Easy gift ideas for kids

Lauren Stewart shares the top subscription boxes to give as gifts for kids in your life.

WASHINGTON (WUSA 9) - Giving kids gifts for the holidays seems easy right?! Well think again, it can be hard to shop for those nieces or nephews and even your own child. Local mom blogger Lauren Stewart shared some subscription box ideas that can make a great gift for the little loved on in your life.




This is such fun subscription. My kids are SO excited when their books show up. As a mom I'm so excited because my kids are over the moon about books. Of course we all want them to be thrilled to be readers so this is right up the alley I want to send my kids. Each month's box comes with two books. Fun thing, they actually send the books in a box actually wrapped individually so they get to open them like a gift.




They do kids clothing subscription and we LOVE their stuff. The quality is amazing. First of all, each box is customized for each child. They start with their name and go from to their age, size, style etc. They ask for likes and dislikes on colors and styles, even down to "short skirts or big logos".



Koala Crate

Created to give preschoolers exposure to new materials, new tools, new techniques, and new concepts that encourage hands-on learning and fun. In the Rainbow Crate kids create stained glass art, a rainbow-dyed tote bag, and a snuggly cloud pillow.


Kiwi Crate

Created to encourage kids to build their creative confidence through hands-on science and art projects.  In the Solar System Crate, kids build a space mobile and meteor launcher!


Doodle Crate

created as an invitation for young makers to express themselves creatively by introducing fun materials and interesting techniques. In the Felt Terrarium Crate, kids learn the techniques of felt crafting and clay modeling to create a planter full of succulents. 


Tinker Crate


Created to expose kids to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) through fun and accessible projects. We believe this builds creative problem-solvers and lays a foundation for critical thinking.  In the Infinity Mirror Crate, kids wire up a light-up mirror and create an infinity illusion!
