Best Big Christmas Gift for a Toddler

It’s hard to believe that W’s second Christmas is right around the corner … it still feels like yesterday that we were wrapping our tiny baby up and bringing him home from the hospital! While I sometimes miss my itsy bitsy baby, it’s so fun to see him learn and grow before our eyes. I wanted to get our toddling toddler something extra special this Christmas that he’d be able to enjoy now and as he grows up and we couldn’t love his new teepee from Tip Top Teepee Shop any more – it’s perfect! In fact, after we set it up just to check it out we had a hard time prying W away! He loved playing peekaboo with us through the two windows and reading his books inside the cozy space.

We chose the canvas kids teepee (c/o) with two add-on windows with roll-up shades and we were pleased with both how quickly the teepee shipped to us and the quality – it’s made from heavy cotton home decor fabric (with no flame retardants or chemical treatments), heavy duty twill tape and thick wooden poles. The other great thing about this teepee is that there is no assembly required! Once it was out of the box, we simply spread the poles and it was ready to go!

I love that we can decorate the teepee depending on the season. I’m already thinking about spring ideas and possibly making a personalized pole flag.


If you’re thinking about a teepee for your little one, I’d highly recommend the Tip Top Teepee Shop – they offer a great selection of colors and patterns so there’s something for every style! And I can’t imagine the excitement on a little one’s face seeing this set up by the tree on Christmas morning! We’re so looking forward to playing with our little guy over the holidays with his new teepee!
