10 of the Best Holiday Gift Ideas for Toddlers
The best gift ideas for toddlers aren’t just adorable and entertaining. They also promote learning in a fun way. If those gifts continue to be useful beyond the holidays, even better!
It can be tough to find games, toys, and books that are both fun and educational, so we’ve put together a list of holiday gift ideas for toddlers who have everything. From boosting their imagination and communication skills to helping develop their motor skills, these gifts cover it all! (We’ve also included a few gift ideas for toddlers that aren’t toys – because when you’re little, just unwrapping the present and playing with the box can be loads of fun, too!)
1. A toddler-sized thrill ride
Take your toddler for the ride of their life! The THULE Yepp Nexxt Maxi Frame Mounted Rear Child Bike Seat is a lightweight and safe rear-frame-mounted child bike seat with a contemporary design, providing premium comfort for your child. This quick and easy-to-mount bike seat is designed for children from 9 months to 6 years old. It provides both a smooth ride for your child in the soft and shock-absorbing seat and a safe, custom fit thanks to the adjustable padded 5-point harness. It also has added visibility, thanks to a built-in reflector. Water-repellent materials make this seat easy to clean and keep dry.
2. Their own little first-class upgrade for air travel
If you’ve got upcoming holiday flight plans with a toddler, Stokke can make your journey infinitely easier! The Stokke JetKids BedBox™ is the world's only premium, ride-on suitcase for children with an in-flight bed or leg rest feature. This travel essential combines Scandinavian style and aviation-inspired design with practical features for the entire trip and allows your child to rest comfortably or sleep during long and short-haul flights.
3. A smart buddy to play with
Tiny Love’s Wonder Buddies are designed with smart sensors, making playtime interactive and exciting. Your little one will love to play peek-a-boo with Wonder Buddies Leonardo. Hide the Wonder Buddies in a drawer or under a blanket, then hear the whistle as the Wonder Buddies call your little one to come and find them. Enjoy your toddler's pleasure and awe to hear the clap and cheering of the Wonder Buddies when the toy is revealed!
Perfectly fitting to their little palms and motor skills abilities, babies and toddlers can grab the Wonder Buddies to bounce or shake them and hear the rewarding wobbling and boing sounds, tickle their tummies to make their hearts glow, or press their little noses to make them sneeze. They can even feed them a carrot, apple, or cheese to hear them nibble, then put them to bed for sweet, amusing snoring.
4. A read-aloud adventure
Meet the Toniebox, a new audio system designed for little listeners. Turn it on, pop a magnetic Tonie figurine on top, and let the audio adventure begin! Snuggle-able and durable, the Toniebox is soft enough to cuddle and tough enough to handle hands-on kids. The Tonies Toniebox Playtime Puppy Starter Set features a select compilation of the most popular traditional children's songs for playtime, like “The Wheels on the Bus,” “If You're Happy and You Know It,” and more. This set also includes a charging station to power your Toniebox battery (up to 7 hours of battery life) and an instruction manual.
Our favorite feature of the Toniebox? It grows with your child! Each hand-painted collectible Tonie figurine has new stories and songs, and they’re easy for a small child to swap out. Whether educational content, audiobooks, or sing-along songs, each Tonie figurine is a unique listening experience.
5. Safety gear for new walkers
Maybe not fun, but it certainly is a practical gift! Keep little ones contained and in view with the Skip Hop Retractable Mesh Baby Gate. A cinch to install, the customizable wall mounts ensure a great fit, with or without baseboards.
6. Super fun bath toys
Toddlers love water play! You can make bath time even more fun with the SKIP HOP Sort and Spin Fishbowl Sorter Bath Toy. Your toddler can sort six friendly squirters into their own color-coded cut-outs in the fishbowl. Then spin to dump them out for squirt-time fun! The fishbowl floats or sticks on the wall with a suction cup for easy access.
7. A soothing night light
Provide soothing comfort to your baby at night with the Tiny Love Meadow Days Sound 'n Sleep Projector Soother. This rechargeable smart-soother's built-in sensor automatically activates soothing music and projects soft, starry lights when your little one cries, helping lull them back into a peaceful slumber. An auto-timer can be set for 15, 30, or 60 minutes of operation before shutting down. Parents can choose their child's favorite songs and download up to an hour of them using the soother's built-in MP3 player.
This soother includes 35 minutes of uninterrupted calming sounds with 22 different melodies and a collection of nature sounds to soothe your child to sleep. The soft, glowing night light helps comfort your toddler during quiet times or nap time. This projector soother includes a rechargeable battery and USB charger. Tiny Love strives to identify the latest discoveries in child development and translate them into engaging, interactive toys that nurture skills and delight the senses.
8. An inspiring new book
Every child sometimes needs a little extra encouragement -- a reminder that they are capable, resilient, and loved no matter what. Maybe it’s on the first day of school or before a music recital or trying out for a team or maybe it’s before going to the birthday party of a brand new friend. I Believe in You, a board book by Sabrina Moyle is the book for just that moment––an irresistibly sweet tale about a little dragon learning to spread his wings and a unicorn who offers unconditional support and motivation along the way.
9. Artwork they can create with their feet
If your toddler is bored with the same old chalk activities, like four square and hopscotch, they’ll love CHALKTVITY Stomp N Stamps. Stomp N Stamps bring some sport to their artistic side and make chalk play a fast-paced and physical activity. Simply strap Stomp N Stamps to your toddler’s feet in your driveway or on the sidewalk, and let them trace their steps with the moon and stars. Just fill the bases with the chalk color of their choice and strap them to their feet. They’re in control of their own universe with these awesome stompers. Plus, the Chalktivity Powdered Chalk is non-toxic and washable, so it’s super safe for your children.
10. A wooden puzzle
Cardinal’s Baby Shark Chunky Wood Sound Puzzle provides a fun, engaging way for toddlers to learn shape and sound recognition. Best of all, they get to hear the song they love over and over again! Big, chunky pieces fit securely into board spaces, triggering the song that started it all, the Baby Shark Song. This fun, durable puzzle features Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Grandma Shark, Grandpa Shark, and, of course, Baby Shark. Toddlers will love it!
