If you take a peek at your child’s holiday wishlist, you are likely to find some of these popular gift ideas for kids.

You will find some gifts are traditional, whereas others are trendy gifts for kids.

To help you find all the right gifts for your kids, this gift guide has 5 lists, including gender-neutral gifts for kids, popular toys for girls, popular toys for boys, ideas for crafty kids, and subscription boxes for kids. 

I hope you have as much fun looking through the lists as I did creating them.


Some of my favorite childhood memories are the days when the toy catalogs would arrive in the mail. 

I would sit for HOURS circling what I wanted for Christmas and my birthday. Now, as an adult, I was more than thrilled to look through the catalogs again, and come up with this list of gifts for kids ages 4-10.

Popular Toys for Girls

Popular Toys for Boys

Because I am a mom of two girls, I had to do a little more homework when creating this list of popular toys for boys. 

I follow the Amazon hot toy list, watch as boys beg their parents for toys in the store, asked the parents and teachers in my Teachers on a Budget FB group, and called upon some dear friends who are boy moms to help out with this list. 

Thank you for all your help!
