Gift Guide for Kids
Can you believe that we are getting closer and closer to Christmas? Thanksgiving isn’t until the end of the month which shortens the buying season. I thought it would be a great time to share some of my favorite gift ideas for kids from both small shops and big-box stores. Whether its items that are for a higher budget or minimal I included a variety.
1. | Wool Ball Necklace*
Is anyone else tired of candy and cheapy stocking stuffers? I love to put small quality items in my girls’ stockings. The wool ball necklaces designed by Hooray Everyday make the perfect stocking stuffer for your little ones she has simple styles as well as snowmen or gingerbread styles too! They will make a fun little accent after the holiday is over too!
2. | Pick A Pine Tree
I found this book from the holiday extraordinaire, Amy Hawthorne. She recommends this book and the illustrations are so sweet as well as the storyline. Pick A Pine Tree tells the sweet story of a family going to a Christmas tree lot to pick a Christmas tree. What better than starting the tradition of adding a new book every holiday?
3. | Baseball Hat*
What better than a baseball cap with a simple initial? While it’s cold most place these hats by Rey To Z make a great decorative piece in your little one’s room until the weather warms up!
4. | Giant Fringed Cracker*
This giant cracker makes a super fun gift for a stocking or even a secret Santa gift. You will be able to keep the kiddos or adults busy Christmas morning while breakfast is being prepared.
5. | Cuddle and Kind Doll
I know I know my kids have a TON of stuffed animals, but I added these Cuddle and Kind dolls on their Christmas list. Not only are these dolls completely handmade, but they are also for a good cause. For every doll that is sold 10 meals are provided to poverty-stricken children around the world!
6. | You are Magic Crewneck*
If you havent noticed crewneck pullovers with and without graphics have become VERY trendy, and this time of year is no exception. This You Are Magic pullover design is very festive while also being gender-neutral. It definitely doesn’t hurt that the fabric is incredibly soft.
7. | Instsapix Camera
If your kids are anything like mine they love to get ahold of my phone or camera and take pictures! So why not surprise them with a camera while also ging them the ability to have access to a physical photo that they have for a keepsake or to hand on a memory board in their room!
8. | Swankaroo Backpack*
These adorable backpacks are adorable and oh so perfect for your little one to carry all the things on their mini-adventures.
9. | Bar Clips
Yes! bar clips are back. I remember when these were in style when U was a little girl and was so excited to see them back and even more fun than ever before.
10. | Chuckle and Roar Games
Looking for a fun new variety of games for the kiddos? Target has released a new brand of games for kids called Chuckle and Roar and they are adorable while also being affordable gift ideas!
11. | Blankets and Lovies
Iviebaby is a sweet little brand of lovies and blankets with modern prints and designs that are both high quality and cozy. I have used her fabric designs for gifts that i have created for friends and family in the past.
12. | Ikea Play Kitchen
Looking for a play kitchen this year? I don’t know if you’re aware but Pinterest is known for all of the different Ikea hacks for this and they’re Adorable! This is one of the things I am getting Whitney and I have some BIG plans to do a total overhaul of it!
13. | Rock It Twist It by LeapFrog
My oldest that is turning 7 found the RockIt Twist It toy in Target and LOVED it. It has the look of a handheld gaming system with little ones in mind and is totally budget conscious.
14. | Customized Name Crayons*
I use the holidays as an excuse to refill the girls’ craft bins and what a fun added touch than personalized crayons. They make a great gift in the stocking!
