Gift Ideas For Kids By Age Ranges

Before I had kids, I never knew what to get kids for Christmas and Birthdays. I never knew what would be too “old” or too “young” or just not cool at all. I lived by the age range on the package. But as my own kids get older, I am realizing that those age ranges leave a lot to be desired. They’re not always accurate and it’s so confusing.

If you’re a parent or relative to young children, then you’ve got birthdays to attend. For me, it’s almost every weekend these days! Finding the appropriate gift can be time-consuming, and a bit stressful- whether it’s coming directly from you or from your child to their pal.

Never fear! I created a gift guide so you can focus on enjoying time with loved ones (and getting on with your day!) rather than hemming and hawing at all of the options. Hopefully the age ranges here can help you figure out what gifts would be most appropriate!

For a little more “pearity,” pair with two more pears!

With a baby monitor, you can use your time flexibly, sleep peacefully at night and still know at all times that your baby is doing well.

A good breastfeeding pillow has several advantages, because it helps you not only to breastfeed, but also to fall asleep and is also suitable as a nest.

Diaper bags

A diaper bag offers you a lot of storage space, so that you have everything you need for your baby on the go - from the changing pad to the bottle.

Pucksack

A pucksack gives your baby the feeling of security, like in the womb, and thus supports a peaceful and restful sleep.

Bicycle trailers can be used in combination with a baby seat shortly after birth. They are not only safer than child seats but also more comfortable.
