For the past few years, I have participate in a Christmas Gift Guide for Kids with other bloggers. Up until this year, I have focused on gifts that can be made for kids. Last year, I couldn’t find many new ideas.
If you like to make gifts for your kids, you can look at these gift guides that I have put together in the past.
- DIY Christmas Gift Guide for Kids (20+ gifts I found in 2014)
- 25 DIY Gifts for Kids (2015)
- Over 30 DIY Gifts for Kids (2016)
- Then in 2017, I shared 20 more DIY Gifts for Kids.
- Here are 8 gifts I have made for my kids over the years.
That’s over 100 DIY gifts!
This year I thought I would share gifts that you can get on Amazon that will encourage your kids to get off their devices and that will encourage creativity.
Many of these gifts could be put together in a set, so I’ll try to organize these gift ideas in categories. These are gifts my kids would love, and I have bought some of them for my kids! Even if these aren’t the exact gifts your kids will like, maybe this gift list will give you a great idea of something you can get your kids this Christmas season.
