The BEST Gift Ideas for Kids 5 and under - great ideas for Christmas or even birthdays, and all are on Amazon!

In the past, I’ve always thought that buying gifts for kids was pretty easy. I’m trying to figure out why I don’t feel that way so much now. Maybe it’s because my kids all have different interests and it’s hard to remember who likes what. Maybe it’s because there are just SOOO many different toys to buy and it’s hard to narrow it down to one. Maybe it’s because I’m a lot more picky in the toys that they get because I don’t like ones with too many small pieces or glitter. 😉

In case you are like me, it’s nice to have a list of the Best Gifts for Kids 5 and under that can all be found on Amazon. They range in price but none are too expensive and all would make great birthday and Christmas gifts. I had my 2 youngest go through some toy magazines and these are some of their favorites. I also picked these based off of Amazon reviews and how popular they were. I’m thinking any of them will be a hit, and I hope this list helps you save some time this holiday season. I also love hearing any suggestions you have so we can add it to the list next year, so be sure to leave a comment below if you other great gift ideas for young kids. 😉

  1. Hello Kristyn, I read your blog and I liked it. You share the requirement of toys for the children below the age of 5 year. That is so confusing, because we can’t get what children wants. Your blog is helpful for us. Thanks!

  2. Some fab suggestions here. Love the idea of giving Thomas the Train Bike and Track as its fun. Always a good idea to get your gifts sorted early.
