Christmas Basket Gift Ideas For Kids

Christmas Basket Gift Ideas For Kids

I thought it’d be fun to round-up some of my favorite affordable Christmas basket ideas for kids. 2020 has been nothing short of a CRAZY year and I wanted to do something special!

I love making Lila a basket for holidays because it just feels so fun and festive. Sometimes I even take things she already has and incorporate them into the basket. It doesn’t have to be all new things! I love taking a holiday themed book that gets put away at the end of the season, and giving it to her in a basket as a fun way to present it in a fun way. We put away all of our holiday themed things in the same storage box so when I open it I am able to “shop” for a few things for her basket before she even sees them.

Coordinating Holiday Outfits

Coordinating Holiday Outfits

There are so many fun things to do and places to go this time of year. I love a good coordinating look and I also know these kids want to be comfortable. I love these looks because the black bottoms and black shoes are a staple to have in their wardrobe and the family plaid look makes it festive. I got them each an accessory to pull the look together with holiday cheer.

Boys Look: Plaid Shirt | Black Chinos | Black Boots | Santa Hat


Matching Christmas Pajamas

Matching Christmas Pajamas

Christmas pajamas are a tradition in our family. They are usually given as the first present on Christmas morning and all the cousins change into them right away and wear them for opening presents. While it is such a super fun tradition- I wanted to see Lila wear new Christmas jammies early this year. I went for the ones with the year on it because this is a year that we will never forget. Ha! These Santa slippers are way too cute. I got a few extra pairs for Lila’s close friends too. For the girls these festive scrunchies were too cute to pass up!
