2021 Gift Guide – Gifts for Kids

So I’m going to come clean – I love to spoil my kids on Christmas. The same goes for my nieces and nephews. I love to get them presentsI love nothing more then a tree with lots of presents under it. I love seeing their eyes light up when they catch a glimpse of all the boxes. I figure there’s a small window of years where we can really soak up that Christmas magic so I like to take full advantage. That’s why this gift guide for Kids is twice as long as all the other gift guides I made this year….I just can’t help it! It’s so fun spoiling them. Now if only I loved wrapping as much as I loved giving…it’s not my favorite BUT it’s worth it 🙂

Do you have little ones on your list? Babies, toddlers, kiddos – sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, godchildren, etc? Whoever it is, I’ve pulled together a list of gifts that a range of ages will enjoy.  So make that list and check it twice, because it’s time to let the holiday spoiling begin!

  1. Books to Bed PJ and Book Set ($55) – I gasped when I saw these – WHAT a cute gift idea. They have so many favorite books too – Goodnight Construction Site, The Night Before Christmas, Dear Girl, Dragons Love Tacos, Uni the Unicorn, Princesses Wear Pants, Guess How Much I Love You, and MORE
  2. Click Close Crayola Markers ($11) – I got these for L as part of a larger art set – I’m pairing them with notepads and other supplies. But the fact that I won’t have to deal with another lost cap every again feels like more of a gift for ME than her….
  3. Usborn A Look Inside Books ($18.95 each) – I love Usborn books. The pages are filled with colorful scenes and flaps, each packed with even more detail to entertain readers. We have the Trains book and I can’t wait to gift H some more from the series (I’ve got Things That Go, Food, and Construction Sites in my cart!).
  4. Children’s Encyclopedia ($15.99) – I got this for the twins last Christmas and it’s been a wonderful addition to our library. It’s a great resource to help answer their endless questions. We use it together to look things up and more and more I find them thumbing through the pages on their own soaking up the beautiful images.
  5. Submarine Spray Bath Toy ($29.95) – Hands down the best $30 I’ve spent all year. I got this for Baby H but turns out all three kids love it so much. It provides endless bath entertainment and it’s also useful! I use it to rinse the shampoo out of their heads all the time.
  6. GAP Teddy Bear Sweater ($39.95) – This sweater is absolutely precious – and many people agree because it’s selling fast!
  7. Big Measuring Tape ($12.99) – My kids are obsessed with measuring things – block towers, themselves, etc. And as a result they’re always stealing my tape measure. This one is a HIT. Plus it reminds me of the Fisher Price Terry Tape I had as a kid – did anyone else?!
  8. Photicular Books (starting at $14.99) – These books are amazing! Photicular technology uses sliding lenses and video imagery which makes the images in this book look like movies. I know my kids are going to love them.
  9. Jeweled Gloves ($37) – I just think these are so fun. What glam gal wouldn’t want to wear these out in the cold?!
  1. Drone Home ($23.90) – This game is SO. MUCH. FUN. My sister got it for the twins for their birthday and OMG. They play it all. the. time. – sometimes multiple times a day. Guaranteed giggles and shrieks of delight. Candy Lab Toy Vans
  2. Candy Lab Toy Vans ($18 each) – These Candy Lab Toy Vans are small in size (think like a Hot Wheels Car), but they are bright and super cute. I love the Donut Truck, Taco Van, and the Hot Dog Van. I hope we’ll be playing food truck festival on Christmas morning.
  3. Gund Soft Princess Playset ($24) – This sweet playset is great for a baby’s first Christmas. The horse neighs and the princess crinkles which is a nice touch and it all fits in a cute carrying case. Sweet and simple.
  4. Cubic Fun Car Track ($39) This is a favorite toy in our house. All three kids love it – it’s simple enough for a toddler and entertaining enough for Kindergarteners. I especially like that it is battery free.
  5. Tonies Box & Stories ($15-$99) – I cannot say enough good things about the Tonie Box. This is a fantastic gift for kids 3+. The twins use theirs almost everyday. The systems start at $99 but the stories are sold separately for about $15 – which make them great gift options for the future or for stocking stuffers.
  6. Hannah Anderson Rainbow Fleece Bomber Jacket ($60) – I just thought this jacket was the bee’s knees. HOW fun is the rainbow collar? Hopefully fun enough to avoid any refusals to wear a jacket?! Fingers crossed.
  7. Wooden Busy Board (starting at $88) – Baby H loves his busy board – he got one this fall. It’s colorful and full of activities. In fact, both he AND my 5 year olds won’t leave it alone. I like that this one has lots of “real life” things toddlers are obsessed with – light switches, plugs, locks, etc – not just toys. There’s even an option for a board with a remote control!
  8. Selfie Clothing Co Coloring PJs ($38) – LOTS of littles on my list are getting these this year! Color your own PJs?! I just wish they came in my size. Lots of different themes available – unicorn, space, holiday, etc – and there’s different styles too – PJs, sweatshirt, and cape.
  9. Lift The Flap Shirts ($28-$38) – H loves these lift-the-flap shirts from Boden – they’re a great conversation starter!
