Hipster Kidz: Holiday Gifts Galore

I'm in a HOLIDAZE! Hanukkah is in full swing and Xmas is in the air. Even though our presence should be present enough, we tend to spoil the little ones in December. so I put together a hit list of my top picks from everyone's favorite new hipster childrens boutique, Apple Village. Follow along for a rundown of goodies you can easily order for babies to big kids. Get ready because these gifts are cool.

Colorful, kooky and all out adorable was the name of the game when it came to choosing my fave items for teany tinys this holiday season... 

First up, colorful, non-toxic, silicone TEETHERS from Little Standout ($15). Love the vibrant hues and irreverent shapes these come in. Collegien SOCK-SHOES ($34) are next. With sturdy rubber bottoms are perfect for waddlers. They come from France so that's why they are so chic. These shoes will last my 20-month old all winter long. Toddlers will love Tree Hopper's HIPSTER ABC's ($39). This gift is made in America from birch wood and uses non-toxic water based ink. Love this company and love this concept for the those learning their letters.

Want more? How about the most adorable cozy KNITWEAR from Doodle Pants ($24)? Apple Village sells a million and one designs, these are my 3 favorites for the holidays. Perfect for Xmas morning. And finally, for those who love to make a mess, check out the HAPPY MAT from ezpz ($20-$25). This brand is getting a lot of buzz lately. It's a dishwasher safe, silicone food mat that suctions right onto the table. The Happy Mat comes in different sizes and of course Apple Village has them in an array of fun colors.

For the Big Kids...

Not sure what to surprise you elementary schooler with this holiday season? It's Apple Village to the rescue! I chose 4 stand out items for creative and curious kids...

Let's start with DIY PROJECT KITS from Kiwi Crate ($10-$29). These kitchen table projects are perfect for a snowy day at home. Choose from dozens of designs. Next up, the item I wish I had for myself -- a POM POM HAT by Maniere ($29-$34)! Soft wool/acryllic blend with rabbit fur pouf...Maniere hats come in toddler to big kid sizes. What about mama-size? I need that pink one, stat.

Rounding out my gift list are Tattly TEMPORARY TATTOOS ($16.50 for a set), a great stocking stuffer for artsy/edgy boys and girls. And for those smarty pants kiddos we all know and love, Apple Village has a library of books to choose from. I decided to feature a few RETRO-INSPIRED BOOKS from Chronicle ($17-$23) with inventive illustrations. Modern-day encyclopedias if you will. I'm loving these books for endless hours questions, finally answered.

So go on...head over to AV and tell them Allegra sent you...or call (because they ship nationwide). Happy Shopping and Happy Holidays!
