2022 Holiday Gift Guide For Kids

2022 Holiday Gift Guide for the Kids

Share holiday gift ideas for the kids this year! We tend to stick to the purchasing strategy of: “Something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.”

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! How is the week treating you? It’s been a busy one up here and I’m currently in Phoenix for a mastermind trip. I’ll share more details in Fri Faves tomorrow!

I’m really excited about today’s gift guide because children really bring the magic to Christmas time. I’m basically like Buddy the Elf and thought that nothing could possibly make the season more fun…and then we had kids. They just magnify all the magic of the holidays. We are getting our holiday shopping done early so I wanted to put some ideas out there if you are doing the same thing.

More gift guides from this year:

For him

When we buy vacations for the kids, we keep things on the simpler side. They get their Santa gifts and stocking stuffers, and then from us we stick to the “something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.” It checks all the main boxes and stops things from going too bananas with gifts from my parents and their other relatives. [Another hack: any gifts that aren’t opened in the first couple of days are stocked away in the playroom. I bring them out on a rainy day or when the kids say they’re looking for something to do.]

Today I’m sharing some of the things on their personal wish lists, along with tried-and-true favorites if you’re shopping for kids their ages (5 and almost 9) this holiday season!! I’d love to hear your kids’ gift requests in the comments and any ideas you have!
