The Best Gifts for 1-Year-Olds
Our sweet and energetic one-year-olds are no longer the newborns that stay in one place when you lay them down. They're on the move and curious about everything around them. Help them foster their independence, develop their fine motor skills and delight in the world around them with these fun gift ideas.
The Best Gifts for 2-Year-Olds
This is such a fun age. Two-year-olds are growing at a rapid pace, learning new skills (seemingly every minute) and saying the cutest things. The hardest part is keeping them from dumping out every bin and cabinet in your house. These clever and totally fun gift ideas are ready for the challenge of entertaining your little ones for more than 15 minutes.
The Best Gifts for 3-Year-Olds
Hello, preschoolers. Open-ended toys are the best gifts for active and imaginative three-year-olds. In addition to expanding their minds and creativity, they also deliver age-appropriate learning. Play is so important for little kids, and these top-rated gifts are ready for all-day play.
The Best Gifts for 4-Year-Olds
Creative and constantly moving four-year-olds need gifts that can keep up with their never-ending energy. Look for gifts that encourage them to use their artistic skills, play pretend and get their bodies moving.
The Best Gifts for 5-Year-Olds
Five-year-olds are a bundle of words, energy and playfulness. Let them get all their wiggles out and creative juices flowing with clever toys that fill their days with glee and encourage learning.
The Best Gifts for 6-Year-Olds
Firmly out of the tiny-tot age, six-year-olds are at the start of the magic age where they have some independence (no more diapers and naps) but still want to be a part of all the family activities (not teenagers yet!). This is prime time for family games, showing off their personality with arts and crafts, and filling their brains with knowledge.
The Best Gifts for 7-Year-Olds
The social circles of seven-year-olds start growing, and they love being with friends just as much as family. Gifts that inspire time spent together, such as games and crafts, are perfect for this age group.
The Best Gifts for 8-Year-Olds
Middle childhood at its best. Get eight-year-olds excited with loom bands to make tons of creations, fun (but also kind of gross) games such as Taco vs. Burrito and, always a winner: slime.
The Best Gifts for 9-Year-Olds
Don't let nine-year-olds fool you. They may feel grown up, but they still love to play. Look for gifts that spark their interests, whether it be STEM, art, sports, reading or games.
The Best Gifts for 10-Year-Olds
They've made it a decade! Amp up their season with cool science projects and tie-dye kits. Enhance their influencer status with a creator cam, and get them moving with a hover soccer ball. Think outside the box with these playful, creative gifts for your fun-loving kiddos.
The Best Gifts for 11-Year-Olds
Goodbye to elementary school, and hello to middle school. Our 11-year-olds need a lot of independent time, as well as quality time with us. Gift them activities you can do together, as well as buys that stretch their brains and creativity.
The Best Gifts for Tweens and Teens
Don't let tween and teen shopping scare you. They still enjoy a lot of the things their younger counterparts love — being creative, STEM, hanging out with friends and showing off their personality.
