Tooth fairy gift ideas and pillows.

Tooth Fairy Pillows and Boxes

Felt Tooth Fairy Pillow

This silly and adorable felt pillow has a big grin with a missing tooth. Parents can choose from an array of beautiful color options to personalize the smile, and you can even add a hair bow if you’d like. This plushy pillow is hand-cut and hand-sewn, and it includes both a front mouth and back pocket.

Embroidered Tooth Fairy Pillow

This charming plush pillow hangs from the door handle, making it easy on the Tooth Fairy and exciting for kiddos. Just pop teeth in the pocket on the back, hang it up, and tell the littles the sooner they go to sleep, the sooner they’ll wake up to a surprise. Any bedtime motivation we can get, we’ll take! (If you have a superhero fanatic in your house, there is an adorable Spiderman Tooth Fairy Pillow from the same seller!)

Customize these little handled pillows with your child’s name for an extra special touch. They’re made of soft, minky fabric and finished with a felt-appliqued tooth.

Tooth Fairy Jar

We love this little personalizable jar that can be used to exchange teeth for cash or treats. Add your child’s name to the front and choose to leave the back blank, or customize with one of two sweet phrases. We especially love the addition of a note your child can leave for the Tooth Fairy.

Tooth Fairy Certificates

Tooth Fairy Paper Certificate

We might not need 32 of these Tooth Fairy Certificates, but it’s always better to have too many than not enough, especially when you’re in a pinch and a tooth is lost right before bedtime. Each certificate comes complete with an official seal of approval from the Tooth Fairy; gold foil detailing; and checkboxes for “Healthy,” “Strong,” “Clean,” and “Bright,” which encourage littles to keep up with their daily brushing routine and dentist’s appointments.

It comes with a customized Tooth Fairy Pouch, a small plastic jar with a cork lid and white tooth decal, a first tooth certificate and ribbon (when rolled up, it will fit in the pouch), and Tooth Fairy tooth receipts.

Tooth Fairy Letter

Double down on the Tooth Fairy magic with a mini wax-sealed letter tied with cotton twine postal string and a tiny magnifying glass! This official Tooth Fairy mail will be such a fun treat for your toothless child. Your little one’s letter will be personalized with the date his or her tooth was collected and a tooth grading from tooth specialist, Master Floss, along with what the tooth was used for. This option will also teach your kids patience since they’ll have to wait by the mailbox to get their official mail from the Tooth Fairy.

Tooth Fairy Kit 

This cute Tooth Fairy kit offers the full Tooth Fairy experience! It includes one tooth pillow door hanger with a pocket for lost teeth and notes, tooth fairy stationary, tooth receipts, stickers, and a tooth journal.

Its official tooth receipts have space for the date, the amount awarded, and tooth quality, making it perfect for encouraging healthy brushing habits. The journal includes diagrams for children to color in which tooth they lost and space for them to write in the date, their age, the story of how they lost their tooth, and the reward they got for it. Dear Tooth Fairy letters and stickers make for a fun craft—kiddos can express their creativity and write a letter to the tooth fairy every time they lose a tooth.

Printable Letters and Certificates

Tiny Tooth Fairy Letter and Certificate

Any parent’s ears usually perk up at the words: “instant” and “printable.” This tiny Tooth Fairy letter and certificate is both! The text on the note is fully editable and can be updated for each lost tooth. The designs are hand-drawn or painted and full of whimsy. From the creator: “The stamp on the envelope is a watercolor painting of a fairy sitting and reading on a toadstool. The Fairy and fairy toadstool house on the letter are hand-drawn, too—no off-the-shelf digital images here!” Dreamy, indeed.
