As Santa Claus is coming to town, it is the time for perfect behavior, impeccable manners, and a myriad of "please" and "thank you."

1. Mr. Mouse Stroller Blanket by Ethan Allen x Disney ($39): In order to celebrate Mickey's birthday, the masterminds at Ethan Allen decided to partner with Disney to create a very special collection in time for the holidays. This beautiful stroller blanket in navy blue is so cozy you'll want one for yourself. Nontoxic, 100% cotton knit and machine washable, this is the ideal tagalong to cover your little'uns in style.

2. Star Wars Lightsaber Toothbrush by Firefly ($4.99): Is brushing your kid's teeth a never-ending drama? Now the Force can be with you! This super fun toothbrush lights for 60 seconds to help kids learn the proper amount of time needed to brush. Featuring sounds from the popular Star Wars films, it is perfect to transform the bedtime routines into playtime. Available in Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, and Rey.

3. Personalized book by Lost My Name (from $29.99): This is one of the most personalized gifts I could ever think of: A book dedicated to finding the letters that compose the name of a child. Completely unique and with gorgeous illustrations, every book features a different adventure. Aside from becoming a staple in your storytime routine, these books are a keepsake that your children will surely keep even when they become moody teenagers. Available in Spanish and English.

4. Pirate Magnetic Play Set by Stephen Joseph ($12.90): I'm totally in love with the educational toys created by Stephen Joseph, but this magnetic play set is undeniably my favorite. Ideal for boys and girls with a vivid imagination, the 40+ magnetic play pieces will help them recreate a pirate ship and the many adventures they can live on board. Extremely easy to fold and ideal to carry with you on car trips, the magnetic pieces are so strong that they won't fall offeven if they decide to create a character with multiple layers.

5. Reggie Junior Bath Sponge by The Body Shop ($6): Aside from making bathtime more fun, this adorable sponge featuring a monkey can give your kids the gift of natural preservation. Fun and colorful, it is perfect to start a conversation with little kids about why it is important to protect nature and how they can contribute to preserving species. Reggie Junior is the face of The Body Shop's campaign to build a "bio-bridge", or in other words a corridor that connects wildlife species in damaged landscapes.

6. Kimono Top by Maison de Mini ($55): Maison de Mini is a fashionable and eco-friendly kids clothing brand. Momo is a comfortable, unisex kimono top handmade in the USA with hemp, organic cotton, and yam dried jersey. Made to be loose and comfortable, it is ideal for kids that love playing outdoors and moving nonstop. Pair it up with the kimono pants or some dark leggings for a striking effect that doesn't restrict your child's movements.

7. Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Lil' Snoopy at Big Lots ($10):
The perfect first puppy for a child, Lil' Snoopy turns his head, barks, moves his ears and walks like a real dog. This friend requires no batteries; just pulling the puppy along by its leash will set it in motion. Compact and terribly cute, it is designed for kids aged from 1 to 3 years.

8. What do you do with an idea? published by Compendium ($16.95): Kobi Yamada signs this wonderful book that narrates the story of a wonderful idea and the kid that helped it become a reality in this world. This award-winning inspiring story is the perfect gift for any kid with natural curiosity. What do you do with an idea? teaches children how to give their seemingly odd, strange, or too big projects a healthy space to grow. I'm pretty sure this book will inspire a new generation of self-starters!
