With the holidays right around the corner and the uncertainty due to the pandemic creeping back up, shopping for the holidays is undoubtedly going to be online more than ever before. And sometimes figuring out gifts ideas for your little ones can be tough, primarily because they can’t tell you what they want. So I’ve gathered 40+ of my favorite toddler gift ideas, all of which have been tested and loved by my little ones and/or family and friends. And the best part none of them are over $100…actually most are under $20. But we all need a few “Santa” ideas for big gifts.
Gifts under $100
These magnetic tiles are brightly colored and fun to play with. They have been a real hit for my daughter.
Who doesn’t want to get a jump start at teaching their kids chores?! To be honest, my son was obsessed with his cleaning cart when he was smaller and I was convinced he would be my little helper. Wrong! Now he’s older and throws his laundry next to the laundry basket. But this was definitely a hit when he was a toddler.
Every kid loves pretend play, and this is a great alternative to a large play kitchen. Kids can sort, stack, and play with the cute ice cream scoops, cones and other icy treats.
I can’t say enough about this item! We got this for my daughters 2nd birthday and she plays with it constantly. Just lay it on the floor, fill the little brushes and pens with water and they are entertained for hours! They can be creative without making a mess. It’s a definite win-win!
This is a must have for any toddler/baby mom. This bike grows with your little one from early toddler to young child.
This projector storybook is a real hit with my daughter. You connect it to your smartphone and project the story on your wall. The best part is there are multiple add-on sets to choose from.
I love that Lego came out with these starter Lego sets for little ones. This set is for ages 2+ and there are some sets that are for as young as 1 1/2 years old.
Gifts Under $20
Melissa and Doug hit it out of the park with their version of modern day Colorforms. My son (and now my daughter) love these large sticker pads filled with reusable stickers!
Perfect for helping your little one develop their motor skills. These bright and colorful wooden beads are a great activity for quiet time.
I’m all about Busy Books and Boards that teach my kiddos. This one is great at teaching them about all types of fasteners.

Wooden puzzles are a given for toddlers. There are hundreds out there, but my little one loves this colorful fish one.
Trying to cook dinner but your toddler wont stop pulling at your leg? This has been a life saver in our house! We actually had one for my son as well when he was younger and he loved it. It plays songs and teaches kids the alphabet using the magnetic letter pieces.
These bath pipes are a fun way to get your toddler to love bath time.
I highly recommend these books for toddlers. They are really entertaining for them and come in a variety of topics.
