shiloh's favorite things / toddler gift ideas


I cannot believe my baby girl turned TWO years old this week. I have been so emotional about it, not gonna lie! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done an update on Shiloh’s favorite things so I figured her birthday week was the perfect time to share! Everything I’m sharing with you guys today from Walmart is either toys she has been loving recently, or other fun gift ideas for toddlers around her age!


You can click or tap on any product below to shop!


Most of the toys are pretty self explanatory but I’ll go into detail about why we love these in our household (and which ones have been helpful for us at restaurants) below!



I remember when Shiloh was a tiny newborn and I always felt sad because I so wanted her to stay a tiny baby forever. I LOVED the newborn stage and just couldn’t imagine how things could get any better. I can honestly say though I absolutely love this toddler stage with her so much. It definitely has different challenges than the newborn stage did (hello tantrums haha) but hearing her talk, seeing her quirky personality, watching her make friends…it is the COOLEST thing in the world.


We did almost all of our birthday shopping for Shiloh at Walmart because they truly have EVERYTHING you need at such a wide variety of price ranges. I love that they carry all of our favorite toy brands, like Melissa & Doug, Leapfrog etc at prices that can’t be beat! I also love how shopping-friendly their site is, and especially helpful if you are shopping for toys! I love that you can shop by age, and then category to help give you great ideas to gift your little.


It’s been so fun seeing some of your DM’s on instagram, who have babies around Shiloh’s age. A lot of you guys followed me when I was pregnant and then had your baby around the same time I had Shiloh so it’s been really special to have you guys follow along on this journey, share your recs, tips, etc! If you have any other toddler-must-haves in your household, comment below and let us know!
