Gift Ideas for Children under 5 years old

Holiday Gift Guide: Great Gifts for Children Under 5 years old. This gift guide includes many quiet toys that encourage pretend play and teach children new skills.

Buying for kids is so much fun. Today I wanted to take you through some of our all time favorite gifts- or gifts that are on my sons’ wishlists. My boys are 2 years old and 4 years old… some of these toys are intended for older children, but we keep those toys on a high shelf and take them down for supervised play. My sons really love STEM and science type toys. I also love to buy them any pretend play items- pretend play is a really important skill for them to develop.
