gift guide for the older kids! i even made an effort to include some tween gifts, but obv i’m not an expert so i did my best! enjoyyyyy 🙂
i love these gel crayons — and they come in really nice colors
such a cute little skateboard and comes in good colorways
love this lamp/night light
arlo loves his fort kit so much
the cutest little set for the aspiring chef
and a chain stitched apron for them too!? so cute.
very cute tool bench that isn’t an eyesore!
ok so i’ve never actually played this, but i love the box design lol and they have a bunch of extensions or spin offs so it must be fun! (for 8+)
but also for the karaoke enthusiast, a much more low key and inexpensive alternative.
a very cute bead kit for all their bracelet making needs!
these are so cute!
we love how-to drawing books.
all the craft and new hobby kits!
we got this set for arlo!
if they’re old enough for a laptop, this case is so cute and fun.
we’ve gotten two of these (halloween and xmas) and arlo just loves them. they are the perfect activity for quiet time or when he wakes up early and i want to get him this one next!
these are the perfect gifts — a subscription box with STEM based activities for whatever age your child is. you can also just buy the crates a la carte. arlo has always loved every box we’ve ever done and we requested a subscription from his grandparents this year!
we have the regular sized yoto, but honestly if i was buying one now i’d prefer the mini. way easier for travel and it still has the same controls (i can’t speak to the sound quality but i assume it’s fine!) it also has this cute color option for the travel jacket!
a fun light up board (that i think arlo would love)
these are so fun to add some sparkle to their room.
word on the street is kids love these things — this is a cute one!
these would also make a fun stocking stuffer
you can’t go wrong with craft kits! with this one they can make their own stamped metal jewelry.
and a good thing to make them read whenever they’re complaining about being bored lol
crocs are the best — these ones are the perfect neutral color, but of course they come in tons of color options
and then get some cute charms to go with them! these flowers are sweet $9
and so are these smiley ones $9
a balance beam would be so fun and this one looks good too
or if you want something more small scale, this balance board is great and you can use it for all kinds of play
maybe put some cash in it to get them started too haha
another idea for the aspiring chef — a very cute book with lots of recipes for kids to follow
a really nice-looking over the door hoop that actually looks like it will last!
a smart speaker designed for kids to play music, read, and even get help with their homework!!
the smaller, lighter version of the switch — perfect size for kids, comes in fun colors and the games are cute
for the bug-loving kids — this kit includes a voucher for five baby caterpillars, a net, and supplies for creating a butterfly habitat. so cute!
everything 90s is back. also comes with little accessories!
temporary tattoo markers! these colors are really pretty and it comes with stencils you can use too
the cutest little paint by number sets
i hear big kids love boba?!
and is white too 🙂
both boys in my house want this new set.
i’ve been told kids love these right now too!
such a cute pottery kit
or, a beginner’s pottery wheel kit!
the prettiest little karaoke machine
a kit for them to write and illustrate their own book! love this.
and you could get them some fun film too.
a marble run / magnatile set — arlo would love.
so they can add some sparkle to their hair
this is so cool.
very pretty colors and super versatile pieces
i mean, what kid wouldn’t want these
for the lucky kids that have some outdoor space and very good parents
my best friend just got this dollhouse and im obsessed, its SO CUTE!
this tablet comes in such a cute case
we got this one for arlo too. the whole lego dreamzzz line is so fun.
a remote control car that can climb up walls and the ceiling.
we’re in the future
everything our generation is too fun
