The Melissa and Doug Fold and Go Dollhouse includes furniture and dolls.

  • Finding gifts that toddlers will love more than the boxes they come in can be a challenge.
  • I’ve already gone through that process with my toddler and have rounded up 28 of the best gifts for toddlers.
  • You can check out all of Insider Reviews gift guides to shop for everyone on your list.

Toddlers can be picky little humans. You know this if you’ve ever seen how long they’re entertained by a cardboard box or bubbles, only to leave a pricey toy sitting by the wayside day after day.

I would know – my 3-year-old has a big personality. But I’ve become a pro at buying gifts that she plays with longer than the packages they come in. Buying gifts for toddlers becomes even more complicated when you account for their rapid development. A 1-year-old might be enthralled by a toy that a 3-year-old finds boring.

That’s why I’ve rounded up 28 gifts that will be a hit with any toddler. Many of the gifts on this list have also been tried, tested, and well-loved by my own child.

Here are 28 of the best gifts for toddlers:

A developmentally appropriate puzzle

toddler playing with spike hedgehog puzzle

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog Puzzle Playmate, available on Fat Brain Toys, $16.95

This is a toy that can really span the toddler age ranges. Younger toddlers will delight in the challenge of matching shapes, while older toddlers can work on numbers and counting with the spikes. I’ve seen this toy meet my daughter at various stages of development since we started testing it over four months ago. 

Recommended ages: 18 months and up

A working vacuum

a toy vacuum with ryan’s world decals

Ryan’s World Children’s Toy Vacuum Cleaner, available at Walmart, $24.56

Toddlers love to imitate their favorite grown-ups. They also love their favorite characters, like Ryan from Ryan’s World. If Ryan’s World is a hit for your toddler, everyone will be happy with this vacuum that actually picks up dirt

Recommended ages: 2 years and up

A themed sensory bin

a bin full of sand and sea-themed toys

Creativity for Kids Sensory Bin, available on Amazon, from $15

Sensory bins allow toddlers to create their own little worlds, and this one requires very minimal setup from grown-ups. Choose from six different themes: construction zone, dinosaur dig, garden and critters, ice cream shop, ocean and sand, and outer space. My daughter got the ocean & sand bin for her 3rd birthday, and it has been a huge hit. 

Recommended ages: 3 years and up

Holiday-themed magnetic blocks

child assembling grinch maga-tiles

Dr. Seuss The Grinch Magna-Tiles Structure Set, available on Amazon, $44.95

Magnetic tiles are very much a tried-and-tested favorite in our house. When I tested this set, I wasn’t sure that the Grinch theme would be enough to make these any better than plain-colored tiles. But I was pleasantly surprised. This 19-piece set lets kids build the Grinch himself, a Whoville home, or a cozy holiday scene.

Recommended ages: 3 years and up

Their first toolbox

child playing with hape wooden toolbox

Hape Fix It Kid’s Wooden Tool Box and Accessory Play Set, available at Amazon, $21.99

Toddlers can fix things up around the house with this 17-piece toolbox. The small set is just the right size for toddler hands and includes a hammer, nails, screwdriver, screws, and more.

Animal-themed bingo

banana panda bingo

Banana Panda Let’s Play Animal Bingo, available at Amazon, $16.15

Toddlers can get in on the action with this simplified version of bingo. Each bingo card features animals in a different habitat, and the boards and tokens are made of thick cardboard that will hold up to rough play.

Recommended ages: 2 years and up

A World of Eric Carle puzzle

mudpuppy eric carle puzzles for toddlers

Mudpuppy World of Eric Carle Brown Bear 4-in-A-Box Puzzles, available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, $14.99

Four-piece puzzles are a step up from peg puzzles, another toddler favorite. This set of four puzzles is inspired by the popular book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?” As a former English teacher, I can’t resist a toy that encourages reading. Even if you don’t have the book at home, these puzzles will still be engaging and challenging while simultaneously exposing toddlers to color matching.  

Recommended ages: 2 years and up

The ultimate racetrack

Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate Corkscrew Tower

Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate Corkscrew Tower, available at Walmart and Target, from $29.82

It can be configured into one tall spiral or two smaller spirals for racing. You’ll get one race car, and the track includes a switch track, hazards, and a trap door. Five different locations along the track prompt the car to play various sounds, songs, and phrases. If you already have other Go! Go! Smart Wheels tracks, you can connect them to the tower.

