  What makes them different and worth the price?  

“Loog Guitars are really just 3-string guitars: they use regular guitar strings, they tune like a guitar, they play like a guitar, and they sound like a guitar.”

-from Loog Guitar Website
