Christmas is such a fun time for kids! It’s pure magic to see the surprised and delighted look on their faces when they open a present. But I try to make an effort to give things to my kids that are going to be long-lasting and useful.
Each of these gifts for kids that I hand-selected from small businesses are unique, useful and high-quality. I can’t wait to share them with you!
Kids Hammock from Splendipity Hammocks
You really can’t go wrong with a hammock for kids! It’s the perfect place for lounging, reading books, or relaxing. I love Splendipity’s luxurious hammocks that are handmade and heavy-duty. I love this Peaches N’ Cream Hammock that has a beautiful coral color on the outside, minky fabric on the inside, and a fun tassel detail.
We set up our hammock quickly and easily and I’m so impressed with how heavy-duty it is. It’s great for any little corner where you want to add something special.

DUB It Game and MAK Packs from Mindful Art Co
Teaching emotional responsibility and mindfulness to kids can feel like a daunting task. But there are so many benefits, including more self-awareness, responsibility, and methods to self soothe. Mindful Art Co has made it easy and FUN to teach kids about emotions. They’ve create a simple game called DUB It that helps kids identify emotions (similar to the premise of the game Apples to Apples).
Mindful Art Co also has MAK Packs (MAK = Meditation Art Kit) that combine crafting and art with learning emotional responsibility. It includes 4 lessons with stories, crafts, and an audio story to listen to. You can get a physical or digital copy of the MAK Pack and it makes a great experience gift to enjoy with your kids!

Kids Shirts and Felt Pennants from Kind Kids Club
It’s always fun to gift the kids something they can wear. Then when they finally change out of those holiday jammies, they have something new to put on. I love all the t-shirt options from Kind Kids Club. They’re beautifully designed and have a great message as well. All the kids tees come in sizes 3 months – 5T.
I also love the felt pennant trend. They’re easy to hang anywhere in the house and are especially cute in a kids room or play room!

Durable Foam Swords from Formidable Toys
Do you have kids that love to fight? I’m pretty sure my boys could fight with each other for hours on end and when there are nerf guns or play swords, it’s even better.
These AMAZING swords came to be when a father and son drew sketches for swords and decided to make their dreams a reality. It’s almost hard to explain how heavy duty and durable these swords are. They’re foam swords and have a soft tip, to help prevent injuries.
And what makes them even more awesome is that they’re modular! Which means you can take the hilt and crossguard off and mix and match those pieces with other swords. They’re next level play swords that would make such a fun and cherished gift. I got the Eon Arc and the Dragon Iss.

Book of Mormon Card Ring from Kindred Kids
Kindred cards were designed to make “Come, Follow Me” lessons fun and easy for you and your families. Each card will help further your child’s connection with the lesson and motivate them to collect and reflect on all 51.
These would make the sweetest family gift or stocking stuffer. I love the idea of building on concepts you’re learning throughout the year and giving kids a chance to connect the dots in a simple way.

Parent-Child Journals from Loom Journals
I’ve been using this parent-child journal with my older kids for a while and it’s been such a great experience. The Loom Journal is beautiful designed and illustrated. There are prompts in the journal from everything to home life, school, memories, dreams, goals, etc. And there is a page of prompts for the child side-by-side with the same page of prompts for the parent to fill out.
This journal is awesome at fostering connection, especially with kids that don’t love to talk about personal things. It’ll also be such a keepsake to look back on in years to come.

The cards come in a beautiful felt pouch (marker not included) and can be wiped clean to use again and again.
