Holiday 2011 Gift Guide: Kids

Holiday 2011 Gift Guide: Kids

Here are some of gifts we’ve got our eyes on for little ones. Shhhh…. don’t tell our kids!

How cute is this Gap cupcake bag? Judith Lieber makes one out of crystals for ladies on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and charges thousands for it. This one is so much better. It’s the perfect little clutch for your girl to take to parties. Or to schlep treasures around the house (as it will be used in our home). $24.95 gap.ca

The perfect toy appliances for your budding sous chef. I love the scale of them – satisfyingly big enough for kitchen/restaurant games but small enough to tuck away. All make blending, mixing sounds but you could always lose the batteries if that’s not appealing. Mixer, $36, Blender $36, Coffee maker $39 at Pottery Barn Kids.

The perfect kid for your brainy niece or nephew. Kids learn how to power a digital clock with vegetable power! Potato Clock by Green Scene toys at Lavish & Lime $17.00

I have my doubts about home made sushi – I think it’s one of those things that should be left to the experts, you know? I’d break my own rule for this set. Love the pop=y colours and all the little details. Check out that wasabi! Melissa & Doug Sushi Set $25.95 at Indigo.ca

I love the vintage-y vibe of these tea sets. Even more than that, I love that they’re made of tin so they won’t smash into teeny, tiny, un-findable pieces. Pottery Barn Kids tea set $24 at potterybarnkids.com
