The best gifts for kids are the ones that let them express their creativity and individuality. Whether you're looking for a birthday present or just want to surprise your favorite tyke on Christmas morning, we've got some great ideas.
To make it easier on you, we've rounded up some of our favorite gift ideas for kids of all ages. We've got suggestions for toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged kids — even some great ideas for teens and tweens!
Here are some of our favorite picks:
â Books And Reading Materials
Books are great gifts because they encourage reading, which is a skill that will serve them well throughout life. All children should have books in their library, but if you already have some on hand, consider buying new ones to add to the collection.
â LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster Building Set
This LEGO Friends building set includes everything you need to build a roller coaster that's perfect for any amusement park or fairground scene — complete with stalls and concession stands! It's easy to build and comes with an instruction booklet and numbered bags to help you get started quickly. The finished model measures over 4 inches high by 12 inches wide by 3 inches deep when assembled, so this would be great for display in any room in your home or office (or anywhere else!)
â Sidewalk Chalk
Kids love chalk because it's colorful and can be used on sidewalks or pavement in their yards or even inside if you'd like (though this may not last long). Chalk is also easy to clean up afterward!
â Sesame Street Let's Rock Elmo
Elmo has been around since 1984 and remains one of the most popular characters on Sesame Street today. This interactive Elmo toy lets kids sing along to his songs, play games, and even dance along! He'll make any kid smile from ear to ear!
â A Tablet
Tablets are great for kids because they're portable and easy to use. They can play games, read books and watch videos anywhere they go. The downside is that tablets can be expensive, so make sure you know what kind of tablet your child wants before buying one!
â Little Tikes Cozy Coupe
This classic car is a great choice for toddlers who love cars or trucks. It comes with a parent handle, so you can push your child around in it, but it also has a small pedal that can be used once they're old enough to reach it. Children can push themselves and ride without help until they get tired out! The Cozy Coupe is available in several different colors and designs, so you'll have no trouble finding one that matches your child's tastes.
â Anki Cozmo
This little robot is like having your pet. The Anki Cozmo is a robot that can play games with you, dance, tell jokes, and more! Not only does this little guy have an app where you can download games for him to play, but he has a personality as well! He reacts differently depending on what kind of mood he's in at the time.
â VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2
The smartwatch is so popular these days, and this one from VTech is perfect for any kid! It comes with tons of apps geared toward kids, but there are also some games! It comes with over 30 games preloaded onto it, so there aren't any downloads necessary!
â Wood Building Blocks Set
This set of 100 blocks is made from solid wood, much sturdier than plastic versions. The blocks come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that kids can create different structures and designs. This is a great way for children to use their imaginations while also learning how to follow instructions and build things with precision and care.
We hope that this list of gift ideas has given you some good options to consider as you start thinking about gifts you might want to get for your children or gifts you might want to give to other children. No matter what age the individual is, it's important to provide them with toys and activities that will keep their minds active, their bodies healthy, and most importantly, make their lives fun!
