Holiday Gift Guide 2023

Holiday Gift Guide 2023


It’s that time again. The time of the year that you look around your house and think, “These children do not need one more single toy!” And yet, Christmas is coming and while you could offer experience gifts like a membership to the zoo, many of you (just like me) want something for your children to unwrap on Christmas morning!

I have compiled six lists for you of my top favorites in each category. Gifts for the crafter, the mover, the dreamer, the innovator, the naturalist, and the gamer. Every item is linked to my Amazon storefront where you can find all of my favorite gift ideas in one place.

Gifts for the crafter 

These are some of my favorite for creative kids who love to craft and create. With these, your children can start a new project, advance their skills, or stock up on new craft supplies.

Hi Kelly and Anna,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention! The links should all be working correctly!


Love this list so much, but the latch hook kit (the one I was especially excited about!) is linked to the sewing book. Hoping you can fix it! Thank you:)


The link under “Tracing Paper” takes me to the beeswax crayons.
