Christmas is synonymous with presents - a heap of them nestled under the tree.
Think of all those packages, with the neat folds, crisp edges, and beautiful bows.
The best part about gift giving is witnessing the sheer joy on the recipient’s face.
And if this recipient is your tiny human, well, it’s all the more rewarding!
To make this season of giving an enriching one for you and your loved ones, here’s Greendigo’s gifting guide for toddlers.
Christmas Story Book
One of the best ways to spread festive cheer is by gifting your toddler a Christmas storybook. Stories are magical, whimsical, and oh-so fun. They bring alive those imaginations, and transport toddlers straight to the North Pole! We’ve listed four of our favourites:
- You’re My Little Christmas Wish
- Fa La La
- Pip and Posy: The Christmas Tree
- All The Colours of Christmas.
And for the older kids, these books are classic:
- ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas
- The Elves and The Shoemaker
- The Polar Express
- How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Surprise your toddler with a lovely printable Christmas puzzle that sets the tone for the entire season. You can opt for a 9- or 10-piece puzzle that paints a picture of some of the most beloved Xmas characters like Santa Claus, Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Little Drummer Boy, Three Angels, and even, The Grinch. Not only is this a super fun activity, but it also helps to develop your child’s vocabulary and special awareness.
Christmas Ornaments (DIY Kit)
The gleam of baubles, the sparkle of trinkets, the charm of ornaments… This is what makes Christmas decorating so very special. And you could include your toddler in the magical ritual by letting him or her make and paint ornaments. DIY kits come with simple cut outs that your child can jazz up. It’s the perfect gift, we think.
Christmas Tree (Miniature)
A mini-Christmas tree for your mini-me! How amazing is that? Imagine the excitement of opening up the package, assembling the parts, and decorating it with craft baubles from the DIY kit. Since the normal-sized Christmas tree, you may have put up at home, is inaccessible to your child, this one makes up for it.
There’s no child in the world who will say no to a packet of shiny and colourful stickers. Especially when they’re Christmas themed. From Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, to the whole herd of reindeers, merry band of elves, ethereal angels, and even baby Jesus himself, you can explore a range of gorgeous festive stickers for kids.
Christmas Clothing Set
‘Tis the season to dress your toddler in shades of red, green, purple and gold. Opt for cosy sweaters, comfy onesies, shorts and dresses, from Greendigo’s bespoke collections. Don’t forget to source a cute Santa cap, and reindeer ears, to make the outfit pop!
So, which one do you think your little angel will love most?
