2019 Gift Guide: Give the gifts of creativity & learning!

We have lots of hands-on gifts that will inspire curiosity & imagination- all of them screen-free! Our top picks are separated by age to make it easier for you to find the perfect gift for that special someone.

Need it now? Our products are sold around the world at major retailers & independent toy and gift stores. Search here for stores near you, but make sure you contact them for product availability if there are specific gifts you’re looking for.

Let their imaginations run wild! Toddlers and preschoolers will love stickering & re-stickering playhouses that go right on the wall. The repositionable static cling stickers let kids express their creativity and push their imaginations to new heights. With three sets to choose from, there’s something for every kid: a Castle, a Playhouse, and a smaller Enchanted Playhouse with mermaids & unicorns. 

For stickering on-the-go, we have a sticker book to empower kids (award-winning Girl Power Story sticker book) and a Sticker Puzzle to help develop their problem-solving skills.

 


As kids get older, get gifts that encourage their interests in the world around them & nurture their creativity and imagination. Many children love animals, and we have kits that would make great gifts! Stacked String Art Babies and Koalas allow younger children to make string art with no pins. They just wrap, stack, and display their colorful creations!

Make a Fox Friend allows kids to stitch up a new stuffie in minutes, then play for hours! The kit comes with pre-made accessories and a take-along tote for easy storage. Ferocious Pom Creatures are pre-sewn, allowing kids to do the fun part (covering them in pom poms!) If your child is always inventing new animals, the DYO Animal Necklaces kit allows them to stack designs to create 7 unique animal necklaces. Pieces are interchangeable and can be reused over and over!

If the child you're buying for has a big imagination, nurture their creativity with gifts that let them explore the world around them in a new way. The Fairy Potions kit lets kids mix up some magic, while the “I Love Rainbows” kit makes 6 crafts with lots of color. If they’re into mythical creatures, pre-sewn Mythical Pom Animals and Stacked String Art Unicorns will be their new favorites! DIY Sparkle Bracelets also have lots of magical creatures for kids to love, and the kit makes 4 bracelets to keep little hands busy. Our Magical Adventures require a little help from a parent, but the outcome is magical: memories they will treasure forever.

For kids that love learning, our DIY Puffy Charms kit, Puffy Charm Palooza, and Flower Necklaces kits will teach them new jewelry techniques.

 

Hands-on kits for pre-teens and tweens will encourage thinking and creativity. Our award-winning string art kits are always a hit with 10-12 year-olds! Our favorites this year are the Yeti, Pandacorn, Llama, and Unicorn String Art. Each makes two 8.5” canvases that kids will be proud to display when they’re done. Mini Heart Bowls and Iridescent Bowls are made from just glitter and glue, but they sparkle like they’re made from diamonds!

The Yarn Llama and 18" tall Yarn Tree make a nice scene on a dresser, and tweens can also use the tree to hang their jewelry. Speaking of jewelry, the Loopdedoo friendship bracelet maker has been a best-seller ever since we introduced it 8 years ago. Friendship bracelets are trendy again, and with Loopdedoo, kids can make bracelets in minutes!

 

Whether you need a stocking stuffer or you’re just looking for a little project to keep them occupied, our little craft kits are a good bet. From jewelry (the Angel and Unicorn necklaces) to décor (the Sun Catcher and Mini Dreamcatchers) we have something for everyone! Older kids will appreciate the Taco Cord Holder. It will keep their earbuds organized when they’re on the go. Mini Heart Bowls, made from just glitter and glue, are another fun project that comes in a smaller package.

 

 

Teens & adults need screen-free time too, and we have kits that can help! Our Mini Terrariums and Felt Succulent kits make great gifts for plant parents. Even if they can’t keep a real plant alive, they’ll have no trouble creating pretty succulents that don’t need water. The DYO Flower Art kit is another great choice. It makes a dimensional, beautiful framed canvas that is bloomin’ beautiful!

If you have a lot of “makers” on your list, you can’t go wrong with the Loopdeloom. It’s a patented weaving loom that is easier than knitting or crochet. Our Blush and Neutral bracelet boxes will teach them new jewelry-making techniques and produce a pretty stack of bracelets that can be worn together or separately.
