The kiddos on your holiday shopping list are always the most important people on your list. I have some unique kid’s gifts that you must add to your holiday shopping list this year. It is the happiest shopping time of the year!!
Unique Kid’s Gifts To Add To Your List
I love holiday shopping. In fact, I already started my shopping for the year. There is something so fun about shopping for your friends and family during this time of the year. It gives me pride and excitement as I wait for those recipients to open their gifts on that special day. I love seeing the joy. Truly the best feeling during the busiest time of the year. As a list maker, my holiday shopping list has been drawn out for a few weeks now and I am slowly checking items off my list.
It is true that some of the most important people on your holiday shopping list are usually the kids. This is the most magical time of the year for these little ones and providing them with great, unique gifts they will love is super important. No more worrying, I have some great options to share with you this holiday season!
Build-A-Bear: A Sparkly Friend
Both of my kids LOVE Build-A-Bear, anytime we go to the mall the question is “can we visit Build-A-Bear?” Random cute fact about Teagan, when she was younger she would call this store “Stuff-A-Bear” – adorable!! That being said, we have a lot of Build-A-Bear friends, Teagan might have a bit of an obsession with stuffed animals. I honestly do not know how she has room to sleep in her bed with all of these special stuffed animal friends but she is continually asking for more because she loves them so much.
What Is A Pink Sparkle Llamacorn?
Llamacorns are magical creatures that are found far up north in the enchanted North Pole forest. With super fuzzy fleece, glittery gold hooves and a matching unicorn horn, Pink Sparkle Llamacorn is as one-of-a-kind as they come! This friendly llamacorn plush is perfect for anyone with a big imagination. Make your llamacorn stuffed animal even more unique by adding its own outfits, sounds, scents and accessories!
This Llamacorn gift set is perfect for my sparkle, unicorn, llama, stuffed animal loving little lady. Deck the halls with this festive ornament outfit for your furry friend! This two-piece set includes a blue sequin dress with a fun ornament skirt and gold star on the neckline. The matching bow completes the look! Give your llamacorn’s paws the perfect amount of flair! Specially made to fit the paws of furry friends,
these Blue Sequin Flats are great for adding sparkle to any outfit.

American Girl: Meet Julie
I remember being a little girl and marking up the latest American Girl Catalogue with all of the dolls and accessories I wanted for my birthday or Christmas. While American Girl is still around, they are much bigger with so many more doll and accessory items. Teagan loves these 18 inch dolls and I love giving them to her because there is some sort of nostalgic feeling surrounding the American Girl brand for me. A special bond between Teagan and I as I get just as excited to play with these beautiful dolls.
Optimistic Julie Albright™ has warm, lifelike brown eyes that open and close smoothly, and realistic long, straight blond hair styled with a tiny braid at the side. She comes in an authentic 1970s-style outfit that includes; a lemon-yellow crocheted vest, a tank top with a groovy peace-sign graphic, bell-bottom jeans with funky floral insets on each leg, platform sandals and underwear. The 18″ Julie™ doll has a soft cotton body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. Includes the paperback book The Big Break, the first book of Julie’s stories, abridged and richly illustrated in full color.
I was so excited when I saw Julie and her accessories. I know Teagan will LOVE her hair and clothing, such a fun doll with a great style. Teagan has shown an interest in a lot of the 70’s Flower Power fashion so this is a perfect doll for her to learn about and connect with.
Other American Girl Accessories For Julie:
Julie Pinball Machine: Pinball arcades were incredibly popular in the ’70s, and Julie loves to try to beat the high score! The Flip Side pinball machine works just like a real one, with flashing lights, a digital scorekeeper, a plunger to launch the metal ball, buttons to control the flipper arms on either side, bumpers, and realistic machine sounds. It’s made of real metal and wood.
I cannot wait for Teagan to open this on Christmas morning. It is going to be a BIG hit. I love that she will actually be able to play with it because it is a real one, just doll sized.
Julie Christmas Outfit for Dolls: Christmas holds a special place in Julie’s heart. Whether she’s making holiday crafts with her mom or visiting the Fairmont Hotel to get hot chocolate with her dad and her sister, Tracy, she loves to dress up for the occasion. The outfit set includes the following; an authentic ’70s-style pink velvet dress with rickrack and crochet trim, a mock turtleneck, and balloon sleeves that make Julie feel fancy, a black satin bow for her hair, a pair of opaque white tights to keep her legs warm, a pair of black patent Mary Jane shoes with real metal buckles.
Such a perfect outfit for any little girl for a special holiday dinner. It will be fun to see Teagan dress up for Christmas dinner and get Julie all dressed up too!
