This toddler gift guide is heavy on items that encourage role playing and sensory play as well as some that will last them for years. Hope you find something for the toddler in your life!
- I’m a huge fan of Cuddle & Kind. Every purchase of one of these handmade, fair trade dolls equals 10 meals for children in need.
2. Another fan favorite, Lovevery has been the number one source of toys for us. We have the monthly subscription and all of the additional playthings like the organic tunnel, block set, and pull pup. It averages out to about $40/box. P.S. I’m going to share a code for $30 off a subscription on Thursday.
3. Trampoline – We are getting this for Noah this year. Jeremiah had an earlier version when he was younger and he loved it. It’s great for indoor play.
4. Another great plush option are the Hazel Village friends. Hazel Village is special to me because it’s the very first brand I carried in my old store. The owner is the sweetest person and I love to support small businesses like hers. They have multiple options and outfits for each of the animals.
5. Wooden Name Puzzle It’s a name puzzle and busy board all in one.
6. You Matter Flag – A cute decoration for a playroom or bedroom.
7. Melissa & Doug Cleaning Set – Toddlers LOVE to “help” so encourage them with this set. Noah loves to mop alongside me and he’s always dusting his playhouse.
8. Bouncing Bee – I shared this last year around this time and I’m sharing it again because it is a great price and kids love it. It comes with a pump to blow it up. One year later and it’s still going strong.
9. Ikea play kitchen – This is a great “main” gift for toddlers. You can get fancy and customize it or leave it as is. I also recommend all of the Ikea play food and pots and pans.
10. Maileg Mice – These little mice are adorable! I wish I had these as a kid. They come in a little matchbox that doubles as their bed (with a little blanket and pillow). Theres also this cute little house or you can use them in any other dollhouse.
11. Pottery Barn Anywhere Chair – Noah will be finding this plush chair under the tree. I’m hoping it will keep him off the couch lol. They have lots of options and three different sizes. This one pictured is the St. Jude’s edition and part of the proceeds will get donated to them.
12. Areaware Cube Bot – Jeremiah had this as a kid and it gave him lots of tactile play time trying to change it from a cube to a robot. Great stocking stuffer
13. Balance Bike – Another thing we are getting Noah that Jeremiah used to have (they’re 7 years apart so we didn’t hang on to anything). This helps them learn to balance at a young age (18m) and once they grow they can jump right into a regular bike with no training wheels. It really works and it’s fun to see them evolve from being shaky to zooming down hills.
14. Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site – One of Noah’s favorite books. It’s a great bedtime story for any kid that loves construction equipment. I also got him this book, this one, and this one.
