Can you believe that it is already Thanksgiving week? I could’ve sworn it was Halloween yesterday. With time flying by this fast the holidays are going to be here in no time. I have put together a list of my favorite gifts for toddlers. These are items my daughter uses or that I like to give as gifts.

My Favorite Gifts for Toddlers


Olivia and I love these adorable plates from Dylbug! If you follow me on Instagram or watch my Instastories, you have probably seen the fun Dylbug food creations we have created. These plates were created by Leslie, a mother of three, who was trying to think of a fun creative way to entice her toddlers into eating. How many mamas can relate to this struggle? I def can! One of my favorite features about these plates is that you can customize them with your child’s name in their favorite color!


Personalized books are so loved by Olivia and me. We received one as a gift and it is a keepsake we will save forever. Lost My Name has mastered the personalized story book concept. In these books your child loses their name and by using each letter from your child’s name a unique story adventure is created to help them find it. Another great idea for a personalised gift is custom face socks to make them chuckle.

Recently I was introduced to the world of Melissa and Doug by a friend. Melissa and Doug toys encourage learning and creativity. My favorites are the wooden activity boards like the one pictured above. These activity boards are a mess free way to get your toddlers creativity juices flowing, while also teaching problem solving.


I try to give personalized backpacks out as gifts as often as possible. If you’re like me, then you are always running to a play date, a sport, church, or some type of function that requires your toddler to carry lots of stuff. Stuff is my worst enemy I swear, but with a backpack I can throw everything I need for the day right on into it. Even better, my toddler has so much fun carrying around her own backpack, so it frees up my hands to do other things.


We love Meowsic! Meowsic plays five different instruments including the cat meow, has a microphone to record your music, and plays twenty songs. Meowsic has appeared on the Ellen Show & Live with Kelly.


It is no secret that Target is the mother ship to all mama bears, but have you heard about their new children’s clothing line? Target recently launched Cat & Jack and let me tell you I am obsessed. I discovered it a month ago and it is AH-MAZING! Cat & Jack not only has an incredible price point ranging from $4-$30, but they have a 1-year warranty on all of their clothing. If an item you purchased does not last at least a year, you can return it with your receipt for a full refund.

I hope that you enjoy these products as much as Olivia and I have enjoyed them.

Happy Shopping!

  1. love the idea of the personalized books! I have some from when I was a kid and I treasure them. We have that cat keyboard and we LOVE it. The mic doesn’t work half the time, but we’ve gotten so much use out of it. It’s a great gift for anyone with a toddler.
