Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids


Here you'll find some Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids that are sure to be a hit! Take the ideas from this list and use them as inspiration to create your own one-of-a-kind gift!



  • A small Christmas tree for their bedroom that they can decorate in any way they choose. You can include a gift certificate to a craft or general store for them to buy decorations with.

  • A bathtub gift basket--there are so many cool tub items out there...bath bubbles, bath crayons, bathtub toys, tablets that color the water or make it fizzy, yummy smelling soaps and shampoos, etc. Include some or all of these items in a gift basket along with a new towel (with or without their name embroidered on it) and washcloth.

  • Splash of Summer Bucket--what better way to dream about the warm days of summer! Fill a large sand bucket with a beach towel, sunglasses, swim shoes, flip flops, sunscreen, goggles, sand toys, a swimsuit...whatever summer items you come across that are appropriate. The best part about this gift is that you can pick all of these items up just before the holidays on clearance racks in the Fall!

  • For the crafty kid, fill a large container that has a lid with craft items--paper, pencils, pens, glue, markers, stencils, stickers, a ruler, scissors, foam shapes, tape, pipe cleaners, coloring books--anything in the craft aisle. Use stickers or make a sign on the side that makes it their own (ie. Mia's Creative Kit or Ethan's Art Supplies).

  • Coupon Book--make a homemade coupon book for your little one with things like "good for one free room cleaning", "stay up one hour past bedtime", "skip a meal you don't like and choose something different to eat", or "a whole day alone with Mom or Dad". Use your imagination--really think about what your child loves--some of the ideas may seem trivial to you, but kids will get a kick out of this book!
