This gift guide is for all your favorite kiddos and the people that still consider you their kiddo. Your nieces and nephews. Your best friend’s little one. Your mom, dad, grandparent and mentor. The empty-nester. The aunt who’s more like a mom, and the uncle who treats you like one of his own. Let’s get to it!
Gifts for Young(er)
1| A handsome marble run ($50) made of natural rubber wood, that’ll keep the kids happy without assaulting your eyes.
2| Every child should have their own name on a puzzle ($25), right? This one allows for a range of customized colors, and it would make a great first-time parent gift.
3| A board book ($11) that teaches little ones to stand up for what they believe in.
4| Please don’t spoil it for her, but Lucy may just be getting this adorable dinosaur stuffy ($40) under the tree this year. We can almost hear her delighted squeals of ‘Dinosaaaaaaur’ now! (She’s obsessed with all things dino.)
5| The genius that invented these triangular crayons ($4) deserves a medal. The shape ensures that they won’t end up on a sticky restaurant floor next time you’re out to dinner with your favorite little person.
6| …And speaking of coloring, this huge coloring poster of America ($30) would make the perfect companion to those clever crayons!
7| This bead bracelet kit ($18) will thrill crafty little ones as they make their own custom-lettered jewelry with their friends.
8| A sky chair ($35) is the perfect hanging cocoon for reading, naps or play! It’s available in about a dozen colors, too.
9| Tiny drawing tables ($115) are just about the cutest thing of all time. This one packs in tons of storage in the desk and chairs and even has a reversible chalkboard/whiteboard top.
10| This bike ramp ($55) is significantly higer-quality than the scrap wood death traps we built with our friends when we were little. Safety first!
11| This shockproof, rechargable digital camera ($25) is the perfect gift for the budding photographer in your life!
12| Tickets or a membership to your local children’s museum or science center make a great gift for the whole family. The little ones won’t even realize they’re learning about S.T.E.M.
Gifts for Old(er)
1| This waffle maker ($199) for happy mornings. Well, that and coffee.
2| This handsome bocce set ($80) for their backyard, or it can easily be toted along on their next adventure!
3| A soft and beautiful faux fur throw ($50 – $100) for their sofa, because they’re always cold.
4| Did you know that a pair of these slippers ($79) is sold every 7 seconds in the month of December? 4 million pairs have been sold over the last 5 years. Sounds like your favorite person deserves the best slippers on the planet!
5| This modern hummingbird feeder ($24), because somewhere between moving out of the house and having kids of your own, they’ve picked up an obsession with birds.
6| This easy-on-the-eyes coffee maker ($329) that makes the best cup of joe. A little spendy for sure, but it’s built to last forever and is available in 29 colors!
7| This family cookbook ($30) so you can finally keep the heirloom recipes in one place and pass them down for generations to come.
8| A monogrammed marble and copper serving board ($40) is classic and handsome. Just like your dear old dad.
9|This firewood tote ($25) for their hearth, because nothing beats the smell of a wood burning fireplace.
10| These dog breed socks ($12), because sometimes you wonder if they love their pup more than their actual grandchildren. (Kidding?)
11| This chapter-based scrapbook album ($119), full of the memories you’ve created together.
