There are so many times where I really try my best to plan ahead and stock up on presents for kids at a great deal. But, life happens and I fall short. I want to make it easy for you and provide a list of great gifts for kids under $25. (in full disclosure, the pricing at the time of this post was under $25. Prices might fluctuate a bit if you’re reading this later) I’ll be separating it from ages birth – 6 months, 6 months -18 months, and 2-4 years old. Would love for you to comment with some of your favorite gifts as well!
Gifts for kids birth-6 months of age
1. Vtech Move & Crawl Baby Ball – This ball has been such a favorite for Ryan and even my niece that is not crawling yet. They love to laugh and giggle at the ball as it wiggles and moves all over our carpet.
2. Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes – This little guy is perfect for little hands and also great to keep their attention during diaper changes! (ask me how I know). Because of the low price, it’s best to add a few Baby Einstein products to make one larger gift.
3. Baby Einstein Bendy Ball – The soft plastic is great for teething and little hands can easily grasp and move it around.
4. Baby Einstein Explore & Discover Soft Book – Crinkle pages are a must for little curious babies.
5. Ribbon Tag Ball- Red, White & Black – the colors and designs are great for tiny babies as their vision focuses on the stark contrast.
Gifts for kids 6 months – 18 months of age
1. Vtech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker – This is great for pre-walkers and those babies learning to walk. The front entertainment area is removable to place on the floor for sitting babies to play with. You can also adjust the wheel tension to allow for a slower roll for those beginning to learn to walk.
2. Vtech Sort & Discover Activity Cube – wonderful colors, things to turn and pages to read. So much to entertain little ones and easy to wipe clean! That is probably the best part of the entire gift 🙂
3. Little Tikes Discover Sounds Kitchen – Perfect size for those little ones to sit and play – open the oven and fridge over and over. They will love the music and sounds offered.
4. Vtech Turn and Learn Driver – What is more fun than pretending you’re a race car driver! Turn the wheel and hear different animal sounds and beep the horn.
5. Little People Lil’ Movers Baby School Bus – Almost every line of Little People trucks & automobiles are a favorite in our home. They play music as they’re pushed along and also when you press the people or animals down in seats!
Gifts for kids 2-4 years of age
1. Play-Doh Fun Tub – Yes, we have a love/hate relationship with Play-Doh in our home. But there’s no denying the imagination and attention it keeps over the kids. For younger ones, best with parent supervision to prevent ingesting.
2. Dabber Dot Markers & Activity Set – Creating art becomes a focal point for kids as they grow older. The Dabber Dot markers allow for ease to create different art by stamping all over paper. You can also add on activity books that are created specifically for dot markers.
3. Vtech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set – Music is an important development to learn rhythm, and beat. The drum set is durable and can be used with or without the drumsticks.
4. Little People Magic of Disney – Mickey & Minnie’s House Playset – Easy to take on the go as well as set up at home. So many great sounds offered with the moving parts and you can add on additional Disney characters to play with.
5. Vtech Lil’ Speller Phonics Station – Help little ones identify letters, and learn sounds as they can spell sight words and prepare them for preschool!
