Our three daughters are currently ages 6, 4, and 1. We love to use the holidays to focus on giving them items in the categories of “something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.” Here’s our holiday gift guide for kids 1-2 years old, with ideas in each category inspired by our 1-year-old, Margaret.

gift guide for 1-2 years old

Something You Want

Chelsea and West Play Tent – Margaret loves crawling, exploring, and playing peek-a-boo. This sweet play tent in “dot party” print is the perfect play space for our littlest girl. We love the cute dot pattern and the little flag at the top. It even includes a small bag for easy storage. You code TIDYDAD10 to save 10% off an order!

Janod Pull-Along Snail Instrument – This cute wooden pull-along toy is a fun toy for a little one who has just started walking. The snail shell can be removed to reveal a drum and xylophone, and the snail antennae can be removed for instrument tapping! We love it when toys are multi-purpose!

Way to Play: Flexible Toy Road – This set includes flexible, durable road parts that can be used on almost any surface, inside or outside! The set can get wet or dirty, and encourages imaginative play. We love that all 3 girls can enjoy this open-ended toy together. It’s a perfect addition to our toy rotation!

My First Warmies – This is Margaret’s current favorite stuffed animal! This soft plush hippo is microwavable, and filled with dried French Lavender. It can be gently warmed and is a comforting cuddle animal for our littlest girl.

Something You Need

Serenity Kids Grain Free Puffs & Meat/Veggie Pouches – We love Serenity Kids meat and veggie pouches, and now they have created grain free puffs with zero grams of sugar in savory flavors. Margaret devours these puffs at snack time! Use code TIDYDAD15 for 15% off your first order.

Zip Top baby snack containers – These cute reusable snack containers are so sturdy! They are designed to fit in little hands and cup holders, and have large, soft zippers that are easy for little fingers to open and close. They’re made of 100% platinum silicone, are dishwasher safe, and sold as a set of all 4 baby animal shapes, or separately. They’re perfect for snacking on the go! Use code TIDYDAD15 for 15% off an order.

Tubby Todd All Over Ointment – This rich, creamy ointment is made from plant-based ingredients and is a great balm for everything. It is fragrance-free, rubs in smoothly and moisturizes. It’s perfect for a little one’s skin!

Something to Wear

Primary cozy sweatshirt – We love having thick sweatshirts to add a warm layer in the winter. We’ve been eyeing these “cozy sweatshirts”, and they come in lots of fun colors. Use code TIDYDAD20 for 20% off your 1st order + free shipping.

Ten Little sneakers – These are the BEST shoes for new walkers. They are designed to support natural growth in little feet, with reinforced toe caps, no-slip tongue, and non-skid soles. Margaret’s first shoes were the Everyday Original sneakers in candy pink, and we plan to buy her the next size when she outgrows them! They come in lots of solid colors and are perfect for walking, running, or climbing at the playground.

Kyte Baby pajama set and Kyte Baby sleep bag walker – These pajama sets are made out the softest bamboo fabric that is super stretchy and comfortable for sleeping. The sleep bag is a wearable blanket that is cozy, comfortable, and keeps little ones warm while allowing safe mobility. This set is perfect for toddlers!

Something to Read

Little Doctors Book Set – We have lots of books at home, but this is definitely our first board book set that teaches medical concepts! This unique book set is written by a dad who is also a doctor, and teaches little ones about cardiology, neurology, and cell biology. A great medial introduction!

Yoto Player  – Our girls all love listening to audio books and music on their Yoto Player, and we love that the device has no cameras, microphones, or ads. We love to use holidays to add audio cards to their collection, and this year our littlest girl is getting the My First Disney Classics Bedtime.

My First Library: Boxset of 10 Board Books for Kids – Our littlest girl has a lot of hand-me-down books from her big sisters, but this set looks like a perfect addition to her little library. It introduces a wide range of learning topics, including ABC, Numbers, Shapes, Colors, Wild Animals, Farm Animals & Pets, Birds, Fruits, Vegetables, Transport.

I hope this roundup inspires some fun ideas for you in categories of “something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.”

About me

Hi, my name is Tyler Moore. My wife and I live with our three young daughters in a 700- square-foot apartment in New York City. I began my tidying journey when an early-30’s crisis invited me to reflect upon, challenge, and change my patterns of daily living. I quit my job as a school administrator, returned to teaching, and started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.
