Easy gifts for kiddos of all ages?
LINDA, PARENT OF 2 YEAR OLD, 9 MONTH OLD

Ok. Another question for you... so we are about to meet with family and would love to bring gifts for the kiddos... We have procrastinated and need to be able to access these at a local Target or something easy. Need gift ideas for: 14 year old boy, 13 year old boy (with autism), 10 year old girl, 3 year old girl and 1 year old boy. Help?!?

Well the good news is Target has lots of great products for all ages. Better yet, you can grab some gift receipts so they can easily exchange which takes the pressure off a bit.

Gifts for older kid can be tricky unless you know what their interests are. You could play it safe by purchasing clothes that they can easily exchange for a different size/style or even for anything else in Target they've had their eye on.

For the little kids, Target has an amazing selection toys. It's likely that they will be receiving lots of toys over the next few days so perhaps it's best to pick up something educational that parents will also be happy to have more of. Books are always a great gift or these Lego Duplo sets are great for little hands.

Toys for two year old
SUSAN, PARENT OF 3 YEAR OLD, 13 MONTH OLD

Hi Natalie! Do you have recommendations for unique gifts for a two year old? She lives in California and has a backyard so I was thinking something she could use outdoors.

Since most two years olds love to engage in pretend play, these would both make for a unique and fun gift that can be used outdoors!

Gift for second baby
SUSAN, PARENT OF 3 YEAR OLD, 13 MONTH OLD

I'm looking to buy a gift for a one month old baby boy who has an older sister. He already has a lovey and plenty of clothes so not sure what else would be useful! Thanks!

My go to gift for newborns, especially when they have an older sibling and often times mostly everything they need, are booties from Zutano. They are cozy, keep little toes warm and truly stay on. And they are the perfect gift for this time of year.

mini kitchens?
LINDA, PARENT OF 2 YEAR OLD, 9 MONTH OLD

So we're on the hunt for a kids kitchen set -- ideally something fun, cute.. and most importantly -- has a super small footprint (for city living). Oh, and something that is BPA / PVC free please. My niece will love it. Thoughts? Any brands out there that you like?

The play kitchen from Plan Toys is both small and made from all natural, non-toxic materials. It’s very tiny but it has all the fun elements a good play kitchen should have.
