A Christmas Gift Guide for Toddlers




With only really 7 weeks left till Christmas (yikes!) it’s time to start thinking about the present buying for the little ones. I’m trying not to go mad this year as the kids already have a lot of toys and games but it’s so hard when you see something you know they’ll just love. To help me keep on track I’ve been writing little lists here and there when I see something nice or when Logan mentions something he would really like from Santa. With Harlow being the second child she’s a bit harder to buy for since there’s plenty to keep her occupied so I’ve put together a quick guide of presents I think she’ll love for Christmas.

Echo mic
Sometimes the simple things are the best and these echo mics are spot on. They’re cheap and cheerful and perfect for boisterous toddlers and budding young singers. This would even make a great stocking filler if your stocking’s big enough and most of these mics come in at a reasonable £2-£4.

Kidoozie my first purse
At nearly 2 years old Harlow still hasn’t got a proper first purse but this super cute Kidoozie one would be perfect. It’s a gorgeous little soft purple bag complete with a bright pink flower design and includes a mobile phone, keys and wallet. As well as this there’s a pretend lipstick, unbreakable mirror and debit card. I’m sure Harlow will love it and at £15 it won't break the bank.

Twirlywoos gift pack
Hands up who’s toddler loves the Twirlywoos? When it’s on the TV it’s about the only time in our house when Harlow will sit still. She gets all excited pointing and laughing so how could I not include some Twirlywoos goodies for her Christmas. This gift pack has the 5 main characters and is suitable for ages 18 months and up. Retailing for £12.99 you can normally find it cheaper by doing a quick online search.

Pj’s
It’s tradition in our house that the kids get new pj’s for Christmas. This normally happens at either the start of December or in their Christmas Eve goodie box, I haven’t quite decided yet. You can get all sort of lovely pj’s in the shops but Matalan actually have matching family pj’s this year with proceeds going straight towards funding Alder Hey’s new Research, Innovation and Education Centre.

Play food
Harlow already has a gorgeous wooden play kitchen which she inherited from her big brother but a lot of the play food is looking a bit tired now. I’m going to have a cull and throw out most of the run down play food so it’s time to start looking for some new sets. Melissa & Doug do some awesome wooden play food sets for little ones but I also quite like the odd bit of plastic food for a change too. There is a lot of sets out there which you can pick up for as little as £5 so get looking.

Balance bike
This very lightweight Chicco balance bike is perfect for getting your toddler into cycling and at £34.99 it’s a great price. If you’re lucky enough I’ve seen a few selling for £16.95 which is a major bargain. Logan had one of these balance bikes when he was little but I didn’t keep it so I’ve recently bought the pink version for Harlow’s Christmas. She loves watching Logan on his bike so fingers crossed she’ll love this.

Doctors kit
Playing doctors is great for the imagination and we did have a doctors kit in the house but it was so old it started to break hence why I’m adding it to Harlow’s wish list. You can find a lot of play doctors kits for £10 and under especially on Amazon or you can spend a little more and buy a character one such as Doc McStuffins or Peppa Pig.

Back pack
The days of our baby changing bag are now over. I can go back to my normal handbag but I still need something to keep Harlow’s things in (nappies, change of clothes, snacks etc) which means it’s time to upgrade her to a back pack. There’s so many designs to choose from but I quite like ones which have recognisable characters on so this Doc McStuffins back pack is perfect and only comes in at £2.95.

Vtech Toot Toot advent calendar
Instead of a chocolate advent calendar for the count down to Christmas why not purchase your toddler one of the Vtech Toot Toot advent calendars. You can choose from either the Vtech animals or Vtech drivers and prices range from £24.99 to £35.00. I also spotted a Play-Doh advent calendar in case your little one is really into that.

That's the list I have so far for Harlow but I'd love to hear your gift guide ideas for toddlers. Please feel free to share by leaving a comment or catching me on social media.
