With all sorts of gift giving holidays approaching in December, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about what to get Mr. Toddler.
Today, I am sharing loads of holiday gift ideas for toddlers! I have to admit that I am pretty picky when it comes to toys – I look for natural materials (mostly wooden), educational toys that won’t be broken that same day.
Toys need to be sturdy. My son is 2. He likes to play. And he likes to play hard. That means that I need to buy sturdy toys, sometimes I buy second hand, and sometimes I buy more expensive toys.
I prefer to spend a bit more money on a nicer and better quality object that I will only be purchasing once rather than shelling out however many dollars every month or so because x favourite toy was broken yet again because this time my son wanted to see if he could get the tires to go back on the car after he chucked it across the room.
This is the ultimate list of holiday gift ideas for toddlers! These are toys that serve a purpose, and consists of some of our favourite toys that we have at home, items we bought already for our kiddo, will buy, or are suggesting for relatives!
Holiday gift ideas:
These holiday gift ideas are for durable, educational toys! Here are the Welcome to Mommyhood family’s picks for toys for toddlers:
This is such a cute game! I love that the figurines are animal themed, a perfect gift for a toddler that loves animals!
Blocks and Puzzles
I’ve picked out a variety of puzzles and blocks here! They continue to be hits with my two year old! There are so many varieties and fun themes out there!
This dress up game is another fun one that can help little ones learn articles of clothing!
This is just so lovely! My son loves animals and it’s such a fun and educational toy! Right up our alley!
These blocks are such a unique twist on the typical, wooden blocks! How pretty!
This is just perfect for the animal lover! My kiddo adores his bowling game!
This magnet set is such a cute way to learn about the human body!
I love this truck and coloured cars! My son adores anything transportation themed, but I also like that the smaller cars are different colours. We can definitely use them for our Montessori shelves during the school year for a fun way to practice colours!
This wooden cash register is a fun and educational toy! It’s a great way to encourage some pretend play, too!
My little man loves to tinker and both of these are great toys for exploring minds!
We have one from Ikea (cheap) and it’s wonderful! One side of ours has a chalkboard finish, and we use it literally every single day.
Another magnet toy! This one is just so fun with a robot theme!
This ramp looks like so much fun, and can be used these cars, marbles, or anything with wheels!
I just think this is the cutest! It’s a fun way to practice manners, pouring, and just encourage some good ole pretend play!
Okay, I had to add this! It’s actually our son’s New Year gift and I am super excited about it! We got it second hand locally, but here is a link where you can see the same!
