Christmas Gift Ideas For Kids

What Do Kids Really Want For the Holidays This Year?

Kids love gifts– but during the Holidays they are spoiled rotten with more gifts than they could ever really need! Certain gifts will be used far more often than others, becoming treasures and go-to activities, while other gifts end up hogging space before being packed away into trash bags, and given away to the Salvation Army. Avoid buying useless gifts for kids this holiday season, and use the savings to splurge on something your kids will really love,  grow with, and enjoy for years to come. Here are some holiday gift ideas for kids 4 and up!

Swing Set

Sure, a swing set might be a pricier gift idea but for parents that have more than one child, it can turn into an affordable gift idea, as a swing set can serve as a present to all of your children (who are of age to enjoy a swing set, of course). Plus, kids spend too much time indoors and a swing set will keep them active and outdoors for hours.

Thomas the Train Wooden Railway Play Table $250

I worked at a Totally Thomas Toy Depot back when I was in High School and I saw first-hand how wild kids are about Thomas The Train. These wooden railway tables (and the train sets that go on top) are a kids’ equivalent of a Hermes handbag for grown women– no joke! Many accessories can be bought to go along with this table, including storage bins that slide underneath, helping to keep play areas looking more presentable.

Kids’ favorite gifts all have one thing in common– they can be used in an unlimited number of ways. A playhouse allows for this exactly, so many different things can be done in a playhouse; kids can play games inside, read a book, put on a play, play house, or do whatever it is they please in their very own space.

Grand Portico Mansion Playhouse $7300

If you’re the type of parent that wants to enjoy your child’s playhouse too, perhaps this child-size mansion is your dream come true, considering there are two separate doors– one for children, and another set of double doors for adults. This best gift ever includes 10 flower boxes, 22 windows (all of which work and have both safety glass and screens), and a loft with a real working ladder. If you’re feeling wealthy this Christmas, give the best gift on the block– literally!
