I’m SO excited to share my gift guides with you this week! When I asked on social media what holiday content you’re most looking forward to… gift guides were definitely it! I was thrilled to hear it because they are by far my favorite things to create for you.
To me, there is no better feeling than putting a lot of thought into finding the perfect gift for someone you love. In today’s gift guide for the gentlemen in your life, I included a variety of price points from stocking stuffers to splurges and tried to vary the types of gifts based on different interests of the people we love the most.
As for you, I hope you enjoy this curated list of items as you shop for your friends and family… and I promise I won’t tell if you pick up a couple treats for yourself!
If you’re a regular reader, you likely know that I’m currently expecting twins (see our announcement post here). Since they’re our first kids, I’m not yet quite a pro on kid holiday gifts… but in today’s post, I’m relying on insights from the gifts all the other kiddos in our lives have loved in recent years. I’m sure in future years, my kids’ gift guide will be much more extensive! Haha.

1 – Amazon Fire Kids Tablet| 2 – Bicycle| 3 – Puzzle Set| 4 – Dress-Up Set| 5 – Play Doh Set| 6 – Classic Lego Set| 7 – Trampoline| 8 – Melissa & Doug Water Wow Travel Coloring Books| 9 – Lava Rocks Science Kit| 10 – National Geographic Volcano Science Kit |11 – Art Easel| 12 – Magna-Tiles
I can’t believe I’m starting off the list with a tablet because I’m not a huge fan of a lot of device usage by kiddos, especially when they’re really small. I do think that electronics have a time and a place once kids are a bit older, and this Fire Kids Tablet is a great starter option!
You just can’t beat a good bicycle for a kid… I liked this white one that would be great for boys or girls. It comes with training wheels too which is nice!
I love gifts that encourage imagination and inspire kids to daydream about all of the things they can choose to be in life. This Melissa & Doug Doctor Dress Up Set does just that.
My husband is 100% anti-trampoline because he’s nervous about injuries, but I know that I was OBSESSED with mine as a kid and there were many hours of slumber parties spent on my old trampoline.
My nephew, Bobby, is the first kid I ever saw who was obsessed with Water Wow coloring books. My sister-in-law always brings the most fun activities for him to family dinners that keep him occupied. This is one of his favorites (and mine too if I’m being honest). Ever since Bobby introduced me to these, I’ve been buying them for all the other kiddos in my life too!
Bobby is also the inspiration behind the lava rocks kit and the volcano kit on the list. Last time we visited him, he had just gotten a kit with a bunch of different science projects which were a hit for the whole family.
I keep seeing Crate and Barrel ads for this art easel, and I’m convinced that once my babies are a bit older and can use it, I’ll have to get it for them. I love encouraging creativity and self-expression and this is a great way to do that. Oh, and if you have more than one kid? It’s dual-sided so you can keep them both entertained at the same time!
Magna-Tiles are another big hit with all the kiddos in my life, and the adults seem to have just as much fun playing with them. They’re similar to building blocks but they’re magnetic.
Have something else in mind that’s not on the list? Shop some of my favorite stores here:
- Bed Bath and Beyond
- Big Fig Mattress
- Lane Bryant
- Old Navy
- Pottery Barn
- Primally Pure (Skincare)
- Universal Standard
- Woman Within
Most of all, I wish you and your family the happiest of holiday seasons. Soak in every moment and remember that gifts are great but quality time with those we love is the most important gift of all.
