Gifts for the Little Tikes + Budding Teenagers in Your Life

Share:

I'm officially old and no longer know what's cool, so my nieces and nephew helped me out with an "oh-so-special-must-have" list to make sure all the little, and not so little, ones in your life have the gifts their hearts desire most.


As it turns out the cool LA aunt is actually not that cool when it comes to knowing the season’s must-have items for the Christmas lists of post-millennials and their adorably chubby toddler understudies. So, desperate times call for desperate measures—I called in reinforcements.

My nieces and nephew (via my dutiful sister) came to the rescue, helping to curate a gift guide for tikes and teenagers alike. Full of gifts that the little ones in your life will actually want, you can now rest assured, shop with a few clicks and gift with confidence (and ease!) this year!
