The Best Holiday Gifts For The Kids This Year

My kids are growing up SO fast. 🙁 I wish I could freeze time or S-L-O-W it down. Right now, they both still love stuffed animals and toys… but I know those days are numbered. Soon we will be entering the land of electronics and gift cards. Yikes! Well, in order to savor this moment a little more and also help you all with your holiday shopping, I wanted to share some gift ideas for the little ones on your lists, whether they are your kiddos, grandkids, nieces or nephews. These are geared for kids of all ages, and they are SO good!

More gift guides for her, him, beauty gifts, luxe gifts, gifts under $150, fitness gifts, and last-minute gifts are coming soon so be on the lookout for those!

Gifts For Kids, Erin Busbee of Busbee Style sharing the best gifts for kids of all ages all from

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16

#1 | Polaroid Camera

Isn’t it funny how everything “old” comes back? This polaroid camera is a big hit with the kiddos and would be a great gift! And, just REALLY fun for the kids over holiday break. This color has limited stock so make sure to check out this one with other color options too!

#2 | Little Tikes Basketball Set

You can set up this basketball set for the little ones inside or outside. It comes with an oversized rim and small ball. This helps to develop motor skills and coordination.
NOTE: For ages 1 1/2 to 5 years

#3 | Rainbow LEGO Set

I don’t know a single kid who doesn’t LOVE Legos! And this 1504 piece rainbow set is so fun!
For ages 3+
Shop more by LEGO here.

#4 | Crosley Record Player

Like I said…everything comes back around. Except the new iteration is typically even  better! This gift is for kids that are a little older. If you’re buying for someone who loves music, this is perfect! You can also shop vinyl records here so they have something to listen to right away! I want one of these!!

#5 | Frozen Elsa Doll

Frozen and Frozen 2 are still VERY popular with the little ones. So this Elsa doll will no doubt be as big a hit as “Let It Go!” This Elsa doll actually does sing. She performs “Show Yourself” from Frozen 2 and her head and mouth actually move to the music!
For ages 3+

#6 | Nintendo Switch

For the kids that already love electronics and gaming, the Nintendo Switch is the perfect present! They can play it handheld or plug it into the TV to play with multiple people. The Switch Lite is another great option (can only be played handheld). For the kids that are really into gaming…try snagging them the new Xbox Series X. There’s limited stock so if you can get your hands on one, consider yourself lucky (and a gift-giving genius)!

#7 | Toy Truck

This toy truck by The Animal gives kids the ultimate unboxing experience…the truck is designed to break out of its own packaging! You yell and knock on the box to make the truck growl, roar, and eventually claw out of the box! And you can repeat the unboxing. I mean…  I want one of these too!!
For ages 4+

#8 | Power Wheels Dune Racer

Buyer beware… you will have a young driver in the house if you buy this dune racer. Isn’t it SO cool??? This car is battery powered, low to the ground, can fit two kids, and has power lock brakes and parent-controlled high-speed lockout!
For ages 3-7

Gage and Elizabeth had a battery-powered Ford pickup and there was nothing better than watching the two of them ride around the driveway in that truck. It was an absolute joy to watch!

#9 | Hatchimals Flying Pixie

This cute little pixie can actually fly! Recharge with am included USB and easily stop flight by touching the wings or grabbing by the feet. I can already see this pixie ending up on top of our wooden beams. 😉
For ages 6+

#10 | Razor Electric Scooter

A Razor scooter is always a cool gift to get as a kid. And this one is electric…making it even cooler!
For ages 8+

#11 | Monopoly: Star Wars The Child Edition

If you didn’t already know, The Child is one of the biggest Disney characters to hit the shelves from the TV series on Disney+ called The Mandalorian. There are TONS of character toys, games, etc. to choose from all based around The Child (aka Baby Yoda)! This Monopoly edition is perfect for those Mandalorian and Baby Yoda lovers! Okay, NOW I understand why SNL was doing Baby Yoda skits.
For ages 8+
Shop more Star Wars merch here.

#12 | Air Hockey Table

An air hockey table for $99…yes, please!! This gift would make you the coolest mom/grandma/aunt…EVER!

#13 | Hot Wheels Sky Crash Tower Track Set

Hot Wheels has been around forever and this new track set is perfect for this year’s Hot Wheels and race track loving kids! Gage asks for a Hot Wheels track every year. He loves them!!
For ages 3+

#14 | Light Up Rainbow Hoverboard

Elizabeth told me she wanted a hoverboard this year and when I saw that this one has LED rainbow lights, I knew it would be the perfect gift for her! (And, me…let’s be real) Can we also discuss how the back to the future skateboard is now an actual thing????
For ages 12+

#15 | Little Tikes Play Kitchen

This little play kitchen was built to perfectly fit into corners for more play space! Where was this when Elizabeth was little?? It has 20+ accessories and recipe cards, it makes cooking sounds, has clicking knobs, functioning doors, and storage.
For ages 2+
Shop more from Little Tikes here.

#16 | Bean Bag Chair

You can’t go wrong with a comfy bean bag chair! This one comes in purple, gray, navy, and black. This will be a hit for kids, tweens and teens alike.
