    Holiday Gift Ideas for Babies and Toddlers

    holiday gift guides for toddlers and babies

    This post has been updated for 2022.

    We are often asked “what is your favorite product for____ or what do you recommend for ____”. While I don’t always have the answers, and most things I do is by trial and error, I have learned a lot and love recommending products. Putting together these guides together is so much fun, and with the help of some moms that I polled, I feel confident in the choices. Most of these gifts are gender neutral as well. Here are our Holiday Gift Ideas for Babies and Toddlers.

    Our most very favorite toys that have now lasted 3+ years and get played with over and over again and by all my little one’s friends no matter the age are from lovevery. They can be a tad pricey, but because they are such high quality and last forever, they are totally worth it. You can use my link if you would like!
