The 2015 Moveable Mess Gift Guide: 20 Ideas for Kids from Babies to Teens (& Pets too!)

And for my last Gift Guide: 20 Ideas for Kids, Teens & Pets, including:

  • Your friends' new baby who is bound to rule the world
  • Your cousin's toddlers who are not lacking in personality
  • The inbetweener cousins who are still figuring out how cool they are
  • The kids you used to babysit for who are suddenly taller than you and cooler than you
  • Your furry, flighty, or scaly friends or, specifically, Buzz the cat
