As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.
Favorite teachers deserve a little something special this time of year. It could be a gift for their desk or classroom that adds a bit of flair, or even just a relaxing item they can enjoy at home. Planners, calendars and journals are always useful, as are cute and funny gifts that make them giggle. Teachers' gifts are a thoughtful way to show your appreciation for someone — including a coach, babysitter, day care staff member or nanny — who goes out of their way to care for and brighten your child's day. Check out some of top choices for teacher Christmas gifts from Amazon, Anthropologie, Uncommon Goods and more.

Pregnancy can come with a lot of aches and pains — especially in the final months when the weight of your precious baby belly may become hard for your body to support.

Your exhausted body will appreciate any one of these supportive and comfortable maternity bands, plus some can be worn all pregnancy long and may even double as postpartum belts.