Recommended ages: 1 to 5 years

An interactive thinking chair

blues clues chair

Blues Clues and You! Play and Learn Thinking Chair, available at Walmart, $49.44

If you have a Blues Clues fan, this real-life thinking chair will be a big hit. It comes with a mailbox, letters, and an interactive handy dandy notebook. The chair can detect when kids sit down or get up, and there is even a storage space under the seat. We’ve been testing it for a few months, and my daughter hasn’t let it leave our living room since. 

Recommended ages: 2 to 5 years

A color-changing bath book

Color Me: Who's in the Water? (Wee Gallery Bath Books)

“Color Me: Who’s in the Water?” available at Amazon, $11.99

Toddlers will think this book is magic when it changes color in their bathwater. The illustrations are the central focus with just a few words on each page. This creates an ideal environment for reluctant readers to pick up a book. Use it for some water painting fun out of the bath, too. 

Recommended ages: 1 to 3 years

A dump truck made of recycled plastic

Green Toys Dump Truck

Green Toys Dump Truck, available at Amazon and Walmart, from $19.14

Whether you have a sandbox, a dirt pile in the backyard, or a bunch of toys that need to be moved around the house, toddlers will enjoy loading this truck and dumping things out. The brightly colored toy is made of 100% recycled plastic. An added bonus: After this truck spends a long day hauling materials for your child, you can throw it in the dishwasher. 

Recommended ages: 12 months and up

Reusable mess-free coloring pads

Water Wow! 3 Pack - Dinosaurs, Adventure and Space

Melissa & Doug Water Wow! 3-Pack, available at Amazon and Kohl’s, from $16.99

We keep one in the car and always bring them along to places like the doctor’s office and restaurants. 

Recommended ages: 3 years and up

Recommended ages: 6 months to 3 years

A doll to love and care for

A starter dollhouse

Melissa & Doug Fold and Go Wooden Dollhouse, available at Amazon, $59

Dollhouses can keep toddlers entertained for hours as they imagine new scenarios and practice everyday skills. The set comes with 11 pieces of wooden furniture and two dolls, which is a big plus as many dollhouses don’t come with dolls.

My First Toddler Coloring Book

My First Toddler Coloring Book, available at Amazon, $3.99

Crayola Multicultural Large Crayons, available at Staples, $3.79

This is a simple yet exciting gift for young toddlers who are just learning how to color and develop their fine motor skills.

Thicker jumbo and large crayons are designed for toddlers to have success coloring. This book was one of the first coloring books I bought my toddler over a year ago, and it’s still going strong. 

Recommended ages: 1 to 3 years (coloring book); 3 years and up (crayons)

A push car with all the bells and whistles

step 2 whisper ride on car

Step2 Whisper Ride II Ride-On Push Car, available at Buy Buy Baby and Amazon, $74.99

My neighbors can’t help but smile when they see my toddler roll by in this push car. Step2 sent a review sample that we’ve been testing since the beginning of the summer. It’s still in great shape and handles hills and bumpy roads well. Some standout features include a storage trunk, a working horn, cup holders (for you and your toddler!), and a seat belt. 

Recommended ages: 18 months to 4 years

A cuddly version of everyone’s favorite Star Wars character

Star Wars Mandalorian The Child

Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child aka Baby Yoda Plush, available at Target and Kohl’s, from $19.89

Toddlers can cuddle up with quite possibly the cutest Star Wars character ever.

Melissa & Doug Let's Play House! Dust, Sweep & Mop Set

Melissa & Doug Let’s Play House! Dust, Sweep & Mop Set, available at Buy Buy Baby, Kohl’s, and Amazon, from $23.98

A customized tricycle

Radio Flyer Trike

Radio Flyer Custom Build-A-Trike, available at Radio Flyer, from $70

There’s nothing quite like a classic red tricycle. Radio Flyer sent this tricycle for me to test, and I’m impressed by its quality. Depending on how you customize it, this tricycle can grow with your child from 9 months to 5 years old. Available customization options include a classic bell, a canopy, and a footrest. What I appreciate most about it is the push handle — I use it to help my daughter learn to steer and make sure she is safe while learning to ride.

  • When buying a gift for someone who just moved into their first apartment, consider gifts that are practical and useful.
  • No matter what you choose, they’ll appreciate any of the 40 new apartment gifts below.
  • Looking for more gift guides? Find them all here.

