I Made a Gift Guide for Preschoolers, So You Don’t Have To!

As you may remember from this post, my sister and I both have an older singleton and then a set of twins. My twins are nine years old now (when did that happen??), but hers are just 2, and the sad fact is that’s a challenging age to shop for unless your kids are currently in that age bracket.


Melissa & Doug Pizza SetAs I brainstorm ideas for them, I’m also jogging my memory by sifting through photos of my twins at that age in an effort to see what kinds of gifts they opened back then: there was a lot of Elmo + Sesame Street, Caillou, tea sets + pretend food, and puzzle boards! I specificallyMelissa & Doug Wooden Latches Board remember the Melissa & Doug pizza set being a hit with both of my twins, and they, and their O.T., loved the latches board! They’re of such high quality, we still have them today (somewhere, in the dark corners of the play room I still need to sort through…).


Now that I’ve done the research for myself, I’ve curated some of the best gift ideas from the PBS Kids Shop and Melissa & Doug, which is a toy company with some of the most high quality products I’ve seen. You can’t go wrong with these brands, and the upcoming holiday season is the best time to shop for them–just in time for Black Friday!
