Check out what I think are some of the best gifts for kids
Giving that one gift that you know will be a blessing can be quite stressful. A lot of people actually get gift giving anxiety. I know, I’ve been there and I still fight it every year.
We don’t usually have a lot of money to spend on gift giving besides our tight-knit family. But one year I would just love to get everyone I know something. Not to impress them, but to bless them. Let them know that I care. See that is why we give gifts to let them know they are special and that we had them in our thoughts while picking this perfect gift out for them.
Finding the best gifts for kids can really bring on the anxiety. Especially the older they get. It Seems most people anymore are just stressed! They are stressed because they have no money, stressed because they have too much to do, stressed because they have lost sight of the why? Keeping Christ in Christmas? It’s Jesus! We celebrate because of Him! He is the greatest gift of all. We have to remember that and come back to the “why” every time. We all get lost and need someone to grab our hand and pull us back in the right direction sometimes.
If this sounds like you? There is no shame in this. We have all been there. We all fall. We all fail. But we just need to get up and start new. Maybe you need to get back to what Christmas is all about, Keeping Christ in Christmas. Seriously just relax and rest knowing Jesus is with you. Don’t stress or struggle this Christmas. I’ve put together a little list to hopefully help you rest and take a little of the guess work out of your Christmas shopping. Here are some recommendations for, what I think are, some of the best gifts for kids.
Best Gifts for Kids
My kids love the Kindle Fire! I would definitely upgrade to 16 GB’s though! Not to mention all the free books and apps you have access to! This makes it so worth it!
Karaoke Machine! Yes! Make some memories. This is fun for the whole family. You can’t go wrong with something that will bring the whole family together. Check out this list of Top Mom’s picks. We are hoping to get one of these as a together gift for the girls this year. We love to Sing.
Lego + Minecraft = Super happy kids!! I love legos and so do my girls they could seriously sit and created for hours on the floor and build a whole city. Getting your kids something to help them get creative is always a great idea. Check out this huge list of STEM toys for kids! I love this LEGO Minecraft Snow Hideout Building Kit!
Another thing my girls love to get is clothes you can always find a good deal over at Lil Jelly Beans!
In finding the best gifts for kids we also need the best ornament too. Every year we try to get our girls an ornament that reflects who they are or something they were really into that year. We spent hours trying to find the right one. It became harder every year though so lately we have just been getting them a handcrafted ornament or something specifically made with their name engraved or something special written on it. Check out these awesome handcrafted wooden ornaments from Carl over at Wood, Ribbon and ink Etsy Shop!
Looking for a cheap, but thoughtful gift? Search Etsy for tons of great ideas. I have a little digital shop where I sell thoughtful and unique Christian scripture digital art. You can simply print, frame and give it as a gift.
Be sure to check out my Amazon store for more handpicked items. I hope this makes your Christmas gift giving a little less stressful this year! Many Blessings on you and your family!
