Another addition to my 2015 Gift Guide today – picks for kids! This was pulled together in-part by my younger sisters, who are super helpful at knowing what kids want, because they’re kids themselves! I think it’s a lot harder to shop for kids now than ever before, especially with so many comprehensive game systems taking over, in lieu of the traditional games that were around when iiiiiii was a kid. Here are some gift ideas for any kids you may be shopping for this year!
A winner of the 2014 Toy of the Year Award, Goldieblox (starting at $11) has a series of products available for young girls with an interest in math and science. This is a wonderful pick for a gift that’s both educational and fun!
Bean bag chairs are a great gift for kids. The Yogibo Midi ($199) is perfect for gaming, reading, watching TV, and/or napping. Plus, it’s supposed to be especially helpful for kids with sensory processing disorders.
For both boys and girls, a pair of walkie talkies ($28) is making its way onto a lot of lists! While this is great for things like camping trips or chatting with friends a few blocks over, it’s also a wonderful way to spark creativity and imagination with friends.
All About Me Book
Going back to the old-fashioned ways of childhood, an All About Me book ($7) is a fun gift for kids who enjoy writing or journaling. It’s a productive way to spend time too, and can even provide a little bit of education on family members, with questions about mom, dad, grandmas and grandpas.
Technology is huge today, so any tech gift will be appreciated by the kiddies. An iPad Mini ($240) is an awesome family gift, and really, the #1 tech gift for kids. No matter what the age, the possibilities are endless with one of these, including plenty of entertainment for hours on end!
