For Kids

Kids are always the most fun to buy presents for. It’s almost impossible to pass up those sweet newborn gifts—from plush personalized stuffed animals to tiny patterned booties. Then, when the kids get a little older, there’s nothing quite like the look of joy on their faces when they see that shiny new toy. Sure, they all love building blocks and modeling clay, but a mermaid blanket, a robot nightlight, or a cereal bowl that doubles as a basketball hoop is so much more fun. But, because we know it’s so much harder to come up with great gift ideas for kids once they reach those tween years, we did the hard work for you. We searched high and low for gifts that are sure to delight even the toughest to please. And, even though it might be tempting to put money in an envelope on special occasions, like graduations, we have creative ideas to solve those gifting dilemmas, too.
