Gift Guide | For the Kids

Dec 7, 2018

PJ SET (on sale) | also in Stripes 

Today I am sharing some Gift Ideas for the Kids.  I wasn’t sure exactly to narrow it down so I am sharing ideas for boys and girls of several age groups.  I didn’t want to inundate you with so many choices so I really narrowed it down to my top choices and many are ones we own and love.  I didn’t include much for babies and younger kids because I don’t know much about what is new and cool for babies.  Kids 4 and up I know! 

Doodle Mat– This is in my cart for Frances Moon.  She loves art and this is such a fun idea! You fill the magic pen with water and can color. 

Walkie Talkie– Sterling and Frances Moon have been begging me for Walkie Talkies.  These come in several colors.

Instant Camera- We gave Sterling one these last year for Christmas and it is so cool.  A fun thing for the kids to snap pictures with! 

Mini Trampoline– This more for younger kids but I will say Frances Moon still loves these.  Wears them out- haha! 

Make Up Kit– I ordered this for Frances Moon it is such a cute play make-up kit that washes off easily and only $12- perfect for the girly girl.

Mini Drone- This is on Sterling’s wishlist.  

Poopsie Pooey Puitton Slime Kit– so I am not the biggest fan of slime but this has been rated one of the tops gifts of 2018.  My kids are begging for it and it is kind of cute. 

Art Kit- We have this kit and love it.  It is awesome for traveling or dinners out to occupy the kids.  I love that it comes in a cute carry case. 

Tote– I love these totes for the Kid’s.  They are currently half off and only $21.  I put this Rose Gold on Frances Moon’s list.  More colors HERE

Pom Pom Scarf– This is just the cutest thing ever.  

I love this Puffy Version for the boys. 

Chess/Checkers Set- Sterling loves to play chess and checkers and this is such a cool set that is electronic to help the kids learn..

2 in 1 Scooter– This is great for ages 2-14.  It is a 3 wheeled scooter with an attachable seat and LED Wheel lights.  I am ordering for Frances Moon because sterling already has one. 

    Boogie Board– We have the regular version of this and the kids love it.  Sterling actually uses his to write his to do lists (just like his Mama).  This new one is color!  Great for road trips.

Osmo creative Kit for the Ipad– this is such an awesome gift.  It includes an Ipad stand and features an animated friend who brings your drawings to life.  Great for any creative kids. 

Also comes in this Genius version as well.

Nerf Laser Tag – This an awesome at home laser tag game. 

Hooked Ring Toss Game– this looked like fun for the whole family.  I love games like this. 

Rainbocorn– Frances Moon just got this for her birthday.  It is so cute for any little girls. 

3D Night Light– this is the coolest thing ever.  You can choose from several different animals.  Under $20.
