The Best Holiday Gifts For The Kids This Year

Gifts For The Kids: Hottest Holiday Toys

My kids are growing up SO fast. 🙁 I wish I could freeze time or S-L-O-W it down. They are getting to the ages where there really aren’t any toys on their Christmas lists and we are entering the land of electronics, video games, and gift cards. Yikes! Well, 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 some of the most popular toys for the 2022 holiday season! And, there’s something for kids of ALL ages.

Most Popular Gifts for Kids

All of these gifts are from Amazon so you know you’ll get quick shipping. Many are from their “Toys We Love 2022” section and are expected to be VERY popular this gift-giving season. Sooo… you might want to get a jump start on your shopping! Does anyone else remember the Cabbage Patch craze or how about Tickle Me Elmo?? The little people don’t tend to love the words “sold out”. Well let’s face it, none of us do!

If you’re looking for more toys, you’ll find a huge selection here.

And don’t forget to check and see which toys need batteries so you can stock up. Anyone else made that rookie mistake?! Keep scrolling for all of my favorites below…

Foldable Scooter

A scooter is always a cool gift to get as a kid. And this one is lightweight and foldable so it's more portable than any other scooter! Your kiddo can actually carry it in their backpack. This is definitely more of a big kid scooter, ages 8-12, but I linked one with bigger wheels for younger ones too.

Kids Cam

I would have loved something like this as a kid! You can take pictures and instantly print them. Plus, you can add effects, stickers, filters, and borders to the photos. The photos can also be turned into drawings for your kiddo to color. For ages 4+.

Magic Mixie

This is a really unique and interesting toy. You follow the steps to create spells, summon the magic mist, give your Mixie its voice and color and THEN teach it how to tell fortunes. There are a lot of steps behind creating the spells so it's best for ages 8 and up, but it's pretty cool especially if your little one is fond of magic!

Retro Roller Skates

I recently shared that I purchased some roller skates because skating brought me so much joy as a kid! These come in 6 different colors and are perfect for beginners. I would have definitely wanted the rose gold!

Tricked-Out Trike

This just makes me laugh! A Harley-Davison tricycle...I mean what could be cooler? It has large foot petals to make it easy for little riders to scootch along and durable tires for safety. This same model comes in Barbie theme, Hot Wheels, and Thomas & Friends too.

LEGO Disney Encanto Set

LEGO sets never disappoint and if your kid is a big fan of Disney's Encanto, this Madrigal House set will make them super happy! For ages 6+.

Little Campers

If your little one is a fan of the big outdoors, they'll love this camping set complete with a pop-up tent, and camping stove! There's a great age range on this set as well...from ages 3-10.

LED Skateboard

This cool skateboard is perfect for any kid interested in skateboarding! And it comes in a bunch of cool pattern options AND has colorful LED light wheels.

Monster Jam

For true car lovers, this is the perfect gift! It’s a massive 4 feet high, 2 feet wide track and elevator set made for housing multiple cars at once. Lights and sounds too! For ages 3+

Little Drivers

Buyer beware…you will have a young driver in the house if you buy this mini-Bentley. Isn’t it SO cool??? This toy car is manually operated by kids or taken over by parents with the attached remote controller. It also has a 3-point safety belt and comes in multiple colors!

Remote Control Car

This remote-control stunt car flips, turns, and lights up. It also has a spare rechargeable battery so the fun can go on, and on...and on. Ages 6+

Art Tablet

This light-up sketch tablet is perfect for your budding artist. It includes 6 (washable!) markers with a storage tray so you can even take it along on car trips...where was this when my kids were younger??

Walkie Talkie

Growing up in the 80's I always wanted a set of walkie-talkies! This was obviously WAY before cell phones. These are upgraded though because they come with rechargeable batteries. These look durable and would be good for ages 5+.

Dance It Out!

When kids are inside during the colder months, exercise can be a challenge... that's why this light-up dance pad would be so fun to break out! It comes with built-in music but you can also connect to your own tunes via Bluetooth...a definite bonus!

STEM Gaming Kit

My kids never put "educational toy" on their Christmas list but this is so sneakily educational and fun! It comes with a gamepad and magnetic tiles that are used for various different STEM games once paired with the app on your tablet. I guess if they're going to be on their device, they may as well learn something! For ages 5-10.
