TODDLER: Christmas Gift Guide 2017

When it comes to gifts for toddlers it all gets a lot more exciting in my experience, mainly because they start to understand what is going on. That anticipation, ripping open of the presents of Christmas morning and big smiles when they receive something they are excited about. It's when the magic truly begins! So, on with the gift guide...

Micro Mini 2 Go Deluxe Plus (£124.95) or Mini Micro 3 in 1 Scooter (£109.95)- I've done a full review on both of these scooters (here and here), as well as a comparison (here) if you want to know the difference between the two. Giving a micro scooter as a gift at Christmas may be a slightly more expensive option, but it is a gift that will last until their fifth birthday making it an investment. Isabella has so much fun on the scooters and enjoys them both with and without their seats. The Micro Mini 2 Go (the pink one in the photos below) has a steering pole and small foot rests, allowing children to be pushed along and it therefore makes a fun alternative to a pushchair. They both have adjustable T-bars, so will quite literally grow with your toddler (and we all know that happens way too fast!).  
Orange Tree Toys First Emergency Vehicles (£10.99) - When babies first start crawling and then walking they often love pushing things along because it allow them to practice their new found skill (and freedom!). Little cars, buses, trains and tractors are all perfect for this and Orange Tree Toys have a vast range of high quality traditional wooden vehicles. They are chunky, making them easy to hold and race around, while the bright colours are appealing to toddlers. This First Emergency Vehicles set contains an ambulance, fire engine and police car, but there are lots of other sets available including: London vehicles, farm vehicles, racing cars, diggers, cement mixers, dumper trucks, safari trucks and dog grooming vans. 
Games Compendium from Orchard Toys (£15.95) - Getting the family together to play a board game can seem like something of the past with so much technology all around us, but it doesn't have to be. Some of my fondest memories are of family game nights - snacks, a board game and lots of fun! Orchard Toys have an extensive range of both entertaining and educational games for toddlers and children. Their new Games Compendium (I've done a full review here) contains four games suitable for ages 3-6 years old: Old Macdonald Game, Monster Dominos, Red Dog Colour Game and Jungle Snakes & Ladders. They all support children to learn their colours, shapes and counting skills, whilst having quality 'screen-free' time. 
Personalised Dream Big Canvas Height Chart from Pepper Print Shop (£32) - The saying 'growing up too fast' is often used when talking about children because, well, they do. So why not capture it with this stunning height chart? Made from a cotton blend tear-proof canvas it is designed to last and the fact that it can be rolled up means it can be kept forever. I love the idea of Isabella being able to get this out when she's older and see exactly how tall she was at certain points in her life. She could even choose to use it with her children in many years to come. You can have the height chart personalised with your child/ren's name and date of birth and is available in yellow, pink, blue or grey. Pepper Print Shop also have another design based around a princess castle, which you can see here and a range of beautiful personalised prints/engraved wood plaques. 
Little Tikes Lil' Pups Just Born Puppy (£19.99) - Lil' Pups is a range of four cuddly stray puppies that are waiting to be adopted by your little ones. Each Lil' Pup comes with an adoption certificate and milk bottle, which will appeal to children's caring side as they look after their new puppy. When you press down on the puppy's head it wakes up, opens its eyes and starts interacting with its owner. All while burping, barking and snoring its way through the day!
Strawberry Cushion from The Fox in the Attic (£22) - If you're looking for beautifully illustrated home accessories then The Fox in the Attic is the place for you. Their range of cushions, muslin cloths, rattles, tea towels, cards and make-up pouches are simply stunning, with so much talent and attention to detail. The lovely Michelle started making and selling her creations back in 2011, which include fruit, plant and animal based designs. The watercolour illustrations are so unique and there is a lot of personality in each of the characters that children will love. Isabella has loved looking after and playing with their Strawberry Cushion. She talks to it, tucks it up in bed and gives it a cuddle before bedtime, therefore offering a lot more than a comfy place to put your head.
Cookie Mix Kit from Cookie Crumbles (£18.99) - Baking with toddlers is a lot of fun and a great way of teaching them about ingredients, hygiene and different flavours. Cookie Crumbles has a tasty range of gift sets and baking mixes perfect for children and adults alike. This Cookie Mix Kit contains a 100% cotton adjustable chef's hat (suitable from 2-14 years old), a Sunny Oat and Raisin Cookie Mix and a handy wooden spoon. The addition of the chef's hat in this gift set makes for such a fun way to get toddler's involved and it can always go in the dressing up box too. Isabella loves baking, whilst one of her uncles is a chef, so having a chef's hat to wear only adds to the enjoyment. 
What is your favourite gift for toddlers this Christmas?

  26. Amazing gift guide. I was eyeing the Micro Scooter for my 2 1/2 year old for Christmas but then I decided for the dolls house for her main present. I don't think she can scoot that well yet but here birthday is coming up in February so maybe then. The doctor is really cool. Chloe would love that. She likes anything that can be fed or is pretend play. Thanks for linking up to the #GiftGuideLinkUp
