Toddler Holiday Gift Guide (And A Giveaway!)

 Dino Stamp Set ($25) | Plush Bear ($36) | Spock Tee ($25) | Book ($17) Dino Pillow ($40)



For one reason or another, I've found myself deliberating on what to get Luke for Christmas. You know, they need to be the perfect gifts -- stimulating, educational, and fun for him (and not just pretty to look at for me). We've nailed it down with a few staples, and most of them fit the bill listed above. I am a big proponent of wooden toys AND handmade items (support small business!), that encourage creative play and learning. There are so many options out there, and sometimes it can be downright exhausting tracking down those beautiful toys and items without wanting to throw in the towel because you have 20 browser windows open, and yet have managed to accomplish not a dadgum thing. Blast those life-sucking, online shopping escapades!

Lucky for us all, I was recently introduced to the carefully curated shop, BRIKA, where selected artisans sell their handcrafted items. They are all in one spot, so you don't have to trade in your sanity to find the perfect items! Hip hip hooray! The items range from home decor and entertaining, to apparel and toys for your little people. There is so much detail and thought put into every item and it's the type of shop that makes your soul feel clean and refreshed... you know that feeling I'm talking about? Everything is just so, and it's simple and sleek and durable all at the same time.

Anyway, I've created the ultimate toddler holiday gift guide from the artisans of BRIKA, which range in varied price points for every type of budget. And it seems to me they are a huge hit, because Luke was sitting on my lap as I browsed through the shops and kept saying, "Ooooo! Dinosaur! Bear! Dump truck, dump truck!" So, there you have the official endorsement from an actual toddler. Looks like Santa needs to add a pit stop at the BRIKA warehouse to his excessively long list ;)

Now for the giveaway! The lovely people at BRIKA are generously giving away a $25 gift card giveaway to their shop so you can snag the items you've spotted. To enter this giveaway, all you need to do is:

1) Sign up to join the BRIKA community here
2) Leave a comment below telling us what your favorite item is from the site!

Giveaway open to US & Canada. Happy shopping and good luck!

UPDATE: Giveaway now closed. The winner is Shannon Dohrn, #18!

Oh geez, as if I could pick one thing from there! I'm drooling over the forest friends growth chart and all the shoes bu Zuzii!! We have a 14 month old daughter and another on the way - I'm in full nursery planning mode and making a "big girl" room! :)
