Let’s go ahead and address the obvious: The holidays are upon us, my friend. And if you clicked this link, chances are you are scrambling for last minute gifts for your tiny tot.

Here’s the other good news: Scary Mommy has got you covered! Not only can you finish shopping in your pajamas, but we’ve made it one step easier. Presenting our Last Minute Gift Guide for Toddlers. Just scroll, click, buy–and Ho Ho Ho! Your Nice List status is safe for another year.
This is a staple for toddlerhood. If you haven’t had a scooty-butt car crashing around your house that plays ear worm musical soundtracks, have you even lived? Buy this. The smiles alone will make it worthwhile.
I can’t even with how awesome this chair is. Colorful, functional, and extra storage? It’s perfect for art projects, snack time, and watching Disney Jr. while mom sprawls out on the couch (or vacuums up crushed cereal, whatever).
Sons and daughters alike will fall in love with these dinosaur rescue bots. I mean, it’s three toys in one, y’all! A dinosaur, a bot, and an age-appropriate puzzle. Tell me that’s not a bargain.
Who doesn’t love bubbles? Rain or shine, this handy dandy bubble blower is here to bring the party to you. And I dunno if he’s a bandit or if eye masks are just the rage with monsters these days, but who cares! This funky purple guy stole my heart and your toddler will love him, too.
Why wait until Halloween to be a superhero? Parents, grab up this adorable Owelette costume, and your little PJ Mask will be on the way—into the night to save the day!
Toddlers love acting out adult activities. And bonus: it doubles as training! I mean, if your little one learns how to dust and mop, let’s just say this gift will have been well worth the investment.
Every kid needs a freaking kitchen. And when that kitchen is super mod with stainless appliances and a fancy tile backsplash–well, mama might just jump in for playtime dinner. (Seriously–how cute is this kitchen?)
Plastic food, baby dolls, blankets–your toddler’s options are limitless. But one thing is for sure, they will adore having control of the shopping cart for once.
Not only is this an educational toy, but it’s a fantastic pre-naptime activity. Nothing says “wind down” like staring at pictures of animals on the ceiling in a dark room.
Never mind the whole velcro stomach childbirth thing, this toy is a classic. Didn’t we all want a puppy surprise? Well, now you can live vicariously through your toddler, because Puppy Surprise is back! And who knows how many babies she’ll have! *Oprah voice* “You get a puppy! You get a puppy! EVERYBODY GETS A PUPPY!”
Alright—that brings our list to an end. And now that you’ve wrapped up your shopping, grab a glass of vino, and put your hair up into a messy bun–because it’s time to wrap those presents!
