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 holiday 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 with the Doona Liki, the world’s most compact folding trike. The sleek urban design of the Liki Trike allows you to be safe and have fun, as it elegantly combines functionality and aesthetics. With its unique and patented small fold, the ingenious trike simply folds and unfolds at the click of a button. Liki allows you to travel comfortably with your child as it fits easily in the trunk of your car or the airplane’s overhead bin. The Doona Liki Trike Gold Limited Edition offers an eye-catching silhouette with luxurious touches of gold, including a gold splash canopy, faux leather details, and gold aluminum profiles throughout. With a complimentary Premium Gold Storage Bag and black faux-leather handlebars, these upgraded elements turn Liki into a unique yet refined statement piece.


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 cuddly musical buddy

We love the Little Big Friends Soft Music Box collection! These soft and charming companions will become an essential part of your bedtime routine. The soothing melodies they play create a calming atmosphere, helping your little one drift off to sleep peacefully. We love the variety of melodies available, allowing parents to switch things up and keep the experience fresh and engaging. The adorable animal designs will add a touch of cuteness to your nursery. Plus, the unique material is soft, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean (which we love!).


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 with Foldable Headphones 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.

As a special bonus through the end of December 2023, ANB Baby is including a free Tonies headset purchase of any Toniebox—because the magic of the holidays deserves to be enjoyed to the fullest!



5. Safety gear for new walkers

One of our favorite gift ideas for toddlers who have everything is safety gear. 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. A fluffy, snuggly snowman

The Mary Meyer Putty Nursery Soft Stuffed Toy, Blizzard Snowman, is an 11" tall plush toy with a simple and understated design, featuring a stitched-on top hat and striped scarf that matches Putty Pinstripes. This sweet toy is made from luxurious, textured fabric in muted colors, creating a sophisticated color palette. The etched super-luxe fabric and beans in the bum add a luscious feel to the touch. With durable plastic eyes securely sonic welded in place, this toy surpasses all required safety standards for ages zero and up. Perfect for holiday decorating, it’s not only adorable but also easy to clean as it’s machine washable!


7. A soothing night light

The Cloud B Tranquil Whale Family White is a pretty whale that diffuses a soft light and projects on the ceiling of the room the waves of the ocean in movement thanks to a unique and patented mechanism. A marine melody and the sound of the waves (white noise) will soothe little ones on the way to sleep. Soft plush during the day, it transforms into a nightlight at night. A marine melody and the sound of the waves will soothe your little one for a relaxing sleep. We love its magical underwater light effect is thanks to the projection of moving waves. Parents can adjust the brightness and volume levels. The 23-minute timer ensures complete darkness and silence while the child sleeps soundly. 


8. An inspiring new book

Little ones love having books read to them. Show your toddler around the house in a book that’s indestructible! Indestructibles: Home Sweet Home is one of the books in the Indestructibles trusted series for easing little ones into storytime. Beloved by babies and their parents, Indestructibles are built for the way babies read.


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 blocks set

The Tegu Magnetic Wooden Block Set in Sunset 14-42 Piece Set is a thoughtfully designed product originating from the USA and consciously crafted in Honduras. Made from eco-friendly, sustainably sourced hardwoods and adorned with safe, non-toxic, water-based lacquers, these blocks prioritize both environmental responsibility and child safety.
