My favorite people to shop for are the littlest ones! I have nieces and nephews ranging in age from 12 to 3 months, so I always try to take the approach gift giving by finding a unique and creative gift my little gift recipient will enjoy! Hopefully, this gift guide will help you (or Santa) with your lists this year!

  1. Melissa & Doug Suspend Puzzle Game $16.90 @ Amazon. Think Jenga with a twist!
  2. Animal Alphabet Wooden Puzzle $40 @ MOMA. This adorable puzzle is cleverly designed and will help the gift recipient learn the alphabet, numbers, and of course the names of the animals.
  3. My-Mini Masterpiece Painting Kit $16 @ MOMA. Perfect for the future Picassos on your list.
  4. LEGO Creationary Game (3844) $55.34 @ Amazon. This is essentially pictionary with LEGOS.
  5. Furby $54 @ Toys ‘R Us. The Furby craze is BACK- the latest installment of these oddly adorable creatures come in a variety of bright colors, and have gotten a bit of a performance upgrade! If you have a specific color in mind, shop now!
  6. LittleBigPlanet Karting $59.96 @ Amazon. PlayStation 3 gamers will love the latest installment in this wildly addictive series. Any of the Little Big Planet games are great for kids (and adults too- I happen to be a HUGE fan!).
  7. Heirloom Knitting and Sewing Kit $65 50 @ Treehouse Kid & Craft. I learned to knit and sew as a little girl, and was always a fan of these kits. It was only with the past 2 or 3 years that I took up knitting seriously. I think being introduced to these crafts in my youth allowed me to pursue more challenging projects in adulthood, so I think it is important to try to pass that on. Plus, with youtube tutorials our kiddos have knitting and sewing help at their fingertips if adults around them can’t help!
  8. Andiamo the Dog $52 @ Giggle. Who wouldn’t fall instantly in love with this knit toy? He is quirky and charming and need of a new friend.
  9. Oeuf baby lightning one-piece $96 @ J.Crew. Oeuf has some of the most adorable knitted kids items on the planet in the softest of yarns.
  10. Jellycat ‘Bashful Monkey’ Stuffed Animal $56 @ Nordstrom. If you’re looking for the softest of soft plush toy for a little one on your list, consider any of the plush toys made by Jellycat. They are all adorable and uber-soft!
  11. Chunky Safari Lion; Chunky Safari Rhino; Chunky Safari Elephant Board books $5.99 each at Amazon.
  12. Girls’ glitter pursette in colorblock $39.50 @ J.Crew. What girl doesn’t love a glittering bag to store all her essentials. Fill this with lip gloss, stickers, and hair bows for the perfect girly gift!
  13. Make Your Own Robot Book $16.47 @ Amazon. This book has 15 robot templates and 3 DIY design sheets. The parts are interchangeable, great gift for a robot enthusist.

  16. Uppercase/Lowercase ABC Blocks $20 @ MOMA. The classic wooden alphabet blocks but with modern type & vivid colors!
  17. Charley Harper Memory Game $10.17 @ Amazon. The classic memory/matching game gets a face lift with Charley Harper’s delightful illustrations.
