This roundup of THE BEST holiday gifts for the young toddler is perfect for little ones ages 1 to 2. There are many classics but some great new ideas as well. I’ll be updating the list with any Black Friday deals so be sure to bookmark it and check back!

Baby Stella was our babe’s first doll and she still loves her to death to this day. She is super-soft and her clothes and pacifier are all removable. Great for little ones who are just getting into imaginative play!
Raia got this teepee for Christmas last year (when she was just over a year old) and continues to love it. If you have the space, it’s so fun for the little ones to have a spot of their own to curl up and play or look at books. Plus, I love the muted colors of this particular one.
Ahhhh, the musical tea set. As much as I hate toys that make a bunch of noise, I can’t ignore how much Raia loves this. Another great toy to ease the little ones into more imaginative play.
Raia got a glockenspiel (which is very much like a xylophone in case you’re as unaware as I was) in her music class this year – and she LOVES playing it – but this Papa Bear one is so much cuter!
There are a ton of great books out there for our little ones, but I’m especially fond of books that pack a powerful message. This one has been a favorite of ours for a while now. It’s never too early to start instilling a healthy sense of self in our babes!
If, like me, you’re a fan of toys that actually help our little ones LEARN (and that look stylish to boot), then you’re going to love these sensory blocks.
Finally, the Cozy Coupe. Raia got one for her first birthday and it continues to be the most in-demand toy whenever we have parties with tons of kids over. If you have the space (indoor or outdoor), you’ll set yourself up for hours of entertainment with this one.
