Kids grow out of their clothes so quickly. Toys that were cool last year often get shoved to the bottom of the toy box. But there are some things that will stick around for a long time. This week, Gilt.com is all about gifts that last.
You can’t get more timeless than Thomas & Friends. The TV show first aired 28 years ago, and we have toys and clothes featuring the famous tank engine. Jacadi’s kids’ clothes will be on sale starting Thursday— they’re classically cute, and can be passed down to younger siblings. And even when little ones go off to college, you’ll find teddy bears from Steiff and Gund on their bedroom shelves.
Moms will cherish handbags from Rebecca Minkoff and Yves Saint Laurent. Or they can get glam for a winter getaway with exclusive pieces from Donna Karan New York. Dads can suit up in a style they’ll have forever from Mr Brown by Duckie Brown, and accessorize with a tried-and-true piece from the Vintage Watches sale. Know someone who needs a little luxury in their life? Give the gift of five-star hotel style with Frette bedding, or wow them with cashmere slippers and throws.
We’ve made it easy for you to give gifts that will last forever.

From life-size cut-outs of the famous Cat in the Hat to cupcakes iced in blue (recipe below!), this party was a blast for the whole crew.

Holiday card photo shoots. School parties. Merry meals galore. ‘Tis the season for dress-up! ”Finding an outfit for your kids can be hard, especially if you have a little one with big opinions,” says our senior buyer (and mom) Melissa. We chose these twirl-worthy ensembles because they’re sweet enough to charm the relatives, but have playful details that will win over mini glamour girls (think tulle overlays, bubble hems, and flower appliques). Get ready for a picture-perfect holiday season.
