Good Tidings We Bring To You & Your Kids!
Bring good tidings–and bright smiles–to the babies and kids on your shopping list this Christmas with these top gift picks from 2life.
The Junie Scarf: Keep your munchkin warm this winter with a handmade Junie Scarf. Hand-crocheted by mother-of-two and the blogger behind Lemons & Gold, these mini infinity scarves are available in two styles, original (pictured) and chunky, and a variety of colors. It’s actually ridiculous how cute and cozy kids look in these scarves!
Baby Goose Toy: Skip the plastic toys and opt for a wooden pull toy. This adorable goose toy from Indigo‘s baby collection is a perfect pick for the toddlers on your list.
Canada Olympic Sleeper: It’s never too early to show off your patriotic side. This adorable onesie from the Hudson’s Bay 2014 Sochi Olympic Collection will keep babies warm and toasty, even if they’ve already fallen asleep before the Opening Ceremonies begin!
Mustache rattle: Your tiny tot might be to young to grow his own mo, but he can get a head start with this adorable hand-knit mustache rattle from Estella. The soft toy is handmade by artisans in Peru, and it makes a gentle, soothing sound when rattled. The best part? You can throw it in the washing machine if your boy gets Cheerios in his ‘stache!
Retro Handmade Bunnies: Etsy seller Jane Foster is known for her whimsical screen printed designs and plush toys for kids. These rabbits are made of a cheerful Swedish flower fabric and love to be cuddled!
4-D New York Cityscape Puzzle: This is the ultimate toy for kids who love architecture, history and/or puzzles. Turn back time and rebuild New York City from the ground up. Once you’ve built the base, you can use the 4-D time sequence poster to place each building in chronological order, just as the real cityscape was built up over time. Available from Mastermind Toys, the 4-D Cityscape series is available for other cities, including Toronto, Paris and Shanghai.
The Rainbow Loom: One of the hottest toys on the market this season, the Rainbow Loom is the perfect mix of DIY and style. The crafty kid on your list will love designing and creating their own fashion accessories, which they can wear themselves or gift to friends and family. A toy that sparks creativity and imagination is always tops on our list.
The Night Before Christmas: Everyone loves this magical tale of The Night Before Christmas and award-winning author and illustrator Barbara Reid gives a fresh take on the classic with her newly released version. Reid’s signature Plasticine illustrations tell the age-old story through the perspective of mice (even Santa is a mouse!). Read this book to the kids in your life on Christmas Eve, and this gift will become a holiday tradition for years to come.
