While I’m busy with last minute holiday prep, aka everything since I’ve made procrastination an art form, I thought I’d repost the one and only gift guide I’ve ever written.
With the crazy, gift giving holidays right around the corner, here’s my list of sure to be a hit items for your twoddler. (Twoddler – the 5 second window between mobile baby and fully walking toddler.) All items have been tested and approved for fun by Beckett*. Bonus! You probably already have most of these items at home. Even better, twoddlers don’t care that something isn’t new. They actually seem to prefer the oldest, grossest thing they can find.
- Dangling wires
- Big cardboard box
- Little cardboard box
- Toilet paper roll (full or empty)
- Trash can (full preferred)
- Paper (tissue, wrapping, printer, newspaper, important documents, etc.)
- Floor Cheerios
- Medium cardboard box
- Clothes hanger
- Lotion bottle
- Video cassettes (Title/VCR not important. They aren’t going to watch them anyway.)
- Coffee cup (full or empty)
- Anything that dangles
- Plastic boxes
*Disclaimer: Beckett only tested items for twoddler funness, and possibly the amount of crazy things they make me say as I try to remove them from his twoddler death-grip. He wasn’t really concerned with safety testing. If safety is a concern for you, you should probably consult a different gift guide.
