The Ultimate Gift Guide for the Montessori Home


Montessori…” bask in that beautiful word and all it encompasses. Now, attach the word “home” to it. What does it spell? Montessori HomeWhat a concept! What a wonderful concept!

We are an eclectic homeschool that incorporate The Montessori Method in nearly every subject we learn. Why? Simply because of what Montessori stands for many wonderful things.

Some of these are: supporting child dignity, fostering independence, inviting peace, encouraging spontaneous education, teaching care for one’s self and the environment, finding beauty in everything, just to name a few.

Please remember to visit our resources hub for Montessori Curriculum 3-6 activities and lessons!


In this post, you will see a thorough list of Montessori materials that can be given as gifts for those who seek to have Montessori homes. Not only will your children love the materials, but gifting them something educational, useful and beautiful is the best gift of all. My wish is for you to find in this post many great ideas and inspiration for your Montessori at Home.

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”      ~ Maria Montessori

Babies and toddlers are sponges when it comes to absorbing everything that is around them. Their brains are developing at fascinating speeds and it is up to us to help that process be successful by exposing them to materials that make them think. Here are some gifts to foster that.

Object Permanence Box


Infant Coin Box 

 Four mini cylinder blocks 

“Introducing children to a variety of language activities is necessary to establish a permanent interest in literacy.”     ~Dale Gausman
Language is foundational for all forms of communication. Let’s set our children up for success with some engaging and superior activities. Here are some wonderful ideas:


  Sand Tray 

 Phonetic Reading Blocks

Lower- and Upper-case Sandpaper Letters with Boxes 

“We cannot create observers by saying ‘observe,’ but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses.” ~ Maria Montessori
Break out those magnifying glasses and get out there! Explore this amazing world by opening up children’s eyes to what is around them. The geography activities below are great to get started!

Globe – World Parts 

World Map, Flags and Stand

The World Encyclopedia of Flags

“If education is always to be conceived along the same antiquated lines of a mere transmission of knowledge, there is little to be hoped from it in the bettering of man’s future.”     ~ Maria Montessori
Let’s be creative! Let’s make Math fun and interesting again! These are a few activities that have been fun at our home:

 Sandpaper Numbers with Box 

 Spindle Box With 45 Spindles 

Small Numerical Rods


“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.”     ~ Maria Montessori

Sensorial materials are so wonderful in the sole fact that they inspire and encourage independence by providing the ability to self-check their work. There is no need for external correction because the materials themselves  have tactile as well as visual clues when the material is out of order.

Pink Tower

 Knobless Cylinders (Set of 4) 



I like how the author of this eBook puts it, 
“The goals of this section are the development and enhancement of four basic concepts: 1. Control of Movement, 2. Care of Person, 3. Care of the Environment, 4. Grace and Courtesy.”
Learning independence is paramount for the children’s proper development and dignity. These activities will help them feel successful and active members of their society.

Slotted Bolt Board 


Basic Children’s Pouring Kit


“We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.”     ~ Maria Montessori

Learning about the world around them is fascinating to children. They learn so much more through observation and experimentation so they can draw evidence and conclusions.

Animal X-Rays

Botany Puzzle Cabinet with 3 Puzzles 

You have seen a very complete list of materials that can be used daily to learn while having fun. Below, you will see more resources. I have included some books that I recommend to get started using Montessori at home. Follow us on Pinterest so you can also draw Montessori inspiration and ideas.
As an eclectic homeschooler myself, I have also included some Montessori-inspired materials as well as a complementary Montessori list to the materials I showcased above. They will help embrace both Montessori at home and freedom at the same time.
I hope you find this gift guide helpful and that it will give you inspiration on how to incorporate Montessori at home, even if it isn’t implemented 100% of the time. The Montessori Method is so amazing and I highly recommend learning more about it. Feel free to message me with questions.
