Sometimes people assume that because we like to focus on giving non-toy gifts in our house that we are anti-toy but that isn’t the case at all. I love finding creative gift ideas for kids and I really love the fun of surprising a little one with a much awaited toy (frankly, I can’t wait to see Scarlette’s face when she sees her new dollhouse this year.)
Here are a few gift ideas that our favorites among my littlest friends. Which I know because I have recently discovered that teaching Sunday School around the holidays is kind of a great way to learn what the hottest toys are this year. Last week the boys in my class drew pictures of the baby Jesus as Minecraft characters. It was kind of epic and definitely made my morning merry and bright.
And for fun, I partnered with The Land of Nod to give away one of our favorite unique gifts for kids- an indoor play tent that is sure to be a total hit! Keep reading to learn how to enter to win! (some links are affiliates)

We have several items from The Land of Nod and really love them for their quality. The intergalatic space station, which we
stole won at a holiday party that we attended with The Land of Nod last Christmas, is hands down the most popular toy in our house when we have playdates. (Plus from now to December first, use code SAVE15 for 15% off + free shipping!)
The Land of Nod was generous in letting me choose which item I wanted to give away to one of y’all and I chose this indoor tent because I thought it would make a sweet little reading nook or hideaway and be a bit different than a traditional toy!
