Toddlers are adorable. Their personality, the cute things they say, the way they love us unconditionally. Christmas is a great time to give your favorite toddler a gift to show our love for them.
Toddlers are easy to buy gifts for. While a 10 year old may turn up his nose at the wrong gift, toddlers will love anything you get them (especially the box it comes in!). Though your toddler may express delight at any gift, you want to get him a gift that he will be able to use over and over again.
My toddler is equally excited when receiving a wooden puzzle or a slimy ball from the dollar store. But the bottom line is that the puzzle will get lots more use and provide many more hours of entertainment. It will be a toy that I can pass down from child to child. Though the dollar store toy may have cost a lot less, I will get much more for my money with the wooden puzzle.
Here are some great Toddler Christmas Gift ideas that toddlers love, parents love and will last for many, many years of fun play.
This Construction Tuck Sort and Match is a great toy. It teaches fine motor skills and toddlers absolutely love it! $47
If you looking for a mega-gift this is it! Every playroom needs a play kitchen. I don’t even think it’s possible to keep track of the amount of hours my children have spent playing house and cooking me dinner. This version is a hideaway play kitchen for houses that have limited space. $220
Remember this one? Chances are you had this ball bopper toy as a little kid. Toddlers never tire of putting in the balls, hitting it through the hole and replacing it back in the slot. Durable for many years of play. Great holiday gift for a one year old! $30
Every toddler is an artist. Bring out their talent with their very own art easel. An easel gives them a place to store their art supplies and a place of their own to create the perfect masterpiece. Each art easel can be used in 4 ways:
3. Dry Erase Board
4. Paint & Draw Easel with Paper Roll
This is one gift that they can use for many years to come! Tabletop easel is $65. Floor easel $120.
September is the perfect months to throw a baseball party! All the kids (and their dads!) have baseball on mind!
Send off a invite the shape of a mitt or baseball with all the information on it.
Food is easy – serve hot dogs in buns, popcorn, peanuts, hot pretzels – all stadium food. Baseball is a popular theme so you should have no problem finding tablecloths, plates, cups and decorations.
Dress the birthday boy in a jersey and baseball cap. If the kids are big enough you can play a game with them, or just practice pitching for the little kids.
One talent that completely bypassed me was cake decorating. I look to make a cake that cannot be messed up by someone with no experience. I just made this cake for my son using 2 9″ round cakes. Stack the cakes on top of each other and frost using white icing. Use string licorice to make the ball threads.
Send them home with a popcorn container (you could buy one in Target) filled with goodies.
Don’t forget the thank you cards – “Your gift was a real hit!”
