Holiday Gifts for Kids

My Christmas Gift Guide for Kids is Here!

And it is HUGE!

I didn’t intend for this guide to get so in-depth, but after polling my girls and all of their friends ages 4-7 on what they were wishing for this year, I knew I had to include all of their amazing requests (I did however leave out the standard request for a pet puppy, kitty and baby dinosaur from the list;).

I feel like kids nowadays have it made (yes, I realize how old that makes me sound), but seriously I wish I could have had this cool of toys when I was growing up. I may have even bought some of these toys for my girls just so I can play with them myself… while they are sleeping and I am eating all of the cookies I want;)

I grouped all of the most-wanted gifts into 8 different categories – STEMspacemythical creatures (unicorns, mermaids, fairies), activecraftsdinosaursgames for game night and my personal favorite stocking stuffers.

All the categories are perfect for kids ages 4-7 (and older) and are great for both boys and girls!

Don’t be afraid to take a look at all of the guides and then send your favorites right over to the grandparents, at least that’s my plan;)