Julie Christmas Fireplace: There’s no fireplace for Santa to come down to in the new apartment that Julie moves to after her parents’ divorce, so her mom gets a faux fireplace instead! This set includes the following; a traditional printed cardboard fireplace, including a faux fire and hooks on the mantle to hang stockings, a hand-painted real ceramic Christmas tree that really lights up! Two red felt stockings with Julie’s name embroidered on the front of one and her sister Tracy’s on the other, a real ceramic plate with a printed holly decoration to hold two gingerbread cookies for Santa to munch on, a glass of milk for Santa to drink, a note card to place by the milk and cookies for Santa, and a letter to Santa from Julie with her Christmas list. Plus two Christmas cards, one from Julie’s best friend, Ivy, and the other from Julie’s aunt.
I think what I love most about this set is the hand-painted real ceramic Christmas tree that really lights up, my grandma had one of these trees and I purchased one a few years ago for our house. So special and so many holiday memories.
Justice: A Girls Dream Wardrobe
Justice is one of Teagan’s very favorite stores to shop at. I love getting her gift cards for her to do her shopping (it makes her feel so grown up and special) but unwrapping a gift card isn’t that fun on Christmas morning. So I always find a cute item to add to the box with the gift card. This super soft and trendy striped sweater knit beanie is the perfect item to add to my gift card gift box.
This beanie is snuggly soft sweater knit and snug band keep her cozy all snow-day long. Plus the little sparkle in the knit makes it perfect for Teagan’s style…sparkles everywhere! The large fluffy pompom on top invites a too cute flair which is exactly what my little lady loves to add to her outfits, even when it is snowy and cold out. This is kid friendly as it is polyester, can be hand washed in cold water and imported.
Add this winter ready item to your list as a fun stocking stuffer or item to add to a gift card for Justice. Another fun way to add some uniqueness to your holiday gifts this year.
Jakks Toys: Stinkin’ Cute Treats
How many of your kids love that poop emoji? Yeah, mine too. Jakks Toys knows how to make little girls get creative and have a little chocolate treat with this silly Chocolate Poop Maker. Kids can make their own adorable chocolate poops by melting the chocolate, “flushing”
it down the toilet, pouring the chocolate into the molds, refrigerate for five minutes, and adding their own cute poo-tastic touches! This kit includes; one reusable toilet, one chocolate poop mold with cute faces, one packet of brown chocolate, one toilet plunger, and one reusable chocolate dispenser. This kit can be used with chocolate from home as well.
Look, as an adult I look at this and laugh and wonder who would want to buy this kit and then Teagan’s face pops up in my mind. Teagan would want to buy this!! HA! I cannot wait to see how she reacts when she opens this gift. This time of the year it is fun to step outside of the normal and let kids be kids and this silly Chocolate Poop Maker is the perfect gift just for that reason!
Jakks Toys: Hello Giganto!
Sometimes there are kiddos on your list that you aren’t too sure about what to get them. Jakks Toys helps with those situations by creating toys like Giganto. This Gigantosaurus Giganto figure will have kids excited to play. Kids will love making Gigantosaurus stomp and roar! At the push of a button, kids can make Gigantosaurus’s mouth open and close and make roaring sounds plus they can make Gigantosaurus stomp to hear real stomping sounds. This figure has six points of articulation: legs, arms, tail, and mouth and is approximately 15-inches long and 8-inches tall. Inspired by Gigantosaurus™, one of the top animated programs for preschoolers ages 3-6!
Candlewick Press: A Book For Leaders
I love giving books for gifts. Not only do I do this for my own kids but I do this for when I am shopping for friends and family as well. Over the years I have made sure to provide both Jude and Teagan with books that talk about good, strong leaders in our world. I love that there are so many books available like this now and even though the kids might not get too excited to unwrap a book on Christmas morning, days, weeks, months later I see them reading and enjoying the books and that makes it so worth it.
This year I will be adding Leading the Way: Women in Power book to Teagan’s gifts. This is a beautifully illustrated and written book about present and historical women in politics.
Leading the Way: Women in Power
An accessible and engaging collection of biographies, spotlighting the careers of fifty American women in politics — and inspiring readers to make a difference. With a foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Leading the Way: Women in Power highlights the actions, struggles, or accomplishments of more than 50 of the most influential women in American history, balanced between Democrats and Republicans and featuring women from a widely diverse variety of backgrounds who have stood up, blazed trails, and led the way. A timely reminder of the female political giants of the past in a year where female candidates from diverse backgrounds, are breaking records across the country.
What I love about this book is that it shows women in powerful roles doing great work but focuses on women’s achievements and major areas of interest rather than political lean or party affiliation. I want my kids to learn about how important it is to have women in these positions and work on bringing more diversity and women leadership into these roles.
Well there you have it! Have I inspired you to get going on that holiday shopping list? I hope that you will consider adding many of these items to your shopping lists as they are great for so many ages and interests.
