Gift Guide: Colorful Gifts for the Modern, Young Kids

Posted on

Hopefully, my faithful blog readers are already crossing people off their lists for holiday shopping, but in case you're anything like 2016 Kate (which is the completely forgot and paid dearly in overnight shipping), I'm here to help you cross some of the younger gift getters off your list.

Things that make children smile:

  1. Staying up late
  2. Ice Cream
  3. Gifts
  4. COLOR
  5. Puddle jumping

And making kids smile is good medicine for your soul.  There's nothing like it.  

And finding the right gift is never easy.  Whether it’s for your child, nephew, niece, grandkid, or student, it can be a challenge to find the perfect gift; the golden gift.  The one that holds their attention for more than 30 seconds.  

If shopping isn’t your jam, don’t worry.  I’ve done some sleuthing for you.  This gift guide will help you find several golden gifts!  Especially, if you want a toy that isn’t off the shelf at Target; you know, the gift that’s fun, educational, and original.  Your search for colorful gifts for the young, modern kid this holiday season ends now.  

P.S. All of these colorful gifts for kids are linked to Amazon Smile.  Never heard of Amazon Smile?  When you shop via Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations that you select (and there are LOTS of choices).

Colorku

Colorku

Colorku is a colorful version of Suduko, but instead of using numbers, you use brightly colored wooden balls.  Personally, I suck at solving Sudoku puzzles, but I'm excited to see if I can play this game with my nieces (and not throw it against the wall in frustration).  And if nothing else, it's really pretty and will look great on my coffee table. Win, win!

Little Feminist Playing Cards

Little Feminist Playing Cards

Mudpuppy’s Little Feminist Playing cards have gorgeous illustrations of women who’ve made a historical impact on the world, like Rosa Parks and Lucille Ball.  I’m excited to help my nieces learn about famous women in history so they can grow up to do great things too!

152 Piece Crayola Ultimate Crayon Collection

152 Piece Crayola Ultimate Crayon Collection

Okay. So, you might be able to find the Crayola Ultimate Crayon Collection Art Set on the shelves at Target.  But, a nostalgic classic is always a good option.  And don't you remember growing up and desperately wanting the largest box of crayons?  No?  It was only me? 😂  All of these beautiful colors excites me!  I can't wait to receive art from my nieces!

Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos

Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos

This book is my everything!  "In a place where color ran wild, there lived a girl who was wilder still.  Her name was Swatch, and color was her passion."  If you've been around this blog long enough, you know this resonates with me.  I bought this book last Christmas for my nieces and before wrapping it, I read it and fell in love!  Needless to say, I had to buy a copy for myself.

LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box

LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box

LEGOS are classic for a good reason -- they’re colorful, encourage the imagination, and keep kids busy!  The LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box comes with over 400 pieces in 35 different colors.  I picked these up this year at my local Hallmark because 1) color and 2) there were pink and purple LEGOS!  I almost kept them...almost.

Technicolor Treasure Hunt: Learn to count with nature by Hvass & Hannibal

Technicolor Treasure Hunt: Learn to count with nature by Hvass & Hannibal

When you can make education mesmerizing, you have a winner. The Technicolor Treasure Hunt board book contains 70 first words for a young child to see and say. And it has items from nature that are organized by color for endless learning opportunities.  

Mudpuppy 1,000-Piece Hot Dogs Puzzle

Mudpuppy 1,000-Piece Hot Dogs Puzzle

Another Mudpuppy product, this puzzle isn’t overly challenging, but 1) puppies and 2) 1000 pieces; surely that should keep young kids entertained for more than a minute.  Enough said, right? The breed of each dog represents a different letter of the alphabet, so it’s great for all ages and the entire family.

Fill in the Blank Thank You Notes for Kids

Fill in the Blank Thank You Notes for Kids

Last, but not even close to being least, these Confetti Polka Dot Thank You Cards are PERFECT for teaching children the importance (and art) of writing thank you notes.  They’re fill-in-the-blank which makes it an easy and quick task -- for both of you.  

What do you think? Seeing any gifts that are perfect for the kid(s) in your life?  Or have another gift idea you’d like to share? Tell us in the comments -- but make sure it’s COLORFUL!
