The following are five of our top favorite gifts for kids.

  1. Fan Favorite – We polled our readers and the LEGO Classic Creative Brick Box received the most votes. If you have a Lego fan in your life, it can be tricky to pick out the coolest set that they don’t already own. You can’t go wrong with this Creative Box with 33 different colored bricks. It also includes the staples – doors, windows, and wheels – everything your kid needs to make winter break fly by!
  2. Scottsdale Moms Blog Writers’ Favorite – We polled our writers and the Crayola Art Set received the most votes. This handy case includes 64 fun colored crayons, 40 washable markers, 20 colored pencils, and even paper. If you have a little artist at your house, this will occupy them for hours.
  3. Perfect for Any Kid – A few summers ago, we went to Hamleys toy store in London. My daughter was absolutely fascinated by the color changing markers they demonstrated. While my husband and I weren’t sure if the price tag was worth it, we ended up buying them at the Hamleys shop in the airport. Our doubts disappeared as our daughter spent the nine hour flight home coloring with them the entire time! Color changing markers are fun and open up a whole new world of creativity!
  4. Best Splurge Gift  – The Fire HD 10 is definitely a splurge, but it comes with access to over 20,000 games, apps, videos, books, and more! Check out their worry-free guarantee if you’re nervous about giving an expensive piece of technology to your child.
  5. Best Gift Under $10  – Whether you’re spending winter break at home or traveling across the country, Uno is fun for all ages. (Amazon prices may vary by the minute)
