Every year when we start making our Christmas shopping lists there are certain toy and gift ideas for children that keep popping up. And that’s exactly what some children want. But some of us don’t want to give our children what everyone else does. We’re looking for something special for the children in our lives that they definitely won’t get anywhere else. A great place to look for such clever gifts for kids this year: Nordstrom’s toy store.
There are more than 1,200 toys and gifts for kids in the shop, so we’ve narrowed down to 25 of our favorites below. There’s so much more to be coveted (and it’s perfectly normal for an adult to own this corgi toy, isn’t it?) So be sure to visit Nordstrom for the rest.

From before they can turn around until they drive away, kids rely on adults to give them the tools to get around. And by tool we often mean toys like this one beautiful horse swing for babies 10 months old and up to 66 pounds. A Rainbow push toy from Skip Hop is ideal for the first steps, and once you have mastered the motor skills, you can start the impeller. An iinflatable soccer goal or a Mini golf set work for both indoor and outdoor competitions. And for older kids and adults who really want to test their goal, Tic Tac Go becomes a fun and silly challenge.
