‘Twas well before the holidays and momma was on the couch, peacefully sipping hot chocolate and knocking her Christmas shopping out. She needn’t worry about rushing to the store, because this year she’s using the Momma Society Gift Guide for Toddlers 3-4! She’s found something for everyone on her list (and in true momma fashion, checked it twice), so now she can sit back, relax, and enjoy a few blissfully toddler-noise-free hours tonight.

One | Custom What Big Brother Does Best Book | Uncommon Goods | This is such a perfect gift for a big brother that's learning the ropes with his new little sister or brother! The sentences are short, sweet, and easy for you or big brother to read.
Two | Custom What Big Sister Does Best Book | Uncommon Goods | Same thing here, except for a big sister. This would make such a cute baby/sibling reveal idea, too!
Three | Glow in the Dark Soccer Ball | Amazon | This is a fun way to take playtime into the night, especially since it gets dark at 5:30. The ball can be seen over 100 yards away and lights and the batteries are included.
Four | Animal Ukulele | Uncommon Goods | Have a little musician on your hands? The ukulele is a great first instrument, plus the bright colors and animal print are really fun for a little one! This one also includes music for two songs.
Five | Wooden Cash Register | Crate and Kids | This precious cash register is the perfect addition to any imaginary store! It has working buttons, a credit card + card slot, scanner, and coins + bills that will make for hours of real fun.
Six | Canvas Flip Chair | Walmart | This chair comes in the pink (pictured) and a light mint green that I love. It also folds out into a half matt, half chair, so it's great for reading or naps, too. I recommend a good coat of Scotch Guard to make this chair totally toddler proof.
Seven | The Ultimate Construction Site Book | Anthropologie | There's more than 60 pull tabs and moving parts in this book, so it's sure to keep little hands and minds entertained for hours! There are detailed descriptions on each page, so the book will grow with your little Construction Manager as they learn to read.
Eight | See-Ya Suitcase | Maisonette | I am in love with the vintage look of this suitcase, and it is perfect for the little traveler in your life! It's made of high-quality materials and when you're not jet setting, can double as a chic piece of room decor. PS: Take 15% off everything on Maisonette this holiday season with code: MOMMASOCIETY15
Nine | Unicorn Convertible Sleeping Bag | Target | Sleepovers will no doubt become 100% more magical with this sleeping bag in tow! It's machine washable (score), folds up into the hood for easy travel (double score), and is soft enough that no additional sheets are required.
Ten | Gourmet Grill and Shish Kabob Grill Set | Amazon | Is it hot in here, or is playtime really starting to heat up? This precious grill set has everything your little grill master needs for hours of gourmet. The wood is all sustainably sourced and the paint is child safe, too!
Eleven | Hearth and Home Wooden Tea Set | Target | I'm dying over this tea set from Magnolia's Hearth and Home collection from Target! It comes with 22 pieces, including the tray and spoons. I think this is going to be a favorite this year! There's also a breakfast food option!
Twelve | 150-Piece Wood Castle Building Block Set | Nordstrom | A few blocks can keep Brody entertained for hours, so I can't even imagine what he would do with a whole 150 of them! I love that this set allows for so much creativity and imaginative play! You can also take things a step further and paint the pieces for a totally customized look.
Thirteen | MagBot Magnetic Block Set | Uncommon Goods | Nine pieces + endless options. This set is easy to store (since it sticks together) and the details are hand painted.
Fourteen | Goldilocks and the Three Bears Toy House | Uncommon Goods | The first house was too small. The second was too big. But this one? This one is just right! Bring the fairy tale to life with this playhouse and character set! It also comes with a book that includes the original story + DIY projects.

One: Zip & Zoe Junior Backpack Set | Nordstrom $50 : This is a great set for a preschooler’s ever-growing social calendar. It includes a colorful backpack and coordinating lunch bag, ice pack, and water bottle. It’s perfect for school, playdates, sleepovers, and any other adventure.
