Finding perfect gifts for kids is one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season but it can be challenging. There are so many options and choices. And it can be hard to know what gifts they’ll actually use after the holidays have come and gone. This Gifts for Kids gift guide is loaded with awesome gifts kids really want for Christmas and gifts they will use over and over again.
Gifts for Kids
All year long, I look forward to the upcoming Christmas season with my kids. It’s a time where we decorate our Christmas tree, make ornaments, watch Christmas movies, sip cocoa and eat lots of Christmas goodies. Once the kids go to bed, I get out my Christmas shopping lists and start searching for the perfect presents for them to unwrap on Christmas morning. Watching the kids hurry to the tree to sort and unwrap presents is one of my favorites. I’ve rounded up our favorite Gifts for Kids this holiday season so you can enjoy time with those you love and more time focusing on the real reason for the season. This gift guide has perfect gift ideas for your kids.
Our absolute favorite gift is the Magna-Tiles 100-Piece Clear Colors Set. These Magna-Tiles are the most used toy in our home. No other gift has been used as long or as often. They’re compact enough, we even travel with them to grandparents, vacations and hotels.
Gifts for Boys
Boys are wired with a sense of adventure and love to explore the world around them. Hands down, our favorite gift for boys this Christmas season are the USA Toyz Walkie Talkies for Kids. These walkie talkies are easy to use and perfect for boys (and girls too) of all ages. They will ignite your child’s imagination and will be something he will use all year long. Our son got these walkie talkies as a gift last year, and he hasn’t stopped using them since.
Gifts for Girls
Finding the perfect gift for girls can be tricky. They all have so many different interest and hobbies. But there is one toy all girls love to play with at our house and its the KidKraft Annabelle Dollhouse. This dollhouse comes with the cutest set of furniture so her dollhouse will be ready to play with from the start. All she needs to do is add her favorite dolls and the fun begins!
Kids will love these Toyz Walkie Talkies for playing with their siblings and friends. They’re easy to use and durable for their rough and tough play! Mom and Dad will even enjoy using these.
Girls will love using their imagination playing with this Polly Pocket Hidden in Plain Sight Beach Vibes Backpack. It is a great gift she can bring with her for on-the-go adventures and fun.
Perfect for kids imaginative play, the Melissa & Doug Let’s Play House Set is a great gift for kids of all ages and stages!
The KidKraft Uptown Kitchen is a wonderful gift to give the kids this year. They’ll spend hours cooking, baking and using their imaginations in this kitchen set!
If my kids had to pick a favorite toy in our house, Magna-Tiles would be at the top of their list. These toys are award-winning magnetic building tiles that your kids will enjoy all year long!
These are my kids FAVORITE books. We were gifted a Poke-A-Dot Book when my oldest child was young and it’s been loved so much we had to get another one! The kids love to pop the dots and it is the only book that will keep them entertained and HAPPY for hours! You need this one!
If your girl loves dolls, the KidKraft Annabelle Dollhouse is a great gift for her. An added bonus, the house comes with all the furniture you see here!
If you’re looking for a game and activity the whole family will enjoy, this is the one for you. Marble Genius Marble Run Super Set fosters creativity, teamwork and is simply FUN!

Kids love learning how things work. The VTECH Drill and Learn Toolbox will help them with their curiosity in a fun and safe way!
Each kid on your gift list would a PlasmaCar this year! You might even want one for yourself (it’s safe up to 220 lbs)! This car can twist, turn and wiggle it’s way around both inside and outside.
A gift guide for kids wouldn’t be complete without LEGO building sets! LEGOs are my kids favorite thing to build with by themselves and when they get together with friends. Every year, LEGOs make the top of their Christmas and Birthday lists. Our favorites this Christmas season are LEGO Friends Mia’s Tree House, LEGO Friends Heartlake City Resort, LEGO City Police Station, and the LEGO City Heavy Cargo Transport. LEGO sets make awesome gifts for boys and girls, of all ages!
Little boys and girls on your Christmas List will love the LEGO DUPLO Large Playground Brick Box. This set allows little ones to build, create and use their imagination!
This 68 piece World Jigsaw Puzzle is great for kids! They learn all about the world while they sit and build this bright and bold puzzle.

Kids love to splash and play in water! The Step2 Rain Showers Splash Pond Water Table Playset will be the perfect addition to your backyard.
