Friday Faves: Holiday Gifts for the Kids

FF 12.01.2015 Gift guide (flower girls, ring bearers, kids)


Gifts for the sweet kids in your life – whether they’re naughty or nice!

For our third installment of the holiday gift guide, my list of gifts are for the wee ones, the munchkins, the hobbitses in your life. Rather than a list of traditional ring bearer personalized t-shirts, personalized baseball bats or personalized necklaces, my lovely list for your little ones includes gifts that are unique, crafty, cute and spur the imagination, with a little bit of learning and tons of fun.

If you missed the first round of gifts for your best ladies, you can find it here, followed up next by gifts for your best men. And, of course, Event Plan-It’s gift to you is still green!


chalkboard wall decal

1. Chalkboard Wall Decal – If you want to keep the excellent paint job you and your partner spent time (or money…or both!) doing, but your little one really thinks the world is his canvas, encourage his talent and meet him halfway with these great chalkboard wall decals. His art stays in one place and so does your paint job. All’s well that ends well.

2. flower girl headband

2. Flower Girl headband – These beautiful creations are a great way to get your sweet little flower girl excited for the big day.

3. flower necklace

3. Flower Girl Necklace – Everyone knows I’m a lover of puns and I just couldn’t pass up this absolutely delicious necklace of cute pastel flowers for you flower girl. Anyone? Anyone? No, just me? Ahh well…better pun next time 😛

4. DIY Crossbow

4. Build-It-Yourself Wooden Play Crossbow – So maybe your little ones are too young and impressionable to watch The Walking Dead. Doesn’t mean you can’t teach ’em to be little Daryls! This wooden crossbow puts a new spin on model trains and airplanes and is just a liiiiiittle bit more exciting than a Build Your Own Kite. Make sure the kids are playing under your supervision and always outdoors, in wide open spaces. And hey, PSA: Teach the kiddos to be responsible – no aiming at people, pets, windows, or cars!

5. crochet shark blanket

5. Crochet Shark Blanket – Because Winter is Coming (and yes, Wedding is Coming too) and there’s seriously nothing better than a good old Snuggie. That is, unless it’s a leopard print Snuggie. (You betcha I own one!) This sweet crocheted shark is a kid-friendly and creative spin on the Snuggie. Maybe we’ll name him Sharkie.

There's nothing better than a good old Snuggie. Unless it's a leopard print Snuggie. Or a Sharkie. Click To Tweet

6. kids teepee

6. Kids Teepee Tent – One of the best things about this gift here is that it forces kids to get off those bright screens and back into their incredible imaginations. It fits perfectly in living rooms and makes for a great excuse for “Build a Fort with Blankets” night and “Let’s Camp Out in the Backyard” night. I want an adult version!

7. mandala games

7. Mandala Game – Many families turn to alternative learning and choose to place their children in the creative education institutions such as Waldorf Schools and Montessori schools. These Mandala games will be very familiar to families whose kids are steeped in the alternative education curriculum, but it’s a great learning tool that builds consciousness, patience and awareness in any children.

8. gigi blocks


8. Gigi Blocks – There’s Lego blocks, Mega Blocks (anyone remember K’nex??), Goldie Blox and now, there’s Gigi Blocks. Ingeniously crafted out of corrugated and sculpted cardboard, these lightweight but sturdy blocks are perfectly stackable as bricks and help kids build more than just things – they can build whole worlds. 

9. glow in the dark necklace

9. Glow In The Dark Necklace – You know when you’re 7 and you’re not quite into make-up yet but you still make sure you get cast as Xena the Warrior Princess in every adventure, and the crucial moment comes when you need to prove your power to the non-believers but you can’t find your Necklace of Power? Enter, the Glow in the Dark necklace.

socks bookmark

10. Bookmark – This just killed me: bookmarks with attached feet. It comes in a variety of figurines (like Where’s Waldo and the above featured Superman) and is for your little one whose a nosey parker and can’t seem to get enough of the Goodreads.