Two: Garden Drive Square Jewelry Box | Kate Spade $40 : This is the perfect age for a little girl’s first jewelry box and this Kate Spade box is so sweet and perfect for any special jewelry pieces she collects as she grows.
Three: Charcoal Check Anywhere Beanbag | Pottery Barn Kids $129 : This beanbag is perfect for lounging. I love the cute pattern and the fact that it can be personalized!
Four: Superhero Cape | Nordstrom $55 : Superheros are fun -- enough said. I love this superhero cape for lots of fun pretend adventures saving the world.
Five: Ultimate Art Easel | Pottery Barn Kids $179 : This really is the ultimate art easel. It has a dry erase board, whiteboard and compartments to hold all the art supplies you could possibly have. This will provide hours of entertainment for a preschooler. I am also loving this adorable personalized smock from Etsy to help prevent some of the mess that can go along with preschool art projects.
Six: Squigz | Fat Brain Toys $25: These little suction toys are super addictive. Once you start sticking them together it’s hard to stop - which is perfect for toddlers who go ten million miles a minute. Fat Brain Toys is also has a promo going on with a $5 discount off orders of $25+ now - Dec 15th. Use promo code: FI-8473.
Seven: Wooden Cash Register | The Land of Nod $39: This wooden cash register is a great introduction to money for little ones while still being a lot of fun. It comes with coins, paper bills, and a credit card -- and the perfect modern touch. This is on my list for Brody.
Eight: Chronicle Books: Find Me: A Hide and Seek book | Barney’s $18: This is like Where’s Waldo for a new generation and a younger audience. So fun!
Nine: First Go Balance Bike | Barneys $315: The sweetest first bike I have ever seen. I love the retro style, the bell, and little basket. This would be a great bike to learn to ride on for sure. The bike design helps children transition from training wheels to a pedal bike. Splurge worthy for sure!
Ten: Think and Learn Code-A-Pillar | Fisher-Price $40: Coding is an amazing skill for young children to learn. It’s the way of our future and it’s never too early for a head start! Kids connect the segments to make Code-A-Pillar go forward, left, right or wherever they choose. You have to love toys that are fun and educational.
Eleven: Puppet Theatre | The Land of Nod $39: I am all for anything that sparks imagination and creativity so this puppet theatre was an easy add to this round-up. This theatre hangs in a doorway for easy set-up and take-down and it has pockets to hold hand puppets. I can just imagine watching all the plays now. There are also hand puppets that would make great stocking stuffers.
Twelve: Buffalo Check Convertible Sleeping Bag | Target $14: If your little one doesn’t already have a sleeping bag this is a great gift. It’s perfect for naptime, day care, trips to grandparents, and sleepovers. Not only is this sleeping bag cute (and comes in many colors and prints), but it’s also functional and folds into a pocket so it is great for travel.
Thirteen: Wooden Dollhouse | Hearth & Hand with Magnolia at Target $130: This is a new piece from the Hearth and Hand with Magnolia line, but I love the classic look of this dollhouse. I can see Isla playing with this for years to come.
Fourteen: First Classic Rainboot | Hunter $55: Brody is obsessed with his rainboots. It is hard to get him to take them off. He has 2 pairs right now and he will be getting a 3rd under the tree this year. I love the classic look of the yellow boots and Hunter is known for its quality. Can't wait to pass them on to Isla as he outgrows them.
Fifteen: Gigi Bloks 100 Blok Set | Amazon $85: Brody loves these blocks. One of his friends gave them to him for his 2nd birthday and he has so much fun with them. There are so many things you can build-- skyscrapers, forts, animals, castles or whatever creative construction projects kids can come up with. They come in plain cardboard so kids can decorate them too.
Sixteen: Super Coupe Pedal Trike | Simplay3 $90: This big wheel trike is so much fun. It’s the perfect combination of bike and pedal car. It has a 3-position seat so kids up to age 7 can grow with it. Confession: Brody has been riding it around our living room all Fall.
