Out-of-the-Box Gift Ideas for Your Preschooler at Kids 'R' Kids Bella Terra, preschool, daycare, childcare

Christmas is just around the corner. With such busy schedules, it can sometimes be hard to think of creative gift ideas for your preschooler. To save you some time and energy, here are some out-of-the-box gift ideas for your child.

Magazine Subscription

If your child likes nature, Ranger Rick is a good option. Another option is the Highlights Magazine, which is a fun learning subscription with a variety of topics and activities. 

Kinetic Sand

There are numerous options for kinetic sand. To include with this gift, buy or find a container and lid to store the sand in, as this sand is reusable and does not dry out. Add in miscellaneous items (like kitchen supplies, sand shovels and toys, or small toy trucks) to give your preschooler extra opportunities for imaginative play. 

Personalized Books

Online, you can find a variety of options for personalized books, where your child’s name gets to be the main character of a book. One example is “ ___________, the Little Digger” on In addition to books, a variety of other personalized items are available as well. Personalization turns an ordinary item into a special treasure for a child!

Stamps and Ink Pads

Your preschooler may enjoy receiving a variety of stamps and ink colors. Your local craft store should carry washable ink pads. Sometimes, these stamps go on clearance, making it an even better time to stock up. 

Gift Card

A gift card is a fun gift idea for any child, but there are certain places that would make the gift card more out-of-the-box. Giving your child a gift card to a craft store, for example, is a gift that keeps on giving. Not only does your child get to find fun crafts to start with, but your child then gets to enjoy the gift again when the craft is worked on.

Out-of-the-box gift ideas for your preschooler do not have to be overly expensive or complicated to purchase. Plus, these gift ideas listed above are either timeless or can be used time and time again.
