There are SO many things to choose from when shopping for kids, so I sifted through some of the noise and picked 5 of my favorite gift ideas for across a few different age groups for both boys and girls.
Melissa & Doug Deluxe Magic Set
Just about every kid loves putting shows on at home for the family, so this Deluxe Magic Set ($26) is a fun gift for those who love to perform and show off their talents of magic!
Getting everyone to put their phones, tablets, etc. away at the table can sometimes be a struggle, so the family edition of TableTopics ($25) is a great way to keep the whole family entertained! There are a lot of fun topics and you’ll learn a lot of things about each other that you might not have known before!
For kids with smartphones, PopSockets ($10) are a fun and affordable gift! They stick to the back of your phone and help enhance the grip and positioning of your phone. And if you’re shopping for someone who’s prone to drop their phone a lot, this is a must have!
Highlights for Children Magazine
If you’re looking for something to keep brains going, you can’t go wrong with a Highlights Magazine subscription ($30 for 12 issues)! These were my favorite growing up and my sisters loved them as well! Plus, it’s like the gift that keeps on giving because a new issue comes every month so it lasts throughout the year!
If you’re looking for a “big kahuna” type of gift, the Nintendo Switch ($300) is great for video game lovers and/or the whole family! In addition to single and multi-player games at home, you can also pop the system out and take a small portable version of it to go, so it’s almost like a 2-in-1 gift!
