Gifts for Teens

Do you have a teen on your gift list this year? Teens are not the easiest creatures to please. They aren’t quite adults and they are no longer children. This makes gift-giving times extraordinarily difficult if you are trying to be creative.

Educational Gifts for Kids

Give the kids the gift of learning something new this year! We have a huge list of educational gift ideas for every kid! Here are educational gift ideas from our readers and from us!

Practical Gifts for Kids

Need some great gift ideas for practical gifts your kids will love? When you just can’t load your house up with any more legos, stuffed animals or toy cars, try these fun but practical gifts kids will love.

Board Games for Every Age

Board games are great for family night, spending time with the kids, and a good no-screen alternative. We love them for their brain-engaging strategy, educational value, teamwork, or just light-hearted fun with the kids. Check out our list of great board games for the whole family.

Teacher Gifts: Dos and Don’ts

Wondering what to give your child’s teacher? You’re thankful for them. They do amazing things with a room full of kids every single day. You love those teachers, and maybe it just seems like the usual “#1 Teacher Coffee Mug” is not going to cut it this year. Not to worry. We’ve got some great ideas and a few Dos and Don’ts for thinking about teacher gifts.

Start a Book Gift Tradition

Do the book gifts get a little buried in the toy excitement at your house on Christmas morning? We love this idea from KAG Contributor Lacey Keigley. Her family has a tradition that not only sets the book gifts aside as something extra special, but also gives the grown-ups a few calm moments before the boisterous sprint to the Christmas tree. Check it out and maybe you’ll start a new family tradition this year.
