Gift Guide For Young
Sometimes buying for little ones is tough (because they outgrow everything so fast) or you just don’t know what to buy someone of that age.
Here are just some of the things that I have found to be a winner every single time I have bought for the age between Newborn-seven years. Here is my gift guide for young children. Hope this helps…
- Anything from Barefoot Books– this is a company that LOVES inspiring children with stories. They offer books, games, puzzles, and more. I recommend this company to anyone looking for an original and thoughtful gift for kids ages Newborn-9yrs. Click below to see the newest…
- Paint With Water Books for the little ones in your family- you have to buy a case at a time, but it is only $24 for 24 books. I always buy these for the kids in our family in the 2-5 range. The books have dried paint dots. All your little one has to do is dip their paintbrush in water and brush over the dots and it fills in the painting nicely without the mess.
- Melissa & Doug On the Go, WATER WOW pads. These pads are freaking amazing, completely mess free, and affordable. You fill the water reservoir and use it to brush across the pads, the picture will fill with color as though you have spent careful time painting the picture. Then, magically, once the water evaporates, the painting goes white again, awaiting the next water re-coat. Your little one can paint (without the mess) over and over again, anywhere you go, and create a perfect painting every time. Then, once the painting is filled in, there is a search and find to complete with the items that are now visible.
- ADORABLE animal hats for kids– you get one free one to start you out through my link.
- Cute furniture for kids from Totally Kids– I got one of their bean bag chairs and my daughter LOVES it. She can sit on it, climb all over it, and often falls asleep on it. Must have for all parents. This company has lots of other fun and cute furniture for your little person.
- Puzzle Globe– A fun way to learn geography with lights, animals found in those areas, and famous landmarks.
- Tricycle– These can be great for inside or out, ages 2+. It was such an exciting feat when my two and a half year old started peddling around the house.
- Dance game for toddlers– This game is great for young ages because the dice is large and soft. Whichever color the dice lands on, you pick a coordinating card that tells you to do some type of dance movement. Nobody wins, but everybody has fun.
- Re-usable sticker books- themed– The stickers are sort of thick and puffy, can be placed in the themed scenery (there are MANY different ones), and be re-used. This helps your child learn animal environments, which household items go in which part of the house, everyday dressing and accessories, etc. Hours of fun for sure.
- Magnetic building blocks– I forget how magical some things in life are, and magnets are definitely one of them. This set is super cool because you can create SO many different items and creatures with ease.
- Walking bike– This is a big helper with developing gross motor skills. No pedals involved, the child just sits on the bike and walks it around. My daughter started using this around age one and is three and still uses it consistently.
- Kids foam fold out couch– these are great for everyday use, sleepovers, and reading corners. They come in just about every character material possible. It is a couch and then unfolds into an adorable mini bed.
- Highlights Magazine– for ALL AGES. The magazines grow with your children, offer stories, hidden picture puzzles, educational activities, and they offer a $1 trial issue! Subscriptions are a unique gift because it keeps on giving all year long.
- Reading Eggs online subscription– This is for ages 2-13. Will help greatly improve your child’s ability to read. There is a guarantee so if you do not like what you see, you get a full refund (plus a two week free trial to start). There are over 2500 ebooks, games, and activities to help get your child reading in the shortest time possible.
- iSeeMe– Personalized children’s books. This could be a lifelong cool gift that is personalized for the child you are buying for. Their name is integrated into the story, plus other items you can personalize to make the gift that extra special.
- National Geographic Little Kids Subscription– for all those animal lovers. My daughter and I love to read, and she is always interested if it has anything to do with animals. Another favorite.
- National Geographic Kids: Little Kids First Big Books
- Pattern Blocks – these are a great tool for puzzle training. They teach your child to match the shapes for different puzzle cards.
- Monster Bowling Game– tons of fun for kids and adults, and no worries about getting hurt or damaging anything in your house. Helps with their gross motor skills and aim. Total fun.
- Pegboard Early Learning Game– This game is good for little ones 2 years and up. There are different pictures that you can match the colored buttons into the appropriate hole per picture. This helps them match colors, practice their fine motor skills, and introduces the idea of puzzles and games.
Hope this list helps your shopping along, these are all the gifts that others have given to us and kept my daughter’s interest, so I know they are good:)
