10 Perfect Gifts For A Toddler Girl

10 Perfect Gifts For A Toddler Girl

Hey, All!

Hope this fabulous Tuesday is finding you well! This very special post was inspired by my daughter, Joy, who will be turning one on Friday. I'll spare y'all my gushing about how time has flown by, but, seriously, I am shocked to be planning her (super simple) first birthday celebration. 

I will say that it has been a blast scouring the internet for interesting gift ideas for my best gal! Although this is just a sampling of the vast array of stuff available for little girls, I believe it strikes a nice balance between cutesy and quirky minus the saccharine. If you or someone you know needs some help shopping for a special pint-sized princess, don't hesitate to share this guide!

toddler girl gift ideas

1. Once Upon A Rhyme: Lullaby Renditions of Hip Hop Classics by Jammy Jams

Because who wouldn't want to hear a laid-back instrumental of "Big Pimpin'"? If rap isn't your cup of tea, have no fear! There are Pop and Rock options, too. (Bonus: Just for fun, play a few songs and see if the adults can identify 'em.)

2. Striped Floral Romper by The Children's Place

The only thing I love more than wearing a romper is seeing my daughter in one! 

3. Earlyears Forest Friends Shape Sorter via Amazon

Finally, a mess she can clean up all by herself. Woohoo!

4. Infantino Textured Multi Ball Set via Toys 'R' Us

These are great for developing gross motor skills, as well as learning about different shapes and textures. Plus, they're easy for small hands to grip!

5. Fisher-Price  3-in-1 Bounce, Stride, and Ride Elephant via Amazon

This is perfect for toddlers who crawl, cruise, or walk with confidence!

6. Baby Bling Chiffon Rose Stripe Headband via Nordstrom

Barrettes fall out and hats get snatched, but these headbands manage to stay on and look fab. 

7. Love U Lots "Mermaid" One-Piece Bathing Suit via Nordstrom

Full disclosure: The bathing suit pictured is sold out, but I loved it so much I had to put it in the graphic. I did link to a similar suit by the same company, though! It's adorable, too, I promise!

8. Li'l Shopper Play Set by International Playthings via Toys 'R' Us

Since we're moving to a smaller place, we've been getting rid of all manner of belongings, including our beloved play kitchen from Ikea. Our boys loved it and spent many hours "cooking" dinner for my husband and me. When I saw this felt food set, the sentimental fool in me had to include it in the guide.

9. "Bye, Felecia" Baby Girls Tank by Passive Juice Motel

This site makes me smile and squeal like you wouldn't believe! They've got shirts, totes, and pillows printed with sayings and images from Saved By The Bell to The Big Lebowski to Seinfeld to The Fresh Prince and more. 

10. The Secret Garden and The Wizard of Oz by BabyLit

I know I cheated a bit by grouping these books together, but I couldn't choose! As a book lover, the idea of sharing the classics with my daughter sooner rather than later is hugely appealing. These books are not only beautiful to look at, but educational to boot. Each one teaches a skill like counting, naming colors, and recognizing opposites. 


And that concludes this toddler girl gift guide! I hope you found it helpful. Did anything catch your eye? Feel free to share below in the comments!
