’Tis the season for giving gifts kids will love for a long time. Whether you need help picking out cool gifts for your little ones or other special kids in your life, we got you covered. Little and big kids can be picky at times since they’re constantly growing. But don’t fret. If you buy comfortable and practical gifts for them—in addition to all the fun toys and tech they’ll be getting—they’ll appreciate your effort. Follow the suggestions below, and they’ll certainly have a smile on their face upon unwrapping their gifts on Christmas morning.
Cozy, high-quality clothes are reliable, practical, and stylish gifts for kids of all ages. However, make sure you pick the perfect styles for them since kids can be a bit picky when it comes to the clothes they wear to school and beyond. Also, before making a purchase, make sure you choose the correct size. Nothing says stylish like perfectly fitted apparel.
After determining kids’ tastes (favorite colors, silhouettes, styles, designs, patterns, and features) and the proper size, it’s time to do some holiday shopping. First, start with comfy apparel for colder months, especially versatile clothes they can wear not only to school but also elsewhere. Jackets, vests, coats for boys, and coats for girls come in various designs, so take the time to pick out a few to keep them nice and toasty on frigid days. Fleece jackets, available in all the colors kids could want, look sleek and cool for stylish little ones.
Or for warmth without the bulk, lightweight down jackets provide ideal insulation for chilly conditions, and packable down jackets are perfect for adventurous camping trips with the fam. Hybrid reversible puffer jackets with a fleece interior give them two styles in one: a total win! For active kids, invest in their interests by purchasing a snow or ski jacket. They’ll then know how much you care about their hobbies.
Nothing beats a well-made, comfy knit sweater. Super-soft cotton and cashmere boys’ sweaters and girls’ sweaters (like pullovers, cardigans, and knit vests) get them through winter school days in casual comfort. They’ll love sweaters with their favorite colors and patterns. Talking about comfortable essentials, perhaps invest in quality pajamas for kids. And with essentials like flannel blankets and fleece throws, they’ll have sweeter dreams.
Don’t be tied down to only purchasing cold-weather–appropriate clothes for kids. Pick out some cool graphic t-shirts they can wear alone during sunnier conditions or layer under cardigans and fleece jackets. And for resort getaways, they’ll love fashionable swimwear. Rash guards and cover-ups give them additional protection from the sun as they build sandcastles on the beach.
Kids love their denim, and who can blame them? Cop a few denim shorts and jeans for denim-crazy kids. Don’t stop with blue—denim comes in various colors. As for other bottom styles, leggings are a must for stylish kids who long for comfort. Striped or solid, leggings offer an extra dose of warmth in the winter, but kids can wear them alone once the weather heats up again.
For more formal occasions, place under the Christmas tree cute dresses for girls and dress shirts for boys. And for more casual days, wrap a few kids’ hoodies and sweatshirts. Kids like to wear cozy layers like hoodies and sweatshirts throughout the year, especially if their classrooms are a bit on the cold side.
Chic kids' accessories can make an outfit even more stylish. For cold conditions, stuff their stockings with pom hats, trapper hats, beanies, mittens, gloves, fleece headbands, earmuffs, and scarves. For any day, they’ll love comfy socks and underwear.
Don’t forget their little feet! Kids’ winter boots will provide comfort at every stride, and footwear with fur lets them rock a luxe look. Durable snow boots for boys and girls keep their feet protected on heavy snow days and are available in bright, fun colors kids will love. For rainy days, buy polka dot, animal, stripe, or other cool graphic rain boots. Splashing in puddles just got more fun!
Let them hang out in comfort with cool gifts and stocking stuffers. Bright-colored bean bags for kids will fit perfectly in their playroom, allowing them to play their video games in comfort. And sherpa-lined kids’ slippers with a matching robe will let them kick back in comfort at home. And for a fun surprise, buy matching family pajamas for the entire tribe so you can snap a few photos Christmas morning.
Shopping for kids during the holiday season doesn’t have to be a headache. If you purchase practical, comfy gifts and stocking stuffers they’ll love, Christmas this year will surely be a success.
