Well hey there! I am hoping to finish up my shopping this week/weekend so I thought I'd get these up for all of you beating shipping delays.
Thoughtful gifts for baby and toddler on one post. Scroll through and let me know what you are shopping for! Next up I will post, kids and tweens! And I am also planning on a small business gift guide featuring Black, Brown and Woman owned businesses by the end of the week.
I found myself getting overwhelmed with shipping times, and some trouble shipping to our address which has been paralyzing me a bit. When this happens I create a list of gifts for each of the girls, using what they have talked about throughout the year, what they have asked Santa for and what they need/actually use. I even write out stocking stuffers since I tend to over buy, and it really really helps me.
These dolls are just so cute, I am sending to my niece and nephew.
These stacking cups are a great toy that they will play with for many years, in the bath, in a water table or even as a teether.
Wooden rings, they will use now and later!
These Sarah Silk scarves are just magical and can be used for years of pretend, peekaboo and even just a sensory tool.
This play gym is what I wish I would have gotten for the girls, so cute and sleek.
We had one of these fun Wooden Activity Cube and they played with for years.
Push toy, wooden and just so cute, I love this rattan one too.
Indestructible books are so fun for babies, and easy to carry around.
I love these essentials that babies will need as gifts, sleep sacks,
These suction cups are also great, for the floor or high chair and even for the fridge when mama needs baby to stay busy. Later they are great for the bath or water table.
Stacking toys but made out of silicone can be a great gift.
This Rody toy has brought endless play time, and some sensory movement for both girls.
For toddler gifts, I like to think of the way my girls play. Lot's of make pretend, lots of building and anything small and cute or baby doll related is huge. So think about the way your kiddo plays and start there. For us it is also important for toys to grow with them, and for them to expand imaginations and play independently so I am going with that theme in this gift guide, plus a few things I know the girls have and LOVE.
For big gifts, I love a play kitchen (This Hape one is so cute, we have this one and I love this way expensive one but it's so pretty and my girls do play with theirs EVERY DAY), with kitchen toys like this blender, or mixer, and I am getting Ami this little toast set.
I also think these could be so fun for a toddler and beyond.
These little veggie set is really cute, soft and the girls love playing with them. They also have this cutting set, it all can be used to teach fractions, play kitchen or sorting (Which Ami is very into right now.
Wooden triangle ladder is a fun toy, especially during the winter months, we were thinking of getting something similar.
This little play sink is endless amount of fun, I may get one for the girls to share.
The girls asked for magic wands so I am giving them these in their stocking!
We have a balance board the girls love using it.
This slide is sleek and so cute for an indoor playroom!
We are thinking about getting the girls a bigger doll house that they can both use at the same time.
Have a great one!
