The Best Gifts for Toddlers
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what’s on our holiday wish list for our toddler, and from family members wondering what to gift our toddler boy, so I figured I’d share some of our tried and true favorite toys right now for our 18-month-old, as well as things we’re asking for for him for Christmas as he gets in that 18-24 month age range, and is going to be a two year old before I know it!!!
Here is a big list of all the best gifts for toddlers this holiday season!
Harrison loves his toddler couch and jumps all over it every day! And this one is on sale this week!
If there is ONE gift on every toddler parent’s wish list that I keep hearing about, it’s a Tonie Box. Every parent I’ve talked to swears by theirs, and say that it’s the best gift they own, and are great on things like long car rides!
Apparently, these little things are all the rage for around the 18 month old to 6 year old age range. So what is a Tonie Box exactly? The Tonie Box uses audio storytelling to introduce pre-readers and developing readers to the idea of reading and fun characters! The music and stories that come with each Tonie make a great activity for toddler playtime.You buy tonies to go with the box (but this one on sale right now comes with a starter pack of a few key favorites!), and you can even easily record relative’s voices on it so your kid can hear their loved ones messages!
Here’s to raising kind kiddos! You can’t go wrong with gifting books. I swear we ALWAYS need new ones.
We love everything Manhattan Toy Co and this Laama is too cute – plays music and is the perfect Montessori toy!
We recently got this for our 17-month-old and he already loves it. I can tell this is going to be something he uses a lot over the next couple of years! and it helps me actually be able to get stuff done in the kitchen!
Lalo Play Table
This is on our wish list for this holiday season because lately our son has started getting into coloring (so cute) and this would be the perfect spot for all of his coloring and crafts!
Harrison can’t get enough of his sticker books – and these are our favorite type because they’re easier for his little hands to grab at his age (17 months)

Harrison has been so into coloring lately and it’s a new interest! (started around 16 months) it’s SO cute. We love these crayons and this sticker roll up coloring paper that you can stick anywhere! Makes for a great travel-friendly toy for toddlers.
How cute is this personalized stuffed football? Our son is OBSESSED with balls so this is a must!
If the family you’re gifting loves to travel, this slumberpod is a MUST! It allows the baby to have a pitch-black environment no matter where they are (in a hotel room, living room, etc), allowing parents to be able to move around the room after toddler goes to bed. We don’t travel without ours!!!
How cute!!! And has room for a friend or sibling too.
This is great because it can be easily set up and taken down in the house! So cute and fun for the littles.
We just got this helper tower and Harrison LOVES it!
Now that they’re on the move, it’s likely they need many more pairs of shoes to toddle around in! We love nike’s and my toddler always gets compliments when he wears his!
Our art easel has been a HIT with our toddler, and I can only imagine it will continue to get more and more use.
Dollhouse book shelf
Such a good price on Amazon, too! Makes a perfect gift.
How cute is this personalized puzzle to teach your toddler about animals and how to spell their name!
I don’t know about you guys but our baby boy LOVES baby shark. It’s sooooo cute, he loves to read this singalong book. But on our Christmas wish list is this microphone, too! I think he’s going to love it.
A play kitchen is the perfect gift for a toddler who wants to play house!
How cute is this for a little boy!?
This cute monogrammed sweatshirt! Such a good deal, too!
