Kids Gift Guide

Balance Bike : Love this balance bike for helping toddlers develop the skills for riding a bike. And the color options are *chef’s kiss*

Toniebox : The best “splurge” toy for your littles this year. A screen-free listening experience for your kids to enjoy. Simply pick a character to put on top & get ready for a soundtrack of fun songs + stories. Love this for screen-free independent play time! (adding this Mickey Mouse character to our stocking this year)

Cuddle + Kind Doll : Heirloom quality and absolutely gorgeous! A very special gift from a give back company. Hannah Bunny and Eloise Elephant are my two favorites!

Kids Table + Chair Set : The quality of this kid’s table set is too good & I love the simple design. Great for endless tea parties & coloring sessions.

Montessori Alphabet Tracing : Love spelling out words with these wooden alphabet tracing letters. Add to cart for the preschooler in your life!

Art Easel : A tried & true staple for craft time in the Skidmore house. This Melissa & Doug option on Amazon also has great reviews!

Connect Four Outdoor Game : Oversized outdoor games are perfect for those lazy weekends at home. Something the whole family can enjoy!

Play Tent : My friend and client Amy gifted this play tent to us. It was easy to assemble, I love the string of star lights included, and high quality material. Madelyn loves going inside to read books and play with toys. Note: You definitely will need some room for this one, it’s not small!

Weather Station : I’m all about an educational toy & this weather station fits the bill.

Cash Register Set : I know not everyone grows up playing bank as a kid, but this cash register set is too fun to not include in our 2023 kids gift guide. Pair it with this lemonade set & you have an up-and-coming entrepreneur on your hands.

Toy Building Blocks : Such a fun (& pretty) building block set. Love the storage box for easy cleanup.

Wooden Tea Set : Such a sweet tea party set I’ve heard great things about. Tea time, please!


Kids Gift Guide : Under $25

Sounding Joy Christmas Book : Love all of Ellie Holcomb’s children’s books & this Christmas one doesn’t disappointment. Go ahead and add this one to your cart too.

Magnetic Drawing Board : Sometimes it’s the simple toys that are the real show stoppers.

Washable Sidewalk Chalk : We could play with sidewalk chalk for days in our household. This smaller set is a sweet option too!

Wooden Numbers Puzzle : Of course your resident numbers gal has to recommend a few educational number toys. Love the colors on this numbers puzzle & pairs well with the wooden alphabet puzzle.

Reusable Water Balloons : While it might be winter, it is never to early to prep for those spring & summer activities. And not to mention, you never know what kind of weather you’ll have down south. These reusable water balloons will last you all year long!

Cardboard Play House to Color : Love this under $25 gift idea that guarantees hours of entertainment for the littles. Pair with these washable markers & you have a winner!

Foam Magnetic Letters : Elevated refrigerator magnets. I’m so in! Not only have I had the honor of working with this sweet company, I am obsessed with their beautiful products!

Spiral Activity Book : This spiral sticker book is so pretty & fun. With endless options from animal habitats, bugs, vehicles, & dinosaurs – there is one for every kid to enjoy!
