Hopefully you can find some gift ideas for everyone on your list here. We’ve got the best ideas for kids to play with, wear, and read. We’ve got stocking stuffers, books and toys for babies/toddlers. And we have some favorite gifts for adults!
Something Fun To Do
This version is much better than the original – in my opinion. It doesn’t end up stuck on our room, or in a neighbor’s yard. The kids (and adults) love it just as much!
The air fort is a hot gift item last year. It only takes seconds to build and the kids will play in it for hours!
Awesome gift for all ages! I could never have anticipated what a huge hit these would be with my kids ranging from ages 2 – 7. They have played endless games of “floor is lava”. They add it to obstacle courses in the backyard and basement. It’s also great for teaching colors to toddlers.
I’m counting on this being the best gift ever this year!
This was our big family gift last year. We set up this ninja course between two trees in the backyard, but also plan to attach some of the obstacles to eyehooks on our basement ceiling.
In the days of “social distancing”, these were an even more amazing gift.
Something to Play as a Family… (or just the kids)
Something to Wear
It gets dark so early now that my kids are often still outside playing when I can no longer easily see them. I snagged this glow beanie for my littlest so I can easily spot her. I also got some glow gloves for all my kids.
• Affordable Puffer • Flexible Sunglasses • Marbled PJs • Animal Print PJs • Newborn Outfit •

Something to Read
A little older… ages 3+
Iggy Peck Architect (and other great books in this series)
Beginner Readers: Here are some kid-favorite books that are part of a larger series. If you were ever into Baby-Sitters Club, they make those in graphic novels for early readers now!
Something They Need or Something That Will Teach
Working to teach my kids the value of money and how to be responsible with it. Hoping this piggy bank helps!
Babies & Toddler
You know how much fun it is to pop bubble wrap? This toy is like colorful and reusable bubble wrap for toddlers! Easily fits in the diaper bag, great sensory activity, kids of all ages love it (all of mine, ranging 1-6 love this!)
These will forever make my list of best gifts for a baby! Once a baby is sitting up (6+ months), these are a perfect gift. They will stimulate multiple senses while also being an aesthetically pleasing and non-toxic toy!
This was our favorite first birthday gift for our daughter! Recently I noticed the llama was out of stock, but this brand makes their wooden toddler activity centers in multiple animals
Something to read for the littlest ones (babies & toddlers)…
