It’s crazy to think we now have two toddlers to buy gifts for this year! I’m sharing some things that both my kids (Ages 1 and 2) love right now and that would be great gifts for toddlers this holiday season.
1. Play Kitchen ($148):
Surprisingly, we do not have one of these yet due to limited space in our house but I have decided to make this Kennedy’s gift this year because she absolutely loves play kitchens! Whenever we go somewhere with one, it provides her hours of entertainment and I’m all for that 😉
2. Wooden Food Set ($48):
I (aesthetically) prefer wooden play food vs. plastic, but had a hard time finding a complete wooden set that includes all the food groups, until I came across this set on Etsy. This set includes fruits, veggies, meats and fish, and has magnets so the kids can practice cutting with the play utensils. I received ours last week – shipping was super fast and it’s very cute!
3. Play Grill ($124):
I can’t get Kennedy a play kitchen without getting Noah a play grill to match 😉 But really, this high-rated play grill set is so cute and perfect for the little chefs in your life.
4. Bitty Baby Doll ($60):
Of all the babies we have in this house, the bitty baby is Kennedy’s favorite. I grew up with American girl dolls, and this is the baby version of the dolls that I had so it’s also nostalgic for me 🙂
5. Magic Baby Bottles ($11):
These magic disappearing baby bottles are our kids favorite doll accessories. The juice and milk will magically disappear from the bottle as the doll drinks them, giving an impression that the baby doll is drinking.
6. Baby Doll Sleeper Set ($20):
This set of three comes with a sleeper with a bow, a long-sleeved polka-dot sleeper, and a sleeper with rainbow dots. It was made for the Bitty baby, but I imagine it’s a pretty standard size and would fit other baby dolls as well.
7. Tonie Box ($100) & Tonies ($15):
The Tonie Box was recommended to me by a friend for our kids who love music, and it is the cutest (most genius) toy ever – providing endless hours of screen-free entertainment. It is a little musical box that you can put different character Tonies on to play stories, songs, and educational content. From nursery rhymes to Peppa Pig and almost every Disney character, there is a Tonie for everyone!
8. Sit and Stand Stool ($200):
Kennedy (age 2) loves to help out in the kitchen, and this stool is the perfect booster to bring her to my level. This one can be either used as a toddler stool, or flipped on it’s side for a table and chair for coloring, arts and crafts, etc.
9. Tablet ($200):
The opposite of “screen-free” entertainment, ha! Kennedy loves watching kid videos and playing educational games on her tablet.
10. Baby Strolley ($160):
Kennedy was gifted this stroller from her grandparents when we were expecting our second so that she could “practice” taking care of a baby 🙂 It is a beautiful hand-woven rattan basket on wheels that can be used for dolls, pretend play, and pushing around their favorite toys.
11. Light-up Trampoline ($80):
This light-up trampoline is the perfect gift for a high energy toddler 🙂 It has a handle that allows them to hold on and safely jump, which can be folded down for easy storage. Designed for indoor play, we keep ours in our basement and our kids love bouncing on it!
12. Remote Control Car ($220):
Our kids were gifted this last year, and admittedly we haven’t used it much until recently but my daughter (2) is now at the age where she can drive this car herself and loves cruising around the neighborhood in it. It comes with a remote control, so you can safely guide them yourself if they’re not quite ready for the manual control.
13. Magnetic Drawing Board ($18):
This sketch board comes with a magnetic pencil and 4 animal stamps – a bunny, dog, cat, and a duck. It’s a great (mess free!) coloring device for kids.
14. Climber Activity Gym ($484):
We don’t personally have one of these, but have friends who do and highly recommend it 🙂 It is designed to enhance kids motor skills, balance control, creativity and more! The design allows for multiple different configurations and playtime combinations.
15. Personalized Hooded Animal Towel ($45):
We love having personalized towels for each kid, and these animal hood designs are so fun!
16. Bubble Leaf Blower ($25):
Kennedy’s aunt bought her this bubble blower for her first birthday and won present of the year 😉 This provides hours of entertainment and she loves being like her daddy with her “leaf” blower.
