Montessori Gift Guide for Toddlers & Preschoolers


I love shopping for my daughter.  I thought I loved shopping for myself, and then I become mother and it was a whole different game.  I could buy all of these cute things and not feel guilty about spending the money on myself!

Now that reality has set in I realize that I can’t always go overboard.  So I like to put my money into the best gifts for Mia.  Toys that are educational and fun.  Toys that help her learn and grow. Plus, I love and prefer those Montessori inspired.

So I wanted to share with you some of the hottest, top rated educational gifts for toddlers this year. And these are on my list.  Take a peek!
