Kids Gift Guide 2023

Kids Gift Guide 2023

When you need to think of gift ideas in the moment, it’s always tough! I’ve compiled a list of all my favorite kids gift ideas from 5 years – 9 years (and a little beyond) to make it easy to shop. And as always, just reach out on Instagram if you have more questions about any of the items!

*I make a really tiny comission off these links (like, pennies, but it still makes a difference!). I’m always so grateful when you shop and purchase through my links and support Mini Voyager and my time making these guides.*

Kids Gift Ideas

1. Lego Friends Theater Set
For Lego-loving kids, there’s so many fun sets out there. This one is one of our favorites becuase it allows a lot of creative play after it’s built- kids love making up shows with the lego friends.

2. Starlight Projector
We have this in the kids’ rooms and it’s such a cool thing to turn on at night. I love that it has a timer too so it doesn’t stay on all night.

3. World’s Smallest Sorry
This game works just like the full-size one- It makes it so fun for on the road (or as a stocking stuffer)

4. Doll-size shopping cart
For kids who love American Girl, this shopping cart comes with so much fun mini food.

This is a great option for an electric scooter for kids. Our 8 yr old is getting this for Christmas.

We love bringing this game on the go. My kids love competing to run out of cards first.

7. Friendship bracelet loop kit
This friendship bracelet maker comes with a twist- you add the thread and twist it into different designs.
