Of course, you can get any costume based on what they love, but costumes for pretend play will always make a great gift. The last few months Lucy is all about the dress up and all things princess and tutu, it’s sure been so fun!

16 // Art Easel

A roll of paper, chalk, paint, jugs and brushes, everything a little one needs to get creative with their art skills. One side is white board magnetic, and the other side is chalkboard which I love because it gives them different options.
