2017 Gift Guides: Kiddos


My niece and nephews live far, far away in London so it’s been a few years since we’ve all been together for Christmas (two of them are old enough to want Santa to come to their house, after all). This year we’re heading to London after Christmas to see them! 

Knowing that all of my gifts for Ian’s family and my family will have to fit in our luggage, I kept their gifts small. Plus, we’re planning to take them on some fun outings during our visit. Here are some things I would have loved to pack with me for my little favorite kiddos (Avery, Chase, and Henry - pictured below).

Clockwise from top left:

This Piñata Money Bank is so fun and teaches a good lesson - to start saving young! ($20)

For the coolest kid on your list: the Ziggy Wooden Kokeshi Doll from the Moma Design Store. ($42)

The Nailmatic Water-Based Nail Polish Set is formulated just for kids and easily washes off with soap and water. ($18)

My niece would find the most creative uses for this bright set of MT Washi Masking Tape. ($14 for a set of 20)

This Book is a Planetarium is a magical pop-up book that transforms into six fully functional tools ranging from a real working planetarium projecting the constellations to a a musical instrument complete with strings for strumming and a message decoder. ($26)

Dragons Love Tacos is supposed to be hilarious - perfect for reading aloud. ($12)

These wooden plates (Robot, Cat, Elephant) are so sweet. I can see my nephews fighting over who gets to eat off of the robot plate. ($16 each)

The Kids X-Cap Light Up Hat is a cozy beanie with a removable head lamp, perfect for nighttime walks. Plus, they come in a few colors so you can pick their favorite. ($30) 

This Wave Puzzle is equal parts toy and decor that any adult would appreciate. I’m thinking of gifting it to my BFF (mama-to-be) for her nursery. ($25)
