There’s no doubt that there are some children who are well beyond blessed. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, but there are times that it can create quite the conundrum. I’ve never been in that situation myself, but I know all too well how difficult it is to find good Christmas gifts for kids who have everything. Even if it just seems so.
I wanted to take a moment to let you know that this site uses affiliate links, and this post may include some of those.
Here are just a few suggestions to shop for a child who seems to have it all:
There are many experience gifts that would make a wonderful gift for the child who already has all the material things he or she could dream of.
Here are a few experience gift ideas to consider, depending on your budget and what the child likes:
- Movie theater tickets or gift cards
- Zoo tickets
- Concert tickets
- Live play tickets
- Trip to all-inclusive resort
- Theme park tickets
- Sports game tickets
- Helicopter ride
- Laser tag tickets
- Pre-paid lessons (such as photography, cooking, art, music, pottery, swim, etc.)
2. Activity Kits
Activity kits make a great holiday gift for kids who have everything because they allow them to get creative with some guidance. These kits can expose them to new things they have not tried before, and can sometimes be enjoyed with other family members!
Check out some of these activity kit ideas you could gift:
- Gardening kit
- Handprint/footprint kit
- Butterfly kits with live caterpillars
- Needlepoint kit
- Crochet kit
- Art Kits of all kinds
- Calligraphy kit
- Crystal growing kit
- For Purpose Kids kits (Teaches kids to Do Good, Protect The Environment, Help Animals, etc.)
- Electronics/Engineering kits
- Weaving kit
- Friendship bracelet making kit
- Slime making kit
3. Subscription Boxes
Subscription boxes are similar to magazine subscriptions (which is something else to consider!). Instead of just a magazine, the box comes with several surprise items!
Subscription boxes work well for children for 2 reasons:
- What child doesn’t love to receive mail?
- The boxes contain different items every month which means they get a new surprise every month!
There are several different subscription boxes available depending on your child’s interests. Here are a few that I feel are worth checking out:
- KiwiCo – STEAM activities
- KidStir Cooking
- Little Passports (World culture)
- Amazon Prime Book Box (Get 4 board books for younger kids, or 2 hardcover books for older kids!)
- OwlCrate – exclusive book club for older kids. They’ll get newly released Young Adult fiction books, as well as exclusive collectibles, letters from the author, etc.!
4. Financial Gifts
Financial gifts help children prepare for the future. I think financial gifts belong on this list of things to get kids who already have everything because you can never prepare too much for a child’s future.
Here are some financial gifts to consider:
- Stocks and/or bonds
- Custodial account deposit
- Cash money
- Gift cards for online games they love
- Financial education gifts (depending on age, consider books, games, seminars)
5. Something They Most Likely Don’t Already Have
- A beautiful keepsake box – Your child will love to keep all things special to him or her in this box! The sentimental things they collect will stay with them for life!
- Civics educational books – These books will teach your children about America’s foundation of freedom! They’ll learn plenty about the government and the way it is supposed to operate!
- Personalized Bible – This beautiful keepsake Bible can be personalized for boys and girls. What gift could be more perfect?
- Rock, Mineral & Geode Collection Kit – This activity kit is lots of fun for girls and boys. It’s educational just as much as it is fun.
6. A Unique Way Of Gifting
Something They Want,
Something They Need,
Something To Wear,
Something To Read.
If you’ve never heard that phrase before, the first thing to know is that it is really as simple as it sounds. You would buy something they have already expressed interest in, something they need, clothing/shoes, and a book to read.
This works out well for many families for a variety of reasons. It can help to save money, keep the number of gifts low, avoid clutter, and also as a way to get several gifts for children you’re having trouble deciding what to buy for!
Here are several things to consider so that you can purchase the perfect Christmas gifts for kids who have everything! Which one of these ideas do you like best?
