Keepsakes for Kids

Downtown Coral Gables is a family-friendly destination, everyday you’ll catch families sharing ice cream on Aragon or walking down Miracle Mile hand-in-hand. Our retail stores specialize in providing unique and distinct gifts for children to keep forever.

Shop for your family or the special children in your life in Downtown Coral Gables and find something with meaning made of quality materials: 

If you have a budding fashionista in your house, you know the kinds, she wants to dress as a princes for school, wear your finest gowns and paint her nails daily, Macanoco & Co. has the elegant and charming style that your Meghan Markle in the making will love. Treat her to a set of their enamel gold bangles with pink color flowers or multi-color hearts, or maybe a blend of each. Consider purchasing a new one to commemorate special occasions like the first day of school every year or milestones like losing a tooth. Sounds like the tooth fairy just got a bit more fashion-forward.

Kids grow fast and outgrow gifts even faster, that’s why Nini & Loli’s selection of 3D art made especially for children’s rooms is so special. It’s a gift that your little one will be happy to have in their room for at least the first decade of their lives, after that, we all know it gets tricky. The beautiful cardboard animals like a giraffe, elephant and rhino make for a chic minimalist addition that feels both youthful and stylish. Buy one or pair all three together for a statement. For a softer look, the colorful felt animal heads are available in everything from a sparkly unicorn to a sweet pink flamingo or serious white tiger.

Parents with a busy social life usually have kids with an equally packed calendar of events. Next time your kids have an event coming up that requires a more formal dress code, even for the youngest attendees, YoYo Children’s Boutique has a beautiful selection of quality clothing for children. Your children, from newborn through about a size 10, will look spiffy in delicate knitted sweaters, bloomers in lux fabrics, formal pinstripe button down shirts, sweet boleros and onesies all handmade in Spain.

Gifts picked up on travels feel extra special, but if a quick trip around the world to find something special for a toddler in your life isn’t in your future, consider shopping at the Gift Shop by Books & Books at the Coral Gables Museum.

This beautiful shop feels like you’ve been transported into the home of the best traveled person you know. There are gifts at all price points from something small and sweet to a more meaningful and artful piece and the majority of their products are sourced from international makers.

Whether it’s a way to say welcome to the world or a big birthday, give a future heirloom to as your next gift. There’s something so special about something with history and a piece of fine jewelry received as a small child will be kept sacred forever. At the various high-end jewelry stores in Coral Gables, they’re happy to work with you to create something custom and personalized from engraving a bracelet or ring to designing a piece based on birthstone or a meaningful symbol. Gables Gems has a lovely selection of pendants, rings, pins, charms and more jewelry made especially for children.
