Toddler and School Aged Gift Ideas



With only 14 shopping days left (and even less if you are online shopping like me!) it's crunch time for Santa's Elves.  Today I am sharing an Amazon Haul of things I have purchased for Lilly and JD.   I really like trying to come up with categories of gifts I want to buy each child and sticking to that.  Trying so badly not to go overboard.

This year the kids big gift was.... a house, oh yea, we have moved, that may or may not explain the long absence from the blog.  I am however very present on my YouTube Channel, and have even taken on the challenge of Vlogmas.  Posting a new video each day for the Month of December, did I mention we just moved.  Anyway, trying to convince the kids that their new home was also their Christmas present wasn't going to happen!  

This year we decided to purchase one BIG item for each child, and then some smaller gifts to go with that.  I love giving books, board games, clothing, and limit the toys that won't get played with.  

Matthew's gifts are pretty much all TBD, as my husband does the shopping for him.  I may or may not be starting to nag that the shopping needs to be done, but alas not much progress has been made on his list.

Lilly's Big gift is a Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel.  She loves doing crafts and is sure to get good use out of it.  We also purchased the Melissa & Doug Easel Accessory Set and the Melissa & Doug Easel Paper Roll (Set of 2)

Joshua's Big gift is the Step2 Handy Helpers Workbench Building Set .   He is going to LOVE working next to his Daddy on this!  I can't wait!  To go along with it we got the 
Learning Resources Pretend & Play Tape Measure and Bruder Construction Toy Hard Hat.

For Lilly I also purchased the following items:

Disney Frozen Matching Game
Disney Doc McStuffins Operation Game
My Little Pony Crystal Princess Palace Playset

For Joshua I also purchased the following items:

Supermarket Cash Register

 Transportation Books:

Cars: Rushing! Honking! Zooming!
Trains: Steaming! Pulling! Huffing!
Trucks: Whizz! Zoom! Rumble!
Airplanes: Soaring! Diving! Turning!

Another item I purchased for Joshua (which I didn't show in the Haul) is a gift for his birthday, but is a great idea for Christmas as well.  My kids L-O-V-E Paw Patrol and JD is going to be so excited for this.

Lastly, the 2 games I purchased for Matthew, I am sure he will enjoy.

Mexican Train Domino Game
NFL Game Day Board Game


I hope this gave you some help and ideas if you are still looking for the perfect gift!  To see my entire Amazon Haul, be sure to watch the video below.  To follow along on my Vlogmas adventure, be sure to subscribe to my channel to see more!