The best part of moving into your first apartment or home is getting to create a space that’s all yours. Finding the perfect decor and picking out furniture is the exciting part, but there are also small necessities to consider. A laundry hamper, bedding, pots, and pans – these are just some of the purchases a recent grad or young professional will need to make.

We recommend getting them some combination of the basics they wish they didn’t have to spend their own money on, and the little luxuries that can make life infinitely better.

40 gifts for anyone in a new apartment:

This list includes a Sponsored Product that has been suggested by Gravity. It meets our editorial criteria in terms of quality and value.*

A comforting weighted blanket

A couple sleeps in a bed under a grey weighted blanket

Gravity Cooling Weighted Blanket, $195, available at Gravity

It can be hard to get to sleep in new surroundings, especially after a stressful move. Help them settle in to their new bedroom with a soothing and cooling weighted blanket. In a sleep study by Gravity, 72% of participants reported deeper, more restful sleep and 76% reported falling asleep faster when using the Gravity Blanket. This blanket comes in three different colors and in weights varying from 15 pounds to 35 pounds. Gravity recommends choosing a blanket size that’s about 10% of their body weight, but when in doubt, 15 pounds is a good place to start for those new to the sensation of a weighted blanket.

A shower caddy that will follow them through multiple apartments to come

Bed Bath & Beyond Simple Human shower caddy

Simple Human Tension Shower Caddy, available at Bed Bath & Beyond, $139.99

This shower caddy is one of the most useful things in my apartment. It uses an adjustable tension rod to hold itself into place and it can fit everything from a weirdly shaped bathtub ledge to a full floor-to-ceiling walk-in shower. It’s a little pricey, but Simplehuman is known for making quality home products that rarely if ever need to be replaced. I’ve had mine for more than three years and it hasn’t rusted at all (you can read my full review of it here).

A surge protector with USB and USB-C ports

plug best apartment gifts 2021

Power Strip with USB C, 3 Outlets 4 USB Ports, available at Amazon, $17.99

More likely than not, they’ll be limited in outlets in their new space, which can be frustrating. Help them solve their outlet shortage with this handy power strip which has three regular outlets, four USB ports, and one USB-C port. This power strip was also designed to allow space for another plug to be used in the second outlet and has a length of five feet.

A duster that can can extend up to three feet

Amazon swiffer

Swiffer Dusters Heavy Duty Extender Starter Kit, available at Amazon, $17.99

Dusting is one of the less glamorous responsibilities that comes with moving into an apartment.

An espresso machine

gaggia classic pro

Kitchen gifts are always appreciated, and there’s nothing that accentuates a new kitchen quite like a powerful espresso machine. If you have the budget to treat a loved one, we recommend the top pick in our guide to the best espresso machines

Stemless wine glasses that won’t spill or break as easily

stemless wine glasses

Riedel O Stemless Wine Glasses, available at Amazon, 4 for $44.25

When my partner and I moved in together years ago, their mom bought us a nice set of tall, thin-stemmed wine glasses — likely because I had once served her Cabernet in a mason jar. Though I like using those to entertain occasionally, I prefer these stemless glasses that are much more casual and much less breakable (…kind of like a mason jar). 

A gift card to buy the best set of sheets they’ve ever slept on

brooklinen sheets

Brooklinen Gift Card, available at Brooklinen, from $50

Our executive editor calls Brooklinen’s sheets one of the best purchases she’s ever made, and many of us at Insider Reviews feel the same way. They’ll be able to choose from quite a few weaves and materials as well as a huge selection of fun prints and colors. A basic full set costs around $130, for reference.

A personalized trinket tray for all their odds and ends

catchall

Greek Key Ceramic Catchall, available at Mark & Graham, $29 [customization is an additional $12.50]

Catch-all trays are the kind of gift that may seem underwhelming until you realize how useful they are. That was certainly the case when I was gifted one after college. Now I have a few of them around my apartment — one for keys and sunglasses by the door, one for my rings and jewelry by the bed, and another in the living room for lip balm, candle matches, and other small items. This one is customizable with their initials as an extra sweet touch.

A single-serve blender for smoothies and small batches

nutribullet

Nutribullet Blender, available at Amazon, $79.99

They’re likely not going to need a full-sized blender for any reason other than making large batches of frozen margaritas. Gift them a personal-sized blender for making healthy smoothies at home — and if they want to make a few frosty cocktails, they’ll just have to put in a little extra work. 

