Gift Guide - Baby & Kids
With the holiday season in full swing, my first of many gift guides is here! This really comes at the perfect time because the Black Friday deals are everywhere (even in Canada, woo!). While I may not have any kids of my own, I have bought MANY gifts for babies and kids in the past few years for family members and friends with kids and have seen gifts they have received from others both good AND bad!
This gift guide includes many of my go-to gifts, not only for holidays, but also for baby showers, new babies, and birthdays! I absolutely love the classic wooden toys and anything monogramed! When in doubt, keep both of those in mind - they never fail!
1. This Grizzly Sleigh is so cute and a perfect holiday gift for young kids. The buffalo check pattern is adorable and the padded sides offer some comfort and warmth.
2. I could spend hours on the Janie and Jack website. Their kid's clothing may be the cutest ever, but it is expensive! This is why pretty much any item from there would make for a great gift.......but I do love this Reversible One Piece. Great for the colder months.
3. Jonathan Adler and Fisher Price.....need I say more? I LOVE this collection and the ROCK'N PLAY Soothing Seat would surely come in handy for new parents!
4. How cute is this Personalized Laptop Chalkboard? The wooden finish looks so sleek, it can be monogrammed, and it holds chalk inside the 'laptop' when closed.
5. I love the vintage look of this Pearly White Metal Car. A fun gift for sure!
6. This Ralph Lauren Check-Fit-and-Flare Dress is a perfect little holiday dress! It also comes in red and black.
7. A Ralph Lauren Reversible Vest for babies.....ADORABLE! Enough said.
8. A cute addition to any nursery or playroom. These Etched Wooden Blocks are great for toddlers and young kids. Fun to stack and play and great for learning words!
9. This Retro Natural Bike makes for a stunning gift! I love the wood! These balance bikes are the 'it' bikes for little kids to learn with. This would definitely be a HIT with the kids on Christmas morning (but maybe not with the parents!).
10. This Bear Sweater Hoodie is beyond cute. It comes in an array of colours, including many neutrals which make for a great gender neutral gift beyond the holidays (i.e. baby shower).
11. All kids love animals! This Animal Rescue Shape-Sorting Truck acts as both toy and learning tool (shape sorting!).
12. Because what little girl wouldn't love a Wooden Doll House?!
13. I love this Cozy Polka Dot Jumper! Cute for the holidays and beyond.
14. For the young artist - A Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel
15. Another great personalized gift! This Personalized Tool Box is so cute.
16. This Firehouse Set makes a great gift for a little boy! The masculine version of a wooden doll house!
17. A perfect gift for newborns, this Bunny Plush Thumbie is one of my go-to gifts. It can be monogrammed and is literally SO soft.
18. All the rage for toddlers - This Handmade Teepee Play Tent will look great in the middle of any family room! It also comes in other colours and there is a striped option as well!
19. Petit Lem has the softest sleepers and are loved by moms I know. They make for great gifts because they can be a tad expensive for pyjamas when not one sale. This Chinese Garden Footed Sleeper is really cute!
21. The cutest addition to any nursery - This Little Piggy Rocker is beyond adorable! (other animals also available).
22. Cute Cabin Cozy Sherpa Mitts! A great little stocking stuffer......I love the buffalo plaid!
23. This Stamp-a-Scene Fairy Garden stamp kit is perfect for toddlers/young kids who love crafts and like to keep busy. There are many different options (animals, trucks, etc.) to choose from.
24. This Chewbeads Mercer Rattle would make a great stocking stuffer. Perfect for teething babies and recommended by moms I know.
25. I love the collaboration with Emily & Meritt and Pottery Barn Kids - How can you not when the main colours are black, white, and gold! This The Emily & Meritt Activity Gym is so stylish and will surely blend into many home decor schemes!
26. What kid wouldn't love showing up at the local toboggan hill with this Donut Snow Tube?! So fun! It is also available in other colours.
