Visit the Bellacor Toy Store for Holiday Gifts

If you’ve spent any time at Bellacor.com, you know we’re a great source for lighting and home furnishings. That’s what we do best, and that’s what we know you’re looking for when you visit. But did you know Bellacor offers a wide variety of toys, dolls and games? Hmm, we wonder when you might be in the market for some of those kinds of things. Yep, just in time for the holiday gifting season, here are 5 top picks from our toy store.

KidKraft Fire Station Kids Play Set

A lot of kids have a dollhouse, but how many have their very own firehouse? Boys and girls are going to love this fire station, which includes a helipad on the roof and garage doors that open and close. The set also has 10 pieces of furniture and 2 flexible firefighters, who are built to bend to your kids’ will. Oh, and we almost forgot the helicopter and fire truck that come along with this station. Those would make great gifts all by themselves. Maybe you could keep the firehouse for yourself?

Woodstock Percussion Woodstock Kids Guitar

You already know that your child rocks. But now they can rock for real with their very first guitar.With its high-gloss, natural wood finish, this just like a full-size guitar, only sized down for smaller hands. It’s great for taking lessons and it comes with a songbook by renowned folk musician Happy Traum (includes information on changing strings and tuning). It also comes with a guitar pick and an extra set of strings. They’ll be making beautiful music before you know it. We think this is how Mozart got his start.

Wesco Green Plastic Wescomobile

Molded from a single piece of plastic, this sturdy little scooter can stand up to the day-to-day strain your child will surely put it through. This little vehicle is built for kids ages 2-4. The solid rubber tires won’t scuff your floors. Best of all, the seat stays where it is so you child won’t be slipping and sliding as he or she glides across the floor. It’s time for your baby’s first car and this is the safest ride around. By holding onto the two handles and moving their legs, children can cruise for hours.

Guidecraft Natural See and Store Dress-Up Center

Every kid loves to play dress up. We encourage this kind of thing because it encourages imagination and feeds their dreams. Some want to be princesses. Some want to be firemen. When they play dress up, they can be all of these, any of these things. This unit features three storage compartments on one side for toys, shoes and dramatic play items; a deep bottom with sides; a sturdy wood dowel for hanging clothes and costumes; and an acrylic mirror for dramatic play. It’s the ideal addition to your children’s play area. Store old uniforms or Halloween costumes and let the kids have a blast.

But this toy box would work great if you have a boy and a girl. It’s nice to look at, but not too girly or boyish. You don’t need two toy boxes.

The Perfect Gift for Your Next Party

Summer brings lots of pool parties, birthday parties and family events. If you are the one hosting, the right décor and design is often top of mind, leaving the gifts to figure out later. This year, give a gift that is one-of-a-kind. If you are in a rush or can’t find the perfect gift, we have a few suggestions for you!

Consider Wall Decor

Wall décor is not only for adults but is a great gift for kids as well! No matter what your style is, wall decals from RoomMates make decorating easy and fun! Featuring your favorite licensed art like Minnie and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or Winnie the Pooh and Disney Pixar Cars, kids can bring their walls to life with their favorite characters and designs. (Wall decals by RoomMates also offer a wide selection of wall quotes, trees & branches and floral décor for adults). The best part is these wall decals are peel and stick. No sticky residue gets left on your walls! Plus, temporary decorating is great for kids since their favorite characters change so frequently!

Wall decor makes a nice gift if attending a child’s birthday party that has theme! The Frozen line is especially popular and is a special gift to give at a Frozen themed birthday party. What little girl wouldn’t want to open up her very own giant Elsa and hang her right up on her bedroom wall?

RoomMates Gift idea- Elsa

And one of our favorite reasons to give wall décor as a gift, it pairs well with bedroom themes. If the child’s bedroom décor is based on Mickey Mouse, giving a giant decal of Mickey or Mickey and his friends, just adds to the collection. Plus, after the décor is hung, it makes a nice bold statement on the wall.

Personalized Wall Art

A cool spin on wall decals, give a custom wall decal for a gift that is really memorable. RoomMates custom wall decals offer the ability to personalize your own wall sticker. Use one of their premade templates and add your name or phrase. A great gift for any child, there is nothing that brings a room to life than a personalized peel and stick decal that says “Sasha’s Room.”  Like the wall décor line, customizable wall art is also removable and reusable!

RoomMates Gift idea- Personalized

Children receive so many toys. Consider a gift that is out of the box and fun! Remember wall décor is child friendly! We particularly like this kind of gift because of the application process! It is nice for the child to decorate together with an adult and be amazed by the peel and stick of the decal on the wall as they move it from wall to wall.

Consider something out of the box the next time you give a gift!

Bridal Gift Suggestions for every Personality

Bridal Gift Suggestions for every Personality

Every bride is different and what might be considered the perfect gift for one girl might be returned by another. How to find the perfect gift for the blushing bride-to-be in your life comes down to one thing: her personality. Here are ideas to get you inspired.

The “always think before you jump” friend or relative

You know the type. The one person who never does anything spontaneous and always has a plan. She’s practical, but that’s why you love her. The best gift for a practical bride is something she needs. If she doesn’t have a registry, don’t be afraid to ask the bride what gifts would be useful. Items like cookware are often popular with the practical types.

The wild one

She might have calmed down over the years, but you knew the bride when she was in college and a little wilder. Look for a gift that indulges her wild side, but also fits in with her present life. Anything that incorporates zebra or leopard print, such as throw pillows, towels or a blanket would work.

The bride with an artistic side

You’ve always been a little jealous of her creativity, but now’s your chance to show off your creative side as well. How about a fabulous piece of art? Or one of those DIY projects you’ve pinned to your board on Pinterest? A handmade gift is a great way to give something more personal.

The laidback, one-of-the-guys girl

The word “drama” isn’t even in her vocabulary. This girl would much rather be at a sports bar than watching romantic chick flicks with her girlfriends. Get her tickets for a local sporting event that she and her new hubby can enjoy. Another great option is to buy a case of her favorite adult beverage and pair it with new drinking glasses.

The adventurous girl

While you might not be able to buy this girl a plane ticket to Europe, you can give her something to take along on her next adventure, such as a new camera or quality hiking gear.

With the bride’s personality in mind, you can buy a gift you know she’ll love.
