Best DIY Christmas gifts for kids

Making your child’s Christmas magical doesn’t have to mean shelling out your savings. These DIY gifts are perfect for the creative, imaginative kid — and they won’t break the bank:

  • Bath crayons. Use glycerin or regular bar soap to whip up colorful, safe and clean “crayons” that your kids can use during bath time.
  • Handmade doll clothes. Are you handy with a sewing machine? Whip up the cutest clothes and shoes for your kids’ dolls and stuffed animals without spending a fortune.
  • Wooden food. Small blocks of wood with printouts of food labels made for easy DIY fun for creative kids who like to play house or grocery store shopping.
  • Tool belt. Have a little handyman on your hands? Stitch together a tool belt and add a few play tools to complete this fun DIY gift.

Best gifts under $10 for kids

Kids can be challenging to buy for because they often already have so many toys. But if you need a unique present for the mini human in your life, we have some great ideas that will keep things affordable.

1. Remote control toy. Toys that fly, drive or zoom with a remote control are super interactive and fun for kids of all ages. Bonus points if it lights up.

2. Shopkins. This toy is all the rage among little ones these days, and you can pick up a bag for less than ten bucks.

3. Mermaid tail blanket. Perfect for the little mermaid in your life, this cozy and adorable blanket is sure to be a hit.

4. Unicorn earbuds. These playful headphones will be music to any trendy kiddo’s ears.

5. Kinetic sand. A fun gift for crafty kids, this magical sand is super fun to play with and sticks together so you can mold and shape it.
