It never fails. When I receive The Land of Nod's winter catalog, I can't help but want every single thing on every single page. I have extreme holiday-decorating envy.

Is there a German word for how I feel when I get my Land of Nod winter catalog in the mail? It's a cross between adoration and envy and wanting all the money so I can buy all the things, plus the need to purchase a million twinkle fairy lights and make my own home as magical as the pages of the catalog. There's a word for that, right? I mean, everything in the catalog is freakin' adorable.

How cute is this? The only thing saving me from buying this is the fact that my kids are a bit too big for it, but if they were still toddler age, I would be all over it. They also sell a little ice cream set to go with it. The ice cream truck play tent is currently on sale, so now might be a good time to snatch it up.

This garland is so adorable, and I will be hanging mine above my mantel, mainly because if I put it on my tree, I'm pretty sure my cat will think it's for him.

I'm dying over this swan sleeping bag, and it may end up under my tree for my kid. Sure, it's a wee bit pricey, but considering how many slumber parties my kid attends, it would be totally worth it.

How beautiful are these unicorns from artist Sabina Gibson? These are total heirloom quality and perfect for any child who is in love with these mythical beasts. Everyone adores unicorns.

Ballet troupe ornaments

Every year, I buy my kids a new ornament for the tree in hopes they will one day have a lovely collection of their own. These cute little dancers would make an adorable stocking stuffer.

I asked The Land of Nod if this came in grown-up sizes so I could just move into it, but no luck. This is just the dreamiest playhouse ever. I love the pattern.

I love this guy so much! How funny is he? I usually don't go gaga over stuffed things, because I feel they are just dust collectors, but this would make the most adorable toddler gift ever. I love him. I may actually have to buy one for myself.
