Modern Kids Design Gift Ideas

It's hard to believe the holiday season is here. We've created mini gift guides for men, women and kids. And this week, we start with gift ideas for babies and toddlers. 

MKD’s Gift Guide for Infants 

Whether you’re looking for a gift for your child or someone else’s infant (or even an expecting couple!), these thoughtful presents will be remembered gratefully. 

The Nook Pebble Pouf is a multifunctional piece of furniture that will grow with little ones. Infants can start by pulling themselves up on the eco-friendly pouf, then transition to playing on it or sitting on it. It also works great for toddlers and bigger kids as additional seating! 

The Nook Organic Blanket works wonderfully as a stroller blanket on cold days or a cuddly blanket at home. Made from organic cotton, this sweet blanket is easy to wash and perfect for swaddling. 

Mark the important moments with the Milestone Baby Cards Gift Set. Parents of little ones will appreciate these cute cards that are great for creating unique photos to share with the family and to cherish for years to come. 

Miniware, from BONSUU, is made with the whole family — and Earth — in mind. Crafted from natural materials, the Miniware Eating Master Set will help your little one learn to self-feed. With suction cups to help anchor the bowls, your little one will be able to grab items without tipping over their bowl. Once they no longer need the suction cups, the set is still usable for many years to come. It’s simple, modern design and cool colorways make it a great addition to anyone’s cupboards. Combine with the Bring Me! Bag for easy portability! 

Collages can be great for mesmerizing little ones into sleep and providing them with something to focus on while they are laying down. The Petit Collage Red Elephant Deluxe Bamboo Mobile combines function and style with its distinctive elephants made from sustainable materials.  Now for toddlers...

Brand Spotlight: Barn

At Modern Kids Design, we're always on the lookout for eco-friendly bags and are happy to have found Barn! Like the bags, the name itself is pretty cool,  but don't be fooled.  While it means "children" in Swedish, these bags are not just for parents.  Look closely, and you'll notice the sheer versatility.  A single bag can be used as a backpack, gym bag, diaper bag. or briefcase.  While we can easily see adding a laptop to this bag, we know many reading this post are parents who, in all honestly, think about including some toys in bags, and that's okay. It works!
