The holidays are quickly approaching so I have compiled a stocking stuffer gift guide. Online shopping has been becoming more and more popular over the years, who can dispute shopping from the comfort of your home? Below are some of our favorite items that would be perfect and purposeful stocking stuffers for toddlers and preschoolers. This post includes affiliate links.
Holztiger animals are a favorite for both my 1 year old and my 4 year old. They are great for independent play, animal recognition, and story telling. Holztiger scenery is great to help establish various habitats. Both the scenery and animals can be found at Maple and Lark.
Candylab toys have quickly become a FAVORITE in our house. Ethan is now 19 months and obsessed with his tow truck, Towie, especially. Lily is also a fan of the cars as well, they love to have them race. Happy Monkey carries Candylab Toys along with many other great toys, use the code Lauren10 for a special savings!
Raduga Grez Stackers
The Raduga Grez Oval and Sun stackers are perfect stocking stuffers. These are great for little hands and easy to grip, we often use the oval stacker for doorways in our builds. These stackers and more can also be found at Happy Monkey.
I was always against stuffed animals but there is something special about Maileg. The product is beautifully crafted and the perfect size for little hands. Seeing the products online is one thing, but seeing all the details in person, it is nearly impossibly not to fall deep into the Maileg hole. Maple + Lark has a beautiful selection to choose from.
