Christmas is Coming: Children’s Gift Ideas

Most people have a least one child on their Christmas list, perhaps even many. Here are a few favorites from our house that might help you with ideas for those young ones you plan to buy for this year.

1. Melissa and Doug Products  – we have several Melissa and Doug puzzles and the boys love them. They are study and attractive looking. They also have quite a few educational items. I have found that Kohl’s is good place to purchase these products. The often have sales on their toys, and by combining the sale with a percent off coupon I can usually get them cheaper than on Amazon.

2. Trio Blocks – we were introduced to these last year and our boys have spent endless hours playing with these. They build all sorts of things…but mostly guns and swords. 🙂

3. Books – we love books at our house! Here are just a few of our favorites: books by Lois Lenski,  My First Little House books, Snapshot Picture Library book series, Curious George books, “The Jesus Storybook Bible“, “Mighty Machines“, “Caps for Sale“, “Things that Go“, “Where’s the Dragon?” and of course Dr. Seuss books.

4. Little Einstein DVD’s – these DVD’s are fun for little ones to watch and I love how they teach them about music and are also interactive. My boys have learned quite a lot about music and instruments by watching these.

Do you have any great kids gift ideas to add? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
