Today is is all about THE KIDS! Let’s be honest, shopping for kids is the easiest and also the most fun during the holidays. The options are endless and there are always a plethora of possibilities catered to gender, age, and interest.
Besides what I’ve got listed below, I have a few creative ideas that are more of an experience as well as customized box subscriptions or pieces:
In The Book loves making kids’ dreams come true by putting their names within the stories or on the covers of their favorite books. They have a wide range of children’s books that you can personalize with the child’s name and photo. You can also add a special message to the title page. From Disney and Marvel books to educational encyclopedias, from babies to teens, they have it all!
This is a subscription box, but a bit different. I first shared these on Instagram because Elle is obsessed! Her aunt gifted them to her and I thought it was such a fun idea so I had to share. Each box celebrates the power of play with creative activities and collectibles that your kids can play with over and over again. Each month has a new theme and even the box that it comes in is part of the fun.
Slumberkins is on a mission to promote early emotional learning. Their characters and stories use evidenced-based techniques to teach little ones important social-emotional skills. Through pro-active and supportive narratives, each collection is intentionally crafted to build resilient, caring, and confident children. They have so many different characters and tops to choose from and it’s really such a creative gift idea!

TICKETS TO A FUN EVENT OR SHOW
I love experience gifts and it’s so easy when it comes to little kids. If you live in Chicago then lunch at The American Girl would be fun or going to a Build-A -Bear Workshop. Also there are so many pop-ups in Chicago at the moment like Harry Potter, The Museum of Ice Cream, The Color Factory, The Sloomoo Institute, etc. You can even go all out with a trip to Disney Land or Disney World! SO fun!
Now onto the toys…
