Hi everyone! Today is all about a holiday gift guide for your sweet kiddos. I’m sharing some of my top picks for children this Christmas, and I am hoping you haven’t seen some of these already! I know there are some hot toys this season, but wanted to give you other ideas besides those!
My first-year-teaching friend and mentor of mine shared her little gift giving saying for her children that always stuck with me: “Something you want, something you need, and something to read.” I think this is a great way to get well-rounded gifts for your kiddos without over-doing it and keeping the true meaning of Christmas at the center… less about what’s under the tree and more about who we celebrate on Christmas!
I hope you enjoy my picks! The direct link for each item is in the caption. Simply click and shop!
Wooden Cookie Set (got this for C!)
Elf nail polish set (for big girl kids!)
Elf makeup brush set (also for big girl kids!)
Personalized Name Puzzle… C has this and loves it! Just starting to really figure it out on her own too!
Dockatot… for baby AND mama this Christmas! 🙂
Leap Frog Scout Puppy (C has this and loves it!!)
for your big kids! Nintendo Switch
Teepee! C looooves hers!
Osmo (for big kids… this thing is SO cool! When I was teaching I saw this demo’ed at one of our professional development day seminars, and even adults were highly engaged in this neat learning system that connects and mirrors on the iPad whatever you create in front of you! So much fun!)
It’s All About Jesus Bible Storybook (We read this every night! Has a fun interactive app that you can scan with a barcode to make the pages appear 3D! Very engaging for little ones!)
Skippyjon Jones (My students loved reading this book series! Definitely more of a read aloud for young readers, but great for independent readers too!)
Pete the Cat beginner reader set (comes with 5 books!)
A CLASSIC if you don’t have, should absolutely get this Christmas! It’s a wonderful all-winter-long story to pull out and read with your little ones. There are TONS of interactive activities you can find on Pinterest too that go along with this book. I did several different activities with students surrounding this book, and they always loved them!
That teaching friend/mentor of mine I mentioned earlier had a giant mitten, along with the animals in the stories cut out for each children to take, and they were able to go into the mitten and act out the book while the adult reads it. She let me borrow this to do it with my students, and it was so fun! If you’re good at sewing (or know someone who is!) this is such a fun idea to add along with the book as a gift!
and last, but not least one from Nordstrom:
Hunter Boots (Just because they’re too stinking cute!)
I hope you’ve found some new ideas for your last few gifts you might be on the hunt for, for your little (or big!) kiddos! Have a fabulous day friends!
