2016 Gift Guide: Babies, Toddlers + Kids

by Kelli Kehler

baby-gifts2 Whether you’re a parent, an aunt or uncle, a guardian, or even if you have close friends with little ones, chances are you might be needing some gift ideas for kids this season. Kids, no matter the age, crave exploration — maybe that’s a fun play gym for an infant, a bath time fishing pole for toddlers, or a cooking kit or art set for children age 5 and up — and there are a lot of great gifts on the market that stimulate learning while still being fun.

Each year, I’ve enjoyed taking time to find unique and special gifts for my daughter, and it’s always a bonus if the item is made byย a small business, or something that encourages her creative side.ย Taking cues from my own curious kid, I’ve created this gift guide for babies, toddlers and kids so you can celebrate the little ones in your life. —Kelli
