Toddler Gift Guide

I don’t know about you but I find toddlers so hard to shop for! They like to open presents, but as soon as the gift is open they lose interest. I wonder what the point was of spending hard earned money on something so easily forgotten. So I have given it my best effort to put together a list of gift ideas (in a variety of price ranges) that won’t lay unused the day after they have been given.

From tea parties to coloring, this table gets used. All. The. Time. In our house. Our daughter loved “helping” to put the set together and still loves to pretend that she fixing them.

This baby right here is another one of those all day, every day toys. And it’s dishwasher safe which is a total plus for me.

I know not every toddler plays with stuffed animals but my daughter LOVES them. She dresses them in her little sisters clothes, puts them down for naps, pretends they are baby Jesus when she pretends to be Mary, she just has such a fun time with them! And I absolutely adore these little guys from  Hazel Village , they are handmade and so sweet :)

Building Materials (links on photos)

  • Legos are a classic. For little hands we really love Duplos!

  • Wooden Blocks and Magna Tiles provide endless opportunities for imaginative play.

  • I just love this little rocket ship from Manzanita Kids, they have tons of different wooden toys from plain blocks to larger modular type building sets similar to this one.

These are just some of the things that we have that my toddler loves, or things that she really looks forward to playing with when we go to other people’s homes or to the library. I hope you found it helpful, and I would love to know what toys your toddler can get enough of :) I’ll be sure keep this post updated with suggestions!
