Today I’m sharing my favorite gift ideas for the kiddos. I have to preface this post by saying it is closely tailored to Charlie’s age which is one years old. A lot of these items could easily extend to kids that are older but I am speaking from experience. Here are a few of our tried and true favorites…
Monica + Andy is a Chicago based kids clothing brand that you need to know about. My friend Monica started the business because she felt a void for organic, high quality products. I love what this company stands for (go mom’s!) and it helps that the products are seriously to die for. Their prints are amazing and Charlie has a full wardrobe dedicated to M+A favorites. We love the frenchie and bear pajamas and all of their blankets (Charlie has 5!). Also, if you’re gifting to new moms their cuddle boxes are genius (I give the hospital box to friends rather than flowers).
I bought this monogrammed weekender right after Charlie was born. It fits all of his clothes, diapers, toys, blankets and anything else we need for weekends away. I’ve also bought one for my brother and sister because they are just so good.
Charlie loves his rocking bear. My parents gave it to him for Christmas last year and he rides it at least 12 times per day. I love that it says his name on the side, too!
A baby cashmere hoodie!!!!!! That’s all.
Charlie’s favorite toy are the Melissa & Doug produce items. It’s so cute! He carries around the banana all day long.
Now that Charlie can walk, he is all about the Fisher Price popper toy. I remember this from when I was little! It feels special to watch him use the same toy.
Baby Hunters (enough said).
Jellycat’s. Buy one for someone you love and one for yourself.
Not photographed but so many of you ask about Charlie’s tunnel that you’ve seen on snapchat. It is his FAVORITE.
