We've hand-picked these winter-themed gift items to help ease your holiday shopping this year. Here's what should be on your list:

 

 

Stonz booties and liners

Bundle Up, Baby

 

These must-have Stonz Booties slide on easily over your child's bare feet, socks, slippers, footie pajamas, or Stonz Bootie Linerz (pictured on model) to keep toes toasty and dry. They're fleece-lined, water- and wind-resistant with a soft, skid-proof sole for developing feet, and have adjustable toggles at the calf and ankle for a custom fit. (Sized for newborn to age 3; $42.95 for booties; $17.95 for liners; www.stonzwear.com)

 

lady bug hat from The Children's Place

 

 

 

Hats off to The Children's Place for their latest line of fleece winter hats - they are so cute, kids might just keep them ON. Pictured is the ladybug, but there are plenty of other wild and wooly creatures to go around, from a monkey to a tiger, and a teeny penguin for newborns, too.(Sizes 6 months - 4T; $7.50 for hat, $7.50 for mittens; available at The Children's Place and www.childrensplace.com)

 

 

boy wearing an American Living red plaid shirt; boy lumberjack

 

 

 

 

Get your camera out: Your boy wonder will be ready for his outdoor close-up in this cozy hooded shirt (and what could be better than lumberjack-inspired red plaid for trekking to cut down your own holiday tree?!). (Boys sizes 4-7; $36; available at JCPenney stores and www.jcpenney.com)

 

 

Cyclops bib pant

 

 

 

We hear you: Why invest tons in outerwear that they'll only outgrow...like, tomorrow? Well, this Cyclops Bib Pant is not only waterproof, lightweight, and breathable, it has Burton Snowboards' unique Room-To-Grow feature, allowing the product to extend a whole size (two extra inches of leg and arm length!) to keep up with growth spurts-and give you bang for your buck. ($89.95; available in Burton Snowboards stores and at www.burton.com)

 

 

 

 

 

 

red plaid robe from American Living

 

Home, Sweet Home

 

Dad's setting up the tree, the kids are in their jammies. Why not slip into something more comfortable yourself-like this ultra-soft plaid robe from American Living? ($58; available at JCPenney stores and at www.jcpenney.com)

 

 

Garanimals sleepwear, pink giraffe

 

 

 

 

Cuddle up with the kids for hot cocoa and a bedtime story-but first, deck them out in Garanimals Sleepwear. The cute gift sets come with a mini plush animal. ($10; available at Walmart)

 

 

 

 

A Tree's Christmas: A talking tree's story of its Christmas adventures, by James Andrew Bowen

 

 

 

The hardcover children's chapter book "A Tree's Christmas" comes in a gold embossed case, making it a special gift-and the circle of life story about a family's beloved holiday tree, told by a 13-year-old narrator and inspired by author Andrew Bowen's own daughter, makes it memorable. ($9.95; available at Barnes & Noble stores and at www.atreeschristmas.com)

 

 

 

 

Hit the Snow!

zipfly mini luge sled

 

 

Treat the kids to the Zipfly Mini Luge Sled, a compact and lightweight ride that zips down hills and is easy to carry back up. Equipped with a special lever for stability and control, it's simple to maneuver and quick to stop. Comes in a variety of colors. (Ages 5 and up; $39.95; www.discoverystore.com)
