It's that time again... when twinkling lights line the streets, aromas of gingerbread fill the air, and parents and kids alike are giddy about surprising their loved ones with a special gift.
Sifting through endless isles of toys or scrolling through the pages upon page of toys on Amazon can take the fun out of gift-giving.
I have listed all of my favorite toddler gifts here with links for purchase to make your holiday shopping easy.
Whether its summer or winter, sweating in tank tops and shorts, or red-nosed despite jackets, hats, and gloves, my kids love to play outside. Some of my all-time favorite gifts to give are outdoor toys since they tend to get a ton of use and encourage the kiddos to be active and get fresh air. The first gift listed here is my most favorite outdoor toy ever and in my opinion totally worth the investment. Check it out!
My kids will spend hours doing arts and crafts. In fact, I often encourage this as an option during "quiet time" so mama can get some quiet time of her own, as it works like a charm. Check out some of our favorites.
Kids learn through play. In fact, research shows that having unstructured play each day not only helps kids learn, but also uses up a tremendous amount of pent up energy and can improve their behavior. Cheers to that!
I try not to overthink stocking stuffers. Kids love little things. Even if they are things they need (socks) or use all the time (crayons). My most favorite idea this year for a little girl's stocking stuffer is the very last item on this list. If you have a little girl, you will definitely want to give this item a shot (and you will never go back).
