Welcome to the 2018 Holiday Guide! I’m excited to bring share this with you and believe that’s there’s something on here for everyone on your list. Scroll down for all the details and don’t forget to follow Newtown Moms on Facebook and Instagram for amazing holiday giveaways starting this week.





BD Provisions has you covered for all of your holiday gifting needs.  Choose from over 300 items in bulk including chocolates, candies, nuts, fresh roasted coffee beans, loose leaf teas and more to create your own custom gifts.  Choose our unique mason jar gifting tote or a more traditional holiday basket- you can even tell us what you want and we’ll build it for you and call you when it’s ready for pick up.

Queen Street Gifts & The Gift Box also offer some great options for hostess gifts.



Main Street Adventures is the new kid in town (pun intended). Opening on 12/17, Main Street Adventures offers a fun and safe indoor playground. Little Explores (ages 3 and under) can play in an age appropriate enclosed play space, while kids ages 3+ can take on the state of the art playscape. Give the gift of play this year with a gift certificate. For more information, please visit MSA’s website by clicking here.

You can also check out a local toy store like The Toy Tree, The Toy Room, or Noridica Toys to complete your shopping for the playful kids of any age.




The Suzuki Music School of Newtown
has been in business for over 40 years. The school  strives to develop the whole child through music education. Students are given the opportunity to perform and showcase their talents at multiple performances throughout the year and are backed by our award winning teachers who share over 200 years of experience. The school is proud to offer a wide variety of programs for all ages: Baby Classes and Pre-School Music Classes for Ages 6 Weeks – 5 Years old as well as our Instrumental Program for ages 4 and up, which includes Piano, Classical Guitar, Violin and Viola as well as our Americana Program offering Traditional Fiddle, Acoustic Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Electric Guitar, Slide Guitar and Banjo lessons. Adults students welcome!



Black Swan Home is more than your average fireplace and stove store. Don’t get me wrong, they have amazing home heating options from traditional to alternative home heating, but have you seen their decor items? In business in Newtown since 1979, with a second location in New Milford, Black Swan also carries one-of-a-kind home decor items like bar carts, seasonal items like ornaments & wreaths, and wood signs.







Both Newtown and Brookfield have two women’s boutiques offering a wide variety of clothing. Check out Basil Rose Boutique or The Traveling Chic Boutique to check off the gifts for the trendy gal in your life.







Encourage the love of reading by gifting books this season. Browse a local book shop like Bank Street Book Nook or Byrd’s Books to pick out the perfect gift.








The Holidays can often be a whirlwind. Why not consider gifting yourself with some “me time”? There’s no shortage of amazing spots in our area for nail, hair, spa, and tan services. Check out Beautiful You, Color Spectrum, Green Sun Organics, or Willows of Danbury for a few options. 

In addition to shopping local, shopping small is another great way to find unique and different gifts. Here are some of my favorite small brands discovered within the last year.

Made Of is an organic first brand on a mission to provide parents with simple and safe everyday baby products. You can save 20% on your order with the code LOCALMOM.





Kid Box is on a mission to make shopping for kid’s clothing easy, while giving back. All you do is take a quiz, you then get 6-7 items, and decide what you like. If you keep the whole box, you receive special pricing & KidBox makes a donation to charity of your choice to help a child in need. Click here to save 15% with code LOCALMOMS.




Peach makes clothes for gym, work, and play. All pieces are extremely versatile, comfortable, and machine wash & dry. Free shipping is available this month on all orders.



Dudley Stephens is a chic & stylish fleece brand created by two sisters.  After being somewhat familiar with the brand, I saw one in person earlier this fall on another mom. After I saw it, I knew it was a brand I had to try! Needless to say, Isabelle and I wear ours all the time. It’s a bit of a splurge, but so warm and great for layering if you’re spending a lot of time outside this winter. 





My sister recently participated in a photo shoot for Chappy Wrap, brand owned by a mother-daughter duo. These super snuggly blankets are made of a soft & snuggly natural cotton blend.
