2017 Gift Guide: Babies, Toddlers & Kids

by Kelli Kehler

My favorite part of the holiday season is experiencing it through the eyes of my children. So naturally, one of my favorite aspects of gift-giving is sourcing special gifts for them — and each year it’s a new adventure as I hunt down items that suit their constantly changing needs. I’m big on art-based activities and sensory exploration at all ages, so I’ve rounded up gifts that celebrate learning in babies up to older kiddos (along with some cute pajamas, too). By design, many of these gifts encourage parent-child playtime and interaction. And since I juggled my baby on my lap as I typed this up, I’d like to think she contributed to this selection. —Kelli
