“Montessori…” bask in that beautiful word and all it encompasses. Now, attach the word “home” to it. What does it spell? Montessori Home. What 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: 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.
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 Home.

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.
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.
“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.
