If you’re like me, the holidays most often leave me at a loss as to what to gift my kids. So many toys have come and gone through our house, often getting discarded a few hours after the wrapping paper comes off. This year, I’m on the search for gifts that my kids will actually love and use. My search has led me to some of the best, through other parent recommendations, from my own experience being a mom of four—these are gifts that your kids will love!

Best of the Best Gifts for Kids, Tweens, and Teens
1. Cozy Coupe
Probably one of the greatest and most played-with toys we’ve ever owned. Every single family should have a Cozy Coupe. I can’t tell you how many photos I have of my kids in their Cozy Coupe—I can look back and literally see them grow up with this beloved toy.
Give a super unique gift and inspire a love for reading at the same time with a subscription of Highlights Magazines. Each month your child or grandchild will get a fun surprise in the mail—it’s the gift that keeps giving all year! I got these as a kid and couldn’t wait every month for the new Highlights to come.
3. Under Armour Faves
My kids adore Under Armour and since they are so active in sports, I love giving them athletic clothes that actually last. Check out these great holiday Under Armour promos going on for a great deal. Plus use the code ARMOUR30 to get $30 off $100 in the Under Armour Outlet.
4. Kiwi Crate
This is another fun gift that keeps giving, rather than a one-time open and done. Kiwi Crate delivers cool science and art projects (which kids love!) for all ages to you each month. It’s a great way to engage your kids creatively. Save 30% off your first month with the code Share30.
5. Toys That Ignite Baby’s Curiosity
I was gifted a Baby Einstein activity table for my very first baby shower and that is the ONE toy that all four of my babies have loved. It’s always hard to know what to get baby for Christmas, but you can’t go wrong with this. You can find the Baby Einstein Curiosity Activity table on Amazon or here at Walmart.
6. Flip Sequins
These are all the rage with kids right now! Check out the adorable flip sequins sweatshirts, shirts, and even pants at Abercrombie Kids that are on sale right now!
There are jammies and then there are CUTE jammies and these personalized Mermaid Dreams Pjs from Chasing Fireflies take the cake! Check out the adorable personalized holiday pj’s along with their great clearance section. Jammies are a must in our house on Christmas Eve.
Through November 19th, use the code CF57400 to get 25% off your ENTIRE order.
8. The Best, Most Affordable Smartphone
If your tween or teen is ready for his or her own smartphone, check out the new Alcatel 7 smartphone that is perfect as a first phone and it is soooo affordable! Seriously, check out the price… no need to stress what your kids will do to it.
The Alcatel 7 is packed with features usually available only on smartphones that cost hundreds of dollars more, including dual rear cameras with portrait mode, face unlock technology and fingerprint sensor. The battery handles up to 28 hours of talk time in a single charge.
Now that is the stocking stuffer that they will really go crazy over.
9. Join the Pickleball Craze
Unless you’ve been living in the dark for a while now, you’ve probably noticed that people everywhere are going gaga over pickleball. And it’s no wonder…this fun and competitive game can be played at any age and is an addictive combination of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton.
Get your crew set up with a pickleball starter kit this season. It’s a great sport to play indoors! You can find pickleball essentials and all kinds of fun sporting goods at Holabird Sports.
10. Just for Funsie Onesie
Another hot ticket item this year is the ever eyebrow raising onesie. Cooky as they are, kids absolutely LOVE them. My 9-year-old adores this one. More fun styles here!
