So here's 5 favorite gift ideas, in no particular order, for young kids!
There is never an occasion when a book isn't a great gift idea. They're fun, imaginative, and can be used again and again! Plus, they're easy to wrap! Some of our favorites include:
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Little Blue Truck
(or the Halloween version Little Blue Truck's Halloween)
Where the Wild Things Are
Is Your Mama a Llama?
You can pretty much find puzzles anywhere, I love to check out Target's clearance toys and games for them! Amazon also has a great selection. I just bought this T-Rex 3D one for my son's birthday and I can't wait to give it to him!
3. T-shirtsThis seemed like such a "duh" once I actually thought about it. Kids grow so fast they almost ALWAYS need or could use clothes. I got one nice, dressy shirt for special occasions, and one fun, play shirt (dinosaur of course). I'm always a fan of Carters and Old Navy for great deals and cute stuff (I just got next years swim shirt for $1.97)!
4. Play-dohI was hesitant to let this stuff into my house. I thought it was just messy and would cause me stress. However, I've been pleasantly surprised since allowing it into my house. It's not that messy, easy clean up, and entertains for hours!
Bonus: The mini cups make excellent Halloween handouts if your trick-or-treaters need a candy alternative!
