This post is to help give you ideas for Christmas gifts for those little tots on your list, whether you’re a grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, aunt or uncle. The picture above is a collage of some things Wolfie has loved or things I’ve heard are great, but there’s more below at different budget levels– so check them out too!!!
Another idea to gift to your babes is some art from my shop that they could grow into! You could even commission a custom floral for your daughter or woodland animals (or whatever your theme is) for you boy!!!!
Play Kitchen Sets Under $140
One of Wolfgang’s favorite things to play with at daycare & church has always been a play kitchen so I let him help me look through some budget-friendly options and these were the ones he thought looked cool!
Educational Toys for Toddlers
Wolfie has a few of these and loves them! I am still planning a post about ways to help our toddlers learn to ID the alphabet in fun ways and I think some of these tools will make it into that post! PS, I saw the Melissa & Doug puzzle at someone’s house lately and the letters lift up to reveal an object that starts with the letter.. for example, A lifts to reveal an apple! How cleaver!

Baby Girl Gift Ideas
Basically babies only need basics, right? Seasonal clothes that fit, socks that stay on, a carseat that works, diapers, wipes… but you’ll also need a carseat cover if you or someone you know has a baby and this Etsy shop is who made ours & I get compliments on it’s smart design ALL THE TIME!
I included a few nursery “toppers” (aka nursery accents), gorgeous mobiles, adorable stuffed animals, and baby socks recommended to me b/c they are designed to actually stay on those little feet!!!!
Stroller Ideas for Expanding Families
As we have tried to manage going from one child to two, we have realized how important it is to have a place to put both kids while we’re out and about! I’m just kinda in the planning stage, but these are the strollers we found so far that look like good & relatively inexpensive options. I’ll do some test drives soon & tell you what I think of them in real life! FYI it’s super duper important to test drive a stroller before buying. Try it with weight in the bottom and weight in the seats too. Our first stroller seemed great until our son got a little bigger and now it has steering problems that are not only embarrassing, but sometimes dangerous!
