Holiday Gift Guide | For Baby & Kids

In the past I have only shared gift guides for adults, but this year I decided that it was time to add one in for the kids. I have two nieces and two nephews, so I always have a lot of gifts to get for little ones, and I’m sure you do too. Keep reading to find out what gifts your nieces, nephews, or kids will love.

Pillow // Joggers // Hat and Scarf // Classics Box Set // Wood Blocks // Toque // Rubik’s Cube // Bunny // Illustrated Harry Potter // Art Print // Moccasins // Suspender Pants // Teepee // Sneakers // ABC Puzzle // Sweater Dress

  1. “Love You to the Moon” Pillow. This cute pillow is a great gift for kids to remind them who loves them, and also is a great option if you prefer gender-neutral items.
  2. Print Joggers. Adults love sweatpants, so I feel it’s a given that babies and kids love them too. These adorable joggers are available in baby and toddler sizes.
  3. Hat and Scarf Set. One of the best things about having little ones, is choosing their outfits. Any Potterhead out there? Your little guy or girl will look perfect in this Harry Potter inspired hat and scarf set.
  4. Puffins Classics Box Set. This beautiful box set features 6 young readers classics (A Little Princess, Anne of Green Gables, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Secret Garden, The Wind in the Willows and Peter Pan). Whether you have a new reader on your list, or want to up your bedtime story game, this set is perfect.
  5. Wood Blocks. Toys that don’t make noise (on their own) and won’t break after one use are always a good option, so why not go with the always loved wood blocks. This is another great gender-neutral option that works across age groups as well.
  6. Pom-Pom Toque. I really wish this was available in my size, because you know I would buy it in a heartbeat.
  7. 2×2 Rubik’s Cube. Do you have a little genius on your list that loves a challenge? Why not try the 2×2 Rubik’s Cube? This is a great option for a stocking, or inexpensive gift for any older kids on your list.
  8. Stuffed Animal. Jellycat makes the softest stuffed animals, with so many options for every little one on your list. This is my favourite gift to give babies when they’re born or for Christmas. I gave my oldest nephew the monkey for his first Christmas (six years ago — how is that possible?) and “Mike” is still his favourite.
  9. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Illustrated Edition. One thing that I am excited about my oldest nephew growing up is introducing him to some of my favourite books, like Harry Potter. For Christmas this year, we got him this beautifully illustrated edition of the first Harry Potter. This is a great option for a new reader and younger kids that still like illustrated books, but want to start reading Harry Potter. The second and third books are also available right now, and hopefully it doesn’t take too long for the others to come out.
  10. Art Print. Do you want to gift something that will add some joy to your little one’s bedroom? This unicorn print would make a fun addition to any nursery (or big kid’s room) as would this colourful ABC print.
  11. Mickey Mouse Moccasins. Babies and toddlers always look so cute in moccasins, and these new ones from Freshly Picked are almost too much. Their collaboration with Disney offers so many cute patterns and sizes ranging from newborn to 3 years old.
  12. Suspender Pants. Pants with suspenders are always my favourite look for boys.
  13. Teepee. If you are looking for a gift for all of the kids to share, a teepee is a great option. They also look great in any space, so if you have a designer eye and want kids toys that will look sophisticated in your home, these were made for you.
  14. Star Wars Slip-On Sneakers. Much like Harry Potter, it’s never too early to foster a love for Star Wars in your children. These are perfect for your little Luke or Leia. Also, this is another thing that needs to be made in adult sizes. Why do kids always get the cute stuff?
  15. Alphabet Letters Puzzle. Toys that are also educational are always a great choice. This self-correcting puzzle set (each letter only fits into the corresponding picture) is a great way to introduce letters to your toddlers and is fun for a range of ages. My two-year-old nephew likes them because he can recognize the pictures, my three-year-old niece likes putting the pieces together, and my six-year-old nephew can match the letters to the words he can read.
  16. Sweater Dress. Lastly, this dress is just adorable. I can’t decide if I like this print or this one best. Perhaps this is one of those times when both is best.
