Gift Guide: For Kids

No idea what to get the kids in your life for the holidays? I hope this little list of suggestions helps you find something you may not have thought of!

For kids toys that don’t look cheap and plastic-y turn to MOMA’s for things like these gorgeous Girard block, art themed coloring books, balloon racer and art easel/puppet theater:

For the chic new mom and baby, this hat and blanket set is anything but juvenile.

Got a Barbie girl on your list? Jonathan Adler came out with his OWN Barbie (complete with retro-cool cool accessories) and a sofa set that makes me wish it were my size!

Believe it or not, I actually have this Frog-o-sphere. My mom got it for me for my 30th birthday (long story). Anyways, it’s a great way to teach kids how to take care of a pet and the tank comes in a variety of fun colors for a boy or girl. I named mine Monday and Thursday because that’s when they need to be fed, otherwise I’d forget. I’m going to be a terrible mom….

For the tough to buy for tween girl, a gift certificate to Fashion Playtes allows her to design her own garment online-from dresses to headbands and winter hats! I would have LOVED this as a kid instead of just puffy painting everything in sight.

The Create Your Own playhouse looks like SO much fun- even for me!

The Roberta Roller Rabbit monkey pajamas are just too cute not to include- even if a kid wouldn’t want to wear them. :)

For the boy who wants to shoot stuff- soften him up with this marshmallow shooter (and it’s zebra print- bonus!)

Dwell Studio has tons of cute kids things, but these little art kits take the cake!

OK, this is super pricey and more for the parent but I couldn’t resist because it is so gorgeous.  Lilipad Studio’s boho-chic step stool is a designer’s dream!

Or how about their chairs? I die.

What little girls doesn’t want a gorgeous tutu?

This is so random, but I know little kids would think it was hilarious and awesome. A giant gummi bear, 88 times larger than a normal one, and on a stick. Crazy.

How about this adorable pirate hero cape set? Love it!

Do your kids happen to be of the fuzzy variety like mine? These doggy sweatshirts made me smile!

Want to make Fido’s owners feel special? How about a bag of dog treats customized with their dog’s photo? Or how about some Real Dogs California wine with their dog or cat’s photo? Now THAT would be an unexpected gift!
