Homegrown Traditions Selection of Toys with Brittney

Do you have a hard time picking the best gifts for the ones you love? It’s that time of the year where gift giving is top of the mind, at least it certainly is top of mine! As much as I love giving gifts, it can be really difficult to come up with original ideas that are unique and personal at the same time. I have rounded up my favorite items for different groups – from kids and teens to parents and neighbors. I will be sharing them over the next week to help make your selections easy!

First up, the best gifts for kids!

Kids are maybe one of the easiest to shop for since they will literally be thrilled with anything! But in my experience, it takes a special toy or gift to actually hold up over time. Although any old toy off the shelf will do, these toys are my absolute favorite for my kids! They are constantly played with and great for the wide range of ages we have in our home.

Kids Toys Selection

Here’s a closer look at each one and why it made the list of best kids gifts – be sure to check back tomorrow to see the teens gift guide (because we all know how hard they are to shop for!). I promise you won’t want to miss it!

MagTrax put together

1. Magnetic Marble Run

use “HOMEGROWN10” for 10% off

A new twist on an old classic, these magnetic marble runs can attach to any metal surface or use the magnetic plates to attach them to any wall. It’s seriously an ingenious idea with so many different formations and fantastic for kids of all ages.

Formidable Toys Sword

2. Kid Swords

use “HOMEGROWN10” for 10% off

A returning favorite from last year’s toy recommendations! These swords from Formidable Toys are still one of my boys’ favorites after a year. They are modular swords so you can mix and match the components to create new looks. It’s so much more durable than foam swords but also has a flexible tip for safety.

Promptly Journal

3. Prompted Journals

use “HOMEGROWN15” for 15% off orders placed by 12/25/20

I have been a fan of Promptly Journals from the very beginning and ordered one of the journals from the very first run. We have been using these for years and the prompts make it so simple to document your kid’s life from birth through 18 years old. Regardless of how old your child is, something is better than nothing and you can start where you are! There are also parent/child journals that you can participate in together.

4. Cooking Club Subscription

HOMEGROWN” will save $15 on a six month subscription or $20 on a year-long subscription

My kids adore Raddish Kids! It’s a once a month cooking kit for kids. It comes with some sort of kitchen item that you can add to your supplies along with different recipes and ingredient lists. It’s so kid and user friendly for all ages. You can even customize the recipes for dietary restrictions. There’s also a badge you can collect for your apron for each month and kids love the opportunity to spend time as a family working on something together. Plus, subscriptions are the gift that keeps on giving all year long!

Doctrine and Covenants Cards for 2021

5. Scripture Cards

use “HOMEGROWN15” for 15% off

Another repeat favorite because we have loved ours all year long. These new scripture cards are hot off the press for the upcoming Come Follow Me study in 2021. Kindred Kids has done a really good job of translating concepts that can be difficult to understand into a devotional that will digestible for kids and have an impact.

Shark and Puppy Hooded Towels

6. Hooded Animal Towels

use “HOMEGROWN” to get 2 towels for $65 (a savings of $13)

These Little Cooper Co towels are the size of a full towel with a personality that’s larger than life. There are so many options to choose from that each kid can have their own style and every towel even includes a little squeaker that your kids will love. You can also get them embroidered to personalized them!

7. Books

use “HOMEGROWN10” for 10% off

These are adorable board books that are beautifully illustrated. Many of them are religious in nature and coincide with scripture but there are also many other secular choices too (like career types, words, and colors). They offer a wonderful way to teach your kids about any topic in a beautiful and engaging way.

8. Imaginative Play Subscription

use “HOMEGROWN” to get the first month for only $2

What child doesn’t love getting mail in their name? Each month Sunnie Press sends a fun package in the mail that unfolds into a giant 20×26 poster with activities on each side. It is incredibly affordable and offers so many creative opportunities!

Cookie Class Cover

9. Cookie Cook Book

My kids love being in the kitchen! This book is so cute and easy to follow. It would be a fantastic gift to give with an apron and piping kit. In fact, I think I need to work through this and practice myself!
