Sharing my 2022 kids gift guide! All our favorite things for babies and kids, trusted toys and gifts that we love the most!2022 kids gift guide

I say it every year, but this might be my favorite year of the kid’s gift guide yet!

Now that I have a 4 year old and a 7 year old plus another baby, I feel confident in what my kids LOVE and enjoy playing with the most. This list hasn’t changed a lot this year – in fact, many things stay on it as Emilia moves into playing with some of Max’s things. One thing I left off the list because it’s so extensive: LEGOS! Max is absolutely still obsessed with Legos and builds constantly.

And as usual, you can find a few kids favorites in each of my monthly favorites posts.

You can see some of our other favorites here: preschool favestoddler faveschildren’s books, and more! I’d love to hear below what you would include on this list too!


Micro Mini Scooters. Get the ones with the fancy light up wheels! They are so fun.

Little Sleepies PJs! If you read my week in the life posts, you know how much we love these PJs. They last for so long, are so soft. The best!

Type Set Co Boards & Letters. The kids are getting one of these for Christmas this year. The letters are SO pretty!

My Big Wilmmelbooks. We love books in this house, but these are the ones my kids can get stuck in for a good while. It’s almost like a where’s waldo, but with scenes. We have every version, we always travel with them on road trips and they are really fun!

MagnetBlox. Getting these for Jordan this year. I love them!

The Nugget Play Couch. We have two nuggets and they are EVERYTHING. The kids play with them for hours.

Toniesbox. I have gifted this twice now. So wonderful for kids who love music. 

Melissa and Doug Magnetic Dress Up Set. Emilia loves this so much that sometimes she sleeps with it in her bed. It is so fun to play with.

Rainbow Unicorn Rollerblades. These are what Emilia is getting this year!

Mondo Llama Painting Set. I can’t tell you how much these save me. I buy them every season. The kids LOVE them. I love that once they are finished, the paint is done and can be tossed.

Doona Liki Trike. The Doona car seat is by far the best purchase for baby this time around. I can’t wait until Jordan is a little bigger to get the trike! Planning on this for us to use next spring!

Magnatiles. This has been one of the best toys we’ve had – as long as we’ve had kids. Max still loves playing with these at 6 years old and Emilia loves them too. They build together and play separately.

Color Changing Raincoats. My kids got these as gifts last year and they are just amazing. So super fun! We have the umbrellas and boots too. They are such a great gift.

Construction Plate and Utensils. We love these plates! Max is a little too old for them now but Emilia has days where she loves them (especially the utensils) – and these are SO fun for young eaters that I had to include them again. We love these.

Car Road Tape. This is a repeat from last year because it’s a life saver. On a rough day, I pull this tape out and place it all over the house. The kids instantly have a road/race track/etc and LOVE it.

Jellycat Stuffed Animals. These are our absolute favorites!! So soft and squishy and cuddly.

3D Tic Tac Toe Game. I bought this for the kids this year. We love tic tac toe in our family. 

Hill House Rainbow Robe. My kids got these last year and I have the matching one. They are so cute, so fluffy, so warm, so perfect!

My First Play Table. We got this when Max was one and still use it constantly to this day.

Widgeon Fleece Jacket. Perfect for little babes – this is a velcro closure instead of a zipper!

1000 Things to Eat. Another book we LOVE is this 1000 Things to Eat. We have all the versions of this too. Max especially loves this one right now.

Melissa and Doug One Stop Shop. Another item that we bought years ago for Christmas – both kids still love this. There is tons of imaginary play that goes on in our toy room, and this shop is a huge part of it.

Crayola Scribble Scrubbie Set. Emilia LOVES these. Got them for her birthday last year and I got her another one this year. They provide a good hour of entertainment.

Melissa and Doug Snow Cone Set. My kids are big on their play kitchen and food. This is a new addition to our set this year.

Kid’s Sorel Boots. If you live in a cold/snowy climate, I can’t recommend the kid’s sorel boots enough. They are SO warm. I can get two seasons out of them with Max, and then I save them for Emilia as she grows into them. The quality is so good.

Big Coloring Posters. These are a huge hit. The kids love them!

Fat Brain Tobbles. Another gift I love to give. Super fun to play with. 

Duplo Bath Toys. I got these for Jordan this year and am so excited! 

Caboodles. I got Emilia one for her birthday. My kids love any kind of case or bag that they can stash their stuff in.

The Floor Is Lava. This game was the HIT of the holidays last year.

Illustrated Harry Potter Books. Max got these two years ago, but he’s SO into them now. We’re on book #3 and he loves them.

Melissa and Doug Wooden Puzzle Set. We’ve got a ton of use out of these puzzles – my mom also has multiple versions at her house and the kids love them. Emilia is really into them, but Max still enjoys them now too!

Little People Animals. My kids LOVE playing with Little People anything – especially the animals. I always kept some of these in my diaper bag and they were great for the car or being out in the stroller.

Chunkies Paint Sticks. One of our favorite things to color with. 

Babiators. My favorite sunglasses for kids. I’ve been using them since Max was born and they are indestructible. 

Anywhere Chair. All of my kids have these and we love them. 

Twee Fancy Chalk. This is one of my favorite gifts to give. Any kind of fancy chalk is super fun. 

Shark Slippers. These shark slippers are so fun. 

Slipper Boots. New cozy slippers for the year!

Yeti In My Spaghetti. One of our favorite board games.

Super Smalls Jeweled Gloves. Emilia loves everything jewelry and accessories. She will love these for dress up.

Super Smalls Jewelry Set. We have multiples and they are fun. Big shiny jewels!
