stocking stuffersSmall but mighty, these goodies are sure to bring a smile to the face of anyone lucky enough to receive them. For creative kiddos, omy's new glitter markers add that special something to any art project, and their versatile stick it rolls provide hours of coloring fun. goober crayons are always a hit, and this year they're in the form of building bricks that come apart or pop together for a wide array of possibilities. for accessories-lovers, yellow owl workshop's pendant necklaces are playful and colorful, while meri meri's enamel hair slides and wauw capow's fantastic xmas bow are sure to boost any 'do. bonton's christmas socks will make sure their feet are festive. copernicus toys' instant blizzard is pure (if slightly messy) fun. candylab's hamburger van is their latest design in the much adored series. bajo spin tops harken back to a holiday classic. alimrose rudolph squeaker. in the beauty department omy's nail stickers and rosajou's nail polish sets pair nicely for a festive manicure (but can also each stand on their own).
Gifts for babieswe've lined up some of the sweetest gifts for the smallest littles. we're currently obsessed with these oli & carol veggie teethers - teach them young! dëna's diversity kids are a great product that can be used in a multitude of ways: as a teether, for stacking, as a puzzle, for sensory stimulation, even as a bath toy! for snuggles, the alimrose dream reindeer . atelier choux christmas eve bib. if you're looking for something wearable, we love bonnie mob's moon print - seen here on the tummel sweater and knit hat. bonton's knit booties add a cozy touch to any outfit, darling. alimrose headband. egmont's walter dog pull toy is a super cute huggable friend who's also functional for those learning to toddle. for a book they'll treasure year after year, 'harold at the north pole' features one of our favorite characters reimagined in a holiday tale. oioiooi's 'nice to michu' rattle is a simple but super cute design made from maple and walnut woods.
gifts for kids 2-5These fabulous gifts are for the littles who are off and running but still preK - those cute and cuddly preschool sweeties. For their bedtime routine, grab them a set of dodo banana's adorable pjs and a copy of "all right already! a snowy story" - a super cute seasonal story. fabelab's big buddy uncle Theo makes a great snuggly stuffy or friend for story time. begin again's a to z dinosaur puzzle is both educational and fun - they won't even notice they're learning! andreu toys' magnetic faces is a new arrival we're obsessed with. we're also big fans of alimrose's dress up accessories that allow your little to match their favorite doll. great for imaginitive play! and speaking of our favorite dolls, meri meri's angel doll is a truly beautiful and seasonally appropriate choice. if you want to help them carry around all their favorite things in style, we've got tinycottons' adorable apples sherpa backpack. and last but not least, meri meri's festive hair clips are the perfect final touch to any outfit.
gifts for kids 6-10From babai's magnetic dollhouse that folds up flat for easy cleanup and storage, to eco-bricks for building wildly inventive but earth-friendly creations, we've got a whole bunch of gifts fit for the 6-10 year olds in your life. we're huge fans of mini rodini's striped sweater and hat - so festive! pair it with the 30th anniversary edition of the polar express (it includes a keepsake ornament!) and you've got everything you need for a cozy storytime by the fire. they'll also be charmed by rosajou cosmetics - designed especially for young kids, our selection of djeco arts and crafts kits, and molo's super cute animal themed bags. the new andreu toys solar system is cool and educational at the same time. and the animals observatory x reebok kicks from their exclusive release this season are (as the kids say) fire.
gifts for teensNotoriously hard to please and shop for, we've gathered a whole bunch of items we think will do the trick for those too cool teenagers. for staying warm in style, the new society XL scarf, molo kitty hat and molo heike vest all fit the bill, while bellerose's "vibes" sweatshirt is an effortless look. in the accessories department, oilily's lilac shoulder bag is colorful in all the right ways. and while they might play at being above family game night, we think the sunnylife lucite chess and checkers set will easily persuade them (and it travels nicely!). for artistic types, sketch.inc's basquiat kokeshi is a great addition for their room decor, while of unusual kind's paper dolls are a modern take on a forever favorite. the new society's bio sherpa sandal are a cozy slipper option. lund london's sleek water bottles help them stay hydrated and are the perfect base for self-expressive stickers. when in doubt - go with a gift card! it's universally crowd-pleasing and can be whatever value you choose.
if you know us at all, you know we're huge fans of wooden toys. they're so much more visually pleasing and sustainable than the alternative. we've got a huge selection, but we've highlighted a few of our newer favorites that are sure to delight littles of all ages and interests. for budding builders oyoy's wooden family bricks can be arranged in countless combinations, while oioiooi's number blocks set includes the cutest little characters and can help with counting and math skills. bajo's double horse pull toy is a sleek and unique piece great for those just learning to walk. plantoy's dj mixer board is a playful choice for little music lovers. and what christmas morning would be complete without a trainset? we love areaware's magnetic and colorful hovers trains. bajo's farm set will be a hit with animal lovers. the petit collage ferris wheel and egmont slide provide hours of wholesome fun. and the ferm living toro tea set is such a gorgeous design we want it for ourselves!
big ticket gifts
If you're looking for an extra special gift that stands out against the rest - we've got you covered. while these gifts may have a larger physical footprint, we can assure you their carbon footprints are still small. snurk bedding is always a fun choice - and something they'll use everyday! we like to think the creative sets encourage imaginative dreaming. babai's play tent provides the perfect (not so) little hideaway. ooh noo's toy chest will help stash all the new toys in style and easily cart them (almost) anywhere. a maquette dollhouse will certainly capture attention at 2 and a half feet tall. pair it with the brand's furniture, like the bunkbeds featured, for a complete vision. and although plantoys' drum set looks like pure fun, it also encourages creative and vocal expression, strengthens fine motor skills, and improves hand-eye coordination!
