It is not too soon to start shopping (or at least saving!) for holiday gifts for your favorite little ones. Year after year, The Land of Nod curates the best holiday gift collection and I’m here to share the most impressive best-bets for the ultimate in gift giving for 2016.

For the littlest ones, one of these new activity gyms or play mats are perfect! Choose the Blooming Baby Activity Gym designed by Elizabeth Olwen($100),


the Ringmaster Baby Activity Gym from Roxy Marj ($90),


or the Emoji Baby Play Mat from Michelle Romo ($80).


Designed by Colin Walsh, the Carry Home Rocket Ship is portable fun for kids 3 and up. ($80)


The Street Vendor Cart will make the ultimate lemonade stand or whatever other entrepreneurial plan the kids dream up. ($250)


For the performers, the Superstar Stage ($300) and the Superstar Microphone ($60) will make the up the gift of their dreams.


The Land of Nod always has the most exciting and creative play tents and this holiday season is full of new introductions. The Decorate a Teepee and Patch Set add and extra layer of fun to the now ubiquitous teepee. ($200 for the complete set)


Suzy’s Cottage from Suzy Ultman is a charming play home that will look incredible in a little girl’s space. ($180)


The Floral Applique Pavilion Playhouse is another beautiful play space that might look perfect in a little girl’s room. ($200)


With a print designed by Virginia Crofts, the Perennial Playhouse has that look of your grandmother’s bedsheet turned into a tent. Of course the tent is a fancy framed camp tent so you’ve got the best of all worlds. ($200)


The most unique playhouse is this Horse Stable Playhouse ($200) designed by Danielle Croft. Don’t forget to throw in Scout the Horse Ride-On to complete the scene ($150).


The dreamiest playhouse of the bunch is the Planetarium Playhouse Canopy. I love these space-saving hanging canopy style tents. ($190)

My favorite dolls for the ladies are the Fairytale Dolls from Nun Studio. Choose Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel or the Princess. ($40)


Dolls can be just as spoiled as the kids this season. There’s the Rosa Doll Size Teepee by Leah Duncan. ($34)


There’s also a Mod Doll High Chair ($50), Mod Doll Pram ($70),


as well as the Mod Doll Bed ($60).


The Pint Sized Table and Chairs are just as cool as the doll-sized furniture, but for kids 1 to 3 years old. ($200)


I love the Off-Broadway Puppet Theater. It’s all the fun without taking up any space. ($40)


This year’s new giant plush is this friendly Dragon designed by John Murphy. ($150)

Explore & More Baby’s View 3-Stage Activity Center from Skip Hop

The choices for modern baby activity centers are really slim. I think that in the past I’ve only recommended two others, so a third option is entirely welcome.

Skip Hop is coming at us with yet another wonderful piece of baby gear this year and I’m super excited about this direction for them.

An activity center is one of those giant pieces of baby gear that is completely optional, but for some families, a safe and engaging place to put an active infant (4m+) can be really useful.


The Explore & More Baby’s View 3-Stage Activity Center (really long name!) features a 360-degree rotating seat and colorful, easy to reach toys. The foot platform can be adjusted to the right height, removed for toddlers and the activity center transforms to a play table when baby has outgrown it.


Retails for $120. You can find it right now at Babies R Us.
