Plates byUncommon Goods
Gifting picky eaters has never been more fun. We love this gift because it’s fun and practical and has your toddler’s name written all over it. We wrap these plates up with some quirky cups and bowls to complete the gift but these fun plates easily stand alone.
Findthis book on Amazon
One of our favorite go-to gifts for Valentine’s day is a picture book about love and a matching stuffed animal or pair of snuggly pajamas (or both). This year we’re wrapping upLove is a Truck with thesecute striped pajamas. To find the perfect book for your little learner, head to a local book store or secondhand bookshop for ideas, and when in doubt, the internet has you covered.
Here are a few of our favorite book/gift pairings:
Sold byPottery Barn Kids
We love curious kids and any toy that helps them learn, explore, and experience the world in a new way is a win in our book. We work in a woodshop building floating shelves, so it makes sense thatthis toolbox would have our name all over it — but you can find all sorts of interactive toys that encourage imaginative play. Start by thinking about what your kid is naturally drawn to (ours likes taking things apart) and see if there are toys that help encourage play in that same area.
Other toys like this that we love: This cute,matching tool belt, thisDIY woodworkers kit for older kids, thisclassic wood train set, thiscrazy cute tea set, and this wooden farm set from Melissa and Doug.
Tent byCrate and Barrel
If you’re looking for a bigger gift for Valentine’s Day this year, play tents are a great place to start. If you’ve got a little one who loves the outdoors (or loves to build blanket forts indoors) play tents are a great gift idea. We love this one from Crate and Barrel because it folds down for easy storage, but you can easily find something similar for under $50. We love the idea of stocking the tent with things a little explorer would need: bug-catching nets, magnifying glasses, adventuring attire, or a cozy cot or sleeping pad for nap time.
Gift set from Uncommon Goods
Putting together an art or activities kit is a go-to gift for us — not just for Valentine’s Day. We love art and activities sets because they are activity-based and can be assembled on any budget. If you want to DIY the whole kit, head to a local craft store and grab some fun art basics that your kids will love using. You can also purchase a pre-made activity kit or art box. We love that these kits come premade for kids of all different ages and skill levels.
