Gift giving is so much fun. Kids make Christmas so magical. Their excitement makes all the holiday madness worth it. This guide is for (mostly boys) different ages up to about ten. Most of the items we have or someone we know has, and really enjoys it. If you are looking at ideas on making gift-giving easier in your own home, I like the rule of: Want, Need, Wear, Read.
- I love to give my kids something to read every year: We have discovered some of our favorite books and series this way.
- I love to give them something that is need: how about an alarm clock? Have they started earning money? How about a wallet to keep their money in. How about new sheets for their bed?
- Something to wear: As kids get older, their want list and their wear list may morph into the same list! When they are younger, their need and their wear list may be similar. Either way, a cute new church dress, some shoes, or an outfit is fun to open up wear through the holiday break and beyond.
- I obviously like to give my kids something that they want, but I don’t love the idea of mile-long wish lists. Together, we talk about what would be a good gift that they would get use out of, etc. Based on what they talk about and what they are currently “in to,” we get them something/s they will be really excited about.(We don’t want to clutter our home with a bunch of toys, so we always apply the one in/one out rule at Christmas time especially!)
These gaming systems were not easy to come by last year. Hot item! We love it because we can take on the go and use at home with the family. I linked a new game below they like to play!
A cute book full of science experiments you can do right at home with easy-to-find materials.
Darling helmet with bell and stickers to customize!
Are your boys as Pokemon obsessed as Finn and his friends?! If you can find Pokemon cards, snag them This game will be a fun addition to play too!
We are getting Finn this big boy bike, there are a couple different sizes, we got him the 18″ one.
These shoes are a favorite for the boys, goes will with jeans, jogger and shorts! Finn has had a couple different colors as he’s grown.
Cute gloves for the colder weather. Black gloves with fingerless gloves you can wear over top.
Kids can ask Alexa to play music, read a bedtime story, get help with their homework, and more. Stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, and others. I love the parent controls!
Cute little diffuser! The 5 oils that come with are perfect for younger kids- snifflease, sleepyize, geneyus, tummygize and Owie roller!
Tackle, pass, and score in battle soccer with the Mushroom Kingdom gang. A 5-on-5, soccer-like sport with no rules—do whatever it takes to win!
I mean, how cute is this holiday sweater. Finn will love it!
I’ve seen these for the last couple years and I think they have finally been improved enough to recommend! It has lots of good reviews. Basically wherever you point with the laser the mini car will follow…even up the walls!
Finn and my nephews are Goo Hit Zu fanatics. They will love these stretchy dinosaurs!
It’s cold here in Utah, and we’ve already gotten enough snow they could sled and build a snowman. I’ve been looking for a nice snow suit, this is cute too!
Finn got a scooter moped for his birthday and loved it! My nephew love dit so much he got one for his birthday. We recommend them! Finns was the smaller version and he is 6, My nephew is 9 and he has this bigger one. Both are perfect for their ages.
