2014 Em for Marvelous Gift Guide: Littles

5 December 2014

John and I now have one niece and one nephew, so I’m always on the lookout for cute and useful goodies for the under-five set. Even though most of these picks will have to wait a few years for W + T, I’ll be ready once their manual dexterity catches up!


A. Fox sleeping bag ($99) | I mean, come on. I could have put almost anything from The Land of Nod in this guide, but this foxy bag is one of my favorites.
B. Cotton dress ($40) | I love these sweet little dresses with their Liberty print collars!
C. Wooden sailboat ($16) | Fun for bath or the park
D. Ropes & Anchors dress ($38) | Perfect for the petite sailor
E. Sherpa bear mittens ($13) | Mittens! With claws! Also, this is the cutest little jacket.
F. Lilly Pulitzer bedding ($50-$188) | These sheets would be a fun but grown-up option for a big girl room!
G. Watercolor crib bedding (varies) | Really pretty watercolor crib bedding in bright colors
H. Set of three plush unicorns ($29) | I was ob-sessed with playing ponies when I was younger, so these pastel equines are right up my alley.
I. Lulie Wallace lunchbox ($22) | Perfect for storing treasures. Or a lunch.
J. Neon slingshot ($34) | While the listing expressly says “for adults,” I think this would be fun for a responsible little, too :)
K. Puffin in Bloom series ($16 each) | Like I’ve said, I think these Rifle classics are a requirement for every little girl’s bookshelf. Every big girl’s, too :)
L. Baby deer print ($25) | It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite from Sharon’s Babies series, but the deer might win. I would smile every time I looked at her!

P.S. Last year’s gift guide for littles!

So cute! But now I want the Lulie Wallace lunchbox myself… and I don’t even leave the house for lunch!

That cotton dress with the touch of Liberty is adorable! I am partial to the Puffin books too because of the cover art, as Anna is one of my favorite artists :)
