If you want to improve your child’s mind and sense of direction, then puzzles are one of the best ideas. They come in different types—blocks, jigsaw, and even various topics such as animals, numbers, and letters.

2. Musical Instruments

Are you observing your child’s love for music and sound? Then maybe getting a musical instrument is a good idea. Teach them melody and rhythm as well as the different notes at a young age whether it be a guitar, keyboard, or drums.

3. Sensory Bins

If you want to help your child practice their senses and motor skills, then a sensory bin can be one of the best gifts. All you have to do is fill up the bin with materials that you can find at home such as water or sand. Then add objects that they can touch, smell, or play with. The best part? It’s affordable!

4. Story Books

Improve your child’s vocabulary and love for reading by getting them a set of storybooks. Whether it be about nursery rhymes or princesses, let them use their imagination and enjoy the possibilities through the power of words.

5. Kid’s Tent

A kid’s tent can be something special you can give to your child. This gives them the privacy to play and enjoy while you sit down and catch up on your favorite shows in the living room. You can even put their favorite toys in the tent and make it their play corner.

It’s the thought that counts!

When buying gifts, always remember that there is nothing wrong with being practical. After all, they grow out of it later on. We hope our list of gift ideas for toddlers was able to help!
