Animal-themed apparel

Who doesn’t love cats, owls, and pandas? Animal motifs are very trendy in children’s wear, plus they’re really cute. Ask the parents what their toddler’s favorite animal is, because they almost certainly have one.

Wooden toys

Wooden toys accelerate early childhood development of hand-eye coordination. They’re also safer than breakable plastic options. Parents will appreciate the fact that you’re thinking of education and and safety when it comes to their child’s Christmas gift.

How to choose a gift for a toddler

If you don’t know the toddler you’re shopping for all that well, it can be difficult to choose the right gift. Ask the parents what type of toys their child enjoys. You can also ask for clothes and shoe sizes in case you decide to give the tot a more fashionable gift. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s age-appropriate and the child’s parents approve.

What can I get for the toddler who has everything?

If the toddler you’re shopping for is already particularly blessed, consider picking out a cute outfit or new pair of shoes for them. Small children grow out of clothes quickly, and there are so many stains that never come out. Books are also a good choice since toddlers are beginning to develop literacy skills.

What are the best DIY gifts for toddlers?

A classic DIY gift that any toddler will love is a blanket. Craft experts can quilt, knit or crochet a beautiful blanket. But don’t worry, even the less creative among us can make a winning Christmas blanket by doing a fleece tie in patterns the toddler will love.
