Nasiba Adilova’s Tot 10 Holiday Gifts
When it comes to gift-giving, The Tot Founder and Mama of Three, Nasiba Adilova, takes the job very seriously. As a lover of things that are stylish, sustainable, non-toxic, educational and versatile, she always opts for products that stand the test of time and tick all the right boxes.
My family teases me, but it’s true: I pride myself on being an exceptional gift-giver.
Nothing brings me more joy than to see a child’s face light up when they receive a book that can take them to a magical far away land, a science kit that makes them wonder about the world or a toy that encourages them to dash outside for a session of some serious active play.
Since I’m all too aware of what may be lurking in a lot of mainstream toys (lead, PVC, BPA… to name a few toxic chemicals) The Tot team and I search really hard to find products that pass The Tot Test. They need to be safe for little mouths, durable enough to be passed down from sibling to sibling and educational.
For babies and kids, I look for gifts like:
- DIY gardening kit
- Baby walker
- Personalized tea set
- Craft supplies
- Play Teepee
- Kitchen and food toys
- Role playing toys
Equally passionate about gifting my friends, colleagues and family members, I also meticulously shop for the types of gifts that I know will tick all the right boxes: clean, useful, sentimental and designed to last.
For adults, I love gifting:
- Eye masks
- Family matching robes
