  • For: Young Daughter

    The snow is falling and the air is crisp, so the idea of donning a pair of sunglasses whenever you're outdoors might seem silly, but it's essential that you and your family wear sunglasses year-round to protect your eyes from UV rays. Wrap up this sweet pair of Original Babiators Sunglasses, which features flexible frames and shatter-resistant lenses, and leave them under the tree for your baby girl. Older siblings can enjoy Babiators, too, as they come in two sizes and 10 colors, ($20; Babiators.com)

  • For: Young Son

    Your superhero-obsessed son may put himself in a prolonged timeout following the holiday festivities, just so that he can play with his new Hasbro Superhero Mashers.

(They start at $10 per hero, but two or more are required for part swapping; HasbroToyShop.com)

  • For: Dad

    Ever the prankster, Dad will get a kick out of the Uncommon Goods Unzippered Glass Jar, which resembles an open plastic snack bag. Before he finishes unwrapping the clever gift, he may even start scheming on how to trick his coworkers upon returning to work. ($16.50; UncommonGoods.com)

  • For: Young Daughter

    When your young daughter requires stationary for jotting down wishlists, writing thank you notes and responding to her pen pal's letters, only the finest stationary will do. Erin Condren's whimsical line of paper products, which includes the Notebook Notepad in Multi Sequins, is beautiful from top to bottom. The two 25-sheet notepads, which measure 8.5-inches long by 6-inches wide, feature a header of festive-colored sequins and a personalized footer. ($20; ErinCondren.com)

  • For: Young Son

    No gift recipient is more deserving of a Sharon Montrose photographic print than your young son, whom you'd describe as small, but mighty. This 7-inch by 9-inch image, which fits in most 8-inch by 10-inch frames, features a caramel-colored baby alpaca, who is just one of almost two-dozen real live baby animals captured on film as part of the Little Darling collection. Hang this fine art in your son's bedroom as part of a gallery wall, and enjoy its beauty as your little darling grows. ($25 for unframed print; TheAnimalPrintShop.com)
