I’ve had a couple of fellow anticipators reach out to ask for ideas for Christmas gifts and outfits for their little ones. I get it — it’s (shockingly) not so far away, and the holidays require a lot of planning with minis in tow, especially if you want things like stockings and tree skirts (<<these are the exact set I have) personalized! (Though I should not that procrastinators may be able to take advantage of the fact that these cute Old Navy Halloween jammies were just re-stocked! And more last-minute Halloween finds here.)
At any rate, I thought I’d share a few classic gifts for toddlers. I’ll do a separate post on gifts for babies (though they tend to like the wrapping paper more than the gift) and dressing for Christmas (hint: I am definitely ordering Petite Plume holiday jammies for my little ones this year), but below are some fantastic gift ideas for tiny tots. We own or have gifted many of these — and nearly all of them have rave reviews on Amazon to boot. Many of these are more on the “timeless” gift spectrum — well-made, could be gifted in 1990 or 2020 or 2050, etc.
Under-$30 Christmas Gifts for Toddlers.
*Thanks to the Magpie reader who suggested these! I actually already had them in her bookshelf, a gift from someone from awhile back, but had assumed they were too advanced. They are WONDERFUL and we read them close to nightly. They have no words and so we change up the narrative most times. I’ve found it so heart-warming to walk into her room and see her “reading” the pages. More children’s books I love that would make excellent additions to a stack of gifts.

Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers.
BATH CRAYONS + BATH DROPS (<<MINI HAS BEEN OBSESSED WITH BOTH OF THESE FOR A YEAR)
P.S. A few other holiday items I love for toddlers: a peg doll nativity set (had almost this exact style for mini last year and she played with it daily; it was a great way to introduce the story of Christmas to her); darling gift tags like these or these; a special plate for Santa’s cookies and the reindeer’s carrots; and an advent calendar.
P.P.P.S. Fall staples and fall trends.