A robot vacuum that makes quick work of chores

Best Robot Vacuums 2021_Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX Robot Vacuum

Eufy RoboVac 15C Max Robot Vacuum, available at Amazon, $175.99

Vacuuming is one of the great time-sucks in life — literally. Give them back their Sunday afternoons with the gift of a robot vacuum that’ll take the work out of cleaning the house. We love this vacuum as a budget option that still performs well on carpet and hardwood. You can read a more thorough review this vacuum and our other favorites here.

Wall hooks that work in any room

loop wall hooks set

Loop Wall Hooks (set of 3), available at West Elm, from $30

If they’re living the big city life in a small city apartment, they’ll appreciate any extra storage they can get. These wall hooks can be hung up by the door to hold coats, keys, and bags, or they could go in the bedroom to store additional items that won’t fit in the closet.

A Dutch oven they’ll have for the rest of their life

Le creuset

Le Creuset 5.5-Quart Dutch Oven, available at Williams-Sonoma, from $370

A Le Creuset Dutch oven is one of those coveted kitchen items that most people don’t get until their weddings, if ever. It’s a special gift I only recommend giving to someone who really loves to cook. If you want to get them something a little less expensive but equally as useful, go for an eight- or nine-inch cast-iron skillet

A coffee maker for one

Black+Decker coffee maker

Black+Decker Programmable Coffee Maker, available on Amazon, $46.05

They can brew tons of coffee in this classic coffee maker — a priceless gift, if you ask me. For under $50, this machine has helpful features like brew-pause and a digitial display. 

A desk they can use in any room

Gifts for new apartment portable desk

Mind Reader Multipurpose Home Office Computer Desk, available at Walmart, $34.99

If they’re moving in the near future, their first apartment will likely be doubling as an office. This desk can be used while sitting or standing, and its complete portability allows it to move with them from room to room.

A toaster that’s as sleek as it is functional

New Apartment gifts Smeg toaster

Smeg Two-Slice Toaster, available at Williams-Sonoma, from $179.95

If they don’t want to sacrifice design for functionality, Smeg’s kitchen tools and appliances are the way to go. We’ve deemed Smeg’s toaster the best for the design-obsessed for this exact reason.

A friendly welcome mat

Etsy Welcome Mat

TheDoormatory Doormat, available at Etsy, from $35

Likewise, a welcome mat is another home basic they’re going to need but aren’t going to want to purchase. This simple one is fun enough without bordering on tacky. 

Candles that really make it feel like home

otherland candles

Otherland Candles, available at Otherland, $36 each or 3 for $89

Otherland’s candles have the most beautiful packaging and intriguing scents (think: sandalwood and amber, or champagne and saffron). This is one gift you’ll love giving as much as they’ll love getting, and it’ll add a sweet touch to their space. 

A jumbo pack of removable hooks that won’t damage the wall

command hooks

Command Hooks 9-Pack, available at Amazon, $14.99

You can never have enough Command Hooks — especially if you’re a renter who can’t nail anything into the wall. This multi-pack makes a great stocking stuffer.

A place to put their booze

deco handle tray o

Deco Handle Tray, available at West Elm, $51-$76.50

Whether they have a proper bar cart or not, one simple way to add sophistication to space is to store liquor and/or barware on a pretty tray. This neutral option is great for anyone who entertains a lot — they can use it as a serving platter or hold their at-home minibar.

A utensil holder for easy access to cooking tools

utensil crock

Textured Utensil Holder, available at West Elm, $30

Unless they absolutely love to cook, a utensil crock probably won’t be the first thing on their mind when they move into a new space, so this is a smart and useful kitchen gift they’ll appreciate.

A cool canvas art print to personalize their space

Redbubble alfred hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo Canvas Print (Medium, 12″x17″), available at Redbubble, $81.37

Redbubble helps more than 700,000 independent artists and designers share their work with the world through its online marketplace — all while committing to sustainable and socially responsible practices. The marketplace promises something for everyone with its “uncommon designs on awesome stuff.”

We love Redbubble’s original, quirky art printed on products ranging from canvas prints to cell phone cases to bath mats. This canvas print is a perfect piece of wall art for any Hitchcock film buff.

