Holiday Gift Guide 2018: For The Kiddos

Why is shopping for kids so much fun? Maybe because all the clothes are so teeny and adorable? Maybe because it feels great to introduce your favorite munchkins to stuff you loved when you were little? No matter the reason, picking out presents for little guys and gals is one of the highlights of holiday season. 

I have five little cousins who I am very close to, and in my circle of college friends, we've got three little nuggets, so my eyes are peeled for kid gifts at all times. Today I'm excited to share some of my best finds, along with some childhood throwbacks. 

Let's start with the littlest kiddos. These fleece jumpsuits from Carter's are so precious I can't stand it. On Amazon, they sell them in pairs. Why choose between two patterns when you can have both?

I found this toddler sweatshirt on Etsy in a shop called EarthCadets. I want to get it for every kid I know.

Last year, my friend Lindsey (we used to work together at a PR agency in Waltham, MA) opened her own Etsy shop called Peapod & Nate. She makes the most whimsical outfits, including this Hanukkah dress

She uses that same Hanukkah fabric to make bow ties too!

I also love the Peapod & Nate nutcracker dress

And this pattern with the gold detailing on the collar is just too sweet.

From party dresses to playing dress up, this purple tutu will make a stellar addition to any costume collection.

When I was a little girl, I really wanted a dog. I had a Pound Puppy (remember those?), but I always wanted a real dog. If a kiddo in your life is expressing that same wish, these dog and cat adoption play sets from Crate & Barrel are very special.

I flipped when I discovered this deck of playing cards from Uncommon Goods, each with an inspirational woman on the front. It's never too early to start learning about the women who changed history.

Can you imagine playing Go Fish and having your niece ask, "Do you have a Malala?" 

My sister's favorite game when we were kids was Cootie and I was delighted to see it's still for sale!

My favorite game was called Pizza Party, which I was upset to learn is not only hard to find, but is described on eBay as vintage! How rude! There are some boxes available on eBay, and thanks to Board Game Geek, I am able to share some photos with you.

Speaking of geeks, if you're shopping for a kid who is into science and space, these planet lollipops are pretty awesome.

Last but not least, if your favorite little one likes to help in the kitchen, this pancake flipper from Williams Sonoma is a cool way to jazz up a holiday breakfast. Kids can pour the batter, flip the pancakes, and douse them in syrup.
