Holiday gift guide: for young toddlers (12-24 months)

Today, I am sharing more holiday gift ideas for toddlers! This time, I am focusing on gifts for younger toddlers - or those that are around one year old. 

As I wrote in my Toddler Gift Guide, I have been thinking quite a lot about the types of toys my husband and I prefer for our son. We go for sturdy, wooden toys that also serve an educational purpose. Toys should be fun, for sure, but that doesn't mean that learning doesn't happen while little ones play! 


One thing I was especially particular about when my son was 1 year old was that I didn't want toys that make noise. I don't mean instruments, but ones that sing and beep, and honk, and make a big ole racket, but a lot of my family members didn't quite understand what kind of toys we did want for our son. 


Here is a list of some amazing toys for younger toddlers that are not only wooden, but educational and most importantly fun! 


When picking out gifts for kids, it's of course important to focus on what the particular child enjoys, and then go from there. For the animal lover, finding some wooden blocks with animals on them, could be loads of fun! For the music lover, get them a wooden instrument! For more specific ideas, have a look below!

Nesting dolls


I have a special place in my heart for nesting dolls, being Russian ;) These are great toys for little ones though! Opening them up, stacking, placing them in size order, are all great for little ones! You can find all sorts of designs, too, but I'm particularly partial to owls at the moment!
