Gift Guides by Interest
Welcome to Kid Gift Guides!
Here at KGG, we make buying gifts for children and teens simple, streamlined, and sanity-saving.
Our carefully curated lists are:
Organized by interest. If you know lil’ Jordan loves Pokemon or Jessica loves science, you can head straight for the lists that match a kid’s interests.
Filtered for quality. We only include top-rated items. We also run each gift idea through our “real kid filter,” and if we don’t hear an “Ooooh, I’d want that!” or “That’s so cool!” it doesn’t make our list.
Conscious of budget. Everyone’s budget is different, so for our main lists we try to keep most gifts between $5 and $30, with one or two up to $50. (Prices change all the time, so no guarantees, but we do our best.) For those who know they want to spend over $50, we also include Bonus Power Gifter ideas at the end of each list.
Our goal at KGG is to save you time, perhaps some money, and definitely some valuable brain space.
We make kid gift shopping easy. No guesswork. No duds.
