Gift Guide : la la Littles


OK, here is the truth. I’m still shopping and still feeling a little unorganized this year.  You?  Please say, you too!  There are so many great ideas out there that it is hard to decide.  I’ve rounded up a few last minute ideas that I’m loving for the little ones this year.

I’d love to know what your little ones are asking for?  And what your favorite toys are this season.

01 / Yummy : I love when a writer / illustrator does classics.  We have always loved Maisy Mouse in our house & I think this collection nursery stories would be great to add to our library.

02 / Schleich Animals : Animal figurines are always a favorite and are kind of all the rage.  These are by far the best, in my opinion.  I’m getting a few new ones for Rocco.  One year olds can be hard to buy for and these are just perfect.  I like anything that can be considered a little collection!

03 / Electric Paper Airplane : I’m always picking up paper airplanes around my house …so you know why not encourage paper airplane making a little more.  What boy (or man -ha) wouldn’t love this?

04 / Whale Music Mobile :  This is just too cute and pretty much perfect for the baby who has everything.

05 / Jess Brown Doll :  These  handmade dolls are just the super coolest.  Elle is getting past the doll stage so I can’t quite justify it but if you can…please get one, in my honor.

06 / Jane Eyre : Start ’em young is what I say.  I totally love the idea of board book classics and the design is darling to boot.  This is, of course, is my favorite book but other classic titles are available also.

07 / Tin Robots :  A few of these were floating around my house the other week, while I was working on a special project, and my boys went nuts over them (which of course led to a bit of fighting, but hey, that is how I know it’s a great toy, right?

08 / Felt Mosaic :  A fun crafty present with great design in mind.

09/ Chinese Checkers :  Fun for the whole family.  I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never played Chinese checkers but I plan to cross that off my list after Christmas this year.

    Thanks! I know … Is it sad that I almost bought it for myself? Need a baby girl to gift it to :)
