Christmas Ideas ~ Tots



See our more recent version of Christmas Gift Ideas for Tots here!

Gift Ideas..all I get asked a lot about gift ideas, so I thought it might be helpful to throw a few out there with some of my thoughts on a few of them. We personally own everything I recommend, and I will never recommend something we don’t love! I will also link to any reviews we have done or Play with Me posts where we have featured the item on Totally Tots.

I am also a believer in LESS is MORE, so although I recommend things, please know that things don’t make us happy…they are just a small addition to an already full life in Christ. I don’t in any way believe that Christmas is about stuff. I realize gifts are a natural part {especially from grandparents!}, and I love getting recommendations also, which is why I share with you! I may add to the list as I think of other ideas, so be sure to check back!

This is my list of ideas for tots, which is actually a wide range, gearing towards ages 1-3. I will link to everything where I find the best online price {most of the time it is Amazon}. Most links are affiliate links, some are not {if I am not affiliated with the particular company}. If you purchase anything through an affiliate link, you give back a percentage to our family…thanks!

Gift Ideas..


  • Baby Bible ~ This is the best Bible we have for the really young tots with a short attention span!


Books {just a few of our favorites}




Songs for Saplings (2)


  • Signing Time ~ We have #1 {pictured below} and are hoping for more! Ladybug signs so much more than Krash did and I think it is from this great DVD!
  • Praise Baby ~ even my boys still enjoy these, the praise music is simply beautiful and timeless.
  • Laurie Berkner ~ We LOVE this DVD, all of us!!!!

Little Bits ~ My mom makes these with ALL of the profits coming directly into our missionary account! You can see premade items here on the blog {which are ready to ship immediately}, or custom order your own special Bit through the website. {yes, that is Krash on the home page of the website!!!}120x90 LB image

Ladybug’s current favorites are her blankees {all premades here, custom here}, pillow, color squares, and her ball {premade here, custom here}. As a mom I love her lap bibs ~ they are perfect for messy tots!

The BIG Gift


I will be adding to this list if anything else pops into my mind. I am also working on lists for preschool, boys {similar to Pac Man} and moms! Throughout the season I will keep the buttons over near the top of the sidebar so you can refer back to these posts easily. I hope these lists help you as you purchase gifts for your own children or other children you love!
