4th Annual Gift Guide for Babies, Big Kids & Grownups

Posted on December 08, 2015 by Amanda Holliday | 0 Comments

It's that time of year again—time for our annual Holiday Gift Guide where we share what items we are loving for the kiddos and ourselves. We've put together a few of our favorites things for babies, toddlers, big kids, moms and dads. 


  1. O-Ball: this all-time favorite of babies always makes our list. This ball will be enjoyed for months and years to come by the littlest ones on your list. 
  2. Melissa & Doug Ring Stacker: We love classic toys for baby, and it doesn't get more classic than a ring stacker. We love the colors of this one, and that it is made of wood. 
  3. Oribel Portaplay: This brilliant jumper and activity center is our newest obsession. It transitions from a bouncer/exercauser to an activity table when baby starts standing/cruising, and then to a regular toddler table. Bonus points: the legs fold up for easy storing and portability. 
  4. Textured Sensory Balls: these will get a lot of use for babies and toddlers. 
  5. Little Tikes Trampoline. Want to keep your toddler active this winter no matter how bad the weather is? This trampoline will do the trick. 
  6. Green Toys Recycling Truck: We love all of Green Toys' products, but this green recycling truck holds a special place in our eco-friendly hearts. It's gender-neutral, super cute, and all babies love trucks and cars. 
  7. Tegu Blocks: Move over Magnatiles, Tegu blocks are all the rage now. They are pricey compared to traditional blocks, but the creativity and imagination they bring out of kids is worth it. They are fun for adults, too! 
  8. Radio Flyer Cruiser: Perfect for toddlers learning to walk, this walker is more stable than others on the market. And when your babe is cruising on his own, this makes a great toy bin. 
  9. IKEA Plush Toys: IKEA's new line of plush toys are designed using kids' illustrations. Check them out to see the actual drawing used to create the toys. We love that they brought kids' imaginations to life, and to store shelves.
  10. Encourage your kids' love of cooking early with KidKraft's awesome play kitchens.  
  11. Play Tent: Who doesn't love a good fort? These play tents make great reading nooks and places for your kids to feel like they have a place that is all their own. 
  12. GOVERRE Wine Glasses:  GOVERRE is a glass, portable, stemless wine glass with a silicone sleeve and a drink-through lid. No more plastic cups, no more spills. Brilliant idea from two fellow moms!
  13. Vitamix: Smoothies, baby food, soup, ice cream, salad dressings. You can literally make everything in a Vitamix. If you have a healthy foodie on your list, this gift will not disappoint. 
  14. Slippers: For the person who has everything, you can't go wrong with a pair of cozy slippers for the moms and dads on your list.
  15. Wine Club Membership: We love our Club W membership. Hand picked wines that match your taste preferences delivered right to your door? Sign us up! 
  16. Record Player: It is hard for parents to come up with hobbies they can do together, at home, after the kids go to sleep. A record player is a great way to unplug, listen to great music. And visiting record stores is so much more fun than iTunes and makes a great date night activity when you can get away. 
  17. The Five Minute Journal: The Five Minute Journal is a physical journal that has been carefully crafted to enable you to be happier in five minutes a day. Even parents can handle that!
