But with the end of summer comes a dazzling fall with cozy drinks, fire pits in the backyard, and so many holidays to look forward to. And for this long weekend, we’ve rounded up the best deals for families. If you’re anything like me, you may be thinking ahead to the holidays. Stock up and save some of these steals in a closet somewhere until you hear the jingle of bells!

Having been around a lot of kids over the years, I can safely say that an ottoman is the furniture item for little ones. They love climbing and perching on a seat that’s just the right size for them, and it makes for a nice makeshift table for pretend games. These come in six colors to match every theme.

We love the flamingo-pink color and the soft, cozy feel. This is a beautiful, high-style solution for a kids’ space that also offers lots of comfort for tiny hands and feet.

Storage is super important for a kids’ room — but storage that grows with them? Well, that’s a deal we want to jump on. This simple 3-drawer chest comes in three finishes and is tip-resistant, making it a safe pick for little ones.

Kid Made Modern: 25% off sitewide not including clearance + up to 50% off clearance

We are always eager for fun new art solutions, like the ones from Kid Made Modern.

Discount applied at checkout.

This is already added to my cart!

I don’t know how they do it, but Melissa & Doug always strikes that perfect balance between timeless products and fun, engaging new ideas for kids’ play. If I’m honest, I’ll say that nearly half the products in our playroom are Melissa & Doug. And with these picks, I’m not sure that ratio is going down any time soon!

Does your family have a restaurant bag? We just started one and we fill it with markers, arts and crafts supplies our daughter can use at the table, and small books for her to flip through.
