Kids can sometimes be a little difficult to shop, especially during the holidays.

What if they don’t like it?

Trust me, they like just about anything. And even if they don’t, they’ll tire of playing with it a few weeks or months later; so don’t overthink it.

Here are 20 more gifts for kids, some of which have been a hit in my home.

1. Disney Geode Kit National Geographic – We got this for Olivia last year and she had a blast smashing the geodes to see what was inside. She has them displayed on her nightstand. This is a great gift for curious little minds who enjoy science.

2. Skip Hop SKIP*HOP& Moonlight & Melodies Owl Nightlight Soother – this was a gift for Ava on her first Christmas. I’ve also shared it before because it’s such a great nightlight and soother. It has multiple white & natural noise settings and I really like that it has a light projector that shines constellations on the ceiling.

3. Baby Einstein Take-Along Tunes – We gifted Olivia this on her first Christmas and it was a hit well into her turning 4 years old. The music is entertaining for babies & toddlers and will keep them entertained.

4. Tiny Love Into the Forest Gymini Deluxe – for parents with newborns in the house, these play gyms are great for entertaining babies and also give mom & dad a break from holding duty.

5. Lego LEGO Super Heroes Batmobile Pursuit of The Joker Set – OK, I know, Lego’s can be a hassle to clean up, but there’s no denying that they are wonderful for imagination play and development. This superhero set is sure to be a hit with you little DC fan.

6. Melissa and Doug Kids Toy, Play Money Set – I absolutely love anything Melissa & Doug because their toys are educational and serve a function. This play money set is great for 4 and 5-year-old kids who are learning about counting money and identifying currency.

7. Melissa and Doug Kids Toy, Lacing Shoe Educational Toy – Another great find — this lacing shoe toy helps young kids practice in a fun way! I mean, it’s a big shoe! Not to mention when kids finally master shoe-tying it’s a great accomplishment for them and gives them a sense of independence.

8. Pottery Barn Kids My First Ivory Bear Anywhere Chair – I had a really good friend gift Olivia one of these Pottery Barn chairs for her first birthday and it was a hit! She finally had her little spot that was just her size. Ava has now taken claim — never mind the embroidered OLIVIA on the backrest. I love this gift because you can personalize it with their name stitched right on.

9. Generation Dolls– If you’re looking for a more affordable All American Doll, Target has you covered. These dolls are super cute and come in an array of professions and dress-ups. They are also about a third of the price!

10. Girls Dress up Costume Set – Kids go crazy for dress up and I don’t blame them. How fun to be able to dress up like a princess or fairy? Pretending is a great learning characteristic and it allows kids to use their imagination.

11. Lite-Brite Ultimate Value Retro Toy – Olivia got her first Lite-Brite for her birthday last year and it brought me so much joy to see her playing with a toy I played with when I was younger. Lite-Brite is great for hand-eye coordination (Ava’s been into it lately) and also color differentiation.

12. Jay Franco Comics Avengers Good Guys 4 Piece Twin Bed Set- for your Avengers fan, a new set of sheets will sure light up their eyes. These are just too cute and they will love jumping into bed with their favorite characters.

13. Skip Hop Explore and More Baby’s View 3-Stage Interactive Activity Center – Another gift we got Ava on her first birthday. She was around 6 months old and loved to sit there and play with the different stations. There’s also a small piano at her feet for her to make sweet music.

14. Crazy Forts – Because what kids don’t like to build a fort? This toy keeps your furniture free and clear and they can get as creative as they want. Just drape a sheet when they’re done and you are a champ mom!

15. Retrospec Cub Kids Balance Bike No Pedal Bicycle – Both girls started on a no-pedal bike and have done great. Both girls have now upgraded to big-girl bikes but these were great for starters.

16. 101 Piece Deluxe Easel Art Set – For the artist in your life, how about this easel and color set to let their imagination soar? They’ll love having an array of art supplies at their fingertips and their own easel to create.

17. Water Doodle Mat – Save the wall and furniture and get them this mat! The special markers only write on the mat and will be entertained for hours. It’s also large enough to keep a couple of kids busy & amused.

18. LeapFrog Learning Friends 100 Words Book – toddlers will love getting to use this LeapFrog book. Expose them to words in a fun and educational way.

19. dreambuilderToy Magnetic Tiles Building Blocks Toys 40 PCS – These get constant play at my house. The girls love making their own little homes and towns – entertainment for hours.

20. L.O.L. Surprise! Bubble Surprise Deluxe – If it’s one thing my kids absolutely go bonkers over, it’s opening their LOL Surprise dolls. These are such a hit for girls ages 5-9 years. We purchased the LOL Dollhouse a few years ago and my girls would spend HOURS playing — loved to see it!
