Toddler Gift Ideas for Active Boys & Girls


We are right in the middle of holiday season with our family. We celebrate all four of our birthdays within 6 months which means gifts for everyone!

Ever since having our first son we have tried to be somewhat minimal in our gift purchases. With two kids 18 months apart a lot of things they can share and DO share so keep that in mind when you look through some of our favorite ideas below!

As a mom who lives in the midwest, we are inside for MAJORITY of the winter. (Sorry, I just don’t enjoy the cold weather beside looking at it from under a cozy blanket…) What better gift for your energetic kids than something to climb on.

I found these on Amazon and LOVE them. My kids love to climb, balance, swing, etc, so this JumpOff Jo Rocksteady Balance Builder set is perfect.

To go with this, I love these JumpOff Jo Rocksteady Balance Stepping Stones. Another thing we want to make for our sons is an indoor climbing wall. It’s not something we’ve done yet, but it’s definitely on our to-do list.

Another great item for toddlers is solid wood blocks. As we were making our Christmas lists I realized my kids don’t actually have traditional blocks and they LOVE to build — adding some Melissa & Doug Standard Unit Solid-Wood Building Blocks made total sense!

One of my go-to gift ideas for toddlers is bath stuff. 1) They are useful. 2) They are often something you use until it’s gone and then voila, no clutter. Here are a few things we LOVE.

The Green Toys Submarine is a must have in EVERY bath we do in our house. We actually use all our Green Toys in the tub. They are AWESOME.

BeginAgain bath toys are also a must-have in our tubs. The boys got them in their stockings as newborns and still use them. They are fine for infant chewing and don’t get nasty mold in them.

Bubble bath is always a win in my book and ALAFFIA is our favorite. I use it for my baths as well!

The last thing I want to talk about for gifts is whatever your kiddos like at the time. Right now my boys have been asking for a PJ Mask Rocketship. Normally this wouldn’t be something I would jump out and buy BUT it’s been on the list for over 6 months AND I found it for 70% off after summer.


So needless to say, they are getting some PJ Masks stuff this year and will LOSE THEIR MINDS.

What’s on your kiddos wish lists this year?
