BrickStix

Spice up your existing Lego sets with these removable stickers! This would be the cheaper alternative to the 2 million dollar set your child has been eyeing.

Hobby Horses from Mamas and Papas

Hobby Horses are one of my all time favorites. They are basic, they foster great imaginative play, and these ones have great fabric.

Bobbin Rocking Horse

Here’s a classic that is not only a cush toy for the little ones, but it will also look good in your house. A bonus.

Olli Blocks

These blocks are adorable and kids love them. We’ve got a set out on our table and kids can’t resist them.

A Maze and Marbles

These mazes keep little hands busy for a long time. I think the noise of the marbles moving down the wood puts kids in a hypnotic state. Which I’m cool with.

DIY Play TeePees (or check out the TeePee Guy if you don’t have the time to make one yourself)

I basically think these things are great visual impact on Christmas morning, along with the fact that it’s a gift that encourages creative play.
