Trendy toys are fun, but if you’re looking for a baby or toddler gift that’s a little more unique this year, Etsy is the place to find it. From beautiful, heirloom quality wooden toys that will last for generations to handmade games, puzzles and so much more, we’re helping you find the best one-of-kind gifts this holiday season.

Blocks always make a great gift, and this unique wood and silicone set puts a modern twist on a timeless classic. We love them for encouraging open-ended play and building all sorts of developmental skills.

Bannor Toys Silicone and Wood Building Blocks Set

$53.99

Every kid needs crayons, but how many kids out there have crayons that spell out their name? Made from melted and mixed crayons that are re-hardened into block letters, these alphabet rainbow crayons can create a wide variety of colors on the page with just a few swipes.

Personalized Alphabet Rainbow Crayons

$6.98

The perfect starter set if you or whoever you’re gifting to is interested in Montessori, this collection of six wooden toys is just right for little ones who are beginning to explore the world around them. Just keep in mind that some of the toys include small parts, so always make sure everything stays intact and baby only plays with the toys while supervised.

HeirLoom Kids USA Montessori Baby Set of 6 Toys

$69.00

Form meets function in this wood and silicone teether that’s as beautiful as it is useful. Little ones will love gnawing on the textured beads, and the wooden rings are easy to grab and hold. And with baby’s name displayed in the beads, it makes for a truly unique gift that will become a treasured keepsake.

Personalized Wood + Silicone Teether

$20.00

The ideal pet for brand-new walkers, this colorful wooden puppy bounces up and down when walked. (The ears even swing back and forth!) It’s an heirloom toy that can be passed down for generations of play.

Papa Don’s Wooden Toys Puppy Pull Toy

$35.00

We love this simple, curved woooden board for how versatile it is. A balance board for toddlers learning coordination, a bridge for toy cars or any other open-ended play kiddo can think of, this is one gift that will stay sturdy through all kinds of play (and will work perfectly for Montessori-focused families)!

Bunny Hopkins Wobble Board

$62.10+

Tiny chefs might make a big mess, but at least they’ll be safe with this dull-edged, kid-friendly wooden cutting tool. It’s perfectly sized for toddler hands so your little one can start their culinary education with the right tools for them.

Kid-Friendly Knife

$14.99

Gift giving may be fairly new to modern Hanukkah traditions, but what better time to give your little one the gift of learning about Jewish holidays and traditions than on one of the first nights of Hanukkah? This book is made of soft cloth that won’t rip like a paper book, and the simple activities inside mean it doubles as a busy book to keep restless hands and minds occupied.

Jewish Holiday Book by Pockets of Learning

$37.95

One of the best parts of Christmas trees is decorating them, and we don’t blame any toddler who wants to keep taking ornaments down just so they can put them up again. This miniature Christmas tree (made entirely of felt and Velcro, thankfully!) lets little ones do just that…over and over and over again. This is one gift that easily becomes part of your regular holiday decor for years.

Felt Christmas Tree Kit

$17.99

What better way for kiddo to learn to spell their name than with a puzzle? And with several different color palettes to choose—from bright primary to subtle neutrals or pastels—it also makes a beautiful decor piece.

Personalized Name Puzzle

$9.59+

This classic captain’s chest brings something special to toy storage. Handmade from solid wood and finished with a stain of your choice plus your little one’s name (and available in three sizes), it’s perfect for storing your child’s things all the way through their teenage years and beyond.

Keep in mind: This shop currently has a seven- to eight-week lead time, so there’s a good chance your toy chest won’t arrive until after the holidays. But you can still make it work as a belated gift (especially to house all the new toys kiddo just got!) or keep it in mind for their birthday or the next holiday season.

Perryhill Rustics Wooden Toy Chest

$34.99

If your baby was born shortly before the holidays, this little elephant can help celebrate both their birth and their first holiday season. It’s made of cuddly soft fabric, and the big, adorable ears are filled in with baby’s name and all their birth stats like birth date, time, weight and length.

Birth Announcement Elephant

$26.60

Among all the personalized gifts available on Etsy, you may be surprised to find a book you can personalize. Not only is this bedtime story full of sweet and gentle words to send listeners right off to dreamland, it’s also got your little one as the main character!

Goodnight Little You Personalized Book

$34.99
