Since I only have a toddler girl baby, you’ll see that most of my list features things that would be perfect for a toddler but I tried to throw in a few other kid items too. I don’t know what the cool kids are loving these days, ok? But I do know what the cool toddlers are loving these days, specifically Gemma because she says ‘look at toys mama?’ Meaning turn that Target app on, lady!

Just so everyone knows — we are those chunky plastic toy people. Always thought I’d be the neutral color slightly vintage toy parents but nope. We’ve got a big blue slide in our playroom née sunroom. We will be adding this PawPatrol tower to our mini amusement park of a living room this Christmas. Please try not to ruin the surprise if you see Gemma. 😉 She’s obsessed with it. It’s a must see every time we go to Target. She yells mighty! When she sees it. ADORABLE.

But as you can see, the PawPatrol Might Tower did not make it on my graphic. I may not have aesthetic standards for my living room any longer but I do for my online graphics.

I feel like this intro is so long you should be expecting a recipe by now. I may not go into super-depth like I did on the men’s guide, just because I feel like kid’s gifts are pretty self-explanatory. But let’s see what long wind I can pull out of this old bag (me).

A few highlights:

First off — this play kitchen is the cutest thing I’ve seen. AND it’s under $150 — at least it is at this time of publishing. Don’t @ me if the price moves around. We got one in pink from because the grey one (my original love) sold out but now it’s back and there is a white one too! You can find the grey one here.

If you’re going the pretend kitchen route, may I humbly suggest a pretend cheese board? Bah! How adorable and confusing for a kid is this? I love it. I also love this little mini baking set here that has a slew of matching sets too (that are for some reason cheaper??) There is a blender, a coffee set and a toaster set too. Cute! And if you’re going to give a mouse a kitchen, you’re going to need some pots and pants. This Melissa and Doug set is always a crowd pleaser.

Okay one more thing — Gemma has loved this Food Truck that she got last year for Christmas. She was about 16 months when she got it and played with it from then to now. It’s definitely a grow with you kind of toy! Find it here.

Are you guys a pajamas for Christmas kind of family? We are. You can always go the Christmas jammie route (love these from Nordstrom!) or Gemma’s favorite pajamas, Kickee Pants. We are slowly growing out of these but God I love a tiny toddler in a onesie. I think I’ve got a few more months of these sweet pajamas before it gets weird. Find Kickee Pants here! (They it true to size, but now we size up because Gemma is so long and growing. She is in the 2T and 3T so that we can use them longer, they aren’t too big with a size up for toddlers. I wouldn’t size up for infants though, stay TTS.)

I have to call out these precious slippers — I just got some for Gemma because her feet are always cold and they are little faux Uggs. They aren’t suede but they are super soft and great quality! She LOVES them too! You can find them here.

This Cookies for Santa kit is just about the cutest thing and you could use it year over year! Maybe more of a family gift, but what a precious memory maker! Find it here.

A few other call outs — love this Skip Hop Scooter! This one is a unicorn but there is also a puppy dog! So cute. I love — I mean Gemma loves — anything pretend right now. This doctor set is adorable and looks like it will last and last!

OH and yes. That’s a hooded blanket (AKA THE NEST) for a kid. LOL. Find it here.
