Kids are definitely the most fun to shop for (you get to imagine their delighted reactions), but it still can be a chore to wade through all of the kid STUFF to find a truly awesome gift. I’ve waded and waded and managed to come up with several options that I know my kids would love (if only they read my blog).
Hopefully, the kidlets you must buy for in your life will too.
Because what kid wouldn’t love to walk around lit up like a Christmas tree??
My boys would love this Perplexus maze ball. Only two left in stock of this one, but there are some options (for much cheaper) on Warehouse Deals.
If you’ve gotta have a night light, it might as well be shaped like a cat, yes? Of course, yes.
It’s a game! It’s math! It’s both, and it would make a great gift for a kid or two in your life!
I don’t know about yours, but my girls play with dolls. Like a lot. They don’t really care, but I like dolls of the cute variety. MOST of the ones I favor tend to be a bit on the pricey side, but this sweet little fox doll is pretty cute without breaking the bank.
I know this is kind of random, but of every dress up outfit we’ve ever bought or been given, our dino suit–with its swingy tail and horny head–has been a favorite among every single one of my children. This one is similar to the one we have and would hopefully provide its recipient with as much joy as it has my kids.
I’ve just about bought one of these teepees for my kids about 100 times over the last 5 years, but I keep telling myself, “Oh, you could make that…” See how well that’s been working for me?
Don’t be like me. Instead, buy this stripey version so your kids don’t periodically remind you about that heap of scraps you have in your closet that “you said you were going to make a teepee with that one time.” #truestory
This cute crocheted ballerina doll would be a favorite with my girls. Yours too?
This is my absolute favorite kids’ Bible. The illustrations are incredible, and the text stays very true to the details of the Biblical accounts it includes (which are MUCH more in depth than the usual “Noah/Abraham/Jonah” highlights) while still being easily understood by children.
My mom gave Simon one of these for his birthday, and we’ve all gotten a kick out of it. The price point + reviews on this one can’t be beat!
Bubbles. Every little kid loves them. Every mom very quickly gets tired (and lightheaded) from blowing them. Enter this ingenious device.
Here’s another version for suuuuuuper cheap! Not as good of reviews, but for the price, maybe worth the gamble?
The reviews on this little cash register are mixed (main complaint: the drawer sticks), but for the current PRICE ???!!! I think I might chance it for Theo. It beeps/scans food with actual prices, adds them, has a microphone, makes noise when you insert the included debit card, and comes with money, coins, and food. Whuuuuttt?
The girls and I saw the Wonder movie for Della’s birthday and really liked it, and I’ve heard great things about the book as well. I think it may be our next family read aloud.
Breakfast for dinner is a huge hit at our house. Imagine how much more so that would be if our waffles were shaped like MICKEY’S HEAD??
Got any mermaid lovers in your house? Satisfy all of their “under the sea” yearnings while keeping their tootsies toasty with this fun mermaid tale blanket.
Foxes AND hedge hogs?? Are they trying to KILL us with cuteness??
I snagged some of these for Honor so that his blankies wouldn’t match Theo’s (territorial, much?), and I love the black and white and how soft they turn out after the wash.
Simon and Della both got gifted paint by sticker books for their birthdays, and they both love them. Chances are, your kids will too!
You better believe books are high on my lists of best gifts for kids, and this “atlas” is a super fun option (we have it, and it’s great!) with awesome graphics.
We love these adorable Hello, World board books at our house. Theo will read them with me all day long, and the twins love them too. If you scroll down to “similar items,” you’ll find the rest of the books listed.
Speaking of books we love, all of my kids are entertained by this one. AS AM I. Seriously. My favorite right now.
I just bought this boxed set after both of my boys DEVOURED the first one in the series. (Definitely a good vs. evil situation, but not explicitly Christian).
Anything by Donita K Paul is also a huge hit with my boys who love all things dragon and warriors. (The books do have Christian themes).
And this oldie but goodie for Della.
If you don’t mind your little ending up looking like a juvenile member of a motorcycle gang, you might consider this nail sticker + tattoo kit. My girls would FLIP for this!
And again with the llamas! But isn’t he cute??
Surely I can be allowed one more if it’s in hat form???
These cutie-pie bandanas would make a great gift for a new mama who wants a stylish alternative to traditional bibs.
It’s a toy AND a clock. I bought my boys one of these each years ago when they needed an alarm clock, and we still have/enjoy them.
Phew! Typing up all of these gift guides has worn. me. OUT. But I’m coming back with ONE MORE (Lord willing) for the true procrastinators among you! Hope you’re already done, but just in case not, stay tuned.Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):
