One might think that the excessive amount of “stuff” out there for kids would make gift shopping for them easier but it actually makes it more challenging. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you’re not alone.
Their lists to Santa are sure to provide insight – but what about the surprises? No matter what age you are, there’s nothing quite like finding an unexpected treat under the tree. For my four-year-old who loves to play make-believe, the “surprise factor” is coming in the form of his very own stage and a variety of costumes (including this one, this one, and this one). He has made no mention of costumes on his list to Santa, but he loves to get into character so I know these will be a big hit.
I’ve perused the web and put together a list filled with surprises for kids of all ages. From precious knitwear for newborns and ride-on toys for toddlers to under-$50 thrills that are sure to delight even the hardest-to-please teens, this gift guide covers it all.
Below, a hit list with ideas for all the kiddos on your list – whether they’re your own or someone else’s.
