Whether you've been naughty or nice, we're sure you've been too busy worrying about your kids' holiday wish list to create your own - so here's some help!

 

iMitt mittens in kiwi, from uncommongoods.comOh, Holy Mitten

So now that you've got that knitting class under your belt, use the iMitt Mitten Kit to practice: When done, each mitten has an open thumb hole and another hole for your index finger to peek through so you can easily access your phone or iPod's touch screen! Colors are gorgeous, too - eggplant, navy, or kiwi (pictured). ($36 for kit including knitting needles, a darning needle, stitch markers, yarn cutter, how-to instructions, and enough yarn for one pair; www.uncommongoods.com)

 

American Living cap sleeve black dress with wrap front

 

All Wrapped Up

This easy and elegant cap sleeve dress has crisscross draping in front to flatter your middle, and it's totally on trend. Throw a sweater over it for a casual dinner gathering, or glam it up with jewelry for a formal holiday party. (Sizes 2-16; $74; available at JCPenney stores and www.americanliving.com

 

American Living chunky cable knit scarf in white

 

 

 

 

A chunky scarf is the perfect accessory - it'll keep you warm and it'll liven up that tried-and-true yoga pants/tee shirt combo you run all those errands in. This one looks hand-knit, and its neutral tone goes with everything. ($32; available at JCPenney stores and www.americanliving.com)

 

 

 

footzy rolls

 

 

Stash a pair in your work bag, a pair in your car - these rollable, foldable, waterproof ballet flats are the ideal spare shoes for days when you've got to ditch the heels and make a mad dash to the kids' pickup (they even come in a handy pouch). And in Footzyrolls Luxe's latest snakeskin patterns, they're beyond cute. ($30; available at Macy's, Lord & Taylor, and at www.footzyrolls.com)

 

 

 

Bragging Rights

palbum, mini photo albumpalbum, mini photo album in pink leatherHere's one gift we suggest you order now for your children's grandparents, godparents, and doting relatives - and while you're ordering, add one more to your online shopping cart just for YOU: These mini albums that you easily design come printed on heavy stock like your baby's board books, but are packaged just for adults in covers such as this genuine leather option. ($12.99; www.palbums.com)

 

 

 

 

BoyMom long sleeve black t-shirtGirlMom pink t-shirtAre you a girly girl who's the mom of a garbage-truck-loving, sword-wielding little boy? Embrace it, says BoyMom founder Amy Williams: "I'm proud of my special role I play in the lives of my two little maniacs." Her line has recently extended to include GirlMom gear, too, so moms of all can wear their heart on their sleeves - or, as the case may be, on your chest in these cheeky slim-fit tees. (100% cotton; $38 for long-sleeved tee; $29 for short-sleeved tee; www.boymomdesigns.com)
