The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide 2019: Gift Ideas for Kids - Plus, a GIVEAWAY!!

Sunday, November 24, 2019
My Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide is finally here! If you're looking for gift ideas for boys, girls or both, I've got you covered. I organized my ideas into categories: STEM, Building, Books, Dolls, Animals/Plush and so much more! I included handy labeled photos and links to all products. Check it out!

Then, be sure to enter my AMAZON GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY at the end of this post! 

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links to Amazon. I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. Some toys and gift suggestions were sent to me as samples, but I promise you I wouldn't feature items in my guide if I didn't totally love them myself! So rest assured, these items all have The Jersey Momma stamp of approval! 

I designed my Gift Guide for easy reading, but feel free to Pin this image for future use!

How This Gift Guide Works

I thought long and hard about what kind of holiday gift guide would be helpful for people. I know time is precious, so rather than go through a long-winded explanation about each item, I simply included links and photos. I made 9 toy suggestions in 9 different categories (plus one special suggestion at the bottom), and you can use the photos as a key. You can also click on each photo to enlarge it, or screenshot the image to your phone for shopping references. My links lead to Amazon but I wholeheartedly support local business, so if you want to find these toys at your favorite local shop, go for it! For more detailed explanations of some of these toys, please check out my round-up posts from The Toy Insider's Holiday of Play and the TTPM Holiday Showcase. Happy Holidays!
