Small Business Favorites
We love our Yoto Player! Yoto devices have no screen, no camera, no microphone, and no ads. That means kids are free to explore safe and family-friendly audio. The special discount below will get you 10% OFF an order of $69 or more until January 1st!
Brooke Romney’s newest books 52 Modern Manners for Todays Teens, Volumes 1 & 2, are such an easy and impactful way to bring up critical topics for teens today.
Our kids and teens love to flip the pages and share the tips with the entire family.
Kiwi Crates captured our attention years ago and they just keep getting better! There is something for every type of child and interest.
We’ve tried the majority of the crates and loved them all. We’re currently subscribed to the Tinker Crate and Kiwi Crate! Discounts vary throughout the year, but use the link below for a discount anytime.
Spark Creativity & Imagination
This is one of the few items we’re repeating from a previous gift guide because it’s so popular! It’s $6 well spent. Our kids have created the most bizarre and silly comics in their books!
Stay in Touch with Nature & the Outdoors
Our son LOVES plants. We love starter kits because you get everything you need, but you can also make a trip to your local garden store for some seeds and seed starting soil, too!
Hammocks are seriously fun for ALL ages. We love our Honest Outfitters double size hammocks, but it looks like they are out of stock. We found some that look comparable and linked them below!
Reading lights are a rite of passage in our home. It’s beautiful to watch books become your kids friends and then watch kids become teens who turn to a book in the bedroom (no screens there!). Side note: we’ve learned that rechargeable book lights save on batteries. 😉
Brandon Mull’s books are perfect for the fantasy fans! Our son has read many of his books, but the Fablehaven series continues to be a favorite. Great book set for an 8-10 year old boy.
Stretch Your Brain with STEM
Who knew that science could be fun? Theodore Gray—that’s who! These books provide a fascinating and entertaining insight into the fundamental building blocks of our universe that’s enjoyable for anyone age 8 and up!
Model rockets provide a great mix of satisfaction from both the creative challenge of building the rocket, to the excitement of watching it soar into the sky. This kit includes everything needed to get started with your own personal journey to Mars!
Wooden models like this one take the glue-free simplicity of a jigsaw puzzle, and add the complexity of motion and three dimensions. Guaranteed to keep your creative child or spouse entertained for multiple days while building construction skills!
Looking closer at the night sky is a real eye opener. The moon, Saturn, and Jupiter are enjoyable to view with a basic telescope like this one. We’ve bonded together in the backyard on many a summer nights!
Make Some Music
Sometimes you want to share your amazing drum beats with the family. Or have someone join in on the action with another instrument. This amp accepts two sound sources, and has plenty of volume.
