Got a little someone you’re trying to shop for this year? We’ve been there. Shopping for little kids can be tricky, the best toys of your day are no longer trendy or cool.

LEGO Brickheadz Reindeer, Elf and Elfie
When in doubt, always go with LEGO. While normally a little pricey, LEGO has some great deals during the holidays and if you’re looking for a little something extra to give out (perhaps as a stocking stuffer or as an additional present), this LEGO Brickheadz set makes the perfect holiday gift. This set comes with 281 pieces making three figurines (namely two elves and a reindeer). Especially as a Christmas present, this makes a great gift!
Exploding Kittens Card Game
The best toys are all good and fun, but there’s nothing better than quality time spent with the family, right? Well, your kids might not think so, but you know it’s true! And they’ll appreciate it when they’re older. Anyhow, one of our favorite board games this year is Exploding Kittens. Best for ages seven and up, this wacky card game is easy to learn and a blast to play.
The rules are simple, shuffle the deck and place it on the table. Players take turns picking cards and if you draw an Exploding Kitten, you’re out. However, depending on the other cards you’ve drawn, you can diffuse said kitten, attack other players, skip your turn and more! It’s fast-paced, fun and can be played with up to five players, making it great for the whole family.
