Well, Halloween has come and gone, and whether or not we like it, the winter holidays are now staring us straight in the face. On one hand, we hate having to think of presents this early – it’s not even Thanksgiving yet here in the US! On the other hand, we both have a mile-long list of gifts we’d like to make for friends and loved ones and, well, these things take time! So to take a bit of the stress out of holiday gifting this year, we decided to round up some of our very favorite gifts for creatives into 5 easy-to-use gift guides – starting with babies and toddlers ages 0-2 years old! We’ve got toys to make, gifts to buy, and books to read (and keep or gift…or both!)
Now before we get started, a few disclaimers. We know that the prices of these items range from modest to expensive – we’re not saying you ought to purchase all of these things, think of this as a starting off point, something to get the creative gift-giving ball rolling! You should also know some of these items are affiliate links, which means we earn a very small commission if you purchase – we use that money to keep Crafting Connections up, running, and remaining awesome (and ad free!)
So without further ado, here are 20+ Creative Gifts for Babies and Toddlers!
Orla Kiely Shapes + Herve Tullet: The Big Book of Art + The Helen Oxenbury Nursery Collection + The Enchanted World of Winnie the Pooh + Baby Book Set (Includes Goodnight Moon, Harold and the Purple Crayon, The Runaway Bunny and The Carrot Seed, plus a plush rattle/teether) + Pantone: Colors
Bonus: We also love and highly recommend the Taro Gomi Board Book Boxed Set for beautiful pictures and sweet stories!
So these are a few gifts we will be turning to for the babies and toddlers in our lives – for holidays and birthdays – how about you? What would you add to our list? Leave a comment below!
