Links We Love: Cute Advent Calendars, Holiday Ornaments and a Gift Guide for Kids with Special Needs

From holiday gift guides to great tree decor, here's what's on our weekend make/do/buy list.

The holidays are officially here -- here are inspiring ideas for fun things to make, do and buy to help you savor the season! 

Find Gifts for All the Kids On Your List
Lots of blogs and web sites (including iVillage!) have compiled lovely lists of holiday presents for the little kids in your life, but we think the gift guide from Love That Max is especially awesome, because it's compiled for -- and tested by -- kids with special needs.

Get a Cute Advent Calendar
We love Cool Mom Picks' list of 10 adorable advent calendars. Pick one of these beauties up -- and start the countdown with your kids. (As if they're not excited enough already!)

Add an Ornament to Your Tree...
Forget about delicate glass tree decorations -- we heart this set of pretty felted acorn ornaments from CityCrochet. Love!

...or Make One
How cute are these DIY salt ornaments that we found over at Momtastic? All you need to make them is salt, water, flour -- and your kid's creativity.
