Being a child at Christmas time is just so much fun. I remember many Christmas mornings tearing through the wrapping on my Christmas gifts as a toddler just to see what lay beneath the wrapping paper. Whatever the shape or size of the Christmas toy I had been gifted, as long as at least one present was on my wanted list of toddler gifts for Christmas that year, or simply just took my fancy, then I was as happy as a pig in mud.
Christmas mornings would start with a quick trip to the kitchen to check whether the big man in the red suit had eaten his cookies and milk, then out to the lawn to check for magical reindeer droppings. With excitement at the helm, I’d race my sibling tree-side to see what Christmas gifts had been dropped by the Santa express for us. The gifted life of a kid under five at Christmas was a magical time of the year.
Because we’re just a bunch of big kids at heart, our team at Not in Shops have come up with an awesome list of Christmas gifts for toddlers. The Christmas gifts we have sourced specifically are perfect for all kids under five, and what’s best, our list of toddlers’ Christmas gifts feature personalised names!
Can you imagine how excited your toddler will be when they know Santa’s elves must have gone to some dedicated effort for their Christmas gift this year. Nothing pumps a child’s ego more than knowing he or she was specifically on Santa’s watch list for good kids.
These jigsaw puzzles are full of colour and are easy to use, which make the perfect option for a Christmas gift for kids under five. Our collection of jigsaw puzzles helps children with cognitive areas like improving their fine motor skills, learning colours, as well as recognising their own name.
Hand-picked from the best cushion designers that Australia has to offer, our personalised cushions for kids make great Christmas gifts. With the option to make use out of these beauties for rest or for play, toddlers will adore these soft and snug cushions branded with their own name. The gold and silver foil print options make excellent choices at Christmas time too. These cushions offer bespoke designs that are not found in shops and are great gift options all year round.
Available as an alphabet board book design as well as a number design, these board books are ideal Christmas gifts for toddlers. A perfect introduction to learning the alphabet, numbers and counting, these board books feature a personalised name on the front cover as well as throughout the book. Toddlers and children will love to engage with these books from Santa with their names thoughtfully displayed. Fun and education rolled into one – now that’s a clever Christmas gift idea for kids under five!
Growing up, we always tend to favour one animal above the other, and this changes as often as the ol’ drop of the hat. Although not personalised with your child’s name, these beautifully hand-crafted animal puzzles provide personalisation by whatever flavour of the month it seems to be. Available in a wide selection of animal shapes, including hippos, swans, horses, lions, kangaroos, koalas and many more, you’ll have plenty of choice for your toddler gift this Christmas. Made right here in Australia from the artistic town of Mullumbimby, these wooden puzzles are finished with care and detail to ensure that they are safe and ready for the toddler treatment.

Don’t fret, we haven’t just included one, we have a whole array of soft toys that make perfect Christmas gifts for kids under five! And, we must be doing something right with our personalised cubbie toys, as we’ve sold over 20,000 adorable teddy bears since their inclusion into our shop just a few short years ago.
