Nasiba Adilova

As a mother of two boys, I cannot tell you how frustrated I get when my kids grow out of something within weeks or lose interest in a “one trick pony” toy. One of the main reasons I started The Tot was so that I could find the items that wouldn’t end up in a landfill or be discarded into the depths of a closet or toy chest. I wanted things that could be passed on to siblings and then even to family and friends. With so many items needed for sleeping, eating, playing, learning and traveling, I’ve also focused on finding gear that can grow with my kids and offer multiple uses.

The same goes for my clothing – when shopping I’m always conscious of picking pieces that I know will stand the test of time because fashion truly does come back around. I also know that as a pregnant/ breast-feeding/ postpartum mother, you require clothes that allow access and movement, while still allowing you to feel stylish, on trend and totally comfortable, which is why I’m now extra conscious of picking clothes that can be worn throughout any stage of life.

One of the first genius products I found for The Tot is the Life in Play ToteSavvy. This organizational caddy slips into any of your existing tote bags and instantly makes it a diaper bag. If you’re trying to save money or simply love swapping out your bags – this is a fantastic option that makes #momlife even better.

As a working mother who is constantly on the go, I love toys and games that are easy to store and travel with. Sunnylife, one of my favorite Australian brands, are absolute masters at this! Just in time for Christmas – their new Lucite backgammon game will be an absolute delight to play one lazy afternoon!

From Sue Gragg diamond jewelry that will be coveted and worn forever and always to a 3-in-1 scooter that keep kids moving and grooving, I’ve listed 40 minimalist gift ideas for babies, toddlers, kids and parents that won’t take up too much space, don’t cost the earth (or your health) and will last a lifetime.