A cozy throw to snuggle up with

knit blankets

Knotted Throw, available at Crane & Canopy, $89

This is the blanket we fight over in my house — it’s cozy, warm, breathable, and supremely soft. You’ll find it in a few different colors at Crane & Canopy.

A curated set of pots and pans that won’t fall apart

New aparment gifts Potluck

Potluck Kitchen Essentials Set, available at Potluck, $295

Help them get their kitchen fully stocked with the right tools. Potluck makes cookware comparable to brands like All-Clad and Calphalon, but at direct-to-consumer prices that won’t break the bank. Shop from a selection of well-curated bundles that fit all of their cooking needs. You can read a more in-depth review here

A coat rack

marinello coat rack

Marinello Coat Rack by Union Rustic, $71.99

Coat racks can go overlooked, but they need a place to hang their hat (and coat) just like everyone else, especially now that they have a place to call their own. Rustic and modern at once, this one will work almost anywhere.

A new down duvet that works for every season

down duvet gallery 01

The Down Duvet (Full/Queen), available at Casper, from $260.10

Casper makes three equally excellent comforters, but this one is the more basic option. Its stitched compartments keep the ethically-sourced down from spreading through the blanket, and the organic cotton shell is gentle and cooling. 

A set of hand towels for the bathroom

Monogram white towels

The Classic Hand Towels, available at Crane & Canopy, $18

Hand towels are a necessity made all the more fun when embroidered or monogrammed. Crane & Canopy offers a variety of colors and styles for a personalized touch.

A beautiful set of coasters they’ll actually want to use

onyx marble coasters set of 4 chartreuse

Onyx Marble Coaster Set of 4, available at West Elm, $40

Hopefully, it’s a lesson they won’t ever have to learn the hard way: always use a coaster. If you get them this beautiful set, they’ll actually want to. 

A laundry basket that blends with any decor

round weave laundry baskets natural

Round Weave Laundry Baskets, available at West Elm, $70-$160

A laundry basket is another much-appreciated gift they’ll be thankful to not have to buy themselves. The lining of this one is removable, and if they already have a laundry basket, they can use it to store extra sets of sheets and towels. 

A beautiful set of dinnerware

year and day ceramic dinnerware

Year & Day Dinnerware, available at Year & Day, from $44

Most people’s first apartments (and the next few after that, if we’re being honest) feature cabinets full of mismatched plates, glasses, and mugs they’ve collected over their time in college. Get them a new set of dishes, glasses, or flatware from Year & Day, one of our favorite new startups out there. If you’re not ready to commit, you can read a full review of their dinnerware here

A salt lamp to give their space a warm glow

himalayan salt lamp

Himalayan Glow Salt Lamp, available at Bed Bath & Beyond, from $22.99

I swear by my salt lamp for creating a relaxing vibe at home. This one was gifted to me two years ago and I still use it every day. 

A signature scent for their new home

gifts for new apartment

Diptyque Baies Room Spray, available at Bloomingdale’s, $68

A room spray is a fun twist on the classic gift of scented candles — and you can’t go wrong with anything from Diptyque. During the cooler months, there’s nothing more gorgeous than the iconic, floral Baies (roses and blackcurrant leaves) scent, which you’ll find concentrated in this beautiful mist.

A smart device that can answer almost any question and play music

Echo Dot

Echo Dot 3rd Generation, available at Amazon, $34.99

You can’t go wrong when it comes to gifting the Echo Dot. It’s a small speaker with major power, and Alexa can answer all their questions about the weather, traffic, and more. They’ll also be able to play music, games, and control other smart devices around the house. 

A cost-effective investment in their seltzer habit

Target blue soda stream

SodaStream Fizzi Sparkling Water Maker, available at Target, $69.99

If La Croix sparkling water is their main source of hydration, they’ll love having a SodaStream around to make seltzer on demand. They can flavor it with drops meant to taste just like the real thing or create their own infusions — either way, they’ll save a lot of money over time. 

Note: The more expensive of the two options comes with two soda bottles and two CO2 cylinders, while the less expensive one only comes with one bottle and one CO2 filter. 

A storage ottoman to save them space

ottoman

Cole Classics Square Storage Ottoman, available at Target, from $76.49

Every extra ounce of storage space matters in a small apartment, which is why this storage ottoman makes a perfect (and decor-neutral) gift. The lid lifts to reveal enough space for throw blankets and a pair of slippers.
