My husband and I set certain criteria when buying gifts for our children. We look for gifts that aren’t too messy, don’t take up much room, and can bring many hours of enjoyment. This gift guide was based around that.
Also, healthy living is a high priority in our lives so here’s a little tip on stocking stuffers. We don’t fill stockings full of regular candy. We include a few organic candy options in my kid’s stockings and other non-food items like a jump rope or really cool toothbrush or hairbrush. My kids really like this organic candy and this candy that is free from the top ten common allergens. They also sell this brand and other healthier candy options for the stockings at Thrive Market which is where I buy my children’s holiday treats.
Here is a list of gifts my children have been given and enjoyed, and I’ve included links for your shopping convenience. My family loves electronics so one electronic gift is included in this gift guide.
There are some fun ideas in this gift guide for kids ages three to five!
Melissa and Doug products for a great selection of wooden toys for the person looking for a more natural gift. They have wooden gifts for kids with all kinds of interests. I included this image of the 100 piece wooden building blocks set since they are classic, and which kid doesn’t love blocks!
Usborne Books & More for the best selection of children’s books. I bought my children this book bundle which is twelve Christmas reading and activity books to give over the twelve days of Christmas. My kids love books so this is an amazing gift for them! Their love of reading is why I became an Usborne Consultant; message me if you need help ordering some books or click the link to order.
Bookroo is another option for children’s books. They have a subscription service that my children have enjoyed and each book comes gift wrapped too. Click the link to get 15% off your order.
Color Wonder is an awesome gift for kids. Parents love them because the markers only color on the Color Wonder paper so no more coloring on walls or accidental marks on furniture. Kids love it because the color shows up only on Color Wonder paper from the Color Wonder markers, and it is so fascinating. There is a wide variety of Color Wonder books to choose from. We usually buy a few of them at a time because kids can color for hours and want to start on a second. I have Paw Patrol fans in my family, but the Disney Princess Color Wonder is popular too.
Lego Duplo has so many great sets for younger children. Legos can keep my children entertained for hours! This deluxe train set is awesome!
This is a great choice if you’re in the market for a children’s tablet. My kids recently received this as a gift from their grandmother and they LOVE it! My children are now able to play quietly alongside me as I work on my blog. It includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a kid-proof case, and a 2-year guarantee. There is a parent setting to set time limits too.
Kiwi Crate is a subscription service for kid’s activity boxes. They have activity boxes for kids 0 to 16+. Koala Crate is the line for kids 3-4 years and Kiwi Crate is for kids 5-8 years. There is a 60% off sale for Black Friday if you want to try it out at a deep discount. My kids would get so excited when they received their activity box in the mail!
I hope you found some helpful gift ideas in this gift guide for kids ages three to five! This gift guide was kid-approved by my three-year-old. He was so excited looking at the gift ideas on the page!
