Fret not--we’ve rounded up our favorite gift items of 2020 for babies and toddlers.

Larktale scoobi scooter

For Kiddos On-the-Go: New this season from Larktale, the Scoobi is an oh-so-fun set of wheels for toddlers and kids ages 2-5. Crafted to transform from a balance bike, to a tricycle, to a scooter, the Scoobi is easy to use, super-safe, and easy to fold up and store when not in use (yes, we can hear apartment-dwelling parents breathing a sigh of relief). It also comes in an array of fun colors, so there’s a style for every child’s tastes! $99.99 (for a limited time), larktale.com

For Chilly Winter Days: Brrr, temperatures are dropping all over the country and no one wants their little one shivering during a day out and about! These oh-so-sweet mittens from celeb mama Lauren Conrad’s shop The Little Market are just the ticket to warm little hands. Not only are these cute mittens (from ages 12-18 months) handmade by artisans in Bolivia from Peruvian Alpaca wool, but proceeds from the purchase go towards supporting the livelihood of the makers. $24, thelittlemarket.com

nico and yeye space rug

For the Nursery: Designing a nursery or looking to upgrade your child’s playroom? As The Dude once said: A good rug really ties the room together! We love this Outer Space Kids Rug from Nico & Yeye.

maisonette alpaca rocker

For Your Little Rocker: It’s a fact: Little kids love rocking toys.

Designed for ages 2 and up, this fuzzy friend has a warm smile and colorful blanket saddle. Honestly, we wish it came in adult sizes! $77, maisonette.com

panda kids mask

For Safety’s Sake: Given that the pandemic is still a huge concern in daily life, no family can have enough masks on hand for their comings and goings. While it may be a struggle to keep a toddler masked up, perhaps it can be made easier when a mask is super cute and designed just for little faces. Paper Cape’s Organic Embroidered Face Mask features an irresistible bear face and adjustable side straps. Note: This mask is recommended for children age 2 and up. $15, papercape.com
